Did this super quick just to show my new chibi style (took some liberties of more shading though, just so it matched up better with the old one).
2005 to 2012, wow. Time flies, doesn't it?

Despite this summer theme, I personally can't wait for fall!

Eee, it's so cute! I like them both, but I think the only thing I like more from the original is the design on the dress. X3 Either one is adorable~.

:D You and me both! I can't imagine those other ones doing as well at conventions.
Speaking of, do you have any planned this year? I'm still debating if I'm going to Kollision Con, but I'll be at Youma!

the ones you have now are just so cute >w<

and i can't afford to go to these cons. The only one that i def have a plan to have a table at is acen. if i can find a big job then i'll be all over other ones but none as of yet

I know, I'm hoping I make a profit at Youma. Between teh table and the hotel (not to mention the gas and parking) I'm going to be out about $300. And that doesn't even include the cost of supplies. Here's hoping it's super succesful!

We'll have to request to be table neighbors at ACEN next year! You and Tyler going in together again?

oh shit o.o that's a lot of money to be out by. i can't even afford to do that. i really hope you do well, you need to because that's a costly bit.

and that would be awesome! can you really do that? and yeah, but i really don't want to share a table with him, i felt like i could have done better if i was by myself or if my work was the center of attention (wow, that's mean ^^; ). my boyfriend and i are gonna share a table cause he likes to do cute things so he'll be working on small stuff while i do the big project. he also likes coloring so we can do collab stuff as well. i think Tyler wants to be next to us but we'll see.

Neighbor!!!
Yup, you can put down a suggestion of who you'd like tos it by and/or where (some people will ask for the front; doesn't mean it normally happens though).
Aw, that's not mean! You want to get your stuff out there, it's hard to do when another style is sort of domiinating the table. I think a table with you and the BF will do good! And yay collabs!
We'll just have to see where everyone falls. So long as I'm not next to *that* woman again I will be happy.

that's so awesome!
and yeah, we'll have to see how it goes. and trust me, i don't like her either, she's such a snob. i use to be a fan of her work and then i noticed it's not that great and she's just full of herself.

I know! I think I still have one or two of her works favorited, just because I like the characters. She reminds me of these asshole franchisees I had to work under at a Dunkin' Donuts. They have everything they could want, but are still big snobs! Ugh. Especially once you see that it's all templated it just makes me want to go smash my head into a wall.

I am soooo behind in preparatins for youma! (although I think my cosplay is coming along. I have a lot of hot glue gun burns to show for it!) Don't let the theater wear you down; those crabby people need to get out more and go elsewheres.
Once youma is over with this craziness we are hanging out. No exceptions. Lunch, mall, drawing, something!

:D Me too! Still, I sometimes miss the more propotional styles. But these big heads and hair are so cute!

Yeah, I guess, but the whole point of a chibi is a 10-1 head to body ratio (I've been reading up on animagi art. Unfortunately, it doesn't make my drawing any better!) xD

I never knew there were actual guidelines! :o :giggle: That's actually kind of funny. Mine are definetly not 10:1... maybe like 5:1? I used to draw the heads waaaayyy bigger ([link]) but it limits everything you can do with them. And daww, look at the stumpy little legs! :giggle:

Aww, you'll find your style! Lots of practice. You should do the meme floating around! Lots of fun! :D

Yeah I was shocked too... It was in this book I read in the library during my volunteering shift... I guess it just depends on who you were drawing and the style

Yeah, I don't have anything much to redraw... But yeah I've been reading and looking at tutorials about drawing, and I've been practicing...

You'll have to post something new soon! I know I have a few anime tutorial books down in the basement =p When I was first learning I would read those almmost religiously. I do think they helped somewhat, but just remember, they're the base. You'll want to add your own little tweaks :D

Daww, thank you!
I'd love to see yours! It's always fun to see where we've come from.
That was actually a really good piece of me for 2005. You should see some of my stuff from like 2003. Actually, I might have burned it all :giggle: (I still have one sketchbook full of it though. Nice to look back and see really how far I've come!)
