EEEEEE hehehe~ <3 I love birthday fanart. It's the best. In the future I would like to have birthdays more frequently. 8D For more fanart.
I love it! It's also a really unique depiction of Vidu and Skittlez. With the paper cut style. <3 And the grungy texture is super appropriate.
WAAAAAAAAH you won't be at A-kon. 8( Juno was asking me if I would do your panels, but I'm not sure. Do you have any materials from these panels you've done in the past? Like an outline? I'm not exactly sure how to approach either subject and I'm worried attendees who have seen your panels in the past will have expectations that I won't meet.
No, alas, I can't make it to A-Kon this year. It's a matter of a schedule conflict, and also money being a bit extra-tight this year. Next year, though! Next year! Andew filmed all my past panels. Are there any ones in particular you want to see? For the anatomy panel, I got a whiteboard and dry-erase marker from the guys in charge of the rooms, and leaped straight into audience questions; super-duper easy. People would be like, "How do you draw a nose?" and I'd be all, "Well, the nose has these different parts, and when you think of it like this in three dimensions, it's not as hard as it seems..." and I'd draw on the board to illustrate what I'm talking about. (Bring a rag or something to erase with.) My watercolor panels have been kind of a mess. I think literally anything you do will be a step up from what I've done. A lot of the problem has been people not being able to see. Talk to someone about getting an overhead projector that can show what's going on on a table. Perhaps make some little squares showing examples of different techniques, like salt or masking fluid, or a color wash? And just try to answer questions as best you can. Bring some examples of your stuff and be prepared to answer questions about how you've done what. Expect about five people remaining in the room at the end.
