First off- AWESOME TIME! Had a lot of fun at Nekocon this year. There were many disappointments. The main ones being so many of my friends being unable to make it this year (including Shiden and even my own Brother T_T) and - NEKOCON HAD NO T-SHIRT THIS YEAR! WTH!? Kate gave me money and said "Now be a good boy and buy me some cool Nekocon T-shirts!" and I had to send her with a message saying "Hun, they. . . they don't have any t-shirts this year..." 13 freakn years and the 13th year they decide to NOT have a t-shirt!? WTH!? I was disappointed, Kate was disappointed, I bet Jesus was disappointed too, probably why I didn't see him there this year.
Point is- WTH!? NO T-SHIRT!? SHAAAAME!!!!
Ahem - Ok. Onto the good!
Artist Alley! It was awesome. Here's the story from the beginning...
It's late Thursday night, I need to sleep but I don't go to bed early and thus have trouble doing so... I get a message from a friend and fan by the name of Kullax. He says "Have fun at Nekocon! Oh and tell Kittyhawk of Sparkling Generation Valkryie Yuuki ( www.sgvy.com )that I said hi!", confused by the somewhat familiar name I agree to do so before saying goodnight...
The morning after, my friend Tom and I head off with loaded car and Mountain Dew. We arrive shortly before the AA opens to the public! We get to work assembling the wireboxes of displayness only to see the people next to us, already set up and awaiting the fans and customers, are from Sparkling Generation Valkryie Yuuki! I explain to Tom the message from last night and he said "How did he know we would be sitting next to them?" and i said "Obviously he didn't! We didnt even know we would be sitting here- unless he's... MAGIC!" - no we didnt do that but it was something like that.
So yeah- I told Mrs Kittyhawk that Kullax said hello (Butchering the pronunciation of his name in the process! It's ok - I spelled it out flawlessly!). From there during slow times we chatted a lot with her and her husband. They were awesome and after looking at their art it kinda came back to me- I used to read there comic back in 2004. During one of my many computer wipes I had lost my giant list of webcomics and I assume they were one of the casualties because the comic is hilarious and very cool. We traded prints and items and such. So yeah, huge fan of them! I hope they come again next year and we can be Table Neighbors again!
Things did sell better this year than the past couple of years and I talked with lots of other cool people. I gave Danny (From Draconia Chronicles [link]
)a bunch of prints of the Year of the Tiger Collaboration image to sign XD - I'll be sending those out pretty soon in the mail (along with the winners prints from the raffle - I wasnt able to get them out before I left).
The guys from Darkstar Studios dropped by my table to see how I was doing- which was awesome, people used to do that way back, I still do it, but it seemed far less common the past years. To have them both drop by separately (since someones gotta watch the table eh? XD) to see how things were going was very cool. Ryan and Mike were very cool, and well... GO TEAM EDWARD!
Lets seeee- I didn't talk to Dave Lister much but his little girl was adorable. I wonder if he cut his hair because she kept pulling on it? Sounds like a sound theory...
I wanted to talk more with the Drow Tales group but every time I made my way over there it was just one of them and I tell ya, last thing i wanna do is mention how much I love the coloring only for the colorist to not be there and make him feel under appreciated ^_^;
Oh and huge thanks to Nekonny aka Ron aka
for the filler for Monday- fantastic picture- check it out on his DA here -
Also btw, Kimi isn't bigger than Kate- they are roughly the same size
- Kate's laying down so take gravity into account. XD
(*Only doing Full Color Commissions for now*)
Full Color Single Character - 30 Dollars
+ 10 dollars for a second Character
All commissions are subject to approval by myself. I will be more likely now to actually turn down a commission if it's something I cannot find interest in drawing. Certain things I guess people may consider fetishes have been an issue before and while I may not appose them I may not feel able to properly draw it or be able to maintain interest in drawing it. And a lack of interest often slows everything down.
I'm not going to create a list of things I won't draw because honestly there's so much stuff out there if people ask for it and I have to google it and send them a quick NO and add something else to my list- it will probably become a very big list. Other times I might feel comfortable drawing one strange thing in a particular way but the same thing done another way might be a no. Also if you look around my DA for something to fit what you want and cant find it, that doesn't mean I wont do it. I don't put all my commissions and such on my DA and some things I just haven't tried. So just because I don't have it on DA doesn't mean I wont do it.
And finally, I do not do porn. Sexy Pin-ups and the like are fine. I enjoy drawing them and it's a huge help in anatomy study and I'll get pretty close but nothing pornographic.
