What I got from Japan today ^^Hi people! How your Xmas holidays went? ^^
Watch the video I made today and posted above please ^o^
Tab-mate Controller is a handy controller designed for Celsys programs (and no, the Tab-Mate Controller doesn't replace your tablet, you need to take your pen-tablet with the other hand to draw)
Celsys doesn't ship this item out Japan though, so a japanese person got it for me and sent it to my country :iconbigbrowplz:
What else could I say? I love using it!
Anything you learned from Anime/Manga?Is there anything Manga/Anime have taught you?Anything you learned from Anime/Manga?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
In every story there's a message like "believe in yourself" or "there is something like true love".
Do you want to tell me how the Japanese stories influenced your live?
I love the message "live your dreams". In Germany, the opening of Digimon Adventure is "Leb deinen Traum", still one of my favorite openings ever! *__*
(Has the same music like the original version "Butterfly".)
Like everyone, I have dreams. Some are a bit unrealistic but some are reachable like becoming a good artist! Yeah, I dreamed of being a popular artists since I was a child and started to draw Manga! >//////

Internet Co, Ltd has recently tweeted that they are going to make an English version of Megpoid Gumi. It is expected to be released Feb 2013 in conjunction with VOCALOID Trans-Pacific, the move to bring VOCALOID to America and popularize it. You can listen to a very quick demo of her singing "I Love You".

18 October 2012
A new rhythm game will be coming out in the future called Megpoid the Music#. Here's the official website. As the name suggests, the game will be focusing on songs sung by Gumi. Not much is known about the game so far, but apparently there will be a multi-player aspect, 2 types of gameplay, and the ability to "talk" to Gumi. No list of songs has been released so far.
Also, Mayu is being sold on several retailer websites. She's currently being sold at around ￥11,500 and her release date is December 5, 2012. The Vocaloid product will also include 2 CDs of Mayu songs, mouse pad, and a strap.

Also for judging I probably will just do it myself this time since the other admins may not be here often enough to get it done within a timely manner and I don't want people to get their friends to vote for them. That kind of thing. ^^

Attention, don't give away your work!If possible please this news article so that more people can see it and be wary, thank you!Attention, don't give away your work!1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
This week I received messages from two different people (through Etsy and Storenvy) offering to make a review of my work. They splattered huge statics, like having millions of instagram followers, popularity, or having done it before and making people famous. Of course, their generosity was conditioned by me agreeing to send them some of my work for free. While I don't object the concept of reviewing someone's work, I worry that this has become a popular way of scamming artisan crafters to give away their work for free with promises of exposure and increasing their sales. I wanted to write this journal to tell everyone to be careful, specially if you're just starting your business and struggling to get noticed, it may sound tempting but you should never give away your hard work!
One of them was even more blunt and said that he could write a positive review of my work just by
FlatteredI should be flattered.Flattered1 year ago in Personal More Like This
There are people who literally spend hours of their life every day following me. People who obsessively save every work of art I post online. People who comment and hypothesize about everything I do, even when I am not doing anything. People who make their own comics, websites, and blogs because of me. People who meticulously sift through my stats, my comments, and near-decade old journals. People who obsessively screen-capture everything I say or do anywhere online. People who seemingly have no life other than to talk about every aspect of my own. People who, day in and day out, never tire of talking about me to their friends online.
These people are amazing and I am continually astounded by them and the things they come up with... over a worthless and unimportant cartoonist.
Not even a good cartoonist either. Just an average, slightly stubborn, mediocrely popular on a dubious website... cartoonist. Not a politician with real influence in the world. Not a famous

What I Turn To When My Brain Goes 'Blurgh'I really want to share with everyone the artists and places I often turn to when I'm feeling low on inspiration. Right before I begin a painting I will always browse through my catalogue of inspiration for a kind of... artistic boost before I begin.What I Turn To When My Brain Goes 'Blurgh'1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Firstly, my main source of inspiration does genuinely spring from my imagination. I've been drawing since I was about six-years-old and I always have a seed of an idea singing to me from some part of my brain. The need to breathe life into that little idea is a terrible itch, but a gratifying one.
Most of my pictures are inspired by women. Obviously. I love female anatomy, so my ideas will always start with an idea for a pose. The hair is my favourite part and that often completes the image in my mind - I love creating the flow and shapes. Colour comes next, often inspired by the environment and season I picture the subject in. The image grows from there.
But of course I am inspired by what I see around me. It's fair to say that prett

I have been thinking my whole life that my name is Christina Anastasia Hanlin. I have told everyone about that..... Everyone knows my name......
But you know what.....
That's apparently not my name.....
So the other night, I was having a mental breakdown about being adopted and I was going off like, "YOU COULD HAVE HAD A MORE INTELLIGENT DAUGHTER THAN ME YOU COULD HAVE PICKED SOMEONE SO MUCH PRETTIER I'VE FAILED YOU GUYS AS A DAUGHTER I WILL NEVER BE GOOD ENOUGH NO ONE LIKES ME MY OWN MOM DIDN'T EVEN WANT ME WHO THE FUCK WOULD WANT A STUPID FATASS LIKE MEEEEEEE" and just my usual mental breakdown stuff. So I thought to make me feel better(or possibly worse) I would go take a peek at the letter my birth mother wrote about abandoning me. My parents never wanted me to read it. THEY NEVER WANT ME TO READ IT. So, of course, I want to read it.
I seriously go through every key I can find, trying to open that little suit-case-safe thing. I finally found the key an
