Here it is...
You require the following ingredients:
1 1/3 cup joshinko (rice flour. Or you can get rice flour and grind it, but it must be ground just enough so it's as a flour. Any wheat grinder would work well. Just use the electronic one. I did it by hand and it hurts>>)

I'm organising a drawing contest around the characters of my own book « The last wish ». To participate, you have to show a drawing, digital or traditional, in colors (Black&White drawings will be refused). You can make a chibi, a half-body, a portrait, the only rule is that it should be colored.
The theme is Lolly and sweets.
(The texture of her dress is here : https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=612635238747323&set=a.448755061802009.110509.448712225139626&type=1&theater )
Lolly was originally a doll, but took life when a special stone was put at the back of her neck. She doesn't share all our senses, so she's not able to taste the flavour of anything, which explains why she can't possibly know the flavour

Step by Step : My Pixel BasicsStep by Step : My Pixel Basics2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I've had people from time to time ask me how I pixel, and I've never really been sure how to explain. It hasn't been until the past few years that i've really thought too much about what I was doing beyond experimenting and learning new things. I think I've rounded out some basic guidelines I usually follow and a friend wanted some advice so I decided to attempt some sort of explanation
Below are some step by step images and commentary. Please note that there is no one right way to create a piece of art. This Step by Step is meant only to impart some understanding of how I do things . In Pixel art alone there are many many 'styles'. I encourage anyone reading to look up more than one tutorial and seek critique if trying to learn their own pixel style.
Please excuse any spelling mistakes, and take note that I use Photoshop 7.0, but the same principals sh

I hate to have to tell you thisI made it through the latest cancer scare but there is a another problem I am dealing with that is getting increasingly worse. I was infected with MRSA a couple of years ago when I unknowingly came in contact with it at my home when a health care provider exposed me to the so called super bug. There is no cure and usually when it enters the blood stream it is only a matter of time before it is fatal. The fact that I now have an infection that won't go away makes me think I am closer than ever to my next big fight.I hate to have to tell you this2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If it is in fact my last big fight know this. Your love and kindness is something I cherish so much. I have had so much joy reading responses and comments about my artwork over these past few years and I have spent many sleepless nights working on the next picture to share with you.
When I was in the 7th grade my art teacher said "Darrell, someday you will be a famous artist!" There have been many times when I have felt I let her down. If some of you remember me for a while m

Comme certains le savent peut-être, ma page facebook vient de passer les 1 000 fans. Pour fêter ça dignement, une loterie a été organisé sur cette dernière, et je tenais aussi à faire quelque chose sur Deviantart pour l'occasion. Cette fois, pas de loterie mais un concours de dessin ! Je crois qu'il est de notoriété publique que je suis une grande fan de Détective Conan, et j'aimerais profiter de ce concours pour faire connaître un peu mieux ce manga et pourquoi pas donner l'envie à certains de le lire !

My BJD~~He arrived a while ago, I've just been dead >,>My BJD~~2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So here he is~
I did his make up myself, took me like 4 tried because I kept smudging it Dx but it needs to be redone because (thankfully you can't see in the pictures) there are quite a few patches where the face wasn't cleaned properly before I tried doing the makeup again.
The wig I made before I got him so it doesn't fit right and you can see the glue showing through, but I bought some new hair from him it's wine red
I made him a little Kigurumi, though the hood doesn't fit. I bought him some shoes from mimiwoo and (not in the picture) some lycra leggings from makie.me. I made him a little t shirt, and the jumper in the last picture which I'm quite proud of ;3; also he has a netted orange neon skirt that I put under the jumper and I found 2 cute backpacks from teddies I had that looked cute
Overall I'm so happy I finally got such a cute baby :iconcryforeverplz:
Now I need to get back to work!
Events and FaLLEN Ch.1 Printing *Updated*The FaLLEN Ch. 1 books look great!! This might be the nicest print job I've had for any of my books, especially for my comics. Some of the pages turned out lighter than what's on the site, but that was my fault-- I went in to do clean-up on the pages that needed it and the pages, for some reason, turned out lighter when I switched them to BMP (does anyone know why you can't darken an image with brightness/contrast after you've converted it to bmp, even if you convert it back??) Part of the reason Ch. 2 hasn't got anything up yet is because I've been trying to figure out a better method of scanning my work. But even then, they still look good, some of the lighter tone (like lipstick and such) don't show up. Unfortunate, but the pages still look good.Events and FaLLEN Ch.1 Printing *Updated*2 years ago in Personal More Like This

For those of you wondering how my wacky adventures with the in-laws in Ehime ended... they ended with puking. Lots of horrible puking, and then death heartburn from the medicine I got from the hospital after I was hooked up to an IV all morning. What was I sick with? I don't know, but winding mountain roads and a plane ride home left me weak and powerless and quivering in a ball of pain all night. Today was less death-like, but still kind of "mmm...mmm?...mmm...." whenever I was asked if I was hungry. So... not fun, no. I would go as far as to say I had a bad trip, even. But I'll spare you all the rest of what happened.
Good news is, I got a promotion on MangaMagazine.net! I went from being a regular member to a featured artist in less than a month because the staff there are awesome.

Holiday Card Project 2012Holiday Card Project 20122 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles, CA hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA

Journal Skin ContestHello Everyone,Journal Skin Contest2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since the poll I set up shows that a good amount of people would want to enter my contest I have decided to hold it.
The goal of this contest is to make a custom journal skin for my personal use. The skin MUST revolve around my mascot Demi. The skin does NOT have to be cute/kawaii/ect. It can be serious, fun, colorful, monotone, whatever you would like. Since I'm not "cute" all the time I don't expect the skin to be sickeningly cute. Not saying you cannot go cute, you certainly can, just letting you all know you do not HAVE to go that route. I am open to all emotions and ideas! That being said it is a journal skin so use that theme to your advantage. Other than that I want you to be open, free, and have fun with it. I like to see what people will come up with if I allow them free reign.
With school coming up I will let the contest run about 1 month. To give everyone a fair chance because some have school and others work. That being said, I will
Storyboarding In Los Angeles!?I am happy to announce some great news; I will be working as a storyboard artist on an animated series for the US starting next month! I have been hoping for this job for over a year and I was finally told they are going to give me an episode and see how I do. I'm ecstatic, but there is one teeny little catch... I have to go to LA next month until early May! WAAAH!! So I have to make sure my commissions and 14 additional comic pages are finished by the time I go, since I have no idea how hard the schedule is going to be and whether or not I will have any time to myself. So I am going to be insanely busy from now until March 20th trying to get everything together in time. I don't want to have to put FaLLEN on hold, but since I can't take all my supplies with me (the downside to working traditionally) I am just going to have to try to finish ahead of schedule.Storyboarding In Los Angeles!?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
