Thank you for visiting our little booth at Anime Revolution 2015! Myself and Becky of ScrumptiousDelight shared a small table at the artist alley.
It was my first time selling slightly larger prints of Fan Art, and first time Becky vended at the AR (on very short notice >_<;) I feel like I have a lot more to learn! Compared to a lot of other artists in the area, my work is not as impressive…… ^^;
Taiga sold well (Power of Taiga <3), I was very pleased when people asked for Popura! I hope to bring better work next time! I was also able to do a couple commissions on day 2 and 3 with my limited copic markers ^^; I was very distracted by BlytheCon Vancouver I’m heavily involved in only one weekend before AR, so I was still somewhat in a zombie state ToT; but generally had a nice time interacting with some of the lovely people who came by :D
After being asked a couple times on the first day if I drew the artwork I was selling (o_o;;) I decided to start doodling at the booth as a sample, inspired by Matthew(I hope I recalled correctly!), a Seattle cosplayer who was cosplaying as Accelerator of Toaru Kagaku no Railgun ^o^ I was reminded I really adored Misaka and found Kuroko really amusing hence ^o^)/ Also thankfully my markers allowed me to do this ^o^;
Other commission in progress – Owari no Seraph, Yuu and Mika, had to sketch this one twice before inking and colouring, but thankfully 2nd attempt was okay ^o^/
I was re-commissioned by the two people who asked me for commissions on day 2 so that made me really happy — thank you!
You can see a cropped preview here (Kuroko Tetsuya from Kuroko no basket, Ruby and Jaune from RWBY) by the time I was done, I just hung out at my booth in a slight daze ^o^; The RWBY fan art made me a little sad (made me remember Monty Oum), I hope I did the characters justice!
As always, each experience made me think how I will probably try to do my next one differently, hopefully better.
And I hope to see you at Anime Revolution 2016! :)
BlytheCon Vancouver (9th August) have came and went, thank you everyone who came and supported us! And this weekend from 14 to 16 August, I will be vending at Anime Revolution 2015! Please come say hello! And buy stuff lol!
This year, I have the great pleasure to be vending next to the super talented ScrumptiousDelight! Thank you for agreeing to vend with me on very short notice, as my initial partner very unfortunately could not attend due to personal reasons (TwT!)
This year, I will have 11 pieces of Fan art (Full colour, Letter size), and very limited amount of doll clothes, etc:
Miku Hatsune (Vocaloid)
Saber (Fate stay night)
Rin (Fate stay night)
Hestia (Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka)
Senmei (Anime Revolution mascot)
Chunli (Street fighter)
Taiga Aisaka(Tora Dora!)
Erina Nakiri (Shokugeki no Soma)
Another fan art! :P I finally started watching ^^; I hope to try to pick the characters to draw in time for Anime Revolution :3
I was super amused about Usagi’s voice actress… I can only picture Usagi as Ebichu when I don’t look at the screen ^o^;
Initially her mouth was different, I changed it, as all the mouths I had been drawing are all “O” mouths ^^;
Oops, been a while since my last update ^^;
Here’s Ginko and Yoshi wishing all of you a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
I was also recently commissioned to draw Olivia’s pet bunny, Baxter :D you can follow adorable Baxter on instagram ^o^/
Oops, fallen off the blogging wagon yet again :P End of the year is always really busy for me and family, and not too long ago I was actually in Singapore/Japan for about 3 weeks ^^; Hope to show some photos taken during the trip eventually! :) Ahem recently I noticed that a certain type of cutting have been making its rounds online so… I had to draw my idea of the Santa version of it :P
Before the trip I made a graphic for BlytheCon Vancouver :D On hindsight maybe it should have said Season’s Greetings too lol!
And…. a sneaky preview of the official fabric designs for BlytheCon Vancouver can be found here! All proceeds for the official designs will go help fund the event! :D
Also! Helped the lovely Kuraikawai of murasaki.me created a slightly festive feeling to the Murasaki chan x Puppy Mascot art :3
HooHooHoo! Merry Christmas very soon and a Happy, awesome and prosperous 2015 everyone!
