One Punch Man Pin Set by Risachantag
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.

Chocobo Puppet
I made a chicobo puppet~! This is what was keeping me so busy for the last couple of months! I decided to make a baby chocobo for PAX Australia, as a bunch of cosplay friends were doing Final Fantasy costumes.

There's a bunch of hidden tricks with my chicobo puppet (his name is "Bobbin") - the tail and wings move, and he can raise his crest.

If you'd like to see him in action, there's a video here: (Excuse my nervousness, I've never been good with camera interviews.)

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

I fly out tomorrow, so if you'd like to preorder any prints or pins, please let me know by tonight! For info on preordering, see my last journal: Preorders for SMASH! in Sydney

I'm curious, do you draw or paint in a 'style'? If so, how would you describe it?
