Final Fantasy VII: Supernova by Risachantag
Final Fantasy VII: Supernova

It felt lovely to paint the FFVII crew again, it’s been so long! This was my holiday project. I probably spent 4-5 hours painting each character, if that gives you an idea of the amount of work in this.

Excited for the remake? I’m cautiously optimistic, though I have a lot of love for the original game.

Only one episode to go as of posting this ;_;

I was definitely out of practise at over the top shounen poses, this was a well-needed practise piece. Time to ONE PUNCH some art-block in the face!

One Punch Man Pin Set

I’ve been watching One Punch Man with my partner and enjoying the heck out of it. Also, for a ‘gag’ manga, bloody hell it’s pretty - the backgrounds and the animation are just distractingly good, and the manga is masterfully penned. ALL THE SPEEDLINES!

So I thought I’d make some pins, but… that quality difference. None of the others will match up to the beauty of number four.

Other general tips for puppetry for conventions:

-Make it lightweight. I use wireframe, foam and fabrics instead of paper-mache/clay/wood etc.
-If it's an animal or animal-like, watch videos of the animal to get an idea of how they move
-Beware the uncanny valley. Whether your puppet is meant to be creepy or cute, get feedback from those around you!
-Puppetry is hard on your arms and back, take breaks and have something to carry your puppet around safely in when not in use.
-Practise in front of a mirror, or with a video camera
-The puppet is a separate creature from you - it shouldn't look at and be interested in the same things as you. Also, try not to be looking at it all the time while performing.

Hi guys, the artist alley map has been released for SMASH this weekend! 

The artist alley has moved to the level 2 in the Grand Pavilion (where the panels and screening rooms were last year). Alas, no view over the race course this year!

My stall is "7th Heaven", along the right hand side. Stall number 7 even, I'm sure someone had fun with that. =P
