Stolen art on conventions in PolandYesterday I came back from Otakon convention in Warsaw. As usual I had a small stand together with :icongoku-no-baka: with badges and small prints with our pictures. Sale was pretty ok but I spotted a few really depressing things.Stolen art on conventions in Poland3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all most of stands were just offering stuff with stolen pictures - not only official ones but also from DeviantArt, Pixiv(poor Japanese artist who post their pictures in high resolution), everything printed in low quality on badges, t-shirts, pillow covers etc The sellers were making really big money on it especially when they had low prices(for shitty quality prints), becouse people will buy cheap stuff anyway.
Second thing was a fact that me and Goku were only artists that were still trying to sell their art. It's not like we don't have talented manga-style artists in this country. There are really many of them - even here, on DA. Most of them used to go for conventions with their stands but ones with pictures downloaded from internet "killed" most

Full blog and details found here: http://dreamorchid78.deviantart.com/journal/Back-with-a-bang-and-CONTEST-303007033
The contest can be from line art to a painting (digital or traditional). You can enter up to three pictures. While you don't have to pick from the list (since they're just suggestions), the drawing must fit a fantasy scenario, person or creature. A hint will be to try to incorporate a scene along with a fantasy character. You can do either evil or good. Also this MUST be original design and artwork (we're avid art fans of fantasy and know a lot of work out there so don't plagiarizer someone). Also we will disqualify any thing that looks exactly like a dark elf from WOW, Lineage II, or any other game. I really would like to see originality in this and I

Setup to share.A typical setup would look something like this...Setup to share.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) A1-sized black matt paper, plus a black corrugated board as a common base for most of my shots. The Bras Basah outlet of ArtFriend is my best friend (no pun intended) when it comes to craft materials.
2) The transparent plastic tray that holds your nendoroid, it helps to produce great lighting effects!
3) The quintessential figma stand. That's how I get all of them to stand on their own. Most tedious aspect of the session, since it must be kept in the blind spot.
4, 5) Speedlights remotely triggered via my pop-up flash. Gel them, adjust their positions and output power till you achieve the desired effect. Heck, try out different gels too!
6) Another speedlight as key on a lightstand, and I usually deploy it with a 1/4 CTO for subtle warmth. Again, try out other corrections to achieve other effects!
7) In-package instructional leaflet as flags, so the background

ACTUAL DAKIMAKURA CTENO ON SALE THIS WEEKENDOKAY. Let's get some details out of the way!ACTUAL DAKIMAKURA CTENO ON SALE THIS WEEKEND3 years ago in Personal More Like This
- FIRST OFF, most importantly, is the price. Which is going to be $180, shipping included. There will be another $10 for international shipping. If you've been following the Daki saga on tumblr, you are expecting this! I KNOW that is expensive! But I cannot afford bulk pricing on these! This is NOT a casual buy! This is a cool collectible or an awesome/hilarious gift for your girlfriend or boyfriend! I'm honestly not EXPECTING people to afford it! Still, this is cheaper than most custom Dakis of this quality.
- They will be sold on my ebay store as a pre-order. After the purchase period is over, they will be shipped to you within 30 days! They will NOT ALWAYS be available on my store. This first run will only be available to purchase for ONE WEEK, then orders will close for a while so I can get them manufactured and shipped out to people. Orders will open up again later, but if you want these for Christmas presents or something,

On misunderstandings about cosplayThis is a topic I've been meaning to talk about for quite a while now. I finally got the motivation to when Sarah sorairo-days emailed me to share my thoughts on what cosplay means to me, and what I feel it really means to be a cosplayer despite all the misconceptions about the hobby. It's for this article on Random Nerds, in which Sarah shares her side of it as well.On misunderstandings about cosplay3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years, I've witnessed how cosplayers are constantly looked down upon, which makes people apprehensive towards it. It's such a shame because it's a wonderful and rewarding hobby which brings people together. And in general, I am firmly against making anyone feel bad about doing something they want to do.
I am aware that the concept of cosplay might be too much for some individuals, but our intention definitely isn't to get all up in everyone's faces and say everyone should cosplay or whatever. We just want to promote a

Greetings my friends,
I hope that you are all doing fantastically
for those who read my last journal, I am happy to say that the issue has been solved and I thank you all for giving me fantastic advice and comforting words.
So, as the title suggests I am going to go nuts tonight painting away on my 6 projects. One of which is going to be my year 12 final. It is quite a complex image and has quite a mythical theme to it. I am so excited to make a start on it, but somehow I don't think I'll get to it tonight, as I am pushing to finish 5 medium sized paintings for my very good friends :3
Wish me luck to finish them within the two weeks that I have off ;-;.
That's all I really had to say well...that and I am loving this Lady Grey tea
It's like Earl Grey, but only sweeter ;^;

That said, I called down to my local animal shelter this morning. They have a beautiful chocolate point Siamese up for adoption. Her name is Willow and she is only about a year old. She came in with a bite wound a few weeks back and is now doing amazingly. I made an appointment to go see her in a few hours. I can't wait!
I went to see her. At the moment she only weighs 4 pounds, thin-boned and skittish. Her little heart was beating so fast as I held her against my chest. They told me she is depressed and not eating like she should be. She is also shedding like crazy. ( They think her hair-loss and weight might be due to worms. ) And they had yet to worm her because of her surgeries, as they were waiting for her to heal. The vet will be checking her out tonight to get her wormed. I can take her home tomorrow, but I might wait a couple of days due to
The Lonely PathThe Lonely Path2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
By :icontechgnotic: techgnotic
I I always thought of Thoreau’s comment as simply a word game — clever but ultimately false at its core. A Valentines Day without a Valentine means being alone and alone means being unhappy. It’s taken many years to finally understand the truth in Thoreau’s words. We are never so alone as when in the company of loving family and friends, our Valentine companion held tight in our arms – but knowing we are lost, unfulfilled in our dreams and visions, and untrusting in our own inner counsel. Now I hope to one day seek companions
