Cosplay Tutorial: Molding and casting your piecesThis tutorial is based on how to use Smooth-on's Oomoo- and Smooth-cast series materials for cosplay purposes. There is little special too about using fiberglass instead of smooth-cast. Hope you enjoy!Cosplay Tutorial: Molding and casting your pieces2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok. Lets get started!
"I need five identically same looking parts like in that center of the picture for my cosplay but making them one by one would take LOTS of time. What to do?"
If you have the right materials then the answer is simple: "Make one sharp prototype of that piece then mold it and cast it."
Here are the materials you need:
- Modelling paste for making the prototype (or what ever material you like. It won't affect to the final product)
- Smooth-On's Oomoo 25 or 30 for making the mold (mold max 20-40 works too but it' need more skill to use. So i recommend Oomoo)
- Smooth-On's Smoothcast series for casting (i recommend smooth-cast 320 because it is easy to paint with spray paint)
(Smooth-On got lot of resellers in few countries. Here in Finland is Silcom.fi who sells their p

This is all the tutorials, facts, tips and hints about swordmaking all gathered into one news topic. The League of Swordmakers exists to gather all the swordmakers of DeviantArt together. However if people would like to become swordmakers then they need knowledge about swordmaking. So people who are intrested in swordmaking are shown this news topic. It contains all the knowledge about swordmaking made on DeviantArt. However this mainly deals with building eastern swords namely katana's. By learning how to make Katana's, you can use that knowledge to make other swords. This News Topic will be updated with new tutorials.

Those deviants truly embodying the spirit of the project by continuing to create and submit next chapters – no matter the story’s refusal to go along with their proposed direction. The zeitgeist is a powerful force, but the artist must know when to sail against the been-there-done-that. And our writers, artists and poets have been doing that week after week. So many artists and writers continue to send in wonderful material week after week.
We have decided to extend the writing deadline for the last chapter to December 31 and we're

After having discussions with one of my watchers :iconnescaro: , he showed me some awesome crossover scenarios with Evangelion with other Marvel and even Anime characters so I decided to add some story into my current Symbiote/Evangelion Art Series. This is simply ideas I got and I doubt this will lead itself into a fanfic series as I'm focusing all my writings into the completion of Inferior Spider-Man. So think of this as a What-if scenario/backstory of the symbiote bonded Eva characters:
Shinji Ikari/Agent Venom: In this scenario Shinj has a more confident and mature than the canon version in the original series along with the fact both parents are alive, but regrettably have to work so much at NERV that Shinji lives with his aunt and uncle. However despite these positive things in his life, Shinji lost his legs wgen he was 10 after saving a little girl from a drunk driver and was hit instead.

I've been waiting for this for forever!!!
Its a full 3D CGI film that promises a more true-to-Heinlein source material story and set pieces. Basically, lots of epic Power Armour, and lots of Bugs.
Director Shinji Aramaki mentions how the original 1988 Japanese Starship Troopers OVA captured his imagination and made him an instant fan as a child, and now that he has a chance to pay some homage to his inspiration I really like how he references bits of the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:StarshipTroopers%28OVA%29.gif 1988 armour design in the new powersuit. I'm also really excited to see what the Marauder exo armour would turn out to look like....
Suffice to say, when I was in my teens and I saw this power armour design on the net, it blew my mind and left such a lasting impression that few post 80's mecha designs have come close to taking my breath away like the 1988 Powered Armour

When recently asked how his political candidate would explain certain positions taken during the
nomination process with contrary positions to be taken during the general election, the campaign chief
replied that stated political positions were “like an Etch A Sketch,”—meaning they could simply be
flipped over, erased and begun over from scratch.
Were it that adult life were as simple as a happy Etch A Sketch memory from childhood.
(The campaign chief took heavy heat for his flippant, if truthful, statement.) The incident made
me wonder how many of us had early experiences as “sketch artists” with that incredible red toy that
has become almost standard issue for so many children still to this day.

Hello there! Before we get started, there's something you've got to know. You have to answer your questions through your OC.

First imagined as a bedtime tale for his son by Kenneth Grahame in 1908, The Wind in the Willows has remained in the top twenty children’s stories ever since. But things have been getting weird out in the Willows, as the new comic on deviantART, Weirding Willows, will attest to.

One of the best aspects of being in my position here at deviantART is the privilege to curate salons with artists of every medium and success level imaginable, art appreciators, writers, and educators from all points of light within the deviantART community inviting them to make the trek to HQ for what always manifests as an inspiring, thoughtful, educative, and enlightening dialogue.
