Artist Alley for BeginnersHave you had a table at Artist Alley before? If you haven't I'm going to give you a list of suggestions for manning your table for the first time. These suggestions are not in any particular order.Artist Alley for Beginners4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1. Do not go overboard.
You may think your artwork and crafts are really great, but it always pays to be just a little bit cautious when having your first artist alley table. The reason for this is simple, you have to test your work in the consumer market. If you become really excited and buy 100 prints for your first convention and only 5 get sold... well you are out a lot of money. If you have many prints have small quantities printed, such as 5 - 10 prints and keep track of what prints sell this will be a good indicator for what prints are most popular.
2. Be reasonable on your prices.
If you are new to the art world you may think you can make a killing selling anime/manga prints. It can be tempting to want to charge $5, $10, $15 even $20 for one of your

I am young and oldI was walking around Canadian Tire with my niece the other day. We were on the hunt for just a small pool, and we were running around the store, having some fun, you know. So we turn around a corner and I see this guy walking down the aisle with a giant lizard riding on his shoulder. It was NOT SMALL. I went up to him and asked if it was actually real, and he said yes. And then he came closer and he says, "His name is Spike, and he's really friendly. You want to pet him?" He bends down and lets my niece pet his friendly lizard, and then I got to pet the lizard. It was quite awesome.I am young and old9 months ago in Personal More Like This
After that we went to the movie theatre to get some tickets to see Monsters University. I was charged as a child (the woman didn't ask me for my age). After that we went to Walmart. I was waiting for my sister to finish her shopping, so I took my niece near the checkout area, sat down, and started to play some tunes on my ukulele. A few minutes later, this old woman comes around and says to my niece, "Is yo

Heyyy time for a rant-ish thing c:Buttt I am not angry~Heyyy time for a rant-ish thing c:1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm just like eh.
Okay today's rant is aboutttttt~ ASK ACCOUNTS C:
So basically, I see loads of OC ask accounts and stuff, complaining about having no questions. Same thing for canon characters of whatever, that have an OC-like twist. (For example; how the character is in your RPs and stuff, not in the canon thing).
But it's getting kind of annoying when you see 40 rant pictures and journals of accounts yelling at you, about why you're not asking them stuff.
But Rose is here to answer your question: People generally have no interest in original characters.
Especially when your OC is a girl.
I know what you're thinking, "UNTRUE, you're just saying this because ___(insert reason here)___".
No. It's a general thing. Let's face it; a LOT of an anime's population and such that creates OCs are girls. (Not saying OC-making is a girl thing, or whatever, it's just true; 90% of the time the fanon is made up of 90% girls). Girls get jealous of girl OCs. W

I haven't been online for a while, so much school and work, no time for cosplay!
I also live very far from the nearest cosplayer or photographer, so photoshooting needs very much planning!

Artist Alley First-Timer? What You Need to Know!
A little advice after my time at the artist alley.
An original article by Scar23
Artist Alley: My First Time!
Many of us have been to some form of comic or anime convention and traveled through the artist alley. The first time I ever went to a convention was WonderCon in San Francisco, California, and the first place I stopped was at the artist alley. I remember being so surprised that there was actually a place completely devoted to artists. After browsing through the artist alley and meeting some of the artists, I thought to myself, “One day, you’ll be here, too.” About 5 years later, I was coerced into getting my first artist alley table at Sac-Con in Sacramento, California on March 6th, 2011.
Preparing to have an artist alley table was one of the most stressful t

We drove for six hours. I hate long car rides, so I made myself sleep for a lot of it. After that we stood in lines. Very long lines. But I'm glad we went up a whole day early just to get our tickets because it was nice walking in the next day without having to worry about lines. The volunteers running the lines were good sports, though. XD Our original plans to go to the beach fell through because we arrived a little later than expected and by the time we finished standing in line, it was too late. :C So instead, we decided to get Subway, and watch Spanish soap operas.
On Friday we were "fancy Vocaloids!" ChEsHiRe-K and :
