David Bowie was the living embodiment of this prevailing ‘60’s mantra. Never had such a waiflike cultural figure of a rebel so discombobulated and terrified the established social order. In a time of gender role experimentation and redefinition, he was the oddly attractive symbol of the

Hello~ I'm finally taking orders for wig commissions. Please read the info below if you're interested in getting a wig styled by me. ^^ I'm only taking limited orders per time period since I need to work on my own cosplays as well.
Red-cluster Wig Commissions
I'm just a wig lover who might just be "a little" obsessed with wig styling. My aim in doing wig commissions is to provide fellow cosplayers with wigs that best suited to them. I can't promise to make the wigs "exactly" as the wigs of *insert cosplayer's name here* But I can promise that I will make the wig that looks good on you and remains accurate to the original style of the character you choose to cosplay.
For some examples
This weekend I painted a large mural in Chinatown!I love painting large and it is always an honor to be asked by a wonderful organization to paint at their space and represent their community visually. This week I was asked to paint a piece in Oakland Chinatown at Lincoln Square. An amazing community center the has droves of smiling people enjoying the giant ship like playgrounds, the expansive b-ball courts, and sword fighting in the lawn bowling court, to name a few. The ages ranges from 1 to 100+ and all the folks were super stoked to see this painting in process. My good friend Christopher Mackessy, ( who took most of the photos for the deviantART Gear Shop,) is also a painter, As well as a teacher. He procured the walls through the community center with the blessings and we spent the last 2 days painting. Many of his students came out and we fitted them with brushes and oversized tee shirts and they went to town with our instruction.

9 reasons to adore OIL PAINT1. FORGIVING - Oil is, even today, still one of the easiest and most forgiving mediums you can work in. Creating an oil painting is in fact relatively easy compared to other mediums such as watercolor or pastels.9 reasons to adore OIL PAINT2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
2. EASY TO CONTROL - Oil paints are easy to put onto a canvas or panel. You just put some paint on your brush and rub it on the canvas or panel. The paint will generally not run or move.
3. SMOOTH BLENDING - Oil paints are king of the ring when blending colors together and creating subtle blends. Wet-on-wet is the sure fire way to get a smooth transition in your painting.
4. COLOR STABILITY - One great property of oil paints is that they don't change color when they dry as opposed, for example, to acrylics or watercolor. Oils stay pretty-much the same for a long period of time (however, in a very long period of time, oil paintings have tendency to yellow).
5. EASY TO REMAKE - It's simple, just scrape the paint off with a paint knife and repa
9 reasons to appreciate ACRYLICS1. UNIVERSALITY - Acrylic are probably the most versatile of paints. You can thin them with water and use as watercolor (they will remain permanent upon drying, unlike watercolor), apply them in full strength, create textures.9 reasons to appreciate ACRYLICS2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
2. COMBINABLE - This medium is very suitable to be combined with anything you wish - watercolor, ink, pencils, oils... Free your imagination and experiment!
3. NUMEROUS SUITABLE SURFACES - Acrylics can be used on paper, canvas, wood, metal and many more surfaces (this is true, even though they don't adhere towards some surfaces as promptly as oils). This is a great advantage, when you get used to this medium, you can paint at whatever material you've got available.
4. DON'T STINK - That's right, all of you that have experienced headaches caused by oil paint might just appreciate an acrylic vacation!
5. FAST DRYING TIME - Composition doesn't seem right after you put down your first layer? This is not a problem, wait half an hour

Sesshomaru's Name....This time, we're going to take a hard look at Sesshomaru's name and it's translation.Sesshomaru's Name....3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Sesshomaru" breaks into three kanji characters:
殺 生 丸
or Sesshomaru together.
Let's look at them one at a time:
This is a ten stroke character that is pronounced "se-tsu" or サイ.
Generally, it can mean one of the following:
kill, murder, slay, suppress, stifle, smother
It is character 488 in A Guide to Remembering Japanese Characters, and appears on page 150.
If we dissect setsu, we get the following:
The first half of setsu is a corruption of the character for "pig" (character 1670 page 533) and the second half is the character for "strike/weapon in the hand" (character 153 page 43).
Together, they make up the single kanji "setsu" and it represents to kill with a weapon.
The next character of his name is 生 , which is a five stroke character, (number 42 on page 12 of the aforementioned book), and while in thi

'Disability' is not 'deficit'.Today, July 14th, is Disability Awareness Day.'Disability' is not 'deficit'.2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
People who do not have disabilities are fortunate in some ways; for example, they don't have to worry about whether they will be able to exit a burning building, wake up with excruciating pain, or have to choose between purchasing expensive medications that can keep them alive and paying their rent. However, please do not pity those of us who do, for having a disability does not automatically make someone less "lucky" than others.
It has nothing to do with luck.
I realize from firsthand experience that having a disability is extraordinarily challenging. Living with pain, as one example, must be beyond imagination. Living with suicidal thoughts and not knowing whether you will wake up in the morning because of all the medications you have to take for your disability is terrifying. It takes a lot of strength sometimes just to get up in the morning and face a day that is undou

Storm clouds cover the sun and darken the skies. It is time for a time–out, a reminder of the insignificance of our troubles when set against the full fury of nature, a cleansing of the landscape’s abused palate, and maybe a light show to make up for any inconvenience.

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.

I made a few modifications in the contest, according to the majority votes.
This is a contest of new Ben 10 designs.
The rule is simple: youŽll give a new look to Ben 10 characters. Clothes, hair, muscles or fat, etc. You can make them look futuristic, steampunk, vintage, any style you like. Acessories - weapons, magic stuff, vehicles, scars, etc - may be included or not.
The redesign also concerns graphic style. The drawings can be realistic, mangaish, psychodelic, art nouveau... - even cartoonish, as long as it hasnŽt anything to do with Omniverse style.
A few good examples :
The characters just have to be recognizable. Gwen, for example. You can make her hair short or long, curly or straight, but she must
