Sorry about the lack of updates, guys. I have five more papers to do by this Thursday. The last half of the quarter has been way busier than expected.
Much needed updates for commission clients will come as soon as they are done. Time permitting, that should be by night tomorrow.
Thank you so much for your patience. Blessed be having the ability to go to college, but it’s making me realize that my time management needs some oiling with efficiency.
I just wanted to let you know that my friend Shastina raved about meeting you, Storei, and Zee! <3 She said you were all super sweet and so talented and she loved the things she got! ALSO GOOD LUCK ON YOUR FINALS, KICK THEM INTO THE SUN
Ahhh aw man, Shastina was a big sweetie! We did a rad Puella art trade but she didn’t get to pick up her part, I’ll post it on Tumblr, but I can definitely ship it to her if she’d like! q____q
Hey guys! I’m finally settled down after Fanime. It was really exciting getting to meet so many people, whom I remember but can’t list without properly explaining how great they were in a single post. I either didn’t have the energy or time to leave the table much, though, so thanks for sticking around when you had the chance!
I have some scant leftovers from the con that I’m going to sell on Storenvy as soon as I get that information up. Other than that, I have a mondo pile of commissions still left over that got ahead of me, either due to poor time management or because of midterms and con prep. I’m going to iron some out tonight, since I do have finals and moving out to do next week.
Either way, thanks for your patience! And, strangely, because there seem to be a lot of new people here, thanks for stopping by!!
Would anyone be interested in a Gumroad sketchbook as a pay-what-you-will/free thing in the future? I’d be working on a Moleskine over the summer and uploading it around late September, and it’d be filled with character design sketches and environments of varying quality. I was curious about it since many people seem to be looking into it as of late!
(now to go back to doing commissions)
Hey everyone, just wanted to spread the word on the location of Fanime’s artist alley. It will be located in the South Hall, which is in a giant tent at the very back outside of the convention center. I’ll be in there!
For everyone going to Fanime!
I’ll also be there in the Artist Ally with Photinus and MrGid. B) It’s gunna be a sweet party yo.
For those attending fanime, here’s a heads up for where the artist alley is going to be this year! I’ll be sharing a table with my friend who really needs to set up her art blog ((i’m staring at you kaitlin)) so you should come by and check us out! *u*
Fanime’s the reason for all of the fanart binge lately! We don’t have our table locations or numbers… yet… please be sure to check out mrgid, thesweetprince & acarron, and etherelle & I’s table if you’re there! Feel free to send me a message on tumblr if you plan on going to the con (esp. if you’re a fellow AAer!) and I’ll keep a lookout for you and hopefully have something small in store for you, haha…
(We’ll be the ones with an obnoxiously bright yellow tablecloth.)
Of course you should~ They look like teeny game pieces.
I might! and HAHA i am glad, they’re stand-ins for chess pieces…
@kotaline: lies down on u and cries
i started playing off but i am so impatient with turn-based combat now oh my god haha, and i used to play…. final fantasy tactics……………
I’M GONNA DO IT THOUGH, i really like the batter.
Goodness, already? It feels like we just finished our 100 follower giveaway, but now there are 200 of you wonderful, awesome artists following this blog - hooray!
To celebrate, we’re doing another giveaway. Like last time, to enter you need to send an ask or fanmail starting with ***ENTRY***. After that, you need to write a short (one or two sentences) statement about something you’ve learned by doing Artist’s Alleys that you think is important! (If you haven’t done one yet, you can write something you’ve learned by getting ready to do so!) Both the header and statement are necessary or the entry will not be counted. Please keep in mind that this statement will be published on this blog if you win! After that, you’re done and entered! Unlike last time, as bonus, you can get an extra entry by reblogging this post once. You need to have already entered the normal way for this to count!
Now, onto the prizes - I’d said that we’d be giving away five itty bitty easels, but that has changed a little…
Instead we’re giving away six itty bitty easels - three natural and three black! There will be six winners to this giveaway, one easel each, and those who get back to me first after the winners are announced will get to pick their colour.
This giveaway will run for one week, and end at 11:59 PM Pacific time on Thursday May 9th, 2013. Winners will be chosen at random from amongst the entries at that point. Good luck everyone, and thanks for following!
If you guys frequent conventions as Artist Alley people, be sure to check out this blog! They tell you a lot about production costs and where to get stuff printed, which is honestly stuff I didn’t know a lot about before now, haha…
IM GONNA KISS ALL OF U
LOOK FOR ETHERELLE & I AT FANIME
I’m not asking this to disprove anyone, I’m just curious. And, if you choose to read the answers people may give, please don’t judge them for it. If you want to keep it confidential, feel free to leave an ask. Thanks!
At first Willis was just some nameless drow character I based after an avatar I made on Gaia for a Halloween event, LOL… they (ambiguous gender) were a weird thief type (wow) who traveled around by orb walking.
After that I joined an Ivalice fan guild on Gaia and decided to make Willis an RP character there as a female Hume Rogue in the Saggitarius (???) alliance. I didn’t do much there because I either left Gaia or the guild fell into inactivity, but she floated around somewhere as an Ivalice fan character I made a character sheet for and did Absolutely Nothing with. She was technically a sky pirate whose personalty was unabashedly similar to Vaan’s, and traveled around with a blacksmith through a dystopian Ivalice.
Around 2011/2012 I think I started to pay more attention to Willis, but that’s when they received a huge personality change and story revision, mostly because I wanted to write a man vs. nature story and replayed Klonoa 2 too much. Now they’re a hermit of an ambiguous gender with little to no concept of the world with a complete fixation for cartography, whereas before they were a highly intelligent, highly worldly hyperactive Manic PIxie extrovert with many friends.
The grey hair happened ‘cause one day I accidentally changed the opacity of the color layer, which I stared at for a while and said “ok cool” and this is also the most uneventful story ever i apologize
Thank you guys for the suggestions! I made a fairly big list of an extraction of both that and what I’ve seen on my dash.
