Last year I visited a craft fair and discovered in the paper decoration / paper crafting a super great new material.
Maybe some of you know it.
But here in german Cosplay scene, and perhaps also for many other countries it's really a novelty.
It can be used for paper decoration, for gemstones, paint and much more.
In this tutorial I made a kind of decoration for costumes versions/ setting f
Bullshit myths about feminism.I know, I know. Going all ideological on you guys is a little a-typical for me, and perhaps (I hope) I'm preaching to the choir. But I've been noticing a lot of negativeness around the word and (more importantly) the ideology of feminism, and a lot of that seems to be based on misinformation or misunderstanding. This might not be the best place to fix any of that, but I felt like chipping in anyway. It beats doing nothing, right?Bullshit myths about feminism.9 months ago in Personal More Like This
So, here's some of my "favorite" bullshit myths:
Bullshit Myth: Feminists think girls are better than guys.
Feminism isn't Misandry! Feminists don't hate guys, or think women are better than guys. In fact, that idea is the other opposite of what it's really about : equality.
When extreme feminism turns into Misandry it stops being feminism, as they are fighting against the very thing feminism hopes to accomplish. (I believe these people a tiny minority but I won't deny it exists; there's nutcases on every team after all).
Guys are just
Bolin Cosplay Tutorial----UPDATE----Bolin Cosplay Tutorial3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have uploaded the pictures of the main pattern pieces for the jacket to my scrapbook. Take a look if you are having troubles modifying your own pattern! (I couldn't find the pattern for the collar, I drew it on a piece of paper somewhere and I think it is gone now... sorry!)
I have had a lot of requests asking how I made the jacket for my cosplay, so I decided I would write a quick overview of what went into making it. I will not go into excruciating detail, but if you would like more help on any particular section, please leave a comment and I would be happy to elaborate!
STEP 1: Picking fabric
Print lots of good colored reference shots for yourself (or carry a smartphone with you) before heading to the fabric store. It goes without saying that you want to pick fabric with color that closely resembles your source, but it is also important to take into consideration things like the thickness and flexibility of yo

I need help.Some of you might already know (though FB). I've suddenly lost my sister as she suddenly died a week ago in her sleep.I need help.11 months ago in Personal More Like This
This came as a big shock and leaves all of us sad/angry/confused. She was a kickass rockchick and no way old enough to leave this world.
She had a daughter (my niece) for who'm this indecent hits the hardest.
As if losing someone isn't one of the most unfair feelings in the world so is the technical stuff that comes with it.
Not being prepared for paying for a funeral is one of those technicalities that in no way helps such an awful event.
So that's where I could use your help.
I'm willing to sell all sorts of things to get as much money together as possible.
So I'm temporary opening up more affordable commissions and offering 1 and a half hour feedback sessions for cheap.

Alien Isolation Q&A with bradwright
Brad Wright, longtime deviant in the dA community, steps into the shoes (space boots) of Giger and Moebius as a concept designer for the Alien Isolation videogame. The game reportedly marks a return to the terror of the original “Alien” film in which scaring the audience to death was the goal, rather than the uncorking escalating levels of defensive firepower that defined the sequels.

Cosplay Friday: Avengers Assemble!

First introduced by Marvel in 1963, The Avengers was Jack Kirby and Stan Lee’s superheroic response to the success of DC Comics’ Justice League of America.
In the original comic the founders of the superhero team were Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Ant–Man, and The Wasp who came together to defeat the evil god Loki. The 2012 live–action Avengers movie loosely based on Marvel

Nonviolence: The Only Road to Freedom
By Martin Luther King Jr.
Whole article here: http://teachingamericanhistory.org/library/index.asp?document=1426
Selected quotes from the article:
"I am convinced that for practical as well as moral reasons, nonviolence offers the only road to freedom for my people. Violence as a strategy for social change in America is nonexistent. All the sound and fury seems but the posturing of cowards whose bold talk produces no action and signifies nothing."
"It is always amusing to me when a Negro man says that he can't demonstrate with us because if someone hit him he would fight back. Here is a man whose children are being plagued by rats and roaches, whose wife is robbed daily at overpriced ghetto

Why equipment doesn't matter all that muchOh god, I wanted that Wacom Intuos tablet so badly.Why equipment doesn't matter all that much1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I was 16 years old at that time. I had already seen so much amazing art on the internet for the last few years. Digital art, to be precise. And I wanted to be able to do that as well. I had a computer, I had installed Photoshop. The only thing that I didn't have was money. I was completely broke. Note: it's 2004 we're talking about, here. 10 years ago (yeah, I'm old) when computers still costed a fortune and one almost had to take an extra mortgage in order to be able to pay a tablet. Back then, the average Intuos tablet costed as much as the average computer; a whole damn lot of money.
I had already been drawing for years, back then.
I occasionally scanned my drawings. But as my scanner was utter crap (all scanners where, back then), my preferred medium was pencil (that never does well with scanners) and I wasn't that good with adjusting colors in Photoshop... most of my drawings ended in utter digital disappointment.
Believe in yourself! :)I’ve been receiving a lot of notes this week with the same message. People are thanking me because I gave them a llama/fav/watch. But those persons also say something which makes me feel bad. They tell me that they don’t deserve it because I am a ‘better’ artist. They are also afraid to upload something because they think nobody will like it.Believe in yourself! :)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
A long time ago I was like that too. I was convinced that I couldn’t draw at all. I was afraid to upload my work on deviantART. But one day I said ‘whatever’ and I uploaded one of my artworks. A small amount of people actually started to like it! I also got a lot of negative feedback and really harsh comments. It made me sad to read comments like that. But I kept practising a lot, instead of giving up, and I learned something important from it: use negative feedback to become better and enjoy the positive feedback.
It’s true that some artists have more talent but it doesn’t mean y

This was a drawing challenge from :iconSenshiStock: and :iconmostlyguystock:!
Hands and feet are pretty hard to draw. Lots of artists struggle with them! Even when other things come naturally, hands and feet can still be quite a problem. The best way to get better at drawing hands and feet is to study them!
The Challenge: Sketch or draw 50 feet AND 50 hands from reference photos or life.
Deadline: The deadline has passed for this challenge, but you can still participate and make yourself a better artist!
You can post them as one giant post, in groups, one at a time, however you want! But please make a FOLDER in your gallery and put them all in there then send me a link to the folder. (If you do one submission with ALL of them at once, then you don't need the folder.)

'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi
