I also have a folder especially for my free linearts. Feel free to color any or all of them! Just remember to give me credit for the lineart.

Other than the free linearts, you may only use my works if they were something I did specifically for you. Like a commission or request and even then I would like you to credit me. Otherwise, you will be reported.

Fullbody of Naoki with a background :iconxpixelangelx: paid

2 character colored bust of Hyou's male and female forms from :iconshinjistar: 112

reminder for me when I use the Tsukiko journal skin: That is being caused because the background is an image; which doesn't repeat seamlessly. You can use an additional code each time you submit an entry to get rid of that. Just remove the star. :) Here it is

Back from Naka-kon!

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 16, 2015, 2:54 PM
Well I actually got back around this time yesterday. ^^; I had over 1,000 deviations to get through so that's what I did yesterday when I got back.

Man did that con get bigger since the last time I went. We stayed in a hotel suite like 3-5 walking minutes away so we didn't have to find a parking space there and thank goodness for that. The parking looked horrid! :faint:

I got to see Greg Ayres and Micah Solusod! If you don't know Greg Ayres has been a voice actor for roughly 15 years. Some notable roles he has voiced are Son Goku in Saiyuki, Chronos in Chrono Crusade, Kaoru Hitachin in Ouran High School Host Club, and Ganta Igarashi (I believe I spelled that name right) in Deadman Wonderland, to name a few.

A few of Micah Solusod's roles are Soul in Soul Eater, Mizuki in Kamisama Kiss, and Ame in Wolf Children.

I also got to try some authentic Japanese and Korean food when we ate out! XD If you want to see some of the stuff I bought, let me know and I can try to get some pictures and put them in my stash.
