There already are many useful tutorials about basic make-up and posing, on dA and over the net, so I won't repeat what has already been said in them. I recommend reading them before reading my notes. Links below:

Tutorial: Cosplay Boy Make-up ISo, this is the first part of the "Cosplay boy make-up" tutorial. It has way too much text and pictures to put it into just one journal, so I will divide it.Tutorial: Cosplay Boy Make-up I3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As always~ English is not my native language so you might come across mistakes. My apologies! If anything is unclear feel free to ask me in the comments.
I'm just showing you what works for me and what's my personal liking. I'm focusing on eye make-up and additional tips. If you think this way of doing a boys cosplay make-up is is using way too much make-up that's totally fine. Everyone has his/her own preferences and this tutorial is just a hint who it can be done.
The shape of eyes differ a lot from one to another, so if you want to try it the way I do my make-up you might have to adjust it to your own eyes. Maybe you have already run into this problem before while seeing a well done eye make-up in a tutorial or worn by an asian cosplayer. Furthermore be aware of the fact that the shape of your eyebrows, wearing c

WingsHumans have used wings and feathers as personal ornamentation for the entirety of our history. In fact, there's evidence that our evolutionary cousins did so as well. It's suggested that this kind of ornamentation may even extend to a common ancestor of both humans and Neanderthals.Wings2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
What has led to our fixation with feathered ornaments is something we'll never know for sure. Do they represent a freedom we terrestrial beings long for when we see our avian friends? Does it come from spiritual or religious reverence? Or is it just because they are so pretty?
Whatever drives it today will differ between individuals, but there is no shortage of it in the artistic community. Here are some of the wonderful wing-containing crafts found in the Artisan Craft galleries.
More Than What's For DinnerOf all the wonderful aspects of culinary art, the one that gets the least love is often savoury meals. So often we see them written off as happy snaps of what's for dinner, but they are so much more than that.More Than What's For Dinner2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I'm not sure what it is about the savoury that gets shunned so quickly. A dish can be incredibly complex and highly skilled, but it won't get oohed and ahhed at as much as a quick batch of cookies or cupcakes. Maybe we're all dessert lovers at heart? Or maybe we see main meals as more common place? Either way, when we dismiss it we're all missing out on a world of skill and creativity.
A lot of the food presented takes many years of honing the skills needed to achieve it. From basic kitchen skills and knife handling, to learning how to cook the ingredients themselves, to then being able to experiment and modify dishes. The food is plated, styled and set up ready to be photographed. Everything from the dish it's served on to the colour of a placemat or the positioning of cutlery i

International Tiger Day + FeatureYesterday was International Tiger Day: an annual day of both celebration of the beauty of, and awareness of the plight of, tigers. Tiger populations around the globe have plummeted due to hunting, habitat loss and climate shifts. 100 years ago there were more than 100,000 tigers left in the wild. Today their numbers sit at a meagre 3,200. Three subspecies of tiger have already gone extinct. The remaining 6 subspecies are either endangered or critically endangered. In a decade, they may all be completely extinct from the wild. They've lost over 90% of their habitat, and the shifting climate is threatening to remove what little we've left them. If we don't mitigate the impacts of climate change now, the Sundarbans (their largest remaining stronghold) will be under water in 50 years. It's not a problem for our granchildren: many of us will live to see this.International Tiger Day + Feature2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

just talk,I want to discuss a thing, it is about the price..just talk,3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I believe that most of friends here almost have had met the same situation,
clients need you to provide the work price. I am not sure is it suit to talk
about this topic here or not, but I really want to talk.
Remember long time ago, when I graduated from university, a game company
asked me the freelance price to draw a poster. I gave them lower price than
the market. Of course, I got this freelance work. After I finished this project,
I was told off by my friend who work freelance and famous in the art territory,
seems to I destroyed the average price.
That was my thought:
[well, I just graduated from school and not famous at all, I can't ask for more
higher price.] Actually THAT IS TOTALLY WRONG.
Why I said that because recently I received a freelance chance to draw the
novel cover in my country, (A big publish company)They gave me the price
same as 10 years ago that I graduated from school, very low payment.

Movie MadnessThe Incredibles 2Movie Madness2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yes, the Incredibles is getting a sequel. Finally. Hip-hip hooray? I honestly am not all that excited about this. I was never part of the group of people bemoaning the fact this movie never got a sequel while movies like Cars and Toy Story did. I honestly never really felt like the Incredibles was sequel worthy to begin with actually... it’s such a self contained movie I don’t see why you’d need to expand upon it.
Speaking of Cars...
Oh no! Cars is ALSO getting another sequel! The horror the horror!
Honestly I’m a little tired of the Cars hate from so-called “Pixar” fans. Fuck you guys. If you don’t like the movie, don’t friggin’ watch it. It’s not really meant for you. There’s this strange concept called “being able to do two things at once” guys... companies and movie studios and artist, etc are all allowed to do more than one thing at a time. M

Why Cynical Improvement Is Bad For YouSince we're on the subject of taboos, I feel it necessary to talk about this one. This one pisses me off and it's very much a cornerstone to a bigger issue with our artistic community: The idea and assumption that as an artist you MUST improve at all times. 24/7. No exceptions. Every work you produce must be 10x better than your last. You must constantly strive for perfection. To ignore this "truth" is to commit the terrible sin of rejecting the very concept of improvement, and you will never break out of your "comfort zone."Why Cynical Improvement Is Bad For You2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm here to tell you that this is hogwash.
You should strive to improve. Never say that I don't encourage improvement. It's why you go to school, why you go to college, and why after college you continue to work on your art. You always want to be better. The problem is that far too many people have a strictly binary concept of what "better" is and on how to "improve."
First off, there is no pinnacle of perfection. There is no

It is common curtousy to not question someone you don't really know. Right?
You're walking down the street and see a gentleman in a wheelchair with cuts and scars all over.
Typical initial reaction: Oh, that person has been through something to make him that way. Try not to stare and continue about your business.
