FFIXtober by cafe-lalonde
I finished Final Fantasy IX in the early days of October this year, so it ended up taking over most of my Inktober entries.

I feel bad for the rest of the party that I didn't draw, but clearly I've got some biases:
Zidane: 6x
Kuja: 3x
Vivi: 2x
Freya: 2x
Garnet: 2x

at least my whole final party's in there (Zidane - Dagger - Vivi - Freya)
Ten Years by cafe-lalonde
Ten Years
Around the beginning of 2015, I tried redrawing a fanart from back in very early 2005. Obviously I didn't take the time to render it out the way I did back then, but it's really fascinating to see how much my style evolved. My mom bemoans that I went a more cartoony and anime route and that my art from 2005 is a lot more realistic, but I don't think that's necessarily a critique. I finally feel like I have a STYLE and I don't feel intimidated by drawing many things that pop into my head anymore, which is what I think matters most.

Kingdom Hearts: Thinking Of You, Wherever You Are
I'm crying, I can't believe I finally got to cosplay with my very first online friend--almost 11 years ago, sorairo-days and I met on Xanga and spent a year or more bonding over our excitement for Kingdom Hearts II to come out. Now, in 2015, we finally realized our dream of cosplaying Kairi and Riku together ;u;

Hey dudes, long time no see! Sorry that I've been bad at updating my journal itself. :[

I've had a crazy few months since last time I updated. AnimeUSA was spectacular, even barely having attended the con itself! I went down with Skwinky and got to hang out a bunch with HeavenSealed and phoenixstarr44 on day 1, then did the touristy thing in DC while staying at a friend's apartment in Arlington. Took a quick pause to go be Rose on the A Bucket Full of Homestuck: Act II panel, which you can watch below! It was a con experience I never thought I'd get to have, I'm so grateful to have been up there with such a talented cast. ;A;

Promstuck and the Christmas season all went really well too! My brain is sort of fuzzy on all of it because I was actively job-searching and appealing some unemployment stuff in court. Had a bajillion interviews in the first few weeks of the year, then got a lovely break to go to Katsucon with all my besties. Cosplayed from Persona 4, Homestuck, Magic Knights Rayearth, and Ace Attorney, and spent a lot of my time as a photographer, which was nice!!

SO I FINALLY HAVE A JOB. After 8 months, 300+ applications, 13-14 dead-end interviews, etc, I'm a graphic designer and medical illustrator at a new company that I absolutely love. ;w;

More after the next few weekends are over! YAY SPRING
