The Con went well. It was great to just simply try it out. I'm thankful it was in its first year so I didn't have to be so worried that it wouldn't all work out. I'm sure everyone else there was a bit nervous too. There were a lot of neat artists there.
I did pretty well for sales, surprisingly. I have always been rather worried about my work but that helped me see that people actually like my work. Whoa.
I met a lot of different people, got commissions, and saw friends and family. It was really neat to see Wichita's con scene coming together. I'm used to the anime scene here (I attended its first anime convention years ago) so it's great
I was accepted to my first con - ICT Comic Con!
So now I really have to get my butt in gear to create pieces for the AA.
It's been motivating, to say the least, and stressful haha but I think it'll be fun, especially since this con is in its first year. I'm looking forward to participating.
The only big cons I've attended have been Denver Comic Con, which had a crazy big AA, compared to even NanDesuKan. So who knows how this will be. I hope it'll continue to grow in the coming years and the AA and Con will be a success. =)
I fixed my computer so there's no more lag when I draw!
Because I have a Mac, the latest OS (Yosemite) caused Photoshop and Manga Studio to lag horribly. I updated MS and my tablet drivers and also changed my brush sensitivity on MS. I'm not sure which finally fixed it but I'm thankfully I had time to troubleshoot and finally solve the mystery.
Since I've been gone:
• I've been working on traditionally painting and now I can work more on digital.
• I may be able to attend a con next month. It'll be a first for me if it happens. =)
• Pokemon Go
I hope you all have been well. I still log on when I can and check messages
It's almost been a year since my last update and because my son is almost a year old I finally have time to get back into creating and studying art.
I'm currently teaching a portrait drawing class locally and working on various small design projects. It feels great to get back into drawing!
Hopefully soon I'll be able to complete a few paintings - once I figure out how to fix my tablet. Since the latest OSX Yosemite update my Wacom Intuos4 tablet has been lagging. It's frustrating, to say the least.
I've reset my preferences and re-installed the driver, to no avail. If anyone knows of another method that works, I'd be grateful.
In the nex
I’m sorry for the long pause here. I’ve been busy this last year with moving back home, finding a house, and a job, while also finding out that we’re expecting. Since this is our first child it’s been pretty exciting for my husband and I.
I’m due in April and I was finally able to sign up for a drawing class here locally. Since everything has finally settled down into a nice routine, I’ll have time to get back into that and hopefully I’ll be able to finish the course before he comes. =)
