How to be happy?Hi pals,How to be happy?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
just a short update
Recently, my best friend Allerlei posted a journal about her life – in short she said everything is cool except of her job. Fortunately it changed and she seems to be confident also with her career.
If I were supposed to write about my life in short, I can say just „opposite to Allerlei“.
You might remember how unhappy and unsure I was when I could not get a job and I even ended as an employee of an organisation related to a cult. A year ago I moved to Prague, as I got a job here.
I love my job.
It is fantastic, I really do what I like, it seems everybody is satisfied with my work and maybe for the first time in my life, I feel appreciated there. I can learn something new almost every day, the system is set up in a way that reduces stress and is very helpful. I like my colleagues. My position is to be a right hand of managers. No, not just a secretary. Those managers are even younger than me and so self-confident in a good way that

For the halfmask:
I was heavily inspired by Volpin's Portal Gun tutorial, even though I wasn't making the gun. I tried to follow his process, since I knew that the finished mask had to have the same plastic-y glossy finish. However, Volpin is a crafting genius and used a lot of vague, but still very technical, mumbo-jumbo in his descriptions so I interpreted it as best I could.
Also, the foam carving and the gesso sanding is very messy and will leave dust everywhere. Don't do it indoors! I was stupid and pretty much did this entire project in my bedroom. Everything is still kinda dusty and I probably have cancer or something from breathing it in.
Step one was gathering the materials:

Dark and Horror Themed DD Week!Updates in the bottom of the journalDark and Horror Themed DD Week!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Hello everyone :iconlazingplz:
I swear this has been the busiest and most exhausting week I've had in months! I had to give my classmates a lesson about the signalling pathways in which parasitic plants infect other plants I was very tight on time both while preparing for it and while explaining it to them. So I've been missing in action for the whole week, I didn't even have time to put up #Manga Mondays, . But the worst of it all is that this week is the Dark & Horror Themed DD Week and I was absolutely unable to promote it through my journal like I did last month... I'm very not amused :iconsotiredplz:.
So without further ado, let me introduce you to the haunting DDs that I've selected to be featured as part of this themed DD week so far

COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!Hi guys!! Thank you as always to all watchers and everyone who faves and comments - I'm so sorry I don't have much time these days to reply to everything, but I definitely do read and appreciate them all!COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been asked so many times I've lost count to put together a makeup tutorial on how I do my cos makeup - and I finally did it!
I hope this is a little helpful, although some disclaimers - I have Caucasian features, so my makeup will be very different to someone with a different face shape. I use a lot of eyemakeup, much more than a lot of people, just because I do lol. My eyes a pretty big naturally, so I line them right up the edge, as opposed to widening the eye by drawing further out. A few things like that to bear in mind ^_^ That said, hope you enjoy! *chu*

You can feel the positive and silly atmosphere in it and it immediatly gives you this good feeling...makes you wanna smile = D, and of course it is well drawn as well !
I wanna thank you all guys for joining in this little competition, wish I could offer alot more, but this is what I got. Still, I'm very surprised that so MANY still entered, even if it meant that only one will be the winner of the contest, and I really wonder why so many joined for such small prize XD..

Post-Processing ProcessesSo I thought I'd write a little about what I do to my photos once I'm back home. But before I explain that, it needs pointing out that I shoot in RAW because I want to make all the processing decisions instead of my camera. If you're unfamiliar with the format, RAW files are basically unembellished sensor data. When you shoot in JPEG your camera will make all sorts of decisions about saturation and light and they may or many not look satisfactory to you. So I, like many photographers with RAW-enabled cameras, take the camera's opinions out of the equation.Post-Processing Processes3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Only basic saturation boost to show off the sunlight.
In order to help me remember what a scene was like I fire off a couple of shots with my iPhone and I use these as a non-definitive reference for colour and lighting levels - it's just to jog my memory if you like. You could accomplish the same thing by just taking some JPEGs with your DSLR, but I like to leave those settings alone once I'm out and about.

Into the Realm
“Evening songs of burning wood and mead and laughter, of blood and hunts and fellowship: our halls echo with memories old and new. A day through forest and field, chasing the smell of spring, a moment above the morning mist to steal a glimpse of seas twinkling on the horizon; an eternity before our gates, in wonderment at the carved quests of heroes, coming alive at a fingertip’s request. Witness a lifetime into the realm… it is quite the adventure.”
