For my main project 'Key to My Heart', here is the link:
A coffee is nice, but i prefer tea!
Despite having a 2:1 in Computer Animation, i want to become a concept artist-if there's something that looks wrong, please tell me how to improve said piece(s).
I'm so tired of comments like:
"This is such an awesome picture."
"The pose is well done"
And anything similar to that.......
I'd rather have comments like this:
"This is a good picture; though i've notice [insert something wrong with picture and tips on how to adjust it /not to make the same mistake again via tutorial link] But on the whole, not too shabby"
That is a critique, the only time i may ask for no critique is if i'm venting about something personal.
I can't improve if all you give me are ass-kissing comments.

Hi folks, I’ve returned from ComicCon.
Here is my report from the three days (well, two days)
Friday 26th October
I left home at 3:30pm to catch the train to Liverpool street, soon, I made my way out from the station and walked it to my hotel (its about half hour to 45 minutes to the place).
Soon I made it there and unpacked, afterwards I made my way to the convention to pick up my weekend priority wristband, but as well as myself, there were several other people who were held up by security and we had to wait.
But by the time we were let out, the people who scanned the tickets had packed up and gone home; I didn’t really mind (though it was a pain in the backside), two kids along with their dad were upset about it (no word of lie, one of the kids said “we came down here for nothing.”) that really broke my heart. L
So I travelled back to my hotel room, grabbed some snacks and my dinner (Burger King) and watched some YouTube videos until the early hours.
Saturday 27th October
Got up at 7:40am, got washed and ready to attend the convention in my brand new cosplay (I was Bartholomew Kuma from One Piece) I walked around for a bit, and then one person saw me in my cosplay and recognised who I was in my outfit (I even took off my glove and showed the pawpad on my palm)
He laughed and said that I even got the pawpad and I hi-fived him.
I carried on walking around and I got a few people at some comic stalls who knew (some knew I was from One Piece, but didn’t know of the character) who liked my cosplay.
I then met up with the folks from the UK One Piece FaceBook group outside-which was flippin’ freezing, we were then beckoned over by a guy with a Viking horn (I think it was originally a cup, but it was better used as a horn)
So the One Piece group and various other cosplayers from different franchises came together for a group photo, we even spotted a kid Luffy, we were calling to him, asking if we’d like to join in(of course, he was with his folks-his dad gave consent) and as he ran towards us, everyone clapped and cheered.
Afterwards, many others came in to join in the group photo and we were able to get the photo.
Soon, we then dispersed to our own groups and I was complimented by a cosplayer who was dressed as Lucas from EarthBound complimented my Kuma cosplay.
We then had the photoshoot (which then moved inside due to the cold weather) and…let’s just say that there was many laughs and jokes.
After the shoot, we parted ways; I walked around a bit more then made my way back to my hotel room, grabbed my dinner and fell asleep.
Today Sunday 28th October
Got up a little early today to get ready and leave my hotel room and make my way to the convention (by this time, It was pissing down with rain).
Made my way to the event and got my wristband (but not before some complications, which was then resolved) I then put my large suitcase into storage for a while and walked around for a bit.
I stopped at a few tables to talk to a few artists, one of which was the artists who produces the realistic Pokémon pieces on Twitter (he’s a very sweet guy) I looked through his portfolio and was pointing out pieces of art that I liked, I even cracked a joke with him (long story: how artists tried to come up with the evolution of Voltorb, I told him that I bet all they did was turn the picture upside down, drew eyes and a smile and there were done).
I then moved on and walked around some more, bought some more stuff and met up with the members of the One Piece FaceBook group and had another photoshoot.
Afterwards, I then made my way to the storage room, grabbed my suitcase and made my way home: BUT! Because my usual route home was part closed due to engineering work I had to take an alternate route- normally I would have been cheesed off about this because what should have been an half an hour trip home took an hour or so…but as I was about to walked through the barriers in –censored- I heard a somewhat familiar voice, when I turned, I was met face to face with my crush (my knees were shaking like jelly, but I managed to keep it together)
He actually spotted me, he came out of his booth and grabbed me into a huge bear hug and OMG!! He’s even cuter in real life
We talked for a bit, he asked how the family was among other things-he even said that it’s been so hard to try and meet (we’ve been trying to meet up for a while, but because of our jobs its been pretty hard to do this, but he’s promised that we’ll meet up)
We then parted ways, he gave me another bear hug and I caught the bus home (oh boy, he’s going to be in my dreams tonight)
Well, it’s time for me to hit the hay: I’ve got work in the morning ==; (i'll post the photos when i get home from work)
Bye for now!!

love this anime
Been a cosplayer since 2007/08
<< LOVE this show
<< COMING THIS WEEKEND!!
: <--- Please don't give me any llamas! They're a waste of time ! If you do decide on giving me one...let me just say...you won't get one back!
This lovely lady is such a sweetheart <33
Despite various things that get her down, she always tries to have a positive attitude on life
I've know this lovely lass since she was in Team Purity all those years ago.
Though I've not had a chance to comment on her more recent pieces of artworks lately due to work and such, there's never been a dull moment where I've seen her artwork pop up in my notifications and it has always made me smile (regardless of what's going on in my life).
I've always loved how she'd interpret my characters from Key to My Heart in her style (whether it be commission/trade or gift)
