Add me if you want to see random pictures from cons and stuff, I'm darkflame75!
Tomorrow (hopefully) I'll be heading off to Everfree Northwest, hopefully vending will go well and I'll raise money for rent so my plans to move can continue.

I've got Table 45 in the vendor hall, look forward to meeting lots of people!
Vendor Hall Table Assignment by DarkFlame75


So after Everfree Northwest, hopefully things will be happening quickly. The plan is, while in Seattle for EFNW, to look at apartments and hopefully sign a lease. This could mean moving as early as mid-June. Either way, unless something goes horribly wrong the move should happen by early July. Of course, if the move happens soon after EFNW, I'll be busy for a while yet. That's several weeks in a row, finals, convention, then moving. So I've been a bit "gone" again, but for very good reasons. Once I get settled into my new place, I'll be depending on commissions/patreon/conventions to support me, so I'll get hard at work on them.
At this point, the only thing that could ruin these plans is if EFNW sales go horribly or if the landlord won't accept my nontraditional form of income or something like that. Crossing my fingers.

This is a traditional painting for my painting class, my last project. The main medium is gouache paints, but I used some colored pencils for fine details at the very end. The colored pencils are mostly only in the shapes in the sails, the lines on the ship, and the lights on the planet. I'm not sure exactly what the paper is, it's just some watercolor paper of which my teacher has a surplus lying around since he's an oil painter and not a watercolor painter. The size is roughly 8.5x14, or Legal size. I actually didn't plan that, it just sort of happened. 

Unfortunately the only scanner I have available can only scan in compressed formats, so zooming in closely to the darker areas loses detail quickly. The lighter spots of paint still show quite well though.

This painting was a gift/trade thing for a friend at school who gave me the paints I've been using all semester, he asked only for me to paint him a space ship in return.
Thankfully, since gouache is usually painted on paper it can be easily scanned and preserved digitally.

The ship design was loosely inspired by Treasure Planet, I loved that movie as a kid, I still think it's pretty great.
