Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo
if you've loved Megane-chan to Yankee-kun before, then you will also love this. Lol this manga is full of fanservice for fangirls and fanboys alike, and it's so damn funny on top of that
Some fanservice scenes XD
Improving your Manga-styleManga and Anime are a new generation of art, spreading all over the world right now. It is an important aspect of Japanese culture, a solid part of the youth-generation in the US and slowly starts spreading in Europe as well. Even though many people still dont know what Mangas or Animes actually are, most kids already know and they even try to draw this new kind of art themselves. This way the tolerance among adults starts growing as well, a good way to expand the Manga-culture.Improving your Manga-style7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
But as for any kind of art, many people have problems in improving their own style or even finding it. This news-article is directed to any kind of artist that is interested in improving himself/herself.</i>
Ive been asked multiple times how some artists manage to improve very fast and others seem to never improve at all and even though I first thought it has to do with practice I had to admit myself that it does not only depend on mere practice but much more on how you practice and especi

Because of the amount of notes I'm receiving regarding this matter, I decided to write a journal entry (though I think it's obvious, but oh, well (TwT; ).
I don't draw art for free (except when I draw for myself, but that's a different matter altogether).

Paypal TransactionsJust a small, yet important update for future commissions/sales if I'll open, for anyone whoever pay via Paypal system:Paypal Transactions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. If you are sending a payment to me, please never send under "friends and family", "gift" etc. categories which doesn't chrage an additional fee when I receive the money. I will accept the fees on Paypal! Here is an explaination:
"You can never control what your commissioner is going to say. If they select "send as gift" or other options, you are breaking their ToS and you will be so very banned if they catch you doing this. It only takes one slip up for it to happen. I have seen this happen and never advise people to tell people to send as anything but a service.
Never try to stretch your definition of "friend and family" and hope that "teeechnicly it COULD be your friend depending on your definition heheh" will fly. Paypal will not split hairs with you. If they decide that this person does not qualify to be your friend, their judgment is final. I

The Pixlett fraud has been fixed!I have some AMAZING NEWS ;A;The Pixlett fraud has been fixed!6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Everyone who has been scammed by Pixlett / ToxicMutagen is getting fully reimbursed by Paypal for our losses!
First off, the other night, when I logged onto Paypal, I saw messages that the chargebacks filed against me had been closed! :'D
In the "Status Details" section, it appears as though Paypal actually decided to investigate against Pixlett and realized that maybe HEY, THIS IS SUSPICIOUS AFTER ALL
Then, when I checked my email last night, I had some emails from Paypal.
They wrote that they are making an exception to the chargeback rule, and fully refunding me ALL money that I lost due to Pixlett (from the first incident in July!)
(P.S. I don't know why the percentage signs are showing up in the email, but the amounts are how much I got chargebacked for.)
So yes, this means that WE WON.

Fandom Pains, Cont'd.Allow me to clarify my point further. I don't mean to say "everyone has to write fanfiction the same way" or "don't draw this kind of fan art". People can write or draw whatever the hell they want, and I don't have to look at it if I don't want. But my main gripe is when the perverted vocal minority of a fanbase gets so loud and obnoxious that it overtakes the nice quiet people who just want to enjoy the show or movie or whatever. When the people who partake in the sleazier side of fandom take the spotlight and become the public's main perception of what all fans are like.Fandom Pains, Cont'd.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Not all MLP fans are demented furries with a fetish for clopfic; most of us just think it's a cute little show with a great cast of characters. Not all Wreck-It Ralph fans are insane Turbo defenders or squicky Jawbreaker shippers; most of us just find it to be a very entertaining and inspiring film. But when those obnoxious fans start acting out more, whether it's just because they want to make a point or because the

UtaPri CONTEST starts! Rules~Thank you very much to lovely people, who helped me with prizes, so I finally may to write rules a dates//UtaPri CONTEST starts! Rules~2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, the theme of this contest is Music ART!
You need to draw a work listening to one of this composition about love (and several of them about suffer and something like that). Usually, songs have something like a plot, so just understand it and draw the art about this song~~
The decision about particularly THIS theme was clear - Uta no Prince-sama is anime about music ^U^
All difficulty of this contest depends on the different random songs' plots and how you may draw UtaPri characters in this situation (music situation) using draw skills and your imagination
It will be okay to draw UtaPri guys in the count what you want ^U^ If you'd like to draw a couple, it will be AWESOME really!
The best way is to draw a classic couple (Haruka+somebody), not shounen-ai one

Fandom PainsSo I'm over on Equestria Daily yesterday, and they've got this discussion going where the fans have to think up their own episode ideas. And while a few people are taking it seriously and exploring new possibilities of the characters' personalities and the show's universe, most people are just coming up with the most disturbing self-gratifying shit. And without the slightest trace of irony, either.Fandom Pains1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I was warned about the unsavory side of the fanbase when I started watching the show, but I figured "Oh, I can just ignore that, it's no big deal." But they're everywhere. People who draw creepy explicit fan art. Or write vicious hate-fics. Or rant endlessly about how Twilight having wings is somehow a travesty to all mankind. Or have disturbing unhealthy obsessions with side characters. It all feels like they're feeding into the brony stereotype, not because they genuinely like the show that much, but as if they're just trying to say "Look at me! I'm a grown man who likes

The whole interview was posted a couple of days ago and I wanted to give an accurate translation (google translator can never be trusted) so here it is! c: (RP2 are the interviewers while HM stands for Hiro Mashima, just in case you're confused.)
RP2: The first thing to do is to thank sensei for giving us these minutes. We'd like to start with: why are your works always around magic?
HM: Because I'd love to learn how to do magic.
RP2: Do you feel comfortable developing stories centered on magic?
HM: Yes, I feel very comfortable because magic is what allows you, on one side, to dream while on the other side, gives you a big amount of freedom. In the end, it is a fantasy world, but the feelings of the characters have a special importance.

Remember, those are hacked directly from the game, in another words, that's why the leaker managed to see them in the wild. That's why the lack of the mega symbol in the name. I dunno neither how he does it... but well, hackers are suckers in this stuff, better not question too much

New Fashionable Styles: Apparel Collection 2013There are many times as an artist when you get to work on a set of illustrations that work equally well on their own and as part of a larger set. Although the individual pieces may be thematically different from each other, they follow a common visual look and feel. This is where the individual artistic style that you’ve practiced for hundreds of hours really gets to shine. Recently I was lucky enough to find myself in this situation, and I’m honored to announce the resulting set of illustrations printed on really cool HoodieBuddie™ outerwear.New Fashionable Styles: Apparel Collection 20132 years ago in Personal More Like This
