Manga/Anime Repeating Contest December
Manga/Anime Repeating Contest DECEMBER 2009
Judging takes place on the second to last day of every month. Deadline is DECEMBER 30th at 11:59 PST. (Find Your Timezone!)  The deadline means that the note must be in my inbox before that time.
This Contests Theme is:
Holiday Decorating
Use your imagination!
Here are the rules:
     You can use old line art, or work for this contest, as long as some element of it is created for this contest. But put a little effort into it!    
The work must be Manga/Anime styled, and submitted into the Manga/Anime category. Not the Fan Art gallery or the Cartoon and Comics gallery, the Manga/Anime gallery. If it is not I will let you know that it is not in the correct gallery. I will still collect your piece though and come judging time if it is not in the correct gallery it will not be entered into the judging.

I like anime figures- I think I like the ones I have to build a bit more, but all figures are pretty neat. I like the challenge of converting a 2d image into something 3d, and it's impressive to see what a talented sculptor can achieve. Then we move onto the harder part- mass producing those sculpts. That's a skill in of itself.

Right now, in Japan, Winter Wonfes- the Wonder Festival is on, and there are a whole bunch of new releases that I think are pretty neat. If you'd like to see pics, you can check out twitter, using the #wf2018w hashtag- or visit your favorite sites. I did want to mention a few figures below, but I'm sure there are many others that you would be interested in.

Max Factory has announced a Megumin Figma, and has a prototype Aqua up.

And for our cozy camping fans, I spotted Nadeshiko and Rin Nendoroids.

No pics, but Kotobukiya is expanding their Bishoujo line by adding G.I. Joe.

For those of you who like building kits, there's a Frame Music Girl Hatsune Miku. In the Volks Charagumin kit line, they'll be releasing a Kurosawa Dia, as well as Ruby (to go with the You and Chika they've already released).

Art Trades, Requests and Commissions

The title says it all. If you have any questions, feel free to note me.

Art Trades: Open

I do art trades, when I have enough time. I don't want to be rude, but I've put a lot of effort into growing as an artist. I know I'm not a great artist, but I want to trade fairly.

Collaborations: Open

Same as Art Trades.

Commissions: I do not take commissions.

I do not take requests.

Love Live Sunshine

I found your anime scene tutorial after I tried to teach myself. I wish I had found it earlier. X_X Thank you for making the tutorial!! It helps a lot

Thanks! I've been working to try to refine it a bit. I've managed to imitate pencil lines a bit better lately, but that's only in Clip Studio Paint. I want this tutorial to be more general, so I may have to make a separate one describing that process.

Thanks for the sentiment! I have to hide your post, however, because the animated gifs are slowing down my front page a bit. Sorry about that!
