HAM Con 2014 (UK Manga Con details in description) by lillilotus HAM Con 2014 (UK Manga Con details in description) by lillilotus
Hi kids! ^_^ Wondering where on Earth I've been for the past month? Well it's really quite simple - I've been busy with my A-level art and media coursework, and I've also been working on this!

Our manga club, HAM Japan, (dA here: HAMJapanUK ) is hosting a Con; and as *ahem* official Hamja designer, I was very kindly asked to design the promotional posters  totally didn't nag them into letting me do it The BIG OFFICIAL PLASTERED-EVERYWHERE-IN-YORKSHIRE version of the poster is on their account, and it has all the details on it; so if you want to sell or just attend, check it out! I'll be selling there! :D

I enjoyed designing the kimono for Hamja; I was actually inspired by my old neighbour to try a new technique ^^; She's currently at Uni in London doing fashion, and she has an FB page, and uploads pictures of her fabric patterns. I think they're really pretty, and I really wanted to put one into the textures of a picture! Unfortunately, they didn't quite work for this one, since I wasn't able to change Hamja's hair to fit with the fabric, so instead, I went onto Photoshop and found some pretty stamps, and mashed them all together until it looked good enough ^_^ *genius technique right there*

Visit for more Con info;
we've got AnimUK selling, some really cool artists, a weapons panellist, and K&K Productions coming up! (K&K Productions did a live-action DragonBall Z trailer - it's really cool ^_^ Here; I'll throw up a link;… That is a really long link O_o )

Art copyright to me! (and partially to HAM Japan? They're the ones using it....but I was the one who bled into the picture :XD: )

Also, a list of UK Cons got released recently; including the one I attended on Saturday, which isn't listed for some reason, there are only 4 Cons in Yorkshire. I know that there's more people in London (8) and other really big cities; but I don't know if the rest of the country is aware that Yorkshire even exists! Everyone in the UK; come to HAM Con! We've got Le Tour de France coming that same weekend, and we've got pretty scenery! And Sheep! :D

I saw this image on a flyer for this event in Leeds last week and picked it up because of this character.I particularly liked the kimono fabric and thought how good it looked.Now I know how you did it.

I noticed your dA URL on the flyer and that's how I found your page

My friend in my Japanese class may be interested in going as he often goes to conventions.I might go with him if he decides to go.
