2018, California and Further Confusion

on 1 January 2018 at 16:28:01 MST

First of all, Happy new year to everyone!!

I really hope you have a great 2018, I'm sure this year will be awesome!! All my best wishes to all of you X3

My first plan for this 2018 is going to California for very first time, I already have many plans with lot of friends around that state, I'll only visit San Diego, San Jose and San Francisco, I would have loved to plan a visit to LA but it will be in another time, to visit a certain raccoon who has to take me to Disneyland >w> One day!!

After my vacation trip, I'll attend Further Confusion, it will be also my first time at that convention. So if you are planing to attend that first con of the year, surely we'll see you there :D

I didn't apply for the art show, only to the artists alley, I'll have a table only on Saturday, 13th.

I'll take 4 commissions during the con (sketches with color pencils), and when I fill them all, I'll take commissions to take home, digital or traditional. This is one of the few oportunities to get a commission from me (because I'll remain closed for the upcoming months for regular commissions, I'm really sorry, this panda is really busy u__u).

But here are some advices I want to give you if you are planning to get a commission from me at FC:

►Commissions during the con (the 4 slots) will be very simple (not even background), but it will look awesome, extra characters this time will be charged a little more.
►Be thinking about a good idea that I can work for you, if you don't have one, you can leave it up to me n__n I don't have problem suggesting poses.
►Have prepared your reference sheet (any reference of your character works for me, no matter if is not properly a ref sheet), PREFERABLY PRINTED!! If you can't print it, you can have it ready saved on your phone and I'll take a picture to your screen. Do not trust the internet of the convention center, so don't try to find your reference on FA at the moment. That almost never works.
►If you want me to draw you on your own sketchbook, try to be one of the firsts to get to me, early times the artists alley is opened. (Last time at MFF my queue of 5 was filled in 20 minutes, and this time I'm only taking 4, so really,...be quick!)
►I'll strictly work at the con only for 4 slots, don't make me work during the convention out of time the artists alley T_T So if you are not one of the 4 first slots, I'll take your commission home and mail it to you later (in case it is traditional)

I'll give all this info in real time on my Telegram channel
I almost never check internet during my trips, rarely I use twitter only to update something about the convention. But an easier way to be updating constantly and also it is really easy you can be checking is Telegram. I have a Telegram Channel where you can follow my path, and I'll be updating with news, emergency announcements, spontaneous changes, updates about the artists alley queue, sometimes pictures, and so.

    You do really good furry faces. And your style is very classically western and cartoony. It looks like you're really experienced in this field, so forgive me for asking, but I'd love some drawing advice. Even though I rarely do actual furry art. I figure, I'm on Weasyl, I might as well learn from these guys. When in Rome and all that. So yeah, for like, a conventional anthro fur-bearing mammal, where do you usually start? And what do I need to know?

      Hi !! Thank you very much for your words n__n
      Where I start for a mammal in general, well, I'm very used to start from the head, except when I know on the drawing the pose is the most important, so I start from there, so it depends a lot of each drawing. What do you need to know? To know how to draw real animals so that way you can easily abstract forms and shapes to create new characters, and of course, to know how to abstract geometric figures and make them feel alive.

        Yeah, thanks for taking your time out to help me. I mean I sort of get it, but every time I try to draw something really cute that's furry, I end up with creepy and uncanny. Maybe I'll go for less exaggerated features in the future and slowly work my way back to cartoon looks.
