Aiko 2011 submission by Rokuri Aiko 2011 submission by Rokuri
So I'm impatiently waiting for the Ai-kon mascot contest to be finished so that I can see how I did and see all the submissions that everyone is keeping secretly hidden away! xD

I started colouring this digitally just so I could play with the colours before taking my markers to the original, but then after a while decided to just roll with colouring this way since I was so far along anyway.

But I still take a millliiiiiooooooon yeeeeeaaaaarrrsssss to do the simplest of tasks on PS, so I think markers would have been more efficient in the long run
T_T

2011 is Ai-kon's 10th anniversary so the theme this year was "Celebration" with a subtle incorporation of the number 10 in the picture. :)

Yay!! The colours and pose seem like they would work very well for an icon; I think you captured the 'celebratory' theme very well (I love the little swirly-things)!
Do you know if you can vote for your favourite submission this year?
Oh, also, are you getting a table again this year? I'd love to buy your work again!

Thanks so much! :3 Yeah I'm definitely going to try for a table again this year, also working on a new comic to sell as we speak~~!

The mascot submissions are all voted on by the Ai-kon committee and I don't think they'll put voting out to the public anytime soon. Mainly just cause other than looking for something that has nice art, there are technical things they need to consider as well when choosing the winner. The most popular submission may not have enough colour variation for it to look good silkscreened onto a tshirt for example.
There was someone in one of my classes who explained some of the process to me lol

Thanks! <33 I must say the biggest tip I have for anatomy is to draw from real models (or pictures of course)
I don't know if Theresa's entering this year D: She should! But she's secretive about her art and doesn't show me anythingggggg lol
