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

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 writing3 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

Alloweth me to become quite sappy, dear deviants and beloved watchers, for I have to admit something I've been feeling about y'all. I escaped dA to be on Tumblr and I'll tell you - it's fun, it's addicting, it's just awesometastic - but I could not help but keep on checking back here. And you know when they say stuff like "They are not actual friends," or "Once ya leave, they'll leave too and go on to check out other things like you were never there"?
I believed that, I accepted it, it sounds more than realistic and I've seen a grand many cases in which an artist leaves this site/any site and everyone kinda vanishes on 'em. Makes sense.
But dudes. I come back on after a whole month and eight days to throw very simple sketches and whatever from Tumblr at you guys and then the biggest surprise hit me that you all are still there. Although I've been gone for such a while and have be

- DERPY. DERPY DERPY DERPY. HER NAME IS CANON NOW, BITCHES. AND SHE HAS A DERPY VOICE. GLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE :iconsohappyplz:
- I like that a ton of Applejack's relatives from the first episode are at her celebration, but no Braeburn? I guess he couldn't get there in time. Which raises the question of how far apart these Equestria cities are.
- Ponies use outhouses? ......................................................................................................why.
- Oh ho ho, I see what you did there, writers. There was a character in the fandom frequently referred to as Cherry Jubilee, but that name was borked by Hasbro when they called her toy Cherry Berry. How does the writing staff respond? Give a new character the name Cherry Jubilee.

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 Syndrome9 months ago in Personal More Like This

StoryFor Enrollment 3+Story1 year ago in Personal More Like This
THIS IS THE STORY YOU SHOULD USE IN YOUR CHARACTER'S HISTORY.
The last story we're putting out; all future enrollments will presumably use the same story unless otherwise specified at the time of enrollment. Yeah, we've learned our lesson about making enrollment jokes (chaotic, though hilarious), and now we'll stick with something more stable. If you got to enjoy being tricked in enrollments 1 and 2, you should feel lucky~~
It is an ordinary day. A very nice ordinary day. Rifling through your mail, you see the usual. Bills, ads, more bills, more ads... Finally, reaching the last leaflet, a splash of colour invites your eyes to look closer. It seems to be an advertisement for real estate in a town far away.

Also an optional thing but highly recommended- make a forum account! The forum is a great place to roleplay (and it's very easy to keep track of roleplays on there) so I highly recommend you make an account. Remember to note or let one of the admins know when you do so we can accept your registration.

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

First Event: Team Design
Each team has had a colour chosen for them by their Student Council Leaders. This is your colour for the remainder of camp, so wear it loud and wear it proud! Each team needs a logo however, something that when the big competitions come up that they can wave proudly on their flags and display on their camp issued shirts!

Step 2: Post the first line(s) from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song. (I took out any instrumental songs, natch, as well as any song where the title is uttered in the first line, so it's not entirely the first 20 songs that came up.)
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from. Those guessing the songs should post in the comments or shoot me an e-mail.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly and post the title in bold after the stricken song when it is guessed.
Step 5: (for those guessing the songs) If you look up the lyrics on Google or any other search engine, that's called cheating, so don't do it!

I've had people from time to time ask me how I pixel, and I've never really been sure how to explain. It hasn't been until the past few years that i've really thought too much about what I was doing beyond experimenting and learning new things. I think I've rounded out some basic guidelines I usually follow and a friend wanted some advice so I decided to attempt some sort of explanation
Below are some step by step images and commentary. Please note that there is no one right way to create a piece of art. This Step by Step is meant only to impart some understanding of how I do things . In Pixel art alone there are many many 'styles'. I encourage anyone reading to look up more than one tutorial and seek critique if trying to learn their own pixel style.
