Some manga recommendationOkie, you may or maynot have already read them, but anyway I'll just recommend some manga I read recently and take a liking to ^^. So here we go:Some manga recommendation2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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-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

YOU HAVE TO READ THIS!!!!!HIRO MASHIMA BARCELONA 2012 INTERVIEW!!!!! NASHI!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The 'Nashi' interview in Barcelona:
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.
RP2: Have you thought about getting into other

Last year was my first year running this group, on my own. I had my ups and downs working on this group alone, but again like last year; I promise to keep working on this group so that it will keep growing and expanding. I hope those of you who read these journals, or stumble upon them once in awhile, will support me. To encourage this change, I have a few brief questions I'd like you to answer if you get the chance, be honest about your answers is all I ask. Don't be afraid to recommend a favorite, write a review, or suggest something for the group to do!
1. Does this group engage you to participate in the contests, submit drawings, or read the manga series listed? How?
2. Does this group have enough variety in submissions?
3. Do you feel welcome to contribute to the group?
4. I manage this group by myself, do you think some CoFounders/Contributors would be helpful?
It's also time for our second annual ShojoBeat Valentine's Day/ White Day
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
Spongebob Animated AtrocitiesSo I went through all of the Spongebob episodes, and marked the ones that I know are bad as animated atrocities. Do you know how many I found? No seriously, guess. 84. And then I went through it again and counted 89. Let me say that these are the ones that I've seen (I'm unfamiliar with most of season 8 and 9). You don't believe me? You seriously don't believe me? Here's a list of all of the animated atrocities that I've counted and a brief reason to why they're an atrocity. I can't believe I'm saying this, but please tell me if there's any that I missed:Spongebob Animated Atrocities11 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

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

Contest Announcement~I am officially announcing my first contest, i have planned this for a month and finally i can officially announce itContest Announcement~9 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The idea of this contest is simple, draw one of my OCs Crow or Fox or both if you feel inspired!
They are my original characters. They are creatures with magic but that doesn't make the very special because they live in a world where many things are magical. Also they live in a forest. The place they live in has no cities or technology, only clans of different magical creatures. They have absolutely no contact with humans either although humans do exist in this world, these creatures just stay away from them. Fox is cunning and composed, while Crow is easily manipulated and sincere. Fox is blackmailing him and keeping him under her thumb because she wants to keep him close to her and that is the only way she knows how.
here are images of them for inspiration
