Saber WIP: many photos *_*~ (ECG)Hey people,Saber WIP: many photos *_*~ (ECG)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
sry for being so late with updating you with my latest BIG project.
I'm working on this costume since January and finally I see the end of the long tunnel coming XD.
I wanna show you my now finished Saber Gift Figure armor!
If you don't know that version, you can see the reference here ---> http://www.ncsx.com/2009/012609/fate_stay_saber_gift.htm
If you like what you'll see please visit my facebook artist page as well ;D. There are always ALL progress photos form the stuff I am working on ^.^ ->>> http://facebook.com/calssara.cosplay
well let's start with the raw armor parts, completely unpainted.
I used WOBLAS FINEST ART as my material. It's a thermoplastic material with a mix out of plastic and wood. It's close to Wonderflex, but thicker, more durable and it's easier to make round shapes l shoulders, knees and chest plates. You can also melt the material together and use it as thermoplastic modeling clay!
This is my VERY first armor and even a bloody begin
Remembrance Day FeatureRemembrance Day Feature1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
They shall not grown old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
Lest we forget.
The above is an extract from a poem called "For the Fallen" and was written in 1914 by Laurence Binyon. London-born Binyon wrote it 7 weeks after the outbreak of World War 1. British newspapers teemed with the news of the dead who'd fallen in battle, and it was against the backdrop of these bleak days that he wrote this poem. This verse, known today as The Ode for the Returned and Services League [RSL], has been recited at all military commemoration services for almost the last century. 'Lest we forget' is usually intoned at the end as a mark or respect and gratitude for those who served.
There are two such services for which we most associate this poem with: ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day. Today is, of course, the latter.
Remembrance day is he

Last year I visited a craft fair and discovered in the paper decoration / paper crafting a super great new material.
Maybe some of you know it.
But here in german Cosplay scene, and perhaps also for many other countries it's really a novelty.
It can be used for paper decoration, for gemstones, paint and much more.

Beast/Gijinka Information -updated-Beast/Gijinka InformationBeast/Gijinka Information -updated-4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Detailed descriptions on both the beasts and the Gijinka races. Please note that these are just examples to get your ideas going, it is in no way a rule book. Be creative with your character designs.
Also, please remember that the Gijinka are all MORTAL. They are just like humans, but slightly different in that they have beast features and can use limited magic. They do not have super strength, or live on the moon, or shapeshift, for example. Also, please remember that using more than just the occasional small spell could severely damage your character. Make sure to read the Magic info journal if you're confused about this.
The beasts, while rare, also live on Voleros. They are mostly hard to find, but live in the forests, ocean or mountains around Voleros. This does not mean that the Gijinka are related to them in anyway, just that the Gijinka are more a part of nature than humans are. (And no, humans do not exist on Voleros.)
Your character MUST be a part
Tips para posar con tu cosplayBasado en el tutorial de *behindinfinity http://behindinfinity.deviantart.com/, basicamente traducido xD con algunos aditamentosTips para posar con tu cosplay5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Cosplay no es solo hacer y usar el traje, no nos podemos olvidar de la actitud.
Una parte importante dle cosplay es personificar al personaje, desde la expresión coorporal hasta la facial y la personalidad. Tienes que conocer tu personaje para personificarlo mejor!. Ademas, cuando usas cosplay en una convención es inevitable que quieran tomarte fotos, la foto que tomen es como te recordara la persona que la tomo y las que la vean pues regularmente estas acaban en internet, asi que veamos formas de mejorar esto!
Una sonrisa irreal y fuera de las que utiliza el personaje arruina la foto. Busca imagenes de referencia para que veas que expresiones o poses deberias tomar a la hora de las fotos.

Redesign a character contest!If there's something we love about fan art is how artists take artistic liberties and portray characters in their own style and different scenarios we wouldn't see otherwise. Some people will say that fan art is unoriginal, but from experience there's a lot of creativity involved when it comes to depicting your favourite characters in a different light, deviating from the way they were designed by their creators.Redesign a character contest!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This is why, inspired by the Pokedesign Challenge by *CrazyRatty on Tumblr, your friendly neighborhood Fan Art CVs decided to host a fun little contest for you!
How it works:
Pick a character from any fandom you like.
Come up with at least 3 different re-designs for them and put them in a single image.

he dates stated are the deadlines. I've categorized them according to the prizes that are already available, as I know most (not all) of you look at contests this way. Keep in mind that these dates and prizes are all temporary. Deadlines may be extended by contest hosts and additions to prizes are often made by generous deviants, so updates to this blog may be made monthly or in every two weeks or daily (would depend on my mood). Every contest deserves to be read in the original so please check them out.
Mind you, most (if not all) of those featured here are contests that involve drawings and the like. You can also find them on my favorites folders one and two. If you have contests of your own or somebody else's that aren't here, please tell me so I can feature them.
