I’m truly surprised but I was able to get a booth at the Phoenix Comicon after all. This is crazy! I will have a booth at both Long Beach AND Phoenix. I’m very excited as this is a great opportunity to advertise my blog, art, and videos.
Woot! Woot! My new video about contour mapping is uploaded to my YouTube channel. I’m going to start with more mainstream videos this weekend but in the meantime, I have some really cool videos about techniques people can use to help with their drawing (versus the old “this is how you make a…”).
Since I will be showing at the Long Beach Comic Expo, I need to create more art! This is what I have for Cat Woman so far. I purchased a book with all the DC Universe characters. I’m not as familiar with that universe as I am with Marvel so it has been fun researching the characters. I love the pose on this character. I’m not sure if I’m going to add Selina Kyle’s whip or not.
I’m new to making videos on how to draw. So far, I realize I need to move my camera angle. I’m right-handed and placed the camera on the right – WRONG! It’s difficult to see what I am demonstrating. I suppose as I make more videos I will get it down by trial and error.
Well, after a lot of waiting and serious disappointment, I won’t be getting a booth at Phoenix Comicon. At first I was upset, especially since I had been trying to get a booth two months before they were actually sold out! The system in place for reserving a booth is confusing and convoluted. Now, I’m thinking everything happens for a reason. For me, its branching out into other markets besides my home state of Arizona. Long Beach opens up Vanquish Studio to the great state of California and more opportunities. Plus, I get an awesome mini vacation away from Phoenix.
Well, it doesn’t look good. I don’t think I’ll be able to get a booth at this year’s Phoenix Comicon so I need to look into other comic book conventions to push my art. I find out tomorrow if I get a booth or not. I’m thinking NOT!
I didn’t know this but WordPress.com and WordPress.org are two completely different things. I noticed I had some international hits on my blog so I wanted to upload Babelfish. NO CAN DO when you have a blog on the dot com site (which I do). WordPress.com doesn’t allow for plug ins. That kinda sucks because I don’t speak 35 different languages. Hmmm, gonna have to think about that one. As for more pics, I checked out a book from the library to familiarize myself with the DC Universe. So far its coming along well so stay tuned!
