Featured Artist - Bobby DriscollBest known to Disney fans as the voice of Peter Pan!Featured Artist - Bobby Driscoll2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Bobby Driscoll lived a very short, rollercoaster life.
He was discovered as a natural actor in a barbershop at the very young age of five-and-a-half! And, he was the first actor to sign a long term contract with the Walt Disney animation department.
At the age of 12, he was given an Oscar for outstanding juvenile actor for his performances in So Dear to my Heart (A Disney Movie) and The Window (RKO Picture).
At about the age of 16, Bobby Driscoll played his most famous roll - Peter Pan. He acted out all the parts himself before they were animated onto film. He was also the first boy ever to play Peter Pan (traditionally, Peter Pan is played by a girl.)
Here are some production pictures for y'all!
Unfortunately, life doesn't always have a fairytale ending for us like in the magical world of Disney. ;_;
Bobby Driscoll was introduced to drugs at the age of seventeen, had several run-ins with the law, and was sentenc
My deviantART StoryHAPPY BIRTHDAY DEVIANTART!!!!My deviantART Story8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
DeviantART is a really important part of my life and it's been like that for several years now, so... how could I not take part to this lovely community event?
Here's my deviantART Story!
I first heard of deviantART 8 or 9 years ago, from my High-school friend Noemi (unfortunately she's not active on this site anymore). We were in the school newspaper and we were chatting about art and manga and she told me about a cool internet community where people from all over the world could share their art with others.
She showed me the site and I immediately signed up.
I was really sorry to see that my nickname was already taken (my REAL nickname is Eren, not Eeren, I just added another E at the front because I thought that since my real name starts with "E" I could have just doubled it. And, NO, my name doesn't come from Shingeki No Kyojin ;D), but that didn't stop me from creating an account.

Photography tips, the different way. :)MindtravellingPhotography tips, the different way. :)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I do not know how other photographers does it, but I like to walk around with my camera and when I have gotten a certain distance I close my eyes and play back the same steps I had taken, If I notice something doing so I go back and start taking pictures.
The same goes for places I have been before, I close my eyes and go through the same paths in my mind and think of locations to take pictures, often this technique leads to very interesting photos once I get out there and also I tend to notice things I did not when I was there first.
Weird or not, that is how I do it, if It works for others I do not know, but It might be fun to give it a try.
Often when you are out taking pictures it is just a natural place and angle to take pictures, but sometimes just turing around and tackling a unusual angle might yield much more interesting images.
An example is the image I took called "Arrival", the other way had a big calm lake wi

Before we get into the thick of things, we didn’t have a photo of our huge plasma screens hanging from the convention ceiling to share in our Day 1 recap, so we vowed to get that to you today! The 11 foot wide screens stream amazing works of art from Artists' Alley participants to the whole convention floor!
In Comic-Cons past, the foot traffic In Artists’ Alley got busier and busier as the week progressed, and this year is no exception. There’s something magical about speaking one-on-one with a deviant, learning their experiences, hearing how they started as an artist, and how far they’ve come. It’s an emotional connection to make with someone who was practically a stranger a few moments ago -- and then you realize you’re not really strangers when you

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

FAQ: FFXIII-2 Starseeker weaponEdit: Many of you asked for a transformation vid. So, I made this video clip. Enjoy!FAQ: FFXIII-2 Starseeker weapon2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In my former journal I asked if you would like for me to explain how my Starseeker weapon was made. Since there were quite some people that would like me to do so, I decided to make this FAQ journal. So, I hope I'l answer some questions you might have about this curious weapon and I hope I can explain it well enough for you all to understand.
Note that I made the weapon a couple of months ago and I don't remember everything very clear of the making of it. But, I'll do my best.
So, first things first: The Starseeker
Serah's weapon is quite the interesting one. This because it's a transformable one just like her sister's, Lightning. Nonetheless, it's a transformable one from bow to blade, which original form is none other than the cute moogle companion, Mog.
Of course, Final Fantasy is all about 'Fantasy', so making an exact workin

sry for being super late with my reports! There still will be a report about the convention in Finland as fast as possible. But first a report about my latest cosplay travel to Hungary !
I was very happy to be invited as guest for the convention "COSPLAYER EXPO" in Budapest.
There, we were judges for the cosplay competition (categories: craftmanship solo, craftsmanship group, performance, EuroCosplay). It took us nearly the complete day to judge. Sadly my panel about ECG and WCS had to be canceled, coz there was not enough time anymore after the cosplay competitions.
I took some photos during the contest while judging XD;...sadly there was not enough time for real shooting with the country's cospalyers. I still hope you enjoy the stage photos...

Socially AwkwardI like the internet, but I acknowledge that it's not perfect. The ability for everyone to be the invisible man allows for a lot of injustice, bullying, harassment, and stalking to take place. This is slowly starting to change, however, thanks to every website gradually forcing people to link to their facebook (or other social media equivalent) accounts. No one wants to lose their personal social outlets as a result of the stuff they were doing elsewhere on the web, if you know what I mean. But... with all good things there are some bad things.Socially Awkward2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't know if it's just me, but I'm getting really creeped out how by how much everything is getting connected these days. Nearly every website asks me to post about stuff on facebook or twitter or reddit or whatever. Many websites don't even have personal accounts anymore and just have you link your social media accounts instead. And all of them want to update everyone on your every move 24/7.
And that's what's bothering me. I don't want every

Which means The Dark Moon Clan (the 2nd batch of villains) & the Outer Scouts/Senshi are making their debut. And it also means that ChibiUsa/Sailor Mini Moon/Sailor Chibi Moon will be there as well.
How did they portray her in this one? Thankfully, ChibiUsa/Rini isn't like the little brat that everyone loathed in the old anime.
She's a little scrappy & devious, but she's heavily flawed and her dialogue show's a little guilty inside her (read the manga and see why).
And I found 5 new (crossover & crack) pairings in mind.
