Tokyo bluesEXTREME STREET PHOTOGRAPHY - VTokyo blues1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Are there places were street photography is impossible? Are there countries easier than others, or harder than others? How is it street shooting like in exotic places, or places you never visited, places that are completely different from what you are used to? I asked a few street photographers around the world to share with us their experiences.

Japan is a fascinating country with an unusual mix of the traditional and modern. It's a magical place filled with anime, cosplayers, samurai, sushi, and all the strangest things imaginable. Wrong! Well, not really, but this is just the cliché, outer covering. When newcomers just scratch the surface of this country, this cliché is all they find. But, in reality, Japan is a place like any other: full of human beings who have normal lives with all their little dr

In the Hellenistic era,most of the art had a Greek hue to it. Much of the culture and way of life were Greek at this time. (Because they were Greek! )

COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!Hi guys!! Thank you as always to all watchers and everyone who faves and comments - I'm so sorry I don't have much time these days to reply to everything, but I definitely do read and appreciate them all!COSPLAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've been asked so many times I've lost count to put together a makeup tutorial on how I do my cos makeup - and I finally did it!
I hope this is a little helpful, although some disclaimers - I have Caucasian features, so my makeup will be very different to someone with a different face shape. I use a lot of eyemakeup, much more than a lot of people, just because I do lol. My eyes a pretty big naturally, so I line them right up the edge, as opposed to widening the eye by drawing further out. A few things like that to bear in mind ^_^ That said, hope you enjoy! *chu*
Any questions please feel free to ask!

10 Years on deviantART!So like, woahhhh. 10 years. Crazy. How did time pass by so fast?10 Years on deviantART!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It doesn't really exactly feel like that long ago when I first started visiting dA and now it's already been a decade.
So kinda for myself (and also anyone possibly interested) here's a journal post recapping my last 10 years~ (Also sort of my journal in photography too, I guess.)
May 17 2002
I signed up on dA when someone in the drawing group I hung out with told me to check out his works here. I was only 14 then. I didn't use dA a lot at the time because it looked like this: http://web.archive.org/web/20030426063919/http://www.deviantart.com/
I was on a 15" 1024x768 display and the ad banner + dA header took up half my screen on every page load. Did not like. >_>
I dropped by dA every now and then, in Sept I suddenly found it a lot more user-friendly, the new version: http://web.archive.org/web/20030922013355/http://www.deviantart.com/

Art and dealing with struggleDear, deviantart fellow artistsArt and dealing with struggle1 month ago in Deviant Events More Like This
There is a lot of stress and struggle in our everyday lives. Anxiety, resistence, doubts, self-loathing.. but how to deal with them and make the art we are really excited about?
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
People strive so much for the easiest ways to achieve something, the fastest way to get to results, to get the reward without actually doing things .. but, as soon as there needs to be a hard work put in the process, as soon as it happens to be more difficult along the way, we tend to get frustrated and give up, because of not seeing instant results right away.
It takes time.
Whether it's developing new skill, working on new project - meaningful things so often take a lot of patience in order to make them. Overnight success happens so rarely and mostly for those, who work extremely hard on their cr
My Original Stories/Projects and CharactersHi everybody!My Original Stories/Projects and Characters1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Below you'll see the description of the comics/projects/stories to which my OCs belong and you'll be able to know more about their pasts, their behaviors, their love stories and much more!
•Seshin Monogatari (Tales of the Sleep World)
The order in which the OCs are listed doesn't mean anything: there's no project or OC that I like more than the others.
Before every story I'll put a small section with some general information about it and its characters, so you'll be able to understand what kind of OCs there might be in it. And I'll do something similar with the "dos and don'ts" of every OC (please read them, they will be very important!!).
Of course, should you have any doubt or question, please don't hesitate to contact me and ask me everything! I'll be glad to tell you whatever you nee

I HAVE RETURNED TO COSPLAY!Latest UPCOMING COSPLAY! Utena Tenjou Progress Wig shotI HAVE RETURNED TO COSPLAY!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As most of you know, I quit cosplaying a year ago and made a video about it about 6 months ago. Due to the high demand of many wonderful fellow cosplayers and convention goers writing to me to come back to the community, I have decided that since I left due to my career, that I now have the time to start up some fun new cosplays. I may not be doing a lot or attending as many conventions as I did in the past, but I will do what I can. I was very touched and honored to know so many people would miss me with them at conventions and this creative community. I missed all you guys very much as I focused on my career as a writer and artist. So, I am happy to say, I shall be returning to cosplay and have some fun new things in store for the future. I can't promise that it will be Hellsing related but I do have a lot of things to offer.
I will say that to start that my novel series PHOENIX was picked up in NYC by a couple big NYC publishin

Where do I even start? I'm glad to be alive.
It takes a lot of courage to put certain thoughts and feelings into words, too easy to be hurt for who we are, our heart's fragility can only withstand so much when it comes to our weaknesses, I think.
And so, I hadn't known how to write this, and I still don't exactly, not really. But last year -- getting over depression -- was surely the grandest achievement of me being 24 (and of course my doctor, who didn't even have to put me on antidepressants, thank you).
In many ways, I'd been afraid to write about it because I didn't want to jinx my recovery, it wasn't often I had something good like that. (Because you know, more than once, I'd thought that I was fine, just to find myself living in the very opposite of that the next months.)
It was a lo

We Expect a battle for humanity is about to begin,
Within each uprising,
a vague sense of stafety will ignite you in an unseen Shadow without a slither of a doubt,
towards those who protect and defend You.
Let the thoughts slip away, and remain calm. Stay close to F.E.A.R.
The rebels claim their brave new world is upon us.
Do not be fooled by the chicanery in which they lay their claim.
It is false, and their uprising will not succeed>
You will place your trust in F.E.A.R.
Only we can protect.
We are not interested of the possibility of defeat,
not within the scilence of the deserted ally,
through the clamour of a crpowded street

as war fades into the distant memory of enlightend pigs, and opend wounds.
