We certainly hope so!

McCall's Patterns + Yaya Han = Cosplay patterns!Today is an incredibly exciting day!!!McCall's Patterns + Yaya Han = Cosplay patterns!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I feel incredibly lucky that on my birthday, I can finally reveal a long-awaited dream come true with all of you.
McCall's Patterns reached out to me last year to see if I would like to design some patterns for them. (Still reeling over this sentence, btw.) I had a meeting and lovely tour of their offices, and then got to work. My ideas were overflowing, but I knew exactly which patterns I wanted to design first...
We're proud to present "Yaya Han's Ultimate Bodysuit Pattern" as the first finished collaboration between McCall's Patterns and me.
It's a pattern we are sorely missing in the cosplay world - I know from having to alter and draft my own bodysuit patterns for many years. This patterns will make it easy for cosplayers (and everyone else) to tailor a bodysuit that will fit them like a glove, and use it as a base for thousands of costume ide

Normally, each month before those mean foxes attack us, I make a few Moonlight Bands out of whatever material I have on hand and some moondust. However! I cannot do this for all of you right now, since there are, uh, a lot of you now. Which is good! Fending off the attack requires a lot of effort, and that’s... well, sometimes there are... casualties. They’re not anyone’s fault but, you know. It just happens that way sometimes...
Um! So, yes. We’re low on moondust. There’s a particular Pokemon species back in Mossy Village which produces naturally a tiny amount of this stuff over

Change for the sake of change.Well…..that was immature drivel.Change for the sake of change.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I don’t know a huge amount about the “New 52” take on the DC universe (I stopped paying attention to DC’s output when they changed their logo to look like a half-unwrapped Acme magnet) but if the Justice League: War animation is any kind of summary, I’m glad I’ve not wasted my time.
Batman now seems to think it’s impolite if he doesn’t tell everyone who he is, Wonder Woman has taken to talking like a really, really bad Shakespearean actor and Superman is a dick.
Ignoring the animation’s terrible narrative, what struck me like a rancid kipper in the face was how god-awful the character designs were. In this instance; particularly Darkseid’s. Yeah, he wore a bucket on his head in the past, but it worked! It added to his menace as a laser-firing brick of doom. You took one look at him and you knew who he was.
Watch Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. THAT version of Darkseid is an ic

Now I'm not singling out anyone about this, but a fair amount of people said they decided not to watch the movie because of 'bad designs'. But then, it's just designs. It doesn't mean the rest of the movie is bad. I also have not read any bad reviews about it. The movie has been described as entertaining and still has the same charm found in the show we all know and love (love is a strong word, but you know what I mean). So don't put off the movie just because you don't like the designs. Tolerance and acceptance is what brought us to My Little Pony in the first place. We put aside the girly impressions and embraced the show for being genuinely good.
As for my honest opinion about the designs, I'm not turned off by it. If there's any complaints, I don't like the Barbie/brats/monsters high cookie cutter proportions. The choice of clothing looks more like fashion models
New Halloween CONTEST!EDIT: Please Submit works to the "Submission SORT" FolderNew Halloween CONTEST!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Alright, It's time to announce the rules and regulations for our Halloween contest!
Obviously, the theme is Halloween.
But, there will be certain things that we will be looking for:
1. Great Color Palette- We want it bright and colorful!
2. If you go horror, go all the way- guts, brains, we will love to see it
3. We would love to see your dark side- want to be a bit twisted? Go for it, within reason of course
(I mean, I don't want to see decapitated babies, omg, I'd cry)
4. We want to see something original. Yeah, cannon characters and stories are great, but we want to see YOU!
5. We want to see that you had fun with it!
Now, I know that there are those of you out there that are better with a pen than a brush (or whatever it is you do art with XD), so, we have a little something for you as well

Just a small rantNo one take offense to this, i am just writing what I am thinking at the moment.Just a small rant1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Note - Do not ask an artist for free art. It is very rude. Artist spend a lot of time and effort in all that they make. Many artist live off of what money they can earn from the art they draw. Please check their page to see if they are doing requests.
If not, don't ask.
You would not walk into a clothing shop and ask if you can have that shirt for free? "Oh I really like this design, but i don't want to pay for it. Can I have it pleeeeassee?" What do you think the response will be? Please do not beg an artist for goods. They are already poor enough, XD
And if you ask for an art trade, please look at your own work first. This is a bit rude too if you spend less than 5 minutes on a drawing and the artist you ask looks like they spent days on their part. If you do not know the time they spent, feel free to ask them. Then think about asking them for an art-trade.
Just be considerate when asking anything
Exploring Art 24: Selling at ConventionsI'm saying this as selling at conventions, though many of my thoughts would apply to fairs, expos, etc. just fine. But this little bit is purely about selling at art shows in sci fi/fantasy conventions.Exploring Art 24: Selling at Conventions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is what I do to sell, and my thought process that goes into it. I hope a little behind the scenes insight will help others who are selling or looking to sell.. or hell, even buying art. So let me take you step by step through selling at conventions the derpyjess way!
Step 1: Finding a convention to sell at
This part is a mixture of easy and frustrating. The easy part is googling conventions. Just google 'science fiction conventions' and you will find a mixture of lists of conventions and convention sites themselves. The other way is to talk to other artists who you like and seeing waht cons they go to. We all share information here, so it's relatively simple to get info on cons and *if they are worth sending to. This is important. Please talk to your fellow artists. If som
