Convention Prep, it Huuuuurts

Okay, I said I was gonna quit disappearing on you guys when I did’t have updates, so here I am, with the typical set of excuses. Yes, another con demands my attention. I’m attempting to have enough stock this time that I might actually take home some profit. WHY IS IT ALL I CAN COME UP WITH IS GUNDAM WING FANART??? Gawd, I’m old.

Tried my copic markers for the first time on these arts…and I’m in love. They are so nice. X3 Using smooth bristol board (NOT vellum! I murdered a darling 1X2 picture because it was vellum!) gives it a vaguely watercolor look, and they blend beautifully. (There’s some epic tutorials on Deviantart, if you’re interested. Ecthelian’s is my favorite.) Anyway, as soon as I finish anything I’ll totally share here!

…I had to run away in the middle of writing this because there was an alarmingly long peal of thunder outside. You ever hear thunder or planes passing overhead and become convinced it’s the end times? Happens to me perhaps too much… Eh, someday I’ll be right! *still planning on having an ‘end of the world’ party Dec 20th, 2012, if for nothing else than the lulz*

Any suggestions on what I should draw/marker? I have all these sketch cards to fill. I did one of L. I did one of Light. GW is covered, of course. Aaaand that’s where my creativity ended! *mustn’t… succumb… to zutarian urges!* I have this feeling, like once, long ago, I may have been somewhat creative.

Eek, thunder! *runs*

    Man, I'm so far out of the loop, I'm not sure what to suggest. I think Naruto is still disgustingly popular if you can stomach up the willpower to draw some of that. Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya stuff is always fun.

    But if I were a customer at a con, being me, I'd go for some Vocaloid or Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha goodies, especially if the later involved good butt-kicking magic or action poses. I'm a huge dork though, and while Vocaloid is catching on here in the US, it seems like almost no one I talk to knows Nanoha. *le sigh*

    How about pikachu? (thunder being the recurring them of the post and all XD) Pokemon is big again right now with the new versions just having come out, and even if some won't admit it a lot of anime fans are closet pokemaniacs (guilty), from the games at least if not the show too.

    Hmmm… I think CLAMP's Tsubasa is still a little popular, and Fullmetal Alchemist still hasn't died yet. Naruto is still disgustingly pop, and so is Vampire Night. Dragon Ball Z is another classic that might never die, especially since they just started to re-release the Dragon Ball Z-Kai version.

    I used to live at the end of a runway. Every year there's an airshow for a week, and on Saturday they did the Wall of Fire. All the Warbirds they could drag up did flyovers, and then they did a fake bombing run and blew up the end of the runway (or just past it).

    There was no hearing anything for about two solid hours, four till six, because it was all engine noise ending with a huge rolling not stopping boom.

    I moved away. Then they changed it to a night show.

    Good luck with the thunder though! We got nailed with a couple good storms here too (so I heard), but I heard the thunder and just went back to sleep. LOL

    I agree with the Vampire Knight, you might enjoy looking into that is you haven't already, Snipes. (Hell, Lyrah, ya have good idea there, Fullmetal and Tsubasa I keep running into on DA too) Draw Ed dressed as Duo and Roy as Heero or something, Snipes . . . *snerk* that'd be funny.

    New reader, love your comic.

    Had to post this link so you can use it for your End of the World Party:

    It just proves that the end of the world is, indeed, great for lulz.

    I don't care about your conventions, I live in a completely different part of the world. We get Armageddon once a year and that's about it.

    NEED COMIC UPDATE!!!

    That's a rude thing to say. Why should Madsniper update if her fans are jerks?
