So here is a sneak peek of some fan art that I want to show at Blue Jay Con. Hope you enjoy!
So, I keep forgetting that I need to update my blog posts!!!! Anyway, I went to my very first Artist/Illustrators Convention, QV Con, at the Queens Village Public Library hosted by Hairy Lion Comics. It was very eye opening for me and I think gave me the little push that I needed to not be afraid to put my art out there. Although very small, I did manage to sell a few things so that was a big confidence boost! I now feel like I have a little bit of practice on how to talk to people about myself and my art. This also showed me that there are people who like my stuff enough to buy it (instead of just myself and family!). So yea, I’ll be attending another on this Wednesday, September 6th from 2-5pm at the Rego Park Public Library if any of you read this and feel like stopping by!
It’s hard for me to find time to draw let alone finish all my sketches, but I finally finished this Illustration I started awhile back. I’m trying to get back into it and force myself to find time like I had before. I won’t get anywhere if I don’t sit down and practice, practice PRACTICE (especially with shadows and lighting)! Anyway, enjoy!
I made these illustrations a while back during a Style Challenge. Pretty simple, pick some of your favorite cartoons or artists and try to imitate their style using your own character. I actually really enjoyed it and will probably make another one. A good exercise for me because at times I feel like I don’t have enough time to draw. Gotta change that!
I should have started this long ago, but I figure it is never too late! I’ll start it off by showing an illustration that my son and I drew. It is of a character named SpringTrap from one of his favorite games Five Nights at Freddys or FNAF. Enjoy!
