Komi the expert character

You know where im going with this.
To start off this post I will say I DON’T OWN ANY OF THE (Komi xi) PICTURES. I also think Komi xi as a Anime character not human. If you think she is real well let me show you why she is not. No I am not saying dont take my opinion , this one is one of those opinions that is needed to be shoved down your throat. Dont be blind and let your fantasies take over you. But if you know its a fantasy and not related to the same fantasy of a celebrity on a magazine that is overly photoshopped to perfection , but to the level of a Anime character in between a person that is cosplaying, then enjoy an just nod your head.

First go search on Xiaxues guide to life videos and check out her “how to photoshop” one and two. Be amazed and see what you can do and not track on PS and then come back here.
Note on that tool that can sharpen, liquefy and make your eyes bigger.


This is one of her ealier stages of PS. This is a modern ulzzang; the doll that photoshop perfect skin, circle lens makeup and lashes along with that cute lip thing they have the force to do. You can see the blur around the hair line and chin area even though her hair is sharpen on your left and compared to the left and right other than the overly photoshopped bright light the nose is thinner than the other picture.

Well let me tell you why the nose is thinner. It is the lighting that is making it smaller.
So that is all here


Why do her eyes looks like its pasted on the glasses on the left?
Why is her left eye a little too angled down and bigger than the other too the right?
The nose is the same but she is still learning here. The blur is still there but much better.


This is later in the game. She got much better didn’t she. The nose is way too sharp and her chin is much more pointer from the other pictures on top. Her makeup is better as well. Her eyes is more round on top and her lines on bottom is more sharp and widen.
Kind of like my makeup style.
I do not think she can get away with the “I paste my face on” look. The whole picture looks sharp but her face which gives that effect. She overly PS and that is what is making her an Anime character and not a pretty human being.


Now do not look at the last bottom left picture. That is not her
But on top with the reddish brown hair.

Boom!
There she is. Same cut, same color, same bang, same eyebrows, Same chain, same shape of face, same lashes and same lens oh wait….same shirt. That is komi xi that top picture. See where im going with this again. Look at that top picture and the one to compare it on the bottom right.
Boom right there again. You have your real komi xi without PS (and maybe surgery) compared to the Photoshopped one. Amazing yes but she will get better with practice. Now after those facts and proof with the after pictures you cant consider her real but a anime character or cosplayer.
I like the character komi but hate the people believing that is humanly possible. It sad cause take a look at this cause who is to say she stopped (PS) there with her face.


I dont think this is her but check out the photoshoping, I can tell which is the start, but can you? Things like this makes me sad cause most think this is real. Its like the first time on the internet and you click the links for a free ipod or apple laptop.

Can you believe she is real now?
Or as a real person or being?


She is not plain and simple


Look at that paste my face effect under the hat less human and more anime. Look at her past look on the right, less paste and more human.

And here she is now in 2011. She improved and still is misleading im sure.
I think she belive this is her, and that is the sad part. Hopefully she really dont think this is herself cause that will lead to breaking down when she gets old and Grey and no body is left.

Who knows what is going on in her life but your goal is to not become something so unreal you become lost.

Look at it yourself

Im a wedge girl

I dont like heels; ever since I was a tom boy I would wear the spice girls platforms or wedges.
So you are not going to see me walking around New York with heels.

My reasons
YOU GET TO RUN IN THEM!!!!!BETTER!!!
I want these

This is a city and I walk everywhere so I get my exercise and getting my heels stuck in a floor gate or in a pot hole is not funny, cute, or sexy. The worst is less balance and pain is more on your feet. Dont forget those pebbles in central park.

Am I lazy?
Damn straight. I don’t give a damn about pain equals beauty. That was done with and over after I gave up braids; siting for more than 4 hours getting my head tight and knotted. No way not again (im not saying never). I want to be free and at least close to comfortable. Comfort first or at least most of the time then everything after. Which is why i’m on wigs; no more salon just wait for the mail and *TING* your done

Hells no on this one

YOU STILL LOOK TALL AND SEXY
Why go for the tiny stick when you can get the same but more of the fun effect with wedges. Actually you look more playful; that is what im going for although I have a serious looking face. No i’m serious I get allot of guys telling me to smile; which I cant refuse cause I do so when shy or nervous. Too bad that gets them more excited to talk to me. Oh well what are you going to do

It looks good…but nope


YOU STILL LOOK LIKE A MODEL
Well I get that without the wedges *not tall but appear* and I am sure allot of girls get that on the street or from a person you are buying from. Are you a model question don’t come by only when your in heels. Well it gets you closer now with wedges…..well if you do get asked that. I have pretty internet friends I am sure they get asked that allot. Hopefully they don’t giggle like a school girl……what i’m guilty of. Why, why do I do that; I hate doing that Choco gal blush haha.

WHERE CAN I GET YOU

HEELS ARE FOR SEXY I’M SURE

So are wedges and yet it is more playful. I’m talking for walking around the city , sitting in parks. This is what I do all the time. That and shopping for things (not much of clothes). I personally don’t need heels unless for a wedding or if I feel to out of the blue.

BONUS
I also adore back packs; the one shoulder thing hurts. Another comfort over pain here. I will pick a back pack over a purse in a second. I want more designer looking one but hey girls love the purse. Its not like I am the type to buy the 100$ and over bag…that is right, my limit for any fashion item is 100$ (and that is for an outfit), not even my shoes are over 50$ unless it will last long like boots. Im a cheapo, a cheapo that believe in the fact that you can look good cheap without looking cheap from make up to clothes. I do spurge on art and food. And do not get me going on technology.

Yes a new layout and yes gyaru makeup

This layout was inspired buy this magazine. Can you compare it?
Yeah such an obvious question but everyone does that so might as well ask the standard
brushes by Macys and Morphine on DA
So here is the makeup I pulled out

I did the eyes and foundation here
I am not going to go into details because I am practicing
Here is the highlights on the nose, tip of mouth and eyebrow bone
Better view added eyelashes top and bottom and the cheap way
till I get my better lashes ill make my crappy ones work
Circle lens makes a big difference
This is puffy tone grays; My favorite lens so far

Blush and lips the same color from the eye shadow palette.
Kind of dark pink violet. *cant spell the other real color. What kind of artist am I.*

And done
time to camwhore and photoshop.
Didn’t do that much I have to admitWell this one was PS allot by mistake
*lost original file or something*

I hope to do more of these in the future cause I love this look. The pink lips makes me want to go out and buy some for the choco reviews. Never knew it could be done without looking like a copy of black face. I mean seriously

Art time.

I Finished this last week and the commissioner love it which I am extremely happy for. She didn’t want a background but I do. I do not know what to put there and backgrounds is one of my weak points not because I cant draw it but because since I put so much effort on the characters features and posing also hair especially fabric, which I did take awhile to do and color (the figuring out of it), I forget what I want for the background or never really practice on it. That is my next stop

In other news *ha* I am doing a series of cards for the sailor scouts, all nine of them and luna an if so the other felines to make it up for one deck. This is one of the pictures that is denied for not being anime. Why ? Well im on that and looking for answers, but that can be another story.Not finished with the card layout

Here is my art book collection

These are my fave out of all , I may have like 5 more but didnt bother to show them.
#5 I just got today. Im just like my art , anime with a dash of realistic. My favorites here are (If I can choose ) 4, 5, 6, 13, 18. Five books is enough I suppose

Also on the Udoli video. I don’t think I will upload it. I dont feel it cause my hair is not long enough for me. Im one of those, those who is self conscious about my fro. Soon thou soon ill let go

Im not vegan but I act like one

Well not vegan in general but the route I take is always in a natural way.
Like makeup, SPF and oils.

Now as an African American I am prone to skin discoloration around my chin , armpits* I think is the worst* and eyes. I search long and *ahem*….long to find something that would get rid of it naturally…or get rid of most. I have became an natural addict for the past 2 years. It just started growing on me , and thats because of my hair journey.

So do that equal to one step is enough to change the future steps?
I think its a nice push for example , I don’t like to exercise but if I just start with the legs and get good at it and used to it. I can start with the stomach next, arms, and then the whole body. It do get easy cause of the steps I take. Back to the vitamins and oils.

I have ordered for luckyvitamin.com
When they shipped it Monday I have gotten it Thursday which is today. Very good site well organized and cheap shipping around the New York area. I think around 5$

Now this is not a review but a preview. Im going to test these and use these for the next three months. This is to avoid makeup products that is harmful to my health and this will help in saving money. Like you know when a moisturizer claim to be perfect and always contain something like “infused with olive oil , jojoba oil , grapeseed oil” so…..why dont you just buy those for half the price? AND skip the chemicals.

My skin = Normal.
Only have problems on the menstrual days
My skin do not like green tea rubbed on its face. It could be the company or the tea itself. Ill just never do that again Im left with a scar.

Eco-friendly and all natural


Now Foods – E-oil double strenth d-alpha tocopherol 32000 IU

1 oz. – 5.94$
(non synthetic that is important )
“Synthetic vitamin E derived from petroleum products”
that means it can clog your pores and the oil is not pure natural vitamin oil And that is what I wanted, usually they are expensive, this is the cheapest so far.
What I bought it for? To take away my scars and uneven skin tone.
When I get an even skin tone, you know what that means , less makeup and layering of products more hydration and more money. Do not forget you can take it as a daily supplement to clean you from the inside out.
Texture is sticky , but mix it with another oil like olive oil and it will smooth out.
I suggest letting it soak in before doing anything else , which would take some time. but that is worth it. Your skin will feel so damn soft , it is not even raining out side……..yeah.

The taste? Pretty normal and vitamin-y, oily of course, not sour or bitter just natural.

I trust the Now Foods company they are awesome with 100% natural products

Avocado oil MIXED with jojoba oil
*mixed it myself and didn’t buy form the site but awhile ago*
jojoba oil is my acne trickery. Read up on it
Avocado Oil – elasticity and hydration
*side note coconut oil and grapeseed oil is for makeup removal and quick bath moisturizer.
I use them when still wet out the tub and I stopped for some reason using the oils. Im back on them now*


Nubian Heritage – shea butter Infused with black soap extract, oats & Aloe

4 oz. – 8.51$
dude this smells so damn good oh my goodness.
It smelled so good on my neck (when I tested it) all day.

What am I using this for?
Mostly the Shea butter. This product is 98% organic , that is enough percentage for me.
I have stretch marks and with this and vitamin e oil I cant loose right? Actually it have vitamin e oil. “Reducing acne (especially in combination with African Black Soap)” and I dont have acne but prevention is key yes. Its great for healing as well.Very hard texture yet creamy but it can melt (wait till summer)
Like I said the smell is perfume-ish but like a butter smell, you can smell the Shea in it and the black soap, but more like it have been hyped up

This is my priced piece
DeVita – Natural skin care Solar body block 30 SF
6oz. –17.15$ *a steal cause everywhere I look for it is 20 up)

Rated 1 on the scale
http://www.ewg.org/2010sunscreen/finding-the-best-sunscreens/116119/Devita-International-Daily-Solar-Protective-Moisturizer/
one of the best sunscreen moisturizers Its also Vegan cant beat that. No smell (maybe because im still smelling my shea butter)
goes on smooth and when left soak in nicely

I love it already
So ill take pictures of my stitches scars, my stupid pimple scar , my stretch marks and will not go pass that to my arm pits, that you may see the after if it goes well.

To clean my face im using backing soda just to let you know.
