1k Watcher Giveaway!1k Watcher Giveaway!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I finally hit 1k watchers today! I said I'd do a giveaway if I ever got to 1000 watchers and so here I am. Of course every giveaway will have a few rules and here are mine:
You must be watching me!
The winner will receive one plushie of their choice.
Plushie can be a sitting mare, a standard mare, a standard stallion, or a filly.
If you prefer beanies or parasprites I'm sure we can work something out!
No Princesses, Alicorn OCs, draft horse stallions, changelings, etc.
No outfits or accessories with a few exceptions like a hat for AJ or bow for Apple Bloom.
International winners will be asked to pay shipping which will likely run between $40-$50 depending on the country.
I will inform the winner via DA note and they will have 48 hours to respond before I choose a new winner.
I will draw the winner one week from Friday (so on January 18th) using a random number generator to select someone from my watcher list.
I will choose one
The Disney Vault- The fucking palace petsHey guys! So I got a lot of stuff pending, the first thing being my 'How to Train Your Dragon?' review which was requested by a fellow follower and my Christian Grey analysis for my 'Fifty Shades of Grey' blog. However, I need to rant about something at the moment because through my 'Disney Princess' research I found something truly horrifying. I was open to give this franchise the benefit of the doubt, but when I stumbled upon this I was absolutely certain that this franchise has reached a new low. I present to you; the Palace Pets.The Disney Vault- The fucking palace pets1 year ago in Personal More Like This
These abominations and crimes against creativity are Disney's answer to 'My Little Pony' and the 'Littlest Pet Shop' success (notice how most of the Palace Pets are ponies). Each of these bastards were carefully constructed to appeal to little girls by adding a shit ton of sparkles, ribbons, tiaras and CUTIE MARKS (I kid you not). The worst part of all of this? a) They talk, b) THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE CANON in the Disney Princess Franchi
Meet Terezka, baby fox with heartbreaking storyHello!Meet Terezka, baby fox with heartbreaking story4 years ago in Personal More Like This
People, I had SO amazing day yesterday!
The weather prognosis was very bad, but finally, the day was sunny and wonderful.
I woke up at 4:30 AM to get to Prague, where I met my friend BlueFox-cz. Together, we travelled to ZOO Děčín, where we saw babies of Máa and Tomáek, two foxes we know very well (BlueFox-cz was the one who took Tomáek to the ZOO in his car. And our friends were those who saved and rised Máa). Kits were cute, but already quite big. We spent few hours in the ZOO, watching baby wild cats, funny squirrels, a running wolf and of course, the foxes.
Then we moved to one wild-preserve. Our friends were given a baby fox!
Myslivci... Well, who are "myslivci"? There is no English tranlastion for this Czech word. Myslivci are Czech hunters, but in fact, they are supposed to CARE for the forest and all the animals. But in the Czech republic, they mostyl have a bad reputation - not because they kill and ea

So its about time I had a contest, no? I have a few more planned, but this one is spur of the moment. It will be a more mature themed contest, aimed a gore and violence. Most contest don't allow things like that, but I take this as a good opportunity for people to practice their skills.
This contest allows both human, animal, and anthro artists!
Draw any of the characters listed below doing something violent. Bar fights, random homicidal rages, it all goes. Doesn't have to be bloody, either. Someone can punch a wall, flip a table, yell at another person. Just someone growling and snarl

So we went to Toycon last Saturday and as usual I... didn't really get to take pictures of toys and stuff. It was so crowded around the merchandise hall that I couldn't stop and take photos because people were constantly threading through and shoving. It was like a river of people with an actual current, hahah! Sometimes I'd find a friend to chat with but we'd eventually be pulled apart by the tide, it was kind of funny.
I wanted to wear something simple and comfortable so I posted on my Facebook that I would wear my old Ichigo cosplay in his Karakura High uniform. The Bleach manga is so crazy now that it just made me miss the days when Bleach was simple.
I think this is the last decent picture of myself that I have wearing this, and it was taken ages ago.
And here it is on me again, with a new wig, better contact lenses, better wig styling and cosplay makeup skills (somewhat), and Kon plush that was give

I don't usually draw erotic, racist, offensive things – well, you can ask me about it, but I'm pretty sure price is going to be a bit higher, also it's possible I'll refuse.
Point commissions are possible in the future – I'm sorry, but not now.

I love cosplay for quite some time, I think cosplay is also a kind of fanart in a more realistic from.
I always feel that cosplay deserve more attention and favorite in dA,
So here I'd like to feature some of my personal favorite Avatar cosplayers with their best cos photos.
I know there are lots of amazing Avatar cosplay out there, but I can't collect them all.
The cosplayers I featured here should have their own dA account and have at least 3 pieces photoshots of the chatarcter in their gallery. I love their works not only because they represent the appearance well, but also I saw the spirit of the characters.
More than welcome to check their homepage by click their icon/Avatar.
So here we go!!~

Saber WIP: many photos *_*~ (ECG)Hey people,Saber WIP: many photos *_*~ (ECG)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
sry for being so late with updating you with my latest BIG project.
I'm working on this costume since January and finally I see the end of the long tunnel coming XD.
I wanna show you my now finished Saber Gift Figure armor!
If you don't know that version, you can see the reference here ---> http://www.ncsx.com/2009/012609/fate_stay_saber_gift.htm
If you like what you'll see please visit my facebook artist page as well ;D. There are always ALL progress photos form the stuff I am working on ^.^ ->>> http://facebook.com/calssara.cosplay
well let's start with the raw armor parts, completely unpainted.
I used WOBLAS FINEST ART as my material. It's a thermoplastic material with a mix out of plastic and wood. It's close to Wonderflex, but thicker, more durable and it's easier to make round shapes l shoulders, knees and chest plates. You can also melt the material together and use it as thermoplastic modeling clay!
This is my VERY first armor and even a bloody begin

Don't use those crappy Sculpey or Fimo glosses for your creations. Their expensive as hell, you only get a tiny bit in a jar, and their usually very gloopy and annoying to apply. Do yourself a favour - go to the hardware store and ask for "Varathane". This is found in the paint department with all the wood stainers and such. Make sure you buy the WATERBASED formula, in GLOSS not semi-gloss. This stuff sells for about $7.00 for a 946mL tin and you will not need to buy anymore gloss for a very long time. This stuff works wonders - it may be for wood, but this stuff has IPN technology which means Interpenetrating Polymer Network which means it's going to soak into your clay, adhere well, and make your clay creations damn spiffy looking.

I always assumed that all sites were pretty equal,
but I recently have been, and still am, dealing with a dispute form a contact website,
they have broken their our rules but still refusing to refund the purchase,
and because of the way they worded the product paypal is refusing to step up.
I'm pretty burned,
and I know others have been screwed over,
or have had major problems from dealing with people online.
As well as people who have had amazing experiences.

If you are able to understand German you can go to my Animexx weblog and read it there :3 Unfortunately dA doesn't support embedding my pics into the text so I had to put them directly over/under the text. Sorry for that!
I'm just showing you what works for me, so this is a "you can try this" and not a "this is the only way you can do it".
As you might know wigs are made out of plastic fibers. Plastic is a heat bendable material, so this is the essence of the both methods I will show you. Styling your wig with heat will also work for curling it, making spikes and so on. Please be careful whenev
