I am very conflicted about Sector Eridanus.
On one hand, it has great design, beautiful music, interesting demons to get, and introduces new plot points
On the other hand
FUCK THIS PLACE
I’m back from it now! I had a really nice time there, I’m not going to go into huge detail right now cause I’m very tired but yes, it was lovely. I like small cons like that, they’re fun and relaxing and I had so much more time and less stress compared to something like expo. It’s always nice to be able to hang out with people and draw/talk about fictional things and so on… and of course, be a part of sweatdrop studios. I’m really glad to be a part of them instead of just publishing/selling comics by myself.
I resolved not to buy anything because I don’t have a lot of money right now but UNFORTUNATELY I found the second tiger & bunny original drawings artbook and I just had to get it… I’m soooo glad I did because it’s really really beautiful and made me so happy and inspired. It’s fantastic. I also got some sweets AND in the bring & buy I got the first two of volumes of Demon Diary for £1 each… I was really into that series many years ago but I FOOLISHLY sold my copies of it when I was clearing out my enormous manga collection. I really want to collect it again now so it was a great find, very nostalgic and pleasingly indulgent to read it again. also in the bring & buy, I found a legolas/aragorn doujinshi drawn in an extremely shoujo style and it was amazing. I did not expect to find that there.
the masquerade was really cool to watch and there were some skits that really made me laugh (time travel…), others that weren’t so great… overall pretty enjoyable though. the portfolio/drawing session that we ran was really nice too, I was afraid no one would turn up but there was a small but fun group of people who did and we had a nice time! I hope those who came got something out of it too. I really enjoyed meeting people and drawing and talking about things.
I didn’t do that much else apart from sit behind the table other than attend the cel painting workshop thingy which was very fun! we also watched the screening of wolf children on friday night. it’s a good film and unsurprisingly, everyone in the room was sniffling by the end of it. heh.
I’d like to go again next year if I can because it’s a nice environment to relax and have fun in. as usual when I go to a con, I now want to watch a lot of anime and make cosplays and draw stuff but sadly I have to eat, sleep and do uni work… hopefully I can fit some of that stuff in though!
Final Fantasy XIV Happened.
Sorry to everyone following my tumblr that not much art has happened despite this being my art account!
Basically, the following happened:
YES YES <3
This post made me happyyy (though unfortunately I agree with all the negative points too auhhh), I’m going to post lots of screenshots of Fafani and Ayin’a and other fun things when I get back from Minamicon hopefully!!
the installer wouldn’t work on my new computer so i didn’t get to play for the last month : ( :( :(
agh, that’s such a shame! I was sort of in a similar situation without a working computer, I only managed to get online for the final day by borrowing my mum’s laptop and installing it with a few hours to go cause I was desperate not to miss the end.
SMT: Imagine: The Final Day
Now that I’m finally back with my own PC, I’m going to make a post about what I did on the last day of Imagine’s international server being online, because it was quite special for me. The end of years of love and dedication.
this is really sad :( goodbye EclairParfait. Goodbye CremeDeMenthe. Goodbye Coulvre and 0800001066.
Yeah… I’m still feeling weird/sad about it now. I’m going to make a lot of posts/art/videos/other things soon though to remember everything by.
I AM TYPING THIS FROM MY NEW COMPUTER. YES. IT’S HERE. FINALLY.
however I still have to install and set up loads of things and do a lot of other stuff so the chances are I still won’t be around a huge amount initially… but it’s so nice to be able to just go on websites easily if I feel like it and not have to put up with my phone, which crashes all the time…
and also, I’m going to Minamicon 20 this weekend, holy crap, that crept up on me… I’m looking forward to it though.
