Ho boy, probably should've said something about how Bronycon was. I've got to say, 8 years of going to conventions and this was probably the best con I've ever been to. Everyone's super nice and talkative, all have a common interest, awesome panels that actually taught good skills in my career field, tons of activities, no worries of panels being overcrowded due to HUGE rooms, and just general nonstop fun and laughs. I'll be honest, I was a bit unsure of what to expect from this weekend, but I'm glad I went and now have even more incentive to continue pushing towards freelance art and animation! Also got to do a lot of networking and handed out a ton of business cards, so that's a plus.
(Freelance Rule #1: ALWAYS have business cards at the ready. They're your #1 tool as an artist...besides a pencil)
I now have a Twitter account! Or rather I've had one for 2 years and never used it until now. I'll be uploading artwork, sketches, and general shenanigans, so if you wanna more closely follow what I'm doing (in a completely non-stalker way) then go ahead and follow me there!
I'm finishing up the last of my big-ass commission list, so hopefully I'll have more time now to start working on other stuff and some original work again. Lots of ponies lately, due to reasons, but don't expect that to be the only thing coming out of me.
And finally, I'd like to announce that I've been invited onto the team at Silly Filly Studios! I'm really excited to work with them and think it's a great step towards making my way into freelance art and animation.
That's all for now. Ciao!
