Art Style Reboot

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 11, 2015, 9:44 PM



So I've been really uninspired with my art lately but I've been inspired by some DA artist to try and do more detailed work. So I may be retiring my old anime work and just practicing on doing a semi-realistic detailed style. I'm also going to be closing off commissions and such for now. Pretty much experimenting to see if I like this better. Maybe it's just cause I'm getting older my art is maturing a bit. Again this is a bit of an experiment because when some artist move from anime to realism it either looks good or awkward so I'm going to practice some more. But I'm not going to be very active on this account anymore. Thanks to friends of mine who have been watching me since the beginning :3 Hopefully my art will continue to get better.

Hey guys quick update

So Christmas is a round the corner I still have outstanding pictures form last year -__- as a result it's impossible to do my yearly thing of drawing pictures. Even though I don't post on Deviantart believe me I've been busy drawing things on a daily basis. But it's for private client work so I can make it public.

Not much going on otherwise, graduated at home unemployed and feeling like a bum. Anyways drawing goes on. Hopefully I can get a chance to go to Geekfest in Boca this weekend, fingers crossed they have  table open. :)

Thanks for still watching me even though I barely update anymore. Anyone have any good anime recommendations?

AFO is a no go

So AFO is a no go, by my own choice. A combination of a not very good artist alley experience last year and costs to attend wouldn't be worth it.
AFO's artist alley has gone downhill since from what I remembered a couple years ago. They cram everyone on tiny 3.5ft tables when the average artist in artist alley needs, not wants, NEEDS a whole table to properly display their merchandise to attract more customers. Last year I had to keep half of stuff behind the table because I couldn't display it. It's slightly annoying. And we're forced to buy a 3day pass with purchasing a table. $75.00 and only one badge. Not to mention costs for hotel, and transport to get up to Orlando. Maybe if we were able to get a whole table sure. But why should I spend, $300 (not including the  $75 table fee) to get up to Orlando, to have a 3.5ft table space, have people screaming at me when my 1 single friend tries to keep me company behind the table, as per the rules yada yada. No thanks. -__-; I'm going to have stick with local cons so Mizucon is going to be my next one. And possibly EXPcon because St. Augustine is near and dear to me ;__; and I want to go back. I think that for artist alley if they are going to make us pay for a 3day badge, put us inside the dealers room. And give artist an opportunity to get a whole table. I like AFO as a convention but their artist alley experience each year keeps ruining it for me and the return isn't worth it.

Wow haven't posted in a long time. I'm really trying to make an effort to be more active on Da ;__; I'm afraid my lovely followers will forget about me.

Anyways I'm in a dilemma I'ce literally sold out of all of my watercolor and ink drawings *_* and HOPEFULLY, if they ever get back to me I would have a table at AFO to sell stuff. Not like I need alot of stuff since AFO gives it's artist like 3.5ft of space *__* Just wide enough to maybe have 2 folders open. So now I'm in a scramble to just barf out drawings as fast as I can to at least have something to show

You wouldn't think I've been drawing by my lack of updates but believe me I have. *_* So much so my wrists want to fall off. I just can't post more on Da because it's work for clients or my comics which I can't share here.

However now that I'm out of school and unemployed and useless at my parent's house I can attend some conventions I hadn't had a chance to before. So the current lineart (possibly is)

:bulletblue:AFO (Orlando)
:bulletblue:Mizucon (Miami)
:bulletblue:Umicon (Daytona)
:bulletblue: Expcon

No out of state conventions though. Too broke -__- to fly out of Florida at the moment.

It's a shame I don't post more digital stuff, but I've grown quite attached to doing traditional work to give my poor eyes a break from the computer.

Also going back to conventions. I'm sticking to my no print policy. =p I don't like making prints even though you can make a lot of money off of them. I rather sell original work. I think it's more meaningful. I have tons of prints just sitting around but looking at them makes me sick. Just duplicate copies of the same thing -__-;  I want to be driven to make new things all the time instead of making 10 things for the whole summer.

Anyways that's all I really have to say. Back to drawing, comics, freelance work, and trying to make new things for future conventions.

:bulletblue:Has to be original content, no existing IPs.

:bulletblue:You don't have to have a comic published with us to participate. So its open to all artists.

I'm still super busy with senior projects and stuff bu I'm going to try and make an effort to get these done BECAUSE!!

I want to open up commissions, not for myself but for SEQAPUNCH
We're doing a fun raising on Kickstarter here --> www.kickstarter.com/projects/1…
and we're about 11% there, and I wanted to offer up commissions for anyone who donates anything. So the money goes straight there. If we fail to fund the project in the time left, we lose all of our funding and everyone gets a refund ;___; so in order to not let that happen, we really need to get some support. However, I feel guilty because how the heck am I suppose to except commissions if I have 25 I owe peeps. ;___; I'll draw anything.

:star: If you donate $1 - $5 I'll do a sketch
:star: If you donate $5 - $15 I'll do an ink
:star: If you donate $15 I'll try and do a quick digital drawing

PLUS- When you donate $10 you get a copy of the magazine once it comes out.
Help us. :iconawwwplz:







:star:DONE:star:
I'll be holding onto them till around the holidays

Starting a comic magazine and need comics!

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 7, 2012, 9:17 PM
  • Listening to: Static Revenger
  • Reading: Watchmen
  • Watching: Nanaka 6/17
  • Playing: Sims
  • Eating: Mac n Cheese
  • Drinking: Pepsi



Of course the anytime I update anything is to shameless promote some project I'm working on, Lolz :3

~~




I would like to invite you to submit a comic to an new comic anthology
called Seqapunch.

:star:What is Seqapunch exactly?:star:

Our goal is to get independent comic artists published in a quarterly magazine and hopefully
distribute it in local comic book stores and online. We're a start-up and we're hoping to publish
our first issue in about 2 months granted we get enough comics. Which is where you come in
:D Artists can submit anywhere from 1 -20 pages. So we're looking for short complete stories. or maybe simple 1 page gags.

For more information, I invite you to visit our website. Go to Seqapunch.com --> www.seqapunch.com

So yeah anyone interested in applying to get published contact us through our contact page :3

~~

In terms of my personal work. I'm being crushed with programming classes, as well as being whipped by my sequential class to draw superhero type characters, like beefy men with tight asses -__-; I mean I'm glad to learn 'correct anatomy and all' but I just want to draw my cute anime characters. I'm drawing anime for people who enjoy it, including myself, it's my fun.

So yeah. Hopefully by spring break or when I graduate I can hopefully have more freedom to draw anime :3 while looking feverishly for a job.

Xmas art gifts are closed.Also contest win a game!

So I closed later that I expected, but I am no longer accepting addresses to get a freebie art for X-mas. If you sent me an note and you are't on the list let me know plz. I kinda just close my eyes and point at a random avatar in the list and work on theirs. :3 Just remind you guys, I'm not doing 2 sketchs, but rather 1 full color watercolor.

Also I'm having a contest at :iconharvest-moon-cafe: to win a free Harvest Moon game of your choice! That's right 3 winners will receive a physical Harvest Moon game mailed to them. :3 Go to the club and check out the journal for details.

As for life related things which I don't really say much about these days. MY LACK OF ART HERE ;A; I am drawing! I swears I draw everyday but they are things I can't post in my journal. For example art assets for my 'Sketchy Ecchi Game' -- > sakura02.net/Game_Ecchi_story.… because that would be spoilers. XD plus they aren't anything good. Sketchy Ecchi is just my crack visual novel idea I'm doing for fun. I'm also working on more on game related stuff, which are like 3D models and such which I doubt anyone would be interested in. This is strictly my anime only dA account :p maybe some realism but that just goes in scraps. There will be a flood on new images though at the beginning of next year after all the art as been mailed out and I can upload them.

Also not art related I'm trying to organize a game engine in flash for my studio 2 project. I like scripting in Flash it's fun so that's what I've been doing instead of drawing digital art like I should. Also Joseph and Yusra :> sakura02.net/JosephYusra/Josep… forget about them. I don't upload the pages on DA anymore but on my own website so I may get some pennies in ads

Sakura's Annual Free Christmas Art!!

  • Watching: Nanaka 6/17

Hey guys :D So I am finally done with finals and I can work on some cool stuff again.


WHAT FREE ART?

I'm getting a head start on my annual free art Christmas gifts. I do this to thank all the people who watch me ;A; Either way anyone can join, as long as you are willing to note me a mailing address to which mail the picture to. I've done this twice an I keep everyone's addresses confidential of course.

Check out the sketchs I did previous years. Last year I sent out 40 packages with 2 sketches each ( A total of 80 sketches *_*)
- Three dudes by sakura02 Guy in the snow by sakura02 Tyson Hilary kawaii by sakura02

HOWS DOES IT WORK?

Send me a note with your mailing address and I'll add you to the list.
This year I'm going to take it to the next step and do something different. Instead of doing 2 sketchs I'm going to do 1 watercolor picture. :3 The catch is, you don't know what it is!! You can't request what you want, I pretty much snoop around in your favs and get a feeling for what you like and draw that. Could be fanart, OCs dunno? It's a mystery surprise !!
Then I send you a package with the orginal art.

- No requests
- Must be mailed, no digital pictures, and no scans.

LIST?

I'm going to be doing over my list *_* so you might need to send me a note to let know you are interested (and actually read my journal :dance:)
because I don't know if mailing addresses changed or what. As I said anyone can enter, you just need to tell me where to mail the package. :3

:star::star::star::star: :star-half: 4/5

Good

:bulletpink: Nyan cat cosplay
:bulletpink: Good food
:bulletpink: Soo many doujin to chose from
:bulletpink: Got to go to 3 panels ;A; the most I've been to in 5 years I'm so happy
:bulletpink: Got an autographic from Atsuhiro Iwakami  the producer for Madoka Magica :heart:
:bulletpink: Got some cool fanart from some cool artists
:bulletpink: Rave was awesome and met someone from my class back at college randomly *_*
:bulletpink: Got to DDR at the game panel for a bit

Bad

:bulletred: Getting scolded by Otakon staff for running around with people with Nya Cat ;__;
:bulletred: Not getting to go to moar panels. Missed like 3 I really wanted to go to
:bulletred: Spending way too much money ;A; Now I'm broke
:bulletred: I offered an artist who drew Joseph and Yusra a free comic book, but she refused to take it because she said she had too much stuff to pack >_>; I was slightly offended





:star:NEXT AFO THIS WEEKEND:star:

So I managed to get into artist alley Yeah! But I will have like.. pfft 2 ft of space, since I'm sharing with my BF -___-.. because I need to make up for my lack of displaying stuff and I need to sell off my art.

All my left over drawings will be 50% off the marked price. Which means original inks and sketchs will be selling for $1 - $5. Watercolors will be $10 or less.
Commissions will dirt cheap since that's the only thing I'll have space to advertise and sell.

:bulletpink: Watercolors - $10 (2 characters)
:bulletpink: Inks (Sketchy Inks) - $5
:bulletpink: Sketchs ( $3 )

I'm heading up to Otakon :D. I'm planning to splurg all my money on Artist Alley and craft stuffs. Cause I like to think of myself as sorta an anime artist alley art collector of sorts. :d I must have at least over 50 commissions over the past 5 years that I've bought.  I'm going to be cosplaying, or rather walking around with a huge freaking Nyan can billboard thing. So if you're going there and you see Nyan Cat that might just be me. :D Not much to say at the moment, just looking forward to geeking out once again. This will be my first convention in like 5 years where I'm not going to be doing ANY Artist Alley stuff, and I might even get to see some panels for once. I really don't care how shitty they might be, it's all in good fun.
Peace out!

Metrocon Report 2011

Metrocon according to my friends was " DAT ASS" convention cosplayer butts everywhere!! in skimpy bottoms and leotards. One we weren't even sure if she had any underwear.

As for me I was just chilling out at the artist alley all weekend. It wasn't bad but it wasn't particularly good either. ;__; I think I was outdone by my fellow artists who were selling lotsa cheap buttons and other goodies, which I did not have, not even prints because I'm kinda of tired of selling prints. Instead I invested a lot to print out some comic book and sold practically none of them.  No 'XD boys', maybe 3 'Joseph Yusra' and 1 'Harvest Moon doujinshi' I wrote. Proof that no one likes original stuff XD. Guess for Supercon I gotta go back and stock up with Hetalia stuff since that's popular. Either way I saw lotsa friends I haven't seen in ages. :D I love you guys :glomp: even if I didn't really sell much it's still worth it chilling out. My boyfriend who was right next to me didn't sell any books either ;A; but did like freaking over 60 Homestuck drawings XD. Lolz. It was fun.

So I had my huge SD doll on display with me at the table and he creeps my boyfriend out so much. My boyfriend has even threatened to set my dolls on fire, he' a jerk like that lol. So I laughed my ass off when a girl came by and saw my doll, then turned my boyfriend and commissioned him to draw her dollfie. LMAO poetic justice. As he's drawing the dollfie he was like bitching to me that it was my fault.

He was like. "I can't really see her jacket in that picture"
me " That's a boy"
him " What the fuck! That's just wrong!! WHY!!!???  "
me " That's just a dollfie thing, very effeminate guys *grin*"
him " >_> *glare*"
me :w00t: teehee


Hmm.. quite sad, usually I would post a list of the cool new people I met but I neglected to go around and introduce myself to a lot of artists. ;__; I was just too tired.

Although Monday was kinda epic fail because I was trying to leave from my boyfriend's house to make that 4 hr drive back to Fort Lauderdale. My car alarm just would not STfU very embarrassing. The remote didn't work and when I tried to open the driver side with my key the alarm kept going off. -__- so obnoxious... I couldn't even start the car because my car locked up. Then I got yelled at by my parents for not coming back sooner. So much bullshit. Either way I made it back in one piece can't complain.


So what now! 2 weeks till Supercon. I am going to do original work anyways because I like giving someone an original drawing. Prints just kinda became soulless for me. Supercon is going to be my give away convention I'm just going to have a bin with just a crap ton of free shit. Pens, pins, bookmarks. So who is going to Supercon? :D

OMG CONVENTION SEASON SO EXCITED

OMG it's almost summer!!! And you know what summer means! CONVENTIONS OMGZZZ
Delicious Artist alley goodness. I miss all you guys.. and even though I may or may not have forgotten your faces because it's been a year, please don't hate me. So conventions I have lined
up are



ARTIST ALLEY UPDATE

:bulletpink: METROCON- Tampa [Artist Table confirmed]
:bulletpink:SUPERCON- Miami  [Artist Table confirmed]
:bulletpink: OTAKON- (no artist alley just derping around)
:bulletpink: AFO [??? Pending] OMG I'm being juried. Fingers crossed I'll be one of the 24 artists choosen to participate.



So I have 2 artist alleys secured already.. I kinda wished I could do one more ;__; but I guess I gotta work on other projects.

I've also decided for artist alley, I'm not selling any prints anymore. I want to be known as the artist who sells traditional works of art. So I'll be primarily selling original sketchs, inks and watercolor works. A bit more expensive, but hey it's original one of a kind. :3 I just love original work, which is why I buy commissions more than I buy prints. Although I'm going to be gathering all my left over prints in bulk and selling them in folders for cheap. They'll still be stickers, of course. Because I freaking love stickers.

OH and if you guys wanna see fan-art of any particular animes let me know. I know I wanna draw some Madoka Magica stuff that anime is sooo good O_O; OMG.



PROJECTS UPDATE

So for the summer I'm going to get back to working on Sketchy Ecchi. It's about 13% done with now, and I've written well over 2 thousand lines of code. It's schedule to be released next year either summer or winter.


I'm also going to getting back to Joseph and Yusra. My two darlings who I've neglected for the past year. They are getting their own website. A friend of mine gave me this awesome code so my comic automatically organizes itself into 'back' and 'next' pages. My website is a bit of a mess, but once I get the time to clean it up next week I'm going to be putting ads on it and hopefully get some kinda income ;A; maybe. I dunno a couple cents.

Website--> sakura02.net   … working on it, only Portfolio is up and running)

Joseph and Yusra page ---> sakura02.net/JosephYusra/index…


My next project I'm going to be working on are video tutorials for Photoshop and maybe some on Painter Sai. I mean my art isn't the greatest but I'd like to share some tricks and shortcuts on Photoshop. So that's my new project I'm going to tackle.

Also working on some comics to sell at conventions. 2 HM doujins, XD boys (collaborations between my awesome friends :iconmelfinacosplay: :iconuzumakiaya: ) I 'm going to have more books of Joseph and Yusra,  So I have quite a line up of books. I'm about 50% done with the Harvest Moon comics. They are each about 32 pages long, standard doujin size. :d


HOWEVER until then, this week is the last week of finals and I'm practically dying here. But I'm also dying to get back home so I can start working on me website and comics. *w* I'm kinda a workaholic, I'm excited about all the projects I'm working on. :d Work work work.

Sorry for being inactive for soo long but I'll be back in the next week with new artz.
For some reason I feel even more like an anime dork than ever. Lotza artzy people here in college are kinda sobbish about anime and the ones that do watch anime are all like..' Yea well I don't really watch anime unless it's something really goof. ' Pfft. Whatever different strokes for different folks. Anime kinda has this negative connotation with annoyin sugar crazed fan people who can't draw much of anything else... *shrug* whatever I don't care. I like what I like.

Anyways before that turns into a useless ramble, I will end here. :D
