    xD Yeah, the first few cuts are scarey, but honestly it makes the wig styling 1000 times easier.
    :/ have you tried styling wax (not sure about wax. Might just weight it down) or um... 'hair glue' ...? It's a strong last resort for making it stay, I guess...?
    I think anything without alcohol in it is okay... What have you tried using so far? are the fibres heavy? (but serisouly xD a test-piece... It's your best friend xD!)
    Cash is so rare right now :'< I feel your pain....

      Yay! New page, finally!

      So far I have used Personal Care styling mousse and Play it Straight "Cool Goo" styling balm. I have another product, but I'm afraid to use it because it's all brown-colored. I also have hair spray, but I don't think that will do much good until near the end. The fibers aren't very heavy. The hairs are about as thick as mine, maybe a tad bit thicker. It's a New Look punky wig.

        I think stlying mousse will be too light, tbh. It's hard to say without seeing it xD; argh!
        If I were you I'd start by gluing the ends of the spikes up like I expalined and while still holding it spraying the underside with hairspray first and them moving to the topside of the spike. Also starting at the tip of the spike and moving towards the base.

        Thats all I can really think of that will help you for now, but I'll let you know if I think of anything better xD;
        Good luck and let me know how it goes

          *Buys you plane ticket and gets you to style the wig.* LOL If only...

          Thanks for the advice. I will definately put it to use. Eventually.

          In the meantime...


          I have 2 Chaos Duel Disks, but no classic ones, so I'm trying to make one out of junk lying around.

          Of course, if someone wants to give me a classic Duel Disk...

            Lol I hate living on a silly little island ><;
            That duel disk is looking good!
            I don't really know the series that well but I knew it was one right away!
            Just out of interest, how are you getting the pieces to stick together?

              Thanks.

              As of now, aside from the stacks of board, nothing is holding it together. In the end, it will probably be held together by super glue and screws.

              Here's an update on it:


              Hopefully I can dig up some metallic silver paint to replace the grey with. That would look awesome.

              EDIT: And yes, thus far, it does work. (Added trim to back)

                Thanks.

                Because I don't have the money. *pout*
                Actually, if I really wanted to spend $40+ on a Duel Disk, I could get one, but I'd rather find one for about $20 or so.

                    I like how it makes it look like felt, the lines and color are fantastically great.

                    I don't need to tell you how good an artist you are. XD

                        Hayao Miyazaki Caricature: A project for my Computer Illustration class. I had to choose a famous person and make a caricature of them. I chose Hayao Miyazaki, a famous Japanese director. And yes, I did make him disproportionate on purpose. I hate working in this style. -_-'

                          x3 Awesome!
                          I have to say I thought It was Miyazaki before I read that it was, so it's a good likeness!

                          I like the style of it, even if you're not too fond of it, the crisp lines and colour look really nice.
                          Also, I love the expression you gave him! :'D

                            Wow, you're the second person who has said that! I had no idea I made such an accurate likeness of him. Thanks!

                                  It's not much, but I tried to throw a quick little something together for Halloween. I had originally planned to take more pics of my Yami Bakura cosplay (full-body this time), but I've been sick for the past week (so much that I missed my first day of class is 3 years and it was even more than 1 day that I missed!), so I wasn't able to do it. I've also been in quite a bit of an art block (I haven't been able to create any traditional art at all this month), but I hope this little "card" will suffice.



                                  I hope you all had a great Halloween holiday.

                                    New maneki neko pattern added to the digital section:



                                    Basically an updated, digital version of my old maneki neko tessellation. It actually looks more like a cat now.

                                      As of now, aside from the stacks of board, nothing is holding it together. In the end, it will probably be held together by super glue and screws.

                                      Here's an update on it:


                                      Hopefully I can dig up some metallic silver paint to replace the grey with. That would look awesome.

                                      EDIT: And yes, thus far, it does work. (Added trim to back)
                                      Looks cool! You should've tried Kijiji.com.. I got my dueldisk there and it only cost me $20 ._. But now I've stopped cosplaying.. and they go for like much much more on ebay nowadays so I might sell it.
                                      Try it for some cosplay stuff next time.

                                      Also great stuff, but watch your form in some of your more rendered pieces. You sometimes lose it.. but just keep practicing!

                                      Also.. for wigs.. @[email protected] I dunno if you finished or not, but don't use gel. It doesn't work. I use got2b glued (hairglue) and ice hairspray. Works wonders.. :3 and I got 1st place for best wig last time I went. So try that out, but make sure not to use too much. The hairspray can REALLY hold. The glue is just to style some strands in place. It's some good stuff. VM me if you want more info on styling OR wig-dying.
                                      (I went as Jaden Yuki one year haha)

                                        Thanks, I'll try to do that next time (if I cosplay again).

                                        Yeah, I'm no good with 3D pics... Luckily, my favorite style is 2D.

                                          UPDATE: New "Yuki-Onna (Manga)" added to the Hand/Digital section.



                                          I decided I wanted to redraw my old Yuki-onna pic. I cleaned it up and added a bit more detail. After that, I decided to stylize it like a manga drawing, so I shaded it and added a newsprint effect. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out (the uppermost portion, anyway, as I neglected to do much shading on the bottom).

                                            Hey it's looking great! There are a couple things I'd love to suggest to make better *mostly the hands and the fact that the lack of a darker tone on the face just makes it look like it's missing an eye rather giving the dramatic one eye revealed thing that you see in a lot of manga.

                                            Do you mind if I do a draw-over in the next couple of days to help you out?

                                            other than that, I love the composition and the clothes look really good!

                                              Do you mind if I do a draw-over in the next couple of days to help you out?

                                              other than that, I love the composition and the clothes look really good!
                                              Thanks. Sure, I don't mind at all. I've actually been trying to get help on it.
                                              If you need it, here's the non-colored, non-shaded lineart: http://karite-kita-neko.deviantart.com/art/Yuki-Onna-Line-Art-186819276

                                              Thanks again, and thanks in advance!

                                                UPDATE: So come and move your hips sing "Oa-ah-ah".
                                                Look at you two hips do it, la-la-la.
                                                You and me can sing this melody.
                                                Owah-owah-ah-oh!
