Internet Etiquette (Edited with critique advice)Some people brought up some pretty important points, so I've added some additional information about critiques below!Internet Etiquette (Edited with critique advice)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Something that's been bugging me a bit lately is how the DA community has sorta changed over the years (and not in a good way). People are more bold and will post whatever's on their mind, and while that can be a good thing in some scenarios, I feel that people oftentimes say things that they might not realize will hurt someone's feelings.
I generally get a lot of positive feedback, and it really helps! It's always great to know that someone likes my work, and it keeps me motivated to keep going with this hobby. However, I'm still a human being, and negative criticism can hurt me just as much as anyone else. I'm not sure what it is, but the amount of really negative comments has increased these past couple years, and it really discourages me from even using this website anymore. Many times I've considered just disabling comments entirely, but I feel that would

How I cosplayed the cast of Free! sort-of-tutorialGroup cosplay, forever alone style! Yeah, that's all me.How I cosplayed the cast of Free! sort-of-tutorial11 months ago in Personal More Like This
In this post, I'll get into how I did each one!
Intro, and some bad old pictures
For those of you who have the patience to read for some extra info!
When I started cosplaying, I didn't think makeup was such a major part of it. I was so hesitant to even put eyeliner because I'd think, "This character is a guy, I shouldn't look like I'm wearing makeup!" And I guess I was silly enough to think I looked enough like the characters I chose without doing anything to my face?
I can't find more pictures of my really old cosplays (which is just as well, hahah) from the time I didn't want to use makeup apart from these:
I cosplayed as Haku from Naruto. I don't remember wearing any makeup for this. It doesn't show too well on these pictures but I saw some others where the natural redness of my lips made it look like I was wearing lipstick even if I wasn't. I felt it made me look more feminine than I should. Haku is still a guy after al

Photography Tutorial 1 - BackgroundsBackgroundsPhotography Tutorial 1 - Backgrounds4 years ago in Personal More Like This
For the first lesson of photography, we’re going to start with BACKGROUNDS. The background is an important part of the picture, whether or not the main focus is on the doll/subject. No one wants to see random objects, people or a mess in the background. Do not ever assume that shallow depth of field or bokeh will ‘hide’ away the mess in the background in a blur. It is still possible to make out a human head or arm in the blurred background.
DO NOTE: This tutorial is extremely IMAGE HEAVY. Most photo examples are contributed by us, while some are credited to the respective owners. So all necessary photo copyrights still RETAIN. DO NOT USE ANY OF THE PICTURES OR ANY PART OF THE TUTORIAL WITHOUT OUR EXPLICIT WRITTEN PERMISSION.
Granted the fact that not many of us stay in places with a whole variety of outdoor locations to shoot or simply have the

I am young and oldI was walking around Canadian Tire with my niece the other day. We were on the hunt for just a small pool, and we were running around the store, having some fun, you know. So we turn around a corner and I see this guy walking down the aisle with a giant lizard riding on his shoulder. It was NOT SMALL. I went up to him and asked if it was actually real, and he said yes. And then he came closer and he says, "His name is Spike, and he's really friendly. You want to pet him?" He bends down and lets my niece pet his friendly lizard, and then I got to pet the lizard. It was quite awesome.I am young and old1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Question regarding COMMISSIONS! :3Hi againQuestion regarding COMMISSIONS! :31 year ago in Personal More Like This
Since I ran out of money and don't know where to start resuming my life this year I would like to ask something:
Would anyone be interested in Sketch Commissions like these?
Their maximum size is 3000 pixels high or wide.
One layer for the shadows.
15 USD for the hips up and 20 USD for the fullbody and
Paypal free of charge
It would be kinda like, you only send the money worth your drawing and I don't mind paypal taking their fee from it. That way it would make it a lot easier for the commissioner. Everyone always feel bothered if their payment will be delivered right from paypal. So I decided to do it that way. Paypal takes their bite and I'll keep the rest of it.
Would anyone be interested in that?
I think I won't offer colored stuff for a while since I'm studying a good way to paint without making
