Elisa (aka spotted) steps out from behind the scenes as one of our intrepid Today Page senior editors to contribute her appreciation of “The Little Mermaid.” We hope it will be the first of many contributions to come, another hidden talent having been revealed by this longtime DeviantArt special projects manager.
It was 25 years ago that a redheaded mermaid made a splash in theaters ushering in a new era for the identity of the Disney princess.
So I'm turning 18 tomorrowAnd I just wanna thank you all, every single one of you, from people who followed me since I was 12, supporting me and making me want to continue drawing, people who gave me amazing critiques to help me improve, people who made me draw when I wanted to quit.

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

Some More Polymer Clay TipsBack by popular demand, I have gathered more polymer clay tips for you to use to improve your pieces!

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.

Hello Everyone!! How are you all!?
Since I've opened art commission. (Now I closed it for a while.) And I got good feedback. I'm really glad.
(Because of you all, Thank you very much.) But now I have to study hard at universities. (I have 2 unis at the same time) So I need a will to make me feel better while I'm studying.
Only doing commissions is not enough. Because I love to draw images so much. Yet I have some new drawing skill to present.
And finally, I've been here for 1 year. I think it's good for me to make a drawing contest.
I hope you don't mind. ^^
At least, you all can get my sketch of your oc for free. There're drawing contest and raffle too. ^^
Ok...Let's start then.
The title is clear. It is 'Drawing my OC' Contest. But the reason why I named 'Help me design OC' is that
The New Profile TabsAs part of an initiative to make deviantART more user-friendly and clearer, tabs on the Profile Page have received a visual and functional uplift!The New Profile Tabs2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The tabs on Profile Pages (Gallery, Prints, Favourites, and Journal) have been visually improved for consistency, cleanliness, and an overall up to date appearance. Navigation elements have been moved to the left column of the page, and the placement of major elements of each tab have been aligned so that the transition from one tab of one's Profile to another is more smooth, natural, and clean.
In addition, when viewing tabs of your own Profile, you can easily add to that tab! The Gallery tab prompts you to submit artwork, the Prints tab prompts you to submit a Print, and the Journal tab prompts you to write a Journal entry!

Vocaloid JBF Flower Wreath + Ciel lenses, etc.Jin's Flower Wreath ProcessVocaloid JBF Flower Wreath + Ciel lenses, etc.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sometime last May, Kat moonlightflight and I cosplayed our favorite Vocaloid song, "Just Be Friends".
Their outfits seem simple at a glance, but that actually makes things more complicated sometimes. Hahah. Despite Luka's dress looking like something you could probably find in a mall, Charmie yaoiangel14 made the dress from scratch exactly as it looked in the artwork, just for Kat moonlightflight. Kat and I also did our best with the part of their outfits that had the most amount of detail (which also happens to be our favorite parts) the flower wreaths.
I have some pictures of the progress of my wreath, so I thought I'd share them. This probably isn't the best method of going about this, but this is how I did mine and I found it pretty easy. (I wish I could have taken more photos or a video, but to be honest I wasn't quite sure I'd pull this off at first. Hahah!)

The Complicated Art of Keeping It SimpleThe Complicated Art of Keeping It Simple1 year ago in Personal More Like This
In many people’s mind, cosplay is most often related to complicated costumes, armors, impressive props, out-of-this world creatures and other visually stunning elements. But what about those characters who are depicted in casual clothes, with casual hairstyle and nothing out of ordinary to present at the first sight?

TMNT Age Orderi really enjoy thinking seriously about certain aspects of TMNT, so i figured i'd talk about one that i've always considered pretty interesting. below are my personal opinions, so please don't feel that you have to agree with me.TMNT Age Order10 months ago in Personal More Like This
in my opinion, the age order from eldest to youngest goes: Leo, Donnie, Raph, Mikey
i know this isn't a very common opinion, but i'll give my reasoning for it.
1) simply put, the theme song always states it. there's never been a theme song where the boys have been introduced in any other order than the one above. of course, that may be because their names sound best that way in sequence. but it's still a little strange Donnie would be introduced before Raph if he were the younger. (edit: thanks to all the people that informed me of the one theme song where they switch up the order. i totally forgot about that one )
2) sibling behavio

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
