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

So... here I am again

So... here I am again

Well, well, well.. Obviously I haven't bin around much and suddenly: BAM more than one picture within 2 months.. must be frightening. No I am not unemployed or seriously ill. I just got a bit more time at the moment and rather use it for art than essential things like cleaning up the house befor emy parents in law come by... I still need to do that one day or an other. Anyhow. In the meantime I changed jobs to a different location and I am much more happy and much more skimmed, but it is worth it. Otherwise I visited Thailand last year which was a great experience and I am still living in England, even though I moved a bit outside of town

I am still alive.. yet again!

I am still alive.. yet again!

Hi there everyone. Well after quite some time I just wanted to let you know that I am still alright. I enjoy a new country (from Germany to England) and because of that I had not much time to write or keep up with all of you. Yet again I am very sorry for that. Thank you all for the favs and the comments you write. It encourages me to do more and improve. I still got a long way to go, but every critique helps. Well.. I am working on a lot of pictures right now. I am not too sure when I will be able to finish them, since I do not have my copics here yet (soobs) or a scanner of that... As soon as I get a permanent residence in Carlisle ev

And yet an other try to sell one of my pictures... it is "Game over" the link for the action is: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150473109274&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT So if you want it, come and get it *smile* besides that I am in quite a lot of stress which is why all my pictures I am working on are on hold right now, but don't worry I'll be back in no time and finally finish that new Fanart and all the other stuff I started to do. I remember now why I never was able to become a real professional Artist: I get distracted. But oh well, It is a turning point in my life right now, so I guess it is somewhat legitimate. *sm

schwanger o.o wow. etwas, was ich mir selber garnet vorstellen könnte. zum glück bleibts mir auch erspart x.x
aber NACH der schwangerschaft wirst du eh zu kaum was kommen. schlafmangel, blanke nerven, lust zu garnix. ich kenns doch aus meinem freundeskreis. da haste noch was vor dir, bis das kind dann halbwegs alt genug ist und ein wenig mehr ruhe gibt oder du dich einfach dran gewöhnt hast x'3 kann natürlich auch anders kommen. bin ich ja mal gespannt was draus wird. of du nen kleinen nervkeks kriegst oder doch ein ruhiges kind. wobei du wohl gespannter sein wirst als alle anderen x) glückwunsch dennoch. kinder sind ja nicht gerade das schlimmste, was einem passieren kann ne? :D
