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
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 Poland2 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
Setup to share.A typical setup would look something like this...Setup to share.2 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

PE: Procrastination and Creativity Procrastination and CreativityPE: Procrastination and Creativity1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
"You can't just turn on creativity like a faucet. You have to be in the right mood.
What mood is that?
You are well-aware of the importance of this project, in fact you can't wait to get to it! Too bad you promised your friends to go for a drink, and then there's that movie. Also, your productivity is at its strongest at Midnight, first Tuesday after the Full Moon, starting earlier would be a waste of time. Make sure you are well-rested! After all, is there a better way to prepare yourself for a productive tomorrow than an enjoyable today?
Your diagnosis: Procrastination positive.
"Someday is not a day of the week."

anxietyFirst of all.. I didn't expect to gain so much appreciation over this piece.anxiety2 years ago in Personal More Like This
From all over people have expressed how they feel about it. People have gone into large detail on what they like about this.
I want to talk about anxiety in general and how the image came about.
3 years ago I was hit hard by the disorder. It was so bad I got suicidal at points. Not the attention starving kind. Seriously contemplating it. Life was hell.
To someone who hasn't experienced it. I'll try and describe it from my own experience and point of view.
At any random point in the day I can get these attacks. During these attacks I'm overwhelmed with the feeling of imminent death. No rational thinking can erase the thought or feeling. Imagine having a gun held to your head. And you know it's going to go off. You just don't know when. That's what happens when I experience an attack.
I get these daily.
I hide it well from people around me. By just walking away. Or keeping to myself a lot.
How did this affect my

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 cosplay2 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

I’m certain there are people who dislike me. Some I come to know through whisperings because I have eyes everyyyyywheeeeere.
However, I don’t feel the need to acknowledge them or do anything about it unless they are causing any real harm, especially to people I care about.
There is a popular quote that I like referencing for this topic, which gets the message across in a charming way:
“You can be a juicy, ripe peach and there’s still going to be someone who doesn’t like peaches, so you can either submit to someone’s criticism of you, or you can get on with the business of being your own amazing self who attracts other like-minded people that appreciat
