sticker/print shop :DHallooo, sorry for spamming again.
I just made a RedBubble account after trying out a handful of different store sites.
I have to stop selling prints directly for a few months so this is my temporary replacement.
They make stickers which is kinda nifty 8) cause who doesn't like stickers??! (Ok besides mothers with small children who stick them all over the walls.) I ordered a few so I can see the quality for myself, but they haven't arrived yet.
Prints/posters are available too. Til now I've never sold big ones online before due to shipping hassles Basically all my usual convention merch and some additional Parashi images are there. (Still being uploaded, slowly.)
Unfortunately the prices are a bit higher than my standard convention prices since RB takes a big chunk of it , however it does auto-discou

It's really choppy and suuuuuper scribbly because I took like 30 seconds to draw each frame. Please fill in the gaps and gloss over the art with your wonderful imagination! I made it in Windows Movie Maker which is an absolutely evil program =o=
I'll try to fix up the ugly pictures and maybe add some color when I have time, and reupload another version later :b (don't know when though.) For now feel free to watch this one and laugh at it huhuhu

How to be a good subject for your photographer!You should try to:How to be a good subject for your photographer!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
- Instantly listens to quick prompts / direction.
- Be open to any critique mid or after shoots!
- Have a decent understanding of what the photographer is looking at (light/framing)
- Pose naturally and (if in Cosplay) act in character .
- Be confident for the duration of the shoot.
- Avoid being self concious.
- Be aware of the direction of light (to avoid unflattering shadows, etc)
- Loosen up! Literally. Shake your limbs and relax your muscles from time to time.
- Avoid squinting. If the sun is too bright you will naturally squint. Close your eyes and ask the photographer to do a count down.
- Throw ideas at your photographer. Be creative.
So there you go.. If you want to make life incredibly easy for your photographer try and nail the above points.
While I'm shooting I need 100% trust from my subject. I also can't have anyone disagreeing with my requests however odd they are (unless I ask em to do something dangerous, lol).
This completely breaks my creative flow

Edit: here are the answers : ) sometimes I gave it more thought/shortened to make more sense than in comments. Sometimes I changed the questions and cut my blabbery to make a concise FAQ. Sorry for that!
1. What program do you use?
It's been Painttool SAI for everything recently. I used Artrage and Photoshop before.
2. What brushes/brush settings do you use?
3. How long does it take to draw single illustration?
I should be answering this question under every deviation, I know, but I suck at artist's comments and usually it's just hard to tell O.o for paintings it's 8-10hrs for not-so-detailed rendition, and 20+ for fully rendered illustration. For Example:

2014 Yaya Han Calendar - it's here!I thought now would be a good time to make the calendar available to the public since they were shipped out to me yesterday! After the successful trial run of last year's calendar, I wanted to make an even better cosplay calendar for 2014!2014 Yaya Han Calendar - it's here!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
To summarize: The 2014 Limited Edition Yaya Han Calendar features 12 months of new cosplay images printed on glossy 11x17 paper, which flips open to a 11x24 calendar. Out of the 12 monthly images, only 2 have been released before, all others are brand new and shot exclusively for the calendar. None of the images will be available as a print or poster, you will only be able to see them in the calendar.
FREE shipping within USA and Canada, $10 shipping everywhere else! It is again $24.99, just like last year, and will be signed and personalized by me! I'll post some teaser pics soon but you get a great idea of the calendar's look from the cover and back cover alre

Once in a while people will ask me what kind of brush that I used in photoshop. I kept meaning to make this kind of post so I could explain it better. So if you guys have anymore question about photoshop I will be glad to answer it and make another Q&A post.
1. WHAT TYPE OF BRUSH DO YOU USE, IS IT BASIC BRUSH OR A CHALK TYPE BRUSH?
+ Ink Brush: http://static.squarespace.com/static/506a168ce4b00f5f2f4b48ad/t/509f0175e4b05a733d1030bc/1352597878435/brushes_ink.JPG The first brush I used is Hard Round brush and I started with 9 Pixels in size. Make sure under the Window> Brushes> Shape Dynamics> Size Jitter's Control is under Pen Pressure. This brush is useful for inking and blocking basic colors.
+ Sketching/Blending Brush: http://static.squarespace.com/static/506a168ce4b00f5f2f4b48ad/t/509f0296e4b039333cb4aa69/1352598166968/brushes_blend.JPG

Wooow, this is probably the worst-run convention ever.
Let me start with the good stuff first, since the bad things will be a far longer list :<
As usual, the people are WONDERFUL T-T!!
It's always great to see familiar people from previous years/other cons (though I suck at remembering names, sorrrry) and meet/talk to new people. Some people kept coming back and buying a little more each time, it was really nice ;-;
Also a random girl hugged me and some guys asked to take photos together (which was a little awkward lolll).
:iconno-wei: gave me a GORGEOUS drawing of Katsura & Eli reading Parashi comics!! It's soo sweeetttt I kept taking it out and looking at it every hour or so, all weekend T_T I LOVE IT SO MUCH, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
All in all everyone was super nice and I got so many compliments >o

Bayonetta 2 Concept Arts******Concept Arts of 'Bayonetta 2' by Mari Shimazaki*****Bayonetta 2 Concept Arts2 months ago in Personal More Like This
''First, let’s talk about Bayonetta, the “modern witch”, and this game’s main character. Those who played the previous title are likely to notice that her trademark hairstyle has been given a complete makeover. After talking with Hashimoto and Kamiya, the three of us came to the conclusion Bayonetta’s not the kind of girl who’d show up with the same hairstyle for her sequel. A girl can be known to change her hairstyle depending on her mood, so I guess Bayonetta was in the mood for something short. Still, knowing her, there’s no telling when she’ll decide to change it again.
Bayonetta’s overall theme this time is “Solid.”
"She’s still wearing black, and I think her shorter hair gives her a generally more masculine look. While her design in the last game focused on curves, this time we see more straight lines. All of her accessories follow this, exc
