Heyo, not much to report here. I’m in the process of moving to a new house so that has been taking up my free time lately, but I’ve been working on some self-indulgent fanart of good series that I personally would like to see more of. Unfortunately, my ambition is greater than my drawing ability, so these aren’t perfect yet, just wanted to share with my readers! I will probably have these as small prints, currently working on sourcing some charms (not of them lol) and stickers, and who knows, maybe some jewelry and original art.
Alucard (Adrian F Tepes from Castlevania)
And can’t forget D, another dhampir from Vampire Hunter D.
Check out my etsy shop or my tictail shop for the new Repede (Tales of Vesperia) and Lailah (Tales of Zestiria) acrylic charms, each one customizable. $8 each, includes your choice of keychain or phone strap and decorations!
Here was the necklace I made for the art show using one of the Lailah charms I made! Thanks to whoever bought it, hope you rock it!
Also, if you were at my table within the first 2 hours of Saturday’s artist alley and dropped some cash somewhere at my table, please contact me with the amount you think you dropped and I will return it to you… somehow.
I managed to get off work early and had a fantastic first day at Aselia-con today! Thanks to everyone who came by and said hello to me in my closet peasant-Velvet cosplay and TOP from Bigbang, he was my invisible helper lol. If you are missing something, visit me tomorrow for my probably last appearance at Aselia-con unless my work schedule drastically changes next year. I also have a Lailah-themed necklace at the art show, as well!
I unfortunately work the weekend of Aselia-con AGAIN but my helper may be there Friday, and I will be definitely there vending Sunday in the artist alley with yet another cadre of new characters and (fingers crossed) new acrylic charms! This year due to my work schedule I do not foresee myself in Lolita or cosplay or at cons that much, not even A-kon, though I will make an attempt to go to an Austin con. But I will try to update my online shops, my local patrons will have to suffer shipping fees in the meantime.
Be sure to check redbubble every Monday for their usual weekly sitewide 20% off sale! Here is my latest offering, a cute shiba inu design for the year of the dog this year!
Here is my annual end of the year art survey, month by month my best or favorite pieces. I guess I technically drew every month but they were commissions or sketches or just too ugly to spotlight, haha. I didn’t have a very good year in terms of improving technique, but I drew a lot of okayish videogame fanart for conventions, a lot of inktober pieces and that’s all right. Next year, if I ever get my computer fixed, I want to focus on anatomy of hands, doing traditional inking with sumi-e and calligraphy and just really taking my coloring/rendering to the next level. But if things don’t work out drawing-wise, which is likely, I may do something else with video editing and crafting instead! We’ll see…

And a cute photo of my table setup and helper from the Otakutober artist alley event!
Now here are some of the halfway decent fanart pieces I drew during Inktober, which I technically finished by the way! I drew something from almost start to finish every day, even if some things were adding to a previous piece, lol. I did enjoy fiddling with traditional media, not only ink but pencil, markers and white-out, and feel ready to get back in the game some day!
