ATTN: YOUR PHOTOS ARE BEING REMOVEDHello everyone,
Just a reminder that if you submit to the wrong folder (and our contributors didn't catch it in the voting process) I will remove your photo from the group.
People have been taking advantage of the 'Cosplay Tutorials' 1 vote rule and have been submitting their non-tutorial photos to the folder.
I do no move photos from folders, I just remove them.
We spend a lot of time and energy trying to make this group great for you guys.
All we ask is that you submit to the correct folders please.
Thank you for understanding everyone
Introducing: Cosplay Tutorials Folder!Well, not a single person said no!
So, we opened a Cosplay Tutorials folder!
This works a bit differently then all the other folders.
In addition to the 1 deviation you can submit a week, you can also submit 1 Cosplay Tutorial deviation!
Tutorials are to help people out, so why count it as your once a week?
We didn't think it made sense either!
Hope you all utilize it Remember to read the rules before submitting, and PLEASE submit to the correct folders so you don't have to wait another week to submit a photo!
Live, Laugh, Cosplay!
Tutorials Section?I've been playing around with the idea of having a tutorials folder.
Would anyone utilize it if I did?
(we aren't a super group so I can't just post a poll, sorry! You guys can be super lazy and just say Y or N. I just want to see what the majority thinks )
Happy Cosplaying and Holidays!
FAQI have noticed lately quite a few people have been posting asking "why was my submission declined and this other one accepted?" or "why does this keep expiring?".
Please keep in mind we have dozens of contributors with varying opinions.
If you feel your photo should have been accepted when it wasn't, try submitting it again next week.
We also get hundreds of submissions a week, and as much as we'd love to get through all of them, sometimes other engagements keep us from it.
I just ask you please be patient with all of us, we're trying our best to keep a group everyone can enjoy!
THEY'RE AT IT AGAIN, Stupid ScammersOf course they're back!
And now they have a new trick.
I just want to stress everyone to BE CAREFUL.
If anyone, and I mean anyone is messaging you asking for nudes, do not send them.
It doesn't matter how they word it, it is still the same scam everyone.
Don't be fooled by nice words like "movie" and "model".
If you receive one of these messages, I urge you to report the account as soon as possible!
Your bodies are precious!
COSPLAY SCAMMERS ON THE LOOSE! BEWARE LADIES!It has come to my attention that there are some weirdos on the loose (and I don't mean the good kind).
I'll quote what I read from Not Bad Cosplay (http://notbadcosplay.tumblr.com/post/38288553380/not-desu-enough-the-fake-cosplay-com-interviews) on Tumblr:
"For those of you who don’t know, a group has been going around scamming female cosplayers by pretending to be cosplay.com, asking to do interviews over skype. In the interviews at the end cosplayers were given a quiz on their character where if the females answered questions wrong they had to remove 1 article of clothing."
Now, I could write paragraphs of how enraged and disgusted this makes me, but I think she words it best.
(PLEASE, ESPECIALLY if you are a girl, take the time to read the rest of the article from Tumblr http://notbadcosplay.tumblr.com/post/38288553380/not-desu-enough-the-fake-cosplay-com-interviews)
I was approached by one of these people about an interview yesterday, not knowing about this scam.
OVER 10K MEMBERS?!I haven't even been looking at the member count, but we're just a few hundred over 10,000 members now...WOW!
When we made this group I had no idea it would become so popular!
So, a HUUUUGE thank you to everyone who has joined and/or contributed to our lovely gallery of wonderful cosplayers and photographers alike
You're all amazing and deserve credit for making this group what it is now.
Hope you all have a safe and happy holiday (and make sure to be careful on the 21st! I'm betting on an alien invasion... >_>b )
Do any of you have a special holiday wish?
We'd love for you to share it!
Thank you again everyone for all that you do!
Happy Cosplayer Appreciation Day!It was brought to my attention earlier that today was declared Cosplayer Appreciation Day!
In celebration of every cosplayer out there, pat yourselves on the back!
What got you into cosplay?
Do you have a favourite story of a cosplayer you know?
Introducing the "Props" folder!So, after having this group for 2 years, we've finally made one.
Venegal proposed the idea to make an actual folder for them, and since I've noticed so many people wanting to submit props... here we are!
Keep in mind that progress photos will still NOT being accepted! We ask that the prop photos you submit are of FINISHED props! and PLEASE submit them to the 'Props' folder!!
Enjoy everyone, can't wait to see them props!!
(props, props, props, props, props... think I said it enough times? It's starting to sound funny)
Creating your own MangaIntroduction
You have a great story, a bunch of characters and you want to create a manga. However, where do you start? Do you have it Left->Right or Right->Left? How should you publish it (*note: some publishers may have additional requirements/restrictions)?
The process is pretty much the same for any graphic progression such as comics.
Luckily, there are a great number of tutorials to help you on your way.
A storyboard is a panel or series of panels which detail the sequence of significant events in a planned scene, i.e. a rough sketch coupled with some words to describe the actions in the scene.
At this point you'd need to have an idea of whether you are making a left->right or right->left manga.
Photoshop tutorial- PS basics 4I'm back with my journal tutorials for Photoshop. I didn't post any new journal tutorial in a while. Anyway, my previous tutorial you can check here. I'll describe some Photoshop basics for everyone who try to learn to use Photoshop. So in this article you'll find tutorials: Tilt-Shift, Customizing brush 2, Lens Flare, Mask Tool,.
If you wish to see images in full resolution then simply click on the images below (they are big 1920 x 1080 px). I used Photoshop CC here, so some things may be different in lower PS versions. But most of things may be the same in all PS versions. I'll make even more tutorials like this, so stay tuned. And if you like it, then you can fav this article. Thank you and enjoy. I hope it's helpful. More tutorials by me you can see in feature below.
When It's HardHi folks! I realized in my most recent round of blogs that I've been a little quick to tell you all to put on your grown up panties, but this one is going to be a little different. Making art can be one of the most exhilarating things you'll ever do, but (and this is from personal experience also) 80% of the time you're going to fail. You'll spill your ink all over that glorious drawing. Oil from your hands will permanently stain only the portion of paper that was meant to remain a snowy white. Your computer's hard drive will crash or all your image files (all the WIPs especially) will get corrupted. You'll try something new and it just won't work out the way you envisioned. These things are the parts that aren't really spoken about enough, and so when they happen to us we assume that we're doing something terribly wrong. I'm here to tell you that we all go through these things and there's always a solution!

How to render MMD videos like a pro!
The DeviantArt MMD community is notorious for its drama and mini-conflicts. It has also been the one in which I've encountered some of the rudest people on the Internet. However, I have also been rather fortunate in being able to become acquainted with some of the nicest, talented and knowledgeable people I've ever encountered anywhere. Many of these have graced my gallery with their visits, comments, encouragement and attentions. And a few, perhaps some of the most talented, have graciously given me access to hard to get models, exclusive previews of their MMD work and even insights into their methods of doing things.
Occasionally, I am gifted with real gems and this was the case when garmus1 dropped a note in my inbox the other night. Apart from the depth of knowledge that he gives into his methods, he's also given me permission to share that knowledge with the rest of the community.
Now, I know that some of you will have, after reading only
