Tips and featureI noticed that some of you work in small sizes when doing a photo manipulation. Of course working in small size is easier to cut corners, but most of the time it looks unfinished. You should try working at a higher resolution with high res stocks. It is more challenging to blend elements and to go over each detail. It also allows you to print your work in great quality afterward. My works are always higher than 4000 px width or height depending of the orientation. I resize down a jpg version before uploading to dA. Another tip, use the pen tool for cutting. Nothing really compares to that tool when it's time to perfectly cut something from a photo.Tips and feature2 years ago in Personal More Like This

(RANT) What it is to be WRONGSo I just got another comment explaining to me how someone's friends are really mean and evil- and how only their cosplay friends act this way, and it's always just in the community… how the community is really horrible and twisted- and people are so friggin mean- and I just want to point out something of relevance and address this because it's really starting to confuse me… just because of this-(RANT) What it is to be WRONG2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's not 'just your cosplay friends' or 'just the community' it's everyone.
Humans act this way.
People want validation for their work, time, effort, and artists are one of the biggest roles in which the only validation you generally get only that, and sometimes people don't even get that pat on the back.
It's really tough out there.
So yes- human beings may attempt to out shine you, or put you down- or accuse you of things- it's habit. This would not apply just to the cosplay community- have you ever had to put your art in a gallery? Trust me- not everyone is going to be all thumbs up if your
Girl Scouts of AmericaThe Girl Scouts of America are marvellously allowing transgender girls (male-to-female) to join their ranks However, this group and their associates have decided that hate and discrimination are better ideologies for the Girl Scouts.Girl Scouts of America3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Children are innocent. Don't subject them to your transphobia or hatred. Let the adults shoulder that if you really have to throw your faeces at someone.
All I can think of is how hurt these poor little girl scouts must be. They already deal with enough, being born in the wrong body. Now you're telling them that they're bad people for something that they can't help? I'll tell you what. I wouldn't feel safe sending my daughter into a girl scout troop with a bunch of hateful Bible thumpers. I'd much rather send my daughter in with a troop that offers positive messages of un-conditional love and acceptance for mankind.
Keep in mind that the same group is trying to boycott the Girl Scouts
Opening Wig Commissions!Hello all!Opening Wig Commissions!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Due to an overwhelming positive response I am opening up wig commissions starting in June! At this point in time I am ready to start taking commissions to order bases for in order for those bases to be here in June so I can start work on them right away
I will be accepting 5 commissions to start.
The pricing will be done on a quote basis, which means that I will assess the price of the commission once I have all of the information on the project. It will factor in base wig cost + materials + work + shipping
To ensure that I can get you the best product possible, I am hoping that people commissioning me will use the following form so that I can know all of your stipulations up front
Cartoon or Realistic Style:
Wig colour preference:
Shipping preferences (folded inside out and ziplock bagged wig or shipping on wig head in a box):

I was fortunate enough to download the iTunes episode before it got pulled... but I don't trust these quasi-real digital downloads... so I just ordered the Friendship Express DVD on Amazon.com for $9.99. It's got five episodes: The 2-part pilot, Over a Barrel, Hearths Warming Eve and The Last Round-Up. http://www.amazon.com/My-Little-Pony-Friendship-Magic/dp/B0063FGF14
Anyway, they're not going to be able to pull and redo 15 gazillion DVDs that have already been produced... but later presses of the DVD might get altered, so who knows...
Anyway, Love and Tolerance!!! Just repeat it over and over until your inner pony is at ease.

SAVING MONEY AS A COSPLAYER... IS IT POSSIBLE!?Every single cosplayer in the world has one painful problem that we can all relate to: we're always broke. Always.SAVING MONEY AS A COSPLAYER... IS IT POSSIBLE!?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Fabric, thread, machines, paints, wood, tools, thermoplastics, LEDs, mould castings, brushes, dyes, wigs, make-up, contacts, boots, prosthetics, convention tickets, travel expenses, luggage, skin care, gym... the list goes on and on. Every single cent we earn, we constantly throw it all back into making our beloved costumes and feeling good for a few hours while stressing for months prior-hand. Non-cosplayers may not get it, but we do. For us, it's not a sacrifice. The chance to hone our creative spirit and create something from nothing is a rewarding life experience. Some think that the cost of an outfit is more valuable compared to medication and psychological sessions.
But like it not, we've all gotta come to a conclusion that the hobby must come to an end for us one day, and to have some money saved up for your next step in life is a greater advantage than having nothi

Google Maps had a Wikipedia layer that brought up links to Wikipedia articles connected to the region you were surveying. It was a brilliant way to learn about locations you have not yet visited, or to delve into an area's history.
A week or so ago, and apparently with no warning, Google removed this function and have now been flooded with complaints.
Is it just me or are big name companies growing increasingly incapable of doing ANYTHING right?

My opinion on cosplayOk so this has been nagging at me for a while now...My opinion on cosplay1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Lately (at least here in Sweden) cosplay has become this huge competition and there are a lot of people bashing other people if they don't have a "perfect" cosplay ...and it gets on my nerves like nothing else!! Who the hell decides what a "perfect" cosplay is anyway??
These days I hear oh so many people saying "They really didn't do that very good" or "OMG did you see that wig? horrible!" and stuff like that, and it just makes me so sad! Have they forgotten what cosplay is really about? Having FUN, and expressing our SHARED insert for something, making our favourite characters come to life, play around and meet new people. NOT looking down on others coz you think you're better than them! I makes me ashamed to be a part of this community.
I just read a post on fb where this girl wrote that she couldn't believe why people buy cosplays, and basically said everyone who doesn't make their entire cosplay themselves aren't real cosplayers.

Children's Literature, Morality + Changing IdealsIntroductionChildren's Literature, Morality + Changing Ideals2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
With the invention of the printing press in the fifteenth century, and its gradual integration into society, people at last had access to literature. It was William Caxton who first saw the opportunity to make money by printing and selling those stories and fables hitherto told by word of mouth.
At this time, literature did not have age-specific target audiences. Inevitably, some stories appealed to children more than others. Robin Hood was especially popular, while Aesop’s fables offered entertainment and life lessons to adults and children alike.
It is, of course, impossible to say exactly when and how literature was identified as a useful tool in teaching morality to children. It is speculated that there was no concept of ‘childhood’ before the eighteenth century, although historians debate this, as historians are apt to do.

Art-jam: No juzgues el cómic por su portada¿A que se lo pasaron genial dibujando a sus personajes como bebés para el art-jam anterior? Estuvo todo lleno de risas y juegos. Pero ya se nos ha venido encima febrero y es hora de ponernos un poco más serios.Art-jam: No juzgues el cómic por su portada2 years ago in Personal More Like This
¿A cuántos no les ha pasado que quieren publicitar su cómic y no disponen de una imagen apropiada? ¿Una bien especial, que se luzca en pendones en una expo, o al menos en los carteles fotocopiados que distribuirá su hermana pequeña por su colegio? ¿Una que puedan usar si a último momento se les antoja imprimir su trabajo para enseñárselo a alguien?
Poses heroicas, protagonistas luciéndose en todo su esplendor, composiciones intrincadas que buscan incluír más personajes de los que es prudente... todo aquello que consideren debería ser la primera impresión que se lleve alguien de su trabajo. Porque eso es lo que haremos este mes: portadas de webcómics.
