Hey internetland! Been awhile since I updated my journal, mainly because I started typing out one about my whole experience at Rocky Mountain Fur Con and then lost everything due to not paying attention to what tabs I was closing and by that time it was too late. Eh. So anyways just wanted to say a few quick things.
I had a great weekend at the con and was very successful. My table looked gorgeous for the first time since I brought my whole computer setup, had a matching theme to my business cards, commission price guide, and the coolest thing- a brand new vinyl banner printed by my friend ~RKTDWG. He also printed me diecut logo stickers so I was all pimped out. Didn't get the chance to put out all my new merch though, I had plannnns but guess it'll have to wait for next year. I put the Charizard and Theod heads on my table too and was able to actually get some work done on the spot with the watercolor chibis- which did well so I'll be offering them as commissions permanently.
Apart from the table I had in the dealer's room, I also ran 3 panels this year (omg crazy) which meant I was occupied with something the entire con. I felt the beginner's costume panel was a bit rough but we absolutely nailed our advanced creature costuming panel. Of course that's many thanks to my lovely co-host ~sgtknifeman for running them with me. I also did a rather last-minute panel about the 12 principals of animation and for being so rushed and ill-equipped for it, it was also very well received and people seem to have a lot of fun. I have plans to make it better if I attempt it again next year too.
All sorts of shenanigans and meeting cool people happened all weekend, notably got to chat with badasses Morphology and NorthShep. I also put on my stilts for about a half hour each day and paraded around the con with them for a bit much to my own amusement. There was even a video of me dancing in them taken Sunday night that I really hope I get to see! Con was run well, it keeps getting bigger and better. Also got my Swedish Fish fix from my dealer room buddy =FireMaster13 :>>>
Lookit all the sweet art I got during the con!
Welp first up I wanted to mention that if you're going to Nan Desu Kan anime convention this weekend and not attending the Beginner and Advanced Creature Costume panels ~sgtknifeman and I are hosting, you should feel bad >:C Because you'd be missing out on the most super special awesome panel there! Check out my deviation here to learn all about it.
Along with that, particularly for those interested but cannot attend NDK or who live elsewhere, we shall be recording the panel presentations and making them available on YouTube to watch! NEW VIDEO FROM CANINEHYBRID!? IT CANNOT BE!!
And now for something I know many of people have been asking and waiting for and I'm happy to say that I finally have plans to put this in the works! Be prepared because I'm ready to offer pre-orders on Canine Resin Masks! I'll be getting a deviation up about it very shortly (so this will be updated when that happens) but thought I'd give a lot of you the opportunity to get an awesome discount that you won't ever see again.
I'm offering $30 off if you order a resin canine blank from me right now. This offer will be good until the clay sculpt has been revealed this could be as soon as next week or as late as the end of this month, but either way this discount won't last for long. After the sculpt preview goes online, the discount becomes $15 off and that offer will last until the first cast is made from the new mold. So If you order during the special pre-order sale, you'll get it shipped to you the moment I have the first batch made. See a preview and check out the new item in my webstore here: store.caninehybrid.com/Resin_M…
Just ask if you have any questions! Hope everyone is doing well. Now it's back to work for me... I have art to work on
