I need to understand kimono layers. Help?I'm such a bad manga fan. And a bad fan of other cultures' clothing?!? But I mean I'm not just drawing a thing, I'm needing to write a description of a thing! OH I'M SO AWKWARD. DX *sob* So I'm hoping someone here will be able to help me. I'm googling, but am failing to come up with the correct keywords and kind of need to solve the mystery sooner rather than later.I need to understand kimono layers. Help?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
SO I know that layers are typical, though not so much now with centralized heat and air.
I'm looking at these photos and wondering what these three robes are, what are their various functions are, if they're worn beneath other type of robe??
This specific query deals with Japanese robes, but oh I would so love descriptions or references of similar robes from Korea, Mongolia, China, Thailand, Cambodia .... I know that time periods have different garments, I'm most interested in what is commonly found today.

CHRISTMAS PRINTS GIVEAWAY!!
Season's Greetings, everyone!!
I was inspired to do something special this year for Christmas, and I thought this might be a great opportunity to try making my first few prints!
~~and what better time than Christmas!!
So here's what's gonna happen:
From everyone that enters the giveaway, I'll draw a few names from a hat, and they will win a few prints- which I will mail to them as a free Christmas gift!
Now, the number of winners and number of prints will depend on how many people enter... XD So if very few people enter, I'll send a higher number of prints to a fewer amount of people- i

We're coming back to Anime Expo! And that means we're having another gathering! It will be Day 3 of Anime Expo and we will be wearing our secret cosplays.
We're holding it at the same place we did last year. It was the space between the pillars going into the West Hall.

LeechesHere's an average summary of a private message that I receive on a weekly basis:Leeches2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I just came by your profile and saw your art, and was very impressed. I think you have a very nice art style. Now I'm working on this project. It's called <project>. It's an awesome story about <subject>. I'm currently writing the script for it, but I'm planning to make a visual novel. I can't tell too much about the story, since I don't want it to be copied, but it's going to be really cool. The point is; I need illustrators. I'm an excellent writer, but I can't do illustration at all. And therefore, I wanted to ask for your help. I need about 60 pages illustrated and colored. Would you work together with me on this one? I don't have any money to spend, as I'm not an established writer yet. But when the visual novel gets published, you can get a percentage of my profit.
With kind regards,
Well... let me translate this for you.

My response to your comments :)Hi againMy response to your comments :)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since I've received a lot of comments to my last journal entry, I want to respond to them.
First of all: thanks to all of you for supporting me, giving me advice, trying to make me feel better or explaining the reasons of the trolling people. I did block that person and I think I'll do that in the future again if somebody acts like that again.
Don't worry, I woun't let these people change me or my work, they just made me a bit angry and confused about how they could act that way.
I read somewhere to never argue with a stupid person, cause they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience. So I guess that is another reason to use the block option.
One good thing came out of that situation by the way: I got to read your thoughts, notice you and see many of you who are following me and I must say, I feel very lucky that so talented models and creative artists like my work .
So, thanks again for your thoughts and your support!
Wish you all a good start i

Speed painting feature!First of all; I have to say I'm really amazed by the amount of people that have joined me in the #speedpaintingchallenge over the last month!Speed painting feature!3 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I didn't expect so many people to actually take this challenge, let alone take it this month already. There were many people that featured and spread the message. There have been many people different people joining. Some talented, some beginners. Some used digital art, some resorted to traditional art, making pretty pictures of their drawing with the mediums they used next to it. I've even see speed paintings been recorded and uploaded to YouTube. I've even seen the message spread to twitter and other mediums. Really cool!
It was hard to pick a winner for the challenge. You've all worked hard and you've all done great jobs on painting and improving!
But the winner of the challenge is Delight046!!!
She's done an amazing job at painting every day for about 2 hours, even if that meant she could make more than one painting
