- Including the tokusatsu of 10 years ago, this will be the third time the series has been brought to life on film. What are your goals this time?

Sakai: Ever since the beginning our concept has been to bring the world of the manga just as it is to life on screen, so my thoughts were “Let’s aim this at the women who watched the show in real time years ago and offer them something that glimmered in their childhood.” I thought it would be good if we could make a show that made women in their late twenties think “How beautiful!” or “How cool!” or even “This makes me nostalgic!” These women have become members of society, experienced their own hardships and have experienced a reality that’s different from that childhood dream of “a prince on a white horse.”

Sako: In other words, it’s so that “jaded” women who are tired of real life can forget it for a while? (laughs)

Sakai: Ahahaha. I hope they’ll remember the dreams they had when they were young girls. So I want to portray beauty, coolness, and aestheticism from a woman’s perspective. I hope to give them the delicate acting of a girls’ anime, the beautiful flow of the clothes and hair and make every important detail beautiful.

Feature: Snapshots #3 – Water

Snapshots

I’m a bit of an amateur photographer – I studied photography at A Level, and it’s always been a hobby of mine. Snapshots is the feature where I share some of that photography! All of the photos link to my Flickr account, in case you’re interested in viewing more.

Today’s theme is: water. At one of the millponds nearby. Same millpond as above. The area is now a college for adults with learning…

Tutorial: how to make organized notes.

  1. Read the objectives of the lecture. If there aren’t any, flip through the lecture slides and make an outline. This puts into perspective what you need to be learning and what you should get out of this lecture.
  2. Skim the book to get familiar with how the information is divided compared to your outline or objectives. While doing this, you’ll figure out whether or not you need the extra details from the book. Sometimes the lecture is enough and you could keep the textbook just as a reference to things you don’t get.
  3. Write down the first objective and flip to the page in the book that has the information pertaining to that objective. Read the lecture slide then refer to the book for details.
  4. Combine your lecture notes with the textbook information. Do this by rewriting the information in your own words and try to be as concise as possible. 
  5. Keep doing this for every objective. Paste things if it helps.
  6. Make sure that you’re not just copying information. Use visual aids as much as possible. Put the information in a table, flowchart, diagram, etc.. (refer to this post to see how I make my flowcharts).
  7. When you’re done with all your objectives, go through the lecture and your notes to make sure you didn’t miss anything.

General tips on how to keep them organized:

  • Be systemic. Making objective-oriented notes is one way to do that. 
  • Use two (or more colors). Color-coding information helps me remember it + it doesn’t look that bad.
  • Section your objectives according to the topic. Then make sure that when you’re writing out the information, it’s in a sequence that’s understandable.

Disclaimer: this is the way I’ve been making my notes since I started med school. By no means am I claiming it’s perfect or that everybody should follow it.

Hope this helps and as always, happy studying :)

Okay guys, i’d hate to come asking strangers to buy my art….but i’ve been having a bad time

My father can’t pay off the rest of the tuition I owe due to a sudden spike in his health problems. Since my parents are divorced, I live with my mother who is struggling to keep up with the rent with her own income, so she cannot help me either, and altogether, I’ve been severely stressed (my tumblr friends have helped plenty, though).

I still owe $1800 dollars to my university taking away what I have already set aside to pay for it. so, I need as much money as i can get in the shortest amount of time possible, and I’m willing to work night and day drawing to at least help do this.

i am accepting donations as well, there’s a button on my blog -  i don’t really expect many people to do much for me given the bystander effect and various other causes, but!! every amount counts, $10, $5, $1 - even the smallest amount, and i’d be grateful for everyone that did so. 

Above are the standard prices.

after everything is said and done i’ll remove these paragraphs from this post. 

thank you so much, and have a good day!

additional information on commissions:

  • Base prices are assuming you want a full body artwork. If you would like a head, bust or waist-up artwork instead, let me know - it will definitely drop the price.
  • Picture references and thorough descriptions are highly appreciated, especially when it comes to OCs.
  • Please recognize that commissions take time - though if you ever want an update, don’t hesitate to send me an ask.

Signal boosting is, as always, heavily appreciated.

There’s a new Ravkan folktale on Tor.com!

In this third Ravkan folk tale from Leigh Bardugo, a beautiful girl finds that what her father wants for her and what she wants for herself are two different things. It is a companion story to the third book of the Grisha Trilogy, Ruin and Rising, and the stories “The Witch of Duva” and “The Too-Clever Fox.”

They made a book from the series? I love Grimm! Well the tv show. Unsure about this book.
