Fanime was over last week and I forgot to update, but tere isn't really much to talk about besides I sat in AA drawing commissions most of the time and I was super tired.
- I was really really really tired all weeked, and only got aobut 21 hours of sleep for the 4 days.
- I got a lot of "Where did you get that?" for my hoody
- I think I missed visiting some people. OTL; But really the AA was a lot bigger than it was last year and I could barely find people even with them telling me their table numbers.
- Michael and Anthony sat behind me, and at random times during the con Michael free-styled in front of my table to my iPod. He even had a dance battle with another con goer.
- We had an entire row to ourselves, and we basically went spent the con running up and down it pestering each other. Because of the change in layout all rows consisted of six tables, so it fit us perfectly.
- I'm becoming tired of how I work up to sell at and during AA.
I'm starting to become less and less interested selling in AA the way that I sell now. I'm really tired of keeping all the small things organized and doing commissions. From now on I'm going to follow what Nichols did, just dumping everything into bins, labeling the price and letting the buyer kind of have a searching game. I'm also only dropping all my complicated commission junk and just doing $5 single character half page sketches.
I think the main reason I'm tired of selling, or doing all the preparation to do so is because I spend more time drawing fanart for prints then about things that I actually care about, and then most of the time my prints don't move. Predominately I just want to draw my original characters and illustrations about them instead and work to be known about my characters. I know originals almost never sell at cons, but honestly I don't care anymore, since my fanart prints don't really go anywhere, and my main profit comes from small things or commissions. At least if I'm drawing the stuff that I actually want to work on I'll actually enjoy showcasing it more. Don't get me wrong, fanart's fun to draw, but I rarely want to draw and go out of my way complete an image, mostly sketches or doodles.
Also E3? Umm yea Sony kind of amazing! The PS Vita looks so nice omgosh. I was really surprised by it's price tag, the $250 for the wi-fi version considering how much stuff is backed in that tiny thing, cameras, six-axis, two touch screens, REAL analog sticks etc. I'm so glad that the touch screen controls aren't required for the Uncharted
game, I'm mean it's nice to make the game easier to play for casuals, but they know not to make it reliant on touch screen though to satisfy the usual audience.
Also a lot of UC3
stuff was shown, and I am so excited for the third game and the multi-player. Naughty Dog really went crazy to get the multi-player more up to date with other competitive shooters.
I'm not sure about the Wii-U yet, predominately because I don't want to invest my hopes into a system that could possibly turn into a magnet for family friendly games and casual gamers like what happened to the Wii. I mean around the launch the Wii was really good, with Brawl, LoZ: Twilight Princess
, etc. I'll probably end up waiting a year or two to see what games are made for it since I really want to play a few Wii games, but not enough that I would invest in the system. But wow. It's actually a controller. As for the screen thing it could be really interesting, in a sense it's a large DS for your TV, and you could use it to mark things down on a map etc. There's still motion sensing, but it's not reliant on it as much as the Wii was, and all that stuff depends on execution. Unfortunately though most of the games show in the trailer for the Wii-U were casual games, but IDK it could really go either way depending on what games are made etc.
. YES. OHMYGOSH. And apparently SE is going to keep in mind all the feed back they recieved from the first one.

Lasty, I got a new puppy Saturday. It was really random and half unplanned. I mean I already told my father for our next dog we should get a Shiba Inu about two years ago, so my dad has been constantly looking and he found an ad in the paper adverting 8 week pups the weekend of Fanime and it kind of just went from there. He mostly likely is going to be named Bamboo. He's already somewhat spoiled and a drama queen, but he's unbelievably adorable.
We brought him to Petco today because no one was around to keep an eye on him, and a lot of the shoppers and worker's loved him. (: A lot of "Is he a shiba?!". One guy even asked to show his wife in his car, I went with him too of course to make sure Bamboo was safe. A lot of petting and cooing for him too.
