Artist Alley First-Timer? What You Need to Know!

Artist Alley First-Timer? What You Need to Know!
A little advice after my time at the artist alley.
by ArtByMelissaM
:star: An original article by ArtByMelissaM
Artist Alley: My First Time!
:bulletred: Many of us have been to some form of comic or anime convention and traveled through the artist alley. The first time I ever went to a convention was WonderCon in San Francisco, California, and the first place I stopped was at the artist alley. I remember being so surprised that there was actually a place completely devoted to artists. After browsing through the artist alley and meeting some of the artists, I thought to myself, “One day, you’ll be here, too.”  About 5 years later, I was coerced into getting my first artist alley table at Sac-Con in Sacramento, California on March 6th, 2011.
:bulletred: Preparing to have an artist alley table was one of the most stressful thin

No worries... I am not about to die. (at least I am not aware of that). for some weird reason it just didn't take as long this time... sure I could make the picture a bit better (especially the face of the mermaids) but i actually like that they are a bit uncanny.... what domyou think.

hope you like it

The Catch
Finally done. I really enjoyed this drawing. I learned loads. The idea was actually more or less to test out my surface pro. It somehow evolved from a little sketch to... well this. I hope you like it. Mugs and high quality prints are available if anyone is interested.

Well, well, well.. Obviously I haven't bin around much and suddenly: BAM more than one picture within 2 months.. must be frightening. No I am not unemployed or seriously ill. I just got a bit more time at the moment and rather use it for art than essential things like cleaning up the house befor emy parents in law come by... I still need to do that one day or an other.
Anyhow. In the meantime I changed jobs to a different location and I am much more happy and much more skimmed, but it is worth it.
Otherwise I visited Thailand last year which was a great experience and I am still living in England, even though I moved a bit outside of town which is much nicer.
Well.. not much else to say.

Ca hopefully soon

dat Maihunaa


well... not much to tell. I am from Germany but I moved to England in 2010 and moved back in 2014 when I was 8 months pregnant. I enjoy working with all different kinds of media and try to improve my skills as much as possible...
If you wanna know more about me.. just ask or visit my Webpage at *smile*

Favourite genre of music: I listen to almost everything

All my love to my husband Michi and my little Rascal Valentin Jörg.

schwanger o.o wow. etwas, was ich mir selber garnet vorstellen könnte. zum glück bleibts mir auch erspart x.x
aber NACH der schwangerschaft wirst du eh zu kaum was kommen. schlafmangel, blanke nerven, lust zu garnix. ich kenns doch aus meinem freundeskreis. da haste noch was vor dir, bis das kind dann halbwegs alt genug ist und ein wenig mehr ruhe gibt oder du dich einfach dran gewöhnt hast x'3 kann natürlich auch anders kommen. bin ich ja mal gespannt was draus wird. of du nen kleinen nervkeks kriegst oder doch ein ruhiges kind. wobei du wohl gespannter sein wirst als alle anderen x) glückwunsch dennoch. kinder sind ja nicht gerade das schlimmste, was einem passieren kann ne? :D
