Greetings and Salutations Watchers and Passerby!

In accordance with my previous journal, I'm trying to post more art, and more regularly. However I've come to a small hiccup in that particular plan.

Most of my current projects are Commissions, or other pieces I can't post just yet. For example, I'm doing art for 3 different Tabletop RPG systems. (all by different authors) and since they're not published yet, I can't really post the work.

That said, I do still want to give you guys some art, and post work as regularly as possible.

My proposal is a series of quick pencil sketches, I'll try to post at least 3-4 times a week, or more often if this proves easier or quicker than anticipated. I was thinking that when I put together ENOUGH sketches, I might do up a book collection for purchase!

Anyways, I'd like to know what you guys would like to see from me? simple suggestions please! Something along the lines of 'fairy dragons' or 'werewolves'.  (These are not commissions, so I won't be drawing 'my character'),

Thank you!

-Jianre M.

Greetings and Salutations ~ Watchers and Passerby!

I'm trying to post on a relatively regular basis now... I'm trying to Work on Proffessional Artwork closer to Full-time instead of Part-time.  What this means for you guys is more artwork! Hopefully every other day or at least a couple of times a week.

What it also means is I'm a lot more open for commissions than I have been previously! So if you've been waiting or thinking about one just let me know what you're looking for and I can either post a 'Commission Page' about it, or give you an estimate.

Feel free to poke me if artwork isn't appearing very often... I sometimes get really absorbed by my projects. ;)

Greetings Watchers and Passerby!

Sorry I've been so quiet lately, had a lot of well... LIFE stuff to deal with, things have been kinda busy this last year with boring stuff. But enough about that. On to the NOT so boring stuff!

ANIME EXPO 2015!!

We, As in those who contribute to 'Star Dragon Studios', will be at Anime Expo again this year! You can find us at booths D79 & D80. which is facing the back wall along the right side if you're just entering the Dealer's Hall. (seriously, if you follow the right most wall of the room, you'll find us there. not far from the restrooms.) For those of you who said Hello last year... we are in the SAME PLACE!! So please do stop by!

Look for the Black Curtain Backdrop and the Star Dragon Studios Banner!

Hope to see you there! and have fun!

-Jianre M.
Greetings Watchers and Passerby!

I will be attending Califur this year in Irvine California! it will be this coming weekend May 30th through June 1st. (late notice I know... sorry!)

for those of you in the area it will be at the Irvine Marriot Hotel.

my usual partner in crime at conventions, :iconjayetta: Jayetta will be volunteering at the convention itself as staff, instead of residing behind the table, but she'll be around and we might have a few of her finished pieces available as well!

one of our newer partners in crime at conventions, :iconseru-crescent:
seru-crescent will be aiding me and showing off a few of her own creations for the first time! Hope to see you there!!

-Jianre M.

Greetings and Salutations, Watchers and Passerby!

 

So my Convention Partner, :iconjayetta: Jayetta and I got last minute Artist's Alley Tables at Anime Expo!

 

we had a good first day yesterday, and hope today will be even better!

 

if any of you guys are going, we're down the middle towards the back. at 127 & 128 (or just 27 and 28 if they labeled it wrong?)

 

hope to see some of you soon! we're in the booth  "...covered in black with a gold shimmery table skirt with a three paneled backdrop with fabric; Gold with bamboo leaves, green with symbols, and then black with bamboo leaves respectively." as my partner describes,

 

either way, you guys have fun! and I hope you had a good Independence Day!

Back and There Again...

Back and There Again...


Greetings and Salutations, Watchers and Passerby,



Things have been pretty crazy the last little while, and I've been meaning to give you guys an update for some time now!


First off, After much searching and effort, I have found a new job. (I've needed one for some time.) I currently work as a Security Guard with the company "Staff Pro". What that means is that I do Event Security, (Conventions, Concerts, Etc...) My hours are rather erratic, but the work is very interesting! ... For example, I worked Security for the 2011 Academy Awards, it was fun seeing all that set up, and I even 'badged' Anne Hathaway in the back hallways. (didn't recognise her at first, but that's what we were supposed to do anyways.)


Secondly, On the morning of March 27th 2011, my Maternal Grandmother passed away. She'd been ill for a number of years now, and recently her health had been declining rapidly, it was never-the-less somewhat of a shock, (as these things almost always are.) when she passed. Thankfully she passed in her sleep and painlessly, I've been working hard since then, both helping with the funeral services, and cleaning up her home. That has helped alot.


That news does lead rather directly to my Third Update, With my Grandmother's passing, my Mother, (and consequently our family.) inherited my Grandmother's house, so we are in the process of moving. We have a self-set deadline of the end of June to be finished, there's ALOT of work involved, packing up and cleaning/fixing both places. I loved my grandmother, but she was old, and let alot of repairs slide in her place. (understandably).


That said, it will be nice to have a stable place to live, and it's bigger than our current place.


So yeah, very busy, but that's helping and in alot of ways I feel better already than I did.


Just wanted to give you guys some heads-up, I know you've all been incredibly patient with me, hope to talk to you all more soon!


Thank You!

How do you WANT to Adopt Dream Pets?

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 3, 2010, 5:43 PM





Since I do realize that 'writing stories' for Dream Pets is not something everyone can do, I've decided to ask for your input...

How would you like to Adopt a Dream Pet?

Do you like the story writing?

would you prefer to draw a picture? (like the most recent Tuzzle I posted.)

Do you want me to post some 'first come,... first serve' Dream Pets?

Or is there some other challenge you'd like as the qualification for Adoption? (Maybe a mix of the above?)

I'd really like to know what you all think, so please give me some feedback so I can get YOU more Dream Pet Adoptables! :aww:


-Jianre M.

___________________________________________

What are Dream Pets?

Dream Pets (as I'm tenatively calling them) are adoptables, or vitual pets, drawn and designed by Jianre M. (me.)

For those of you unfamiliar with 'Adoptables' or 'Virtual Pets' in general, they are online 'animals' that one can own, collect, and display. Some times there are more options, including a stat-building effect of some kind or beauty contests. But for now, my Dream Pets, are just cute, collectible critters that you can claim individually as yours. (the concept of each animal and the rights to them still belong to me.)



How to Claim your own Dream Pet!

For the most part, unless I specify otherwise, the new 'eggs' I post up, can be claimed by posting a story for them. "Why you want it, or how you found it", these stories are judged individually by creativity, effort, and the suitability of the story to the Critter in question. I hope that the new owners would be inspired to continue their stories as their pet grows, as I will be posting the story within each adoptable's description!

For those of you less comfortable with writing projects, I will also be holding drawing contests, with Mystery Dream Pets as the prizes!

And if that still doesn't work for you, you can purchase a commission of your own CUSTOM Pet of your choice... though I'll post more details on that further down.



Contests!

As of yet... there aren't any... but if anyone has a suggestion for one I'm listening. ^_^

Califur 6, 2010 - Damage Report

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 7, 2010, 3:32 PM



Califur 6, 2010 - Damage Report


Greetings and Salutations Watchers and passerby!

As my title might indicate, Jayetta and I managed to attend the Califur Convention!

It wasn't actually planned, since we'd missed the registration deadline to get tables, and we weren't planning on going to any conventions this year due to complications.

But we were contacted by the 'Dealer's Den' coordinator, who'd had some cancelations, and offered the opportunity to go. And we decided to take it.

It was very fun, like it has been the previous years, and I quite enjoyed it. Saw some very interesting products, and met some interesting people.

We did pretty decently at the convention, considering the preparation was a bit last-minute, and I'm pretty happy with how things went.

^_^


... on a slightly related note, I had an Idea I'd like some feed-back on.

If I were to bring Soda with custom Art on the labels to conventions, would you buy it? (glass bottled sodas. ... NOT made by me or labeled by me.) If you saw a bottle of soda with fanart on it while at a convention, does that sound like something that might be interesting? Or purchase worthy?

I'm interested in hearing your thoughts...

Thank you.


((P.S. oh, and for those of you who are curious, this journal was ALSO programmed by my awesome brother :iconamascusmage: amascusmage <- :boogie: ))

The Return of Dream Pets!

Journal Entry: Sat May 1, 2010, 9:56 PM





As the Title Indicates, the Dream Pet "Adoptables" are no longer on Hiatus, and hopefully things will proceed smoothly from here on out!

First Notable Upgrade is this nifty new Journal CSS, Courtesy of my Older Brother
:iconamascusmage: amascusmage
(though I did the artwork.)  

It will hopefully make it much easier to denote journals dedicated to the Dream Pets, as apposed to ones with information about myself or other art-related things. :D

Anyways, thank you for your time, and I might still take a few Commission/Subscription exchanges if anyone was interested. ;p

-Jianre M.

Dream Pets... temporary Hiatus?

Fri Feb 19, 2010, 1:37 PM

.: Purple Lights




... My sincerest appologies for my silence...

and for those of you who have or are looking for adoptables, ... I WILL be continuing them, but I hit an unforseen snag.

My previously trustworthy computer, had recently decided to randomly DELETE files...

and the first casualties were 90% of the Adoptables files I had finished and In-Progress.

LUCKILY, I still have the backup Core File, (as I call it.) but I'll have to do some serious modifications and editing to get everything back up to par with how it was before my hard-drive's strange hiccup.

I've also had to pain-stakingly back up EVERYTHING onto DVD's and Flash-Drives, and I'm in the process of trying to wipe and reformatt my drive so as to hopefully prevent this kind of problem in the future.

My computer is not really cooperating, so it's taking longer than I would like... but I hope to have it fixed, and the Adoptables back on track very soon.


So sorry for the delay!

in the mean-time, I hope to finish a few designs and line-arts for new adoptables, while my computer's in transit. ^_^


Thank you very much for your time and patience!

-Jianre M.



P.S.

For those of you unfamiliar with my Adoptables, "Dream Pets" ... I have more information on my previous journal entry, Here -> jianre-m.deviantart.com/journa… <-

Dream Pets - Adoptables

Wed Dec 23, 2009, 2:58 PM

.: Purple Lights




What are Dream Pets?

Dream Pets (as I'm tenatively calling them) are adoptables, or vitual pets, drawn and designed by Jianre M. (me.)

For those of you unfamiliar with 'Adoptables' or 'Virtual Pets' in general, they are online 'animals' that one can own, collect, and display. Some times there are more options, including a stat-building effect of some kind or beauty contests. But for now, my Dream Pets, are just cute, collectible critters that you can claim individually as yours. (the concept of each animal and the rights to them still belong to me.)



How to Claim your own Dream Pet!

For the most part, unless I specify otherwise, the new 'eggs' I post up, can be claimed by posting a story for them. "Why you want it, or how you found it", these stories are judged individually by creativity, effort, and the suitability of the story to the Critter in question. I hope that the new owners would be inspired to continue their stories as their pet grows, as I will be posting the story within each adoptable's description!

For those of you less comfortable with writing projects, I will also be holding drawing contests, with Mystery Dream Pets as the prizes!

And if that still doesn't work for you, you can purchase a commission of your own CUSTOM Pet of your choice... though I'll post more details on that further down.



Contests!

As of yet... there aren't any... but if anyone has a suggestion for one I'm listening. ^_^



Current Types of Adoptable Dream Pets:

SQUIDGUM
Adopted - A1 : Caiden by Jianre-M Adopted - A2 : Autumn by Jianre-M Adopted - A3 : Bauble by Jianre-M

TUZZLE
Adopted - B1 : Mite by Jianre-M

So far, there is only two types of Dream Pet, but I promise more are on the way. ^_^



What is the "Complexity Rating"?

As some of you may have noticed, each Dream Pet has a complexity rating!

The complexity rating, has to do with how difficult or complex the creature's design is, and therefore, how much more time it might take to make Custom versions. So the complexity rating also determines how much it would cost to commission your own pet of that variety or a similar one.

The Ratings go from 1 to 5 stars and work like this:

:star::star-empty::star-empty::star-empty::star-empty: - 1 star: Extremely Simple - Little to no detail.
:star::star::star-empty::star-empty::star-empty: - 2 stars: Simple - Small Details
:star::star::star::star-empty::star-empty: - 3 stars: Moderate - a decent amount of detail, extra limbs, ect...
:star::star::star::star::star-empty: - 4 stars: Complex - Intricate details, many limbs, lots of small parts.
:star::star::star::star::star: - 5 stars: Extremely Complex - (i.e. Movie Transformers)



What are Custom Dream Pets?

When someone opts to commission their own Custom Dream Pet, there are several variety to choose from:

:bulletblue: Custom Coloration of Existing Dream Pet.
basically you get to pick and choose your own colors and patterns on an existing pet.

. . . .       -$5 to $25, depending on complexity of Pet and Coloration.

:bulletgreen: Existing Dream Pet Modified.
with this commission, I'll keep the poses of the pet, but I'll change some details, (i.e. add horns, wings, longer claws, ect...) you also get the same custom colors as the above-mentioned commission.

. . . .       -$10 to $50, depending on complexity of Pet, Coloration, and Modification.

:bulletpurple: New Adoptable Creature.
You can pay me to create a whole new species, and the first one will belong completely to you. You can choose how specific you want it, or just give me a basic gist and see what happens.

. . . .       -$40 to $100, depending on complexity of the Pet Concept.

:bulletred: Dream Pet Breeding Program.
If you can get permission from the owners of two Dream Pets, you can opt to breed them together, ... provided they're gender compatible of course.

. . . .       -$5 to $15, For pets of the same species and modification (prices depend on complexity of coloration.)

. . . .       -$10 to $20, For pets of the same species with different modifications (prices depend on complexity of coloration.)

. . . .       -$30 to $80, For pets of different species. (prices depend on complexity of Pet and Coloration.)



Feedback is Appreciated!

If you have any comments, questions, or concerns about Dream Pets, please let me know! ^_^

Hello Again!

It's been a really long time I know, far too long really.

In case any are curious, I haven't really been online at ALL... as in 'anywhere'. Haven't been answering e-mails or messages of any sort.

BUT ... to calm some worries, I'm perfectly fine! ... I just got burned out for a bit, ... and I was reading... alot. ^^;

I don't really have an adequate excuse/explaination for my absense aside from apathy, I just found myself inordinately uninterested in creative endeavors the last few months... My best guess is a little overload,... but I'm not really sure, I wasn't depressed or unhappy, just unmotivated.

ANYways, it seems to be fading fast now, so I'm trying to get back on track with my usual hobbies.

I'm sorry if I was ignoring people, I know I pretty much WAS, but I'll try to make up for it.

.
.

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE NEW... as in watchers or +favs, ... normally I extend my gratitude to each and every one of you individually, but there were just TOO MANY to handle when I came back, (like 1,000+) so I had to delete the lot of them.

So for all of you new guys, (or old guys who like my work.) THANK YOU VERY MUCH! :aww:

.
.

CONVENTIONS!! ... I'm sure alot of you are very curious what happened here... well... um... Jayetta and I need to work out some issues, and really restructure our business. Alot of red-tape stuff, and building up our stock, but suffice it to say we ended up having to cut BACK on our conventions due to unforseen complications. I'll be updating the list of attended conventions really soon.

.
.

ARTWORK: ... well... this part's kinda embarassing, but I have a whole stack of images READY to upload,... I just haven't been DOING anything. >.<  ... heh, sooo.... I'll be updating lots of pictures!! ^^;

.
.

FANFICTION!! ... erm... I HAVEN'T actually been writing, though I do have the next chapter of "Once More, With Feeling" half finished... never-the-less, This is one of the first projects I'm reviving. (now that the strange apathy is gone.) I just don't know how thoroughly or how soon I'll get back into the swing of it.

.
.

TO MY WATCHERS/WATCHEES: ... As alot of you know, I'm willing to give critiques to those who want them, .. however, I just DON'T HAVE TIME to pick and choose images to critique from my friends! ... So if you want some advice or commentary on a particular peice, PLEASE feel free to ask! ... otherwise it probably won't happen!

.
.

That's about all I can think of at the moment, I've been missing you guys, even if it might not seem like it, and I hope you're all not terribly upset with me!

Much love!


-Jianre M.

UPDATE:

A Charming Collection by Jianre-M
Here is the complete collection of jewelry peices Jayetta and I have made with the charms. ^_^



Gold Splashed Moon by Jayetta
The rings would use this style, but we don't have any finished yet.


_____________________________



My Convention Partner, :iconjayetta: Jayetta and I, have been working on a Collaberative project. (which I'm sure alot of you have heard about repeatedly by now.)

anyways, I've been drawing up little chibi characters,  Like These:
FF7 - Super Chibis by Jianre-M Super Chibis - Set 2 by Jianre-M

Which I'm pretty fast at, and then Jayetta and I affix them to the backs of little half-marbles, (flat-marbles, gems, whatever.) Like THESE:
Super-Chibi Charms by Jianre-M

From these little "charms" we can make jewelry, like this:
Reno - Collab Piece by Jayetta

or these:
Random Charm Pairing by Jayetta

(Please note: ... Random Pairing, is RANDOM!!!)


What I want from YOU guys, is more suggestions for characters!

I don't really want suggestions for entire games, or anime series, but the individual characters you'd particularly like to see, and possibly like to buy!

I did the Final Fantasy 7 set as my test-run. I know those characters well enough to draw them quickly and mostly without references!

anyways, for the suggestions I'd PREFER if you use this format:

Characters Name
Story Name
Story Medium  
Cannon References

So, for example:

Vincent Valentine
Final Fantasy 7
Game/RPG
upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia… accel6.mettre-put-idata.over-b… api.ning.com/files/WEJSTMfdCED…


Thank you.

Greetings and Salutations Watchers and Passerby.


... It's been a while hasn't it? I've been rather scarce around here, and I very much realize that. (and appologize for any whom I worried.)

I'll explain that, I promise, but first let me give a breif synopsis of the last two conventions I attended!

_____________________________

COMIC-CON.

As some of you may have noticed, Jayetta and I only had Art-Show tables at Comic-Con, as opposed to Artist Alley tables like we prefer.

Now the upside to Art-Show is that we aren't required to man the tables, (in fact it's discouraged.) the downside is that not nearly as many people see that stuff, and it's ALOT harder to sell one's work.

... in fact, I didn't sell ANYTHING at Comic-Con... which was... rather dissapointing. But we're gonna make a solid effort for Artist Alley tables next year!

BESIDES that... we actually had a WHOLE lotta fun at the convention itself! as we expected, there was tons of free swag to get, and lots of awesome things and people to see.

Jayetta and I actually ended up picking up Naruto Shippoden Plushies (for FREE) since she actually WON both of them, she gets to have Kakashi, and she gave me Naruto. (though we share them of course.) ... contrary to what alot of people might think... I actually kinda like Naruto, the series is entertaining... (though I prefer reading the manga to listening to "BELEIVE IT!") So I'm quite happy with a Naruto plushie, even though I haven't gotten as far as Shippoden. (by a long shot.)

got alot of other swag too, Shonen-Jump bags, note-pads, Sticky notes, Jump ropes, t-shirts... I also got a Carlisle Crest Twilight Ring. :dances: I'm REALLY happy with that! (though I might touch up the paint job. ... :p ) I also got a Scooby-Doo collar. (which I actually wear... XD I think it's fun!) and other miscellanious stuff.

We saw alot of anime, and got to hang out with some cool people, so it was very fun, and quite the learning experience. ;)

We did take a loss though with the convention itself, ... which is a pity. Ah well... better luck next year!


_____________________________________________


Anime Festival Orlando (AFO)


Jayetta and I had one Artist Alley table between the two of us for this convention. (partially due to some communication issues, and partially due to fund issues.) but we had an EXCELLENT spot! So it was great!

The plane ride was rather tiring, (being a 5 hour trip all together, not including Layover and time differences.) but thanks to my great friend "Kitsune13" (from Fanfiction.net) we were able to get excellent rates on a close-by hotel... and it was a COMFORTABLE hotel too!

Florida was beautiful! Everything was so GREEN!! ... and there was plant-life and lakes everywhere! didn't see too many bugs and never spotted any snakes or gaters, but we were in the middle of Orlando... so maybe that's not as much of a hot-spot. XD ... it was a whole heckuva lot muggier than I've ever experienced before... I'm much more used to hot and DRY ... not hot and "steam room".

Anyways, as to the convention itself... I had an absolute blast! That was one of the most relaxing conventions I've ever done! ... mighta had something to do with the fact I kept taking off to attend panels and get signatures from Voice Actors. (of which they had an awesome selection. :boogie: ) ... there wasn't much demand for commissions at this convention, which is why I had the free time...  again... it's the furries who always seem to ask where-ever I go. :giggle:  I enjoyed it anyways. we saw alot of cosplay in Orlando... while it wasn't the most populated con I've attended, (by far) ... the shere percentage of people cosplaying was ASTOUNDING!! More than half of the people there were in costume by my estimate. and there were alot of them in REALLY REALLY GOOD costumes too! Saw alot of characters I've never seen at cons before too. (like the Disney princesses and Jessica Rabbit.) and I missed a few I'm used to seeing alot of (like Zack Fair, and Cloud Strife)

Hanging out with Kitsune was NEVER boring! that made it ten times more fun! ... She had some great Tifa Lockhart Costumes she was working on. (finishing up for Dragon-Con she says.) Looked good so far to me! ^_^ ... but more than that, she's gonna try to go to Anime Expo next year if possible... so I'm gonna try to make a cosplay of my own by that time. >:D ... we'll see if I can pull it off. :plotting: (about time right?)

we did decently well at this convention... especially for a first-year attendance. but we didn't quite pay for our Plane-Ticket costs. (not that we expected to yet.) ... either way, I'm VERY happy we went! I needed that... alot... it was strangely stress-relieving, in a way the last several conventions haven't been.

Oddly enough, I'm less stressed, EVEN THOUGH the airports lost and broke several of our things. (copic Markers, the button maker, copic marker cases... display items.) We're claiming for damages of course, but despite all that I feel better.

We DEFINITELY want to go back again next year! So those of you who saw us there, and are saying "hi" we're doing what we can to come visit again! ^_^

________________________________________________


Yeah, this is already a long journal,... I know. ^^; ... but bear with me.

GENERAL UPDATE:

now for my usual watchers, I'm sure you've been wondering what the heck happened to me right?

well... at first... it was just the back-to-back conventions.

First Califur, then a bare week before Anime Expo... that took out alot of my time, and wore me out. ...

Then after Anime expo I was supposed to have two weeks free... but I ended up getting TERRIBLY SICK. ... I caught three or four different bugs all at the same time, stomache flu-ish thing, a sinus infection, a nasty cold and I was completely exhausted and unmotivated all the time. there was maybe one or two things I could get up the energy to do and that was it. Unfortunately art wasn't really one of them, neither was I up to chatting much.

that took out all but a half a week or so of my 'break' ... and then I was off to Comic-Con... I didn't have much of any internet access then.

After Comic-Con, I had THREE DAYS to do any last-minute preparations for Anime Festival Orlando and then I was off to FLORIDA. (from Southern California.) ... No time to write or comment then either. :faint: ...

So basically I've been completely out-of-it for the last two months or so, either prepping for conventions, or getting sick, or both.

I finally got back from AFO... and I recovered from all the Jet-lag and time difference stuff, caught up on sleep, somehow seemed to avoid catching any other weird bugs, ... and now I'm FINALLY feeling like myself again! So I'm gonna get all those pictures formatted and start uploading again, I might just do a daily update for a little while just to catch up... XD ... but expect to see some ARTS from me!!! (about time right?)

Once again... I'm sorry if I worried anyone, I'm not angry at anyone, no one drove me off, I'm not sick anymore, and I'm not ignoring anyone on purpose... It's all me. Promise.

Anyways, thanks for putting up with me you guys! ^_^ I really appreciate it!



.... OH!!! ... and I had my BIRTHDAY!! :dance: (for any of you who actually read this far.) ... I'm now 24... my birthday fell right in the middle of Comic-Con... so haven't done much for it yet. :giggle: it was July 25th for those of you unaware.

my older brother Khodexus turned 26 on July 26th!! :giggle: :rofl: :XD: go say happy B-Day to him too! :D

Thanks again you guys!

until next time!

-Jianre M.

Greetings and Salutations Watchers and Passerby,

My Convention Partner, :iconjayetta: Jayetta and I just got back from the 2009 Anime Expo Convention.

This convention was our BIGGEST convention last year, and so far it has kept that record for this year as well!

I am very pleased with the outcome of the con itself, even though it's rather expensive to attend and work at, we had ALOT of business and great opportunities! We sold a ton of buttons, and potions, those seemed to be the real hot items this year, and with the sheer quantity we sold, Jayetta and I will be footing for a bigger better button press! ... what that means, is we will have more sizes, and we can drop our prices a little since they will be easier to make on the new machine. ^_^ (YAY!! No more hand-cramps!!) We've got alot of styles, and I'll be uploading a picture of the new ones soon. :3

We met alot of people this con. Saw some old faces and some new ones, hung out with friends and made a few more.

Most notably, I met up with my old friend Sordoth, whom I had not seen in 7 years!! We used to go to school together! and he only very recently found my deviantART and we started chatting again. Meeting him once more in person, and catching up with stuff was great fun! :D

seru-crescent was a MUCH MORE official Table-stalker at this con, since we signed her up as a helper, and she was a GREAT HELP! I don't know how we would have kept up with everything without her!! She's also adopted a new screen-name based on the nickname we dubber her last year bishi-lover.

I was shocked and a bit thrilled on the last day when sambees came over to Jayetta's and my tables and requested an art-trade. (HECK YEAH!!) so we got some LOVELY prints in exchange! and bought some adorable buttons 'cause we couldn't resist! XD (Reno of course.)

I got: Eyes of a Wolf -LoZ TP- by sambees
Jayetta got: The Defiant - Yhihre by sambees
and we both share: Life in His Eyes by sambees

:XD: That was very cool.

We got to hang out quite a bit with the other artists this year, it was a real blast. ^_^ didn't wander much though... the booth was always crazy-busy. But I DID manage to run over to the COPIC booth and snag some awesomely "on sale" markers. ... and the marker-wallet that came with if you bought enough. XD ... I also got a complimentary Copic reference "how-to" book thingy, but more awesome than that, I got to have it signed and sketched in by the Copic Japanese Artists! :boogie: the little chibis are SO CUTE!!! I'll have to take a picture! :excited: that and it was absolutely mesmerizing to watch them draw... so fast and efficient. :wow:

anyways, suffice it to say I had an absolute blast at AX this year! ^_^ definitally looking forward to next year!

I did somehow manage to catch a nasty cold after I got back, and I'm currently trying to fight that off, but I'm not going to let it diminish how much fun I had at con... it just makes me slow to do much that's productive at the moment... ^^;

anyways, it was great to see everyone there! Thanks so much! ... Next up... Comic-Con! (though we will only have art in the Art-Show... the rest... we'll be WANDERING!! :D )


-Jianre M.



P.S. ... We're Still VERY MUCH open for more suggestions for the "Chibi Charms" Please, let us know what you'd like to see!

Greetings and Salutations Watchers and Passerby,

My Convention Partner, :iconjayetta: Jayetta and I just got back from the 5th annual Califur Convention.

Califur marked a bit of a mile-stone as far as conventions go for both of us, it's the first convention we've worked a second year in a row!!! ^_^

This year was MUCH better than last year! :D

We've both learned alot, and planned better, and it all paid off in this second experience,

First off, we switched from the "Artist's Alley" to the "Dealer's Den" this year, which was a great success! Even though the Dealer's Den costs money, and the Artist's alley doesn't, there was ALOT more space, and security. Very much worth the price.

Furry Cons are very different in feel from Anime Cons, ... So as expected, I sold a WHOLE lot more Commissions! and less reproduced product. The convention was fun and facinating, with lots of our local (and less-than-local) Furry friends dropping by for a chat and a visit. It was fun to see Commissions I'd completed at previous conventions proudly displayed by the furry fans.

This year I got to see the fursuit-parade, (which I missed last year.) ... WOW!!! :wow: I kinda wish I'd filmed it, because the costumes were just amazing! :D So intricate and detailed!!  

We both had alot of fun! and even though Califur is a smaller convention from some of our other ventures, it was a great event. Definetally going again next year! :boogie:


Oh... and I bought myself a Tribble!! :dance: I just couldn't resist... XD (yes I mean a Tribble as in "Star Trek", ... I got the 'purring' variety ... it amuses me to no end. :D )

Anyways, we're hoping to add a few more Furry Conventions to our list if we can. ;p

If you have any suggestions let me know. ^_^



-Jianre M.



P.S. ... We're Still VERY MUCH open for more suggestions for the "Chibi Charms" Please, let us know what you'd like to see!

Greetings and Salutations y'all!

Wow, where do I start? Fanime was certainly an experience! :D

Although We never quite aquired a 'table-stalker' this convention, we had alot of 'return visitors' that hung out with us for a while. The Artist's Alley itself was pretty fun, business had alot of 'eb and flow' ... more than previous conventions at least. The hall was quite large and comfortably spacious in my oppinion, and the air-conditioning was JUST right! ^_^ which was nice.

Lots and lots of new faces, and we got to meet a few people for the very first time in person! :XD:

As far as I know, we did pretty well at Fanime, (business-wise) so we're definetally planning to go back next year. ;) I quite enjoyed myself.

Outside of the Artist's Alley, on the few occassions we got to wander, it looked like there was alot of fun to be had.

We even got PROTESTERS. :rofl: which I found absolutely hillarious! ... They were apparently from some Christian Group or other (never did figure out which) who decided that because the convention permitted Scantily Clad Cosplayers, and all the other weird anime references, that it was a "sin" and "evil" or some such nonsense like that. (hence my amusement.) ...

The convention attendees shared my enthusiastic incredulity, and gleefully paraded in front of the protesters dancing and singing the "Numa Numa" song, (A.K.A. "Dragostea Din Tei" for those of you who know the proper name)

Good times. :giggle:

Next highlight of our after-Alley hours, was watching a Sailor-Moon Cosplayer mop the floor with the break-dancing brigade in the main hall. All those big tough boys showed up by a petite lil' Sailor Scout. :lmao:

That had me laughing all weekend.

All in all, I was very pleasantly impressed with the Cosplayers, there was alot of good company, alot of possitive responses and feedback for my partner's and my work, and a generally enjoyable weekend.

Still a bit tired, and con-lagged, but I had fun, so it's all good! :D


Next up... Califurr! :boogie:

Greetings and Salutations Watchers and Passerby!

Jayetta and I, had been particularly excited to try and attend A-kon together this year. Last year was alot of fun for me, and I was looking forward to hanging out with :iconkriscynical: KrisCynical again.

However, as far as we can tell, this will NOT be happening. As much as I tried to stalk the A-Kon website, I couldn't locate the specific information as to WHEN and HOW to register for the Artist's Alley until it was too late.

I am STILL not entirely certain how I was supposed to go about it. :(

So much to the dissapointment of all involved, it seems we will be unable to attend.

We WILL be putting in extra effort to attend Anime Fest.

but unless someone knows something I don't about A-Kon. Or has a table they'd be willing to sell me. (HIGHLY unlikely.) I just don't see how we can do it.

:( :cries:

______________________________________________________


On a Different Note.

My little Super-Chibis:
FF7 - Super Chibis by Jianre-M
and the subsequent Charms:
Reno - Collab Piece by Jayetta
:iconjayetta: Jayetta and I made of them, were quite popular at Anizona. So I beleive we will be making more of those. ^_^

they were QUITE fast and easy to do for me. So I think a good size stock of various characters would be QUITE doable.


HOWEVER, ... Since I never consider myself a good judge of what other people want to see. I'll be taking REQUESTS for characters to do. (no this does not entitle you to a free charm. I will simply be making these characters available.)

I will draw them up as "In-Order" to the requests recieved as possible.

LIMIT 3 CHARACTERS per person, per comment. (I will be checking.) ... you CAN post more than one comment, but PLEASE at least wait a while before doing so. (or better yet, wait until I finish your first request(s) before asking for more.)

anyways, please submit requests in a format something like this:

Characters Name
Story Name
Story Medium  
Cannon References

So, for example:

Vincent Valentine
Final Fantasy 7
Game/RPG
upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia… accel6.mettre-put-idata.over-b… api.ning.com/files/WEJSTMfdCED…;

Thank you.


-Jianre M.
