Mood: blbugh but okay
Heyo! I've probably mentioned here and there that I have a weebly page for my characters and stories. It's not as extensive in terms of information as my Various Planning world, but it's much more organized! I just recently updated it a little more, so I thought I'd make an official (?) post linking to it.
YEP, there's that. There's still a couple of holes that I need to fill in terms of character profiles and stuff, but for the most part this should act as a good summary of my OCs and stories. So if you're every curious or confused about them, go and check that out! :^D
Idk what else to say. This is irrelevant, but I'M GOING TO GRADUATE SOON!!! THAT'S.... CRAZY WEIRD IMO...... I just finished my last day of classes yesterday whaughghgh;;; AFTER FINALS I'M DONE WITH MY UNDERGRAD DEGREE! *______*;;;;;;;;;
WOO HOO it's Secret Santa time!!! Toyotami kun and Kaerlyn are hosting the 2016 Fan Art Secret Santa and YOU SHOULD GO JOIN!! It'll be lots o' fun. :^D
Anyway, here's my wishlist for my secret santa. The rest of this post will be directed to my Santa~ :^D
Most of my requests will be pairs, but if you'd rather do a drawing of a single person that's fine too!! ;o
1. Original Characters
Okay, so my OCs are like... my favorite.... I'd be super happy if you drew them! *u*/ Here's who my favorites are:
- Stefan and Gabe (you can see how they interact here)
- Lafayette and Dmitri (not romantic, but they're really close. You can see how they interact here)
- Lafayette and Dmitri, 1920's version (The links are different than the previous ones. More about them here)
- Noland and Prue (technically not dating, but idk they hold hands and stuff)
You can draw my characters in whatever outfits you want! :^Y You can even design your own outfit for them if you want to. It's all cool yo. And if none of those characters appeal to you, you can always look through my sloppy weebly page for something that might interest you.
2. Mob Psycho 100
I RECENTLY GOT INTO MOB PSYCHO 100!!! I really like it!! I feel like I haven't been this into an anime in a while.*-* Here's my favorite characters and pairs:
- Mob and Reigen (Not romantic, more like a student/teacher or father/son relationship)
- Ekurei (Dimple/Ekubo and Reigen) (I can't find any good refs, but Dimple's "security guard" version (on the far right here) is more ~aesthetically appealing~ if you wanna go for that. tbh I think his blob self is fun too tho hahaha.)
- Terumob (Mob and Teruki)
3. Ping Pong: The Animation
Ping Pongggg is a gr8 anime. B) SO UH, refs for this one are going to be in a pretty atypical artstyle (even compared to MP100)...... but I love this anime so much it's really good. ;-;7 My favorite characters are:
- Peco (idk why his profile is so short, he's the other main character.....)
If you want to draw them both together that'd be GREAT! But either of them individually is awesome too.
4. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun
I think all the characters in this anime are cute, but here's my favorites!
5. Super Smash Bros
Roy (Melee outfit / SSB4 Outfit)
Marth (Brawl outfit / SSB4 Outfit)
Lastly, my old SSB favs are always an option. ;u;/
You can draw them individually or together! You can also make up outfits for them too if you don't wanna draw their armor and stuff, haha.
ANYWAY, that's what I've got... Hope you find something you want to draw! ;0;/ Thanks so much and have a happy holiday!!
Mood: KINDA TIRED, but pretty decent B)
HEY, I'm back from my second anime convention artist alley boothing experience...!!! :^D I boothed with harvestmoonluvr and keyblademewkasa from here on theOtaku! Here's a pic of us on the first day.
YEAH. This was my first time meeting harvestmoonluvr, actually. *-* A KOOL FRIEND.
I think this one went a little bit better than my first convention, but I still have things I know I need to improve on... The good news is I was actually able to MAKE BANK on this con YEAHHHHHH. a little bank. I was able to pay off the cost of the table and the new merch and still have a little left over. B);;; SO!!! TECHNICALLY BETTER THAN MY FIRST CON EXPERIENCE, I THINK.
I definitely sold more merch at this con than I did at my first convention. I still didn't sell many prints, but I at least sold some! I sold a couple of the Homura and Madoka print and Gon and Killua print, and one person even bought the Marth and Roy print. *U*/ And I think one person bought the Junkrat print. Surprisingly, no one bought any Pokemon Go prints. I WAS TOO LATE ON THE POPULARITY CURVE, I THINK........ Pokemon Go definitely dropped in popularity recently. Hopefully I'll be able to sell them eventually online or something;; I'm trying to work on setting up my online store. ;u;7
As far as the other merch goes, the overwatch charms sold pretty well! :o Idk if I ever posted them here, so here's a pic:
I think I sold at least one of each charm, so HOORAY. I sold like none of my old FE charms, though. Or like any FE stuff in general... ALAS! I think the only Fire Emblem things I sold were a Lucina charm, a Brady sticker, and an Owain sticker. AGAIN... I AM L8 TO THE POPULARITY PARTEE...
BUT YEAH, the small stuff was able to sell better... especially Junkrat...!! I only have a couple of Junkrat charms left, and I even sold out of Junkrat stickers. :O Granted I only bought 5 of each of the new stickers, but............. B)
I also ran out of the business cards that I brought to the con, which is super surprising to me. :0 WHICH MEANS I REALLY SHOULD SET UP AN ONLINE STORE SO PEOPLE CAN FIND MY STUFF AFTER THE CON HAHA;;;
There were times it was still kinda slow tho, haha;; ;u;7 idk I wish I had a way to make the table look more interesting or to just know more about what people are interested in buying;;; BUT! whatever.
I think I'm gonna try to booth at Animore again in 2017 in January, but I'm not really planning on buying new merch for the con. WE'LL SEE...!! But I'll definitely be setting up my store soon, and I'll open up commissions again once I finish school. YEAH, MONEY AND RESPONSIBILITIES!
Anyway hope y'all have a good day. :^Y Thanks for reading!
Does anyone here listen to English vocaloids??? ;o;/ I want to find more songs, but I don't know what to listen to or where to find more music... I'm not really into the genre of music that crusher-P/VocaCircus makes, but they're like the biggest English vocaloid producer, so idk I'm kind of at a loss. orz If you have any English vocaloid or vocaloid songs in general that you recommend, please send them my way! *U*/ Avanna and Fukase are probs my favorite English vocals.
I really want to make a long post on English vocaloid at some point. >:U It was something I thought about a lot last year because I did a Japanese project on Vocaloid. IDK WHO'D EVEN BE INTERESTED, but expect that sometime, hahaha. -u-/
Mood: Pretty chill
EVEN THOUGH CHARMS IS IN CAPS IN THE TITLE, I haven't actually ordered charms yet... This post is just going to be me rambling about my plans to order. (?? POINTLESS! I just want to post more here, haha.)
Anyway, I found this new place to order charms from that I'm really excited about!!! It's called Acorn Press, and they let you order more charm designs for less charms total, and their rates are also cheaper than Chilly Pig Studio (which is what I used before). I'm excited about them because my previous charms were on white acrylic and only 1.5" tall... but since the pricing is more convenient for Acorn Press, I'm gonna go and order some 2" clear acrylic charms for Anime USA. *U*/ I personally like bigger charms more (and clear acrylic ones), so idk. I'm excited to order them... And since they're bigger, I'm gonna keep the shading on them this time instead of having the charms unshaded (versus the shaded stickers).
Originally, the new charms I was going to order were going to be the Fire Emblem set, but I'm going to try to profit off of Overwatch since that's so big right now. -u-b Acorn Press lets me choose 5 designs for 50 charms, so the ones I'm going to be ordering are Tracer, D.Va, Soldier 76, Junkrat, and Lucio. I'm not really sure who's popular, but I'm pretty sure Tracer, D.VA, and Soldier 76 are 3 of the more popular ones right now.....??? The Junkrat and Lucio stickers I posted got the most notes on tumblr out of all the individual stickers though, so I thought I'd have them be the last two charms. (That might just be some weird tumblr popularity slant idk.)
IN TERMS OF CONCERN FOR THESE CHARMS, I'm not really sure where I want to buy the straps from... last time I kinda just got them off ebay or something, but the quality wasn't fantastic. I'm gonna try to BE BRAVE and ask around on tumblr. -0-/;;;; (IF ANYONE HERE KNOWS... THAT'D BE GREAT TOO...!!!)
But yeah, that's charms. I really wanna order them soon... maybe this weekend, idk. As far as other stuff goes, I had my first week of classes (I don't have class on Fridays) and they seem pretty decent. I decided to take my art class pass-fail because I don't want to stress to hard about it. @o@)9 Luckily I don't have any textbooks to buy this year...!! I have to buy art supplies though.
I'm kinda stressed about jobs though.... I went to a resume lecture the other day and I have like nothing for my resume 'cause I've never had a job and don't belong to any clubs. S W E E T. Jobs. I'm probably going to try for JET or some other teach-English-in-Japan program for a couple years just so I can get better at Japanese and better understand Japanese culture. BUT! I DON'T WANT TO GO BY MYSELF!!! I'M A BABY AND SCARED! I also hate traveling ughgughglsdkfja. And Japanese apartments don't typically have central heating, I think. I'M A PAMPERED FOOL!!!! Idk what's going on.
BUT UH, now's not the time to talk about that. JUST GOTTA FOCUS ON AUSA AND SCHOOL FOR THE TIME BEING... *U*)7 Anyway thanks for reading this blob of nothing.
BY THE WAY, I wanna post more blabby posts about my characters to my various planning world... I don't really expect any of you to really keep track of my characters, but if any of you have any questions about my characters or want to know more about a specific character FEEL FREE TO LET ME KNOW....!!! I'LL BE REALLY HAPPY AHAHA. I love talking about my characters and I always wanna blab about them... sorry if it's ever annoying that I only ever post OC stuff, hahaha. xD;
