It's the year of the money, er I mean MONKEY!
According to the Chinese calender... and it's also MY YEAR! Yes, I am a proud monkey.. Although I would love to be a cat haha. That brings me to some thing totally off topic but under the same thing... FRUITS BASKET! Has anyone seen the anime? I have it english dubbed and when I saw it years a go here on free TV (SBS I think in Australia) I loved it so much! ^^
Ok, so that was random...
Now fr some serious business... FINISH ALL PENDING COMMISSIONS-
I have a few commissions to do and I want to thank those waiting for them! Being under a lot of weird ups and downs, anxiety and depression and life, work etc on top of that doesn't mix well >_> and it has taken me a long long time to get my head and soul around getting back to what I like doing, art work. PENDING GIFT ARTS-
The same applies to my free gift art to those who made the list last year, Ugh you guys are awesome for being so patient! I am not worthy of your patience and awesomeness, really! D: But I will finish your gifts and post them up, I have a huge load of art to dump all over this place...so look out below! ;D MORE ONLINE WIPS, ACTIVITY AND THAT..STUFF...
I don't have Facebook, I feel I can function without it- even though I think it's a great idea to have for those wanting to expand their audience and such, for many it's become a disease and I don't want to deal with that... BUT I do have Twptter which is simple enough and I can use to just dump random bits of crap and WIPS, Day In The Life (what I am working on for the near future) and some Tutorials and other exclusive stuff only for Twit-heads :b so if you aren't watching me yet on there- why wait? : D do it now! NatSilva On Twitter.
I also have a Yotube: NatSilva on YouTube
which hasn't got much... but I will be making "Day In The Life" series when I get a chance, filling it with random bits of random I do on a daily basis... COSPLAY DAMNIT!
Yessss... the long term thing of doing cosplay, I hesitate at making my own crap, seriously- to those who dress make and build their own props etc... you rock! I have no craft bug in me XD I can sew and that's about it! DON'T JUDGE ME!!! I will try and make my own Valentine Cosplay, which I am sketching up and have decided on what works best for my original Cute-pid (aka half cat half cupid thing...), so far I have an idea in my brain about how it can mesh together. I am not a very provocative photographic face, model etc but I have been having vast amounts of support and inspiration from some of my amazing watchers and friends on Twitter which I suggest you go and follow cause they are awesome! <3
If you have any ideas or would like to donate to this whole cosplaying thing, drop me a note!
Even if it's with props and bits and pieces you no longer want/need/use or have growing mold on...I will gladly give them a good home..except fr the mold, that can just go...lol.
Ummmmm,.... ADELAIDE MINI MAKER FAIRE K GO!
Even if it's in what, November... I am still keen and willing to go and have some of my arts and crafts including headbands, plushies and of course...traditional laminated pieces of my art out for display and for sale!
You are invited to come and say hello! Snap up a photo, grab some goodies and support a local artist. You can find out more info here: Adelaide Mini Maker Faire AVCON 2016
You thought I'd forget? Betch please.... ;D Happily and proud Volunteer of the Anime & Video Game Convention here in Adelaide, South Australia- I am happy to inform that this year I will be going as a volunteer. In past years I have been part of the media crew (which was an awesome experience and last year we got to meet and say hello to Hex from Good Game TV show on ABC 3)
So this year I am set to stomp the grounds of the Con helping out my fellow gamers and Anime geeks and freaks, which I love you all! <3
So if you are local, interstate or come from the Moon...and gonna come to AVCon 2016 PLEASE OMFG, note me and we can totally hang out! NEKO NATION 20156- ADELAIDE
We went, we danced, we partied hard....and then we went home :b lol. It was awesome!!! <y cosplay was a original concept of Luna from Sailor Moon Crystal, the hair was an asshole to do but I don't regret one minute of it as I got noticed for what I attempted to create on my head! You can see more photo's exclusively on my twotter page including my eye makeup for that night. Pretty much, Neko Nation is a full on 18+ event at a nightclub situated smack bang in the middle of pretty much every major city...in Australia....wait, the world?
I don't know.. haha but I did enjoy myself with a bunch of mates. The scene was amazing, catgirls and cat boys serving free sushi and candy, chip tunes, 90's old music, eletronic music and local DJ's and proud cat people loving cosplaying and having a great time! The venue was pretty good for the amount of people, it got busy real quick and the line was happening well before we rocked up. I sure hope Neko Nation return to Adelaide as I feel so relaxed being part of such an amazing mob of easy going geeks!

Even though I have some commissions I'd like to finish before I go ahead and take more, you can help me be more motivated and push my lazy ass back in to work by sending me a note if you would like a commission! Please note, I do NOT do points commissions or requests. You can find out more about my commissions deals and FAQ's here:
CommissionsHi! And welcome to my Commissions journal! Here you will find information you need to read and know before asking for a commission. By the way, a commission is a paid piece of work. Since most of my materials are traditional (paper, pencils, markers, pens and paints etc).. it costs money to do so I cannot accept points for commissions. I WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE FOR THE BIRTHDAY AND HAPPY NEW YEARS WISHES AND COMMENTS!! THANKS GUYS!
Please read the following- if you want a commission....
*EDIT: some of you have asked a few questions about extra characters and points for commissions, to make it all clear and so I don't have to repeat myself and waste both our times here are the FAQ's:
I only accept PayPal, Money Orders, Bank Transfers (if in Australia I can also do Cash and local drop off pick up)- NO POINTS COMMISSIONS.
I charge for the whole image not per character. If you note me with your description I can then quote you on how much your commission will be. Obviously the more there is on the image the more it will cost or vary w
