I've shared this nifty little trick before - a home made tripod. It sounds impossible, but actually it's really practical and much easier than lugging the real thing around with you if it's not needed! Check out this articlefor more information on how to create it!

Reflectors can be pretty expensive from time to time. I've been lucky to pick up a couple cheaply on Ebay and they serve the purpose but if you really want to save, then why not try making your own?

Camera Raw Tools for PhotographersCamera Raw Tools for Photographers1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
This article aims to highlight some of the more useful tools that you can find in Camera RAW. It's doesn't cover everything, and purely focuses on the useful things for the image used. But hopefully it will give a bit of insight and maybe even highlight something that you haven't used before...
This tool will save your life. Honestly. I'm not exaggerating! Whilst it is possible to 'over' soften an image, most of the time all that's required to reduce a little noise is to up the luminance slider just a little bit.
Auto White Balance
Quite often , the white balance can be the only thing that upsets an image. In the example that I'm using, the day was fairly dull but the whiteness of the sky was quite overpowering. Therefore the clarity of the image turned out to be weaker than I wanted and the light 'harsher.' Using 'Auto White Balance' gave it an Autumnal sort of feel and a tinge of orang

Colouring Book Pre-orders OPEN [UPDATE]Colouring book Pre-orders openColouring Book Pre-orders OPEN [UPDATE]3 years ago in Personal More Like This
UPDATE: 03/03/2011: Hi all and thanks for all of your patience~! I have a bit of news of the colouring book that isn't necessarily bad, I just need to change it a bit.
The tutorial that was to be included within the book is now being included as a pamphlet, rather than pages in the book. The tutorial is still in full colour and the same size as the book as originally planned, so you're getting exactly what you paid for, it just isn't stapled within the book pages.
The reason for this is because when I get a colour book printed, for example, say I have a 60 colour book and only 5 pages of colour and the rest are in black and white. Even if only 5 pages are in colour, I still have to pay for a 60 page full colour book. And that is *very* pricey.
I hope this is not too much of an inconvenience to everyone.
The books will be sent out by the 10th hopefully! Thank you everyone!

Why I left DA + currently hospitalized.Hi everyone! It's been awhile. This post is a little important so I have a feeling im going to be making it a little long... Also, I'm doing it from my phone. So, there may be weird typos.Why I left DA + currently hospitalized.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you don't wanna read the whole thing here's a basic summary:
I left DA because of Internet hate which brought down my confidence; I got a lot of hate the same day I found out my grandfather died which really made it worse, I planned on coming back the beginning of January but I was hospitalized because of a bowel obstruction and I am still currently in the hospital and plan to come back mid February. Also I feel like shit.
Long version: I guess I'll start... With why I left. It's a really complex reason and I really hope everyone will understand, but I think there might be some people who just won't. And by that I mean, I am aware I have a handfull of followers who might feel neutral about my art rather than full out liking it. Or maybe I'm just talking about the people who don't really like my ar

Contest folder closed! Thank you for all the entries!
Judging now in progress. We will try to finish everything up in the next few days.
Things that get accepted into the Featured folder are still featured on my blog and I notify the authors personally. No featured journals were made since I wanted to keep the contest on the front page.
Stay tuned for results!
Fancy banner, eh?! Haha, welcome to the first contest of FancyCrafts! I, FrozenNote, will be your host!
What is this contest about?
Summer has started and many people have vacation during this time. So instead of goofing around doing absolutely nothing...why not learn a new craft? Something you haven't tried before? It could be fun!
So basically, this contest is about you learning a new craft. You, the entrant, should make something with a technique and medium you haven't tried before.
[UPDATE V. 0.1] Object-tan Contest!:iconmikeinel: has offered to draw the top 3 winner's Object-tans How awesome of him, yeah?[UPDATE V. 0.1] Object-tan Contest!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I would like to announce an up coming contest! (I know this is out of the blue, the admins and I were contemplating it a while back but I think we're ready to take this on.)
The goal of the "object-tan" contest is to pick ANY object (Speakers, remote, printer... Lamp? ect.) and personify it, or turn it into a human(like) figure. Much like how Mike did for the Console Wars.
Now I think a big part of this contest is to go crazy, be creative and do things your own way. So there is no real restrictions. Just title the piece after the object you chose, and submit it to the folder I've set up for this contest.
August 20th (for now)
Enter as many times as you want! Make as many Object-tans as you want!
Beyond the Extended Cut... I will reignite.And so the end creeped upon us. With the Extended Cut behind me I can finally say that I've seen the full extent of how BioWare wanted to end the Mass Effect trilogy... And I disliked it. Don't get me wrong, the Extended Cut is a vast improvement over the vanilla endings and I think that everyone should check it out - but it is still the same unfitting ending, it is still something taken out from another story and sewn onto Mass Effect's glistening skin, with it still kicking and screaming (yes, this is just a personal opinion and no, I am not bitter about that - I just dislike how it ended). The themes that made Mass Effect so great are still either nowhere to be found, or twisted around to present a vision I just cannot accept as something that belongs there. My fanface is itching, my writer sense tingling... Not the way I want to end one of the greatest sci-fi experiences of my nerdy little life.Beyond the Extended Cut...

Back from surgery (again)!Sooo.. I had yet another surgery yesterday.Back from surgery (again)!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I wasn't even expecting it! I had a checkup planned yesterday to see how my pacemaker battery was doing, and the doctor told me I needed to have it replaced within the next two months before it dies.
(A pacemaker [via Wiki] is a medical device wired up to the heart that uses electrical impulses to regulate the beating of the heart. The primary purpose of a pacemaker is to maintain an adequate heart rate, either because the heart's natural pacemaker is not fast enough, or [in my case] there is a block in the heart's electrical conduction system.)
The doctor continued on asking me, "have you had anything to eat today?" in which I went.... "???"
I had only had two spoonfuls of yogurt that morning... and then she told me she was doing pacemaker operations that afternoon, and was able to get me in.
So I went in for a checkup and I came out from surgery with a new pacema

Originally this was a book I released in 2012, which came in physical book format and included a copic marker tutorial, which I still have up in my shop for sale.
But now it is available in my shop via digitally! \o/ So no shipping costs, plus you get the high res versions of all of the files! Plus, it's down 50% from the physical copy *uwu* (And the copic tutorial is included as well!)
The book includes over 30 linearts which I drew in 2012, so they have a lot more of my shiny-desu style (lol).

Coloring book opinion needed from those interestedColouring book questionsColoring book opinion needed from those interested3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, so a lot of you might already know, I am coming out with a colouring book very soon. If you didn't, well, now you know!! \o/
It's going to have over 30 colouring pages and a copic marker tutorial at the beginning.
The pages ca be scanned and coloured on computer, or the pages can be coloured directly with markers or pencil crayons.
I was planning on making two versions of this book. One with simply the colouring pages, ($15) and one with the colouring pages+the included full colour tutorial/demo and FAQ($25 - there's a jump in prices for the colour pages).
However, I've come across a bit of a problem! And since this book is for you guys, I want to know what YOU would prefer.
The problem is that since this is a colouring book, and I know some of you will want to use your copic markers on it, it might not be a good idea to make the pages double sided. If that's the case, it would double the pages from 30 to 60, (so each colouring page is on it's separat
