Teen Titans: Birthmark Screenshots!For some time now, I've been wanting to do a picture of Raven from the Teen Titan's episode "Birthmark". Somehow I've just not gotten to it. Well today I decided to fix that, and started looking for some screenshots from the show for research. And...ugh. Nearly every screenshot I found was worthless. Having no choice, I pulled out my Season 4 DVD of Teen Titans and decided to grab some shots myself. (I even photoshopped a few images that were camera panning shots to make one image) Since it was a process, and maybe others have had this same frustration, I decided to upload a few of my shots for everyone. Hope this helps out! Enjoy.Teen Titans: Birthmark Screenshots!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

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

But here in german Cosplay scene, and perhaps also for many other countries it's really a novelty.

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

Understanding your camera's exposure settingsIn this post I’ll be discussing Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO. The three camera settings that control “exposure” – the brightness of your photo.Understanding your camera's exposure settings6 months ago in Personal More Like This
There are three settings on your camera that control exposure: Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO.
The Aperture is the thing that opens when you press the shutter button on your camera. The ‘aperture setting’ determines how big the opening will be. It's measured in f-stops. The smaller the f-stop number the larger the opening, and hence the more light that gets in.
The Shutter Speed determines how long the aperture stays open. Shutter speed is measured in fractions of a second. The faster the shutter, the less light that gets in.
The ISO setting determines the camera’s sensitivity to light. Think of it as a light amplifier. The higher the ISO, the brighter the image.
In most cases you will want fast shutter speeds (to eliminate blur), low ISO (to reduce noise), and an appropriate aperture setting to g
Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!When my friends and I first heard of "that swimming anime" called Free!, this is pretty much what we expected:Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked. Although it started out that way, the more episodes we watched, the more we realized...
We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
I'd write more about how I feel about it but it would take up too much time and space over here, so here are a couple of posts that have already done the job well:

As always~ English is not my native language so you might come across mistakes. My apologies! If anything is unclear feel free to ask me in the comments.
I'm just showing you what works for me and what's my personal liking. I'm focusing on eye make-up and additional tips. If you think this way of doing a boys cosplay make-up is is using way too much make-up that's totally fine. Everyone has his/her own preferences and this tutorial is just a hint who it can be done.
The shape of eyes differ a lot from one to another, so if you want to try it the way I do my make-up you might have to adjust it to your own eyes. Maybe you have already run into this problem before while seeing a well done eye make-up in a tutorial or worn by an asian cosplayer. Furthermore be aware of the fact that the shape of your eyebrows, wearing c

Winter Alliance Contest! Greetings, fair Allies! It is my pleasure to announce the Winter Alliance Contest!Winter Alliance Contest!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What is the Alliance, you ask?
The Alliance is a project group intended to encourage visual and literary artists to work together. I've felt for some time that the dA Literature Community can at times be somewhat insular - to its detriment. We in the Lit Community are also sometimes prone to griping about the lack of exposure our work receives when compared to that of visual artists. So in the spirit of ^thorns brilliant Complaint Challenge I thought I would try to do something about that. And so the Alliance was born!
Because I, your founder, have a deep and abiding love for the seasons, this group will now host seasonal contests, and as the Autumn Contest is now over, it is time for Winter to reig
A Sad DayIt is with much regret that I share the sad news of H. R Gigers passing.A Sad Day4 months ago in Personal More Like This
The creator of our much beloved Xenomorph has died aged 74 in hospital after falling down stairs at his home in Zurich. We all know him best for the work he did on 'Alien' but Giger was a prestigious artist and one of the most influential creators of our time. His living influence on dark and surreal art will be greatly missed. Naturally our thoughts are with Gigers family during these tragic times.
