Cosplay Friday: Avengers Assemble!
by emmagucci, AnyaPanda, dextructive, Letaur, RisingParadise, captainjaze
First introduced by Marvel in 1963, The Avengers was Jack Kirby and Stan Lee’s superheroic response to the success of DC Comics’ Justice League of America.
In the original comic the founders of the superhero team were Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Ant–Man, and The Wasp who came together to defeat the evil god Loki. The 2012 live–action Avengers movie loosely based on Marvel
An open letter to my American DeviantArt friendsOkay... time for me to dedicate a little Journal space to the US Presidential Campaign.An open letter to my American DeviantArt friends3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those wishing to vote Republican this year, voting specifically for Mitt Romney, I'd like to have your ear for a moment.
I'd like you to consider fully the mettle and temprament of Mitt before casting your vote. In the UK I'm a Conservative party supporter, but I acknowledge that they have had some very pub...lic mistakes. Likewise at the last election, I identified more with the Republican Party, and had wished Obama wouldn't win... I was hoping that there'd be a decent Republican contender this year so he wouldn't get re-elected.
However, I do not feel Mitt Romney is a decent candidate... and so, I'd like you to consider voting for Barack Obama instead (before going further, I want to stress this isn't a copy & paste post, I assure you these are my own words and thoughts).
Romney has made it very clear that gay guys like myself and my friends, and my friends who identify as lesbian are second-

I've been told by several different Rangers that they wish there was a way to do something for Vic despite being in areas where there are not many conventions. We have these awesome Projects that incorporate Art and Writing, this time we thought we'd do something a little different! A Ranger sparked this idea. ( :iconKeybladeAlchemist: )

Have all your questions about cosplay answered by veteran costume designer and cosplayer Yaya Han (yayacosplay).

Comic-Con: Day 2Comic-Con Day 2 was all about cosplay, fandom, and art, art, art!Comic-Con: Day 23 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Before we get into the thick of things, we didn’t have a photo of our huge plasma screens hanging from the convention ceiling to share in our Day 1 recap, so we vowed to get that to you today! The 11 foot wide screens stream amazing works of art from Artists' Alley participants to the whole convention floor!
In Comic-Cons past, the foot traffic In Artists’ Alley got busier and busier as the week progressed, and this year is no exception. There’s something magical about speaking one-on-one with a deviant, learning their experiences, hearing how they started as an artist, and how far they’ve come. It’s an emotional connection to make with someone who was practically a stranger a few moments ago -- and then you realize you’re not really strangers when you

ATTENTION ALL WATCHERS!!!!! READ PLEASE!HELLO ALL YOU AWESOME WATCHERS!!! Pay attention. Okay so this year I'm going to be working on creating my own comic.ATTENTION ALL WATCHERS!!!!! READ PLEASE!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thats going to involve Writing, character design, drawing, possibly inking, and coloring. WHOA! Lotta work.
I want you guys to help be apart of this process and come along with me on this adventure.
I'm going to be doing a lot of different character designs and environment crafting.
There will be polls for you guys to help me choose what the characters, environments, vehicles, and creatures should look like in the book.
Also feel free to put your own input on what you think would be a cool story line but, after I've shown you the first few characters and previews. I would love to hear your ideas.
I will be posting the first few previews of the characters soon and what their names are.
I'm possibly going to put this up on Kickstarters after everything with the characters and story line has been establish
Image in cosplayHey everyone~Image in cosplay2 years ago in Personal More Like This
How ya'll been? So recently as you know I've been on a bit of a health kick. Yeah... I slightly broke it (for a month omg) XD But what has my health kick got to do with the topic of this journal? WELL! I was thinking about it today and I've seen so many comments on cosplayer's photos over the years that make me quite upset to see. There are comments like "you're fat", "you're boobs are too small" or "you're ugly". Or even the opposite of "you're too thin", "you're boobs are too big and saggy" or "your face doesn't suit this character". So as you can tell it'll be rather ranty so if you don't wanna read that's ok XD
When I first started cosplaying I got this a couple of times and yes, it hurts. It upsets me to see that people go out of their way to make someone feel bad for all the hard work they've put into a costume. So what image does everyone expect to see when cosplayers' cosplay? They expect them to look exactly like this character they're cosplaying, right? Well
How I Explain Doctor Who to my Friends:Me: So there's this Time Lord named The Doctor from the planet Gallifrey who has two hearts (because that's just what Time Lords have) and a TARDIS (Time and relative dimensions in space) which is a phone booth because the chameleon circuit broke and it's bigger on the inside and it can travel anywhere in time and space and the Doctor has these companion that are usually girls (except for his sassy gay friend, Jack) but they all end up getting disregarded in horribly depressing ways. He has a sonic screwdriver which can do all sorts of crazy shit except it doesn't work on wood but don't diss the sonic because it's cool and when the Doctor's body starts failing he can regenerate into a new one right now he's on his 11th but the 10th one was slim (and a little bit foxy) and got him laid a lot. Anyway, he basically travels around time and space, saving the universe from villains such as the Daleks and Cybermen when the Doctor was younger there was actually a Time War betHow I Explain Doctor Who to my Friends:3 years ago in Personal More Like This

I am so thankful to Gold Coast Film Festival for inviting us this year. It was an incredible expereince, and one that was really unlike any other con or event we've ever been to. I think what really hit me was being in a van with the other Film Festival guests (Lucas Till (Havoc from X-Men: First Class), Natalia Tena (Tonks from Harry Potter), Vic Mignogna and other actors while driving to Supanova's Dreamworld After Dark. I thought "here are some famous people, and we're included in their group... this is NUTS!". We also had a booth that we were stationed at for Supanova and I didn't notice until one of the staff at the booth told us that

5 Unanswered QuestionsA few times a week I'll get questions in the form of “notes” on dA, emails, and private messages on Twitter, but I'm sorry to say that I don't normally find the time to answer them. But I've saved the most interesting ones in hopes I'd answer them during a slow work day. That day is today.5 Unanswered Questions1 year ago in Personal More Like This
(Most of these questions are paraphrased, or a mix of two different questions.)
1. You charge way too much for commissions (between $1000-$3000 for 11x17). How do you justify that?
I agree it's a lot of money. When I first started pricing commissions so high, it was for 2 reasons: I only had time for a handful a year, and having a commission list stressed me out. I priced them high so less people would ask. Commissions are nice, but I see it as a short term money game, whereas working on creator-owned properties is more lucrative over time when you think about prints, t shirts, licensing, etc.
The work I put into a 1k commission is the same I'd put into a Batman cover. And I sell B

Sorry I've been away so long.
Here's a preview of an upcoming statue I sculpted with Tweeterhead.
Elvira Mistress of the Dark!
It was an absolute joy to work on this with Tweeterhead and to get feedback and support from Cassandra Peterson as we made her.
Look for preorders to begin in October through Sideshow Collectibles and Tweeterhead, if you're interested.
I'd imagine I will be able to share sculpt shots soon.
She was painted by artist David Fisher, who did a fantastic job.
Thanks for looking! Best to you all-
Hard Light Effect (Video Journal)This is the first live tutorial I recorded so I had no idea what I will end up with. Basically I wanted to show how to get a high contrast hard light effect in Photoshop, almost HDR looking. I wanted to keep things realistic so I used the contrast masking technique to keep the original shadows of the model. This tutorial can be followed in Adobe Elements as well.Hard Light Effect (Video Journal)3 years ago in Personal More Like This

We had a great time. The match lasted about an hour, and then we sat around and ate pizza until we ran out. It was fun. :3
...Except this one little girl who decided to try to ruin the whole thing.
I told you guys I'd give you a complete synopsis, so...here it is:
Tonight in laser tag...
We got there, we paid them for three rounds and went to our "orientation" for the laser tag vests and guns. Since there were less of us, we each had to be paired up with three other people per three of us. So that's 6 per team.
My team consisted of this:
My friend Ricky (in ROTC)
My other friend Jackie
A little Asian girl wearing a paper crown
Asian girl's father
a little fat white boy in a party hat
My friend Nathaniel
My friend Chris
My friend Alex
Asian girl's mom
A little white girl in a party hat
A white woman.
We were all kinda bummed that we got separated, considering we could have fought the other people and it woulda been a perfect
