Fake itOne of the best pieces of advice I've ever received has been "fake it till ya make it." I took it to heart.Fake it2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I thought I was a good artist before I was. I acted like a professional before I was. I put out my first instructional video before I started working professionally. I was working professionally when I didn't know what I was doing. I acted like an extrovert when I was an introvert. I acted like a businessperson when I hadn't made a dime. I acted like a marketer when I hadn't sold anything.

Screentones Resource Compilation
What are they and where do I find them?
From the original article Screentone or are you...? by bakenekogirl!
What are Screentones?
"Screentone (or Halftone) is a technique for applying textures and shades to drawings, used as an alternative to hatching. In the conventional process, patterns are transferred to paper from preprinted sheets, but the technique is also simulated in computer graphics. It is also known by the common brand names Zip-A-Tone (1937, now defunct), Chart-Pak (1949), and Letratone (1966, from Letraset)."
A traditional screentone sheet consists of a flexible transparent backing, the printed texture, and a wax adhesive layer. The sheet is applied to the paper, adhesive down, and rubbed with a stylus on t

New Sailor Moon Anime!This is my first journal/blog here, forgive me for any typos and the like ; ]New Sailor Moon Anime!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
No one has posted this yet! Including all the other Sailor Moon groups I'm a part of— sans just one! Sailor Moon is getting a BRAND NEW anime! It's set to be released worldwide in Summer of 2013!
Here are some quick facts before I link you:
• Release set for Summer 2013, Worldwide.
• BRAND NEW anime, not a remake of the old. (Obviously it will be to an extent)
• Made for more mature audiences, specifically the old/original fans.
• Based more closely to the manga than the original anime.
• It's not a film/movie, it's an actual anime series.
• Momoiro Clover Z are doing a Theme Song for it (It's not known if it's an existing song or new)
• Vol. 6 of the manga comes out in the US this Tuesday! (July 10)
• Here's that link I mentioned : D http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-07-06/sailor-moon-manga-gets-new-anime-in-summer-2013

Darker Than Black, Whiter Than White ContestI ran this contest in my other group. I'm pretty sure you guys would enjoy this as much as we would surely enjoy receiving submissions for this.Darker Than Black, Whiter Than White Contest3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here is a way to promote your original characters. Pick two of your best characters, or one of your versatile character. All the possibilities and scenario would be up to you. The object of the contest is for you to give your own interpretation of good and bad, or evil and good. The title is just a general example, it would be up to you to utilize every angle and scenario you can think of what you think best describe good and bad. You have the privilege to submit two entries but of course only one would be chosen. You can either work with a writer, or a fellow artist, or alone, it would be your choice how you think this entry will go. And this is open to all interpretation, written or artwork or flash animation, or whatever tool you can think of, as long as it abides

Summer Art Giveaway! (Fourth Winner drawn)Hello, everyone!Summer Art Giveaway! (Fourth Winner drawn)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Summer holidays have now officially hit and what better to do with all this free time than practice with my art? Plus, I'd like to have the opportunity to draw different types of characters..
How do I enter?
To make things easier than my last giveaway, I'm going to request that people favorite this journal instead of just leaving a comment. That way, I can use a random number generator and then use the favorite numbers to decide who the winner of the draw is! So be sure to favorite this journal and hey if you'd like you can also leave a comment
What will I be offering?
Now, here's the catch. If I do draw your name in a draw, I will note you and ask you for your request. You are allowed to request a certain character-- but I decide the format, the pose and everything else. Give me as much info as you can and I'll try to portray your character right: but there's no telling what kind of format things will be drawn in! Chibi, portrait, fullbody, halfbody..? It's
Rise of the Guardians review/reflectionI've noticed a common thread in Dreamworks movies concerning the main characters; they're all outsiders, rejects. They don't quite fit into the mold they've been assigned. Jack Frost is probably the most rejected of all of DW's main characters. Waking up in a frozen lake, knowing not where he came from or who he is, the Man in the Moon tells him his name, and nothing else. Upon finding a little colonial town, he discovers that not only can no one see him, but he is intangible as well.Rise of the Guardians review/reflection2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So begins 300 years of soul searching and aimless merry making. In that time, Jack has made foils out of the Guardians (Cossak with a heart of gold Santa, resentful but caring Bunymund, scatterbrained and determined Tooth, and the powerful but loving dreamweaver Sandman), who summon kidnap him to make him a guardian, on the Moon's orders.
It seems the spirit Pitch, the boogeyman, has come to kill the guardians, leaving nothing to counter his desolation and fear. Pitch is a fascinating character, not evil

Now, again as always, remember if you want to download the song, click on the mp3 link I gave you, scroll down and just click on the words -MP3 を抽出- below the graph stating 'streaming and extracting.' Also, the videos I posted would sometimes be copyrighted. DO NOT FEAR. If you only want to hear the song, go to my mp3 link I gave you and just press the play button below the picture ^^
In the rankings, I would predict which of the newest and hottest songs would enter the next week's rankings, so if you see 'PREDICTED' in front, it means I've mentioned it in my last journal and it has entered the rankings ^^
HAVE FUN!!!! ^^
A song has to get a minumum of 14,000 views to enter the rankings.

How To Draw Manga: Sketching Manga Style 4 - All About Perspective
(here's a link to a blog where you can read more about the book: http://parkablogs.com/node/6030 )
I realized not too long ago, this autumn actually, that I really needed to learn perspective. My boyfriend taught me some basics, as he's really good at perspective drawing, and really good at teaching, so I did learn quite a lot then
but I figured I would need a book on the subject too. I already had David Chelsea's "Perspective! For Comic Book Artists" but I found it to be a bit too good, or, too complicated for someone who didn't even know one-point-perspective..
I then somehow learned about this book, the "All About Perspective" one that I'm writing about in this journal entry, and after reading some book reviews, especially the one I linked to under the photo I took, I realized I needed this book.

Gerard-- a life in quotes (part 1)"There’s angst but it’s different. I think we’re rebelling now as a rock band. We’re trying to keep it pure, but we’re not playing victims anymore. We’ve realized that we’re one of the youngest bands at our size. So there’s a responsibility that comes with that, whether it’s to fans or to outside listeners who aren’t fans, to be the greatest American rock band. That was the goal.

All of my birthdays have always been about stuff. Stuff I don't want, stuff I definitely don't need.
I'm surrounded by very giving people, and I'm always honored by how gracious my friends are, but when a guy gets to a
