Following the guest strip by Tiggs, I've just uploaded a new and 'disgustingly cute' comic at www.a3s.co.uk
Ten things about YOUOne of those ten things memes. Just ten random things about myself;
1) My name is Marc, but Im also known as Maku-neko, Dante Kimachi, and Dante Graywards.
2) I often feel trapped due to how the current society works, I cant go on further uni courses, cant explore the world, and rarely have time to do a zillion other things Id rather be getting on with. Need to win a few million pounds.
3) My friends mean a lot to me, Im ecstatic when theyre happy and depressed when theyre sad.
4) I sometimes get some very violent scenarios played in my head, often involving me fighting/killing chav types. Id like to think that in a real fight Id fair quite well, very few have actually seen me in proper attack mode.
5) I have this thing about needing to wash my mitts after handling food, possibly linked with not wanting to get console control pads greasy, I dunno.
6) I know where my towel is.
7) I supply my own sound effects for most sit
Stuff and things #089The rough scripts and sketches for Automatic Freestyle still haven't been fully sorted but at least I got a bit of a start on them all, it's really in such a state. Maybe I'll have more chance in the Christmas and New Year holiday.
Quick recap of life in general since the last update;
* Work at the office has been insane
* Keep catching colds
* Being hyper excited about going to Japan in March 2010
* Had a couple of epic nights out with peeps
* Had some more visits to other awesome friends
* Had a birthday (I'm 28 now)
* Ruth made epic Kuro and Shiro models which could possibly end up being official a3s merchandise
* The DSA finally allowed me to pass the often rigged driving test
* Lost lots of time buying and sorting Christmas pressies for people
* Read the new Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy book
* Rinsed through New Super Mario Bros Wii
* Scoffed a lot of chocolate
* Saved the world from complete destruction and no one noticed
Unloved shirtI wanted to buy a shirt on the cheap to zombify for Halloween.
Most were around £20 but I found the clear-out section and saw this sticker on the one I bought;
"This item has previously been on sale at the higher price for at least 28 days in the past 6 months in at least 5 Next clearance or Lime stores."
I felt so sorry for the shirt. Poor shirt *sniff*
The price was £5... the till rang it up as £3.
I'm gonna feel bad when I rip it up a bit and splatter it with fake blood.
Dante returns... sort of... ish.Finally found some time to update my dA and check out... erm...

The journal you have dialed can not be found*static*
Me, the 13th Duke of Wybourne? Here? Updating my dA account? With my reputation? Surely not.
It'll happen some when... maybe.
So... so busy T_T
Your Shikamaru and Temari photo requestsGah, will I ever find time to reply to all the comments and upload new stuff here?
Anyway, yes, your Shikamaru & Temari photo requests!
This May (just before Expo), Ill be cosplaying Shikamaru from Naruto and attending a photo shoot. There are various plots and plans, but Im also open to suggestions from the fans of the character.
Is there any particular pose youd like to see? Any scene from the manga/anime we could try to homage?
Well also be joined by a Temari cosplayer for some ShikaTem photos, so say if you have any requests involving those two characters.
If your requests are based on fanart or the manga/anime, link me to the pic and well see what we can do ^_^
Christmassy '08 season noteEveryone been having a good holiday?
I'm still having a major catch up with the online stuff. dA will have my full attention at some point soonish along with new uploads. Sorry I'm not replying to everything right away.
A particular exceptionally awesome person I know gave me a dA subscription!
I have no idea how it works, how long it lasts or what it really does.... is this the full list?

Stuff and things #084Yes, #084

Mostly the same as the last entry, I'm still trying to get on with various projects and also do lots of other things. Full time work does somewhat get in the way of world domination.
I had an interview for a part time art/computer teaching job in a college and essentially got the job, but I had to turn them down because it just wasn't feasible due to the distance and the few hours they only needed me per week. Was a shame because I really liked the place for several reasons. I was able to help a little with a few things and some advice, but yeah, had to miss out on that one.
The anime convention, Amecon 08, was excellent, and hopefully I'll have a report up at some point, although don't hold your breath, I still have finished the one from 2007. It made me really happy to meet up with some new and old friends. The only down-point was that there was so much going off at once that we missed out on a lot of stuff.
Stuff and things #082The weather can't make its mind up, chilling winds and pouring with rain, or bright and hot clear sunny days. May is going to be a busy month, I'm going to be all over the place, visiting far-off friends on certain weekends, taking tests, going on a 'team leader' course at work June is already starting to get booked up, no wonder it feels like the year is flying by already.
The past Free Comic Book Day and general hangout was fun even if illness befell some of our number. I'm doing what I can to chill-out lately, as I keep getting ill myself and generally slip into the old routine of excessively stressing and not sleeping well. Getting back to making time to play some games isn't overly productive but it is a lot of fun and makes for some nice escapism. 'FF:CC:Ring of Fates' on the DS does this well, and so does the excellent 'Mario Kart Wii'. At one point Chibi-Kiki and me were playing against Ven and Fish (on wifi) while using Skype to communicate. It worked rather well actuall
Commissions + UpdateEDIT: We were able to finally get my dad's death certificate. Thank you all so much for your kind words, encouragement and support and to everyone who have offered to help, I really appreciate it a lot. 💕
I'm still accepting commissions, you can check the details below. Thank you!!! 💛
Thank you everyone so much for your thoughts, prayers and donations. Unfortunately dad did not wake up, he passed away last night. 😢
We still owe a big amount of money from the hospital (around 11 grand) and they might not be able to release him or we won't be able to get his death certificate until we pay the bill. We're hoping that they would at least accept our promissory note but yea, I need to do something. I'm very thankful for all the donations that you guys have offered but I realized I can't really rely on it alone so I have decided to just open a new batch of commissions cause I really don't have any other choice. I'm gonna be accepting slots until I reached my goal s

Using Cross-Figure With Genesis 8Cross-Figure Genesis 3 is a program that allows you to use Genesis 3 Female hair and clothing on Genesis 3 Male and vice versa without using AutoFit. There are some extra steps using it with Genesis 8, but you don't have to be able to use a modeling program (unless you want to make a better ID morph after you're done, but we'll get to that).
Here's a YouTube version. You'll have to turn your sound up. Sorry.
Genesis 8 Male and Female
Instructions G8F to G8M:
Load Genesis 8 Female into the scene.
Load a piece of clothing or hair onto Genesis 8 Female that you wish to convert.
Go to the Parameters tab. If you do not have one, you can create one by right-clicking near your existing tabs and finding it in the list.
Click on the tiny button at top left of this
F.A.Q. TIME!!I get quite a few messages here on DA with various questions and requests. I don't have time due to work and family to answer all of them individually like I would like so I think a handy-dandy FAQ is in order. This way maybe I can answer a question before it's even asked and/or have a journal I can easily direct people to. So here we go!
Q: Can you give me any tips on how to draw/color,paint/whatever better?
A: The quick and easy answer is that there aren't any secrets to being able to draw well. I know it's not what people want to hear and everyone is looking for a magic trick that will instantly make them a better artist. The truth is that I have dedicated 1000s of hours to art in an effort to get better. I attended figure drawing classes, went to conventions and spent hours talking to other artists, and spent nearly every dime I had on books and art supplies. I lived it and breathed it. When you were out on a date or playing video games or seeing movies I was probably home d
Happy New Year!Hope you're all doing well!
Sorry I haven't been around here at all! Been busy these past few months and I've found that dA stresses me out LOL. I feel like it brings out the worst in me and I definitely feel more relaxed since my time away from it. BUT I'd still like to come back and draw stuff here again eventually. I miss drawing pony stuff and the next gen characters and all that. So maybe soon! I know I'm definitely rusty but it'll be cool to see how much my style's changed I guess.
Just thought I'd throw in a little update. You all know how 2017 went for me based on my journals but I'd like to hear about yours! Go ahead an comment some of the cool stuff you got to do this past year or maybe even the not so cool stuff. Anything! Go for it! I'm curious~
Happy 2018 ✨
