For the halfmask:
I was heavily inspired by Volpin's Portal Gun tutorial, even though I wasn't making the gun. I tried to follow his process, since I knew that the finished mask had to have the same plastic-y glossy finish. However, Volpin is a crafting genius and used a lot of vague, but still very technical, mumbo-jumbo in his descriptions so I interpreted it as best I could.
Also, the foam carving and the gesso sanding is very messy and will leave dust everywhere. Don't do it indoors! I was stupid and pretty much did this entire project in my bedroom. Everything is still kinda dusty and I probably have cancer or something from breathing it in.
Step one was gathering the materials:
Medium and Fine Grit Sandpaper
Black Acrylic Paint
Voyage to the Unknown: Artisan CraftsI've started a new feature in which I will browse through a category or sub-category I don't necessarily browse frequently, or the ones I browse the least, and collect some of the art I find stands out! The point of this is to challenge myself and discover new art in the process! I'll also be tagging people in each issue to follow suit and do their own, however, don't feel obligated to respond to the tag. I just want everyone to know I'd love to see them do their own spin of this featureVoyage to the Unknown: Artisan Crafts6 months ago in Art Features More Like This

Zelda Wii U Rumored to be BIGGEST Zelda Game Yet!"According to our source in Japan, Nintendo is betting big on the next Zelda game, set for release in 2014 on the Wii U. This comes from the same source that accurately predicted Wii U achievements in the past, and broke the news Nintendo was working on a Wii U social network, which turned out to be Miiverse. So we’re quite confident in this information. The source is from within Nintendo and has seen the new Zelda game in action. He’s impressed, to say the least.Zelda Wii U Rumored to be BIGGEST Zelda Game Yet!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The first bit of information concerns the visual style of the game. Many Zelda fans are hoping for a darker, Twilight Princes-like Zelda on the Wii U, but it looks like Nintendo is sticking to most recent Zelda art style, found in Skyward Sword. “Nintendo is sticking to the core values of Zelda, while trying to appeal to a wide range of gamers, casual and hardcore”, our source told us, adding, “They feel they’ve found the sweet spot with Skyward Sword, and they’re continuing this appr
A Zelda conspiracy theoryFor those of you who quested for the Biggoron Sword in Ocarina of Time, remember when Link was to deliver a potion made from Kokiri Forest mushroom? But when Link arrives, a little Kokiri girl tells him that he(the Kakariko Village Elder's son) isnt there anymore. That all who enter the Kokiri Forest would become stalfos(or skeletons).A Zelda conspiracy theory3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, how did that guy "become" a stalfos? Do the Kokiri have a dark sinister ritual in which the skin the victim alive until he's nothing but a skeleton and then use some secret deku magic to re-animate the corpse to protect the Forest Temple from outsiders?
Just what truely goes on in the Lost Woods? What dark blood-thirsty evil things happens to those unlucky enough to get caught in the Kokiri Forest?????
IT"S A CONSPIRACY!!!!

And now it's time for our first Christmas event!
Christmas Community Collab!
The goal: draw a Nintendo female character in the spirit of Christmas. She can be unwrapping gifts, doing winter outdoors activities, or even be dressed as Santa, but really, it can be anything you want, as long as it is in the spirit of Christmas.
Your drawing will be pasted into a big Christmas tree background, for all to see. If you don't feel like drawing a whole character, you can always draw decorations to be put on the Christmas tree! We will need many of them, so don't hesitate to submit many!
Since this is a collab and not a contest, there is no prize to be won. However, deviations we judge the best will be placed near the top, with the very best being featured here in this group, in addition of being put at

Four thousand words.
All prompts are live
Here's what's gonna happen. I will list four prompts, one for each week of this month. Once a new week starts, the prompt for that week will be posted. Since I've been rather word-count heavy lately, we're taking it back to Flash Fiction. Because the prompts are going to be fairly simple compared to the past, I will be attaching a difficulty to each one, mostly to help you avoid leaping toward to most obvious initial ideas. Read on...
MAKE SURE YOU FAVE THIS JOURNAL AND WATCH FOR THE WEEKLY UPDATES!
April 3-8: A character does not want to go home.
Difficulty -- there's no abuse waiting for them when they get there.
April 9-15: Something they believed in their whole life has been a lie.
Difficulty -- no religion allowed.

Public Service Announcement for HetaliansWhat happened in France last night was a tragedy. 150 civilians lost their lives last night. Family members lost their loved ones last night. Do not make this a joke. Don't use this tragedy for the feels factor. We need to support France, and especially Paris, the best we can. Don't draw France or your OC bleeding to death. It's disrespectful. We need to remember those lost and be thankful for the ones who made it out safe.Public Service Announcement for Hetalians3 months ago in Personal More Like This

Since 2009 and the creation of my princess costume Zelda de Twilight princess I received many message of people asking me almost every time for the same questions.
First of all I'm going to answer only general answers (everybody have small secrets) ^^ but I'll try to be the most clear and detailed possible.
- Where you bought your costume ?:
I made it myself from scratch, my job is to create costumes and accessories ; visit my store and my site if you want a personal costume order ! :
- How do you made your Zelda's armors/ pauldrons ? :
I have to create a tutorial there some time ago = http: // narayu.deviantart.com / gallery / 12348205 * / d1ojy0r
- How do you made the dress and the bodice (pink part of the dress) ?:
I create my sewing patterns, I even took some patterns for basis like these (as simplicity or McCall's) before mod

Chapter 0. Wow, was I surprised to see Raiden with a human looking jaw on.
Of course, he was pulled straight into action, due to the man he's protecting is abducted by a group of cyborgs known as the Desperado. And that's when he takes off the suit and reveals his MGS4 cyborg self. Except, they must've figured out a way to make his cyborg muscles less in need of high-oxygenated blood, so his blood color is back to a humanly red. And..I
