Dango and Pocky Recipe!Okay, I promiced two awesome artists on dA, :iconToonTwins: I would give them the recipe for dango. You all can use the recipe to your liking as wellDango and Pocky Recipe!7 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here it is...
You require the following ingredients:
1 1/3 cup joshinko (rice flour. Or you can get rice flour and grind it, but it must be ground just enough so it's as a flour. Any wheat grinder would work well. Just use the electronic one. I did it by hand and it hurts>>)
Making the rice dumplings:
Put rice flour in a bowl and add warm water. Knead the dough well (or just use a metal spoon if you want to). Make small round dumplings (the size of rubber balls). Place the dumplings in a (vegetable) steamer and steam them on high heat for 10 min. Cool the dumplings and skewer them in bamboo sticks. (3-4 dumplings each stick.)
Making the sweet sause:
Mix water, sugar, and soysauce in a pan and put it on medium heat. Mix the water and katakuriko starch in a cup an

Top Ten Gruesome FairytalesStumbled across this today.... Needless to say I'm pretty disturbed now. Good ol' fairytales.

The Pied Piper
In the tale of the Pied Piper, we have a village overrun with rats. A man arrives dressed in clothes of pied (a patchwork of colors) and offers to rid the town of the vermin. The villagers agree to pay a vast sum of money if the piper can do it – and he does. He plays music on his pipe which draws all the rats out of the town. When he returns for payment – the villagers won't cough up so the Pied Piper decides to rid the town of children too! In most modern variants, the piper draws the children to a cave out of the town and when the townsfolk finally agree to pay up, he sends them back. In the darker original, the piper leads the children to a river
SPIKE updatesJust thought I'd share with you guys some updates on the progress of finishing my "SPIKE" novel.SPIKE updates3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A lot of people have asked me how it's going, when it will be published and stuff. I really appreciate getting asked these things because it shows that people are actually interested in my writings, and that it just such a great feeling
I've got two news for you guys today though: one bad news and one good news. Let's start with the bad news.
I haven't finished writing SPIKE yet.
And I honestly don't know when it will be finished - which oddly enough brings us to the good news:
I've made a new, major decision in the SPIKE story that I think a lot of you will be happy to hear. As usual I don't want to spoil too much, but there is a part in the story where Spike and Sam are separated from each other for quite a long while. At first I was planning on only writing from Spike's point of view, like, what he's experiencing during this separation period. I figured that since he's the main cha
Artists Toolbox: Colored PencilsColored pencils are widely used as a fun and readily available art tool. I'm sure most if not all of us have tried our hand at colored pencils, even if it was only while we were children. While colored pencils may not be as respected as paints such as oil, acrylic or watercolors, colored pencils shouldn't be under-estimated in the impact they can and do have on the art world.Artists Toolbox: Colored Pencils3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Different Types of Colored Pencils
Wax based colored pencils are probably the most common and readily available types of colored pencils on the market. As with any type of colored pencil, these come in varying qualities and prices.
Oil based colored pencils in my experience are not as easy to find unless you are shopping online or in an art store. These colored pencils are excellent if you are planing on coloring on wood or another similar surface. Blending oil based colored pencils ca
PE: Learning to paint with deviantArtA lot of people want to learn to draw and paint better but they just don't know where to start. You don't need an expensive art course to learn and progress, sometimes the answers are not far away. On DeviantArt, artists not only share their artworks but many of them are willing to share their working secrets, they create tutorials and FAQ journals or simply answer to your notes if you ask them. When you know what you want to improve, searching for a good tip gets even easier.PE: Learning to paint with deviantArt3 years ago in Art Features More Like This

I miss this place.
Most of the people I've known here since 2010, aren't using their accounts anymore. Seeing these crossed out names on my friends list makes me a bit sad. Happily, there are other ways of keeping in touch...but some of you are only a part of my past. In case anyone of these people reads this: I miss You. And I wish You all the best.
On the other hands, some of these dA friendships of mine got even stronger during the last years. The best example is my little darling sister "Fairy-of-the-valley. We met this summer for the first time and it was one of the greatest days of my life.
I've been absent, but I've never wanted to leave this place! I still believe it can bring even more happiness into my life.
I've cleaned up my gallery a bit, deleted some things I could not even believe I'd ever posted and I ha

Contest! Draw Sophie and get a MH Drawing!What is this contest about?:Contest! Draw Sophie and get a MH Drawing!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Draw my doll Sophie
you can draw her chibi, realistic or in your own style, but her face must be always visible and you must draw her joints. She is a doll, I wouldn't like her to look like she wasn't. This means you MUST draw her joints, but you can draw her with any expression, like if she was alive.
You can draw her with the clothes she has in the photos or even design your own clothes for her, so you have total freedom about it.
how many drawings can I do for this contest?:
As many as you want without limit, as long as they are 100% original and finished (full colored). No work in progress, no drawings in striped paper.
Traditional or digital?:
Both are accepted
Please, be original:
Don't steal other people's drawings, don't use bases, and please, don't just copy a photo T_T
You may use a photo as a reference, but don't traze it.
If you do, you will be kicked out from the co

Kuroshitsuji anime links!Kuroshitsuji anime linksKuroshitsuji anime links!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, here are the links to all the episodes of the Kuroshitsuji anime. If you cannot find the episodes subtitled and/or dubbed in another language, comment on the group page, comment here, or send me a note and I will do my best to find it and then add it to the list below. If there is a link expired, doesn't work, or leads to a different page, tell me and I will fix it. I will also add the name of the sites in abbreviations before the link, that way you will know what website the link leads to in case your computer acts badly towards one of the websites. Also, none of the websites that are listed below require you to join. If Veoh only has 5 minutes of an episode, then that means most likely that you'll have to install Veoh Web Player. You can install it here. http://www.veoh.com/download
Videozer does have a time limit, but I cannot remember how long you have to wait until you can resume watching. I believe 72 minutes. Enjoy!

I'm busy, so very busy. School work and other crap.
Here on dA, I'm quite busy, too. Working on many projects, gifts, journal-features... it's hard to catch up with so many messages I get every day. Also, I noticed that some of my deviantWATCH messages are disappearing.. I mean, I look at my friend's galleries and they do post new Artwork, but it doesn't always appear in my messages when I check it. So, if you have any particular deviations you want me to put a comment on, just give me the links here in comments, please.
