Excuses for art and What to Do About ThemNOTE: these solutions only work if after that excuse, you say "but I still want to do it"; Note, I'm not saying I'm any authority on art but this is what I tell myself to carry on.Excuses for art and What to Do About Them7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am too untalented to make prints / artbook / adopts / comic / etc.Actually, the best time to do something you're bad at is when you're bad at it! Everyone starts playing piano when they're young and suck shit, but by the time they are older, they can play beautifully! You don't want to be that 30 yr old who doesn't know how to but wants to play the piano because he was too scared to make gross music in the beginning. This is the BEST time to start making a comic (for example) because it will help you improve in that area that you will need to be better at! How can you be better at making comics in 5 years if you never tried to learn formatting, text, thumbnails, character development / whatever you need? You will be in the same place you are 5 years from now

Have you ever been inspired, and I mean truly?
I know a lot of times we forget that deep feeling that comes up when we watch see or hear something truly wonderful, the thing that touches our hearts in the most tender way.
For me it's whenever I hear the song, "Brothers" which I know a lot of people might have said before, but for me there's just no taking that magic away from it, no matter how many times you hear it or have heard people talk about it.
I think in that way a lot of the Anime we watch is not just because it's fun and inviting, or that it's unique and interesting. A lot of why we love Anime is for those subtle emotions that come along with it, that's a lot of what makes Fullmetal Alchemist stand out, all those tender moments that really strike a cord with us and inspire us to create.
It's not just that Series but in a lot of other ones in the genera, Dragon Ball Z is intimidating but will surprise you. The joy of fiction and imagination is it flows so

I've still got a lot of messages and emails to answer. (Especially yours, Rez!) Sorry to keep you all waiting! I really just find it difficult to write letters when I can't give my full attention. Loooots to do nowadays. I'm very thankful, but I do wish I also had more time to write journal entries.
I've got a little something to share right now, though!

So...You Want To Be A (cosplay) Photographer?Ladies and Gentlemen, due to an overwhelming response of "Yes" on one of my latest polls (I think it was something like 35-3 in favor), I'm going to write this journal about my experiences when it comes to photography, and, in all honesty, a majority of it will be aimed at cosplay photography given that that is what I have done the most of since I decided to get a bit more serious about photography. I also feel like it is very important to say that I'm not at all, in any way, saying that this is the "right" way of doing things. What I write about in this journal, and what I say are my own opinions, formed from 4 years and multiple conventions/outside shoots worth of experience. You all are more than welcome to agree or disagree with me, and I invite you to share your thoughts in the comments section, as well as ask me any questions you might have (PLEASE keep it respectful, folks).So...You Want To Be A (cosplay) Photographer?2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Tamagoland is the name of Daikon's blog ( some art NSFW ) and eBay store. This stuff is amazing, and when Daikon does venture into more muscular artwork it's usually spectacular. A batch of stuff was just released into the eBay store which I heartily recommend you bid on. I've posted about Daikon before, but I'll keep repeating it for those that don't know. The picture above comes from a batch of commissions that he mentions in the blog. Daikon's occasionally open for commissions through the eBay store.
Here are some of the items available for bid currently. You've only got 12 hours left at the time of this writing:

As I mentioned in a recent journal entry, I'll be posting daily updates in the month of August. There will be a combination of manga, artist features, and website features, but it all should be worth reading. I wanted to start with an old favorite of mine, and commissioned IDarkShadowI for fanart of a character from this series:
Natsuki Crisis「なつきクライシス」 is an older series, first published in 1991. It was created by Hirohisa Tsuruta「鶴田洋久」and features one of my favorite muscular manga girls of all time, Akira Kandori「神取あきら」. Natsuki Kisumi「貴澄なつき」i

Yes, it's summer my dear Thundercats. A time for fun and exciting trips and ACTION! I was thinking about doing a contest. However, i fear i must inform you that I've not quite sure how to run them. In light of this, I'm (again) looking for members (and big time T-cats fans) who are willing to assist me. You know, some admins to keep me from side-tracking. ;3
I need people who are interested in helping and I need to know if people are interested in participating in a friendly contest. I know some clubs are going crazy with their contests so if you guys are up for it- what the heck.
