our Soulcalibur V cosplay group at Expomanga 2012OMG, I just can't believe we made it. Yesterday we attended Expomanga 2012 (one of the most important cons in Spain and the bigger one in Madrid) being part of a 13 members SCV cosplay group. It was a dream come true.our Soulcalibur V cosplay group at Expomanga 20122 years ago in Personal More Like This
SC is one of our favourite games of all time and it was awesome we were able to gather 13 fantastic, nice and hard-working cosplayers on this purpose.
We had a fanastic time. It was very hot but we didn't mind. Here you can watch our skit. Enjoy!
We won the 3rd prize!! (Technically we were disqualified because they didn't let perform more than 10 memebers per group. So winning that prize is great and we are vey happy they gave us that recognition).

This is a personal review of Resident Evil 6 and is by no means meant to be professional. Due to popular demand I decided to share this review. Respect my opinions and I'll respect yours.

The least important, but worth a mention. Honestly, I think the graphics were a testament to how rushed out this game really was. They were a downgrade from RE5. Most objects and side characters were angular, while any close-ups just looked terribly grainy.
I still face-palm every time I see
Gaming Hypocrisy, iOS 7, Thick SkinGaming HypocrisyGaming Hypocrisy, iOS 7, Thick Skin1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm really growing tired of the gaming industry and gamers in general. Am I the only one who sees a paradox in gamers wanting and demanding that gaming be taken seriously as a media, while demanding that the very people (journalists) who are actually critical and deliberately ARE trying to take gaming seriously to toe the line and praise the shit out of every game and give them all 10 stars out of 10 or else?
Most recently The Escapist gave GTA5 a 3.5 out of 4 stars and the internet freaked out because it wasn't a perfect score. Before that Polygon got heat for giving Dragon's Crown a 6.5 out of 10. And before that both Polygon and NowGamer got heat for giving The Last of Us a 7.5 and a 8.5 out of 10. Gamers freak out because they want EVERY journalist to give EVERY game a perfect 10, especially those they've already determined will be amazing games (like GTA5). But at the same time they bitch and moan if a game comes under any sor

I would like to remind the readers of this article that it is my opinion, and that my complaint is with the COVERAGE of this news story. I do not know enough about the actual crime to comment on it and would therefore prefer not to. My issue is with the coverage of this news story and many others like it across the globe. I hope you will share this article, or your own thoughts on irresponsible journalism today, preferably with the broadcasters themselves if you believe that responsible journalism should take priority over entertaining journalism.

I've been asked so many times I've lost count to put together a makeup tutorial on how I do my cos makeup - and I finally did it!
I hope this is a little helpful, although some disclaimers - I have Caucasian features, so my makeup will be very different to someone with a different face shape. I use a lot of eyemakeup, much more than a lot of people, just because I do lol. My eyes a pretty big naturally, so I line them right up the edge, as opposed to widening the eye by drawing further out. A few things like that to bear in mind ^_^ That said, hope you enjoy! *chu*
Any questions please feel free to ask!
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.

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

This group focuses on encouraging artists.
The monthly feature is late due to my very ancient computer crashing and having to purchase a new one. The artworks appear even more impressive on my new 27" high resolution monitor
I have opened two new folders, one for matte painting and another for announcements.
Our membership is now over 3,000 and our galleries as I always write, contain even more amazing and inspirational art, which is well worth viewing.
The primary focus of this group continues to be digital painting and digital drawing, which should be submitted to the 'Featured 5' folder. This group also accepts and has folders for animation, designs and interfaces, deviantWEAR, pixel art and pixel animation, vector and vexel artworks, comic strips, pages and panels, matte painting, mature content, mixed media, mixed media - 3D, 3D art, commission information, tutorials and resources, announcements and also wallpaper submissions.

Being recently returned to a more regular visits status here on dA, I figured what better to showcase the new talent that has invaded the photomanipulations gallery than to reboot this series?!

I will always choose 15 manips from the week that passed. The criteria for selection is simple. They have to present creativity, polished technique and overall good quality. The kind you know when you see them, because they're just eye-catching.

the moonlight bathes you with its delicate light,
soft wind kisses your pale skin,
waking up your senses with the symphony of fallen angels,
while worshipping choirs are sung at your realm,
as the crave and lust enshroud you,
bringing you to life from your immortal dream.
Mother of the fallen,
Queen of the Sheol,
Lilith is ancient verb,
Dark Goddess of velvet voice,
unholy communion of primal delight,
desecrating the innocence,
forbidden word delivered in crimson kisses,
utter bliss captivating your soul under the night.

This week, Khader Adnan entered his third month of a hunger strike
against his unlawful detention and mistreatment at the hands of the Israeli military.
The deafening silence by world leaders and media at his plight shames us all.

He is currently lying as he has done for weeks with one hand, and one leg,
shackled to his hospital bed. By the time you read this, he could be dead.

First of all, let me warn you that by the end of this journal entry, you may find yourself sick of my face. (If you aren't already.) I'll be using mostly myself as an example for the things I'm going to discuss, because I'm the only person I can poke fun at without restrictions.
I get asked a lot of questions about these cosplay photos that most of you have come to know me for. Sometimes it's about the techniques we use, requests for tips and advice for other people who want to do something similar. Other times, the comments come from people who aren't familiar with cosplay, but are curious about it and are interested to know more. So I thought of making this li

This Is My Life NowI received a comment today that really set me off. It said, "You should work with other photographers sometimes, you haven't had great images in ages." Well, let me explain this. There are many reasons that I only work with Scott now. First, it is due to the fact of how many times I have been screwed over by other photographers. Whether I never got photos, never had an input on creative control, or what not. I just shoot for fun now. Moving on to the main reason I shoot with Scott, he is the love of my life. I have never been so in love or yearn to create art with someone more than him. He will hike long distances with me to get to the location, he makes me feel more comfortable and beautiful than anyone else, I could go on and on. I understand that there will be some people that wish that I worked with other photographers, but this is my life now. I create art that I love, even if no one else loves it. You can follow me on this journey or not. (I hope that you do). However, there is nThis Is My Life Now1 year ago in Personal More Like This
