well to those who collect them I guess, which isn't me really... I always thought they where a cheap way of Nintendo getting rich.. sure, thet are very cute and highly collectible. But at the prices some go for are a big rip off so I don't collect any but do want the pink Woolly Yoshi ones at the far bottom of the stand there!
But for $26 I don't think so... This was taken at Big W at The Brickworks, Adelaide South Australia. I work for Big W but we don't have this much range in our store... Seeing as this store and the mall in general has been newely built it makes you wonder, these chains have so much money to set up lovely places like these for us... there was a huge screen above the display showing Splatoon videos of gameplay too!
Now all they need is playable consoles and some bean bags scattered around and I'd be there 24/7 like a hobo! :b
Hey guys! I haven't done a journal in a while so I thought I would answer some FAQ's along with some other rants and comic/art updates. WIGU:
pages will NOT
be continued for a while. Lots of you have asked, asked and asked... But to be honest with you all I lack the motivation and can't be bothered continuing this for the time being. I have nothing to really go on from page 29, even though some ideas have crept up and if you're wondering- no, I never have a story board planned for comics. They just happen! I will consider doing more perhaps at a later time, end of the year, next year...I don't know so please stop asking. AVCon- Anime Video Game Convention
is coming to Adelaide, South Australia. 17th-19th July. I will be there and this time, I will have a very special role in attending the event. I will be part of the media/press and will be able to go back stage and all over the place to grab the juicy bits and pieces.
If any one is going, let me know so we can organise a photo shoot and a chat! I will be cosplaying as Vanellope Von Schweets from Wreck It Ralph! So don't be scared of coming up to say hello.
Speaking of, my Vanellope cosplay is almost ready. The fun parts are over, the hair candies where fun to make and ditto with her licorish hair tie. The hoodie turned out pretty good and now I am up to the tights/leggings/stockings she has. The first pair I did turned out horrible! >.< don't ever try acrylic paint on cotton stretch fabric...it will crack and peel as you stretch the fabric... SO...I decided to go with some white stretchy cotton fabric and glue the stripes on instead. Then paint the purple stripes on her left leg.
I will have photos up on my twitter of my cosplay and also of AVCon itself so if you haven't followed me maybe now is the time!? :3 twitter.com/NatSilva TUTORIALS
Some of you have asked about how I draw, colour and submit my art work to dA. I can't really reveal all the trades secrets
but I can and will guide those on what I do and how I do it. Remember, do not copy others works... taking some of the artists advice is great and I am sure they will appreciate you passing on the message of where and who helped out, but do not take their styles. But rather use them as a template for your own creative works and style.
I do have a video on youtube that can guide those on how to draw Mario, again, it is not there to be copied but more of like how I draw Mario and should only be taken as a guide. www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9eykB…
for the updated How I draw Mario video.
You can also subscribe to my channel as I will be uploading more videos of other tutorials, such as How I colour and other video game related stuff~ like the up coming AVCon!
So that's about it I think... I have a few pieces of random art to submit... Not to mention the pending commissions I need to finish colouring (don't worry I haven't forgotten) and the rest of the pending gift art too! I might change my techniques a bit as I get more familiar on how to use certain things, paper, pens and pencils... but to just sum it all up... I am not going to continue with WIGU just yet... give me time! The more you nag the more I lag.
I have a few things to fix before I get back in to art work. This also has to do with life stuff, which is going good but needs my attention. Some of you think I am still living at home with my folks, um no- left the nest years ago... lol. Once you have that challenge on yourself, you will understand what I mean.
That's all for now!
