H.O.W. Christmas Contest - Believe in U / No HaterRegarding about CHRISTMAS contest, I'd like to make something clear:H.O.W. Christmas Contest - Believe in U / No Hater3 years ago in Personal More Like This
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF & NO HATERS ALLOWED!
I got some comments about people who want to participate in the contest, but are afraid that their skills aren't great enough to compete with others. Those thinking as such, please: STOP THINKING LIKE THAT! When I do contests like these, the first goal I'm aiming is to let artists here have fun making whatever they want, their own creation, with something I helped created. You are all artists and when you decided to embark on that path, it's mostly always for a single reason: passion. Yes, I made the prizes of this contest quite interesting, but leave that out of your mind. Take this contest as an opportunity to challenge your skills, a way to improve yourself and get better. Take it as a pleasure too, to play with someone else's creation and make it your own, as you see fit. That's how you can unlock your potential. Because at the end, whether you win the

I’m certain there are people who dislike me. Some I come to know through whisperings because I have eyes everyyyyywheeeeere.
However, I don’t feel the need to acknowledge them or do anything about it unless they are causing any real harm, especially to people I care about.
There is a popular quote that I like referencing for this topic, which gets the message across in a charming way:
“You can be a juicy, ripe peach and there’s still going to be someone who doesn’t like peaches, so you can either submit to someone’s criticism of you, or you can get on with the business of being your own amazing self who attracts other like-minded people that appreciat

So we went to Toycon last Saturday and as usual I... didn't really get to take pictures of toys and stuff. It was so crowded around the merchandise hall that I couldn't stop and take photos because people were constantly threading through and shoving. It was like a river of people with an actual current, hahah! Sometimes I'd find a friend to chat with but we'd eventually be pulled apart by the tide, it was kind of funny.
I wanted to wear something simple and comfortable so I posted on my Facebook that I would wear my old Ichigo cosplay in his Karakura High uniform. The Bleach manga is so crazy now that it just made me miss the days when Bleach was simple.
I think this is the last decent picture of myself that I have wearing this, and it was taken ages ago.
And here it is on me again, with a new wig, better contact lenses, better wig styling and cosplay makeup skills (somewhat), and Kon plush that was give

I get many questions from people who want to use my photos somehow – I state they need my permission, but I am too busy to answer their notes and comments at the same time. Very stupid situation that is in fact a trap for all those who are polite and really ask for permission
That’s why I decided to create some general rules.
And to make it user friendly, I chose the form of questions and answers.
I hope they fit any situation you might think about, but if you get any idea, please, do not hesitate to comment!
Those rules will be also on the main page of my account and I will link to them through every of my new deviations
RULES FOR USING MY WORK

Today it is a short journal without photos, sorry.
I would like to give you one important advice, so I hope it can be still useful
I see many people try to sell prints here. And they are often sad they have not sold anything yet.
But at the same time I see they do the same mistake. So:
HOW PEOPLE TRY TO SELL THEIR WORK AS A PRINT?
1. you took a photo (drew a picture). It is nice, so you want to post it as a deviation.
2. you edit it. Making it sharper, more colourful, adding contrast, CHANGING a size to some 850x600px, for example.
3. you post it as a deviation.
4. you look at your deviation and think "hm, it looks pretty cool! Maybe somebody can buy it. I will allow it as a print."
5. you click at "submit as a print" and in "print submission" option you just scroll down and click at "SUBMIT AS A PRINT".
6. now deviation in your gallery has that cool "buy this print" green button and you are excited about somebody buying it.
7. you are disappointed that nobody bought it.

Why I crossplayIt's the male to female crossplays that usually get stranger looks from the crowd. I understand why and I'm actually fine with it.Why I crossplay1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've been asked quite a lot in my years of cosplaying why I like to dress up as a girl at times. I was never able to give a definite answer back then. I suppose it was because I wasn't aware of why I did such a thing.
One reason would be that sometimes, I really just like the character's design. It's a hobby of mine to create things, and being able to materialize something I love makes me happy.
However now I believe I found the core reason of why I do it. Lately I've been delving deeper into doing more complicated costumes such as Capt. Jack Sparrow. In doing those, I realised that it's all about the transformation. Being a costume enthusiast ever since I was little, I've always found a certain joy in being able to turn myself into all sorts of characters. This carried over into my adulthood and I wanted to challenge myself even more.
There's so much prepa

Q: Where did you get your wig?
A: My Finn made it for me. It was made out of two long wigs-- one 48 inch, one 60 inch. They were purchased on Ebay. I don't know the seller, sorry!
Q: How did you do the makeup?
A: It is Ben Nye Character Series cream makeup in Ghoul Grey (CB-8). It was applied using latex makeup sponges and sealed with Ben Nye Neutral Set Colorless Powder and hairspray. I do not recommend using hairspray unless you have someone helping you apply the makeup.
You can buy it here: http://www.frendsbeautysupplyonline.com/bennyecharacterbasecb-8ghoulgrey.aspx for only $3.40!
Q: How much makeup did you use?
A: Evicted! : Medium Coverage (face, neck, chest, shoulders, arms, hands)
Henchmen: Medium Coverage (face, neck, chest, shoulders, arms, hands)
It Came From the Nightosphere**: Minimum Coverage (face, neck, hands)

First of all I would like to apologize for not being able to reply on all your lovely comments and artworks right away. I'm writing my Masters thesis at the moment and spend a lot of time in the laboratory and I find it more and more difficult to keep up with all the messages I'm receiving. I'm afraid I may not be able to answer every comment in the future But I want you to know that your messages mean the world to me!! I love all your support and interest in my work. It's truly all of you who inspire me to do what I do and I deeply appreciate every single message. You guys are awesome!

Believe In YourselfJust some friendly artistic advice from someone who has been drawing for nearly four decades...Believe In Yourself2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Believe it yourself. When you sit down to draw, believe that the outcome will be successful. Failure at drawing comes from not trying hard enough, not working hard enough, and not believing that you can get the job done. Success comes from working hard, learning from past mistakes, and believing that you can and will rises to the occasion. If you are confident that you will do well each time you sit down to draw, you will do better work than the time before. You might not always get things right, or be satisfied with your outcomes, but you will be moving forward as an artist. Repetition. It's not the only way to improve, but it's the only GUARANTEED way to do it. The more you draw, the better you'll get at it. The more you ink, the better you get at it. The more you color, the better you get at it. Never fear your drawing table (Wacom, etc). You aren't going to be dismantling nuc

You in Pinas? Grab a Kwentillion!Today I was on break at my workplace and strolled around National Bookstore, when I glanced upon this magazine with a weird name and a cover fit for the international eye - KWENTILLION.You in Pinas? Grab a Kwentillion!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
At a glance, the cover is screaming with mouth-watering fantasy art from one of my idols - Chester Ocampo (a.k.a. chesterocampo), then the bottom header reads - Budjette Tan, Kajo Baldisimo, Andrew Drilon and more...
Budjette and Kajo, to those who don't know, are the crazy masterminds behind the mind-blowing graphic series TRESE. If you have been ignoring these on the bookstands, do yourself a favor and buy ALL four books, for heaven's sake! Incidentally, Budjette is half of the editorial duo behind Kwentillon. The other one is Paolo Chikiamco.
I'm just gonna lay it down plain and simple - Kwentillion is Pinoy Heavy Metal waiting to happen.
This first issue features amazing samples of Pinoy artistry - The Last Datu by Budjette and Kajo; Poso Maximo by Robert Magnusan; Hi
