Custom Breaking Bad FiguresCustom Breaking Bad Figures4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Last year I sculpted up a few portraits of Bryan Cranston as Walter White from my favorite show "Breaking Bad". I was finally able to put the finishing touches on 3 custom figures of Walt, all of which were given to the creators of the show this past week.
It's been a helluva lot of fun, and a tremendous thrill to get to meet the artists behind this terrific show that has been so inspiring to me. Kinder people you will not meet!
So here's a look at the finished custom figures. These were pieced together from various sources, using Hot Toys bodies, and clothes I found on ebay and then altered. The heads were all painted by some talented friends of mine, and they really brought Walt to life. It's been a lot of work to try and piece these together in my free time, but I really enjoyed doing it.
ps- A random winner was chosen from my last giveaway. I'll do another giveaway in the coming months, I'm sure. thanks!

A Year of Cosplay: 2013Wow, so another year has passed along with another line of cosplays. I’ll be a little more lengthy this year and share my thoughts about each costume I completed this year. Go below the cut to read more about my summary of cosplays for 2013..A Year of Cosplay: 20132 years ago in Personal More Like This
The first costume I completed in 2013 I had actually started in 2012. And that was Skyloft Link, which was debuted at Taiyou Con 2013.
(Photo by Cosplay Close-Up)
When I played Skyward Sword for the first time, I loved Link’s Skyloft design and I caved. It wasn’t a cosplay that I had initially planned on doing, it just…sort of happened on a whim. I still didn’t quite understand the concept of lining, so things aren’t lined properly, but the fabric is “double-sided.” And I was still a little intimidated by applique, so I used fabric paint for the designs. But despite that, I thought the overall look of the costume tur

What I personally find the hardest to draw is feet and hands. I found that with a lot of practice and a lot of frustrating mistakes my feet and hands actually look at the very least almost the way i want them to be.
Now my favorite Style of drawing is Anime or sometimes semi-realism, and i find that by doing studies of the more traditional style realism actually helps improve my anime pictures greatly. For instance i would practice drawing my hands and feet in different positions holding different things and from different angles. I also find it extremely helpful while i'm drawing and i'm having a particularly hard time drawing a hand or a foot in a certain position i will stop for a

So, early in 2012 I made a few New Years Resolutions, all which were outlined here:
So, did I manage to fulfil all my resolutions? Heck, no. I had a lot of things I wanted to improve on and somewhat lazy to improve on all of it. But here are some things I did improve on:
Drawings before 2012:
Drawings of 2012:
I think what helped was buying a 9B pencil Still, I need to improve on detail, drawing the human in proportion and smoother shading. Next time I'm going to try it out on Bristol paper – I heard it was quite smooth and I'm quite curious about it.
This is a tutorial on graphite blending I found useful:

I've been waiting for this day ever since I joined dA. First I thought I'd never reach 100 but you all were showing me that my art is worth it! Then I set my goal to 500 with the "500 Watchers - Art Raffle" in 2013. At 700 watchers I felt generous and drew a free artwork ( :GIFT: Jessica and Ice Cream) for :devkarebear4ever:, my 700st watcher. Over the last year I improved a lot thanks to critiques I got here as well as over on Facebook and thanks to this, all the groups I'm part of and all the awesome people here who are watching and supporting me, THIS JOURNAL is in the inbox of 1.000 people right now... unbelievable!

Tutorial: Basic Cosplay Make-upBasic Information:Tutorial: Basic Cosplay Make-up3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As said before: English is not my native language. I'm sorry for every mistake I made while writing. I'm just showing you what works for me. This is a "you can" tutorial and not "you must". I hope this gives you a basic idea on how I do it and helps you as well. I will not show you any brands of make-up I work with since they are different from country to country. I'm not a dermatologist or a professional make-up artist, so I can't give you tips for "problem skin" cases like acne and so on. Please consult a doctor and let them give you tips for what's best to use before buying something randomly
If you don't know what make-up to use out of the hilarious amount of available products in stores ask a vendor in the store of your choice. They will help you.
This tutorial will be the base for every upcoming make-up related tutorial I will post in the future.
First of all I clean my skin and apply vanishing crème. It's always good to do so
