What the winner will get out of this contest:

2. the winner's full name will be in the credits.
3. This character will be copyrighted primarily to this game, you are allowed to use the artwork for your portfolio, but may be a bit complicated if you want to sell him/her off to a new client. Details of copyright can be discussed with the winner.

How difficult it always is, to get stones for a costume in the right color, size and shape.
That's why I uploaded this tutorial today: How to make gems.
How to work step by step:
What materials do you need:

Notes on Posing and Make-up for Photo-shootsDISCLAIMER: This tutorial is by no means the absolute truth. It's just a compilation of personal observations and internet/ book resources. There will be exceptions to the rules and not all of the things written below may work for you. Use your own judgement to make the choices that work best for you. These being said, enjoy the boring wall of text belowNotes on Posing and Make-up for Photo-shoots3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There already are many useful tutorials about basic make-up and posing, on dA and over the net, so I won't repeat what has already been said in them. I recommend reading them before reading my notes. Links below:

New rules (please read)So, I've heard it already often, from many sides... and I thought about it since a long time too.New rules (please read)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Now I've even got someone who told me directly about it and I decided to change our rules.
I know some of you might think that's unfair, but I think that many of you will agree with me.
There are lots of edited screenshots from the actual FT show, with the original characters (like Lucy, Natsu, Erza, Gray and co.) over colored and changed into some OC's.
Don't understand me wrong now, I don't have anything against OC's (okay I am not a big fan of OC x any character of the real show but yeah... I won't hate on you because of that xD) actually I think OC's are great
BUT I myself don't like these edits. They make me and I think many others too feel like their work isn't really appreciated due to the many likes and/or followers that these people gain with edited screenshots, just because the pictures don't have "mistakes" (in anatomy as example) in them.
And as I said there were lots of peo

Tips for Starting Commissions I was thinking about my last journal, where I asked why everyone and their cat wanted to sell commissions so badly. I recieved some really insightful answers.Tips for Starting Commissions4 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I also had a lot of people asking me "How much should I charge for my work?"
I'll add a Disclaimer right here in front, as for whatever reason, something always offends someone :iconstunplz: . So I'll start off by saying, this is just my personal journal, and I'm just one person who has some experience with this. I'm not making a judgment on who should sell what, just writing some things I have personally learned along the way.
Well that's out of the way :iconyodawgplz:
So most artists starting off go through a period of confusion on how to price work. They get a lot of suggestions, or theories from well-meaning people such as:
"Artists always undervalue themselves. Don't charge less than minimum wage per hour"
This is true, and I agree. However, unfortunately,
