Featured Prints Artist: Stanley Lau
Stanley Lau a.k.a. Artgerm is a busy child as an illustrator, designer, concept artist and art director. Born and bred in Hong Kong, he soaked up his creativity and interest in arts early on and trained his artistic skills and knowledge ever since in a never-ending process. Filled with creative juices to the top of his head, Stanley is active all day with various projects at his Imaginary Friends Studios designing art and concepts for computer and card games companies, animation houses or comic publishers. He is also founder of his own advertising & design agency and a t-shirt label, and when Stanley is not working on any of these, he can be found playing video games across many platforms or the occasional karaoke session. We are proud to feature Artgerm as our Prints Artist of the Month in a very interesting interview.
[UPDATE V. 0.1] Object-tan Contest!:iconmikeinel: has offered to draw the top 3 winner's Object-tans How awesome of him, yeah?[UPDATE V. 0.1] Object-tan Contest!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I would like to announce an up coming contest! (I know this is out of the blue, the admins and I were contemplating it a while back but I think we're ready to take this on.)
The goal of the "object-tan" contest is to pick ANY object (Speakers, remote, printer... Lamp? ect.) and personify it, or turn it into a human(like) figure. Much like how Mike did for the Console Wars.
Now I think a big part of this contest is to go crazy, be creative and do things your own way. So there is no real restrictions. Just title the piece after the object you chose, and submit it to the folder I've set up for this contest.
August 20th (for now)
Enter as many times as you want! Make as many Object-tans as you want!

Username changes?I had to kind of do a double-take when I realized DA just introduced this feature.Username changes?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You know, there was a time when I wanted to change my name to ANYTHING other than SonicRocksMySocks. I thought it up when I was 15 without realizing I'd be saddled with that alias for potentially a lifetime.
When I started gaining renown on the internet, there was even a time where I considered making a new DeviantArt account JUST to change my username, but by then my reputation was already cemented. It's silly and childish and doesn't fit a 20-something artist who is trying to get serious about her art...
After working on my 8th DeviantArt anniversary flash and going back to my roots, it sort of dawned on me.
No other username fits me better.
Maybe I was embarrassed of it for a time, but now, after 8 years, there's no way in hell I'd ever be anybody else. My art is ABOUT childhood and youthful spirit, and that's what I remember when I think of my nickname. It reminds me of where I ca

First of all Hello and Welcome to Improvement-Club! If you've just joined the group or are thinking about joining, you're in the right place! Here are some simple Rules and group guidelines that should be followed.
Last updated: 28.06.2014
General Etiquette Rules
Do not advertise on the front page. This includes group promotion as well as announcing commission status or contests. Also, don't beg/ask for points on our front page.
When you have questions, please send a note to the group, not the admins individually.
Do not ask why your image hasn't been corrected or how long it will take. We simply don't know, nor do we have any control over what people choose to correct. (And sometimes, pieces submitted after yours will be corrected before yours. It happens.)
Don't take it personally if you ask to
The MMD R-18 rule, hentai artists and...the LAW!?WARNING NSFW images belowThe MMD R-18 rule, hentai artists and...the LAW!?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
OK first I want to make it clear, that I am a pervert. In fact whenever I see something sexual in nature my face goes like this
OK enough of that
…And treat them as art, well at least most of them are. Some are, of course, not my thing. One reason why whenever this gets brought up in MMD all I do is shut up most of the time. This is because people will always stick to the most convenient answer which is "don't do it" and if you go against them, I feel like I'll just get bombarded with prejudices by the modeler's cult.
First of all in MMD there are so called "Rules", these are what the modelers (modelers are the creators of the 3D models, while models refers to the characters or objects that was created using a computer software) tells you what they allow and what they don't want you to do in a model. But there's one rule that ticks me off. This is the restriction by the modelers to use their models with R-18 works. This rule is basically p
How to get attention on deviantArtThis is probably the one question that every artist on deviantArt asks: how can I be popular? How can I make the front page?How to get attention on deviantArt5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
There are many different answers to this. I've given examples of my photos along with each point to explain.
-Be Dedicated. In order to be popular, you need to have a dedication to photography, drawing, writing, etc. Writing is exceptionally difficult to make the front page with, because many people are on here just for photography and fan art, not writings. For photography, you need to upload a lot and ask a lot of questions. Just give it a shot. It's okay to mimic your favorite artists, just not too thoroughly. Mimicking helps you see how to get better, and what makes a good photo. You can also think about sending notes to your favorite photographers. Trust me, when I first did, I was extremely intimidated, and thought they wouldn't have enough time to answer me. But most people on here are immensely understanding and nice to your situation, becau
HetaOni's ending/plotThe Holy Roman Empire is behind it all. It was the ruins of his old 'house' that the gang decided to screw themselves over with, that Italy subconsciously remembered and decided to go visit. Since he had disappeared, people had been coming to visit his old house and he didn't like that, so he had set up several booby traps with horrible alien-monsters to ward them off. When he realized that Italy would finally be coming back to him he was overjoyed but realized that since he didn't 'exist' anymore it would be very difficult to materialize back at his old house. Then he realized that Italy didn't really want to be in his house, mostly because of the misunderstanding that the alien monsters were trying to kill him. So instead he sent the alien-monsters to capture him and take him, but just as in old times he proved to be elusive and couldn't be caught. Unfortunately in the process the single-minded alien monsters had killed all his friends, causing Italy great grief. The last alien-monstHetaOni's ending/plot3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Vocaloid JBF Flower Wreath + Ciel lenses, etc.Jin's Flower Wreath ProcessVocaloid JBF Flower Wreath + Ciel lenses, etc.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sometime last May, Kat moonlightflight and I cosplayed our favorite Vocaloid song, "Just Be Friends".
Their outfits seem simple at a glance, but that actually makes things more complicated sometimes. Hahah. Despite Luka's dress looking like something you could probably find in a mall, Charmie yaoiangel14 made the dress from scratch exactly as it looked in the artwork, just for Kat moonlightflight. Kat and I also did our best with the part of their outfits that had the most amount of detail (which also happens to be our favorite parts) the flower wreaths.
I have some pictures of the progress of my wreath, so I thought I'd share them. This probably isn't the best method of going about this, but this is how I did mine and I found it pretty easy. (I wish I could have taken more photos or a video, but to be honest I wasn't quite sure I'd pull this off at first. Hahah!)

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.

How to get more pageviewsThis includes getting more fav's, comments, and watchers. Just use one of the following techniques, or all of them if you're into it:How to get more pageviews7 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
1- EMO technique: let other deviants sympathize with you by checking your page daily to make sure you haven't committed suicide.
- Put a picture of you crying, cutting your wrist, or eating your own flesh as a sign of unworthiness and self destruction.
- Write more than 10 journals telling people that you're closing your account because you aren't getting enough attention.
- Tell people you've got a deadly disease, suffering from social drama, lost your eyeglasses and now your dog is helping you surf the internet.
2- Popular deviants technique: this is also called the parasite or the leech technique.
- After finding a very popular artist, constantly send shouts in their shoutbox, with lots of icons to drag attention.
- Stare at their status, once they appear online, wait for them to submit a new deviation or a journal entry.
