You require the following ingredients:
1 1/3 cup joshinko (rice flour. Or you can get rice flour and grind it, but it must be ground just enough so it's as a flour. Any wheat grinder would work well. Just use the electronic one. I did it by hand and it hurts>>)
Making the rice dumplings:
Put rice flour in a bowl and add warm water. Knead the dough well (or just use a metal spoon if you want to). Make small round dumplings (the size of rubber balls). Place the dumplings in a (vegetable) steamer and steam them on high heat for 10 min. Cool the dumplings and skewer them in bamboo sticks. (3-4 dumplings each stick.)

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.

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.

why we have „so much difficulties“ to adapt ourselves around there right-handed world.

As you know, Akira Toriyama-sensei, the father of Dragon Ball, oversaw the manga in this volume, and so naturally, he answered the questions of Naho Ooishi-sensei, who is also a super-fan of Dragon Ball!! Don’t miss it!
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

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)2 years 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.

Warm Bodies ...Warm Bodies ...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Watch it. Seriously.
I just got back from the cinemas, where I caught Warm Bodies with my bestie from LASALLE. I know what you're thinking, that the movie didn't look that great. Yet another zombie movie amongst the throngs of supernatural the media flings at us, yet another teenage romance to appeal to every young adult with a pulse. And I will be the first to admit that when I first heard the outline of the story - a cute young man who just happens to be undead falls in love with a young girl at first sight - I was skeptical. I assumed it would become a rehash of Twilight, and I just got over the nausea of seeing those posters cluttering all the billboards.
However, after trawling through the trailers and finding them appealing and funny, I decided that the movie was worth a shot. It advertises itself as a quirky, humorous take on zombies, throwing in a mix of teenage romance

Heroes Avatars: clean art (EDIT)A lot later than this should have been, but finally, art for them all:Heroes Avatars: clean art (EDIT)2 years 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.

Best place on the web?I wanted to share a few facts about a company that is very dear to my heart:Best place on the web?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been my favourite place on the web for about seven years now. It also has some impressive little-known stats - it's the sixth biggest social network in the world. It has 28 million users. It set the standard for the user icon, and incorporated the first 'like' button. It was also, apparently, the first social network, 12 years ago.
I love it because I find it to be a wonderfully positive environment - way less haters than pretty much any site I ever invested any time in. It's supportive of creators, whatever level they are at. It encourages diversity, and doesn't judge it's users, no matter what they are into (pretty much!), writers, artists and photographers all.
It also, many people don't know, sponsored artist's alley at SDCC, keeping it in the main hall, laying down a soft carpet to spare feet, and providing padded chairs. It sponsored Tr!ckster, and the Spectrum convention. It genuinely - and I mean

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
