Random Art Raffle (closed)Hi everyone!Random Art Raffle (closed)8 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is really random, out of spite and I don't know if anybody would be interested, but I've been giving a thought of random art raffle for over a month and.. here I am! This is my gratitude to all my watchers <3
The raffle winners will receive an artwork from me, 1~2 characters (OC or fanart)
- I will pick a winner from DA, and a winner from tumblr.
- You can enter both but you won't be receiving 2 art works even if you end up winning them both. I will pick another winner from tumblr in that case.
- The quality of the art works may end up experimental!!
- I highly doubt this will happen.. but if there are more than 100 entries, I will pick 1 more winner from whichever has that 100+ entries.
▶Rules for entering◀
- Fav this post by 10th August
- Watchers only sorry...
- If you'd like to enter for the tumblr one, please like this post.

I decided to switch printing places last minute. While the old place was more streamlined and a larger company, I worried about their attention to detail and they couldn’t ensure a few things I really cared about because of their high volume orders. The new place is quite a bit more expensive, but I believe the quality will be higher. (Also silk-coated covers - I love the feel of them!)
Wouldn't have made it without all of your support! I've just been so busy lately - even missed my awesome bday celebration here - but I really a

Interview-should you become a professional artistHi everyone,Interview-should you become a professional artist3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Meiyue has done a very nice interview here : Should You Become a Professional Artist?
She interviewed a few artists and myself about working professionally. The answers are varied as we all have had different experiences, so it's good to see the range of things an artist can go through!
If you are interested in art as a career, it might give you some tips and suggestions.

LOL I got le daily deviation...on my newest picture "I am the Plague". I had to write le journal about it, because everyone does it, so I don't wanna be worse HURRRLOL I got le daily deviation2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It wasn't suggested by anyone (thanks guys, I see how it is :iconthatsgreatplz: LOL) They even wrote something, like, "I am the Plague by *Yaoi-World is an atmospheric piece with good composition and appealingly sketchy line work. " appealingly sketchy line work, that's right baby, tell me moar :iconshewantsyouplz:
Apparently, when you get a DD you are not notified about it. If I wouldn't be vain and wouldn't click this picture to check how much views it got LOL (don't look at me like that, I know you do the same :iconbitchpleaseplz I wouldn't even know that it's there. So you know guys, it's good to check your EVERY. SINGLE. PICTURE. once for a while to see if there isn't any hidden daily deviation there.

Heroes Avatars: clean art (EDIT)A lot later than this should have been, but finally, art for them all:Heroes Avatars: clean art (EDIT)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Figured it was time to switch to a new journal...
While it isn't the proper announcement of the Class-up yet, but it is clean artwork from the website. For the Saiyans at least. Still kinda hard to see the other races on the card.
Couple of notes:
Beat still has an off looking face, but not as bad as before. He lacks pupils in the eyes. Guess this inconsistency will continue forever.Note seems to have less eyebrow definition than I originally thought. She doesn't have pupils in this artwork either.Kabra is blocked even worse than before...Tsumuri doesn't show anything new...Nimu...seems to have facial hair? I thought the avatars were supposed to be younger than that. Kinda strange... Hoping it's a smudge.Froze looks kinda cool, but I'm not sure how much I like the black and white armor combined. Maybe just one or the other? Full body would be nice.
Thanks to Nostal/Treevax, we have clean scans of V-Jump. Her
You Should Be Reading Kamala Khan (aka: Ms Marvel)If you haven’t heard yet, Marvel is branching out quite a bit lately and introducing a bunch of new characters to their roster. One of whom is a Muslim teenage girl who takes up the mantle of Ms Marvel.You Should Be Reading Kamala Khan (aka: Ms Marvel)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Necessary Background Info
If you’re like me and don’t follow 100% what’s going on in DC or Marvel comics right now, some of the events in the story come across unexplained. So here’s a quick little explanation for the main reason of how Kamala gains her powers.
During the end of the “Infinity” storyline, a Terrigen Bomb was detonated in Earth's atmosphere during the Inhumans' fight with Thanos, releasing Terrigen Mist upon the planet. This caused anyone who was a descendant of an “Inhuman” to develop powers of their own.
In Ms Marvel #1 (part of the All-New Marvel NOW! Point One series), we follow the exploits of Kamala Khan, a Pakistani American teenager born and raised in New Jersey
Nintendo’s MiiversePrior to E3 starting up, Nintendo has done something unusual for them... they've given us more information about the Wii-U before their press conference! Specifically they've gone over the online capabilities of the Wii-U and how social networking works with it.Nintendo’s Miiverse3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Nintendo showcased a video of a guy struggling to beat a Zombie boss. He uses the Wii-U Game Pad to look up other users who have had trouble with it. He even posts a note saying he's stuck. His friend sees the note on his mobile device and calls him, but instead he decides to contact another Wii-U user using the built in camera to communicate with video. He talks to an elderly grandpa who tells him how to beat the Zombie boss and instantly he goes right back into the game and succeeds.
Cheesy though it was, it showcased a number of cool features. The first of course being the fact there will be message boards surrounding specific games which you can communicate on, share screen shots, post questions and answers, etc. The second

You all may have heard of the brutal terroristic acts in France – 12 people where murdered by extremists because they stood up for freedom of opinion.
This is a big tragedy which hit human rights all over the world very hard. We are with the bereaved and send theme all our love and compassion.
WHY AM I BRINGING THIS UP IN THIS GROUP?
This is an important issue I desperately want to bring up in this group.
This group stands for tolerance, freedom of opinion, creativity of the mind.
We as lefties sometimes experience intolerance and lack of understanding first hand – right handed people sometimes do not understand,
why we have „so much difficulties“ to adapt ourselves around there right-handed world.
They say we are clumsy, cannot write readable, some even believe (even nowadays) that left-handed people are sinister!

How was the character of Bardock born? (I heard he was born from the TV special, “A Lonely Final Battle”, but…) Also, what sort of attachment do you have to the character Bardock?
Yes, Bardock certainly was born from the anime. However, I don’t remember the particulars of how it went at that time. As for his design, I think I probably just gave some editorial supervision to what was suggested to me by [people from] the anime side of things. I don’t r

I've answered it so many times for other people before, I really don't really know why I haven't done a Q&A entry about it.

WHICH WACOM TABLET SHOULD I BUY?Not to sound snarky, but I thought that little article I wrote about Wacom Tablets would've alleviated some of the confusion new digital artists were having, and answer their burning questions. Unfortunately it has seemed to only caused more questions!
Many of you have asked me which model Wacom you should get versus another. An intuos medium vs large, an intuos vs a cintiq, a cintiq vs a tablet PC, etc. To answer this as truthfully as I can --- I can't honestly tell you which one is better. This is

Thanks everyone! Check back next week for a new contest!
Giveaway #25 is now CLOSED, we'll upload a new journal next friday for #26!
First off, we just wanted to say that our hearts go out to the friends and families of those poor kids (and adults). What happened today was a terrible, terrible thing. I have no idea what went through that person's head that made him want to do that, but our deepest condolences go out to those involved in the shooting.
Please be sure to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you.
And yes, we are back to giving away a free key. This week we will be giving away two free keys to one person. The catch is, you have to give away the second key to someone else! A friend, a family member, etc. Because it's the holidays and giving is a wonderful thing
Please be sure to say who you're going to give the second key to! If you post your comment and forgot to post who the second one is going to
Binary HatredRemember when I was posting some journals about artist taboos and I had a couple more to talk about? Here's one of them, though it doesn't just relate to artists it's just kinda an all around taboo I wish would end.Binary Hatred2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Perceived Rivalry Hatred
Basically it works like this: You say you dislike something and immediately get attacked by people who either defend the thing you said you disliked, or accuse you of being a supporter of it's supposed rival (whether this has any basis in reality or not). It also works on things you like, things you're indifferent to, or anything really. EVERYTHING has a supposed default rival. Movies, TV, Video Games, Ideologies, Words, Phrases, etc. Everything.
Say you're an atheist? Automatically means you hate all Christians.
Say you like the X-Box 360? Automatically means you hate Sony.
Say you like the PS3? Automatically means you hate Microsoft.
You liked a Marvel movie? Guys you hate the DC stuff.
You like Chocolate Ice Creme? Fuck you and your vanilla bias!

Heroes JM3 Incoming (Female SS3s)JM3 information is starting to surface for Dragon Ball Heroes. As expected, the Avatars are getting new clothes as part of their second "Class-up" (and transformations for the Saiyans). This upcoming set will be a landmark moment for the franchise, holding the special revelation that is the first official Super Saiyan 3 female design. other than that, the other characters are getting new outfits that I'll need to work in as well, and meaning another transformation for the Raiokutian (Freeza Clan) characters in my project too.Heroes JM3 Incoming (Female SS3s)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Final note, there is another silhouette below the new avatar designs. Not exactly sure who this is, but the text claims them to be a boss character. The design looks very similar to Liu Xing Long's Otohime form, but she was already utilized in JM1. So, I'm not exactly sure what is going on. Maybe she's getting a new form? Maybe it's a new character? Have to wait and see.
