Doesn't get much more rotten than this. Fujoshi, guro fan, lover of monsters, ladies and retro demons.

As someone who went to university for art, I have to say, drawing from life (anything at all!) is a great place to start. We started with simple still life, mushrooms, peppers, fruit etc. and then moved onto live model drawing afterwards. Don't worry if your early drawings suck, they'll be quite terrible at first. Just keep going, that's the difference between someone who stays at the same spot, and someone who gets really good.
Best nendroid ever~The shiny apple is adorable.
More boy nendroids please! :D
This is such a good breakdown on why digital media is so important, and piracy isn't the total evil its made out to be. The internet is the new printing press; when anyone could print something, suddenly social class and interests were transformed and shaken up. The internet is doing the same thing, why shouldn't the very low have access to the entertainment and media of the very rich? I'm not a wealthy person, and I would love to be able to support my favourite anime/manga producers, and I certainly do add money to the pot when I can. There is also the problem of what I'm interested in not being available through legal means in my country, particularly very old/obscure manga that is even out of print in Japan, that is only available through scanslations. Hopefully digital will also cut down on problems like this, and others like censorship, marketing (that really is an evil), exclusion and the inherent problem with art, literature and obscure but artistically important works getting distributed. Everything should go digital, and hopefully with the sales from that, we can enjoy our 'objects' like books and DVD's that as stuff accumulating otakus we love to collect, at an affordable price.
I've been having a fun time learning Japanese through the show 'Anpanman' recently. It's for young kids so the Japanese is simple and almost none of it is subbed. It also introduces neat vocabulary words, different forms of speaking (casual, formal, slang) with easy to understand visual cues. And the main villain Baikinman is just too cute...:3
Yay! I loved the manga. :3
Now 'Do You Remember Love' is stuck in my head, thanks guys. : | (Amazing origami work, I can barely make a crane, let alone a Valkyrie! How much experimenting did it take to come up with this design?? Hours and hours, surely.)
This is so cool...imagine what passion for a hobby can bring!
The best sushi, after salmon maki of course...omnom...
I love her style...long black jacket, black shiny pumps...so eighties!~ Gorgeous woman.
Beautiful men!! Lovely character designs.
Salt in most industrialized nations is iodized to prevent health problems...so it would technically have iodine in it, which does protect against radiation absorption in the thyroid. But I doubt the amount in iodized salt would do anything for anyone, aside from raise blood pressure. Iodine pills have something like 130mg? Around that number...iodized salt has, well, much much less so we don't all die from iodine poisoning.
...this pile of manga looks a little dangerous...XD
Oh man...it's just things, but still, majorly upsetting.
You're right, Canada seems very interested in emotional hysteria, with tear jerking accounts and dramatic photography, etc. compared to fearful predictions that may or may not happen. That kind of emotional reporting is also a little bit tasteless, but I'm okay with it. As long as we're not spreading panic, which is the more important concern.
