I've become a big fan of appliqués in the past 5 years.
In this tutorial I want to show you what you can accomplish with this simple sewing technique.
Don't be surprised if I go through the steps quickly. In the lower tutorials everything has been described.

Okay, i hope that a lot artists participate in this contest to kick off 2013 on FGE in a really cool way for a really cool oldschool fighting game series, so i thought..okay..if over 20 artists participate, it better has 3 winners instead of only one. this means, instead of "only" a 12 Month Premium Account here on dA for the number 1 winner, gold and silver are getting something too!
2nd Prize 3 Month dA Premium Subscription
3rd Prize 1 Month dA Premium Subscription
Good luck and much fun to you in this contest and hell..show some love for Earthquake, TamTam and Wan Fu!!
The long running but almost dead weapon based fighting game series by SNK featuring a crazy cast of over 50 characters like Haohmaru, Amakusa, Charlotte, Galford and many many more.
This contest is of course meant as a challenge for all artists, but also to tribute this great series of fighting games and change the fact that almost no related art is c

Jeff gasps and runs out of sight.

Tekken 2 Art TributeTekken 2 Art Tribute3 years ago in Personal More Like This
wow, 81 claims already and 27 entries are already submitted (26.01.2013)
The Tekken I Art Tribute is done, published, Harada himself saw and liked it and since it was published last weekend here http://fanart.game-art-hq.com/9860/the-tekken-art-tribute-chapter-1-tekken-the-iron-fist-tournament around 3000 visitors saw it.
Tekken I however is just the first chapter of one of the most successful fighting game series ever and so its just natural that this Project continues with Tekken 2.
I aim for an April 2013 release on Game Art HQ.com
Those of you who know already today that they want to participate in Game-Art-HQ`s / FGE`s Tekken 2 Art Tribute can claim their spots already though.
3 Artists per character costume /design are allowed.
Every Artist can claim up to 3 Spots
You can claim but that wont mean i will accept your claims, i myself am no art critic but the visitors and viewers ar
Review: Alto Saotome uniform from MicCostumesHey, guys! Sorry I still haven't been able to update about Tux Team's recent cosplay adventures! As some of you might know, I really like to take my time to write those out. February turned out to be way busier than I expected! But hey, at least my gallery is getting updated a lot more this year!Review: Alto Saotome uniform from MicCostumes3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Nowadays I like to make little blog posts and share snapshots on my Tumblr behindinfinity.tumblr.com If you like, you could follow me there too.
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!

Don't Fuck With My Gay Fans... EVER!Everyone across the U.S. and all over the world knows that Jane the Killer is a lesbian with a lover named Mary, and not only think it's awesome that I made an LGBT Pasta Monster, but the JaneXMary pairing is also adorable. ^^Don't Fuck With My Gay Fans... EVER!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
But for some of those homophobic pieces of crap out there that criticize and infuriate my gay fans because they are either gay or lesbian and want to find every excuse to make fun of not only Jane Richardson because of her sexual orientation, but attacking fans of mine who happen to be gay and lesbian, THAT'S WHERE I DRAW THE LINE!
During the early 1990s, homophobes and right-winged religious groups made the LGBT community a target of hate and ridicule, but the 2000s, nobody gives a shit! Gays and lesbians are normal people just like you and I, they are successful in their field of work, they make a living like you and I, they have emotions, they have heart, and they have a right to like any creepypasta character they damn well please, INCLUDING JANE THE KILLER!
GA-HQ Challenge #2: Villains!Our first Video Game Art Challenge started in October and was all about Nintendo.GA-HQ Challenge #2: Villains!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
It resulted in illustrations of both known characters like Rosalina but also pretty unknown ones inlcuding even Golden Sun and the Wonderful 101.
Our new one is all about villains in video games! Can you illustrate those evil guys like Ganondorf, Vaas Montenegro, Kefka Palazzo, Sephiroth, Handsome Jack, Wario etc?
You can either choose one of these characters OR if you want a real challenge let me give you a choice between only three villains. I am mostly choosing those which are not so easy to illustrate of course.
Counting all ALL villains, antagonists and bosses in video games, this means that stage bosses can be claimed as well as evil fighting game characters like M.Bison or Shao Kahn or the big antagonists or villains of a game like those mentioned above.
Each character can be chosen by only one artist. Exceptions are different forms or designs. Like Ganon the boar like boss from the
Cats and Cacti Craft Feature What do cats and cacti have to do with each other? Absolutely nothing, until last week. Months ago I found a tiny cactus in my garden (tinier than my pinky finger's nail), I planted it in a small pot and took care of it. It was perfectly fine and healthy, until one of my cats, Lili, decided that she hated it and it needed to die. From that moment, no matter where I put the little cactus, she would find it and drop it, depot it and scarce the soil until the roots were naked. I know it's the cactus, because she's never done that with any other plants, pots or objects.Cats and Cacti Craft Feature11 months ago in Art Features More Like This
With that random story in mind, and in the memory of my little cactus, here's a feature of crafted cats and cacti. Spot the cactus cake! Also, I really want a cactus pin cushion now what a great idea!

Cosplay Photoshoot EtiquetteMy good friend hikaraseru has written a very good guide on how a standard cosplay photoshoot should be conducted in a conducive manner. I got her permission to post the entire article up, so hope you guys like what she is presenting to us.Cosplay Photoshoot Etiquette3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Want to plan a cosplay shoot, but somehow things just don't turn out right? Maybe the photos were not how you visualised them, or that the photographer seemed to be extra grumpy, or you just don't know what's going on? Read on for how to get the best out of your cosplay shoot:
The 4 Ps:
Having a plan is essential and should take up the most time overall in your shoot. Speak to the photographers closely, because they will be the ones producing the photos that will be the end result; make sure they are aware of the concept and background of the series you're shooting. Some photographers will want to do their own research prior to the shoot (reading the manga/watching the anime/looking up reference photos) - so make sur
