Whether they be a baker, painter, or candlestick maker, every artisan has their own set of tools.
The strategic slice of a chef’s knife, the perfectly placed stroke of a painter’s brush, the forensic eye of a camera lens, each bends to the will of their master. But the artist must first learn to tame each of their tools before they will do their bidding.

I've already had an excellent time with family back home, work colleagues and my special friends from overseas (three of whom I still plan to catch up on my days off for a Skype call).
I'm going to give some shout-outs (from the deviantART community) before I move on to some special comments that I've received and saved up since coming back home to Perth, Western Australia. The comments that I speak of revolve around my other life as a proactive freelance illustrator working on art commissions; sharing creative projects, blogs and videos that still continue to inspire others to this very day.

Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked.

We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.

Well, our attempt at it anyway.
We loved the sixth Shippuuden ending animation, and this is what happened. These shots are better viewed in sequence so I decided to keep them all in this journal entry, as opposed to spamming you guys by submitting each shot individually into my gallery.
That certainly was a challenge. You might notice the use of the diffusion filter in some shots. I usually prefer photos crisp and clear, but we wanted to capture the feel of the video as much as we possibly could. I'll make a follow-up post or something with other shots from the shoot, as well as outtakes.

As of now, my brain is too fried to write up a proper journal entry about our volcano GARventure, and one of my usual event reports (as you can see on the right side of my journal) about Cosplay Mania, but I'd like to take this chance to share a part of our lecture of sorts at the Cosmania cosplay workshop last Sunday.
China snowpeachdrop, Kat moonlightflight, El rosiael and I were invited to talk about general cosplay planning, like fabric selection, wig styling, cosplay makeup and photography. My friends might post the other parts, but for now here is our silly guide about posing for cosplay photos, and convention etiquette. The actual presentation was actually longer, and with lots more examples, but here is a condensed rundown of what we talked about, fo

First of all, let me warn you that by the end of this journal entry, you may find yourself sick of my face. (If you aren't already.) I'll be using mostly myself as an example for the things I'm going to discuss, because I'm the only person I can poke fun at without restrictions.
I get asked a lot of questions about these cosplay photos that most of you have come to know me for. Sometimes it's about the techniques we use, requests for tips and advice for other people who want to do something similar. Other times, the comments come from people who aren't familiar with cosplay, but are curious about it and are interested to know more. So I thought of making this li

In this post, I'll get into how I did each one!
Intro, and some bad old pictures
For those of you who have the patience to read for some extra info!
When I started cosplaying, I didn't think makeup was such a major part of it. I was so hesitant to even put eyeliner because I'd think, "This character is a guy, I shouldn't look like I'm wearing makeup!" And I guess I was silly enough to think I looked enough like the characters I chose without doing anything to my face?
I can't find more pictures of my really old cosplays (which is just as well, hahah) from the time I didn't want to use makeup apart from these:
I cosplayed as Haku from Naruto. I don't remember wearing any makeup for this. It doesn't show too well on these pictures but I saw some others where the natural redness of my lips made it look like I was wearing lipstick even if I wasn't. I felt it made me look more feminine than I should. Haku is still a guy after al
Revisiting Naruto cosplay + Road to Ninja Movie!So I've heard of this film for a long while, but never got to watch it for lack of a proper subbed copy/DVD release.

Ajisen Ramen near our school is closing down (much to our despair) so to say goodbye, we had a Shippuuden trial photoshoot. I say trial because it was just me and Sasuke that day, and my costume wasn't what I'd call complete. (It wasn't even mine, I just borrowed it to see if I'd be able to pull it off.)
I wasn't too sure how I'd fare as Naruto, but I'm glad there haven't been any violent objections about my character choice. We're still undecided about who we'll be cosplaying for the proper S

Just to be absolutely clear, I do not think the views make me any better than anyone else. I mean, I'm sure some of those are from people who don't even like me. But I guess my point is that it's crazy to imagine that this page has been opened up that many times, and I can't help wondering where all these hits have come from. And I just feel so grateful that a select few people in those millions have come to be irreplaceable friends to me.
It's been a wild ride with all of you guys through all this time. To me this isn't just a page where I simply showcase my artwork or the cosplay photos my friends and I come up with.

Its been a good run for me, and i wish the best to the new WCP and hope it thrives more than the previous one. And as you may have figured out, this deviantART account will not submit anything anymore. I'm going to miss a whole lot, especially the Naruto and Sasuke show (Yes, i've changed the order, and I have always wanted to do that! ), but whats important now is that the new group is getting a warm welcome in to the world of cosplay. Yes, it will be challenging and people are going to want quality over quantity, but i trust WhiteSpringPro that she'll succeed in delivering entertainment. And another thing, no, perhaps the most important thing that i want to say, is my appreciation for you.

What makes terrible ponies terrible?So today I spent a good deal of time staring at the terrible ponies tumblr and trying to figure out what exactly (besides all the rainbows, neon, black & red, alicorns...) was making all these ponies so terrible? No, I'm not denying their terribleness, I'm acknowledging it. Sorry.What makes terrible ponies terrible? in Personal More Like This
Anyway, I was thinking about it for a while, and what I've come up with is this:
People are trying to be TOO unique. They'll take things like rainbows, alicorns, super amazing powers, things that are really rare, and add them to their pony. However, instead of being unique, it simply comes off as clichéd and cheesy.
Perhaps it's an effort to stand out from the crowd. A lot of people feel that maybe they aren't unique and special, so they overcompensate for it by having Princess Rainbowsparkle, ruler of the world, as their OC. They think that if their character is incredibly rare and special, they must be too, without realizing that you don't have to barf rainbows to be special and unique.
That's just m
Things you probably didn't know about my ponysona!I'm going to use Thimble just for the sake of simplicity, since he was my ponysona long before there was ThistleThings you probably didn't know about my ponysona! in Personal More Like This
1.) The genderbend of Thimble is Thistle, who I now use mostly as my ponysona (this was done for shipping purposes, lol)
2.) "Thimble" is just a nickname, earned because he was so small as a colt, and is still rather small as a stallion. His real name is Thorn.
3.) Thimble was probably the first pony I ever drew full body, and I created him about a year ago in math class I can post the original pic if anyone wants, but it kinda sucks X3
4.) He has a theme song! Up You Go!, by Adrian von Ziegler.
5.) Thimble represents both who I am, and who I wish I was. He's silly and goofy, though if you mess with him or his friends, he's not gonna let you off easy. He's determined and doesn't give up. And he's great at fencing. Why fencing, you ask? First because I loved it when I took some lessons, second because I suck at basically anything athletic. So, I made him good at athle

I originally made it simply as something to comfort myself. I made a character, Rowan, based on me, and I sent her Nikolas, basically my "dream guy", someone who could comfort her, accept her, love her, convince her that she's not a monster, and give her all the things that I couldn't have myself. But, now I have someone who's soooooo much more amazing than any character I could have come up with, and I have more than I could have ever asked for, even if he's far away. Rowan and Nik will s

Giving away a 3INCH little Danbo /UPDATED!/Edit 09/08 And the winner of this Danbo give away is...Giving away a 3INCH little Danbo /UPDATED!/ in Personal More Like This
I give away one of my little Danbo's for free, just because I know how many people would like to get one. I'm not sure how yet. I think with random.org is the most fair way to choose one person. If you have a better idea leave a comment below. This give away starts Aug 1 and will end on Aug 8!
Who is Danbo? It's a carboard box robot made of plastic. He can move his head, arms and legs and his eyes can give light by turning on a switch. (see my pictures below)
What you have to do is:
Add this journal to your favourites so I know that you're in!
And that's it ♥
I'll send this 3 INCH tall Danbo in his original package to your address if you are chosen.
Good luck to everyone ♥
