Not to mention I wanted to get that negative journal off my profile page.
How is everyone? 8D I'm doing alright. Work is work. Dollwise, I've been getting ready for ManikaManila Tiangge, my local doll community's annual BJD bazaar. There's much to be done so I hope it all goes smoothly!
Anyway, I know I promised a Dollism report. I don't think I've ever done one here. It's usually on my LJ and Facebook accounts.
So here I go!
We lived along Tung Choi street in the heart of Mong Kok. My friends and I usually go for an apartment rather than a hotel, to cut costs and to experience life as a local.
Not to mention it is tons of fun living with your friends for almost a week! We arrived on Thursday, July 11th. We mostly roamed around Mong Kok that day.
Tung Choi is right beside Sai Yeung Choi St. which is home to several doll

NOTE: As an animator I can't accept this to be a good stop motion, it's just impossible to get any BJD or any size to behave as you want. I didn't the best I could considering time (2 days!... no sleep) the fact that I'm alone and dolls falling, kicking, pinching... you get the picture XD. So, I apologise by the jerkyness and all that... enjoy! ^_^
How to Create Photostories, Part 1Community WeekHow to Create Photostories, Part 14 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Photostories, for those who don’t know, are essentially comics put together with photos as opposed to drawings. They can be as simple as a few frames making up a one-two-punch joke, or as complicated as several installments of a series. For mine, I use Asian Ball-Jointed Dolls (BJDs for short) to represent my characters, but you can use whatever suits your fancy and your vision.
I’m frequently asked for advice on how I put together my BJD photostories. Here is a step-by-step guide for the process I usually go through, and some tips! Feel free to pick and choose what advice you take away from it. My way may not be the best way for what you want to create, and everyone has their own style, but if you can find anything helpful here, great!
There’s a lot to do before I pick up a camera…the first half of this guide has to do with characterization and developing the players in your story. Feel free to
How to make BJDs?Recently I'm asked often to teach people how to make BJDs. So I decided to put all the info in one place so I could give only one link.How to make BJDs?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
BJD (Ball-jointed doll) is a complex creation that consists of many parts and is strung with elastic. The joints are based on the balls (spheres) mostly or on their modifications. Good BJD in my opinion is not only properly stylized but also has a well thought-out jointing system that allows to hold a wide range of poses. Every type of joint serves a certain purpose.
BJD construction requires a lot of research: trial and error or usage of free knowledge from the open sources. So here the links list goes:
* Aimi-doll, a very good tutorial in Japanese: making a BJD from the scratch. http://www.aimi-doll.com/howto/
Many artists started from there, me included. I use this method of sculpting the head while making realistic BJD heads that have a real or 3D prototype.
You may use Google translate to understand the text but the pictures are pretty self-explan
All Snapped Up .15 ~ SoftPoison~ An interview of a talented artist in our General Photography CommunityAll Snapped Up .15 ~ SoftPoison2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Tell us a bit about yourself, SoftPoison! How did you get into photography and why?
Well, Hi I’m Desiree and I’m from the Netherlands. I started photography thanks to my hobby. My hobby is customizing Ball jointed dolls. I saw these very talented people making great pictures of these dolls so I wanted such a doll and later I bought a camera. My first camera was a compact camera. It made great pictures but my love for photography grew.
I wanted something more so I bought my Canon and It was love at first sight. I started to photograph everything. From rocks to beautiful skies. Now my camera is one of my best friends hahaha

So, remember that whole coloring book project that has consumed all my time for the last month or so? It's finally done and available for purchase! It looks so awesome guys. I got a couple copies to play with and I've been loving coloring in them. So has Ember. Well, really she just scribbles then runs off with the crayons... but anyway. They have been tested extensively
The paper is great for crayons, and even better with colored pencils! The images are doublesided on the pages so if you want to use marker on these, I'd suggest copying them and printing them out first. Sorry I know some of you were hoping for single sided printing, but for various reasons it just didn't really work. The images look great though, and a lot of the sculptober images were reworked to be even

I would have been in this hobby for 6 years . wow //feeling kinda old
anyhow I've been through Ups & Downs..and it's been going well now..so i'm happy..
in the past I had to struggle to deal with shit from people and made drama of my own
for odd reasons I don't know what I do sometimes because I tend to prefer to confront
people but certain people rather pretend and deny..so yah.
Guess in this hobby maturity really doesn't come with age.
Anyway I'm out of those shit now so everything seems to be going well..
//other than negative confessions in that tumblr page =A;
I have no idea why is that page still alive..sometimes Im not sure if the Admin is secretly enjoying all the hate spread inside
it's quite ugly ; ( oh well.. none of my business...

Blue Moon? (Feature)Must be, cause I'm writing a journal.Blue Moon? (Feature)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
No, wait, I think it's actually a "blood moon"... (sounds kind of icky to me).
I saw a blood moon eclipse once back in the 80's. I couldnt figure out what the red thing low in the sky was. I thought it was a UFO at first because it was partly behind clouds! I was relieved to find it was just the moon.
To the person I met on the island last night: I apologize profusely. I dont speak Japanese and I have no idea what you were trying to tell me!
Hope you liked the pirate hat anyway.
Funny, though. I understood the Italian kid perfectly...
I just bought all three seasons of Gilligan's Island on DVD because my kids had never seen it. I'm not ashamed to admit, it was and still is my favorite old sitcom. At one point when I was little, I was in love with Gilligan. From the time I was about five, I always liked the oddball guys...

I've been busy speeding up the schedule so I can release my next webcomic, Fisheye Placebo as soon as possible. The current release date is set to early 2013.
That means Knite had to slow down a bit since it's difficult to work on 2 projects at once. However, I still aim to update Knite ch5 beta strips around once a week. You may have noticed that in the past, I posted Knite in full chapter flash format, but I really enjoyed posting beta pages on my :iconknites: account since this allowed more audience interaction. The problem was switching between accounts was too much pain, and updating several pages a day flooded people's accounts. In the end, I decided to post strips on this account instead. The strips will only be posted once a week so if you don't want to be spoiled, just ignore the strips

Love to hear your opinion!The art of storytelling is as boundless and diverse as the stories themselves. With the rise of the digital age and instant communication, story creators can now receive immediate feedback from the audiences. Sometimes, the audience will give critiques and demand changes to the story. Those of you in the gaming community will be familiar with the outrage over Mass Effect 3's ending, and those who love TMNT will know about the dissatisfaction over changing turtles to aliens. If so many people dislike something, should the creators reflect on the audience's critiques and make the necessary changes to please them, or stick to their original vision?Love to hear your opinion!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
