Beware of Some Tutorials... This is just my opinion. I have to lead with that. Everyone is free to agree or disagree and disregard.Beware of Some Tutorials...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've had loads of people over the past few months ask me to create tutorials.
I never have. I'm not sure when I will, and I'll tell you why. Deviantart is filled to the brim with the most *awful* tutorials. And now that "Tutorials" have a priority category ( meaning they get to the front page every single time regardless of how many hits they get), some users have been creating tutorial after tutorial just to abuse that loop hole.
Thing is, I find a lot of these people who create the tutorials, have no business creating them in the first place o_o;. Some of them ( not all) aren't doing it to be helpful to the masses. Some of them are doing it to try to make one (to see if they can set it up, to see if they can make it interactive), or to see if they can use the exploit. Those people are not helping you.

The Points Giveaway Project: QuotesOkay, for those of you that know me really well, you know that I love quotes. For those of you who don't know me, now you know. Now, I find quotes to be extremely inspiring: the ability to pack so much wisdom, wit, or humor into one or two short sentences never fails to astound me. Don't believe me?

So, here's the deal. Being the selfish, spoiled, brat I am, I'm gonna tell you what I want.... I want quotes. Tons of them. I want so many quotes that it breaks my inbox. They can be funny, ironic, heartbreakingly sad, angsty, wise, something you find to be truthful, a particular phrase you like, a quote from a movie/tv show, a section of a book/fanfic/poem/other, a quote from a play, or perhaps parts of some lyrics from your favorite song. Any quote you can think of... Tell me. If I take an interest to it, I'll give you a point or two depending on how much I like
My favorite ART suppliesI get asked a lot what pens and pencils I use. So I thought I'd post an updated list of my favorites.

My number one question that others ask me is "What do you ink with?"
I use Kuretake brush pens. Here's a link to a sable hair brush pen that I love, it's the closest thing to a real brush I've used. It is pricey though. http://www.jetpens.com/Kuretake-No.-40-Fountain-Hair-Brush-Pen-Sable-Hair-Refill/pd/3958
The less expensive version is the synthetic hair, http://www.jetpens.com/Kuretake-No.-13-Fountain-Hair-Brush-Pen-Red-Body/pd/2661 this brush pen is similar to a Pentel brush pen. http://www.jetpens.com/Pentel-Pocket-Brush-Pen-for-Calligraphy/pd/1793
The cool thing about these Kuretake brush pens is the refill cartridges have nice ink in them that I use, but if you find you don't like the

2D + 3D CommissionsHello, you arrived at my Commisions page2D + 3D Commissions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you are interested in getting a CGI image created for you, please continue to the section you are interested in. There are three sections:
2D section covers all kind of colored, shaded images, preferably drawn with outlines.
3D works is about polygonal objects of all kinds, textured and with some post-processing for nice looks.
Vector images refer to things drawn with hard lines and occasional shading, such as blueprints and ink-like drawings.
I do all kinds of art and I'm opened to different styles (vector drawings of a Star Wars ship, 3D render of a Stargate vehicle, blueprint for a Dune tank and of course every kind of original universe objects and scenes) so don't be afraid to ask for anything that you can think of.
You can also check examples of my commisioned work and private gallery works on the bottom of this entry.
I am looking forward to working with you and seeing a happy finish

In the past week I have experienced two noteable 'seconds'. Firstly I was awarded my second DD for which I have given thanks already. Also I have passed my second anniversary of being here on Deviant Art. I am still enjoying my time very much with you amazing people. I know some people have moved on but there are always new people joining who I am happy to meet and welcome as I was welcomed so warmly two years ago. Two years eh? Doesn't time fly when you are enjoying yourself? It does for me. I hope I have become a better photographer and a better editor in my time here. I know I am better in many other ways.
In my profile there is a brief note about me. Well for the last few years I have been exploring the UK and taking pictures of my travels. I decided to get to know my own country after years of neglecting it. I have found many magical places and met many wonderful people along the way. I am so happy to share these experiences with you here. I always try
Legitimate chance at GLTAS's revivalWith Green Lantern and Young Justice now listed on Netflix, a door has sprung open for both us and the producers, to be able to legitimately bring back this series back with new episodes.Legitimate chance at GLTAS's revival1 year ago in Personal More Like This
In wake of their cancellations both shows gained an immense increase in fanbase which will probably catch the eyes of Netflix, which actually has the funds to be able to completely revive the series without having to ask for aids from Warner Bros.
To further help make Netflix gain notice on the fanbase and viewers for them to give it a consideration, please check out Green Lantern(and Young Justice) on their list.

I feel incredibly lucky that on my birthday, I can finally reveal a long-awaited dream come true with all of you.
McCall's Patterns reached out to me last year to see if I would like to design some patterns for them. (Still reeling over this sentence, btw.) I had a meeting and lovely tour of their offices, and then got to work. My ideas were overflowing, but I knew exactly which patterns I wanted to design first...
We're proud to present "Yaya Han's Ultimate Bodysuit Pattern" as the first finished collaboration between McCall's Patterns and me.
It's a pattern we are sorely missing in the cosplay world - I know from having to alter and draft my own bodysuit patterns for many years. This patterns will make it easy for cosplayers (and everyone else) to tailor a bodysuit that will fit them like a glove, and use it as a base for thousands of costume ide
Season EnderYellow~! Its been awhile since I made a write-up for my gallery (more than a year?).Season Ender2 years ago in Personal More Like This
2013 has been a very busy year for me because of work and freelance (mobile app development) --- causing me to hibernate in photography for more than seven (7) months.
Aside from work, my favourite lens (Tokina UWA) got himself some fungus and my EOS 1000D got injured (like hot-shoe problem and sensor dust) --- as a result, I end up rejecting every invitation because I don't have any gear to use on --- and it took me awhile to send it to a server centre because of tight schedule
On a brighter side, I think this incident is nice because I still have some awful backlogs to catch-up with from 2012.

Black Rock Shooter review! by ~mangagirl050Firstly, I have to express my EXTREME disgust in the hand-drawn animation. Everything, EVERYTHING was simplified or changed and it looks cheap. The animation isn't very good overall. The CG, though, was very nice and I definitely enjoyed watching it. (Although I do hope they explain how their little girl bodies can take being smashed, mashed, drilled, and crushed without so much as a scratch to show for it.)Black Rock Shooter review! by ~mangagirl0503 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before I delve into the plot of the story, I'd first like to express my opinions on the characters themselves, and their changes.
Mato was very charming in the OVA, in my opinion. She was cute, funny, and outgoing. In the anime, she is simply a generic anime girl. She has no personal charm or…personality.
Yomi is no longer a strong, independent girl. I mean, she obviously developed some dependence on Mato, but you know what I mean. She was quiet, but not…sniveling. In the anime she is now a frightened pushover. I miss her elegance. Speaking of, Dead Master…isn'

Well I'm back home in Massachusetts now after a long day of travel. Bruce and I got to meet with 2 people from CN, they were both really awesome and very nice, even the room we met in was chic and cool, definitely not the formal boardroom setting I was expecting.
Honestly I'm not sure if I did a good job presenting the series or not. I think they were intrigued by the action/comedy blend of the series, and liked the school setting as it's relatable to viewers. They definitely seemed interested in the fact that this series has more female fans than male fans, and that we've achieved this level of succ
Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)To many people in comics, I only arrived a few years ago with Joe the Barbarian. Then came Hellblazer (completed in 2008 before I began working on Joe), American Vampire: SOTF, and finally Punk Rock Jesus.

This isn't a plea to have everyone go back through my previous work--in fact, I'm glad that a lot of the books I've done over the years aren't on readers' radars. I'm proud of it all, but the books above are a nice, tight group of titles to be associated with. They're all in a similar brand, they're all recent, they all have good creators/publishers associated with them, and the artwork is mostly consistent. Go back further than that, and you'll see artwork that looks nothing like the stuff I'm doing these days. (Although Off Road still holds up to some de
