Anime Weekend Atlanta 2012

What's up kiddies! 

As promised, here's an update about my Anime Weekend Atlanta experience. 

As you guys recalled, I took part in the Artist Alley for the first time with my friend; and I must say that we had a blast! We were so nervous at first, naturally, but with the support of our friends and the warm welcome received from seasoned Artist Alley members, we got into the jump of things quickly. The main objective for my first time was to learn as much as I could about people's reaction to my work in order to see what I was doing right or wrong. 

I can say that I did do a few things wrong -- but this was corrected with the advice of an aforementioned seasoned artist--a friend of my friend -- and he helped out a Great Deal ! I was happy to find that many people found my creations eye catching -- although there were a few that didn't share that sentiment; I took note of this to to see how I can improve on my craft. Time went back very quickly which I was surprised ; I assumed it would drag by since we were stationed in one spot for up to 7-8 hours - but quite the contrary. 

All in all, it was a very fun weekend . I learned much that will be incorporated into my future projects, saw some awesome cosplay, and met some wonderful people. I'm definitely looking forward to the next Artist Alley event. 
Huge thanks to my friend who pushed me to show my art and encouraged me into doing commissions ; and thanks to everyone else who supported us during this experience. I had the opportunity to take pictures of some great cosplayers - although I wasn't able to take as many as I would've liked due to being stationary for most of the convention, nonetheless, I'm glad that I was able to take the few that I did. Enjoy!
