Funny images XD*** This journal is manly designed for my watchers, people who are familiar with the fandom/s that they and I share.
So if you are not interested in the fandom/s I show or it's not your humor, just close this window or let it be like mature people do, "don't like, don't look". I just posted this with the best of intentions, to make some of my watchers smile, not to ruin anyone's life.
:iconleaderplz::iconsaysplzo I look like it?
:iconfacepalmplz: Pfff... still hungry?:
:icontruestoryplz::iconsaysplz:The real reason why Madara couldn't say "NO" to Kabuto:
Lol! Judas and Jesus even have 11 friends in common on fb! (you know, the other 11 disciples) lmao! I cannot!
:icontobidanceplz::iconsaysplz:Tobi doesn't like this game!

I don't want people editing my art, but I must admit this thing I found made my day:
Here you are a blue-balls Sasori
Doujin copies ARRIVED at home + PHOTOS!!! WOW! The parcel arrived at home on Monday, just as I expected.
Before selling them, I'll go tomorrow to the post office with my doujin inside an envelope to know how much the shipping costs EXACTLY are.
I'll sell them in my "Crimson Garden" website, from the "SHOP" section as soon as possible (interested people will have to fill an application form about their order details and the payments will be done via Paypal)
GOOD NEWS about my DOUJIN ^o^My doujin is already being printed!!!
[Bullet; Green] They told me it will take them 3-7 days plus the shipping.... I think I'll have the copies at home by next week [I've got my fingers crossed.].
I think I'll sell it soon finally, so interested people please take an eye on the upcoming journals because I'll do the announcement as soon as I get the parcel at home.
[Bullet; Green] PRICE: It will be around 15 dollars (11.9 euros) + shipping cost to your country ^^ But I'll give you more details the day I launch it.
[Bullet; Green] I also did a cute video presentation for you, like a little doujin preview :> I'll submit it soon.
[Bullet; Green] I'm so excited because it's the first time I could say I feel proud of some doujin I'd done (it has nothing to do with my previous ones). Here you are few prewiews:
My Website - NEW LINKS!!! Please save them![Save the links now or fav this journal if you want to check them later]
Just wanted to announce that I have new links for my 2 Crimson Garden WEBSITES (the normal one and the R18 one) because now the new ones are shorter and easier to remember ^^
Crimson Garden http://kaoyux.tk/Crimson Garden R18 I can't give you a DIRECT link to my adult site due to dA policies, but let me give you an easy TIP that will help you to find the link so easily It's the SAME link than the one above, but you only need to replace "kaoyux" with "crimsongarden".
*NOTE: The OLD links WORK TOO! They are the same websites but I'd prefer the new link as the official ones because they are simpler.

PE: Learning to paint with deviantArtA lot of people want to learn to draw and paint better but they just don't know where to start. You don't need an expensive art course to learn and progress, sometimes the answers are not far away. On DeviantArt, artists not only share their artworks but many of them are willing to share their working secrets, they create tutorials and FAQ journals or simply answer to your notes if you ask them.

10 things to ask before you draw a Children's Book

With the growth in popularity of the e-book many authors are seeing a glimmer of hope and realizing that they can get their work out there without having to break into the velvet roped publishing house exclusive party. This means that you will begin to get even more solicitations from those authors looking for artists to bring visuals to their words.
If you have a website or have done any degree of online advertising of your artwork, you have probably gotten an e-mail with a similar message as the title. If not, you will at some point. It's best to be prepared now. For those who have gotten it, nine times out of ten you aren’t sure how to respond to it, what should you ask, how do you respond?

PE: 10 tips and tricks not very known about PS10 useful and not very known Photoshop tricks
1. Saving your .psd with all layers hidden makes a smaller file compared to saving it with all layers visible.
2. You can use the Crop Tool to quickly increase the canvas size of an image by holding down Ctrl + Alt whilst dragging the Crop Tool outside the current canvas.
3. If you want to see only one of your layers at a time, hold down Alt whilst clicking the eye icon of the layer. (do it again to show all layers again)
4. Holding down Alt while in a dialog box turns the Cancel button into a Reset button, so you can reset the values back to default.
5. If you want to just quickly check a very heavy .psd file, you can hold down Shift + Alt while clicking the Open button. This way Photoshop will open a flattened version of the file.
6. You can change the gray background that surrounds your image with the Paint Bucket Tool, just hold down Shift and make click on the background.
7. Not a very unknown tip, but if y

PE: 5 reasons to believe in yourselfSuccess is not a measure of how much money you earn or how popular you are, rather, it is being able to find your passion - one that makes you happy and ultimately, one that you would be happy to leave as your legacy. To make a step forward to reach your dream takes smarts and guts but why couldn't you? Here is five reasons why you can.
1. Everyone was born equal
More-less, this is true, some people are born more challenged than others but we all possess skills and ability to learn. It is possible to build something out of nothing if we really want to. It all comes down to our preferences and decisions.
"Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent."
2. Overcoming your fears
By constantly challenging yourself, you can get rid of fears that used to follow you. You will no longer be worried, you'll know you can count on yourself.
"If you think you can, you can. If you think you can't, you're right."
Canvas sizes - inches and dpi and pixelsThis is a sort of guide on canvas sizes, inches, dpi and pixel x pixels.
when it came to canvas sizes, I always kind of assumed that inches belonged with dpi and pixels were just pixels and that everyone knew that; but i read a whole bunch of comments on a tumblr blog where someone asked about canvas sizes, and SO MANY people were replying with things such as, "4000x4000 px at 300 dpi" or "2000x2000 px at 200dpi".
and I guess not everyone quite understands what dpi's really used for xD.
DPI = Dots per Inch. It means how many dots will be printed per inch.
DPI is actually used for printing purposes. It shows the printer how much pixels to print per inch, literally. A common printer (at home or even at a lot of printing stores) at best prints at 150dpi most of the time actually; there are some super duper great printers that can print REALLY fine that can go up to ...apparently a lot more xD; #dpi, so that's why everyone usually suggests saving your project at 300dpi; most printers are f
