Conventions



Hey guys! I hope you're all doing well!
First thing I want to say is that I'm going to try to drill out the rest of the points commissions by this week-end because...

I finally decided to try selling art at a con.


I've tabled as a helper before but this time I'll actually be putting my work out there...

Now for a lot of people, it's no big deal but for me it is.
Like I've mentioned before, I'm a little insecure about my work sometimes... especially about selling.

Am I pricing things too high? Would anyone be interested in what I make? Am I ever going to get better, etc?

It's weird but since (as I've mentioned before) no one in my RL friends really ever seems to care about my art (even when I show them), it feels like I'm almost unfit to try and make any money off of it. I draw mainly to tell stories, make my fears, anxieties, excitement & joy into something tangible. So when I tell my friends I'm going to try and do this, I'm telling them that I'm putting part of myself out there... and I get nervous about no one accepting that part of myself.

I'm not insecure about who I am as a person and I'm okay with meeting new people & going out and trying new things... but my drawings are something intricately woven into my heart... they helped me get over lots of personal struggles and probably saved me multiple times from depression (and have probably also been the source of a few bouts of that. lol) which is why I get so down-hearted when I feel like no one in my life accepts it as a part of me. It's like a sore spot for me sometimes so I get really anxious about it.

P.S: Cash commission holders will be worked on with TOP PRIORITY.

NOW THAT emo stuff BEING SAID...


What should I draw for the con?



I was thinking of making little merch like: postcards, stickers, buttons, bookmarks, (maybe keychains ) & prints...

I've been hardcore Kingdom Hearts lately so I was thinking fan art of that for sure...
but what else should I draw that's popular? No Pokemon though, my friend at my table will have that covered (plus, I don't really have fun drawing them for some reason), I was thinking some Attack on Titan too but please suggest!

Also, this sadly means that I'll have close my commissions for a while.

I maybe make the occasional exception for a chibi but that will all depend on what I'm working on and my schedule.
As for my comics though...










Comics


Okay, 2 things about this section of my journal...

The first is: I want to see if I can sell my Ryousuke story (part 1)
Ronin Ryousuke: Ch 0.1 by BurningArtist

And I'm thinking of making part 2 as well (it's been a long time coming)...


Do you think part 1 is enough of a story to sell to anyone?


I'd give out a card with my DA (and eventually facebook page) so that people might be able to see the second part as I make it.
Good idea? Crap idea? Should I not waste money on printing this? Please tell me what you think!


Also... because I'll be working on high quality work (heaven forbid!) I won't be posting as much as I normally do.
So, I was thinking of bringing back my my old Gaia comic to this account:
Half Chibis by BOWBSManga


I had already started (a few years ago) on a bit of reworking the first pages of this 200 + page comic but for the most part, it will be reposted as it was originally.
Now, my art has changed a whoooooooooooole lot since 2005 (when I drew the first page) but thankfully, time will be super-sped and you'll see an improvement pretty quickly.
So please try to tolerate the first pages and remember that this is a GaiaOnline comic from 2005... so a lot has probably changed.

Still, I figure this is better than nothing and might keep you guys entertained until I reach August (when the Con is).

So, do you guys want me to start posting up that comic here again?

(This way, I can also finally close my BOWBS account too)


BA needs to know!
