MASTERPOST: Mericcup GIFs(original post date: Nov 2012)MASTERPOST: Mericcup GIFs2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am posting some Merida/Hiccup GIFs that I made for these:
Since stamps are quite tiny and you can't really use them outside deviantArt, I've decided to upload the original GIFs. I didn't want to submit each one as a deviation so I've collected them into one masterpost instead.
Feel free to use, provided that:
1) you do not hotlink the images (right-click and save as, please; I don't want to have to re-upload these)
2) you do not alter them (ask permission first if you want to make any changes)
3) you do not claim them as your own
4) you credit back to the original makers.
In addition, if there is anyone who has made or come across other Mericcup-related GIFs, comment with a link to the image so that I may add them below. This entry serves as our group index.
This masterpost will be frequently updated.
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!3 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
Book 3 Info! From Inside the book of Spirits"Harmonic convergence was a major event where this crazy spirit energy, we saw it wash over the entire globe and pass through everything and every person, so, it remains to be seen what effects that had on people and the world. There was quite a bit of destruction from the crazy battle between giant spirit Korra and Unavaatu, and Unavaatu did this thing where he caused all these spirit vines to grow, so now there’s this thing where we have this giant metropolis but there’s these crazy jungle vines growing over huge sections of it where these spirit wilds like from Wan’s time have kind of cropped up throughout the city. And now there’s going to be spirits hanging out in those, and so a lot has changed, and it’s only a few weeks later…” - Bryan KonietzkoBook 3 Info!

April 1/50 for 150 Raffle!BULLETIN:April 1/50 for 150 Raffle!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
As a way to kick off April's coloring contest, we are once again hosting the 1/50 for 150 Raffle! All you have to do is +Fav this journal, which puts you in a random drawing to win an easy 150 dA points! Pretty easy, huh? So easy and effortless, you'll probably wake up in a few days having completely forgotten, and wondering just who this color-me-club fellow is that's throwing random dA points at you.
There will be a winner added for each extra 50 +Fav's this journal receives. So you have, at minimum, a one in fifty shot at winning! However, the winner cap will be at 500 +Fav's, so get yourself in quickly to be in the first 500 before the cap is reached!
Of course, this whole raffle thing is just a big ol' ruse to stir up attention to an even bigger event. Yep, already mentioned it earlier, but colorists unite(!) we're also kicking off our next coloring contest!

Goodbye Star Wars Expanded Universe......Well there goes the Expanded Universe. Its been a privilege to contribute to the universe but now some of my SW works are just part of a glorified "fan fiction". I'm still looking forward to contribute to the new canon but part of the Star Wars fan in me died with the official announcement. I just hope that some parts of the EU will make it through to the new canon. As far as future Star Wars works are concerned I can no longer draw on my knowledge of the EU cause the slate has been wiped clean and everything will be new territory from here on out. Whether this is good or bad I really can't decide at this point. I'll just have to wait and see how things pan out.Goodbye Star Wars Expanded Universe......9 months ago in Personal More Like This

From now on commissions are closed, I will finish artworks for people who are on the list but still waiting or they paid for their commissions. I will reopen them in future when I find more suitable way for funds transfer and when I find more time because my school starts soon; also prices will probably be changed and quality of artwork will be better.
For those of you who have commissioned me: thank you a lot, I had great time paining your characters and making your ideas real tho sometimes you waited a little longer than you should ^^

Vitreous EnamelArtisan Crafts WeekVitreous Enamel9 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Vitreous enamel is a material made by fusing powdered glass to another material (usually metal or ceramics - I'll be talking about metal) by firing. The powdered glass melts and flows into a smooth coating, which hardens as it cools. There are a lot of other materials out there that are calling themselves 'enamel' that are technically a resin or something else with very similar properties - traditionally, however, enamel is glass, and that's what I'll be talking about in this article!
Although this all sounds super cool and fancy (hopefully) you can actually find examples of products that have been enameled in an industrial setting all over the place! The older white boards at schools, for example, were often made of steel with a white enamel coating on them. In addition, cookware is often enameled - ever see those dark blue pots with the white speckles? Other commonly used items that have been enameled are bath tubs, dishwashers, and other appliances.

Reguarding The New DmC: We'll be okay.So... I've been downloading Devil May Cry OSTs And while listening to "I'll be your home" I realized something- About my Rants and Raves towards the new DmC:Reguarding The New DmC: We'll be okay.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's Nothing we can do. Nothing
But thats okay- Because they can't simply come in and take away the Dante, the emotions, the love, the hate, the frustration of being stuck on Vergils last battle and finally screaming "TAKE THAT YOU WHORE!!!!" at the screen at the end of the game!!!! No. They can't.. they can't take what they've already given us.
This new game is much like a cold: All we have to do is lay back, relax and it'll go away.
I can't wait for it to come out- perhaps if not many people enjoy it they may realize how many are outraged.
I complain not. Its a good thing I'm not a Devil...
Because I'm bawling. Crying. Sobbing. All and any derivitives for the tears inside me. To be a nerd and quote the song I'm sobbing to: "The tears inside me calm me down"
Thinking about that reminds me of DMC3's last few cutscenes...

Many, many months ago last July (that's how late this entry is) a cosplay event was held in the most beautiful location that the local cosplay community has ever seen. Fernbrook Gardens the wedding & events destination which you might recognize from our Kuroshitsuji http://behindinfinity.deviantart.com/gallery/29228688 and Harry Potter cosplay photoshoots http://behindinfinity.deviantart.com/gallery/31767781
It was around that time that the world was getting ready for the final Harry Potter movie, so my friends and I decided that perhaps it was about time to push through with our plans to cosplay Harry Potter characters. Parts of Fernbrook Gardens also looked like Hogwarts so we figured it would be appropriate.
Photos are from my friends, some from albums I was tagged in on Facebook, and some from my own camera.

Star Wars: Imperial Commando
The sequel to Star Wars: Republic Commando. I would like it if the story continued on during the Imperial Period where Boss, Scorch, Fixer, and the new guy(who replaced poor Sev) hunt down Jedi who escaped Order 66, as well as the people who help the Jedi and have no love for the Empire. I'd also like it if LucasArts would make the multiplayer a bit more entertaining than Republic Commando's multiplayer which felt very simple.
LEGO Star Wars IIII: The Clone Wars 2
A continuation of the first LEGO Clone Wars game, which would be based on seasons 3 and beyond. We'll probably get it eventually.
