This year Vcon (Vancouver's Fantasy and Science Fiction con) will be in Surrey at the Sheraton Guilford Hotel on the first weekend of October (3rd-5th). The theme is "Military Might", so if that is your thing aside just simply Sci-fi and Fantasy (the themes of the con), I recommend checking it out. If you are short of cash, the entrance to the Artist Alley, Art Gallery
and Vendor Room is free to help out the creators get some extra income (the events of course are
but this is still a pretty good deal and supports the artists). The previous years the location certainly was not ideal, but I am back into supporting them after my and want to help it succeed. However, I will only be displaying
in the art gallery room and will not be returning as an artist alley vendor this year, or possibly next year. Some of my best prints will be for sale in the artist gallery room, however, and I will also be selling my framed or matted work on display (digital and original pieces).
Currently I am working on the last 30% of my new artwork for my gallery panel. Originally I planned to use that forest fox remake
of mine, but I manged
to save the file as a non-photoshop file before the computer was reformatted (need to start over), so I got a bit discouraged and decided to make use of this fail of mine to think up a new concept. The new one is sort of an experiment and me finally getting into painting a battle scene idea of sorts...
so while it is not as detailed as my previous works for Vcon, I am still satisfied with getting closer to one of the other styles I like. The only concern is if I accidentally
dip too much into being detail-orientated
and spend extra worries on making it "better"...
and I guess being sick with a flu as I am is clearly putting me behind (I had the flu aches yesterday, so I didn't even want to pick up a pencil let alone sit in front of a computer screen for hours).
Anyway, I should go back to my projects and head to bed soon...
or head to bed and do it tomorrow probably is better *sigh*.
