Here it is...
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>>)

Fashion 101: Working with ModelsWelcome to the first edition of Fashion 101, a series of articles revolving around the art, business, and nuances of fashion photography brought to you by Fashion-Show. While some topics may be relevant only to the fashion industry, many of these articles can apply to multiple genres and art mediums, such as today's topic. As is customary with most of my articles, there will be a giveaway and discussion at the end!Fashion 101: Working with Models7 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What is a Model?
Simply put, a model is a person employed for the purpose of posing for an artist. This can be for a painter, sculptor, animator, photographer, etc. For the sake of this article, we will be looking at models for photography. We will also be further defining a model as someone who has agreed to pose or act for your photography project, versus a brief subject such as a person on the street.
Why Work With a Model?
A model brings a lot to the table for a photographer, particularly when it comes to b
Random Art Raffle (closed)Hi everyone!Random Art Raffle (closed)8 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.

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!)

DashCon - How not to do a conventionIt seems like every week there’s a new convention going on, and this was no different. DashCon (purportedly the largest gathering of tumblr uses to date), was happening this weekend and... well... it fell apart in many gloriously horrible ways.DashCon - How not to do a convention9 months ago in Personal More Like This
First there were accusations of scamming, as the convention owners crowd-sourced $17,000 to secure the venue (which should’ve been done MONTHS in advance). All attempts to contact the hotel have resulted in the hotel saying there was no need to raise that money and that they never received any of it.
Then there were the cancelations. The Welcome to Nightvale people were flown in, but then told they weren’t going to be paid till AFTER they performed for everyone (which is already suspicious) and also told they weren’t getting reimberesed for the hotel, flight, food, etc. So sadly WTNV had to cancel at the last minute, resulting in the convention owners refunding patrons with “an extra hour in the ball pit.” The

10 Years of ControversyOver the past couple days I’ve had a number of people write me comments basically saying “You’re becoming too preachy, you’ve lost a fan.” And outside the silliness of publicly mic-dropping like that, it got me wondering... what?10 Years of Controversy1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Ya see, It’s always surprises me when someone says that I’m becoming too preachy, when in fact I’ve been preachy from the beginning. Don’t believe me? Take a look below!
This is not a complete list by any stretch of the imagination, but these are essentially THE MOST controversial comics and illustrations I’ve ever done in the past 10 years.

So that's a little chaotic lol I don't have my visa for China yet or anything
It looks like in the current state of things, I'll be flying into Hong Kong Monday night and hanging out for a couple days there while my visa is processed. I'll be playing in a club in Chengdu for the next 3 months, and then I'll move to Shenzhen, where I'll be playing at a 5-star hotel for the following 4 months. So...lots of stuff happening! lol
I'll do my best to keep you guys posted with all that happens (and take some pics too, eh??). This is definitely going to be an exciting time, and hopefully this will put me out on the international stage! So it might get me traveling to other places too; it'd be awesome to meet up with more of you deviants as I go!

The latest details for the Xbox One show that pretty much every aspect of gaming culture that we hate has been incorporated into it. Needing to check in every 24 hours to make sure you've legally bought a game? Check. Not able to bring games over to a friend's house unless your friend ALSO buys the game? Check. Forcing game stores to sign an agreement to pay Microsoft a large percentage of the used sale fee? Check. More motion controls? Check. Inability to let independent-developers make games on their system? Check. Not backwards compatible? Check. Stronger emphasis on watching TV and movies than playing games? Check. Seriously, this is like a check list of all the worse possible things to include in a gaming console.
