boys boys boys and otakon!

updating with some scans from my sketchbook :D

this one is a watercolour study from a magazine

and this one is a memory drawing of a guy i saw at royal winter fair, and recognized him when i saw him again for a second time on the subway :D
and i just got back from otakon like two days ago
i must say its my fav con so far this yr in terms of selling art
the ppl were a lot nicer, the artist alley was nicely organized i thought
and the costumes were cooler and funnier haha
and longer hours open at the convention
10-14hrs!! but its all good haha
it didnt even feel as tiring as AX even tho the hours were shorter there :o
and baltimore is such a nice place :) cant wait to go again~
anyways i didnt get to do many commissions at this con but here are the ones that i did :)



this is lisa and i :)
another piece i did for fun
but near the end of the convention, a man purchased it from me :o
sorry lisa! >_<



this one was the first one i did, for fun haha
but i ended up selling it and someone else asked me to redraw the exact same one
so i ended up selling two of these haha XD



a commission of aang and appa :D this was very fun and enjoyable to draw haha
<3 avatar!



this was a commission by a very cute couple :D they wore matching headphones and necklaces! (necklace isnt on the picture cuz i added it after) but it was the vivien westwood necklace~ so cute...and the guy on the left always carries that cute panda bag
the guy on the right seemed to have really like the outcome of the commission :) so it made me really happy~ yay!



and here was my last commission, fanart chibis from naruto (kakashi and iruka) hehe

yup and thats all! rawrrr

sketch dump

in order of being done, oldest to newest:


got my new sketchbook not long ago, had this random thought on the go train of a kid marching lol :)
at go for tea, ken and a random nobody girl ~


on my way to work, i saw this girl sitting by a tree, and everything looked like it was leaning in one direction lol, just found it amusing. the image stayed in my head and i farted it out a week or two after at destinys, drinking more bbt...lol :p


attended for my very first time, bobby chiu's subway sketch
was quite fun :) hoping to go do some more of that
anyways, didnt get much that day but i kind of liked this one~
not sure if the man knew if i was drawing him or not (tho he probably did)
i caught him smiling every once in a while...(to himself?) lol
he was a good model :) stayed fairly still!
