Finally it has started to sink in... I can't believe I won the CG category of the art contest!!
There were so many aweinspiring entries that I felt that my chances were growing slimmer by every moment.
A Wacom... intuous...A5...wide!! That's just too much!! *kyaaaa~~* And publication in ImagineFX along with a one year subscription. I sure earned back those £7 spent on entry.
And here I wasn't even sure I'd be going until friday evening, I'm glad I did.
I feel a bit bad for not creating a piece of art particularily for this contest as I know most ppl did, but with exams around the corner I really wouldn't have had the time.
I didn't have much time to socialise this time around and I didn't know most of the ppl that were there, but next time I'm hoping to talk to some of the awesome artists whose entries I saw. I rarely get to talk to fellow manga artists so I would really like that.
Woooaa my first large scale expo! It was quite something! So many ppl and so many entertainment companies and retailers!
My only previous convention experience is Uppcon, and although there were plenty of ppl you just didn't have the same amount of coverage from the entertainment industry.
I arrived a bit late today so I missed most of the freebies but I did manage to get hold of a Naruto and a Eragon poster!
I think I liked the manga alley with the drawing table and the original manga creators Sweatdrop Studio the most. It's just rare to see so much creativity on display and that made me really happy. ^^
I finally got to see a KAKASHI COSPLAY!! He was even in anbu outfit!
I even got a pic with him and his cool friend. Unfortunately the angle was a bit off and I got his Icha Icha book pointing up my nose.
There was a really good trigun cosplay as well and he made the best expression for the photo.
So exhausted from just a few hours at the expo, too many impressions I think.. ^__^
Exams start on Tuesday, I'll be in hell for three weeks forward, but I don't regret going today. I would've regretted not going. ^^
