Speedpaint Tips: Getting Started!In the interest of helping people who are new to speedpainting get started, and also in the interest of getting tips and tricks out in the open that might be helpful to even those who have done it a while, I'm opening this Journal entry up to the group to post your speedpainting techniques to share with the group!Speedpaint Tips: Getting Started!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Guidelines for posting (I believe this will help keep the thread readable to those coming in):
1) Give your technique a title
2) Provide a description with as much detail as is necessary to allow someone to try the technique and obtain some success with it
3) If possible, provide a link to examples that use this technique, and indicate how the technique was used
4) Please only include one tip per post
5) You may ABSOLUTELY respond to other people's posts, ask questions, and extend the tips! As this isn't a forum, please make sure you respond to the right posts when asking a question, or the original author might not see it! Questions should ONLY go under existing tips though.
Rapunzel's Wig FAQ and an InterviewHey everyone!Rapunzel's Wig FAQ and an Interview2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a while since I last checked in. In fact, it's been so long that I just realised I never posted the cosplay interview I did here (and that was in January!). Japan Cinema invited me to chat to them for a while for their cosplay corner - if you're interested, you can read about it over here.
In other news, I have finally gotten around to doing a photoshoot for Rapunzel! Thank you so much to :iconstrawdoll: for being such an amazing photographer...you're so nice to me :'D And so, since I'm about to attack you all with photos, I figured it would be a great time to finally, finally post the FAQ I've been promising for her wig. Here we go!

Lots of LotS stickers still available. Only $5 for a sheet including shipping if you live in the us.
More updates tomorrow.
Hello everyone! I'm happy to announce that you can now order Land of the Sky Volume 1 from me. I will leave orders open until next friday.
How much is it?
Same price as lulu, $16.
Shipping for people in the US will be $4 for a total of $20, so it's the same as lulu pretty much. If you want delivery confirmation, add an extra $1
For international buyers, we'll have to talk because the price will depend on where you're located. Please note that international prices are always going to be more expensive. It's not my fault and you should not be asking me to pay some of the shipping costs just because you want a signature from me. I'm using this site to calcu

Cosplayers, don't be afraid to take photos!Look at these comparison pictures: http://i1051.photobucket.com/albums/s431/aaronoflanagan/lulz.jpgCosplayers, don't be afraid to take photos!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let us tell you our real names, it'll be much easier. The girl who cosplays Lelouch is Anna, the girl who cosplays Millenium Earl and Melisandre is Kate. Kate took the Lelouch photos of Anna and Anna made photos of Kate's cosplays below. No one of us is calling herself a photographer. We're just cosplayers who really love taking photos. We TOTALLY think that EVERY cosplayer can take some decent photos. You must not be a photographer for this task!
When we first started with cosplay (it was 2008), there was no photographer with a single-lens reflex camera around us. We knew a very few cosplayers and we only had a really small camera (everyone has this kind of a camera at home).
We've thought - hey, we're two people, let's just take photos of each other! We're not photographers, but we still want to try it out!
After some time both of us noticed that most of the cosplayer's photos are take

Maybe some of you know it.
But here in german Cosplay scene, and perhaps also for many other countries it's really a novelty.
It can be used for paper decoration, for gemstones, paint and much more.

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

Thought it might be time for a little update.
First of all I would like to apologize for not being able to reply on all your lovely comments and artworks right away. I'm writing my Masters thesis at the moment and spend a lot of time in the laboratory and I find it more and more difficult to keep up with all the messages I'm receiving. I'm afraid I may not be able to answer every comment in the future But I want you to know that your messages mean the world to me!! I love all your support and interest in my work. It's truly all of you who inspire me to do what I do and I deeply appreciate every single message. You guys are awesome!
I will of course always answer my notes and write comments to works made from my stock.
Because of my school it has also been difficult to find time to make new stocks the last couple of months, and when I finally had the time it was always bad weather!
But now spring is here and I finall

I love cosplay for quite some time, I think cosplay is also a kind of fanart in a more realistic from.
I always feel that cosplay deserve more attention and favorite in dA,
So here I'd like to feature some of my personal favorite Avatar cosplayers with their best cos photos.
I know there are lots of amazing Avatar cosplay out there, but I can't collect them all.
The cosplayers I featured here should have their own dA account and have at least 3 pieces photoshots of the chatarcter in their gallery. I love their works not only because they represent the appearance well, but also I saw the spirit of the characters.
More than welcome to check their homepage by click their icon/Avatar.
So here we go!!~
