Tsukino-Con 2015!Hello there, all the peoples of the interwebs.Tsukino-Con 2015!9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Well, another Tsukino-Con has come and gone, but was it ever a great one. I had so much fun meeting some nice new people, and reuniting with old con buddies. One of the highlights was when my friends at OppositeCosplay were invited as special guests! It was really exciting for them, since it was their first time being invited to a con. They did some good panels, including How to Make a Onesie and Intro to Lolita Fashion (which were both very informative). It was also just plain awesome to hang out with them, because they really are wonderful, friendly people. I also filmed my first cosplay showcase videos! Got clips of lots of my friends, such as KingdomZelaybli, Myelix, AnyaPanda, Fantasyrhia, Yukibun, TheRiverStudio, and many more. I tried really hard to make the videos look nice, but of course it's my first time so my homemade camera stabilizer skills aren't perfect. XP Nonetheless, I think they turned out really w

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!)

This part of the tutorial is mostly thanks to my wife chibinis-chan who did the modeling for it.
She is doing her eye make-up after applying basic make-up like shown before. She will show you one make-up with different colors. I'm holding this tutorial very short with just the steps as such because I already wrote all the tips for applying in the first part of this tutorial.
First she is using black kajal to draw a line on the eyelid and under the waterline of her right eye. The line under her eye is about 1/3 of the complete length of the waterline.
After this she uses brown eye shadow to blend it a lit

So uh, private post. I'm just gonna jump to the chase and I'm gonna write this just once.
As alot of you may have seen or heard Josefin and I are not together anymore. She found someone else so I broke up with her. That's the veryvery short version of it. It was mildly speaking a bad and complicated breakup. I wont give out any details because it is no longer important, I just want to say that I will continue cosplaying all of the characters that I cosplayed with her with other people. They did represent us in a way but after everything that happened they dont anymore. I still love those pairings and characters so I wont give them up. We are not parts of eachothers lives anymore in any way.
She is no longer a part of JarofClouds and that is something the whole group decided together and it was not just because she and I broke up. Alot of other stuff happened between her and some of the

Let's make something clearYes I do make some boudoir/ pin up types of pictures sometimes. While some like it, others don't which is normal and I don't mind people not liking what I do. That's fine.Let's make something clear2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But going as far as pointing out I should get "brutally raped" for having some cleavage in pictures in several comments I received is FAR FAR FAR from being okay. So what, we regressed to the point where people are dumb enough to think that when a women is abused it's her fault, she was asking for it? Well no, it's not. And it never is. Rape is a very serious topic that shouldn't be use like this to comment on someone work simply because you don't like it and are too brain dead to form a valid critique.
Not only will you be banned from my page for writing stuff like that, but you will also be reported. You never know who you will hurt and to what point stupid comments like this will affect a person.

While your are not going to get a full length sequel, I will give you a little treat.
I'm going to make a short 10-15 page blurb of what happened after the end of the comic.
Before anyone gets too excited, this won't be released until fall 2015, but at least it's something to look forward to.
It will all be released at once, not in page stages.
So to sum it all up....
SHIFT is coming back, fall 2015, with a (short) after-story

A couple of weeks ago, we attended an event called Fantasy Quest 2. (The very first Fantasy Quest was when we cosplayed Harry Potter characters.)
It was a pretty special day for us because four years ago, we had our first shoot and bonding day with Ysabel SavingSunlight at the venue, Fernwood Gardens.
We've been really into Adventure Time, so many months ago we decided we'd do AT cosplay, and that Fantasy Quest would be a fun opportunity to do so. It feels weird how we had been looking forward to this event for ages, and now it's over!

1.) To start off, what is your favorite medium and tools to use?
I have a really old and weak computer so I prefer traditional tools Ilove my watercolours(http://www.dickblick.com/products/pelikan-watercolor-and-gouache-paint-sets/) and black pen(http://www.depot.hu/office/product_info.php?manufacturers_id=70=ZEBRA&products_id=2642).
2.) When you draw, do you plan everything out first, or do you just see where the drawing takes you?
I've tried to be spontaneous ,but I failed at it Mostly my drawings are born from many many composition sketches
3.) On average, how long do you spend on a drawing?
It depends on how
