Fisheye Placebo Cosplay DerpsI had the honor of derping with these hilarious Fisheye Placebo cosplayers at Sakura-con!
Good times. Good times.
See you guys again at Fanime! ♥
Frey, Alex, and Vance cosplayed by Shotalicious, Sugarlat, Liarino. I'm cameoing as rabbit ear fingers.
And then I drew them XD
Jen and Cocoa by Haruu-chan and LeekFish
ART MAJORS FTW
Robin and Toby copsplayed by usagi2ranpha and Little-islander
Alex has a plastic gun. Toby is going ARAFDHAJGJ. Robin is confused. Noting makes sense and all is right with the world.
The level of maturity is overwhelming.
They wanted to cosplay outerwear and underwear so they even made Vance and Frey's panties. Not only that, they also made extra ones for me to wear XD
Last but not least, amazing cosplay and photography by KashinoRei and Andy-K. They are in Germany so I wasn't able to meet them at Sakura-con, but hopefully I'll be able to visit a European con in the future
College LifeI don't really talk too much about my daily life on dA since I didn't want to spam everyone with constant horror stories of my time in the kitchen (which is why I do that on fb https://www.facebook.com/FisheyePlacebo/photos_stream instead) but today, I would like to share some of the extra "special" moments during my college life (even though I graduated already).College Life2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Respect YourselfMy friend shared this video to warn other artists about how she was taken advantage of, and I believe this is a very important message that every artist should hear.Respect Yourself2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've lost count of how many times someone, be it a big corporation or an individual, have asked me to illustrate for them for free. It will always go something like this "You draw this for us, and we will include your name in the credits. That's good publicity for you!" as if such a pathetic offer holds any merit.
There was one specific case where a guy wanted to use my drawing as a book cover but didn't want to pay. He said he might print up to 50,000 books, so that's like an amazing offer of 50,000 views for me right? Wrong. 50,000 is nothing. We live in the information revolution. Don't forget we have places like Deviantart, tumblr, and all those social networking sites. Sharing art, like sharing any information, has never been easier. You don't have to degrade yourself for some disrespectful publisher to get you art se

Sorry for taking while to give a result. It was a wonderful but hard time for me to choose top 5 since everyone seems like music theme. We have more entries than usual challenges and actually the most wonderful thing is quality of all entries are growing up. Isn't it amazing? I was so excited to see them all, therefore if you have time, please take a look at whole entries since I am sure you can find several great artists there to watch: http://hellobaby.deviantart.com/favourites/47401935
(BTW, if I miss any entries in the challenge fav folder, please tell me since sometimes I forget to add it in while I am watching them around. Thank you,)
Also look at them make me wish I could choose more, not only top 5. Yeah, it has been a really hard time to pick top 5 only (sorry, I wish I could pick more):

Fisheye Placebo ImagesI saw this awesome Fisheye Placebo music video by Linda Neumann and realized that it would probably be easier for music video editors and language translators to have a textless version of all of the panels so here it is https://www.dropbox.com/sh/84jcondrsylfh82/pVEbp8d1QqFisheye Placebo Images1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Feel free to download the images for any class projects, music videos, translations, etc. Please credit and remember that I drew these for everyone to read for free, so do not try to sell or profit from my work in anyway. If I find people charging others for translated versions of this story, or selling copies of my work, I will be very angry ):
That aside, check out the cool video! She did a wonderful job editing everything

The Rurouni Kenshin Movie ExperienceSome months ago, a rumor surfaced that they would be showing the Rurouni Kenshin live action movie at our theaters here in the Philippines. After some weeks of torture, we were finally given an official confirmation and screening date! The day they started selling tickets online, I got a bunch for me and my friends, even though it was a couple of months too early, hahah!The Rurouni Kenshin Movie Experience2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Nearing the screening date, I received a wonderful surprise from :iconup-ame: UP-AME.org.
They invited me to be a guest and cosplay competition judge for Swordplay, a Rurouni Kenshin fan event, and also to the special advanced screening days before the official screening date. I've often thought that if there is one cosplay I would like people to remember me by, it would be Kenshin. I was very honored and touched that they had thought of including me to a day celebrating a series that means so much to me, and a movie I had been looking forward to for ages.
My friends and I had decided s
Practical Strategies: How to be more popular in dAThank you all for always participating in my polls/surveys, and sorry that I can't reply to every comment personally, but they are indeed helpful and interesting, each comment has brought me new ideas and inspiration, so here, I have some strategies to share with you, content based on the results of my latest poll. http://kelly1412.deviantart.com/journal/poll/2995299/Practical Strategies: How to be more popular in dA2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It is true that your artwork is the key to all the attention you receive. However, there are still some strategies that could help you get more attention, in terms of comments, self-achievement, favorites and watchers. In this journey I'll share with you some strategies that I've discovered through my own personal analysis and observation.
(they've all been tested, but no guarantee if it will work for everyone.)
And it will not directly make your art better, only you have that ability within yourself!

Somehow, this silly page has hit 9 million views!
Just to be absolutely clear, I do not think the views make me any better than anyone else. I mean, I'm sure some of those are from people who don't even like me. But I guess my point is that it's crazy to imagine that this page has been opened up that many times, and I can't help wondering where all these hits have come from. And I just feel so grateful that a select few people in those millions have come to be irreplaceable friends to me.
It's been a wild ride with all of you guys through all this time. To me this isn't just a page where I simply showcase my artwork or the cosplay photos my friends and I come up with. This site has opened up so many opportunities for me, and has introduced me to some of the most wonderful people I've met in my life.
It's been a journey, and my interactions with the people here have taught me more than I can express.

Stolen art sold at conventionsHey guys! I had a great time at SacAnime but while I was there, I saw a vendor's booth called Hidden Supplies selling sakimichan's Kakashi paintingStolen art sold at conventions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I asked her if she gave permission for this or not, and sure enough, she didn't. I think it's safe to say that the rest of the $25 mats sold at the booth were also using stolen art, but I don't recognize any of the artists. Here are some photos of the booth and all the mats are also listed on their website https://www.hiddensupplies.com/index.php?routeroduct/category&path=71. Please take a look and report the images you recognize to the respective artists so that they may take the proper legal actions against these these people. Thank you!

In completely unrelated news, I went to the bank yesterday to get a new debit card, and before I knew it, the bank teller was showing me a complete list of people who shared my name so I could pick out which one is me. The list showed all of their address and social security number.
WTF, bank?! If I were a criminal, I could have memorized some poor victim's info and gotten a new debit card to their account instead and stolen all of their money. I will never feel safe again ._.
German lesson number two!:3 - Polite talkingHello there!;///;German lesson number two!:3 - Polite talking2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I never expected this journal would become so popular.O///O
So I decided to make another one to help you!:3
Let's start. :iconteatimeplz:
In english, everybody is usually 'you'.
In germany, you have to address people as 'Sie' when they become adults. It's polite, and if you don't do it you seem very rude. There are two ways of 'Sie' in german. One is the feminine sie. This one is used for females. "Sie spielt draußen" - "She is playing outside."
And there is the other Sie, the one I just told you about.
The femine sie is written without a capital letter, the polite sie is written with a capital S - Sie. The polite sie can be used for both, female and male.
Some expample sentence with 'Sie':
Do you know where I can find the toilet? - Wissen Sie , wo die Toillete ist? [ Wisan se wow de towletah ist?]
A look at Mako and Bolin's pastA new Legend of Korra-related webseries has been released by Nickelodeon, giving viewers a glimpse at Mako and Bolin’s hard-luck childhood.A look at Mako and Bolin's past1 year ago in Personal More Like This
A new short webseries called Republic City Hustle debuted today on Nickeldeon.com. Republic City Hustle serves as a small prequel to The Legend of Korra, focusing on the characters of Mako and Bolin as young orphans trying to survive in Republic City.
The beautiful paper-cut animation style of Republic City Hustle is very distinct from The Legend of Korra‘s visual identity. However, the consistent character design and voice work by Korra‘s David Faustino (Mako) and PJ Byrne (Bolin) – as well as the use of music from season 1 – help Republic City Hustle remain perfectly in tone with the Avatar universe.
Republic City Hustle will be told in three parts, and will continue next week (August 16). Check out the first installment right here:
