Well, this is new, a convention schedule journal entry.  The most I usually do in Art Shows, but this year is different... this year I enter into the murky depths of convention vendoring.

So, first up will be River City Comic Expo, here in downtown Little Rock Arkansas.  It's a one day event that from the sounds of things will probably expand as it gets bigger.  I'm super stoked about this one as it is local and being a 1 day event, it's going to give me a hands on non-too threatening feet first feeling into this new world.

A week after that will be Animefest, which I'm not savvy enough to have a table for yet, but will be participating in the Art Show.  This is where I have a tendency to put up my Originals for sale.

Finally, the news I got this morning, was a table at NightMare Nights(Muppet Flail).  This is going to be what tells me if I have the cajones to do this line of work hehe.  I hope I have it in me.  

Wish me luck!

Ponies of the 5 Rings - Aiko no Hocho Hime by amypeterson
Ponies of the 5 Rings - Aiko no Hocho Hime
Aiko no Hocho Hime, or as she prefers Hocho Hime, is the P5R equivalent of Princess Cadence.

She was a request piece, thus the gold kimono (as opposed to a possible pink one), however, I kinda like it more?

Her hairstyle color scheme changed a few times.  I was going to go with the Pantyhose version of black hair with the colors underneath, but it just didnt look correct.  I based this hair design on a wig by YaYa Han.

This isn't a scan but a photograph.  They came out too washed out, and as is, this is after several goes in photoshop.  It doesnt do it as much justice as I wished.

This is it

This is going to be the year

I will break out! (runs back under a rock)

Just submitted to Nightmare Nights, so fingers crossed I can get a vendor space!

Planning on expanding my Ponies of the Five Rings mythos.  I dont know if I will create an actual printed scenario, I'm not that great of a storyteller, but if I can give people the ideas of how to start and play the game, then that makes me happy.  
I will soon create character sheets for the Mane 6, and then proceed from there.  The problem is finding a suitable relationship between how Princesses and Royalty works in MLP.  There is a prince, and he is related to Princess Celestia, but he isnt magical in the same sense she is.  Now, there is a King, but he is also from a different zone, so do I treat that like America (President) and England (Queen)?  Then how does THAT correlate to the powers of Celestia and Luna?  Where does Cadence and Twilight fit in this? How do I convert that to l5r, which whilst Asian inspired, is still it's own thing.

Its all so confusing.  I find it amusing when I get into these discussions with my husband, who kknows more l5r lore then Pony lore.  Its eveen more hilarious when we do this at a fancy restaurant (Waffle House is fancy right?)

I am also looking at perhaps working on PonyFinder characters too... more on that soon mwahaha

Lost Aussie somehow ended up in Arkansas of all places.
Been drawing and painting since I watched my brother do it without any training what so ever (jerk) and not do anything with it, so I did. Well... trying to anyway!

My favourite medium is Prismacolor Markers, though I am starting to branch into jewellry and digitial.

It's all good. We've been talking about having art-focused meetups. Maybe we can put these on a day more convenient for you?

Beautiful work all around on the Ponies of the 5 Rings pieces. I couldn't pick just one to comment on, so I'm here instead, and I hope that's OK. As someone who's a fan of both, well, I had to say it's about time...and I'd love to see your Rokuquestria takes on Celestia and Luna.

I'm thinking about it. Luna was baffling me a little bit, but when I made Celestia more like Ammaterasu, like someone else suggested, Luna fitted in easier. I didn't want to make her Fu Leng, which is more Sombra (if they'd give him more screen time lol)

The muro drawing, by the way, was literally the result of clicking a wrong button, hence, why it's empty.
