Here it is...
You require the following ingredients:
1 1/3 cup joshinko (rice flour. Or you can get rice flour and grind it, but it must be ground just enough so it's as a flour. Any wheat grinder would work well. Just use the electronic one. I did it by hand and it hurts>>)
Making the rice dumplings:
Put rice flour in a bowl and add warm water. Knead the dough well (or just use a metal spoon if you want to). Make small round dumplings (the size of rubber balls). Place the dumplings in a (vegetable) steamer and steam them on high heat for 10 min. Cool the dumplings and skewer them in bamboo sticks. (3-4 dumplings each stick.)
Making the sweet sause:
Mix water, sugar, and soysauce in a pan and put it on medium heat. Mix the water and katakuriko starch in a cup an

The V For Vendetta SyndromeThe other night I had the privilege of watching the film V for Vendetta with some friends and it got to the part where Evey played by Natalie Portman was incarcerated, head shaven and tortured. She thought the government was doing this to her in order to get her to divulge V's identity, but in fact it was "V"( played by Hugo Weaving in a mask, hat and cape) doing it to her to make her fearless and strong and independent. When she discovers he has done this to her she resents him but as the story evolves she comes to understand what and why he had done that to her. She is then grateful. At the end of the movie one of my friends said.. Dan, that's you. That's your story.The V For Vendetta Syndrome1 month ago in Personal More Like This

My ten commandments for webcomic writingMaia and I actually have been working on B.I.B.L.E. whenever we've been able to. It has just been behind-the-scenes stuff. Right now we're in the process of rewriting the entire middle part of Rebound vol.2 since, frankly, the old version was awful and felt stilted and forced.My ten commandments for webcomic writing2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We're making it 1000 times better, and it just made me think, wow, if there's anything we've improved during these last four years of playing comic creators, it's our writing. We had to make a lot of mistakes to learn, but learned we have.
I just felt like writing down some of the things I've learned the hard way or swear by in general. Maybe some of you comic writers out there will find it useful too.
I bring yoouu, my personal ten commandments for comic writing:
1. Make the biggest possible gap between what you write and what you draw
Stories change as you write them and there's only a slim chance that they'll turn out exactly as you imagined them

I. Ain't. Scared. Of. YOU.
- My friends know I wouldn't EVER say anything to hurt them and they'd know if it wasn't me they're talking to.
- My dA points don't mean that much to me, so go help yourself if you want. That don't bother me.
- If you're tryin to get me thrown off dA, then good luck. I have a number of different computers I can make new accounts on.
- And finally, take a long, hard look at yourself. Know what I see? I see a big loser with no life who has to make others small to feel special.

Personal reasonsOver a year ago a person got very offended by an old comic of mine and wanted to explain to me why it was offensive. When they wrote to me I had long since understood that and deleted it from my own galleries, but they had found it on Tumblr and felt it was important to talk about NOW. At first I didn't respond because a lot of things were going on in my life and I needed to not stress about it, but then they started shouting on Tumblr about it and got more people shouting at me and I finally gave in. I tried to explain to the person what my thoughts had been behind it at the time but that I no longer felt that way, but they kept going.Personal reasons2 months ago in Personal More Like This
At the same time a lot of people were writing me about minor things like if they should move to Denmark or what my opinion was about one thing or another, and I didn't respond to any of those either and some questioned me about it. All the while this person was getting all worked up and wouldn't just take my "I'm sorry but I can't do this right no

Two years ago, the world was used to be a colorful place, where you could feel cool wind touching your skin, the sweet smell of grass and the beautiful blue sky. The beauty of nature still existed until one day,
What's that sound? The earth started to shake, there was a large sound of a ROAR. What could have happened? The sky gradually turned to grey, the white cloud to black. The green grass was gone, it turned into solid land made of concrete. The color was gone, monochrome descended.

Ah, the Mary Sue litmus test.From what I've seen (here, at least), that's probably the most controversial OC-related test there is on the Net. LOLAh, the Mary Sue litmus test.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Find it here: http://springhole.net/writing/marysue.htm
I actually don't think it's too bad. If you don't take it 100% seriously and follow all the rules and such, you won't get freakishly high scores, nor will you feel offended (hopefully).
I use it as a guide, personally. I think it's a useful tool, in fact. c: Just my opinion though.
I was super bored today, so I tested Ryo and Izumi. I know you guys don't know much about them yet (I really need to rework what I've got before I continue the story), but still -- Izumi scored a -4 and Ryo scored a -1.
I've never received a negative score on that test! LOL
I mean, if you test my very first OC -- a Legend of Zelda FC -- you'll get something around a 70, and that's even after following the directions...
I know that the scores on that test are simply suggestions. But perhaps I've been trying to stray from the Sue path so m

I'm organising a drawing contest around the characters of my own book « The last wish ». To participate, you have to show a drawing, digital or traditional, in colors (Black&White drawings will be refused). You can make a chibi, a half-body, a portrait, the only rule is that it should be colored.
The theme is Lolly and sweets.

Lolly was originally a doll, but took life when a special stone was put at the back of her neck. She doesn't share all our senses, so she's not able to taste the flavour of anything, which explains why she can't possibly know the flavour

Challenge 1: Clean Media, Clean MindWelcome to the first 30 day challenge! This month’s challenge is:Challenge 1: Clean Media, Clean Mind2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Clean Media, Clean Mind
You’ve heard “you are what you eat” and it applies to more than just food. So the challenge is to clean up what sites you visit, videos you watch, and music you listen to. After the month is over, tell us via picture or journal how changing what you consume, has changed how you think, speak, and act. Things to cut out of your media diet: sex, drugs, drinking, swearing, occult, and violence.
These challenges will be harder for some than others, so I’ve included three levels of commitment.
Level 1: baby steps
Cut out media that is blatantly sinful. I’m talking porn, violent movies, songs that swear every other word, etc. If it’s too hard to hold off for 30 days, consider how that itself is a problem. Are you making media an idol? Talk to a trust friend about it or a fellow group member. Also consider listening to a positive radio station:
