Galacon Done and Dusted

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 2, 2015, 11:02 AM

Galacon was phenomenal.



It only ended 90 minutes ago, but feels like it was weeks ago already.
And I have to say, despite ALL the worries I had about it, it was an absolutely amazing experience.


My first ever convention, my first time ever doing a panel and hell, it was even my first time meeting other people who were interested in the fandom!
Despite a shaky start at the beginning of the first day, since I was pretty overwhelmed by everything that was going on, overall I think I didn't do too bad!

Met some awesome artists here on DA, such as FoxInShadow , Coltsteelstallion, EStories, drawponies and many more!

I finally got to meet the guys of EQD in person, in particular, calpain, who I first met on KnowYourMeme all the way back in 2012; that was pretty fucking cool!

And I met some wonderful people who were a fan of my comics here.
It's both incredible and awkward when someone, in person, tells you how much they appreciate what you make, and hell, some even said that I was an inspiration to their work that they create now, some even wanted autographs; I can't even begin to describe how meaningful and awesome that is in person. :')

Hell, everyone at the convention was just so down-to-earth and kind; HELL, WE RAISED, LIKE, €30'000 EURO IN THE CHARITY AUCTIONS THERE! :dummy:



And of course, my first time doing a panel. 
Despite the inconsistencies in the brochure/website timetable, there was a much bigger turnout than I was expecting!
For a first timer, I think it didn't go too badly, but I've learned many ways to better manage my time and what to do during the panel.
(The panel of the wonderful Tabitha St. Germain and a stellar cast who did a lil' something special went on a little bit longer than originally anticipated, which bit into my own panel time, but man, was it worth it!)
It's a starting point, and hopefully if I do more panels in the future, I'll improve at doing them!



So now, as Acesential so eloquently put, I'm in the Post Con Depression state.
BUT ON THE FLIP SIDE
It makes me really, REALLY, wanna hit up BUCK 2016, as well as basically EVERY CONVENTION EVER.




Flying home tomorrow afternoon, and by Tuesday morning, things should slowly return to normal, making more comics and whatnot for you awesome people.

But man.



That was something special.

Vegguh! I know you've been having fun in the Fatherland past days, but Life is Strange Ep 4 came out last Monday, and you should play it as soon as you can! Pinkie (Happy) Plz by RainbowYoshi305  Seriously, I just finished it, and while it loses a bit of steam in the middle, but oh my gosh the beginning and last 3rd of Episode 4 are awesome! Especially the twist at the end, but I wouldn't THINK of spoiling. :squee:

Seriously doe, it was really good. :meow::heart:

Thanks for no spoilers; unlike what some people have been trying to tell me :v
I'll be on it as soon as I'm home!

Of course, my dear Irishman, wouldn't dream of spoilers!

Though if I may, a bit of advice regarding one part of the game (this isn't a spoiler, not really). There is one part close to the climax of Episode 4 where you have to enter a code on a keypad.

The code is 542.

I know it's a bit odd to just give you an answer to a puzzle, but to be honest the "puzzle" in question is kind of crappy. I've seen multiple playthroughs of Ep 4 and everyone I've seen has fumbled around that part looking for a clue that doesn't exist. As far as I know that puzzle is mostly solved by just guessing. It might save you some irritation to just know the code before hand. ^^;

your art is very good.


i hope you don't mind if i ask a question.
in Photoshop do you use the pen tool or draw free hand, or both, or neither?

Tehe, literally just did a convention panel about this today!

I sketch in Photoshop using a Wacom Bamboo tablet, once I've a finished sketch (Ready to be outlined, coloured etc...) I then switch to using the mouse and the pen-tool.

thank you, that's exactly what i wanted to hear.
(because i own both of those things)
one more question then, if you don't mind. when you sketch do you use the pencil tool? (i know that's a stupid question but i tried it a little while ago and didn't have much luck, derp)

No, I'd use the paint-brush when sketching :)
