THE ZEKI MASQUERADE CHALLENGE
It is a great pleasure to announce Nostalgia’s second official contest: The Zeki Masquerade Challenge!
Masked at the Royal Masquerade Ball, the White Knight and his Princess are in another world doing things that are for the deviants to unveil...
Artists are required to choose one of the two given scenarios:
♘ Scenario #1:
The hall is dark, the lighting low; soft music colors the atmosphere in a dream-like fantasy; slow, enticing, romantic. Hidden beneath an elegant, mysterious mask, the princess’ eyes meet that of the knight. Hearts beat, sparks fly; what would this meeting lead to..?
♘ Scenario #2:
The Royal Masquerade Ball is as uncomfortable and disconcerting as the princess had anticipated. Wanting to take a short break, Yuuki leaves the hall to wander other places of the mansion, where she finds..?
The artists’ job is to finish th

My world goes mad.I wake up to the jingle of Doofenshmirtz Evil Inc. emitting from my phone. I look at it and see my boss telling me I don't have to work today. I sigh and fall into a deep hole suddenly appearing within the mattress of my bed and I tuck my blanket over myself. At this rate I won't get enough money this month to last me through December and buying Christmas presents have to be taken of my list.My world goes mad.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I grumble and reach out towards my phone once more, turning on the XFM Breakfast show with Danny Wallace. They're talking about dreams. I then decide that I really need to get up, and so I do... After another 15 minutes since I realize; I'm not working today.
Eventually, I'm up and I carry my computer into the living room and turn on the DVD. I didn't finish the Lost episode yesterday so I might as well look at it now before I start thinking to much about my situation. Dad says I think to much.
I make a warm bread bun in the oven but when I'm putting butter on it, the little bugger decides that he

:iconsakuraflowerplz1:What does Kuchiki Byakuya do when he's back home after work?:iconsakuraflowerplz1:
I think that I am not the one who is curious about what happens after every worktime in Byakuya's life. When he returns back home, he escapes from the nosy eyes of other Shinigami and he doesn't have to be so cold-tempered, calm and stoic. And that's exactly where you guys should enter the stage and allow your imagination to work! Feel free to let your ideas flow into a drawing but beware of some short rules that you shall be obligated to abide, if you want to participate in this contest.
Illustrations about Byakuya with other people also allowed

Common Misconceptions: Traditional ArtFirst of all, hello! It's been almost a year since I contributed a blog post to this lovely group so I want to say hi I'm back folks! I have a lot of artsy things to share with you all that I've learned (and am still learning) so hang on tight! While I was thinking what to write as my first topic, I decided to kind of go back to the beginning as far as our thinking as artists goes in the creation process. I've come up with a short series called "Common Misconceptions" just to debunk some myths and misguided trends that are so often part of what we experience as we grow. This first "Common Misconceptions" topic will focus on traditional art.Common Misconceptions: Traditional Art3 years ago in Personal More Like This

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through dA,
Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.
Deviations were hung in digital Galleries with care,
In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.
The n00bs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.
And Fella in his 'kerchief, and spyed with his night-light,
Had just settled down to log-off for the night,
When over in the Forums there arose such a clatter,
Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.
To the browser window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than broadband, his reindeer were famed,
After all his favorite art

Become a better artistTo improve and become really good at art. Isn't that what all of us, artists, secretly wish for? That we, one day, become as good as the idols we've looked up to.Become a better artist2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Well, we can't be all born with mad talent. But there are certainly ways to speed up the process for you! In the journal here, I listed some tips and tricks that helped me getting to the point where I am now. I thought I'd share them with you. And maybe you can add to the list. I'm always willing to learn.
Give up on being a mangaka -- or hold more realistic expectations
Admit it. Most of us here started drawing manga because we liked the style at a certain point. How awesome would it be to one day become a pro in that field. A real manga artist (or mangaka, like they say in Japan)! The truth is... becoming a mangaka isn't that easy. It it were, many more people would be one. First of all, mangaka's live in Japan. That's the only country with a manga industry big enough to actually ha

Spent so much wonderful time with lovely friends, both old and new.
On Friday we were just normal us and walked around meeting people and I photographed Basketball playing boys among some, which I'm currently editing, and that was really fun.
On Saturday we cosplayed as Miguel & Tulio from El Dorado and we entered the cosplay competition and sketch competition.
Oh! And Miguel & Tulio got married as well. XD
On Sunday we were normal us again and I photographed so many awesome people! SO MUCH FUN! I think people photographed me photographing at one point because I often lie on the floor and put myself in weird positions for photos.
And at the ending ceremony we were told that we won the sketch competition so we got on stage and got our prize! SO AWESOME!
And then I was called on stage as well for an honorary mention on my Tulio cosplay! GAH!
