How to make friends on deviantARTThis is a remake of an old journal I made, but it seems like it's happening a lot around here again, so I'll be reiterating and adding more things to it here! Feel free to link anyone to this journal if they're attempting to force friendship on you or are just going about things in the wrong way, and need a little nudge in the right direction.How to make friends on deviantART2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There /is/ a RIGHT WAY and a WRONG WAY to try to make friends!
Have you ever been asked by someone randomly, "Can we be friends?" ? Or perhaps someone simply acts as if you are their best friend, even when you don't know them. They may comment to others talking about you a lot, or call you by a nickname that only your friends use, write journals about you, send tons of notes or comments to you, "mention" you all the time, jump into your conversations with someone else, or perhaps make a lot of buddy-buddy fan-art that makes you uncomfortable?
This is a message for those kinds of people.

Cosplay FAQCOSPLAY FAQ!Cosplay FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Most of the time, I find FAQ to be a little bit pretentious, but I've finally decided to make one simply because, I get one of these questions at least once a week, and while I love giving you all the individual help that I can, those of you who have asked these questions and received answers know they tend to be suuuuper long winded (I have a hard time explaining any other way), and I just don't always have time to answer in as much detail as I like. So here I can make sure I give all the basic info I can think of, but you are more than welcome to note me or comment with any further questions!
First, this one is really more for my sake, but has been asked a few times: Can I make a replication of your (whatever character) cosplay?
Let me first say that I don't feel knowledge belongs to any one person. I am more than happy to explain in detail to you how I have done absolutely everything on any of my cosplays. From makeup to a

Artist Identity and Art’s Purpose
A new movie, while only mildly stirring contreversy here in the USA, is causing quite an uproar in England. Anonymous is a big budget Molotov cocktail of a cultural provocation hurled by the producer-director of Godzilla and 2012, Roland Emmerich. He brings the same subtle and nuanced touch he exercised in those films to his latest film, in which he takes up the scorchingly contentious (if little known outside college literature departments) debate ongoing between the “Stratfordians” (those who believe the Shakespeare plays were written by the late-16th Century actor named Shakespeare) and the “Oxfordians” (those who believe the Shakespeare plays were written by Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford

Well, we can't be all born with mad talent. But there are certainly ways to speed up the process for you! In the journal here, I listed some tips and tricks that helped me getting to the point where I am now. I thought I'd share them with you. And maybe you can add to the list. I'm always willing to learn.
Give up on being a mangaka -- or hold more realistic expectations
Admit it. Most of us here started drawing manga because we liked the style at a certain point. How awesome would it be to one day become a pro in that field. A real manga artist (or mangaka, like they say in Japan)! The truth is... becoming a mangaka isn't that easy. It it were, many more people would be one. First of all, mangaka's live in Japan. That's the only country with a manga industry big enough to actually ha
TIPS AND ADVICEOver the last few weeks I’ve been getting lots of requests for tips and advice. So I thought instead of answering each one I will give an overall guide to what I’ve learnt over the last year using graphite. And some of the things I’m going to say may sound very obvious but I’m trying to cater for artists of all levels so just ignore the bits you already know (I apologise for how long this is).TIPS AND ADVICE1 year ago in Personal More Like This
But before I go on I must point out though, that I am no expert and this is just what I’ve found works for me so may not work for everyone. And I have only really started getting used to using graphite pencils recently, as I had not drawn for 11 years until September 2012. And so I am still learning myself and have only found out what works for me from allot of practising and trial and error. Also I am not going to go into doing skin textures as I’m still learning what works and it’s far too complicated to describe on here.

Wacom Intous4 Pen Nibs Getting StuckHello Everyone,Wacom Intous4 Pen Nibs Getting Stuck3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A few weeks ago I wore out my Intuos4 tablet pen nib to the point where I realized I could not remove it with tweezers and change it, THEN to make it worse, the more I tried to take it out with tweezers the shorter and shorter it got until it was impossible to grab onto it at all. This was incredibly infuriating as, for some reason, it took weeks for Wacom to get back to me (actually, they never got back to me the first time) and I ended up having to send another e-mail to them about this situation, in which they hastily responded this time around.
After I finally got a response for this issue, I was presented with two options. Buy another pen ($50 dollars out of my pocket) or try pulling/pushing it out with a pin. Fortunately, pushing it out with a pin worked! But I am still disappointed that these were the only two options that I was presented with: give Wacom more money for their poorly designed tablet pen (which I hadn't even had for a year yet) or try to figure it
FAQ What does "yuumei" mean?FAQ6 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yuumei (幽冥 or 幽明) means light and darkness, strange and deep, hades, and semidarkness. Not to be confused with yuumei (有名) which means famous... (In my defense, I picked this name when I was 12 and didn't realize it also meant famous...)

The profile picture issueYep. Another rant. It all started a few weeks ago.The profile picture issue1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Apparently there was a topic on DA's forum that was about "profile picture whoring". I honestly didn't know such a thing existed, let alone it would be allowed on DA (artists shaming, isn't it?). I don't even know the URL anymore, neither if it was removed by the mods or not. How I got to know about this topic, you ask? Well, I was tagged. Apparently my current profile picture was posted by someone in the topic, who obviously forgot that I would be mentioned when the picture was posted. The idiot :')
Anyhow. I understand DA's culture nowadays. While I can still remember the days on the internet in which you were only a written username with some text, nowadays the internet is all social media. And social media is full of people screaming for attention. Showing pictures of themselves, just to show how pretty they are and how much their lives are better than yours.

•Stumbled upon the above picture on tumblr. I first imagined a highschool bully for Abbey for TΛB. The idea for Hana to be Abbey's older sister came some time afterwards when brainstorming Hana's backstory.
•Stumbled upon this picture as well. Primarly saved the image as clothing refs for Michiko Toyoda. I always commented on how Cara (who's name I didn't even know at the time) looked like an ideal daughter for Michiko.
•So the base idea for Hana was set. She would be the daughter of someone with Michiko's likeness and instead of being
