Just the Place for a Snark!

 I haven't been on LJ in months. I am having so much trouble keeping up with any social networking aside from the stuff that comes up on my TweetDeck. I want to apologize to the people who I only have friended here on LJ. I just haven't had time to keep up with anything that isn't work or art. And reading LJ takes a big chunk out of my day. If you want to know what's up with me, I suggest following me on twitter @thejadeprince or keeping track of me at ShounenFight.com which is where all my energy is going these days. :) 

I'm not to the point of deleting my account or anything, it's just not something I'm checking every day. 

Blarg.

What I'm up to lately...
hnrr
jadeprince
 Yup, back to school again. And back to the oil paints. Only one studio course this semester so all you'll see of me school-wise is head portraits. Still... I think I'm getting better? A little? I still suck at taking photos of my work though. So much glare. :P They're in order of completion, done over the first two weeks of class. I got two weeks to do #3, so he's the most detailed. 

          

 

Hey F-list!

 What's popular right now? What do you think is gonna be big at the cons this summer? We're looking for ideas for new badges. :) What's got the biggest/fastest growing fandoms? Thanks! <3

As for Hetalia... we've got the axis, the allies, US/UK and Germany/Italy badges. If we were going to make another, what is the next most popular thing?

To Those who Expressed Interest in Commissioning me!

jadeprince
 THANK YOU. You guys are awesome. Also, all you wonderful kids who passed on my commission request, reposted it, etc. <3<3<3<3<3

I'll reply to each of you who want art via private message on LJ cuz screening and unscreening comments is more annoying than I thought. XD;; 

Takin' care of a mildly hungover girlfriend now but i'll be in touch this afternoon! <3

Help Send Me to Sakura-con!
hnrr
jadeprince
I've recently learned that my favorite voice actor and someone I greatly admire is going to be at Sakura-con. I wasn't planning on going to Sakura-con (and thus do not have the money for it), but Tanaka-san is only second on my list of 'anime/manga related people I must meet before I die'. (Oda Eiichiro is the first.)  I NEED TO MEET THIS WOMAN IN PERSON. SHE IS SO MY HERO OF HEROES. SO AMAZING I WISH SHE COULD BE MY EXTRA MOM. I want to give her something. Possibly the Skypeia snake I made. And my undying love. And my firstborn child. So. I need to make some money to get to Sakura-con. Thus, I am opening myself up for commissions (read, begging for them). Let me draw for you! 

My Commission Info:
Pencil sketch (1-2 char) = $10
Ink (1-2 char) = $15
Color (1-2 char) = $25
Custom fan badge (up to four char) = $15 b/w and $20 for watercolor

Add $10 for background, $5 for additional characters. If it's something other than One Piece or Reborn, then I'll need reference. :3 I will absolutely draw original characters as well. I love doing this. For all commissions you get the original art. 


I'm open for negotiation and for anything else! Also, I will draw pretty much anything, any rating. I have no shame. Just ask.

Comments are screened so you can ask me for anything as weird or perverted as you can think of. XD

THANK YOU. PASS THIS ON TO ANYONE WHO MIGHT WANT A COMMISSION TOO BIZARRE FOR ANYONE ELSE TO ACCEPT. :D AND YES, I WILL DRAW FURRIES. YES, I AM THAT DESPERATE/THAT MUCH IN LOVE WITH A WOMAN OLD ENOUGH TO BE MY MOTHER.

EDIT: oh yeah, for anyone who doesn't know me:

Baby's First Oil Painting
hnrr
jadeprince
 First four grad school classes were all charcoal. Now it seems I've moved onto the oil paints stage. I'd never painted at all before. Crafts, sure. Canvas... well, does a backdrop for our Silent Hill skit count? This is the first time I've picked up oils though. I've got mixed feelings. I haven't quite got the hang of it, and in some places I found that my brush actually will pick UP paint that was already on the canvas after it's sat for a day. Which is annoying, but shows me maybe I don't have quite as long a working time as I thought? Hm. Anyway. yes. Drapery. Whoopee.


Last Meme sketch!

 Here's the last of the five requests I took. I may do more, we'll see. :3 For now, tho, 5/5 done! Whoo! 

Disclaimer: I have not played Apollo Justice; I know nothing about these characters. I completely made up this situation. XD So don't call me out if they're out of character. 

For tea_egg ! Hope you like!
