Dreaming of Pokemon

One of the main features of an anime convention I look forward to most is the Artist Alley. I'm excited to say that I will be getting a commission from Juri, an anime and fantasy artist who will be attending AnimeNEXT 2010.

Check out her gallery here: jurithedreamer@deviantart. She's skilled with watercolor, ink, and color pencils, and looking at her work makes me want to practice with watercolor more. She also won AnimeNEXT's t-shirt contest, and I plan on getting one of those shirts...

I already got a commission from her last year:

This is one of my RP characters, Candace, as a police cadet... eating doughnuts. How typical!

This year, I'll be getting a commission of both Candace and her partner, Brahm (my boyfriend's RP character). They'll be drawn as Pokemon trainers... Yes, that's right. Pokemon trainers. Ugh, I need more practice with drawing full figures...

(RP = Role Play, for those of you who don't know.)

Candace's starter pokemon will be Shinx; Brahm's will be Misdreavus.

I still haven't grown out of pocket monsters, even though I don't know about it as well as others. I like the whole concept of having monster companions whom you can train on go on journeys with. Haha, I'm such a kid.

Tea Cats and Birthdays

"Tea Cats" Acrylic on 8 x 8 canvas.

So yeah, I'm 22 now. I'm getting old, but I still have a mindset of an 18-year-old. I didn't really go out to drink and do that nonsense party stuff, but instead I had a picnic with friends and had little dinners. :)

Foo Dogs

This is a series project I did for Drawing II back in Spring 2009, all done in watercolor. The last piece is a pencil drawing from Drawing I... I hope to do more pieces like these in the future.

"Japanese Chin"
My second favorite.

This one's my favorite out of the bunch. His face looks ugly, funny, and ridiculous. His muzzle looks like a pair of... I'm not saying anything.



"Scottish Terrier"

Probably the scariest out of the series...

"Basset Hound"

"Foo Dogs (Tattoo)"
It all started with a "tattoo" assignment back from my Drawing I class in Fall 2008...

Art Dump 1

"Happy Meal" Acrylic. Spring 2009.
Mm, Shrimp Tempera w/ curry rice.

"Death by Flowers" 3D. Fall 2009.
My cat, Vegas, checking the dead bird out. No, it's not a real body.

"Ladybug" Acrylic. Fall 2009.

"It's Time" Acrylic. Spring 2009.

"Feathers" Ink. Spring 2009.
I'm not a big fan of ink, but I like how this turned out.

"Blankets" or "Leopard in Blue Diaper" Pastel. Spring 2009.
My mom gave this piece the more awkward title.
