Interview-should you become a professional artistHi everyone,Interview-should you become a professional artist2 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.
Random Art Raffle (closed)Hi everyone!Random Art Raffle (closed)7 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

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>>)
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.)
Making the sweet sause:
Mix water, sugar, and soysauce in a pan and put it on medium heat. Mix the water and katakuriko starch in a cup an

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?

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 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)11 months 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

Still Life Food Photography Contest
Still life photography usually involves a set up - planning and careful execution of a shot. Food photography in particular takes a lot of preparation and the time to make a dish or an item of food aesthetically pleasing. So I thought it was about time we had a contest involving all elements! Your challenge is to create a brand shiny new Still Life Photography piece that features Food. Now the catch is you must be creative with the food. Entries will be considered carefully and if you are taking photos of food that someone else has made, then you need to step up the mark and make it as unique as possible. If you made the creation yourself, give us a brief idea in the description of how. Utilize the descriptions of your artwork to tell us about your photography!
Start Date: Monday 14th May
