Pixar Internship!! + I'm alive + Birthday!So I'm still alive '_' Thank you so much for your happy birthday wishes! I really appreciate them so much!Pixar Internship!! + I'm alive + Birthday!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If I've been quiet it's because I've started my internship at Pixar this summer! WEE. I'm interning as a story artist in their summer program so that's keeping me busy on the week.. an unexpected food poisoning/stomach flu put me out for two days , too, and so that's also kept me quiet over the past few days of birthday wishings XD
Emeryville is nice. it's... cold. I've felt like i've been unable to draw these past two weeks. It's probably leftover burnout from school and feeling overwhelmed... I'm hoping I pick up soon!
Commissions are being worked on still '_'d they slowed down a bit because I got busy and had to move and all of that stuff, but the list is now much smaller. I have several in very-near completion that as soon asI stop playing "catch up my work from sick days!" I'll be finishing up!
I miss Volcano Tea and my favorite Los Angeles hangouts but

After serveral requests, I decided to upload a tutorial for my absinthe corset today. As you can see I used the same pattern for my steampunk corset dress Mademoiselle Émeraude Steam.
This tutorial shows an elaborate corset. Patterns can be found on the Internet at Burda / Simplicity or even online shops about historical patterns and corsets.
Many steps can be used for a simple corsage. The steps
Snippy: poem of doomI've a lot of time on my hands living inside the whale and such. ....So, today I wrote a poem about Captain:Snippy: poem of doom4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Oh Captain, my Captain! I say it to mock,
You're lucky as hell but to me you're a c***.
Please spare me the missions, I've no head for heights,
Balloons and big lists lead me only to blights.
Evading the probes of an alien race,
Then having to witness your > : ( angry face...
But what choice have I? I'm involved in these fights,
With Cancerous space-monsters full of red sprites,
And Lemonade weirdos and God knows what next,
Just how can you stay so serene and unvexed?
What price should I pay for your simple delights,
Be eaten by whales after soiling my whites?
I know you won't listen, but you'll come unstuck,
And one of these days you'll run right out of luck,
Your empire will fall, and your ego besides,
It's karma for sure, like the turn of the tides,
And then I will lol, sitting in my own muck,
Coz after all this I just won't

Inverted heroes are not a move forward.Taking a known hero of fiction and altering their gender and/or race is a stunt. A gimmick. They do it for the sake of “shock” advertising rather than out of any real desire to add variety to the predominantly white male pantheon.Inverted heroes are not a move forward.10 months ago in Personal More Like This
There have been a few news articles to stoke my irritation over the last couple of months. First there was word that Thor of the Marvel universe was to become female, then there was a rumour James Bond was going to be recast with a black actor and now there are mumbles that the Spiderman who may/may not show up in the cinematic Marvel universe will be a black kid: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-trending-31362800
Personally, I think all this crap is side-stepping the issue of diversity rather than addressing it. If the likes of Marvel were really serious about it, they’d invest time and capital creating new heroes who are a different gender/race from the get-go. Building up a new mythology for a female or black character would be so much str

I finally get to translate article about my “Batman Returns” Catwoman costume. And just right time for Halloween x)
I'm very sorry if there are mistakes in the text! And I'm sorry that there are no wip photos, I did not make them, unfortunatelly. But in this article I tried to upload the materials, that helped me to make my own costume.
<cut> Well, first of all few words about why I chose this version. I’m a cat person, I always had cats at home and I love them very much. So it’s not a surprise that I also love such an amazing character as Catwoman. And my first meeting with her happened, when I was a child thanks to Tim Burton’s movie “Batman Returns”. I was amazed by Michelle Pfeiffer’s acting and since then her Selina Kyle is the only one for me. She’s beautiful, dangerous and a little crazy, exactly how Catwoman should be. I alw
ENGIE: RegretsI was at first too stupid to see that we were no longer using ANNIE but Annie was using us.ENGIE: Regrets4 years ago in Personal More Like This
She was a goddess in the machine, our search engine.
We used her to collect and share knowledge and in return she had started to use us as her processors. It was an unexpected transition and it took a long time, thus I failed to notice it, failed to stop it. The new organism had come to life in which we were only neuron cells of her massive mind, that spanned continents.
Humanity no longer had a chance to survive in it's current state. We had poisoned the oceans, we had scorched the earth and blackened the sky in our quest for power.
The world we knew was dying. I knew that this decade would be our last. The city would fall to the Zone, sooner or later.
Research notes from the last report of Charles Snippy terrified me greatly. They had found something horrid in the Dead Zone. Something that killed them all.

I'm at a loss to really articulate this fully, but I know she loved you all who shared her art, and I know its a loss of light for all who knew her... it certainly is darkest for me.

Ten Tips for Photographing Food1) Set the Table...Ten Tips for Photographing Food3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In the image above, claremanson not only photographs something that looks enticingly delicious and creative, but she has additionally set the scene. She's made up the 'table' so to speak, so that it compliments and even enhances the Food that she's photographing. Looking carefully at your setting is a fantastic way of making your Food look good and unique. It's cheap too, just look at using glasses, sometimes with liquid in them, colourful tablecloths, napkins or any other items that might suit your image. Within cookery books these days, images that 'set the scene' are becoming increasingly more popular and widely used.
2) Play with your Food...
Here, LADYW has not just made a 'salad' or an arrangement of food. She's looked carefully at how she can arrange her food in the most creative and complimentary way. Using shapes and colour to make something look good
Character CreationFirst, go and choose one of the 52 cards that appears in a standard deck of playing cards (You can find a list of them here), or either the Black or Red Joker.Character Creation2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Once you have chosen one of them, locate the correct app. There's Hearts, Spades, Clubs, and Diamonds, and they can all be found here. The app you choose should be the suit of the card you have chosen (for the Joker cards, you can choose a suit that would be the color of your chosen Joker. For example, the Black Joker could be in either Spades or Clubs)
Once you have drawn your character, you must complete the written part of your app, which can be found below. This part will go in the Artist's Comment section when you post the app

Meeting New People/New York/Workshops?Last weekend I was lucky enough to be invited to NataliaTaffarel's workshop in Singapore. It's been a looooooong time since I'd been to any sort at all but I had so much fun. Natalia's so good and the people there were super nice~!! Hmm it's like, I've forgotten how it's like meeting so new people somehow. I guess working alone does that to people sometimes? T_T;;;Meeting New People/New York/Workshops?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since then I'd been really productive and hardworking and it's a welcoming change I think. So definitely be expecting more updates from me~~
~ Workshops? ~
Anyway so I spent a lot of time with Natalia and the workshop organizers and they're finally making me think about doing some workshops too. I'd actually been asked about this pretty frequently but have really never said yes because I think it's just too difficult to do a good job and make everyone happy. But I know from the few talks I've done at schools and events I don't hate it or anything. So maybe it's time I want to give it a shot?

May 24 is Demio's birthday. She has undergone the most changes to her outfits and hair as well as her personality. She started out as a human and is now an angel.
October 5 is Kiyoshi's Birthday. Zatch's older and more manly brother, who likes teasing Zatch and usually pisses him off. His clothing design has changed somewhat but the fact that he's also an alien didn't.
October 13 is Ruby's Birthday. Ruby is Demio's sister and fallen angel/devil. After being banned from heaven she took her anger out on torturing the humans on Earth and making them hate each other. Until Demio came to Earth.
