Introduction to Casting.Introduction to CastingIntroduction to Casting.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Casting is a process in where a solution(usually mixed with a curing agent, or hardener) is poured into a desired mold and then left to set and become a solid, which gives you the desired structure. This process is thousands of years old, and comes in many different forms. Examples of casting are metal casting (or metalwork), glass casting, resin casting and many others. Literally anything you can pour into a mold which becomes solid is considered to be in the art form of 'Casting'. It's regarded as a diverse practice, so no one can really define a specific cast, it's usually up to the artist to use a preferred or specific cast to get the most desirable results.
So what do I need?
It depends on what you want to make exactly. There are so many different types of casting resins and solutions you can use to give you different desired effects. Today however, I am going to show you how to

Full Hollow (Vasto Lorde) Ichigo helmet tutorial!Yai!Full Hollow (Vasto Lorde) Ichigo helmet tutorial!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Good evening again.
Tonight I'm going to show you how I made my Full Hollow (Vasto Lorde) Ichigo's helmet (from Bleach).
Hopefully you will get some hints or tips.
This is not the only way to make a helmet/mask. I'm just going to show you how I figured everything out.
This was also my first time ever making something like this, so it's now perfect or anything!
Thanks for reading and let's get started! ^^
This is how the whole thing SHOULD look like. A mask and utterly ripped character with cool muscles (prolly have to hit the gym still at least 5 years to even achieve something like that).
Well, so what do we need?
-Plaster of Paris (bandage type, whole box costs around 20 dollars)
-Fingers (your own)
-Some modeling clay mass, I used the first one I found. Brown modeling mass which does not need any heating. (10 dollars a package)
-Black and white spray paint (any typ
Bondage for Beginners For those of you in the know, the thought of bondage can often conjures images of whips, double locking handcuffs and beautiful black leather in all forms of gags, leashes, collars and more! For those who don’t know (*smile* ) prepare to be informed and titillated as we envelope you into a world of erotic play and sublime sensuality. Bondage is not just about ropes, gags and handcuffs, it’s about so much more. It’s about bringing playfulness back into sex. But first we will begin with a few beginner topics about bondage or BDSM.Bondage for Beginners2 years ago in Personal More Like This
BDSM represents bondage, discipline, sadism, and masochism; however, I personally like to think it stands for Beautiful Delicious Sexual Madness. If you’re looking for a sexual change—and a hell of a way to turn your lover on—then exploring the world of BDSM is definitely a road to consider.
While this may sound a bit daunting if you ha

Interview with KilljoyAtHeart1. Whenever I think about creating characters, I always think of this Ray Bradbury quote:Interview with KilljoyAtHeart3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Interviewer: I remember listening to a writer talk about her characters once. She said that she was the boss, and they were her puppets: they went exactly where she told them, did what she ordered them to do...
Ray Bradbury: You can't do that. That's bad writing. They must write you. They must control you. They plot me. I never control. I let them have their lives.
Do you agree or disagree, and why?
Firstly, I love Ray Bradbury; he was a wonderful writer. And secondly, I agree. I find that it's very hard for me to just come up with characters and "control" them throughout the story. Stories and plots take on lives of their own in my experience, and the characters along with them. I often find as I write that the character has flaws, dislikes, preferences, habits, and personality quirks that I never meant for them to have in the first place. They just...happen.

Cosplay: we've lost the meaning behind it.Most cosplayers on Facebook may have come across some drama that unfolded on a 'cosplay page', but for those who haven't I'll show you.Cosplay: we've lost the meaning behind it.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This picture was posted up, and has since been deleted off their page due to the massive backlash. I can't even begin to comprehend what made them post it up. And I can't tell if the picture is pointing at overweight people, westerners, or both. Either way it's sickening.
Time and time again I see this bullshit. Even searching up cosplays on google, you see images of cosplayers being ridiculed for a 'bad choice'. Yes, I've said many times that one should choose their costumes wisely, but that should NEVER limit someone. I think we all have to remember why we cosplay- why we're all part of this subculture.

The 'Free' Artist's Toolbox for Digital ArtistsThe 'Free' Artist's Toolbox for Digital Artists2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Welcome to projecteducate 's topic: The Free Digital Arts Toolbox!
Not all artists can or want to pay for expensive programs like Photoshop or PaintTool SAI, expensive hardware like Wacom Tablets, or premium stock for poses, brushes, patterns, backgrounds, etc. How is an artist wanting to work in digital media supposed to operate while keeping their finances under control? THAT is exactly what we will be discussing - and until 2014 when my own family bought me tools and programs I had wanted for a long time, I worked my digital media magic using mostly free programs, methods and resources.
Photoshop and PaintTool SAI are amazing - no doubt. But they are not the only programs available that can edit pho
