Princess Mononoke Teaser
Miyazaki creates a dark, violent and complex modern fairy tale in Princess Mononoke drawing from history, fantasy, and traditional Japanese folklore.
The film follows the journey of Ashitaka, a young warrior who goes in search of a cure to save his life and finds himself in the middle of a battle between nature and industry. The animal gods lead by Princess Mononoke (or S
McCall's Patterns + Yaya Han = Cosplay patterns!Today is an incredibly exciting day!!!McCall's Patterns + Yaya Han = Cosplay patterns!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I feel incredibly lucky that on my birthday, I can finally reveal a long-awaited dream come true with all of you.
McCall's Patterns reached out to me last year to see if I would like to design some patterns for them. (Still reeling over this sentence, btw.) I had a meeting and lovely tour of their offices, and then got to work. My ideas were overflowing, but I knew exactly which patterns I wanted to design first...
We're proud to present "Yaya Han's Ultimate Bodysuit Pattern" as the first finished collaboration between McCall's Patterns and me.
It's a pattern we are sorely missing in the cosplay world - I know from having to alter and draft my own bodysuit patterns for many years. This patterns will make it easy for cosplayers (and everyone else) to tailor a bodysuit that will fit them like a glove, and use it as a base for thousands of costume ide

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

Once Upon A Time
Fairy tales usually begin once upon a time—a time that need not be identified because the tale, and its meaning, are of a timeless nature. The landscape of a fairy tale is often dreamlike, as if to tell us trying to apply normal logic to the story will only confuse the point that the storyteller is trying to make. Fairy tales usually involve dangerous journeys, often following after or searching for a wayward loved one, and entail a getting lost in the mists of time and space. The climax is almost always the discovery of a heretofore unknown inner store of courage in the face of evil and imminent death. Fairy tales tell our child
Pin-Up: From Objectification to EmpowermentIn researching the history of pin up art I found that before there were the “centerfold girls” there were the “pin-up calendar girls” – the semi-nude young women in lingerie whose photographs adorned calendars sold semi-legally from under the counters of gas stations and truck stops.Pin-Up: From Objectification to Empowerment3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

How to draw during 365 daysHow to draw during 365 days7 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
By the beginning of 2014 I started this account and uploaded a doodle a day during a year. It was the most challenging thing I ever did and it helped me loads on improving my art.
I've seen a lot of mentions on my inbox about artists that are starting their own 365 Days challenge and I want to write this journal to share what I've learned through my experience and maybe encourage some of you to join this long term journey.
It's okay to start simple!
My first doodles were waaay more simple than the other ones. If I had to start the project again I would still do them simple. Of course, starting this challenge is very exciting but it's a dead end if you put a heavy load on yourself at the beginning!
Focus on knowing your pace first. How much time does it take you to finish your drawings?

A Gallery of Narrative Dreams
A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

Celebrate deviantART's 13th Birthday!Celebrate deviantART's 13th Birthday!2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
On the day of your birth, you were likely surrounded by those who loved you, who would lead you through the rough first scary years of life, and who would stand by as you grew into a capable person. As time passed, others may have drifted into your life, and even if you didn't know it, they also nurtured and cared for you in much the same way, helping to shape the person you would become.
When a community like deviantART is born, the same common thread binds its originators and founding members together. Over the years, more and more creative beings drift into its life and strengthen its core every single day, resulting in an exponentially inspirational powerhouse for the sheer fact that they've become a part of it. That nurturing spirit, that inherent support system, that caring community inspires deviantART to grow, and it comes from inside each and every one of you.

I am wary of my following message not being received with the full gravity it deserves. It is not my intention to unduly alarm the deviantART community, but... LaurenKitsune is at this time unaccounted for. All attempts on our part to contact her have failed. It is my hope that she has simply taken a much deserved unscheduled pre-Halloween “vacation” and will be back in online communication soon.
Before going dark, LaurenKitsune was good enough to write and transmit a report on the Slender Man phenomenon sweeping the Internet. That report is published here fo

Get it here. Compatible with Firefox 29+.
I thought I'd chuck you guys a bone because no compatible themes = sad deviants. Still lots of issues to iron out (the known issues section below covers the ones I can remember off the top of my head). Sorry it took so long. Been busy and all that jazz. Lemme know how it runs!
Oh, and the Light version isn't going to come out until Pseutro comes out of beta. Still got some CSS variables to fix up before I can make the transition to Pseutro Light.
• Implemented panel UI
• Fixed starred bookmark star colour
• Skinned the new security help button in the site identity popup
• Reverted developer tools theme to default for now (30.0 completely broke it beyond repair)
• Removed the focus rectangles present in the new tab page
• Fixed the ctrl + tab font colour

Took me five days to make a storyboard and paint all the scenes.
Lines are done with pencil on paper, colors done in Photoshop.
All the scenes are based on the original scenes and characters from the manga.

features stage 1okay, a foreword first. as this thing is just starting up i realized going through the suggestions that this is too chaotic. by that i mean that there are many reasons why i should feature a majority of suggested artists herefeatures stage 11 year ago in Personal More Like This
so then it hit me. after this first promotion, next journal will be a different one. we are going to go by different categories, one week we'll have traditional artist week, other a comic artist, another a crafter, a sculptor, manga, animation and so on
so if you haven't gotten featureyd yet it is jsut because this first run has been far more chaotic and in need of a structure. a structure we will from now on have.
so this week i will have this journal on. next week we will do suggestions for...hm...oh let's go with my own teritory to start the categories. comics
next week we will start with sequential comic artists- not pin ups, i mean people posting actual pages
we'll do pin ups too. choices will be based on the storytelling skills for this one
