quicker-way!

One of my worries about posing in cosplay is that I don’t want to be one of those people who always has the same face or pose for their photos.. when you are at a con all day and you’re tired and hungry and people ask you for a picture you tend to default to a certain look/pose it’s just easier/quicker that way. I swear though it may look like I do the same pose or face all the time for some costumes when I do post pictures of them.. I do make a lot of faces.. all the time XD annnd then people take pictures of them D: I’m sorry to my photographer friends sometimes that you may get these faces more than something more serious but I think we always have fun :) heh

This is the quick sweep through some of my saved pictures and the last bottom one in brandy new :D

But uhmm.. I think I make some pretty majestic faces. :)

Jupiter Ascending

We finally saw Jupiter Ascending today. If there is a quicker way (cinematically) to my heart than making my beloved city look only marginally less spectacular than floating space castles, I’m not sure what it is. Maker bless the Wachowskis and their infatuation with Chicago.

Also: Channing Tatum plays a much better werewolf than a stripper, which is hilarious to me and also gives me hope for his upcoming role as Gambit.

Well, if you think about it, it’s one of those scenes that doesn’t necessarily move the plot along. They can show Tris not being able to cope with her anger in easier, quicker ways. Insurgent is a long book. Cutting that particular scene seems almost necessary if you think about it in “movie world” type of way. It’s unfortunate. I would pay to see that scene. Hopefully they’ll shoot it and it’ll at least end up in the deleted scenes for the DVD!

Unlike Four being drunk. Which they shot. And are keeping from us. :/

So this is KIND OF what I meant with dimming down the quality of my art for Loner Dash.

Believe me or not, but this was rushed. RD there is sketched and then coloured. I roughly added in a couple bits of shading. I even turned my stabilizer on SAI down to 0! Honestly the photoshop effects and filters were the ones that helped this picture out the most.

The background was half-arsed, which my backgrounds on Loner Dash will probably be from now on. I put too much unnecessary detail into them backgrounds. XD I think I should save those backgrounds for Klausen and Reina.

But yeah, you know what? It doesn’t look bad! I might even start working on the next Loner Dash update just to test this “rushed” technique out.

I’ve been feeling way more motivated lately, so I’m totally up for it! :D

Things I want to see before One Piece ends: Zoro and Sanji getting drunk together and ending up arm in arm whilst singing an emotional rendition of the Sogeking theme.

I don’t know if this is something Chinese learners learn early on, but when you see sales signs that say 九折, that doesn’t mean 90% off, it means 10% off. 

Following on from that, 八五折 is 15% off, 七五折 is 25% off, etc. It’s pretty easy to remember actually, because the numbers just indicate how much of the original price you pay. So 九折 means you’re paying 90% of the pre-sales price. 

i just realized toki’s hands are too short im _(;3
