Playstation 20th Anniversary TributeThe Playstation Brand /Console series celebrates its 20th Anniversary in December and i bet the most of you have some good memories of games on the first Playstation console.Playstation 20th Anniversary Tribute2 years ago in Personal More Like This
From the first games on the console like RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRiiiiidge RRRRRRRRRRacer ...one of the favourite games of Kaz Hirai
and following hits like Tekken, Battle Arena Toshinden, WipeOut, Twisted Metal, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Metal Gear Solid and of course Gran Turismo to the last big hits like Resident Evil 3 in 1999 or Final Fantasy IX in 2000.
Every game can be claimed by up to 3 artists
This project started on the 25th October 2013, the absolute deadline is the 1st November 2014.
We got a ton of visitors for Link's Blacklist, and this Idea sounded to me like it could be an awesome art gallery as well and be a better choice than to organize something for multiple consoles.
List of games which could be part of a Playstation Tribute, you can also mention other games if you want to participate in this
SEXY."IF YOU DON'T WANT PEOPLE SEXUALLY ASSAULTING YOU, MAYBE YOU SHOULDN'T DRESS LIKE THAT!"SEXY.7 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is often the response I receive when I retaliate against sexual harassment. Welcome to the current trend in the cosplay scene.
Over the years, cosplay has grown in popularity and in power. Cosplayers famous enough can make a living off this hobby while travelling the world, and even the regular con-goers can be approached to be part of a major game launch. Major developers are finally listening to our input, creating complex and detailed characters that anyone can fall head over heels for. Some people hit their head hard when they fall, though. Too hard.
Sex sells in any industry, and the geek subculture has no exemption from this law. Female characters are regularly tossed in skimpy outfits to draw in their target audience, with their fleshbags defying gravity and cameltoes getting way more attention than needed. But seriously, what is wrong with this? What is wrong

The huuuuuge Super Smash Bros Wii U screen where players would battle it out to win a legit gold SSB medal. I kept winning the training part, but never the final battle T__T Still, my boyfriend won two medals and gave me one lol.
This isn't me, but I took this photo of my boyfriend and my friend photo-bombing him when we attended the Xbox One conference. It was really cool experiencing the conference live!
I also met people like the well-known Triforce guy and the creator of Tetris! *___*
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. I got her permission to post the entire article up, so hope you guys like what she is presenting to us.Cosplay Photoshoot Etiquette4 years ago in Personal More Like This
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

Requests are open![CLOSED]Requests are open!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Update: Here are the screenshots for the winners! Thank you to everyone who was interested!
I feel like I should force myself to draw some stuff, and the best way to do that is to take requests. I'm going to take some sketch requests, they will most likely be waist-up or thigh-up.
1) You have to be my watcher (you can watch me now if you like my art)
2) I will only draw OCs, and only girls (boys are difficult to draw ;_
If you're interested, please:
1) Fave this journal
2) Leave a comment with the character you want me to draw!
I'm going to open two slots. If more than two people are interested, I'll choose the winners using random.org.
5 Ways to Avoid Being DiminishedThere's a discussion brewing in comics about artists being more diminished as of late--that readers, reviewers, and publishers are focusing too much on writers rather than the artists who draw the book. I agree it's happening, but I'm not sure it's worth sounding an alarm over. I never felt diminished, but maybe I'm part of the exception. Maybe it's because I'm an artist and a writer.5 Ways to Avoid Being Diminished2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Either way, I do have a few thoughts on what artists can do to pull themselves out from under the rug.
1. DON'T DRAW LIKE A COG.
If you conform to a "house style", then you're at higher risk of being treated like an interchangeable cog in the comics machine. Yes, you're more likely to get consistent work, but you won't stand out as much. Therefor you'll be sought after less by big name writers, you're less likely to make a lasting impression on reviewers and readers, and you'll have a harder time getting raises (12 others draw like you and for less money).
I also suggests inking yourself if it helps. Penc

you need PVC, cutter, colorlake, hot air gun or an oven.
so at first I made pattern and copy them on the PVC
after that you cut them out with the cutter (I swear make some breaks because your hands hurts a lot after that)
then put the part in to the oven and hold them for 20sec.
when you take them out of the oven you have 10sec to bring the in the right form

Top 11 Cartoon CosplayersThe third catagory on our cosplay countdown is the Cartoon section. Most of it was Disney however there was some Avatar and Last Airbender in there as well so its just Cartoons. Lets get started.Top 11 Cartoon Cosplayers2 years ago in Personal More Like This
11) tabeck's Disney Heroines
In the last countdown I had stated that its hard to do groups. This is another well done group shot. Each of the models fit each of the charterers best. Tinkerbell's devlish smirk. Alice's innocence. Tiana's tude. Etc. However I would of given this picture a higher score if it was one picture and not multiple.
10) Noriyuki83's Pochauntus
I love the pose and the expression on her face. Pocahontas is such a mellow character so the model can't show too much attitude or else it breaks the character. Here its played just right and it looks great.
9) ForlornTreasures Esmeralda vs Church
There was so many well done Esmeralda cosplayers so it was hard to pick just one I liked. I ch
