My deviantART Story

Thu Aug 7, 2014, 1:56 PM

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEVIANTART!!!!


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?

:heart: Here's my deviantART Story! :heart:


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.
At the time I probably had been using my first wacom tablet for a few months and I was absolutely crazy about it.
I was a looooooot into fantasy and RPGs and I found many lovely artists that shared my passions and love for fantasy art.

With time I started creating some clubs dedicated to my favorite comics and books: Skydoll-Factory, claymore-FC and WinterIsComing-fans to share my passions with even more people. 
After a short time my mom started buying me a subscription from my b-day, and soon after that came my first deviantART T-shirt!

While this community helped me making lots of new friends, it also helped me improving my art, thanks to amazing artists that I was able to discover and follow on this site. Some of them became real art-idols for me, and they've been inspiring me for years now, guiding me with their work and teaching me lots and lots of incredible things and techniques.

If I should choose some of the most important works from my past story here on dA, they would probably be:
Grim tales page 5 by bleedmanLucifer by Wen-MRaven from Teen Titans by klarGo.. Go angel... by FealasyPepper Relax II by ArtgermThe Devil's Servent by sambeesthe Lyth by Orpheelin
These have all been some of my first favourites and I printed all of these works and hung them on the walls of my room, where they stayed for years and years. All of these amazing artists have been an incredible inspiration for me all along my art-life and they still have a place in my heart as inspirational idols.
(to the artists above: sorry if I featured some really old works of yours, but... those were really important for me in the past <3)

Time passed and I collected splendid experiences and friendships here, then one of the greatest achievements of my all life arrived: 1st October 2009, I got my first DDfav.me/d28jinh
I got it thanks to a very special friend, balorkin, who supported my work and was incredibly kind and nice to me.
One of the best people I've ever met here. <3 You're lovely Hon! <3

During the years I was able to meet other amazing people and collect great experiences, I got my second DD, won awards and met friends from all over the world and improved a lot in my art.
And without deviantART this would have never happened.

Many years ago, I was a small girl trying to find her way in the world of art and this place and the people that "live" here helped me a lot. So I want to do all I can to support those who are in the same situation: people with great talent that NEED to be noticed and loved and supported, so... those are the people I want to dedicate my story journal to.
And here are some of the most deserving artists that I've discovered recently. 
Give them lots of love.
Their art might not be technically perfect yet, but it's full of emotions, aspirations, love, effort and other amazing and strong feelings. I believe in these people and I know they can get even better and become guided for other future members of this growing and incredible community.

Also give lots of love to the staff of this splendid site, who made this community possible.
Because dA is awesome! <3

Happy b-day deviantART! <3
I LOVE YOU! :love:

◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊ :facebook: Naraku on Facebook ◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊
 ◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊ :twitter: Naraku on Twitter ◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊



After my dear friend :iconaigue-marine: (and a lot of other people before) asked me, how I make my appliques, I thought: hey, you work at a costume with this appliques again. I can make a tutorial!

And here you see step by step how I make on a easy way all my appliques.

.
.
.

What do you need:
- paper, pencil and scissors (maybe a rubber)
- fabric and thread
- Interfacing /Interfacing double-sided and a iron
- sewing mashine/ needle

How to work step by step:

STEP 1



Sew or compose your costume, as you need it.
If you know where the pattern to be sewn on it: take the fabric or the pattern for step 3 as a template

STEP 2



Take (old) paper, a sketch of the costume as an overview and pens for drawing

STEP 3



Copy the fabric or the pattern on the paper.
Then draw the desired pattern as a template onto the paper.

STEP 4



Cut and sort everything ^. ~

STEP 5



Reinforce your fabric with interfacing. It must not go off!

STEP 6



Draw with the template your pattern on the fabric and cut them roughly (!).

STEP 7



Set your machine to a zigzag. This can be nearly look like this.
Sew all the lines along the fabric. This can sometimes take a little longer. So be patient.

STEP 8



The pattern looks like this, once you've sewed it. Sometimes you have to iron it then.

STEP 9



Cut it out carefully. In this case you may not cut the seam, otherwise everything goes on.

STEP 10



Cut all the threads.

STEP 11



Place the pattern on the costume / the fabric. You can clue it or get pin up.
In double-sided interfacing just put it ironed, then it will not slip.
Sew a second time with the zigzag along the pattern.

STEP 12



TADAAAAAA your applique is done!

.
.
.

I hope you like it. If you have any questions, you can contakting me here or per note. ^.~

historic corset tutorial

Thu May 2, 2013, 12:55 PM
◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊ :facebook: Naraku on Facebook ◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊
◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊ :twitter: Naraku on Twitter ◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊


After serveral requests, I decided to upload a tutorial for my absinthe corset today. As you can see I used the same pattern for my steampunk corset dress Mademoiselle Émeraude Steam.

This tutorial shows an elaborate corset. Patterns can be found on the Internet at Burda / Simplicity or even online shops about historical patterns and corsets.
Many steps can be used for a simple corsage. The steps are noted with three hearts (❤ ❤ ❤).
A corsage tutorial will come this year too. You can find all information on my FB page.

And now Step by Step „How to make a historic corset":


Step 1 ❤❤❤



What materials do you need:

- Pattern of your choice
- Different fabrics (solid cotton, patterned fabric and as desired: taffeta)
- Thread, needles and scissors
- Eyelets
- Corset bone (more information in Step 9)
- various cords and ribbons


Step 2 ❤❤❤



First you copy the pattern on the fabrics and cut it out.
The corset requires 3 to 4 layers of fabric. We will be using a lot of boning. Consequently the material has to be able to carry a lot of weight. Through the many layers of fabric we prevent holes and rapid wear.

Tip: Draw all the lines and marks on the middle layers of fabric (shown here in white cotton).


Step 3 ❤❤❤



Divide the material into 2 categories:
Corset 1 – outer fabric (patterned fabric) with a center fabric (white cotton)
Corset 2 – inner fabric (taffeta) with a center fabric (white cotton)

Now you can pin each corset and sew all the pieces of fabric together. Here the painted lines on the center fabric (white cotton) will be helpful.
Just a hint: Corsets and some corsages have ALWAYS larger seam allowances.

In the end we have two corsets.




Step 4



In case that you haven't transfered all lines of the pattern onto the fabric - do it now.
Use a simple and long stitch and sew over these lines. No sealing or double step stitch required.

Tip: sew the lines ONLY on the inner fabric. (see Step 8)


Step 5



This step requires more time and attention.
Place the two corsets onto each other.
The seam allowances have to be opened. With an iron it's completely fix.

If the corset fits perfectly (seam to seam), then you can sew the right and left selvage together.
The upper side with the straps and the lower side with the curve remain open.


Step 6 ❤❤❤



To prevent the fabrics from shifting, pin the freshly stitched selvage and sew a small line.

In preparation for the eyelet and lacing, sewn 3 more lines. It is divided into:
Corset bone – eyelet – corset bone

Tip: Put a little piece of corset bone next to you for all lines. So you are sure that everything fits later.


Step 7



As in Step 6, lay all seams together. Sew directly on the seam everything together.
Now nothing can slip.


Step 8



Sew all lines along on the inner fabric. They are now seen on the outer fabric.
You can undo the older seam, if you want to.

Follow this line and sew step by step all so-called bone tunnel. The corset bones will be inserted in there.


Step 9 ❤❤❤



Bones has many variations and are very important for the corset.
Here are 3 types.

From top to bottom:
- fabric bone
- plastic bone
- metal bone

~ The fabric bone is available in any fabric store. But it's no good for a corset or a corsage.
There is a ribbon with a thin plastic / nylon threads.
The boning is weak and bends rather easily. It is also not possible to bend it into specific shapes or lines

~ The plastic bone is very stiff in the contrary to the metal bone. It can cut it with scissors and don't break or warp so easy. For a corsage or a corset it is ideal.
The more bones is taken, the more stiff will be the top. Advantage: it is cheaper and lighter than the metal bones.
Other variations can be found in wood / bamboo.

~ The metal bone is the most used boning. It is available as a strap or as a spiral spring strap (see picture). They are the plastic bone on the qualities very close.
Disadvantage: you need a tin snips, end caps and can be more expensive.
Advantage: they are flexible despite the weight, keep the most traction and remain in the bent form, if necessary.

I prefer plastic and metal. But it depends on the corset and the person who wears is.


Step 10 ❤❤❤



Cut the boning in the right length.
The important thing is: The corset is closed in the end (see the seam on the bottom selvage). To prevent needle breakage, the boning must be shorter than the length of the tunnel. At least one seam allowance above and below.

Do you cut off all bones (and possibly put the caps), then push it into the tunnel.
Close with a seam the bottom and top selvage. So the bones can't slip out.

Tip: Just take your thumb or forefinger as a measure tape.


Step 11 ❤❤❤



Time for a beautiful (useful) decoration Part 1:

Take a beautiful bias tape and sew it on to the fabric. Turn down the bias tape around the edge and sew it again.
Who can sew around the curve or is uncertain, may at any time to sew the bias tape by hand.

Note: Various bias tape tutorial will also follow this year.


Step 12 ❤❤❤



Beautiful decoration Part 2:

If you want, you can always sew beautiful laces, ribbons or other onto the bias tape.


Step 13 ❤❤❤



The final step!
Everything is sewn and the decorations are attached to the corsets. Up next we'll insert the eyelets.

Mark the places on which you'd like to insert the eyelets from the inside.
With a punch pliers, a nail scissors or an unstitcher you cut the holes.
Uses the eyelets and seals them.
You can use a tongs or a hammer.


Threaded into the cord and have fun!

Time for me: 2-3 days

Libertad de expresion

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 25, 2012, 2:35 PM
OK, muchos han dicho cosas de mi último journal y sólo debo dicir.

NO ESTOY DEPRIMIDA, NO ME AUTO COMPADEZCO Y ME IMPORTA UN PEPINO LOS QUE PIENSAN ESO PORQUE NO ES VERDAD

Me da igual si creen que tengo depresión o semejante porque muchos dirán que estos mensajes se han repetido. Porque no es cierto. Sólo estoy saturada.

Pero el tema es que estas semanas especialmente se han vuelto una serie de acontecimientos desafortunados uno tras otro y la impotencia que tenía de no poder hacer nada me lleva a desahogarme de alguna forma. Y si la única forma que conozco es dibujar y ni eso estoy haciendo bien simplemente estuve en un estado al borde de las lágrimas al escribir esto.

No puedo ser hipócrita y escribir de sucesos felices y fantásticos si simplemente yo no estoy bien. Por lo que han de saber qué me pasa por las personas que me mandan mensajes para saber por qué no actualizo nada. Así que estoy simplemente usando la "gran libertad de expresión en la internet" de la que todos presumen para poder manifestar mi malestar.

Algunos trollean escudándose con esa libertad y yo no puedo escribir que estoy triste?

Es eso justo?

Featured Artist - Bobby Driscoll

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 3, 2013, 12:43 PM


Best known to Disney fans as the voice of Peter Pan!







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 sentenced as a drug addict in 1961.

On his drug addiction:
"I had everything. I was earning more than $50,000 a year, working steadily with good parts. Then I started putting all my spare time in my arm. I'm not really sure why I started using narcotics. I was 17 when I first experimented with the stuff. In no time at all I was using whatever was available, mostly heroin, because I had the money to pay for it."

He managed to get rehabilitated by 1962, but Hollywood back in the day was less than forgiving. Because of his record as a convict and a drug addict, nobody would work with him. Dispirited and alone, he eventually died fundless in New York at the age of 31 - two children found his body in an abandoned tenement, and was buried as a "john doe" in a pauper's grave on Hart Island. His identity was discovered later on by fingerprinting.

"I have found that memories are not very useful. I was carried on a silver platter and then dumped into the garbage can."~ Bobby Driscoll, on his rise and fall in Hollywood.

Though his story had a less than happy ending, his life definitely had an impact on us. He brought joy and warmth to the screen whenever he was on it - animated or not. And, it serves us a valuable life lesson; don't become a slave to drugs, and if you know someone who has, don't give up on them.  





"A child lives in a world of its own, so, logically, a successful story for children must strike a chord in that world; possibly involve something he would like to do if he had the chance, like fly with his own wings or go down a rabbit hole, but above all, it must be something he can understand. Anything a child understands, chances are he will enjoy. However, everyone seems to enjoy these successful, so-called children's stories. For instance, you'll never meet a truthful person who says he doesn't like movie cartoons."~ Bobby Driscoll

Tutorial: Basic Cosplay Make-up

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 25, 2012, 7:09 AM
Basic Information:
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.


1. Preperations:
First of all I clean my skin and apply vanishing crème. It's always good to do so since wearing a lot of make-up is exhausting for one's skin. The vanishing crème will help to make your skin look more smooth and it's easier to apply the make-up. At least that's my experience.
Sometimes I do a peeling at the evening before a convention or a shooting to remove old skin. You can do it, but it's not a "must" and I do it in the evening because it's irritating the skin. So my skin can relax over night. Not to mention it saves time in the morning. There is already enough work to do with make-up, wigs and getting dressed.
Before applying make-up I put my hair into a bun and use a hair band to get the hair out of my face. It's okay to use a wig cap instead as well especially when you have to add fake lashes and hard make-up later. But honestly speaking I don't like it. Wig caps really hurt after some hours and I like them so stay off my head as long as possible. It depends on your choice if you put your hair away and how you do it.

I always start with putting my contacts in. I won't show you how to do it here and won't wear them during the tutorial. Please always be careful when putting contacts into your eye and let a doc show to you how to do it before wearing them the first time. You can put the contacts into your eyes after doing your make-up if you're good at putting them in. But be careful not to get make-up onto the contacts. This burns as hell and your eyes can get seriously damaged! After putting contacts in I give my eyes a little time to rest of about 10 minutes. I still have problems with putting them in when I worked all night to finish a costume and sometimes it takes me some tries to get them in. Especially when I'm wearing 16,2 mm circles for Madame Red. You should try if you need it or not and at this break into your time schedule if it's needed. Same goes for the process of putting the contacts in itself. Better get up half an hour earlier than having a drama because of getting to the shoot/convention later.
Next step I pluck my eyebrows. I have rather strong and dark eyebrows so I have to do it if I do don't want to look like a Neanderthal. You can do it if you want. Most times it's not necessary to do so if you have bright colored eyebrows but I recommend it if you want to color you eyebrows matching your wig color. I'll add a tutorial for this later as well.



2. Removing eye rings, red spots and so on:
Okay, this is the unmasked true me without any make-up or post processing. It's hard for me to show it, but well~ It can't be helped if I want to show what a little make-up can do.



As you can see I'm not that much of an outstanding beauty and far away from the pictures you might know of me. The area around my eyes is badly supplied with blood what causes big eye rings no matter what I do. To make them disappear I use camouflage. I tried a lot of make-up products from foundations to consealers but nothing worked until I found camouflage. I bought it online in a theater and movie make-up suppliers store. If you intent to buy something like this first try to buy it in a store nearby. Monitor settings can make the colors look different, so you might not get a 100% the color you see. It's better to see the colors directly with your own eyes and if possible on your own skin. If you are allowed to test it put it onto your face and not your hand palm or somewhere else since the skin color differs from face and hands/arms. Here in germany it's also possible to buy make-up for cosplayers at convention booths. Maybe this is the case in your country as well.

I apply the camouflage not only under my eye but on the eyelid as well. For me putting it onto the eyelid does way more magic than covering my eye rings. It makes my eyes look about 100% more refreshed as you can see in the picture.



Furthermore I apply the camouflage on my nasal wings and on every red palm and every red spot I see. If I go for a shooting while cold temperatures I apply a little camouflage to my nose as well to prevent it getting all red due to the cold. It's nothing worse than having to photoshop a nose from red back into your usual skin color. This should work with a common consealer as well.





3. Foundation:
I use liquid foundation but that's just what I can work best with. There are cream mousse, powders and sticks as well. You should go and try for yourself to find out what works best for you.
It's important to buy something that's matching your skin color. Make-up can give your skin a little reddish or orange skin sometimes so be careful. Always try to stay as close to your natural skin color as possible unless you plan characters with a lot darker or brighter skin color. If you use too dark make-up you might run into problems while blending it into your natural skin color. Make sure not to produce hard lines like in the picture below. It clearly shows you're using make-up and that's usually that you don't want.



I always try to blend my make-up at the neck (if I'm not wearing white clothes) and in the area of my ears to prevent make-up lines. For dark make-up I go down until I reach my clothes to prevent my neck and face to look different. To prevent it ruining a costume I use fixing spray from a make-up store. It's rather expensive and most likely only available in online stores, but it's rather helpful.

Since the effect from "applied camouflage only" and "camouflage + foundation" isn't that visible I go to the next step directly without a picture. It's powder. A big friend of cosplayers and photographers. It's not only making look skin less shiny, it's also fixing the make-up as such.
Usually camouflage should be fixed with powder directly after applying but I use camouflage and foundation together before I put powder over it. If I fix the camouflage before applying foundation it looks like I used cement. But it may work for you if you do it the usual way.



For applying powder you can use a brush or a sponge. It depends on your own choice what you use. Everyone is different, so use what works best for you.
Powder can regulate the outcome of color on your skin as well. Just a little, but it works. If you want it brighter or darker and don't have the needed make-up around or no time to completely redo your make-up you can try to lighten it up or darken it a little by using powder, rouge or even eye shadow (if nothing else is available). But if you use eye shadow make sure not to use something with glitter or metallic effects in it. It will most likely make you look a little weird unless you have a costume of starlight express or something like that.

Just to show you before and after again. It's not much I did but it really makes a big difference if you ask me.




Notes:
Always remember, just using make-up will not gurantee an awesome picture! A lot of pictures, may it be mine or from several other cosplayers, are a combination of make-up, well lighted photography AND post processing. A lot can be done by using refectors, flashs and editing programs like photoshop. There is a lot of unseen magic in pictures. No matter if it's in cosplay or advertisment/entertainment media.



That's all for now. Next tutorial will be "basic boy's make-up". If you think you need this tutorial some when and fear you might lose track of it you can fave it like every other deviation here at dA.
If you have questions feel free to ask in the comments and if you want to read the original german version of this go and visit my blog at Animexx.

Hope you enjoy the holidays :heart:
