SOPA 2013I am getting many SOPA 2013 submitted journals, however, it is still a rule that this group will not accept personal journals. So I created this journal to inform you all about SOPA 2013.SOPA 20132 years ago in Personal More Like This
This will make you a felon and be sent to jail for copyright because you uploaded copyright material on to YouTube or any other social media.
♦ So to make this simple, you will be a felon for:
› Making fanart
› Covering a song
› Writing fanfiction
› Let's Plays
› A song playing in the background in a video
And from what am hearing, SOPA is not just for US citizens, but anyone who has internet access.
Here is a petition to stop SOPA: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/stop-sopa-2013/LMzMVrQF

Advice on Creating (just stuff that's helped me)First of all, I am not a professional. I have received no special art or writing training outside of basic Elementary to High School classes. I am not what I would consider "qualified" to give advice on either of these topics, but I'm still going to. At the end of the day, what's helped me most to grow and learn when it comes to art and writing, is the advice I've heard from other writers and artist.Advice on Creating (just stuff that's helped me)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I know I get a little preachy sometimes with some of you and spew my random bits of advice all the time which I'm sure can get kind of annoying, for that I'm sorry. I really don't try to sound like a know it all, I'm definitely not, but I just remember when I was younger (even still now) and I was having trouble writing or drawing things and I didn't have the advice I have now. I struggled for years until I started paying more attention to some of the online artists and writers that I enjoyed and started realizing that they knew things that I hadn't realized. Some times you just need someo

Now, again as always, remember if you want to download the song, click on the mp3 link I gave you, scroll down and just click on the words -MP3 を抽出- below the graph stating 'streaming and extracting.' Also, the videos I posted would sometimes be copyrighted. DO NOT FEAR. If you only want to hear the song, go to my mp3 link I gave you and just press the play button below the picture ^^
In the rankings, I would predict which of the newest and hottest songs would enter the next week's rankings, so if you see 'PREDICTED' in front, it means I've mentioned it in my last journal and it has entered the rankings ^^
HAVE FUN!!!! ^^
A song has to get a minumum of 14,000 views to enter the rankings.

On misunderstandings about cosplayThis is a topic I've been meaning to talk about for quite a while now. I finally got the motivation to when Sarah sorairo-days emailed me to share my thoughts on what cosplay means to me, and what I feel it really means to be a cosplayer despite all the misconceptions about the hobby. It's for this article on Random Nerds, in which Sarah shares her side of it as well.On misunderstandings about cosplay3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years, I've witnessed how cosplayers are constantly looked down upon, which makes people apprehensive towards it. It's such a shame because it's a wonderful and rewarding hobby which brings people together. And in general, I am firmly against making anyone feel bad about doing something they want to do.
I am aware that the concept of cosplay might be too much for some individuals, but our intention definitely isn't to get all up in everyone's faces and say everyone should cosplay or whatever. We just want to promote a

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 pieces3 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

Anyway, the following is a true story about myself and a friend from school.
Back in Middle school I was the shy quiet girl no one ever talked to. I had no real close friends and was pretty lonely.
One day I decided to switch to a new table at lunch, the group at my previous table was kind of loud and annoying. There was a group of girls at the new table, I didn't really talk to them, but I noticed one of them was pretty quiet. She always packed her lunch, like me, so when the

Ash had Gary Oak, Goku had Vegeta, Naruto had Sasuke. Do you believe that having a rival can help you improve in whatever you do? I do. I remember back in High School I got lots of praises from my classmates for being the greatest at drawing, I liked to draw in my diaries and homeworks alot Which explains why my marks were soooo FREAKIN TERRIBLE!. And there was a friend (I used the term very loosely) who would always try to find ways to make people feel like crap, this time it was no exception, he figured out what I liked and stabbed that piece of pure innocent heart with a sharp poisonous knife, he told me my drawings is poo compared to this other guy our year, I have never seen that guy's artworks before so my friend went as far as to sneak into the library storage room where everyone left their bags at, opened up the guy's bag an

Meet Fan-Artist of February 2013!
Tell us about yourself and you only been here for a whole year now, what is your biggest (and proudest) accomplishment? Like a time when you felt like you were right on top of the world
I’ve been drawing since I was little. I kept it as a hobby and draw stuff I like from time to time. Since I love Dragonball, basketball, I started drawing a lot sketches related to these subjects with traditional medium and kept it up for years. At first I just look at other artist's work to get inspired, now I really like the deviantART community and appreciate what I can learn from the community.
Well, I never felt like on top of the world^^, but I guess the biggest accomplishment for me is when others told me that I inspire and motivate them to become better.

i have always been a huge fan of art books. in fact i would say that 99 percent of my bookshelves are filled with art books ranging from animation to fashion design and everything visual in between. it was partly why i am so excited to have produced my own book, Walking Your Octopus. one of my goals with this project was to create an art book that was also an art object and this vision guided every aspect of the book's production. as we all know ebooks are becoming more and more popular and i struggled with how my book which was a celebration of all things analog might fit into the digital space. fortunately my very creative friend eric, had the solution...Aereoscope.

well let's start with the raw armor parts, completely unpainted.
I used WOBLAS FINEST ART as my material. It's a thermoplastic material with a mix out of plastic and wood. It's close to Wonderflex, but thicker, more durable and it's easier to make round shapes l shoulders, knees and chest plates. You can also melt the material together and use it as thermoplastic modeling clay!
This is my VERY first armor and even a bloody begin
