Please hold on to your money...Just found out RE: Play is available thru on-demand printing via the "new" TokyoPop/RightStuf. This would be why Stu wasn't about to give me the rights to post it up for free. Sneaky, sneaky, I even emailed him before the holidays and he made no mention of my book going up for on-demand printing.Please hold on to your money...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Please don't buy them. Buying them won't help me at all, I won't see a dime from them and any sales will just make my property seem like it has some money in it which will make it ever harder to ever get my property back.
If you never bought RE: Play and wanted it, please just buy something off my online store instead. There are tonnes of comics on there too:
Or hold on to your money and help support Dire Hearts, my new project that'll be up for Kickstarter later this year.
OR if you need comics now, please support another self published comicker or pick up some lesser loved titles from pub

FAQHow did you get started?FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've always sculpted as a hobby and am completely self taught. In April of 2010 I decided I wanted to finally try my hand at selling my work. I started posting things on etsy and DA and veeery slowly people started noticing. My first couple of years relied heavily on commission work.
How are you so popular? I just started making sculptures too but nobody notices or buys them?
It took well over two years before I was actually getting fulltime work with decent pay. It took a TON of hard work. I sold my work for far less than I should have, because I needed customers. I also did a few shows, to get some exposure by handing out business cards. I made things as often as I could, posted often, and made sure it was very clear I was open for commissions. I posted links on everything. You have to make it easy for people to find the info they need! I posted mainly on etsy and DA, then made a fanpage on facebook very late in the game. Probably sh

Now all I hope is that none of you go and flame me or do anything brash. I truly regret this.
But informing my friends to protect you is more important than anything. The needs and my love of the many outweigh those of the few.
I do not do this in an accusatory manor and I have held off for months before releasing to the public....this is not for attention. This is not for drama. All I state is factual.
Do not flame people. Do not block people. And any names I name are regrettable, but must be done.

Hmm... interesting... this could approve BolinxEska theory... xD. But, i just cant ship Bolin and Eska because... you know, Bolin is all energetic-goofy-GORGEOUS and Eska seems like the "Mai" of Legend of Korra.
Who knows, maybe a nice girl is behind that "androgynous creepiness"
And another interesting this to note is the background. I does not look like the south pole to me, it's more like they where in republic city. But both of them are wearing that big winter coats; it looks like the South pole has had a lot of reconstruction in the last 70 years...

New clip from Beginnings"The Legend of Korra" season 2 continues to go through air date and scheduling changes, this time reporting that a one-hour special will air October 18.New clip from Beginnings2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The one-hour special on October 18 will in fact be "The Legend of Korra" season 2 episode 7 and 8 called "Beginnings, Part 1" and "Beginnings, Part 2."
This one-hour special will feature a flashback to the very first Avatar, Wan, voiced by "The Walking Dead" star Steven Yuen.
Hypable reveals that Wan will show his journey to becoming the very Avatar as he tries to preserve balance between the mortal world and the Spirit World. Given that season 2 is called Book 2: Spirits, we can assume Wan will reveal a lot about the Avatar mythology.
"Steve's vocal quality and acting can range from an innocent, naļve young man, to a trickster anti-hero, and all the way to a full-fledged action hero," says "Korra" co-creator Bryan Konietzko on Yeun.

The genius of Miyazaki - Art HistoryIf you haven't heard his name, you must have heard about at least one of his creations. So, who's Miyazaki? It's easier to say who he's not.The genius of Miyazaki - Art History3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Hayao Miyazaki was born on the 5th of January 1941 in Bunkyo, Tokyo, as a second of four sons. His father was a director in young Miyazaki's uncle's factory producing rudders for fighter planes - this is where Hayao became highly interested in aviation, which often appears in his films.
When Miyazaki was a little kid, his mother suffered from Pott's disease (sort of tuberculosis) and spent a few years in a hospital. Some says that a very similiar motif appearing in "Tonari no Totoro" ("My neighbour Totoro") was strongly inspired by that part of his life. Also, during his childhood, Miyazaki had to change his place of residence and switch schools several times, which influenced his films a lot, too.
FAQHere I've compiled a list of the questions I get asked the most often ^_^FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) How long have you been making miniatures?
I started out in July of 2008 with a book by Sue Heaser called Making Doll's House Miniatures with Polymer Clay. It's a fantastic book with very easy to follow tutorials on everything from miniature potatoes to Tiffany style lamps. I was amazed at how such simple clay techniques could produce incredibly realistic results. From there I started using pictures of real food as a reference and it's spiraled into an obsession ever since!
2) Where do you purchase your plates and other miniature accessories?
Luckily there's a local miniatures shop called Little Enchantments (http://www.littleenchantments.com) that has anything doll sized you could possibly ask for. I've also bought dishes and all sorts of cutlery from Ebay.
3) Do you make the plates or just the food?
I only make the food ^_^ The only n

Frequently Asked QuestionsI get asked many questions and it can be hard for me to answer them all, so I have compiled a list of questions which I'm often asked in the hope it is of interest to some of youFrequently Asked Questions2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Where did you learn?
I've taught myself. My Secondary (High) School art teacher told me 'cartoon are not art' and so I had no interest in perusing 'art' classes any further. At about 13 I began to draw every day, less studying, more drawing what came to mind, creating characters and worlds and getting my thoughts and feeling onto paper.
I joined deviantART at 15, and the feedback and critique I've gained through sharing my art online has helped a lot in my improvement. I wasn't born with any 'gift', unless you count functioning hands, I learned through practice. My early drawings are just as bad as everyone elses (I keep them as proof) I a
Factory dolls are NOT whoresHi guys!Factory dolls are NOT whores2 years ago in Personal More Like This
first, I really appreciate your comments about my repaintings, you told me a lot you like how I give her a sweeter touch, but also I've read too many comments saying their factory makeup and clothes make them look like bitches, sluts, whores etc (and not only monster high, also bratz and barbie dolls). and I have to say I completely disagree.
Companies make llamative dolls with a lot of colors because they want to sell, and it's easier to sell a glamurous doll than a natural doll that looks like any girl you can find walking in the street. They know how to make buisness, and they do it perfectly.
Now, the image they give:
a lot of people say that kind of dolls aren't appropiated for little girls. I don't know what they mean exactly with little girls, but as I know the monster high dolls have like 1600 years (except Frankie, who is 16 years old, but I don't know if there's more exceptions), what translated into human years is 16 years. A 16 years old girl isn't very "little" to

In the previous article of the typography series I presented some of the basic principles of type design and we started designing a geometric sans typeface such as Futura. In this article we will expand that typeface and add italics and alternate weights. Or rather, I will show you how to design italics and briefly present how you can modify your regular weight typeface to create alternate weights rather than having to re-draw the whole letter.
