4 Tips for When You Commission Others[a needed reminder]4 Tips for When You Commission Others2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was just thinking of this for no real reason earlier and thought I'd share because I've come into contact with all four of these things with the many commissions I've drawn. x'D
And who knows, most of this is common sense but perhaps some of you have never thought of things this way before. ;D;
I just know that most people drawing commissions for you will definitely appreciate it or enjoy drawing your commission more if you do these things.
o1. Be CLEAR and DIRECT with what you want drawn.
-Make the artist feel like they are drawing a character instead of just some item. You don't have to type out their life story, but it's always nice to have a small bit of information about the character to reference to so that a bit of personality or inspiration for posing/expression can be represented.
-So, something like "These two characters. She is really shy and modest and he is really apathetic." is a lot more helpful than "I want these t

Dimensions Wanderers Contest!
That there is more than one world we are living in. And naturally it`s possible to wander between dimensions to pick one that you like the most! Isn`t that sweet? I know, it is.
It`s usually really boring to travel all alone. So what do we do? We take our friends, beloved, relatives (any of those) with us! This way experience goes differently. Better or worse... Depens, really.
I know, that you and me have pretty much business in this world. So why not to send our characters into the joyous journey to the other world?
Written or drawn piece, featuring both your character and mine in the setting other than their own.
Devious Journal EntryMkay this is getting very annoying. xD so I guess ill just put up my two cents when it comes to this issue.Devious Journal Entry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
long text is long
I am not here on deviantART for anyone, I do not draw to please anyone, nor am I here to be used as a feature machine
This rant obviously does not include trades, gifts or commissions xD
The biggest thing that irks me is that people think, just because a lot of people have decided to follow me, I somehow have a obligation to use that to "help" other artists with amazing art get recognized. This is bullshit. Its not my or anyone elses responsibility to make anyone get attention.
IF someone really wants attention, I think its fair that they work for it instead of sitting on their l azy ass waiting for others to do it for them. Remembering back to my own first months here on dA it took me atleast 4 years of being very active. I MEAN uploading stuff almost everyday/commenting back to people, drawing trades and gifts.

Okay so the poll I did was serious ;<;
I have decided to make a contest to design a character for me, because I haven't been able to think of something.

2. It must be a BIRD or a MAMMAL. This means no reptiles, fish, amphibians, humans ETC. Exception: Moths and Mammal-like original species. Yes, you can create a new species for this.
3. Accessories are not necessary but may be included. Clothing is optional as well.

MINI-CONTEST!Hey guys! Welcome to my Mini-Contest! I always wanted to make one, so here it is ~ \o/MINI-CONTEST!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You have to draw my character Scarlette, one of my OCs! I will choose the most original and creative drawings! And since I made her when I was like 5, I never imagined a personality for her, so you can draw her perky, shy, wicked or whatever you want, it's all about headcanon! XD
Here's a sloppy reference I very quickly made! If you want more drawings of her, send me a note! (Yes, her skin is LITTERALLY white like the snow xD)
(EDIT) Another less sloppy reference here! :
The winners will get:
1st place - I'll draw for you a full picture with 2 of your OCs!
2nd place - I'll draw for you a full picture with 1 of your OCs!
3rd place - I'll draw for you a full picture of your favorite character!
When you have finished your entry, please send it to my

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!2 years 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
