How to be a good subject for your photographer!You should try to:
- Instantly listens to quick prompts / direction.
- Be open to any critique mid or after shoots!
- Have a decent understanding of what the photographer is looking at (light/framing)
- Pose naturally and (if in Cosplay) act in character .
- Be confident for the duration of the shoot.
- Avoid being self concious.
- Be aware of the direction of light (to avoid unflattering shadows, etc)
- Loosen up! Literally. Shake your limbs and relax your muscles from time to time.
- Avoid squinting. If the sun is too bright you will naturally squint. Close your eyes and ask the photographer to do a count down.
- Throw ideas at your photographer. Be creative.
So there you go.. If you want to make life incredibly easy for your photographer try and nail the above points.
While I'm shooting I need 100% trust from my subject. I also can't have anyone disagreeing with my requests however odd they are (unless I ask em to do something dangerous, lol).
This completely breaks my creative flow

Let's make a look back to probably one of the greatest anime films ever made, that not many people respect as they should.
I remember the first time I lays eyes on this trailer.....I have to repeat this like 20 times (it was in a VHS tape....and that's kinda not that easy), just the trailer was enough for amaze the living shit out of me, and later I watch the first film "Vampire Hunter D" (1985), so i COULDN'T wait to see this one....I saw for the first time with a group of friends in college, and blow me away, but
SEXY."IF YOU DON'T WANT PEOPLE SEXUALLY ASSAULTING YOU, MAYBE YOU SHOULDN'T DRESS LIKE THAT!"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

Carciphona volume 1 sold out not long ago, and I’ve finally restocked those this week!Shipping prices lowered as promised in the past month!
I’ve been working on figuring out a new shipping company last month, and I am ready (I think LOL MAYBE) to switch over! Shipping has always been the bane of my shop because I’m in Canada. I’ve got tons of questions about it in the past year that range from confused to outraged. But it’s in my best interest to find ways to lower shipping prices, because while some people are in such disbelief that Canadian shipping can be that bad (it can) might even think that I bloat shipping prices to make more money, high shipping costs actually makes me lose business because SURPRISE, no one wants to buy overpriced things.
The new company ships through USPS which means I can lower shipping prices to USA by as much as 70%

(CLOSED) AUCTION - Sketch ''Shy Kitty''Here's the third pencil sketch auction. If you missed the previous ones, the idea here is that I'm selling original physical copies of some of the pencil sketches I did earlier this year. This time it's a sexy catgirl in bed. See below for details on the item, links to samples, and instructions on how to bid! This auction is open for roughly 6 days, ending on 25th.More Like This
BONUS FOR PARTICIPATING:
Everyone who bids on a sketch auction during December will participate in a raffle I'll hold at the end of the year. The randomly-drawn winner of the raffle will receive at least two items, which can be either original sketches/doodles or leftover prints (probably one of each!). Your bid doesn't need to win an auction in order to participate in the raffle! Bidding in each auction earns you an additional raffle ticket (but only one per auction item!). So go ahead, up that bid. Even if you don't win the auction, you might win the raffle.

(CLOSED) - AUCTION - ''Beach Pranks FTW''So, I figured it's a shame having the pencil works I did earlier this year just gathering dust (well, not literally, since they're still in the sketchbook, but I'm sure you get the idea), so I figured I'd sell off some of them. For how much? I dunno! You tell me! So, let's try an auction! I'll start off with the older ones and if this goes well, then I'll move on to the newer ones! I'll probably post some promotions and reminders about these auctions again, so bear with this campaign bombing your updates every now and then.More Like This

Freedom - A poemShe feels warm air gently stroking her skinMore Like This
She can hear her heart beating steadily, counting each precious moment
She smells familiar scents filled with memories of past adventures
A strand of hair falls down and tickles her cheek
She does not mind
It is out of reach
She remembers hearing the dove’s call for the first time
A sad song covered in a veil of confidence
She was so lonely back then
She moves, and can feel the white polyester silk grasping her
With a soft, yet firm grip it holds her in place
A warm embrace reflecting purpose and intent
She hears a calm voice
Bearing the same solitude as the one residing in her
Sharing her dreams
She wants to reach out
To touch the core of this blessed sound
To join it and fill the gap between its echoes
But she cannot express her recognition
She can only wait
And listen to the song of the lonely dove
A finger touches her shoulder
Her world is changed as lightning flows through her veins
The voice is the master of a temple, and she has

A Shoe TaleMore Like This
Mister Lacey and miss Ribbon were a pair of red shiny shoes living in a boxful of dreams, on cloud-coated linens. One May day, a little girl found them sleeping next to each other, and she loved them so much that she took them out for an afternoon walk, sometimes tituppy, sometimes gingerly, on the sundressed alleys. Mister Lacey and miss Ribbon were cheerful, as they had never breathed such a crisp air before, and the chill of those spring days, after a good sturdy rain, was daintly tickling their soles, growing goosebumps on their skin.
The little girl was bursting with fidgetness. When she stopped to bathe in a tiny oasis, she briskly took off her shoes and left them on the dewy grass. Mister Lacey and miss Ribbon were slightly afraid, as gloomy spiders and frowning mosquitoes were tamelessly rumbling around them. They cuddled tightly, to make the fear go away, like salt in a desert storm. The fear started to vanish itself, as the two realized that they were not alone. They were a p

I found myself floating, drifting high above the battlefield. My feet touched something that felt like an invisible glass floor, and soon I found that I was able to stand on it. It took awhile to get over my fear of heights, but once I did; I opened my eyes and just, watched, as the entire world carried on.
Funnily enough, I didn't feel much of anything at the time. I guess they tend to play it up in the movies. They always show that people remain angry, that people have feelings of wanting to do something or to accomplish something. But once you're gone, you don't actually feel much of that.
Instead, I remember being calm. I was very calm after that final moment. I would poke my head every now and again, thinking that the skin would feel raw, but other than that; I was alright. I

Well, darling, let me tell you a story,
A story all too true.
A daughter who became a wife, a wife who became a mother.
A mother of three girls...
One just above the age of a toddler,
One at the age of twelve,
And one entering the life of a married adult.
Now, the youngest girl was watching television,
And the oldest at the neighbor's home.
The twelve year old daughter sat at a computer with her closest friend,
When something terrifying happened.
Her mother was in the kitchen, coughing.
The daughter, although unable to see her mother, only could imagine the situation.
The mother walked calmly past the daughter with tears rushing down her face,
And up the stairs she went,
Into her bedroom...
Locking the door behind her.
The daughter, hearing the door lock, didn't bother to check on her mother.
She decided to expect and hope for the best.
Five, maybe ten minutes passed, the daughter still sitting at the computer,
When the mother stumbled down the

Heart of a daughter of ColdharbourHe couldn't sleep, thought that was to be expected. For Vlad was of the Dawnguard, and order dedicated to defending the land of Skyrim from the threat of vampires. And with vampires being creatures of the night, they knew that it was no time for rest and relaxation, but of vigilance. So Vlad spent many nights simply staring at his ceiling. Sighing at this, he chose to get up and make his way around the keep. Perhaps a good walk in the halls would tire him out enough.More Like This
The fortress of Fort Dawnguard was massive, far more so than any military structure he'd seen. But having spent many days here already, he knew his way around. So it didn't take him long to get to where he needed to be. He approached an old wooden door that led to one of the balconies on one of the fort's many towers. Once outside, he briefly shivered over being exposed to the night-time's cold air, but that was diminished by the awe he felt over looking up at the sky and seeing the auroras.
It brought a smile to his face
Crimson Snow 'I look around and see a structure of granite or some other type of rock, with arches sticking out of the ground in uniform rows, the air is stale and cold. Sticking out of the ground in a random array of rows are braziers. In the middle is a pillar with a button on top... My curiosity gets the better of me, soon my hand presses down on the button... A spike springs from the button striking my palm, causing it to bleed. I recoil back, luckily it was just a slight cut, and it was my shield arm. Behind me, the braziers alight with purple flame and start to move around, connecting in areas, causing the ground to have a mysterious bright purple light. When they stop moving, the pillar with the spike raises and there is a mysterious structure appeared... I pressed my uninjured hand on it, causing what appeared to be a lid to fall. Behind the lid was a woman, she appeared to be in her twenties, raven black hair with braids on both sides of her long, flowing hair,More Like This
