Ms Marvel. Stockton Con 2015 art contest by Bfetish
Ms Marvel. Stockton Con 2015 art contest
So yeah I took a lemon and made lemonade.So many flaws from start to finish with this piece.But I was committed to this project and decided to follow through on it whether it was good or bad. From pencils,to inks, to the 5 or so hours it took to digitally color and tweak was all done by me.

    It really doesn't look like my style of work.It does have its own charm.Don't worry I'm not straying away from drawing big titties and booties.Sometimes it feels good just to draw something that isn't gonna give me drama. Feel free to critique the hell out of it.I already submitted it. I didn't win last year when I submitted what I felt was good work on my part. So maybe I might win with my not so best work.

        Things are slowly moving forward.But its moving very slowly. I need color work done ASAP.What sucks is that our (Blue Baby Art) fortuitous luck seems to be running out. The people we commission to color got real lives and at this time we might not get color work done in time to make new prints by early August.I'm sure some of you are like you got a whole month.Yeah we got a month. But I also got to do an inventory count and decide which prints are going to be showcased, which ones are going to be boob tubed,and which ones are going to be retired by not being mass produced. My partner finally feels the need to want to go to a printer to mass produce our work.But he is leaving the inventory work and decisions in my hands. 
   This would be good news and it is. Only its on short notice and I got a lot of catching up to do. I'm taking on more commission work lately.So that's taking up time as well.  Hopefully I can get 7 to 8 new prints ready for sale by late July. With that being said....


   We are looking for more colorists. If you can digital color and got a quick work turn around time and want to make some extra money comment below or drop me a note. I'm going to be blunt, the person paying you is a cheap bastard. So far we have been lucky had have worked with colorists who have been kind enough to charge us way below the market value of decent to good professional digital color commission work. Some offers we have received were just plain ridiculous.I'm talking a one character simple background color commission costing $80 to $100.Which wouldn't be so bad if the colorist was a known established pro. But if your a no name whose work is as good but not better than who we work with then your services are too pricey. So far our budget is to go no higher than $30. Anything higher is negotiable based on the type of color commission. But your work has to be good. We will give a paid try out assignment. You meet our expectations we will offer you more color commission assignments.If you any further questions drop me a note.

     I'm not in panic mode yet but I need those that are interested to respond soon.

$10 sketch Litchi faye-ling colors by DualMask

Fellow ICC member Jonathan A. Price knocked it out of the park with his stunning color work on one of my $10 sketches! I've seen his work before on Deviant Art and had a hunch that his color work would look awesome combined with my sexy line work. The funny thing is that I was going to draw another fan art of this character.But now I don't have to.

He is open for color commissions.But don't keep him to busy. I need him too lol. :P jk

Character::Litchi Faye Ling from the fighting game BlazeBlue.
Drawn by Me ^_^ 
Colors by DualMask (aka Jonathan A. Price)

    Well I'm still around.I got 1 more month until my con season truly begins.So that means I'm going to be handing out color commissions to my available colorists. Hopefully they are not too busy and will note me back soon. My expectations for this year are pretty low. As of now my mind is not set on any long term goals.I'm really contemplating putting this artist alley venture on hiatus until I can find stable employment or until I can figure out a way to profit of just doing commissions and Patreon. If anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears.


    My buddy and a few other people are suggesting that I do League of Legends fan art. I know of the game.I don't even play the game nor care enough to do fan art of the characters.The last "suggestion" I took was to do MLP fan art. While I sold quite a few prints at cons back in 2013,the prints no longer are selling.The popularity of show has pretty much run its course and the band wagon Bronies pretty much jumped off the MLP fandom's wagon the early part of 2014. I know League of Legends is pretty much at its peak of popularity.Geeks love cosplaying as the characters. There is no guarantee that cosplay popularity will translate into great print sales.Its not that I can't draw League of Legends fan art.Its just I don't really care to and I have no emotional investment or love for the characters to want to waste art supplies in drawing them.

  I chatted with a few other artists concerning print sells of League of Legends fan art and its pretty much a crap shoot. Only prints of the top 5 recognizable characters sale and the art has to be really good. The fans can tell if you have love for the characters and the game.And they can tell when your just doing fan art to capitalize on the growth of the fandom. I told my buddy I would do it but he would have to commission (pay) me to do it. But like the cheap bastard he is he was like "if you don't want to draw it,then don't draw it" Even though he was constantly  suggesting (telling me) I should draw it. When I said he would have to pay me to do it he stopped bugging me about it. What do you guys think?Should I do League of Legends fan art?

   Over the past couple of weeks I started posting my work on group on Facebook that is for Artist alley artists. I had a feeling that some of the members are a very nitpicky and judgemental.They have no qualms about pointing flaws in your work and offering critiques in the form of suggestions. I admit that I put a small target on myself when I pointed out the some bullshit that is in the AA art community. So far the Critiques in the form of suggestions and people dissecting my work have not been bad.Its just slightly annoys me that I got to defend my work every time I post it in that group.Eh, it is what it is.


Cogs Con Review


Considering that that show was about 2 weeks ago I'm surprised I still remember it. So here is the brief review on what went on.

* Luis picked me up on Friday because the con was on Saturday.So I spent the night at his house. If anything it was just good to get out of Stockton for a day.

*The first thing I noticed when I got up Saturday morning when I checked the Cogs Con website is that they posted a tweet about us and posted the link to the Blue Baby Art group page here on DA. They also posted that our work was *ahem* for mature audiences only. I was like WTF!!!??? Granted I can see why they thought that based on the work they saw in the Blue Baby Art group.One of our members posts their work often and its a bit on the naughty side.Its good art.Its just young people these days get offended over seeing nude titty'S and booties over a B cup.Hell the art doesn't haven't to have nudity for them to get offended.So the organizer thought we were selling that art work that was pictured on the group page here on DA.Which we don't.
  
   So right from beginning we had one strike against us.

* So we get to con.We 've come to find it that Cogs Con is put on by the art dept of the Cogswell Polytechnical College.Which was hosting the con on their campus.Their campus consisted of a building smaller than most elementary schools. The funny thing is that Cogswell is one of California's most oldest colleges. They had a photo of a graduating class # 112 and the photo was I think the graduating class of 2010. So yeah the college has been around since the late 1890's.


*As we were setting up I noticed they had all the artists and vendors in the same room.Emphasis on the word room. It had a stage and looked like they used the room to do motion capture or theater type work. The organizer came up to meet us I guess right when he heard from someone that we needed an extra artists badge for myself. He also wanted to make sure were not displaying the art he saw in our DA group page.He told us that he personally didn't have an issue with it,but he wanted to make sure we didn't have nude titties and booties being displayed. I had to clarify that the art he saw on our DA Group  wasn't mine and the art we are selling has no nudity.He was  apologized for the posting the wrong link and gave us a water bottle with our free lunch(sandwich) ticket. ore on the sandwich ticket later.

* We finished setting up and pretty much the con started and.........uh where are the people O_O? So from the time the con started to when it ended I swear the artists,vendors, and the cons organizers/volunteers who they called minions out numbered the cons attendees.I was expecting  100 to 200 tops in terms of attendance to the con. I'm thinking maybe no more than 20 people showed up. And that is pretty damn pathetic. So pathetic in fact we didn't cover the cost of the $20 table. A $20 TABLE!!! We were 10 bucks short ::sigh::.Like I said,it was fucking pathetic. Whats even sadder is that the 20 attendees who should up were students or former students of the frickin school.

*They also screwed up when it came time to serving the artists and vendors our free sandwiches.They did have a maid cafe.But it was poorly supervised and organized. Some people waited 40 minutes for their food.I left the aid cafe and returned a little later.I still had to wait like 20 minutes for my order to arrive. They ordered a shit load of pizza for the con organizers and volunteers.I guess they noticed that we could smell the pizza and offered to give us pizza instead of waiting almost an hour the sandwiches. Just everything was poorly executed.

*It wasn't all bad. Luis did a few cosplay photo shoots with a few cosplayers. We met some cool artists and got to hang out with a couple of young ladies. One was a cute cosplayer Luis met at Fanime back in 2013. And the young lady was her friend who was also an artist that had her booth right across from ours.We headed over to Castro street in Mountain View and ate some Ramen at an actual Ramen restaurant. Overall I was happy to just get out of Stockton for a day. Spending my evening with 2 cute young women were just icing on the cake.

The Good

*Free Sammiches!!Yay ^_^!
* A free water bottle! Yay ^_^!
*Spending time with 2 cute hotties! Double Yay ^_^!
*Seeing other artists.
* The band that performed at the con after party.
* The Ramen I ate

The Bad
*The fact that I have to skip  to the ugly to explain how bad everything was.
*A guy who came by my booth twice in order to tell me how he doesn't like boobs.
* A buddy of mine named Jerry had a table  there as well and made a killing selling off his naughty manga.Oh the irony! People had no problem  buying  porn manga yet get offended when they see my art work WTF!!

The Ugly

* The artists,vendors, and con staff outnumbered the con attendees.
* We couldn't make enough money to cover the cost of a $20 table. And we were really trying hard to sale our prints too.
*We were probably black listed before we got there based on the art posted in our DA group.
*The con had a somber vibe because the school building was being demolished.The students and college alumni wrote and did art work all over the walls all over the place in the building to I guess leave something behind.They are getting a new building but many of the con staff were kinda sad knowing that their college campus(building) was being demolished.
* Waiting so long to get a free sammich.We had to pay for our drinks.We did get a free bottle of water though.
* They covered up all the vending machines so we couldn't use them.We were forced to buy and wait for over priced teas and sammiches.

So....yeah it was just a poorly ran gathering more so than a con. I knew the $20 for a AA table was too good to be true.

Updates

*I'm finishing up a Ms Marvel fan art for the Stockton Con contest. Hopefully they will allow e to make prints out of it to sale at the con.

* Next up is Super Sonico and Black Butler. I will ink up the drawings I have left and get them to my colorists.

Hey, I remember that not too long ago you watched me on my first account iAmCloudSky

& I'm really thankful that you took interest in me, & decided you'd support me. But awhile back, I decided I'd make a newer account, & pursue a new path. & so, here I am.

If you'd like to watch me on here instead, it's appreciated.  

Keep in touch! & even get to know each other a bit. We might just be two people behind a screen, but that doesn't mean that we can't be friends.

Thank you.
