So...You Want To Be A (cosplay) Photographer?Ladies and Gentlemen, due to an overwhelming response of "Yes" on one of my latest polls (I think it was something like 35-3 in favor), I'm going to write this journal about my experiences when it comes to photography, and, in all honesty, a majority of it will be aimed at cosplay photography given that that is what I have done the most of since I decided to get a bit more serious about photography. I also feel like it is very important to say that I'm not at all, in any way, saying that this is the "right" way of doing things. What I write about in this journal, and what I say are my own opinions, formed from 4 years and multiple conventions/outside shoots worth of experience. You all are more than welcome to agree or disagree with me, and I invite you to share your thoughts in the comments section, as well as ask me any questions you might have (PLEASE keep it respectful, folks).So...You Want To Be A (cosplay) Photographer?3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Facebook page and Give awayHey everyone~Facebook page and Give away2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I created a facebook page and if you like my stuff and have an account, I'd love it if you'd add me there. I'll post work in progress pictures, wig and make up tests, cosplay plans and of course photos of my cosplays as well. So if you wanna know a little more, just come of and like my page. I'd be more than happy to have you there <3
Because my page is very new and I'd like to promote it, I'll connect it with a little give away. Like my page at facebook and send me a private message with your DA username afterwards (at FB). From all people who sent me a private message, I'll choose one randomly by lot. Whoever the lucky one is, will get a 3 month prem at DA.
The deadline will be by dec 15th, 10 p.m. German Time (it's exactly 2 days). Winner will be announced at 10:30 p.m.
Good luck everyone ^^

We are back and we want to be like we were in our first journal. So, I will be like Keith, again.
So, listen to me, you maggots, now I have something for you.
I think that you can be proud because we were waiting for it long time. Really, really long...
And I mean second CD OST of Shingeki no kyojin anime!
Yes, we of course have link for you!
It was published in 16 but we couldn't do nothing because we wanted to add something to this journal.
And by "this" I mean something from AION game.
I was playing with Impatient Soul last week and we were thinking "hey, maybe we should make a legion?". And yeah, we made it.
It is "Wings Of Freedom". We have only 10 players (because we are adding only fans from this anime/manga)
And now, something special. Your great Cloud (yeah, it's me) made his own cloak!
We are like this!
It is of course us!
And now something different. We will wait for new chapter and then we will add new journal.

Posting works without crediting artist *updt belowHappens a lot nowadays doesn't it?Posting works without crediting artist *updt below2 years ago in Personal More Like This
People randomly saving pictures of other's anime illustrations , then posting it at their own wall without bothering to credit the original artist.
Or some are even as low as to claim it as their own.
But anyway , I don't know why , but I'm feeling pretty pissed even though I suppose it might seemed like just a trivial issue.
So here's the thing -__-
Previously my younger imouto came to me asking me to help her draw a girl for her school something project.
So I did it anyway , was in a hurry but well , it's my imouto , so why not. I'd probably charge others if they ask me to do something like even a simple doodle when I'm busy anyway.
And what happened next was , when I asked her how did it go the next day , she said , "Oh , I gave it to my friend , she likes it and she wants it"
I was like "huh why?" (though technically speaking I'm burning inside)
She said, " Uhm , well you drew it at the wrong side of the paper , so it can't be used , my friend wan

Episode 21 'will you believe in us?'.Attention Soldiers!Episode 21 'will you believe in us?'.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Today I'm gonna to write depressing note. For the first time, I am not a Commander. Today I am just a watcher of the epic series "Shingeki no kyojin" and a heartbroken man.
I don't know what to say about this episode. It was the saddess episode for me because I saw like really good soldiers died.
Of course I am saying about Erd Gin, Petra Ral and Auruo Bossard. Soldiers, all of you, salute for their deaths!
*Saluted and cried like a child*
We saw also their incredible skills on 3D Gear. Their plan was just perfect, they were amazing. We saw their trust for each others. We saw their blood. Everywhere...
Death of Erd was brutal. So much brutal... Petra? I loved her, I really do and stamp out of her... It was to tough for a woman. Auruu was another, fine character. This kick, it was painfull also.
Not only this.
Emotion fight between Eren and Female Titan. It was incredible too. They were not like inhumans. They were like a warriors. Like a soldiers fighting for their

You are doing great. She sorted 45 pages in featured! It was something, thank you for that and really, good work!
And of course, my impatient-soul She is always beside me. I don't know how I.. No... How we would have handled this group.
You know, it's hard for us to lead such a Soldiers like you. We are from Poland, we don't know English so much as you. Sometimes we don't know how to write something or in our country this words are a joke. For example, in our country if someone tell you that you are lame, you are laughing because you know that is not a vulgar word in your site.
When Impatient Soul said to me "Maybe we should make a group on deviant-art" I was opposed. Why? Because I didn't know that our group will be so popular. Yeah, we must say that, our group are the best on deviant-art about Shinge

WHAT PSYCHOLOGIST SAID ABOUT FANGIRLS/FANBOYSWHAT PSYCHOLOGIST SAID ABOUT FANGIRLS (KPOP): A psychologist says: "Don't underestimate those children who chase after Korean celebrities, their hearts are purer than anyone else, they love courageously, they will want to try their best to tackle difficult obstacles, the language and cultural barriers. They symbolise peace, they don't discriminate based on race, they befriend people with the same... interest from different countries, they're more passionate and warm than anyone else. They don't betray the ones they like easily, they are persistent and don't give up easily. They are stronger than anyone else on the inside, because when they are loving these Korean stars, they experience the setbacks they've never experienced in life. They are all sensitive children, easily touched to tears for a long time because of one incident. Through investigation, most of them understand gratitude. Their way of thinking is different from others, they don't easily gWHAT PSYCHOLOGIST SAID ABOUT FANGIRLS/FANBOYS3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Apparel Collection: ALL dAY EVERY dAY“ALL dAY EVERY dAY” represents the artist’s constant love for making art. This drive and determination is always working in the back of our minds, always noticing inspiring things, always adding notes and drawings to notebooks, and always thinking creatively. DeviantART is a wonderful, swirling artistic ecosystem with a fertile breeding ground for this never-ending creative spirit.Apparel Collection: ALL dAY EVERY dAY2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently at deviantART, we tried out a small-scale collaborative program, bringing in outside artists to illustrate pieces for the seasonal clothing line. For the piece ALL dAY EVERY dAY, I’m proud to introduce Tony Van Groningen, or tonybricker here on dA. It’s always a pleasure to hand an artistic brief off to an artist and have them come back with an exciting piece that can go a few rounds in collaborative sessions to make final. Working collaboratively brings multiple viewpoints to the drawing board and adds a great deal of richness to successful pieces.
