How I did Noctis... work in progressTutorialHow I did Noctis... work in progress3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This time I'm gonna show you how I drew my newest drawing Noctis Lucis Caelum (you can see him below). Well, it's half 3D render and digital painting (when you see tutorial you'll get it). I used ZBrush and I modeled him there... I never used ANY (I really mean any) 3D program before, so when I found that I was like in 7 heaven
Noctis Lucis Caelum by tincek-marincek
So, I learned to use that program while I was modeling Noctis...literary. Hmm...maybe that's why I needed 10 hours in that program... anyway... tutorial and work in progress stuff (and much more) you can see on our official site tincek-marincek.com under Blog here. I hope you like it
Devil May Cry- Vergil confirmed as Nero's father!http://devilmaycry.org/community/threads/official-incoming-dmc-art-book-reveals-vergil-is-neros-father.15205/Devil May Cry- Vergil confirmed as Nero's father!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So apparently the newest DMC artbook confirms that Nero is Vergil's son, but from what I've been reading in that forum, a lot of plot ideas got mixed around, dropped, or simply unused, plot contradictions and timing contradictions.
I've taken Japanese for three years and although I've forgotten 90% of it, I'm still pretty familiar with the basics and understanding sentence possessives. In the first post when scrolled down to the bottom of it, it shows a picture with Japanese text with two white circles.
The first circle is Nero's name in katakana. The second circle is saying Vergil's with a possessive. So "Baajiru no..." and then something, something in kanji. I can't read kanji so the sentence would have to say something to the affect of using the japanese words for father being "otousan" or "chichi".

Con-Report: TRACON8 Tampere (Finland) + pics!Yay! A new con-report!Con-Report: TRACON8 Tampere (Finland) + pics!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This time me and Elffi were cosplay guests for TRACON in Tampere (Finland).
We had the duties to be judges for the World Cosplay Summit (WCS) preliminary Finland and we hosted a panel about "Cosplay around the world".
I debuted a new costume: Perona from One Piece <3!
So let's start with Saturday :3!
The building of Tracon is really big and pretty ^^. Also they had a really nice outside area next to a smaller lake .
I was the most excited for the World Cosplay Summit preliminary! We already had a pre-judging early in the morning. We were happy to have 13 really great teams. It was specially interesting to asked how they did certain parts. Some showed really outstanding techniques. I was
2011 Europe tripThis took forever but I'm finally getting down to blogging about it! I've been looking for someone to tour Europe with, but unfortunately schedules are hard to match and money doesn't come by easy. Been wanting to visit Europe for the longest time, and last year I thought, if I don't go now, I may never have the chance to go. So I made up my mind to recce on my own, and in two weeks I was off on a plane! I didn't plan to go overseas for my graduation trip, so I shall reflect and relive last year in place of that XD2011 Europe trip3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thoughts like "what the heck am I doing" did occur to me on the plane, but they were quickly taken over by the fear and excitement of exploring unknown lands 8D Since I was flying alone, next to me sat a Chinese lady who was working in Rome. We got to know each other a little better over the 13-hour flight, and she very kindly offered to drive me from the airport to my hostel ;v; I'm forever grateful towards her, as she made me feel safe and comfortable from the very start o
Commission Info (Points/Cash): CLOSED Clarifying this since many people seem to don't get it: if you want me to draw any kind of artwork for you, but you tell me "draw me a neko maid" or "draw my oc with a mage outfit" or anything like that I WILL CHARGE YOU EXTRACommission Info (Points/Cash): CLOSED3 years ago in Personal More Like This
That is because I'm not only working to do the artwork for you, but also a custom design!
So anything you want me to draw that doesn't have a VISUAL reference will cost you more! Please remember that! ;A;
Stuff like "draw my oc with this outfit *link* " is perfectly fine of course! As long as you give me an exact reference of what you want you won't be charged anything more!
Added a point payment option too! Remember, 1 EUR = 120
Also, added 25% discounts for commissions that include OCs you've adopted from me, or my own OCs (like a commission requesting your character hanging out with my character)
Hi again my kittens! <3
As I told you in my previous journal, I'm finally opening

Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!When my friends and I first heard of "that swimming anime" called Free!, this is pretty much what we expected:Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked. Although it started out that way, the more episodes we watched, the more we realized...
We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
I'd write more about how I feel about it but it would take up too much time and space over here, so here are a couple of posts that have already done the job well:

Chie- jacket making tutorialSorry I cannot use my camera to record this. It would be a lot simpler but sadly my camera has decided to go to camera heaven.Chie- jacket making tutorial2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Making this jacket was fairly easy and took me just the weekend to make. I needed something to do while I was listening to lectures for class lol.
First just let me say that the pattern I am showing was drafted by me. I have a basic jacket pattern that I cut up, added seam allowance, decided between side panels, ect.. That is why it looks all marked up lol. A pattern I would recommend to use for this is Butterick B5400. The jacket that is in blue is a good because it has the collar. I am pretty sure the fabric for the Jacket I used is a Gabardine. I went for something that had a bit of stretch in it because Chie's jacket is a bit tight fitting.
The front - Is pretty self explanatory. I did curve in the si

Humans Becoming Robots, Robots Becoming HumanHumans Becoming Robots, Robots Becoming Human3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
:icontechgnotic: by techgnotic
On March 1, 2012 the Nevada DMV issued the first license for a Google Driverless Car. The idea behind this innovation is that one day soon new technology will drive cars safer and more skillfully than humans, thus saving lives and billions of dollars in car crashes. How well this idea catches on is a bit questionable, given the powerful “romance” of driving one’s car, but it’s certainly an indicator of things to come in the daily intersection of human and artificial intelligence and mobility. There have always been those who have dreamed of stepping into a mechanical exo-skeletal-type “suit” and letting the engineering do the work, insta

Cthulhu is Still Calling
Written By techgnotic
Having been thinking a lot about the origins of our globally held Dragon mythos in a recent article Reptilicus Infernicus, I couldn’t help but notice the Cthulhu legend was always lurking at the edges of my mind as I was researching the subject matter.
The Enemy at the Gates, the “Other”, forever lurking in the darkness and plotting an invasion most evil and an enslavement most hideous, is probably the original seminal “narrative” that was born when humans first acq

Living Rainbow Taking Flight
The vibrant digital paintings of alicexz are fiery, emotional, and incredibly memorable.
The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.

I believe in deviantART. Which is to more accurately say I believe in the concept and the reality of the deviantART community.
When in contemplation of the eternal wellspring that is the deviantART project and how it has become the engine keeping my heart and mind on a full burn as I strive to be an upstanding member of the community as well as a helpful architect and eager participant in the conversation -- my thoughts inevitably settle upon my attempts to define my concept of Gratitude.

JKJK HAHAHA so HEY HI SUP Y'ALL
I'm converting my files for printing now so since I have some time, why not a journal entry
Yeah so I was stalking looking at Mato(matosauce)'s deviantart and kinda thought of how long we've been cosing together LOL.
We got to know each other sometime in 2011, and our first photoshoot that same year (it was Matryoshka) and we've moved on to Happy Synthesizer, Bakemonogatari, Durarara!! and as of late, Psychedelic Dreams (affiliated to DRRR!!)
:U I mean to me, it's considered a lot already, taking away 2012 in which the both of us had major exams but managed to cram in the Happy Synthesizer photoshoot anyway
And then I moved on to stalking Dokuro (D0KURO) , who I've known since... 2010. She just finished her major exams last year, but thinking about it we've only cosplayed together er.... twice? LOL. I guess it's hard to find a common interest between us but regardless she's also been a great, great friend and cospartner.

So, what does this mean?
Well I REALLLLLLY SUPER DOOPER QUOOPER want to write a Dante/OC/Vergil story. (desperately so) SOOOOO, I decided to remake my Black as Ebony series since I've been meaning to for a long while now (I think close to half a year >.> )

Before I even start to write anything, I'm going though and taking note of specific plot important info. So It'll follow the same plot line, but everything else I'm going to gut and start over. Maybe fill in some plot holes, add new scenes, add new subplots, new characters or involve other characters more, lengt
