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-style6 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

Bookworm Species Bookworms are creatures that attaches to a certain book, they prey on humans who reads said book by taking their soul. Humans with their souls taken becomes thoughtless and emotionless, an empty vessel. Bookworms have monster or animal features such as claws, sharp teeth, horns, and some even have weapons. The number on their body represents the page number which they're attached to, waiting for the reader to open said page. Once opened, they will jump for the kill. Their page number determines their strength; the higher the number, the weaker they are.Bookworm Species4 months ago in Personal More Like This

SAI pressure sensitivity SOLUTION!!!Now, there has been a lot of problems over this I'm gonna tell you what to do with some handy screenshots.SAI pressure sensitivity SOLUTION!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It gets really annoying when you loose pressure sensitivity and you're in the middle of drawing and that is because sometimes SAI can lose you're settings, after you have been told to remove all preferences and that, you, like me, may get no response from your pen but only when you press hard on it. I have found a great solution.
This might not work for all users, because of the type of laptop and the type of tablet because it has no sensitivity installed on it at all., but I hope that this will work for you.
Note: Before we go on I forgot to say that you need a tablet, Wacom preferably and you also have to have purchased SAI.
So, thats what it looks like. yours might be different though, but the next steps will help. Go to Others - Options - DigitalSupport

Competiton time!! UPDATE: This competition is now OVER. i will be judging the entries over the next weekCompetiton time!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Firstly, sorry this group has been so quiet for so long, been really busy, but now it's time for a competition!
I know it's near the end of summer but this competition is still going to have a summer theme, anyway, on with the rules:
The theme is Ice Cream
The image must contain screentone if it has no screentone or no obvious use of screentone it will be declined, this is after all a screentone based group.
It can be any style! Not just limited to manga, it can be traditional or digital, which ever you prefer! Obviously no literature, as it doesn't contain screentone . . . .
It MUST be submitted to the contest folder called 'Ice Cream Contest'
Only one entry per person
The image must be made for the contest and must, obviously, follow the theme
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~1 year 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 Pains10 months 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.

My High School Teachers SuckedThats what I get for not getting into selective school, now the more I think about it, the more I realise that my teachers back in High School really sucked at their jobs. From a mature point of view now I can understand why certain teachers did certain stuff etc, whether its trying to teach a class of bad student or simply taking a day off to do whatever. Lets start with my maths teacher shall we?My High School Teachers Sucked2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Maths teacher: I was never good at maths, I'm an Asian fraud. All I remember learning is Sine, Cosine and Tangent. What were they? I have no idea, I just remembered they were somehow important. Yet I have never used it before afterwards, how weird right? So our class was pretty bad, it was a bad class in a bad school with a bad teacher, how bad? My Teacher used to teach a little bit then says he needs to get something from the office and then never come back. He did that so many times! I think he just went for a nap or something. He didn't wanna teach us, he knew we didn't wanna learn
