Ok so the last time I went to PMX was 2004, its first year. There was no Artist Alley, and by the time there was, the convention had not grown. At all. If anything it shrank. It's still doing ok, but they haven't expanded much, partly because they changed dates a lot, and locations even more.

So registration for a table was a huuuuge cluster fuck but thankfully [profile] catnapcaps was splitting her table with me so we worked things out.

She came over the night before and we got ready with our merch and luggage. Drove over, checked in, got our badges, got our table, and started setting up a bit at a time. They had us starting to late in the day, it was weird. But they combined the swap meet with the artist alley so we got to sell all night, which was really nice. Also their tables were SO NARROW that they put two together and gave us more space than we usually get at cons. 8D

Had a lot of people come up to me asking about ALA since registration was going to go up the Monday after PMX, so that was interesting. ~_~

Lots of my ALA buddies were at the con, [profile] rebootable was actually able to make it and stayed in the room with us...

Nothing really spectacular happened, other than decent amounts of sleep. Sold a few things at the swap meet, found a Vagrant Story strategy guide for $5 (I was so excited!), and then a FF12 guide for ~$15. Those were my only purchases. The Dealer's Hall was... OK, but catered to Lolita and fashion more than anything else. There were a few manga booths but they had nothing I needed.

On Saturday [profile] sanjicat and I hung out for a bit and talked about rooming with Kevin from ALA Signage, for ALA.

I didn't do too well in sales but I mostly made back the cost of the con/hotel, the bulk of which CNC paid for since I was driving her. >_> Made a few new buddies though :3

Rebootable took CNC home on Sunday and that was that. 3 days of PMX, over.

Leaving tomorrow morning with CatNapCaps and we'll be near the door of the Artist Alley. :D

So, PMX is coming up in a few weeks, and my art sucks. (Not utterly, but... well... it doesn't sell.)

So, after submitting art to 4chan, I actually got some great advice and help amidst the insults.

I'm now taking it upon myself to redraw my Jrock portraits. In particular, the Black Tank top series. Finished Toaster tonight, working on Miya right now. Yujje and Satochin afterward, and maybe Tsukasa if I have any time left. I might go back to PolyKarbon to get more tips from less anonymous sources. XD

I also want to get my Mortal Kombat!Scorpion art up to snuff since MK9 is coming out soon, so hopefully I can get some pose help with that.

I'll scan it all when it's ready to be colored. :D

Photobucket Been working on this for a while. What I'm most impressed with is that I can flip it and it still looks good. :D
