I have started a designers blog.  Some of you may already know I am a costume designer, and some may not.

I am currently in a masters program for just this and will be launching a business, so I started a web-blog where I am talking about and posting pictures of my line for a fashion show in April, as I make it.

I basically asked friends to choose a character from anything (TV, movies, cartoons, comics etc etc) who's costume they liked and I would re-produce it for them.  Some of the costumes being made will be worn at Anime North 2012 in Toronto, Canada.

If you are interested or curious please drop on by bronwenrobbins.blogspot.com/ my Blog.  I've only just started posting pictures, so bear with me.

You may even catch a glimpse of :iconykansaki:
  • Reading: Clash of kings by George RR Martin
  • Watching: Jem and The holograms
  • Playing: Final Fantasy 12
  • Drinking: A tasty mug o' tea
Here is the list, ones in bold I have done. I do not claim that these are great photos, I just enjoy excuses to play with my dolls.

So last year I started a 100 themes project, I did not finish my list, but I intend to. I have decided to take some new themes and replace some of the ones that I had a harder time using. That is possibly cheating but I don't care. Actually I've seen a new list that is out on the web and DAA and many of the previous themes are there again so maybe it isn't cheating after all. :D

I'm still gonna do as many as I can

  • Reading: complete works of the brothers grimm
  • Watching: Kyou kara maou! season 3
  • Playing: Suikoden Tekieris (sp)
  • Eating: a fig newton
I'm not dead!  I have just recently been sick! Before that, I quit my absolutly horrible soul crushing job in a nationwide chain of Tailor shops, and after being unemployed for a month found a nice shiney new job as a florist.  Well aprentice florist :D  but hey!  Full time = booya.
So  I have been wish-washing over wheather  or not I should colour the other  picture of my OC's (the one with the elves) like I did with the one of the two humans.  I kind of like it as line art, but wonder if it would be better coloured.

So,

Do I?  
Or
Don't I?

What do you think?


Also I aplogise for the feet being cut off in both those pictures. I'm using a new Sketchbook and it's smaller then I am used to (but makes the pencil crayons look soooo good!)
I know I shouldn't complain, I mean I should be happy that people like anything I have put up here.  But I must say, it gets rather disheartening when the same things get faved over, and over, and over and they aren't (by my standards) really that great. While others, that I feel are much better drawn get completly ignored.
I understand that deviantart is a community that over all loves fanart, and so fanart of anything popular or something funny will constantly get faved. The joke has been made before, that if you put Sora from Kingdom Hearts in your picture and you will make it to the front page (under the old system, which relied on popularity). Sad but true.
It's alright,I like drawing fanart. Popularity has nothing to do with it in my case at least, if I didn't like the series, I wouldn't be drawing it after all.  I'm glad people like them, I really am! I hope people continue to look and like what they see.  After all, it does make me very happy when I see someone has faved anything I have done.  I just wish that some of my other work, what I would consider better work would get recognised as well (Fanart included).

Anyway, if you like my fanart, please check out my gallery for some of the other stuff I have done!  You just might see something you like!
I'm starting to draw again, I have a few ideas.  One is to list little paragraph stories here in my journal and write the imagry from them.  Mostly fanart I suppose (a few sailor moon and kingdom hearts types) but I do have some orignial characters that might need some love.  Hanging around with Yami-Caffine and AzraelEvangeline at a doll meet at my house on Monday, made me really want to draw those original characters again.


edit: I think I will do the little paragraph stories.  I'm in no way a great writer but I can try.  If anyone else wanted to use them for art inspiration that'd be groovey with me! but might be expecting too much, as I'm not that popular :/
After too long searching for art I know I have faved, I finally put everything into catagories.  Geez that took forever!
I wish I could draw hands better. Seriously, they are the hardest thing for me to draw :/  I've took figure drawing at school, why can I not draw decent hands!  Ugh!
So I put up some of the MANY photo's from my whirlwind tour of Japan!  Hope you like them!

I have more, but I think this is enough for right now :D
As the title says I will be away for a while!  So if replies to people fav'ing or adding watches get slow (I try to answer within a day with my thanks) Its not for any real reason, other then the fact that as of 5:30 tomorrow morning I will begin my epic journey to JAPAN to vist a friend (and disneyland) who has been over there teaching english for 3 years now.

I will return to my native soil on April 5th and hopefully will have some photos I am proud enough of to actually host here on Deviantart and not just on my flicker account :P  I am going to be there for cherry blossom season so I'll keep my fingers crossed that I get some good shots.

If anyone is curious here is what my schdule there looks like:
March 27 : Tokyo disneyland!
March 28 : Disney Sea!
March 29 : Tokyo: Akihabara, Harajuku, Odaiba (suppsedly sundays is the day all the cosplayers go to hang out in Hrajuku!
March 30 : More of Tokyo, shirnes, temples, Tokyo tower and the like.
March 31 : Kyoto
April 1  : Nara!  (where I will be attacked by tiny deer wanting crackers!)
March 2  : Supposed to be Himeji and Kobe
March 3-4: Takamatsu for a tour of my friends town, school and cherry blossom party!
March 5 : Back to Tokyo and Canada.
I choose to embrace this new Layout.  I find it cleaner and brighter.

Also when did I get 2000+ page views?  Thanks everyone!
  • Watching: The phantom of the Opera
Much like my good friend ykansaki,  now that Avatar is done, and I assume any real fan has seen the final episodes (either on the original boradcast or on the interweb), so this is not a spoiler. I would like to say:

*clears throat*

KATAANG BITCHES!!!

WooOO!!!



disclaimer:
I have nothing agaisnt Zutara and no lyoalties to Kataang either, but Katara and Aang being togeather was set up from Episode 1: Boy in the iceburg, so obviously it was going to be the final result.
wow I'm over 1000 pageviews!

Thanks everybody!

I'll make a prettier thank you when my brother who is visiting has gone back to alberta!
