The monthly Bake Off! is designed to make you bake or cook something! You have a whole month to plan what you'd like to do and there are various ways in which you can win some prizes.
This month the theme is 'Bread.' You can interpret this how you wish! I certainly didn't bake these rolls from scratch but used a packet mix (cheating but oh so tasty!) and got a little creative with how I arranged them. It would be good to include the recipe in your commets, or a link to the recipe if you took inspiration from elsewhere. It will help with regards to the prizing criteria listed below too...
- Entries must follow the rules of Still Life Photography - no body parts!
- One entry per person please!
- Entries must be your own work.

Not everyone's Teiko uniforms are ready just yet, but we wanted to get a feel of things for the proper shoot so we did this for practice. It gave us a chance to try out our wigs and makeup and junk to see what we need to improve on for our actual cosplays.
The following portraits are the full-sized versions of what was squeezed into the above banner thing

Homestuck Shimeji Master ListI hope this is okay to put here. I thought it would be relevant to our group ^_^Homestuck Shimeji Master List2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Most of these I gathered on my own. Another great list is here: http://nepeta.mozai.com/shimeji/ All the shimeji on that list are also listed here.
The first list set will all take you to the original source of the shimeji, NOT the direct download. Some of the download links are in the descriptions. The second list set is of direct downloads for shimeji with uncredited sources. If you know who they belong to, please let me know. ALWAYS credit your source when posting images of the shimeji!
If you know of a shimeji not on this list please let me know! I'm always trying to keep it updated and hunt for original sources. I know there's a lot more out there that I own or have seen but can't find the original links for so any help you have would be greatly appreciated!
Shimeji I'm on the hunt for again:

Why I left DA + currently hospitalized.Hi everyone! It's been awhile. This post is a little important so I have a feeling im going to be making it a little long... Also, I'm doing it from my phone. So, there may be weird typos.Why I left DA + currently hospitalized.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you don't wanna read the whole thing here's a basic summary:
I left DA because of Internet hate which brought down my confidence; I got a lot of hate the same day I found out my grandfather died which really made it worse, I planned on coming back the beginning of January but I was hospitalized because of a bowel obstruction and I am still currently in the hospital and plan to come back mid February. Also I feel like shit.
Long version: I guess I'll start... With why I left. It's a really complex reason and I really hope everyone will understand, but I think there might be some people who just won't. And by that I mean, I am aware I have a handfull of followers who might feel neutral about my art rather than full out liking it. Or maybe I'm just talking about the people who don't really like my ar

Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!Yeah so here is how it works! You need to figure out your sun sign, and your moon sign. There is a calculator similar to this one out there, but it doesn't take in account jade bloods or mutants. This also doesn't require rounding. Hussie has already stated that the only troll blood colors that exist are the ones we have seen in the comic + lime. I also had to take in account that the jade blood color is rare, but the odds of getting jade with the distribution unadjusted are extremely high, so I figured out a way to make it work so it makes sense. I also took in account that fuchsia blood is extremely rare, and so is being mutant. The distribution that I am working with is a pyramid. I'll explain the breakdown at the end.Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Today I was in the hospital visiting family. I got an email from my friend on my phone. Someone was harassing her for having done something wrong. She was in tears. She felt/feels horrible. Why? MMD.
Advice to my friends who want to use MMD: DON'T. And if you really want to use MMD, don't join the "community".
You get ADDICTED. You can't stop looking for models. You lose sleep for getting passwords. It's ridiculous. It's an obsession for bloody PIXELS.
This community... WHAT COMMUNITY?! This is a bloody CORRUPT "community" is what you mean! The god damn rules controlling EVERYTHING and don't think I'm taking sides--the users are just as bad.
The rules, they control EVERYTHING. You can't make ANYTHING romantic with Hetalia models. That's just stupid. If you don't want your precious little model being used for a certain picture, DON'T DISTRIBUTE IT. If you don't want people using a part you gave out to edit models

Vocaloid Song Theory-Kagerou DaysSorry for a poorly written theory. I'm just putting stuff that pops in my head.Vocaloid Song Theory-Kagerou Days3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Even though there's many PV's of this song, the latest one is closest to the original. By that I meant by art style wise. While they all have the same color scheme (Black, White, Red, and Blue) and the same stuff happening, this one seems the official PV.
I cried on this one. Yes the song is sad and the lyrics are twisted with a graphic PV.
Summary: Read the lyrics it tells the whole thing.
Things I notice: The truck that killed the girl (Eventually the guy) had the word JIN on the front bumper. Jin is the composer of the song so he's the one who accidentally killed the girl. In real world wise he purposely kills her off to make the plot.
-When the pole fell on the girl, you see Miku and Kaito screaming what they just saw.
-The black hair boy, who possibly caused all of this shenanigan, cried when the boy kills himself. Why didn't that black haired boy cried when h

A blush spread across your face as you looked over at Toby who was laughing. You pulled up your (f/c) hood and turned to leave when some one grabbed you. You gasped as their arms looped under yours. " Where are you going (Y/n)?" A male voice asked. You recognized it as Jeff's. "D-Dude lemme go!" You said while squirming.
"Geez dude. Calm down." You looked up to see BEN looking at you. Your eyes widened. "Jeff leave him alone." The three of you stopped and looked over to the voice. Liu sat tiredly staring at the three of you. Mentally thanking him for the distraction you got out of Jeff's grip and ran past BEN.
You got to your room closing the door. You sat on your bed for a bit. About an hour past and you fell asleep, until you felt something on your side. Your eyes shot open as you launched you self to the wall that your best was against.

I dont believe in mentors, not all mentors are qualified to teach, they can misguide you sometimes. If you have a mentor it can turn you into his clone, i had seen tons of great artists that their technique wasnt good but they were more unique and after having mentor, their style lose uniqueness. Because be honest, we copy what we like, and usually we ask for mentors of people that style will enjoy the most.
For example you go and learn to play guitar with Slash, you will master the guitar at rock, but you if you wanna learn country, Slash wont teach you that, your hands will have the skills but you will have to start country from zero, and country its your style.
Sooner or later the technique of the mentor will consume you. Because errors are the things that

This is the season i wanted to see compared with past two, cool characters, epic fights, not cheap endings for cool villians like past two seasons that feel rushed. Now the series aint focussed in just Korra save us, feels like old Aang saga, were everyone has a role to play.
When i was watching korra fighting in avatar state i just was on my edge of my seat. When i saw Tenzen figthing like a bad ass, was the first time i saw a master airbender in beast mode, there were tons of epic moments on each chapter.
The tatoo ceremony was epic, i just couldnt stop my manly tears coming out from my eyes. Watching Korra a character i didnt liked for the past two seasons too much annoying and overpowered, watching her in that state in the end of episode 13, for the fisrt time i cared about her. Its the first time i see her as a normal young girl.
Did anyone noticed Aang theme, when they create a tornado, that moment was epic. Im thinking getting this season in
