POKET PARTY (book) UPDATEI hope you had a wonderful Christmas and new year~ Here is an update for pre-order-ers !! Poket party is ready to be shipped.POKET PARTY (book) UPDATE3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I will be sending them in batches (around 45 to 50 at a time). I'll keep this page updated as to which orders I have sent and not so, etc.
My trips to the post office for those batches respectively will be on the 11th, 14th, 17th and 20th. It's safer to not post all at once and this will give me enough time to rest in between since I'll have to pack everything / fill in forms :3c
As soon as I pack your order for the batch, I'll contact you checking your address again! I will be keeping hold of your copy no matter what until I get your OK to post it. It's better to be safe than sorry and it has been a period of time
The average it takes to arrive from around the world is a week or two! Though this may take longer or shorter, post has a mind of it's own \o/ I really hope you do enjoy the book!
I'm happy if you are interested i
SHO-YOU: The Art of Magical ArtistsSho-You will be an e-artbook released in DECEMBER 2012 featuring stunning artwork from the best manga and anime artists within the online community. The e-artbook is completely free for anyone to read and will feature artist depictions of themselves as magical girls, in a whimsical adaptation of the discovery of their creative souls, to raise awareness for a non-profit charity called Artists for Charity.

It appears to be a virus/program called Keylogger.
A keylogger is a small program that can easily be downloaded onto a computer that can record keystrokes and mouse clicks. This means that it will record when you enter in your username and password into a field. Any field. A Keylogger virus will forward this information to a thief (either a person, or a program designed to collect usernames, as with this wave of spam). The scary thing about keyloggers is that they're not specific about what they record. If you type your DA passowrd, it will have your DA password. If you type your email password, it will have your email. And inside of your email are often confirmation records of other sites and passwords. So, if you have a keylogger and don't know it, you will be repeatedly giving away multiple passwords to the program.
Then please please please:

So to avoid confusing everyone, the artist alley is in the main exhibit hall on the 2nd floor. The hall is for dealers near the entrance, and artist tables are in the back half of the hall. Here's a map http://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/main-web-w/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/Exhibit-Full-letter.pdf but the map doesn't show each artist tables. If you walk down aisle 6, I should be on the first row of the artist alley tables.

Chances are you're here for one of a few reasons:
1) You were attracted by the title
2) You're here to prove me wrong
3) A combination of the above
4) You're an idiot
Well, in all honestly, I can assure you, you WILL be a better artist after you read this article.
Now, before I get started, I want to explain the purpose of this article. Its not a tutorial, its not me telling you what to do, its not 'OMG!

FAQHow long have you been drawing (digitally)?FAQ2 years ago in Personal Journal More Like This
How old are you?
What program do you use?
SAI, opencanvas 4, and photoshop elements 6
What do you use to draw?
Wacom Bamboo Tablet (model MTE-450) for drawing and an optic mouse for pixel art.
I use 0.5 B lead for pencil drawings. It's so soft and feels GOOD on the paper *___*
How did you find your style?
I found my 'style' by drawing often and making changes gradually to reflect my preferences (cutesy, big eyes, shortish torsos, bigger hands/feet) and practicing on increasing the range of things I enjoy drawing.
I think you have found your 'style' when you are happy with your art and can keep it fairly consistent. I love to juggle multiple 'styles' at once to keep myself interested in drawing. :3
Here's a bit of a timeline map for my chibies and regular art:

Ok so I wanted to come up with something fun & interesting sooooooo I decided the theme will be fairy tales/children's stories! I want you to draw any one (or more) of my three characters using that theme For instance you could draw Aika as little red riding hood and have Umi dressed as the big bad wolf (haha I'll need to draw that at some point XD). I'm not gonna be really strict with the theme I want to see how you interpret it in your own special way.
