Season EnderYellow~! Its been awhile since I made a write-up for my gallery (more than a year?).Season Ender1 year ago in Personal More Like This
2013 has been a very busy year for me because of work and freelance (mobile app development) --- causing me to hibernate in photography for more than seven (7) months.
Aside from work, my favourite lens (Tokina UWA) got himself some fungus and my EOS 1000D got injured (like hot-shoe problem and sensor dust) --- as a result, I end up rejecting every invitation because I don't have any gear to use on --- and it took me awhile to send it to a server centre because of tight schedule
On a brighter side, I think this incident is nice because I still have some awful backlogs to catch-up with from 2012.
PICKING A NEW CAMERA
SO FAST FORWARD: Finally I got myself an editing device (a Macbook Pro for obvious reasons) and a new camera (Fuji X100S) because of my freelance.
Lots of my friends are asking me :
"Why pick a non-interchangeable camera…?"
"Why pick X100S..?"

Site Update: Staff Retreat, .Art, deviantMEETsIn this week's Site Update, we don't have any publicly visible changes, as our Devious Technology (dT), Product, and Product Marketing teams are all still at a staff retreat!Site Update: Staff Retreat, .Art, deviantMEETs3 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
At the beginning of the week, the dT team worked on improving our internal development tools to increase efficiency. Then, on Wednesday, we let any staff members at the retreat pitch fun and exciting ideas for deviantART features that could be built in two days. After each feature idea was pitched, everyone from dT chose which projects they'd like to work on. Throughout the year, engineers primarily work on projects that are assigned to them, so sometimes it's important to turn the tables and let them choose projects in which they're most passionate and excited about.
The purpose of these two-day "hackathons" is to build and demonstrate a proofs of con

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:
- resin and hardener
- tinting paint
- cups and spoons/ chopsticks to stir
- maybe a scale
- silicone mold for/ of stones (I bought it on etsy)
- aluminium foil
Manga Studio 5 Ex reviewI have a chance to test out the new Manga Studio 5 Ex before Smith Micro launch it at SDCC this year. In Japan this is known as CLIP STUDIO from CELSYS, the same people behind Comics Studio/ Manga Studio. The layout of Manga Studio 5 pretty similar to ver4. I get used to it pretty quick. The new watercolor and oil paint brush are the major new function.Manga Studio 5 Ex review1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I import a line drawing from MS4Ex to MS5Ex and try out the new paint brush. The brush engine is much better then the old version. No more brush lagging when using bigger brush size. This drawing I working on is 11 x 8.5 @ 600dpi. Using brush range between 50 to 100 without problem. The paint brushes mimic the real brush quite well. It picks up the color already on paper and blend in the new color just like traditional watercolor brush did. The new layer blend mode is similar to Photoshop, multiply, screen, overlay, color burn and color dodge, etc are all included.

I feel kind of bad that at all the big conventions like AX or Fanime, I am always so busy that I don't actually get to have a real conversation with anyone, but at a small con like Kintoki, I really get to talk and know people so if you're in the Sacramento, California area this weekend, come by my booth and hang out! And I was thinking that we could all get dinner together on either Saturday or Sunday night (July 27th/28th) after the hall closes I got to have dinner with some friends I met at AX and it was a lot of fun. I hope to meet and hang out with lots of new friends at Kintoki-con as well!
Also, if your interested in creating digital artworks like this one, or just how to be involved in the community, I will be host hosting a Digital Illustration panel with Kaze-Hime and Long Vo this Saturday and an Anime, Art, and Activism panel this Sunday I will also be in the Dealers Hall area the re
Cosplay Photoshoot EtiquetteMy good friend hikaraseru has written a very good guide on how a standard cosplay photoshoot should be conducted in a conducive manner. I got her permission to post the entire article up, so hope you guys like what she is presenting to us.Cosplay Photoshoot Etiquette3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Want to plan a cosplay shoot, but somehow things just don't turn out right? Maybe the photos were not how you visualised them, or that the photographer seemed to be extra grumpy, or you just don't know what's going on? Read on for how to get the best out of your cosplay shoot:
The 4 Ps:
Having a plan is essential and should take up the most time overall in your shoot. Speak to the photographers closely, because they will be the ones producing the photos that will be the end result; make sure they are aware of the concept and background of the series you're shooting. Some photographers will want to do their own research prior to the shoot (reading the manga/watching the anime/looking up reference photos) - so make sur

Although Shiro Kotobuki became paralyzed from the neck down in a motorcycle accident 22 years ago, the illustrator refused to give up and didn't want to become a burden to his family.
So, he reached deep down inside himself and discovered a creative side, a talent he never knew he had.
Today, holding a stylus in his mouth, Kotobuki, real name Hiroshi Kobayashi, uses a graphics tablet to draw illustrations of "moe," fictional perfect young girls, at his home in the city's Tonemachi district.
He also published a textbook on illustrations two years ago to inspire disabled people.
"I want to find more meaning in things I do," Kotobuki, 44, said. "I want to share my courage with other disabled people."
A former motorcycle enthusiast, Kotobuki was a senior at Tokyo University of Science in the fall of 1991 when he had an accident on his way home on a motorcycle. He injured his cervical spine.
He initially thought it would heal soon. But no matter how much time went by, his lim

This journal is gonna talk about how I actually made my Ahri Costume. I am not pro so my method is gonna waste a lot of fabric like I did.
I used Miyuko's Version as a references because the official paper is a bit small. I believe you can easily get references now because lots of people cosplayer Ahri before.
Materialswill only stated out major materials that you will need to buy, instead of finding them lying around at home.
-Red Matt Satin or printed satin(this work best because of the floral effect, I am out of option SO I used a thick satin instead.
-White Fabric of your choice, feel confortable with it.
-Yellow Satin or printed satin (same reason)
-Bias tape ( if you're using satin then get a satin bias tape)
-Patterned Ribbon/Tape (silver)
-Knitted China Accessories/Red Tassels.
-Big Golden Bell
I start out with the easiest thing - skirt . I draft this free hand.
