Road to Charasuke - Drama CD - Full TranslationHello everyone! I don't know if someone already did a translation but since I got this request from HinataHyuUchiha before... she said if I can translate the whole Drama CD of Road to Charasuke. Here it is! I finally got all tracks and I got time earlier so I did it. I wanted to translate it for everyone anyways! Please take note though that I couldn't fully grasp some of the words. But don't worry, I've studied Japanese in a formal school in Japan so I could, more or less, understood what they were talking about. I guarantee you that this is correct translation!Road to Charasuke - Drama CD - Full Translation1 year ago in Personal More Like This

XXXX GIVEAWAY CLOSED XXXX :iconkiwikku:XXXX GIVEAWAY CLOSED XXXX5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I think now's a great time to start the giveaways back up again- first with small ones, but building up to bigger and better ones in the future! It's always fun to give back to the people who gave me so much..
Welcome to the first in a series of weekly giveaways by Kiwikku / Moomin-Man
These giveaways are FREE to join and require no points to enter!- lotteries are not allowed on dA.
However, this giveaway is very special- and very sad.
A few weeks ago, I heard about the touching story of whisperwings, which inspired me to create a brand new arts endowment to help get smaller artists known- please read the full story here:
And there's more.
I've created a new group to give more people a boost-
This group's purpose is simple: Great artists, some with amazing art- don't get noticed because they have little to no watchers. I want to change that. And you can help. How?

Six Ways to Earn More CommissionsIf youre serious about earning an income with your art, then you have to be serious about marketing yourself. If youre like me, you hate selling you dont like rejection, it makes you nervous and you think youre no good at it. Thats why were artists and not salesmen. Fortunately marketing yourself is kind of an art form. Although I dont have all the answers, Id like to share a little of what Ive learned about the art of marketing ourselves.Six Ways to Earn More Commissions3 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Need to come up with an outfit for a hike for Irida.
-Attire should be convenient and practical, but also original and beautiful.
-No skirts or dresses.
-Shoes should not have a high heel. Try to do without them.
-This may not be the typical outfit for camping for winx. Irida is part of a club that is configured in a more realistic and fantasy.
- You can draw from scratch and on the mannequin.
-If your art will be some kind of idea, and not just the outfit, then this will give you bonus points.
Getting started with Still LifeStill Life Photography doesn't have to be difficult to achieve. There are lots of ways of getting inspired to start with the techniques that help to create still life images and this article highlights just a few of them. There are the traditional still life captures, such as Danbo (the little box man), fruit and cookies! There are also ways of getting creative and thinking outside of the box. It's perfectly okay to replicate ideas that are already out there, but why not try something new aswell?Getting started with Still Life5 months ago in Art Features More Like This
One of the most easy things that I find with Still Life Photography, is the set up and pressing of the capture button! Actually coming up with the ideas in the first place is the tricky part, and that's when I start to look at what's around me. The beauty with still life photography is that you don't have to go trudging through snow to capture an image, or wading through flood waters. It's not journalistic, it rarely includes nature unless you count cut flo
Project Educate: See the light and remember itProject Educate: See the light and remember it1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
See the light and remember it
Lighting in photography is a living, changing art. One of the most important abilities of a photographer is to see light and to remember it. Light is the most changing element in our daily life. We move among solid objects and among people who do not change drastically during a day or a week. But visually the appearance of our environment and of people around us may change from one hour to the next due to the time of day, the weather, or the particular source of light. Photographers are aware of these changes and store in their memory the impact different types of light have on our emotions and our subconscious. For a photographer, watching the light becomes second nature.
Some of the photographer's palette of tools:
-The angle of light
-Quality (hard or soft)

Premium Content: Parts I and II
Part 1: Jon takes the oil painting image into Photoshop and then explains his "workspace" he has developed inside Photoshop and Painter. Making selection masks in Photoshop is important to Jon, and saving those selections so he can use them later is part of his usual routine. By the way......every keystroke Jon makes is displayed onscreen, as well as zoomed-in close-ups of every Menu selection. State of the art screen capture technology! You will never need to squint at the screen and wonder what Jon is doing with the software!

Understanding your camera's exposure settingsIn this post I’ll be discussing Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO. The three camera settings that control “exposure” – the brightness of your photo.Understanding your camera's exposure settings4 months ago in Personal More Like This
There are three settings on your camera that control exposure: Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO.
The Aperture is the thing that opens when you press the shutter button on your camera. The ‘aperture setting’ determines how big the opening will be. It's measured in f-stops. The smaller the f-stop number the larger the opening, and hence the more light that gets in.
The Shutter Speed determines how long the aperture stays open. Shutter speed is measured in fractions of a second. The faster the shutter, the less light that gets in.
The ISO setting determines the camera’s sensitivity to light. Think of it as a light amplifier. The higher the ISO, the brighter the image.
In most cases you will want fast shutter speeds (to eliminate blur), low ISO (to reduce noise), and an appropriate aperture setting to g

Free Feng Zhu Tutorials!!!!!!Hey gang!Free Feng Zhu Tutorials!!!!!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So like the Joe Mad journal I had earlier. I was continuing my inspiration search, and came across Feng's site in which I hadn't seen in years. Feng is one of the top concept artists in the industry. He has worked on all the major movies, and now has even started his own school! The coolest thing about Feng is he really cares about up and coming artists, and proves it providing a ton of free tutorials! Covering everything from what your portfolio should look like to lighting, and painting tips! I suggest everyone stop off and take a look at what he has to offer! The dude is AMAZING!!

Giovanni- Pues ya que...
610vann1- Muchos te han preguntado de donde sacas tanta imaginación para tus historias, La verdad me gustaría saberlo.
Giovanni- Te voy a ser sincero, no lo sé, supongo que en cierto modo es más por la inspiración que tengas que por la imaginación, cualquier historia es buena, no importa quienes sean los personajes, o de que trate, o de quien sea escrita, simplemente tienes que poner corazón a la historia, y cuando suceda eso, te puedo presumir que se escribe sola, también aprovecho para decir que estoy loco, tal vez también sea por eso.
