Looks like I'm doing it! I'm running a panel at Ai-Kon called "Intro to Digital Art". Time should be available on the schedule, and I'll update this post when things get concrete.

Attempting art on a new medium can be scary.. but it's really a lot easier than you think! Dip your toes in the water with beginner tips on how to create digital art.

I'll cover tools such as which software and hardware options are available at which price points with a showcase of different methods to get you started! Focus will be on introductory guidance on how to transition your colouring, shading and inking to the computer.

I'll be bringing an assortment of different tablets to the panel and hopefully we can take someone's drawing from the audience to show how fun the process can be!

My art links - and

Hope to see some people there!

Edit : I had a pretty crazy near-instant spike of page views with a quick on-the-mark winner.. followed almost immediately by notes from other people with suspicions / accusations of unfair play of the winner.  Keep in mind, I didn't know any of the people sending me notes.  The spike ended immediately after 15,000.  It feels like it was hijacked and my regular watchers didn't even get a chance to see the contest.

So... I'm just going to cancel this for now as I figure out what to do. 

Push back to some other number?  I'm not sure.


No, I'm not there yet.  It looks like I'm 66 page views away from having 15,000 pageviews.  Paltry, yes.. but I figured it could be an opportunity to find something new to draw!

Whomever sends me a screenshot of my pageviews closest to 15,000 without being under gets a coloured waist-high character drawing of their choice.  Original or fan, doesn't matter.

I copy/pasted these rules from dashofcreativity because she's way better at deviantart than I am.  Seriously, go watch her for better art and fun times!

About the kiriban 

- It will be at 15,000 pageviews!
- When the pageview count on my profile hits 15,000, take a screenshot and then send it to me in a note.
- If you miss the exact number, you can screenshot what you do catch and send me that. If nobody gets the exact number, the person closest will get the prize!
- In the event of more than one person getting the correct amount, the first person to send me a note with their screenshot will win~ I'll update this journal when someone wins!
- You don't have to watch me in order to win.

So, yeah!  That's a thing I'm putting out there.
Siobhan over at dashofcreativity is having a 9,999 kiriban contest and a raffle, and I want in on it!

YOU can get in on it too, if you go to her journal!  Kiriban at 9,999 views (OPEN) + raffle (OPEN)!!

Good luck everyone!
Well, I went and created a Tumblr account.  Mostly because magickfaye is on there and she sometimes reblogs my art.  At least this way it can go back to the source!

Also, I kind of like seeing my stuff in a nice grid.  It's a nice way of browsing my stuff.  Of course I didn't put everything up there.  I think I'll only put stuff I'm moderately proud of (at the time).  In terms of timelines I only went back to like mid 2014.
So I bought Clip Studio Pro when it was on sale for 70% off.  I couldn't say no to $15.00 for a program that mostly does what Photoshop does. 


I'm currently in a little bit of an art slump.  I've done two rough sketches and wanted to try them in the new program. 

Picture 1 -… - Uninspired, I don't like the design of the face or pose. 

Picture 2 -… - I like the idea, really fun.. but not fleshed out in the least. 

The problem is I'm not sure if it's not working out for me because I'm not doing well without photoshop, or because I'm giving myself crap source materials. .. or just because I'm not motivated to do art right now. 

Also, I might be crazy, but I think there's a teeeeny difference in the way that brush strokes are displayed then handled between PS and CSP.  It's like it's overestimating in CSP and I actually need to stroke further than the brush indicator shows. Does that make sense?  I don't know.

Saw my stuff?  Oh no!  Did you make it out to my art panel there? :D
8Nephila8 Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
No, just did a general search for Keycon on DA and saw your Team Tech Entry.  :) 
I don't participate much in the art part of cons.  I probably should. I just don't think I'm there yet.
mogstomp Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, you better be Team Tech as well!

And looking at your portfolio, I think you'd do decently!  Especially with commissions I bet!
