I thought I'd link where I got her and some stuff about her kind. This focuses on the 21-23 bodies and the 11-23cm heads (these heads are all the same size).
-This is the best FAQ I have found, so read this before you read mine
-This is also a great video and contains a lot of information about Obitsu, and a cute review.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New YearHello fellow friends, watchers and everyone else who stumbles upon this...Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Today is the 4th Advent, in not even 6 (for some people 7) days is Christmas Eve. Because I won't be at home from Christmas until the 29th or even 30th of December I decided to put up a nice Feature of Christmas Art. Today I had my Mum, her boyfriend and his father over for dinner. We had fried trout filets, boiled potatoes and cucumber sald and a nice apple-vanilla-cinnamon junket as Dessert. I wanted to do something for them - they always support me so much and the father of my mum's boyfriend invites us for dinner so often and he just won't let me pay when we go to a restaurant. So yeah - this is the only chance I have to invite all of them for dinner...and it was so nice even though a lot of work - I guess I will do it again I think somewhere around next year - maybe in April before Easter Sunday or something like that...maybe earlier..I don't know yet ^^ I'm

How to make money outside and inside DeviantArtThis is meant more for younger, newer deviants who have run into a spot of trouble making some extra cash,How to make money outside and inside DeviantArt4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I see many people posting how they make no money on their prints through DeviantArt.
To me, it just seems like all you need is a lesson in business.
First, before you do anything, realize what our "Target Audience" is.
Do you draw anime? Or do you take pictures of cute animals? Or are you into realism? Let's face it, you aren't going to find very many older people who enjoy fine art on the internet. Try and figure out what age group your work appeals to.
Second, use DeviantArt as your "Warehouse"
DeviantArt is great. You can showcase your products and then ship them to people without you doing anything. However it is an Art Community. In DeviantArt, you work is only shown to other artists, to get more money you have to use DeviantArt as your Warehouse. It will supply the customer, but you need to bring the customer to the site.
Deviantart is fairly appealing, but lets face it, man
BIG THANKSSeriously, you guys are the best--I just want to bear hug you all and somehow payback every unearned pennie.BIG THANKS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I want to let you know that I have more than I need now to take care of the major things-- I've sent a print to the artshow already and I should be able to go to the doctor by the end of next week. As strange as it sounds, please allow me to earn whatever else money I could use--I will still open up commissions and hopefully earn enough to make a trip to California for the Korra Artshow thats well into March (so I have a good amount of time, I just have to handle the work).
If it means anything at all, take all my thanks. Keep being the amazing people that you are; this includes those who shared their hard earned money with me as well as those who shared their words of support. I will brag about you guys to everyone I know lol, your support means so much, you have no idea. It just makes me want to work harder and do better and be better. The only wa
Live the dream, don't talk about it!Doug TenNapel, independent comics creator, is an inspiration to me in many ways. He has a fun, accessible art style that is dramatic and fresh. His story telling is always askew in the best of ways. I don't think I've read one of his graphic novels without having some smiles and a surprise or two along the way. On top of that, he is outspoken about almost everything in his life. (I think of him as the Rush Limbaugh of comics- oh man, that sounds really bad, but early Rush, not present day Rush, if that helps.) I agree with most things he states on Facebook. BUT- the thing I am most inspired about him is his drive (in the old days we would call that "work ethic"). The guy does NOT give up. Because of that, he single-handedly will put out a new graphic novel a year. While creating a webcomic. While pitching new TV show development ideas in Hollywood. While running a half marathon. While working freelance jobs.Live the dream, don't talk about it!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Captain America: The First Avenger Project Part 1Hey guys! As what I've mentioned in my previous journal entry, I've changed my course and will be pursuing my dream to create props, prop replicas, and various costumes.Captain America: The First Avenger Project Part 13 years ago in Personal More Like This
The biggest project I'm currently working on would be creating a life size display of Captain America's suit as seen in the 2011 film. Trying to get as close as I can to screen accuracy for this one. No room for cutting corners.
I won't be cosplaying Cap though.
Photo is from the Profiles in History auction
I fell in love with the design the moment I laid my eyes on it. I've come to appreciate the Captain America TFA costume on a whole new different level now that I've studied it very meticulously. I adore military clothing and fashion and upon closer inspection, almost all of the parts of the costume are in fact genuine army articles cobbled together in a different way to form Cap's uniform! I learned so much in watching the featurette on Blu-Ray. Amazing and very thoughtful design!
First up, here are photos of my
Selkie: The Story. (no spoilers)Well I keep finding myself explaining various plot points or origins every time I post a new selkie picture and corresponding vague blurb, so I thought it would be a good idea to have a central place where you can read up on the story, if you like. The idea is that I'll update the story here when I upload a new illustration, and fill in major plot points which aren't getting covered in the picture, so check back if you're interested.Selkie: The Story. (no spoilers)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
BEFORE I START, I will answer once and for all this question: "Is this from Ondine/Secret of Roan Inish?" Not really, this story is as similar to either of those as they are to each other: they are all from the same mythology, but this series is about characters who do not exist in another selkie retelling. Here is some reading on basic selkie mythology: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selkie

2013 Racing Miku physics videoI know you wana see the shiny vid first so come back up when you're done! xP Ok so I rebuilt half the hair rig. Added more bones to it and tuned it some. What was happening was about midway down it seemed her hair was a little too ridged and not bendy enough. So I added more bones to let that happen. This is basically Misaki hair on crack. More bones and technically challenging physics all to keep her hair separated when it flys around but keep it some what grouped up. Before I re-built the original rig her hair was also flying around super wildly. May have looked cool for some serious head banging rock video but probably not what most of you have in mind.2013 Racing Miku physics video1 year ago in Personal More Like This
2nd Major thing was she had to have a arm operation/surgery. I noticed her elbows were too low on her arm and the only correct way to fix it was go all the way back to maya and fix it at the source. Then bring her arms back in to max then export from max in pmx then re-rig them. It ate up a few hours trust me but now I'm happy

7 Tips To Instantly Become A Better ArtistPractice, practice, practice. Gah.7 Tips To Instantly Become A Better Artist2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Attend life drawing classes over the summer. Blegh.
Take a sketchbook with you everywhere you go, and fill up ten of those bad boys at the coffee shop. Pfft.
Let's be honest here. We all want to become better artists, like, right frickin' now. We don't even want to have to suffer through hour-long tutorials of some pompous snooty hack bloviating over the intricate methods of drawing eyes on YouTube. We want progress, we want improvement, and we want it on our desk in ten minutes ago!
Fine, fine, I hear ya'. While these aren't going to make an instant Leonardo da Vinci out of you, these might get you up to...ehh...Basquiat caliber. Sure, I've made tutorials, but those are more about setting up Photoshop for the sake of coloring an image, and not so much building yourself artistically. Those are more technical lessons.

Captain was quite often standing on a cliff watching the wake of the wind and life of myths.
The captain had heard many stories about the various ghosts, cults ... and he was himself a myth because he was a participant while watching down on the coast and was their reporter if there is any trouble.
Down, the stories are born.
One day the wind threatened to take it, delete all the stories.
Myths were very scared... and captain with them who get report from nature.

How to win at deviantART: The categories gameThe categories game refers to the switching or misplacement of deviations into less competitive or algorithm preferred submission categories in order to gain a ranking advantage in dA's popularity algorithm, generally as a means of appearing more frequently on front page and subsequently gaining greater exposure.How to win at deviantART: The categories game3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The categories game arises from the inherent category biases under dA's "fair exposure" policy. The goal of the policy is to "maximize the display of the most popular deviations in a variety of topics with Fair Exposure, the community is exposed to a varied cross-section of deviantART. " What this boils down to is that certain categories have inherent ranking advantages and others inherent ranking disadvantages on front page. For more information on dA's fair exposure policy and how it leads to the categories game, consult my last journal on "How to win at deviantART: Exposed: http://roseonthegrey.deviantart.com/journal/How-to-win-at-deviantART-Exposed-289765235"
