Plated DessertsPlating can be such an underrated art form at times. I've often heard it dismissed as 'boring', 'sterile' and criticised for all looking the same. Maybe we just have a tendency to lust after the rustic, messy desserts. Maybe we like to tear down what is seen as a hoity-toity way of presenting food. Or maybe we just don't see the skill and technique that goes into plating.Plated Desserts2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Skillful plating up of food requires a good eye, a steady hand and a flair for design. Careful consideration goes into everything from which way the dish is offset, to the type of garnishes on it, to the type of plate it is presented on. It, in turn, necessitates learning a whole host of other skills and techniques to create the garnishes that adorn the dish.
These deviants show off their plating skills with a host of delicious desserts.

Nom Nom #52 FudgeHeaded created by TouchedDNom Nom #52 Fudge2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Fudge! Probably one of the most simplest things ever - Milk, Butter and Sugar - mixed to a soft 'fudge' like consistency and often flavoured with other weird and wonderful things. Fudge is popular in the UK especially, as a tourist treat. Those little tourist shops that proclaim home made ice cream also often sell home made fudge! It's also popular at fayres too. Here's an interesting trivia note...
"The Hot Fudge Sundae was supposedly created in 1906 at C.C. Browns, a new ice cream parlor on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles."

Long a staple food in France, there is actually some debate over where the Croissant originated from. The Kipferl, from Austria, was said to be the first real version of what is commonly known now as a Croissant. The popular story is that it was created in Hungary...so who really knows! Some like them hot, some like them cold - some like them with jam and some like them with random things like cheese and ham!

Give Peas a chance! This week the focus is on Peas! Here's a bit of background information for you... The earliest archaeological finds of peas date from the neolithic era of current Syria, Turkey and Jordan. The annual 'Peasenhall Pea Festival' in Suffolk, England, attracts hundreds of (weird) visitors every year. It includes events such as pea shooting, the World Pea Podding Championships and National Pea Eating Competition. What does a pea follower call themselves? I'll leave that to your imagination!

Sushi Dog Reference Sheet CommissionsEDIT:: had to resubmit to the sushi dog group since I took it out to try and consolidate things (didn't work! D: ) anyhow, these are sort of forever open, all the same rules and stuff applies. If you're interested in other types of commissions or non soosh refs, you can check out my profile page for links to those journals! ♥Sushi Dog Reference Sheet Commissions6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Hello! Some of you may have already seen the soosh refs I've made for all the sooshes I own/co-own. If not, here's the links:
I'm opening commissions to make ref sheets with the same bases for your sooshes!
Each one costs $4 or 400 points. For a very complex soosh, it is $1 more ($5 total)
Triptychs are $10 because I do each pup a separately (see above examples)
here's a couple examples of what I consider to be a "complex" soosh:
If you don't know if your soosh would be considered complex, just ask!

Photomanip: Challenges and possible solutionsHi everyone,Photomanip: Challenges and possible solutions2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I am still on hiatus because my 18-hour exam is just a week and a half away. However, I had a few moments, so I wanted to tell you about the results of the photomanipulation community meeting we had the other week.
First, let me say that I am extremely grateful to those of you who came. Everyone had a positive, constructive attitude, and I really think we were able to make good segue into a community that will acknowledge everyone's talents.
Here are some themes that came up and the solutions we decided to create for them.
Problem: People are concerned about what stock is and is not allowed to be used. They are also concerned about being able to copyright their own work and keep people from stealing or copying them.
Solution: I am not sure there is a solution for this one that will be satisfactory to all people, as this is kind-of a risk you take when you post your work online-- especially if you

Cosplay Tutorial: Molding and casting your piecesThis tutorial is based on how to use Smooth-on's Oomoo- and Smooth-cast series materials for cosplay purposes. There is little special too about using fiberglass instead of smooth-cast. Hope you enjoy!Cosplay Tutorial: Molding and casting your pieces2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok. Lets get started!
"I need five identically same looking parts like in that center of the picture for my cosplay but making them one by one would take LOTS of time. What to do?"
If you have the right materials then the answer is simple: "Make one sharp prototype of that piece then mold it and cast it."
Here are the materials you need:
- Modelling paste for making the prototype (or what ever material you like. It won't affect to the final product)
- Smooth-On's Oomoo 25 or 30 for making the mold (mold max 20-40 works too but it' need more skill to use. So i recommend Oomoo)
- Smooth-On's Smoothcast series for casting (i recommend smooth-cast 320 because it is easy to paint with spray paint)
(Smooth-On got lot of resellers in few countries. Here in Finland is Silcom.fi who sells their p

Good Websites for Cosplay WigsAt a shoot, my friends and I were talking about how I am able to find good cheap wigs. This is a list of all of my Mia-approved wig sites.Good Websites for Cosplay Wigs5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Angella1024 on eBay
This store has cheap wigs with free shipping. Another plus is that you can buy clip attachments in different lengths and colors separately. There are so many different colors, textures, and lengths.
Un-styled Sakura Wigs
Slightly more expensive than Angella1024's store on eBay but the colors are really pretty. Even their wig heads are pretty. I plan to use this site for styling my ARiA wig. There are only two optons here so it is a good choice if you want to style your own wig. This site also has pre-styled wigs that are pretty pricey. If you have enough money buy their pre-styled Sakura wig.
