Artist Alley First-Timer? What You Need to Know!

Artist Alley First-Timer? What You Need to Know! A little advice after my time at the artist alley. by ArtByMelissaM (https://www.deviantart.com/artbymelissam) :star: An original article by ArtByMelissaM (https://www.deviantart.com/artbymelissam) Artist Alley: My First Time! :bulletred: 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

My Bio
I am a digital freelance artist. Current works include STARSHIPS, a tabletop miniatures game, and Aliens Built My Hot Rod, an upcoming card game. My webcomic is on hold until I finally figure out a plot for the next story. When not working, I prefer to draw landscapes and still lifes.

On a personal note, I'm an avid consumer and artist of slightly-fantastical slice-of-life manga, gamer (traditional and video games), an inline roller hockey goalie, a wannabe bassist, an archer, a gourmet cook, and a collector of far, far too many hobbies.

What I've been up to lately

What I've been up to lately

Plein air drawing, mostly! Pix in the gallery and there'll be more. Teaching myself perspective. That kind of fun thing.

Been a long time since I've updated ...

Been a long time since I've updated ...

What I've been up to: took a year off due to burnout and moving and ongoing equipment failures. Finally back in action. I've been working on pieces for Starships for the most part, for the past few months, and now working on some of my landscapes that have been sitting for a while. It's nice to be back to work. Maybe someday I'll get back to that webcomic ... still need a plot for that, though.

Headed up to AnimeExpo tomorrow!
