stamps and postcards

Over the weekend I got some new stamps, so now I'm back in postcrossing!
while the international forever stamp is easy and convenient, I still like adding different stamps on to the card.  I'm not a stamp collector but I do enjoy looking at it :) so I think others will like it too.

Speaking of postcards, I'm finally done with the eeveelution theme cards!
It's being printed right now and they should be up and in my store next week.
Stay tuned!

Poliwhirl commission

Here's another commission I did today, it's Poliwhirl!
I actually have been wanting to do this for a while now, I thought about the composition for a good amount of time, and I finally get to do it! Thanks for requesting it :)
It's a 4 x 6 piece, so there are more space than a ACEO card, I filled it up pretty much with hydrangea / Ajisai flowers, which took me awhile to do! But I can't imagine doing the same piece on a smaller canvas XD 
This time I worked my way up, literally.  I know there aren't any absolute rule about painting, but usually we don't do it from the bottom...with detail.  I guess this one is an odd case?

Raikou Commission

I did this during the Anime Expo weekend, finally got some time to blog about this!
It's a Raikou, one of the legendary beasts from 2nd gen.  I wanted to try a different method on this piece, simply wanted to see if I can get softer look that blends better in the background (I was going for a cloud / smoke look).  So I used watercolor first, got some light colored layers on the back, and then after it's dried I added the colored pencil for refine and detail.

Thank you!

AX2013 was a success, thank you everyone for stopping by! it was so great to meet tons of online members in person :D  I hope you all had a wonderful time at the con! :)
Just in case you were wondering, this is a picture of the south hall (exhibit hall / artist alley).  We were close to the back...

 Oh! The gachapon machine was a huge hit, we actually ran out of buttons! 
If you've played it, THANK YOU!!
It's definitely my goal to make all the pokemon into buttons, so perhaps few months later I'll have a bunch Gen 5 and 6 pins available, gotta start drawing!  

The new notecards are up in the online shop now, go grab them while it's hot :D
