Sometimes I look at the little self-avatar character I’ve used to represent me and wonder how it ended up looking nothing like I do.

Then I remembered the first time I tried to draw a representation of myself in 6th grade and it was essentially an attempt to draw Trowa Barton from GWing and had Garfield eyes.

I envy you people who can do DIY, especially for cosplay. I can’t even do origami to save my life.

I got automaticgiraffe's intuos to finally work on my computer.

All it took was drivers from 2011 and a blood sacrifice.

Trying that tablet again. Got this error message. Ideas?

Bittersweet Artist Alley

There’s gonna be a weird air about Fanime AA this year… with First Come First Serve it was that your schedule, internet, or fingers weren’t fast enough to get you in, but now that they added a judging component, people are going to be walking around and thinking to themselves “I’m better than this person… How did they get in.” And to some degree, they’ll probably be right. It seems some con regulars, and others who I know for fact are awesome, didn’t get in when others did.

A lot of hurt feelings and bruised egos. The question I have now though, as do most people who didn’t get in, is what those mysterious criteria were…

Not sure how I’m still awake post Kraken.

But they did give us snack boxes.

Fanime never gave me a snack box.

God, Nisekoi is a pretty anime. For all the post-production work Shaft does for BD releases, they really are, along with Trigger (Since it’s most of the people who made everything Gainax has won acclaim for the past decade), the ones pushing unique art and coloring in anime these days. Entire episodes of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei were dedicated to style tests, Bakemonogatari is nothing but interesting camera angles and lighting, but Nisekoi is just top notch.

The map for Krakencon2014 is up!
I’ll be tabling at #32, alongside my good buddy automaticgiraffe at #31.
As per usual, here are my lists of good friends you should visit:
#06, the dynamic duo of rescoesto and taxikun
#39 & #40, our longtime AA friends ekllips and sukyan
#44, complexwish, who I totally remembered to include this time!
#13, redgoldsparks who I met at AOD this year
And of course, feel free to chat me up—I love meeting new people!
See you April 6th!

So close! I will probably be cosplaying as Unwound Future Layton, so be on the lookout for a well-dressed chap in a lot of red.
Oakland Convention Center! 9-6! $15 admission! This Sunday!

If you give me enough time, I come up with interesting solutions to interesting problems.
The brim is arguably the most complex part of the Descole hat, adn the one that has the most variance in interpretation. This is partially due to the fact that it’s hard as fuck to construct, and also the fact that the official turnaround art isn’t consistent. If that doesn’t make it hard enough to get right in itself…
I kept thinking in terms of wire and sheets of woven plastic like in the Layton hat tutorial, and then I started thinking about something chowowpow had told me about a hat she had made. She used cardboard to construct the brim, but she used cereal box cardboard, which is very thin, but sturdy and bendable.
From that, I came up with a 5 piece design that allows me to construct the brim (with tape/staples) and then theoretically attach it to a base hat (Which will supply the crown). By cutting a curve into the bottoms of the pieces, I could also make the brim tilt in more towards the cone-like crown. We could probably lay the pieces out and cut a pattern to sew over them before attaching to the base hat.
The only part of this I haven’t quite figured out though is how to curve where the brim meets the base hat so that it looks like a bowl and not  some sort of Burger King crown.
Any thoughts/suggestions would be valued. Maybe the trick lies in a sombrero-like base? The cardboard is thin enough that it wouldn’t jut far from what we attach it to, so it mixes well with anything.

for my buddy linkakami 
I’m really terrible when it comes to any kind of group games (i.e. I forget what avatar I am)… it’s probably better having the computer play haha they’d probably be 500x more helpful

I was talking to my friend Feyuca when I realized her self-avatar would look perfect in a WW style tunic, and so she doodled this of us!
