CherBear's Thoughts: April + May 2017

Hello everyone - 

I had planned to write out my thoughts for this month yesterday; I'm just not sure where my time went with that. Either way; guess it makes today a double post which is fine. Better to do this sooner than completely forget for this month.

-----

So not much to say in terms of game wise; still in the same rotation of games but now also playing Touch ironically enough. It almost felt like it was a forced moment but either way; there's some cute gaming moments in there but past that I haven't played frequently, its just a different pace to all the other games I had been playing.

-----

As for my laptop, my Alienware returned & I don't mind. It's good & had been puttering around on there for a bit. Fixing settings & will attempt to livestream on there some time to see how it goes. 

Other than that; things have gotten slow but I've also been attempting to be semi-productive w/ working on artwork, commissions and such too since it looks like my plans for this month will definitely slow down.

-----

Ongoing steps forward artistic wise. I have continued to post videos on my youtube channel: www.youtube.com/channel/UCSkM6… . Still gotta edit when I can while livestream when I do. 

Here's some other videos posted:






I had also been posting more artwork to be queued when I don't look at my deviantART. I in theory have things posted until July - I still have more to post up as usual. Rest assured you'll continue to see more stuff from me throughout this year. As long as I keep at it [encouragement is always a plus ;) lol].

I continue to attempt to play catch up on every other social outlet fairly soon but give it time - if I remember to haha ~ cuz I'm not sure where my time is at. :(.

-----

Either way I feel fortunate for now but always feel like I can be doing more or wanting to do so much more. So I continue to venture forward into 2017 optimistic.

Thank you for listening to a lil art bear's rant.

CherBear's Thoughts: March + April 2017

Hello everyone - 

  Hopefully it hasn't been too long since my last rant. I think when things start to slow down; I manage to find a groove but I'm not sure how long this lull will last BUT I am trying to get a few things done just in case - worse case scenario; I end up being busy for the next year or not. Either way - plenty to discuss perhaps.

-----

So I will save the lengthy stuff for last which is plenty of art related stuff & start with gaming first. Other than my hiatus on most of my games. I had posted up to date which games I'm currently active on - on a mmo scale; which is Love Dance Mobile & Audition. In-between all of that, my lil bit of indulgence so to speak has been Yandere Simulator. Granted it is still in a debug build phase, it's been a fun lil game to putter around & try.

- Yandere Simulator: Why? Why not? I had been seeing lil youtube videos of other people's gameplay & I admit, I was a bit intrigued. Finally; after awhile I managed to download and try the game. So far I've liked it & tried some of the things I had seen online and it been enjoyable.

- Love Dance: Recently I had gotten back into the game after my initial introduction by Oddbrother ; it has been proven fairly interesting because since its a mobile game - its something more easily accessible on my day to day on the go.

- Audition Online [Redbana]: Oh goodness, its technically coming on 8 years for Redbana & a total of 10yrs [11yrs including beta] for the game on the North America server overall. I'd like to do something [maybe finally collab with Shoo if we can squeeze in the time] for it but I can't make definite promises this early on.

-----

Life ongoing; my poor Alienware laptop had finally kaput. I had sent it to a friend sometime in March to look into what was wrong & he told me ultimately in the end the motherboard died. So I gave permission to get it to functional but least to say I'm definitely appreciative [and owe him so much]. Why when I have a current laptop [and pretty much has better specs?] ... one word, sentimentality that I've had for it for 9yrs. What do I have purpose wise for it after all the repairs? A back up to my current laptop just in case...cuz knowing my luck.

Past that; I've been keeping busy, going out, trying out new recipes & been trying to plot out my plans properly. After my inner realization that I'm all over the place; not good - I gotta try to focus. I also am looking to try to find stable work after July realistically. So here's hoping. Other than that, I had sold my old truck finally; got it working & proof that its working so it was sold for a decent reasonable price. There's been birthdays, hanging out with family & friends...whew, as I said. I feel like I've been pulled around everywhere.

-----

As you have noticed; I've been taking steps forward somewhere artistic wise. I have set up my youtube channel: www.youtube.com/channel/UCSkM6… & had posted my first video. I still have plenty uploaded that I'm planning to post once a week but it doesn't mean I shouldn't be contiuing with video editing & uploading past livestreams - so no worries; its kinda a experiment to see where that goes.

I look to fulfill this 'creator' itch by attempting to finish some designs to make & order all before uhm realistically in July. I think that's reasonable but we'll see.

I had been posting more artwork to be queued when I don't look at my deviantART. I in theory have things posted until June - I still have more to post up [ a lot of artwork done for Pacific PonyCon 2017 ] but apparently you can post at most 90 days out from the current day [ thanks uh core membership? ]. Rest assured you'll continue to see more stuff from me throughout this year. As long as I keep at it [encouragement helps ;) lol].

I also have been dabbling in sending some personal artwork out to friends & furthering out my options long term wise.

I look to catch every other social outlet fairly soon but give it time - if I remember to haha.

Will I be busy? I can't faithfully answer that until May. 

So...you can probably guess I do have plenty on my mind.

-----

Either way I feel fortunate for now but always feel like I can be doing more or wanting to do so much more. So I continue to venture forward into 2017 optimistic.

Thank you for listening to a lil art bear's rant. You may hear from me again hopefully by the end of this month.

CherBear's Thoughts: February + March 2017

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 5, 2017, 8:35 AM

So new month; new thoughts ahoy.

General thoughts: I think finally I'm starting to slow down a bit but its good to not feel so busy at times. I've refocused on working on mainly catching up on a lot of things since I had put off everything since July of 2016. Granted I did self indulge with working on things I wanted to do or unplugging by playing video games - its mainly because after larger art projects & deadlines I just wanted something to do that didn't feel like a hard obligation. Granted; I do have other commissions that I am planning to work on - I've been doing them in small stints because I gotten a peculiar request to get a speed video of the progress so it lead me to experiment to a lil bit of video editing getting the hang of it but looking back at my prior livestreams ... as a typical artist I kinda cringed on the whole 'what was I thinking' at past artwork.

The few responses I did get has implied maybe I should be posting them on youtube of my past livestream sessions. I'll get into that a lil later though.

Artistic goals: So as I was mentioning earlier. I've been working on video editing of my past livestream sessions. I've started to upload them on youtube but everything has been kept private for now w/ the exception of sharing a video or two w/ a cpl of collaborators. If I end up doing enough edit sessions I may start releasing them on a weekly basis but that's in the future.

Other than livestream & video editing, I've been contemplating several things. Until I get my remaining commissions finished I'll be re-doing my commission prices. They've been re-written but until I finish what's on my current plate - I won't do anything drastic but quoting a familiar line "change its a coming".

My recent kick & obsession is I've been getting more & more of my artwork to become a bit more um...tangible. I had gotten art made for a daki pillow cover & that became a reality [yes that's on my bed]. I had recently shown it January & I had gotten more offers after the initial reveal of it. It led me to planning a list of what else I want made not only for myself but also consider putting out anything else - which leads to why I had been wanting to change my commission prices to include such uh merchandise? I'll be sure to take pictures of the daki cover, sometime along with my recent purchase - a hoodie w/ my designs on it. It turned out alright I think. As I had mentioned, my list, I wanna design & make 2 more daki pillow covers for my pillows, a phone case for my phone [its been long due] & a skin for something else. I'm attempting to space it out so it'll be a gradual reveal overtime. Granted I had already seen lil some of my other creations materialize [apron, a uh felt flag?, plushies & posters] these are strangely fascinating & satisfying.

Lastly, I've been contemplating finally getting my patreon account fully up - I had held that account for a bit but hadn't ended up putting anything else up mainly because I hadn't really thought of where to progress from there. I'd like to look into some other ppl's patreons & do some further research before I take a step forward with that.

In conclusion...It's been what's been lingering within my head.

I've slowly started scraping the surface of catching up on social media so hopefully you'll get to see more stuff on here. They've been on other parts of my social media [ie. instagram & twitter] & it's been a collective of 8-9 months which why I may have pulled back on my random & unannounced livestreams. I maxed out the amount I can queue on some places [ie. tumblr (300 posts) & deviantART (90 days worth of posts)]  but will be on other parts of my social media overtime. 

So hopefully it'll be a progressive move forward & continuing to show what I can do. Not to mention, keeping an optimistic view of this year.

More thoughts through January & into February --

Realization: I find myself bouncing all over the place due to the creativity & thoughts, thinking its a good idea & the intention is there but the follow through is always short. So I'm gonna attempt to focus & set out what I do intend to do this year & enough of this "Oh I'd like to do this..." & just do it.

Its been quiet since all the madness of Pacific PonyCon 2017; which is good cuz then I can focus on the commissions finally, I have 4 so I won't take on new ones quite yet until I finish. After I finish them; I do plan to do fix my commission pricing slightly & show the other styles I'm capable of but apparently I do not show or do not have examples - I wanna show the potential flexibility I do have even though my highlights are what is currently seen. Not to mention I want to add actual specifics because what I had been doing the past 3 years.

What am I attempting to focus on? Designs for t-shirts is one. Offering other alternative purchases of product. Also, a youtube channel that may or may not focus on just my livestream sessions but gaming though honestly I haven't really gamed much outside of Audition atm & the others are Pokemon Go & Pokemon Sun / Moon - but I have taken the first step & began the fun process of learning video editing. I'm contemplating structuring my Patreon account finally too. Not to mention; last but not least. Catch up on all the wonderful artwork on all social media branches I had produced but not posted due to Pacific PonyCon 2017.

Either way; realistically - I am looking for work too; just I know that route usually means my artwork takes a backseat ... it might not be the case the second go around but y'never know. I just know that's what I had observed during the brief stint of working a few years ago.

Anyways - I am being optimistic into 2017 & continuing to progress forward; I'm forever grateful to those who've shown their love & support this far & into the future because without that, I really would question why I've done this so long. Granted...I've given those reasons before its always nice to hear it every now & then...its silly but its the lil things like that which fuels the fire & gives one's self drive to continue.

Valentine's Day is coming up! I hope to chat a lil more 'bout my thoughts after that! Until next time ~ take care!

CherBear's Thoughts: 2016, 2017 + PPC2017

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 10, 2017, 5:43 AM

First off: I want to wish everyone a late Happy Holidays & Happy 2017 New Year. I have plenty to cover but I had been extremely busy, which can be seen good or bad depending on who you are.

 Last half of 2016: Well considering my LAST journal entry was San Diego Comic Con 2016, rest assured I had been busy but also been busy with artwork too. August was a good month, my birthday month was satisfying ( thank you btw for all the birthday wishes ), October; during Halloween was fun as usual, November; was a bit of juggling around on where to spend Thanksgiving & December; was some interesting coordination with Christmas & New Year. Art wise - I had always been busy working on something, whether it was for Pacific PonyCon or needing a break to draw something else that didn't need a deadline. Mostly, I had been attempting to do in-game livestream of my artwork which turned out to be super fun. You'll eventually see the madness of random artwork along w/ Pacific PonyCon artwork since the event has passed.

New Year 2017: So a question into the New Year, other than totally having a Animal Crossing New Leaf moment, playing Pokemon Sun / Moon & on occasion Audition Online Redbana - what are my goals for this year. Strangely, it was to learn something new albeit; I can always learn some new strange fact on a random whim but I mean a new technique, revisit animation, something along those lines, continue to thrive as a artist. 

Pacific PonyCon 2017: Now the last part I would love to discuss. Thankfully this year, I fell more behind the scenes which I did not mind. It was held over at the Wyndham San Diego Bayside. I won't completely get into everything but overall, it felt very warm, folks had a lot of fun & everyone enjoyed the event from what I can tell. All the artwork deadlines were met right up to the day of the convention & managed to squeeze artwork to be featured as a banner for Equestria Daily. I was able to catch a couple of events; not to mention I made a exclusive poster print donated to the charity auction which was held on the 3rd day & saw our honored community guests, voice actors and a lot of the attendees. After all that was said & done, the positive feedback from social media outlets & volunteers looking exhausted - I think ultimately in the end it was worth it. Will there be another year? I guess we will have to wait & see.

CherBear's Thoughts: San Diego Comic Con 2016!

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 15, 2016, 8:25 PM

San Diego Comic Con 2016 quickly approaches! 

I know - I simply passed up Anime Expo 2016 but from what I hear, depending on who you hear it from & where they were coming from, overall, 100,000  unique attendees? Good for them.


San Diego Comic Con has been a Christmas in July thing not only for me, but for friends & family. I really look forward to it. With the convention contract extending to 2018, I look forward to see where this goes considering I've been going since well..forever haha! I've seen it transform into an event that spills out into Downtown San Diego & its something you're either going to have to have fun & enjoy the scene or stay clear of if you're not big into large crowds. 


So that's where all the silence has been, I've either been busy wrapping up projects & assigning projects for another convention. 


Then I gotta make sure my place is ready for family who'll be crashing with me during the convention.


Taking some of today & into tomorrow to just prep some artwork I had worked on to be posted during my week hiatus. While enviously watching other folks play Pokemon Go.


Don't worry, I haven't completely surrendered to the overwhelming hype...yet, I'll see after the con since I really need to get in gear with other things...curse you priorities.


As for some other things, I have been drawing but on & off on my sketchbook. Ended up writing too & a good friend ended up sending me some awesome stuff while he ends up moving to start a new life. I wish him nothing but the best & hope that this life change doesn't break the contact.


I'll try to document my day to day at San Diego Comic Con though, so by all means. Be sure to follow my twitter [ @LilCherBear ] & Instagram [ lilcherbear ] to see what I manage to see & try to catch as much of the scene not only within the convention but outside the convention too.

I'll wrap up the month with thoughts & hopefully squeeze more drawing in. Its something about the convention scene that inspires me to be creative.


But for now - I am alive! And look out, there's a pikachu right behind you.

CherBear's Thoughts: Nearly a Decade...

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 21, 2016, 4:53 PM

Commissions



Today fulfills thoughts about April

Undoubtedly, I have been busy with various projects but today I finished as I am about a day away from headings up to BABS Con this weekend [which I'll talk about when I get back on Monday, Tuesday at the latest.]. I take the time to recognize today as thoughts over a game ... yes a game. Weird? Petty? Strange? Well ... keep reading if you are interested on why.

What game do I speak of? Audition Online Dance Battle - Redbana, yeah that game.

A little backstory, I started playing since Nexon October 2007, today marks the start of the game on Redbana. Now, you must ask why over a game that isn't nearly impressive graphically & game play compared to all the current games out there, whether its on a console, PC, Steam, w/e. Frankly, I often get the vibe from my cohort in crime Milotic, [a guy who I met through this game] why I bother when the game by the company had been so poorly managed & potential of it growing was wasted. Why draw anything...why recognize anything...in recognition of a game that even the community within had crying out for the day when the game finally closes.

It's simple really, its out of love for the game, not the company. Like other games such as World of Warcraft where the community, had celebrated finding their significant other & people they end up refer to as 'friends' even when they're miles apart. This game, is no different. I spoke to some people from Audition that I managed to keep in touch, I sincerely asked, "Who have you kept in touch with after a decade since playing this game?" Some have said they kept in touch w/ a lot of them, some have said only one other. You then realize after talking about that question w/ them & the memories you guys had shared [...whether they're good or bad...] that whatever degree it is, you guys have still been friends all this time. 

Now, whether you cherish the idea of friendships or not is completely up to your preference. 

For me, I think I have found myself appreciating the fortunate situation only because the feeling of being alone is very plausible...unless you're all for it...its a lil sad w/ all the bad things that go on in the world today.

So I celebrate today; I reminisce the memories from it, its for the love of the game & more importantly the friendships of people I didn't expect to have - I still have today. And even though we don't constantly talk 24/7 or see each other, cuz lets be honest - life can get in the way...its as easy as saying hello & catching up in-between days, weeks, months & years then going back to doing your own thing but know that there will be a next time where you can do it all over again.

If this is silly, well hopefully you didn't read it to the end. Now if you didn't & feel the same way in a similar situation, that's great & hopefully you reached out to say hello to a friend cuz you never know - you might have just brighten their day when everything in the world for them had somehow went wrong.

CherBear's Thoughts: End of March

Greetings everyone! Hope folks had safe, good, happy & everything type of holidays that past since my last journal post. It's been a while. Granted I've been posting & not posting on & off, getting a cold & next thing I know...its April?!

Plans: Regardless - it should start picking up w/ more artwork w/ Pacific PonyCon granted I also have a commission to work on too. Either way, I have started getting back into my art groove. Not to mention I am fueling my own fire to wanting to start more personal projects I always say I plan to do.

Conventions: I missed Hanadoki unfortunately, WonderCon too & I think that's it. BABS is coming up, I may or may not go. Also, EFNW too but that's highly unlikely.

Either way...

That's what's been happening since my last journal entry. Keeping it short & sweet & hopefully will be able to post more up since I do feel better.

Pacific PonyCon 2016! by PacificPonyCon


It's been a while, I know since I wrote anything, I've been extremely busy & for good reason too. But this isn't about that, we're here to talk 'bout Pacific PonyCon 2016 that was held here in San Diego, CA Jan 8th-10th.

First off, I am exhausted but its a good kind of tired considering what I went through. This is technically my first pony 'themed' con & the reason I say its a good kind of tired is due to the fact I heard & spoke to folks that went had said they had a good time. As an off note: I was able to see both sides of the coin per say.

Day 0 - Set up day was pretty standard, as many of you may or may not know, the venue was held over at the lovely Kona Kai Resort & Marina. It's a lovely place to stay & albeit a small capacity I think made the best of it to make it fun overall for every attendee. Things were able to be set up smoothly & ready to go for the next 3 days. 

Day 1 - As it started to roll around, I admit I didn't realize I would be having a morning routine going for the next 3 days. Not that I didn't mind. Other than the early morning prep chat & waiting to throw in my contribution into the con I was able to walk around & check out the whole hotel. Saw where the vendor hall was, the CCG room, the video game room & KFA room. No worries, I was able to check out the panels...not like I didn't have a choice...heehee. Rest assured I did get to see what was to come for the next couple of days. It was nice to sit on some community guest panels [got to introduce myself to Keyframe] & sat in on the VA panel w/ Andrea Libman, Peter New & Rena Anakwe. My day did end late but can't stop there, there's still 2 more days to go.

Day 2 - Well...spoiler alert, I had known I was going to be apart of a how to panel featuring SoCal artist & well, yeah...I ended up being on there. Oh, but before I go on, the morning routine started as usual, got to wander around the convention before having to go to well yes, my panel. Albeit, it was a small turn out, I guess it couldn't have been helped considering we were stacked against 3 stronger panels but I look at this as the bright side of practicing public speaking. I think all 4 of us were nervous 'bout talking & wasn't even sure how to talk out into a room. Who was I with? Well, Star Sketcher, BrownWolf & Stephen Luque. Either way it was a learning experience [for me it was fun too] & I am better prepared for next year. The rest of my day evened out to standing in on a few more community guest panels & the VA panel once again. I could tell the kids were having a good time & were happy to ask the VAs their questions. Was able to say hi to Eile Monty [which btw I think it was neat to have this small venue, she randomly showed up here & there] & shook hands w/ Nowacking. During later into the evening, I think I was able to say hi to Tony Fleece [kinda surreal] & finally got something to eat for dinner. The day ended late & as much as I wanted to party, I had to rest up early because I had a long early day tomorrow for me. 

Day 3 - Final days always seem to be one of those, "I can't believe its almost over." kind of feeling. The morning started really early because I had to prep pack then take care of some important things before starting to sit in on all the panels. Strangely a bit cold but it was fun to see the panels. Charity Auction was always fun, the community guests had more panels [said hi to ToonKritic] & finally feedback & closing ceremony. Once after all things were said & done, we cleaned up, went to our own after party & reflected on the con.

Overall, I won't lie, there was so much I didn't begin to mention that happened. There was a beach party, 3 wendigos pinata breakings the past 3 days, lots of kids were there having fun at the KFA room, The Party Cannon on Day 2, Kids Scavenger hunt, other community guests I had seen, I could go on - but as I said early on - it was a good kind of tired knowing & seeing that folks had a good time this weekend. I do look forward to the next Pacific PonyCon!

CherBear's Thoughts: A surreal moment

First off, by all means - check out this video:



Yes, this is for Pacific PonyCon that'll be held in San Diego, CA January 8-10,2016. I know, I rarely don't push to promote...or maybe I do & I don't realize it, its really just neat to see this animation I think.

It is one of those moments where you know a creation you made & another creation you helped develop & create come to life like that & it being an animation promotion? Even better! Yes, I do mean MissionBelle & SilverStrand the OCs of Pacific PonyCon. 

As for the rest of my wandering thoughts, I am really happy to see how another commission I did for someone else turned out & I really hope to do more commissions in the future.

Other than thank you for the birthday wishes, the Super Blood Moon eclipse that recently happened, a bunch of meet ups I went to, being generally exhausted from the warm weather, believe it or not...I am looking forward to Halloween...the end of the year quickly approaching & what not, still gonna keep working at it in one capacity or another. 

Anyways, that is all folks! 'Til next time, keep creating!

Commissions Price Guide

[[ Taken from prior commission guide: Commission Guideline as of 04.29.2013 ]]

 

Hello everyone! This guide is used for my personal reference & for inquiries for all interested folks who wish to commission from me.

Why a commission price guide? – The reason behind this guide as a personal reference has been a long time coming. Due to folks who have requested in the past before & not being prepared, I finally have a price guide line down not only for my preference but also be prepared to discuss any & all inquiries someone may ask later down the line. After-all folks who have asked & paid in some way, shape, or form in the past like & support my artwork have left me humbled & grateful, for that sentiment, I am very thankful.

 

FAQs:

                These are my personal preferences that may answer any inquiries of how I prefer to handle things in terms of commission work.

 

    1.       Interested, send me a note or msg on this social media account [all accts are at least checked once a day] or a direct e-mail @ lilcherbear@gmail.com . Please make sure the title of the e-mail/note/message indicates you wish to commission me.

    2.       All drawings specifications will be asked – so there will be back & forth e-mails asking a lot of questions about your commission specifications, after-all they are all done the way you want them to be done ~ so negotiations may be long.

    3.       Multiple artworks can be requested.

    4.       Final works are done & signed off by me. Client commissions will be their property; in return, both parties are in agreement all client requested commissions will be used as part of my personal art portfolio.

    5.       All commissions are scanned or digital & sent via e-mail [or social media site] & eventually showcased as examples of my artwork on social media sites. All original artwork will be kept with me. Discussions of this option may change on a case by case basis.

    6.       Clients may request for their commissions to be withheld from being showcased on any of my social medias – just please make sure to address this if you wish to withheld your commission [& a reason why].

    7.       All digital commissions have the following:

    a.       All WIP work is done on a smaller DPI/Res scale.

    b.       All final work DPI/Res scale is set to be made as a print.

    8.       Payment goes as follows: half before WIP [this will include line art progress] – 2nd half just before completion.

    9.       Payments are all done through paypal only so there will be a paypal fee for each transaction.

    10.    Negotiation from what is stated from the guideline is always possible as long as its reasonable.

    11.    All prices may change during time. (Such as special price runs & spots)

    12.    Artwork commission requests will be done in the order as I see fit deemed important & need to be done a.s.a.p. (Paid Commission always done before Point Commissions)

    13.    Commission may be subjected to delay due to real life reasons.

    14.    I have every right to change the FAQs as needed.

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
♥ - Roughly 7 years; technically a lil longer than that considering I do have an older account that I'm barely/rarely active on.

2. What does your username mean?
♥ - It is technically a nickname given to me by someone that kinda basically stuck with me for awhile, it only became more apparent when I used it as an ign for in-game names & I guess a 'persona' flourished from it.

3. Describe yourself in three words.
♥ - Thoughtful, Observant & Cheerful

4. Are you left or right handed?
♥ - Right.

5. What was your first deviation?
♥ - Let's see if I can find it...ah here it is: Audi: CherBear + Meteor

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
♥ - It really does depend on my mood strangely enough.

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
♥ - Painting, definitely painting.

8. What was your first favourite?
♥ - Huh, how funny it would technically be this: Audi Family

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
♥ - I'm a sucker for cute things...won't lie.

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
♥ - I do have favorites but strangely they do not have a deviantART site that I'm aware of.

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
♥ - No one really; if I meet them - that would be neat, if not it really isn't a big deal. I'm not the type to fan girl over anyone online famous or not.

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
♥ - Numerous really; here & on other sites - they've left me messages, asked questions & have told me how I had impacted them in one form or another artistic wise & that's honestly quite flattering & humbling all in the same.

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
♥ - Preferably a pencil & sketchbook.

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
♥ - Anywhere that strikes inspiration because it can literally come from anywhere.

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
♥ - Let's see...that's a good question. I guess one out of many that could stand out was when I posted up my fan art crossover & tweeted to Tara Strong & she retweeted that to her followers...that was something.

Happy 15th Birthday deviantART ~ may you have more years to come! #DeviantArtistQuestionnaire

CherBear's Thoughts: July Wrap Up

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 31, 2015, 4:35 PM

Tomorrow is August & its amazing how we're nearing the end of the year...

I know...I know...but c'mon have you not come across your social media feeds of countdowns for Halloween? Christmas? Next thing you know New Year's will be the next thing I talk about.

Anyways, I think I've successfully recovered over earlier this month. My convention will be quiet until January - granted I will still be busy in one form or another but that's what I'm essentially looking at.

Granted; on my end, its been rather muggy & humid. Familiar weather on my end but hasn't been made present for a few years so its just a matter of adjusting...& plenty of complaining.

So what's in the horizon? Well let's see.

More little artwork pieces for Pacific PonyCon [ pacificponycon.com/ + @ pacific_ponycon *twitter* ] here in San Diego, CA from now until January.

Looking for work once again in some capacity since my previous line up of work fell through. Don't get me wrong! I have no regrets there - glad to know they're doing a lot better.

More individual works / fan art pieces / etc. in the meantime.

Gaming? Probably...been peeking around Audition Online, gotta see what this fuss over the new patch on WoW is & start working on that before this supposed rumored expansion they're announcing, try out maybe World of Warships?...the list goes on, for now - I will see ya'll on Wondertrade in ORAS ^_~ <3

Afterall, the intention is there just at the moment - the weather has been canceling out my renewed inspirational drive to create more after San Diego Comic Con.

Besides, this year has been alright; hasn't been spectacular - but at the same time - its not as bad as other years...I'd like to think I'm slowly progressing forward in that capacity.

Also, some silly mundane things as prepping my DVR for fall shows. Been enjoying some such such as We Bare Bears.

But other than that I've been focusing on myself or my family to that capacity.

We'll see how August will treat me as I slowly inch closer towards 2016.

CherBear's Thoughts - SDCC2015 Day 4

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 13, 2015, 4:17 AM


My Profile PageMy GalleryMy Journal

Its a bittersweet moment, after the complaining of how exhausted I am, wondering if SDCC was over & just overall being 'con tired' it is finally over.

I'm not sure why but it always tends to happen, near the end on Sundays are very lazy moments. Got there fairly late to the convention only to put in my remaining time. In the meantime I was able to meet up w/ old friends & catch up. Got to watch some new & old anime then head out to another meet up. The night ended up w/ a lil celebration before just finally getting some rest.

Was able to actually score an exclusive & get extras in hopes of a return in investment but we'll see how that'll go. Past that it was nice for me & the group I had been with for the past 4 days to watch the convention pack up, I thanked them & hope to work w/ them again next year.

As for my final thoughts: I think this year was different like every other year, it wasn't too bad & I think the layout & lines were a bit more orderly. The new location where I've been putting time in I think was a lil more successful this year & hope that our group will remain for the following 2016.

My cousin, who I was able to get him in, asked if he would do this all again & he said yes. With that, here's hoping we get to return for another year w/ SDCC changing their registration policies.

So even though the convention is over & I think essentially my con season too, I would chalk this to another successful year. Time to go back into hibernation!

CherBear's Thoughts - Day 3: Masquerade Madness

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 12, 2015, 9:53 AM


My Profile PageMy GalleryMy Journal
Commissions

Woke up after passing out, technically day 4 has started but I wanted to briefly sum up about Day 3.

Even though Day 3 is usually my relaxed Day due to sitting around in line for Masquerade Ball later in the evening; didn't really change any facts of what I had to do that day. Guess there's truth in the idea of each year tends to be a little different from the last & this time isn't any different.

With an early start off w/ me & an extended family of sorts that gather in a line for Ballroom 20 Masquerade Ball happens about as early as 6am. Line management seemed to be attempting to be as strict as usual but at the same time - things were rather orderly. Picking up for tickets were fairly early too, 12:00? Well it isn't too bad considering that I did have to put in my time to give back to the con in an hour...we ironically only needed about 40 tickets for our group this time...heh.

I didn't see much of the floor but more of the upstairs for once, I got to wander around the sails pavillion on my way to my 1 priority.

Granted I know there were other things going on, I did manage to go to the Person of Interest panel a lil later that afternoon. As much as I was on the fence 'bout going [like most panels because I can look for it online in a few weeks] I'm glad I went. Seeing the cast there & being surprised that it'll only be 13 episodes this time around as a mid-season series. I guess when your ratings starts to be in question; things do tend to happen.

We had our pizza run later into the evening, picked up & delivered to our line spot before going into the main event: Masquerade Ball.

Now I have to admit; I admire all the time, effort & imaginative creativity cosplayers go through to perform & w/ 33 entries, it wasn't too bad.

After the showcase; a lil live entertainment from Saber's Guild was pretty good & some shorts & clips afterwards before announcing the winners that night.

It was a good night w/ friends, family, new, extended & old into the mix. With that being said, time to get ready for the last day.

CherBear's Thoughts - SDCC2015 Day 2

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 11, 2015, 1:10 AM


My Profile PageMy GalleryMy Journal
Commissions

Into the wee morning hours once again, I took a brief nap once I got home, mainly because I was trying to unplug myself so to speak from another day - it worked but eventually I should go to sleep for another day is approaching.

So what to discuss about...oh yes...venturing outside the Con; no I know I preached it but some of ya'll wonder do I really do it? Well I did, I managed to check out into the Downtown Gaslamp area for San Diego & I do stand by my statement. The interactive zone over at Petco Park was cute this year tho I have heard it was more lively last year w/ what was taking over the area & its fine, every year is different. Gaslamp Downtown was just another site within itself that just makes things rather different & unique. To see Downtown San Diego especially within the Gaslamp area transform for these events is something. In short of my adventure of taking in the sites & sounds, some free swag, some free snacks & a lot of relaxing. I also made my way over to the Marriot & Hyatt to see how things were as well. Ppl still went & there was plenty to do as I say once again...y'really don't need badges. Observing, I can safely guess the ratio of badge to non-badge folks wandering around is respectably 1:3.

Submitting my time to give back & seeing all the announcements; Star Wars, MLP: FiM & other sorts were pretty cool. Also, managed to go to the Kung Fury panel & as funny & great as that had been, the message was pretty sound - pursue your dreams & risk everything.

Some folks have been voicing how its not the same or its lost its luster, others wonder why ppl go there when they themselves aren't into the comic pop culture. As, as I would like to say, a veteran going for over 10+ years can understand the reasonings why ppl have been voicing their opinion. I can only humbly speculate as I think over these thought provoking voices stating their opinions. Why have I been going? Why have others flocked here if they are completely obvious to the pop culture that SDCC is providing to the masses?

I have to agree to one sentiment; its not that one con is better than the other, it is about friends going w/ friends & w/ me hanging out w/ good company for about 10+ has helped. My purpose has changed within the 10+ as an attendee, a good part of it has become apart of the volunteering, its a different insight, greater appreciation of how things are run in a convention, more friends [to hug fellow volunteers that y'work w/ in the same department is nice...granted its not everyday friends it is like I guess the best way to put it, long time friends coming together for 5 days] & the opportunity to show other friends the SDCC experience because they've never been or help folks who couldn't score tickets to come.

As for that anamoly, I think w/ ppl hyping how SDCC is; it became a curiousity factor. They may not be initially pop culture fans at first but after being there, some either become hooked or are satisified & feel there's no reason to go again...I wish the latter was more common but I think my first hunch is a more accurate statement. Afterall; especially w/ ppl I work with in volunteer staffing & even my long time local friends - it became a 'you're going to what con again?' to 'OMG you're going to Comic-Con, can you get me tickets?!' As much as ppl think this has long stopped being a convention 'bout comics...it is ironically a common theme among the con. It has a lil bit of something for everyone but at the same time its that lil bit of something in all reality became a large blob. Yes, from the video games to the movies & other promotional stints were inspired by something comic book based & if it wasn't; it had become its own comic within the next few years.

With Saturday being day 3. I am fairly ready...thanks for following me on twitter / instagram [ @ lilcherbear ] ; I'll hopefully have more pictures but w/ my plans to be fairly relaxed for the big ol' Masquerade Ball, we shall see. For now ~ nap time!

CherBear's Thoughts - SDCC2015 Day 1

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 10, 2015, 1:27 AM


My Profile PageMy GalleryMy Journal

Into the wee hours of the morning, I should be resting with it being technically day 2 but my days are long & I get home fairly late.

Now how did Day 1 officially go...

Well from what I can tell, a lot of exclusive scenes had come out for various shows, a lot of celebs made their appearences, nerd girls with boyband crushes got their hugs & closures & plenty of more with cosplayers making their way out in masses...did I mention a symphony at the park featuring Pokemon music?

I did wanna wander the floor more & have a lil more fun; ironically my priorities weren't any panels, if I did make it to one...it was rather on a spurr of the moment.

Everything I think was worthwhile, Doctor Who's exclusive clip, Bill Murray rockin' out like a rockstar, exclusive premire showing of Bare Bears on top of a Masquerade Ball-esque type panel w/ the creator of Bare Bears & voice actors Finn & Marceline & yes, much more.

I don't think I had heard anything bad happen & it was another day of things going smoothly...I may be wrong though considering I'm only 1 of 130,000 in the convention & 1 of 160,000+ within Downtown, San Diego.

One of the things that did perk my interest, down in Downtown, San Diego there is a Snoopy inflatable house & if you go in there, there's a lil slide/play area & a pen where you can play with...yes, puppies. They're only around for so long during the day so it is definitely if you wanna play with puppies over in Downtown, San Diego, that's one place. Other events I've heard is a last chance to reserve $25 opportunities for a warehouse Zombie Survival Paintball ordeal. There's plenty of more to list, the Adult Swim Carnival, the Assassin's Creed place & well I can go on & on, on top of Conan filming this week.

I submitted 4hrs of my day to give back to the convention & ensure things went smoothly, thankfully being back within the convention - it was nice; it felt like more ppl were wandering in to check things out but I do miss the lil office room where our group had set up snacks & food to get us by throughout the days of this convention...

Hopefully enjoyed the lil tweets & instagram pics being posted [ @ lilcherbear (for both twitter & instagram) ]. Hopefully will take pics of cosplayers but for now, just random shots around within the convention. Take care folks!

CherBear's Thoughts - SDCC2015 Preview Night

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 9, 2015, 2:24 AM

Evening folks. It is 'bout 2am & I will attempt to keep it short & sweet.

Preview Night - strangely enjoyable regardless of the lack of presence from Marvel & Paramount. Does this phase me? Not so much. 

Everything feels a bit more organized at least the chaos wasn't as apparent from what I can tell. Folks seems very wide eyed & happy to be here considering it is Preview Night.

...did I mention I sat next to a woman who dropped $2.6k on merchandise...on PREVIEW NIGHT?

While I was walkin' 'round with company...I have to admit though, even though I've been to other conventions - whether this is being a lil bias or not ... there's a bit of a different vibe here that I've always enjoyed regardless.

Anyways, I did manage to post stuff up on instagram [so if ya follow twitter or my instagram it is on there! (handle @ lilcherbear for both twitter & instagram) ] of what I have been seeing throughout the evening.

When we wrapped up & got essentially kicked outta the floor, folks that are w/ me might have best summed up how Day 1 will be 'absolute chaos'. Hopefully the staff will keep it together as they always do...though come to think of it...I did see an ambulance roll on by. 

Hmm...

WELL I should at least try to get 4hrs of sleep & start my adventure up again tomorrow, stay tuned for more pictures, thoughts, sketches & random madness. Stay classy San Diego! ;)
