Tutorial: Basic Cosplay Make-upBasic Information:Tutorial: Basic Cosplay Make-up2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As said before: English is not my native language. I'm sorry for every mistake I made while writing. I'm just showing you what works for me. This is a "you can" tutorial and not "you must". I hope this gives you a basic idea on how I do it and helps you as well. I will not show you any brands of make-up I work with since they are different from country to country. I'm not a dermatologist or a professional make-up artist, so I can't give you tips for "problem skin" cases like acne and so on. Please consult a doctor and let them give you tips for what's best to use before buying something randomly
If you don't know what make-up to use out of the hilarious amount of available products in stores ask a vendor in the store of your choice. They will help you.
This tutorial will be the base for every upcoming make-up related tutorial I will post in the future.
First of all I clean my skin and apply vanishing crème. It's always good to do so

I've become a big fan of appliqués in the past 5 years.
In this tutorial I want to show you what you can accomplish with this simple sewing technique.
Don't be surprised if I go through the steps quickly. In the lower tutorials everything has been described.

Hetalia ProjectTitle: America-san no Gakuseijidai (America's Student Life)Hetalia Project2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
While practicing Wonder Girls' "Like This" dance, this idea came out :3 since Gakuen Hetalia is usually written in letters (fanfictions), I'll VISUALIZE it by MY "interactive way" XDD In this project, Italy isn't the main character but America who just transferred to this school. He completely don't know who are the students in that school, you'll know why This project will be like ANIME, like Episode 1 or blah blah blah~ I don't know how long this project will last because I have tons of ideas I'll put in this and just to let you know, what I mean of this project is like a "FAN PROJECT" I'll not use any money for this :3 what I'll use is:
-Internet (of course ._.)
-My brain which is full of lame fantasies XDD
that's all XDDD You might some spot of sort hint of boy love because you know... I'm a yaoi fangirl XD not ashamed to tell it :3 It's our school break these days so I think I'll write the "Outlines" first :3

Since I don't edit models much anymore nor do I have motivation to, however I would enjoy two of my characters to be in MMD format, I'm just going to hold a contest for whoever can edit them / model them the best wins, haha.
There will be two winners, since I want two characters. Fair enough right?
You can enter for both characters, you can win for both characters if they're that good, so go for it. c:
These are the characters:

What she needs to have: She absolutely NEEDS her hoodie design. Her hoodie design has push versions of her horns and her ears (her ears are her speakers, yk for mikus mic and speakers, those are hers.) She doesn't NEED a slider for her hoodie to go over her head, but if you add it , it will earn you a LOT of points.

FAQ: FFXIII-2 Starseeker weaponEdit: Many of you asked for a transformation vid. So, I made this video clip. Enjoy!FAQ: FFXIII-2 Starseeker weapon2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In my former journal I asked if you would like for me to explain how my Starseeker weapon was made. Since there were quite some people that would like me to do so, I decided to make this FAQ journal. So, I hope I'l answer some questions you might have about this curious weapon and I hope I can explain it well enough for you all to understand.
Note that I made the weapon a couple of months ago and I don't remember everything very clear of the making of it. But, I'll do my best.
So, first things first: The Starseeker
Serah's weapon is quite the interesting one. This because it's a transformable one just like her sister's, Lightning. Nonetheless, it's a transformable one from bow to blade, which original form is none other than the cute moogle companion, Mog.
Of course, Final Fantasy is all about 'Fantasy', so making an exact workin

US Government denies existance of Mermaids>>>>http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-18692830US Government denies existance of Mermaids2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Really? I mean; really?
The US National Ocean Service had to make a statement that Mermaids do not in fact exist, after they were bombarded by enquiries regarding them in the wake of a programme aired by the Discovery Channel.
"Mermaids: The Body Found" was a work of fiction but was mistaken by a number of people to be a documentary.
I'm guessing they're the same people for whom warnings are printed on Harry Potter broomsticks, reading "Caution: Does not actually fly".......
tumblr Safety Followup4chan v tumblrtumblr Safety Followup1 week ago in Personal More Like This
I mentioned it briefly yesterday, and thanks to some people filling in the blanks I didn’t have at the time I feel the need to update this with more information for everyone’s sake.
Apparently what happened is that a couple feminists on tumblr (most sources only mentioning on average 4 people) tried to start a “let’s take down 4chan” campaign. 4chan (the source of some of the lowliest, filthiest, scummiest people on the planet), didn’t like that. So they’ve retaliated with a “take down tumblr” campaign. Please bear in mind that there is no real evidence to support this and it might all just be 4chan stirring up shit themselves for the lulz.
4chan users created multiple accounts and then proceeded to spam the popular tumblr tags with excessive amounts of gore, porn, child pornography, and have been taking “selfie” images of underage tumblr users and photoshop them into porn. They've also
The Three problems with how we learn art: pt.3I've been thinking about how and why we learn to draw for a few years now. I started self-analazing my own drawing and character design thought process when I began writing my first art instruction book, "Creating Characters with Personality". It was harder than I thought to verbalize how I've learned and how I process drawing. This has led me to start looking back at my artistic life and how I learned art. What made me learn the most? What drove me to draw and stick with it? What led to others I knew as a child to stop drawing? I think I'm ready to present some of those thoughts here on DA and hear what you think. This is part 2 of three in a series. I'm not sure where this is leading, but step one is my establishing an online art instruction school called Taught ByA PRO (http://www.taughtbyapro.com) that will (in phase one) concenThe Three problems with how we learn art: pt.37 months ago in Personal More Like This

Anyone else out there playing this? Very neat game. Very.. mixed reviews about it across the nets, but hey, I'm having fun either way.
It's an open world.. actiony.. RPG-y.. exploration.. concoction. I'm not sure how else to put it. It's a pretty wild blend of all sorts of elements I've seen in games like Monster Hunter, Skyrim, Dark Souls and even Shadow of the Colossus. Aaaand I love all those games.
I don't mind telling you, I'm getting myself murdered left and right, and I seem to have lost my direction very.. very early on in the game. Shortly after a dragon plucked out my heart and ate it, I found myself protecting a cow on the way to a grand capital city i

5 Weird Things About Me...Hey, everyone else is doing it, and I'm no hipster.5 Weird Things About Me...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1. I'm afflicted with a moderate case of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder-induced sociopathy.
2. Not one inch of skin is visible when I'm observed from the outside.
3. I've only known my best friend for around 7 months, but I value her more than my own life and those of the people who are responsible for me being alive today.
4. I shed more tears over the climax of The Crooked Man than I did over my brother's death.
5. In spite of my sadistic and vengeful nature, I wouldn't wish true, emotional suffering on my very worst enemies.

I felt the need to create this news article for the benefit of every artist on deviantArt who intends to make money from their talent.
When one visits the deviantArt 'Employment Opportunities' forum, they should be shocked at what they find. Startling low prices abound. These are both offered by the clients, as well as quoted by the artists. The sad truth is most people aren't shocked at all. The perceived consensus is that it's business as usual. A lower price means an increased likelihood that a client will do business with you, right? In some ways yes, but not at thi

If you are able to understand German you can go to my Animexx weblog and read it there :3 Unfortunately dA doesn't support embedding my pics into the text so I had to put them directly over/under the text. Sorry for that!
I'm just showing you what works for me, so this is a "you can try this" and not a "this is the only way you can do it".
As you might know wigs are made out of plastic fibers. Plastic is a heat bendable material, so this is the essence of the both methods I will show you. Styling your wig with heat will also work for curling it, making spikes and so on. Please be careful whenev
