::Personal:: Lune Istar by Jotaku
::Personal:: Lune Istar
Got this child in a trade a while back, and finally got around to drawing him. ;w;

I'm a bit clueless on the details as of yet, but I'm going with the idea that Istar suffered severe damage to his wings at a point earlier in his life. It messed up his ability to fly and left his floating sporadic at best. Without proper use of his wings to support the magic that allows him to hover, he is prone to falling often. This is the reason behind all his scars and almost constant bandages covering his lower legs.

Not being able to fly? Yeah, that's messed him up. He's overall a sad, little cupid, and best described as 'pouty.' He's shy and very cautious of the world around him after his injury. Istar lives in the mindset of being a small, powerless creature up against a world bent on screwing him over.

Not sure what I want him to "do" but I know I want him to live in a smaller, ivory and grey stoned city. /strokes chin

WOW IM GONNA BE TABLING AT SAKURACON!!!  This is my first time tabling ever fjdlk;sd GOD IM SO EXCITED IM SCREAMS!!!! AAAAA!!!!!
But okay, got any advice??

Like, list of things I should know, keep in mind, prepare for??  Things I should make sure to have/bring?  Any suggestion of number of different prints, how many of each, etc?  Prices??

I've heard bigger prints are typically more popular, as well as things like buttons and charms.  I already have charms I want to try and get going, so that I def plan to have.

I mean, I've attended cons lots of times.  But I've never been on the artist side of it, and don't really know what to expect
I'd like to get the jump on planning now, so that I'm not fUMBLING TO GET IT TOGETHER month before con, y'know??

About Me!

Heyoooo Jotaku here!
Often known as Jo or Jojo.

I'm 21, female, and currently living in Oregon. I do not attend school at the moment, but reaaaallly wanna attend Digipen. *3*

I'm a fandom dabbler; if it's really popular chances are I've seen/read/watched it and may or may not do fanart here and there. Mostly my gallery's com work cuz hey artist's gotta make a living! I reserve my dA gallery mostly to finished works. Keep an eye on scraps tho, who knows what'll end up there.

Currently I am working on a Project called LatchKeys. It will be a game and comic and pretty much is consuming my every waking thought right now. You can find art of it in my gallery under the LatchKeys folder. There is a tumblr (latchkeyscomic) but it is u/c at this time.
