✿ Personal Profile ✿

Greetings! I'm Malachyte (or Mal, Mala, Kite, w/e else). I'm a red panda, am gender fluid (he/she/it/they), and a full-time artist in the fandom. I'm usually ridiculously busy, but I try to get to know my watchers and comment back as often as possible. Some of the things I like to do when I'm not drawing a million things are reading fantasy novels, playing video games, knitting, and watching Let's Plays. My favourite things to space out and think about are flan, libraries, Game Grumps, and recipe ideas.

I'd like to think I'm pretty chill in general, so if you find yourself wanting to note me to talk or say hi or ask questions, but are nervous, please don't be! Also, I really like getting critique on my art, even if I don't specifically mark it as "critique wanted", so totally go for it if you want to. Just remember to be constructive, not rude. Alternately, I enjoy sharing what I know about art with others; if you've got questions or wish you could get something red-lined, hit me up!

Anthrocon Meme, 'cuz I'll be there!

on 22 June 2017 at 11:15:31 MDT

Just a side note that I'm not doing stream commissions today, nor next Thursday, since I'm going to Too Many Games con and then Anthrocon.

Where are you staying?
Westin (aka, the main hotel)

What day are you getting there?
Wednesday evening

How are you traveling?
Carpooling with Ettie and Mechsae

Who will you be rooming with?
Ettie, Robi, and Fritz

How is the best way to find you?
I'll be in the Artist Alley Friday through Sunday!
Fri: 12pm - 5pm Table 72
Sat: 10am - 5pm Table TBA
Sun: 10am - 3pm Table TBA

If I'm not there, I'll either be in the Zoo doodling and socializing, or in my hotel room winding down. This is going to be a very work intensive con for me.

Are there any panels you might be attending?
No time, only arts.

What do you look like?
5'11", short red hair, glasses, and a black messenger bag full of art supplies.

Will you be suiting?
Not this time. I really want to fix up my rabbit partial so he's easier to wear and actually looks nice.

Do you do free art?
Maybe! If you catch me while I'm in the zoo and I don't have commissions I need to do, I may be able to do a simple doodle for you ^^

Do you do trades?
Same thing as above.

What is your gender?
Genderfluid, so he/she/they are all fine. I finally have a pronoun badge to wear around the con, so I hope that helps!

Can I talk to you?
Yeh boi. I may not talk as much if I'm at the artist alley table, since I need to work, but I'm up for a short chat!

Can I touch you?
I love hugs! But nothing more, and please don't pick me up while hugging me. This happens more than you'd think, somehow.

How can I find you?
Artist Alley, Zoo, or in my room. I'll be updating my Twitter with my location as best as I can, but feel free to DM me or hit me up on Telegram if you want to ask me directly.

Can I buy you drinks?
I always appreciate a nice coffee or tea! Closed container only, unless I specify otherwise (just to be safe!)

Can I give you stuff?
Gifts are pretty rad! Just be chill about it and remember that giving an unexpected gift doesn't equal free art.

Can I hug or snuggle with you?
Hugs are lovely, especially fursuit hugs. Snuggles are for closer friends only.

Are you nice?
I do my best! I certainly hope so.

Will you be going to parties?
Nah, I don't party much these days.

If I see you, how should I get your attention?
Just yell out Mal, Malachyte, panda, w/e

Can I come with you for food/fun/etc?
Nah, I like small food groups with close friends. They're easier to organize. Plus I'm mostly eating food I brought.

Can I look in your sketchbook?
Probably! Just ask first, and please please please have clean hands. No food or drink near it!

Can I draw in your sketchbook?
Heck yes! I love doodles in it, whether it's my characters, your own, or just a drawing of some cartoon poop. All drawings are best drawings.

Can I take your picture?
Maybe, depends.

Do you do commissions?
I will be taking as many commissions as I can physically handle.

What's your goal(s) for the con this year?
Prove to myself I can draw like the wind when it counts, make people happy with some awesome art, say hi to lots of friends and meet some new ones, and hopefully sell some art in the art show.

    Hiya! I've been trying to find that sketch of a red panda in shorts you showed me at AC. Is it in any of your galleries?

    • Link

      Red panda in shorts... I think I need more details, I've drawn a number of sketches that fit the bill.

      • Link

        I think it was a sitting/reclining pose, in squarecut boyshorts or something similar... The one that inspired the sketchpage you made for me at AC. :3

          Oh yeah! I poked around in my galleries on multiple sites, and I swear I remember uploading it, but I can't seem to find it. I'll have to scan that in and post it!
