COMMISSION: MILEENA by viciousSHADi
COMMISSION: MILEENA
..Bikini!Mileena, no less. :D

Furyfire283 commissioned me for a digital piece on-site at Kumite in Tennessee! Being commissioned for digital art on-site at a con is actually not uncommon for me, and it's actually pretty neat since it tells me that people like my digital work enough that they want one of their own!

Anyway! This was a lot of fun to draw up; plus I wanted to dabble with some Mortal Kombat characters anyway, so this is a start. We both agreed that her MKX face was the way to go (I actually like the design of her face in this one, so). And of course, being me, I had to give her a bit of tone; she is a fighter after all. ;)

Thanks again for the commission, Furyfire283 !

AKA, "that thing that keeps Shadi away forever" :lmao:

But seriously, I thought I'd ramble a bit about the upcoming con season.

This year could shape up to be a very different year from past years. What I mean is that I'm actually working towards selling at Fighting Game tournaments (such as CEO), and getting more involved with the FGC. As some of you know, I like fighting games. I really like fighting games (especially Tekken, hahaha). And while I have enjoyed the anime cons in the past, in recent years I felt as though it wasn't really my scene. There's a lot of popular fandoms that I just can't get into, and what's popular changes so often that I don't see the point in keeping up...whereas with fighting games, there will always be a fandom for Street Fighter, and Guilty Gear, and Tekken. Sometimes those fandoms may not seem so strong (as is the case with any game that hasn't had a new installment in a while, for example), but there's enough of a vestige that I feel it's worth remaining with. I feel that there's more dedication and lastability, and as such I feel a stronger sense of belonging.

Now, that's not to say that I'm going to quit anime cons; not at all. There's still a few that welcome my niche tastes, such as Animazement, Nashicon, and AWA (AWA I feel has come around in recent years--there's more variety in fandoms in recent years. I'm looking at you, Tokusatsu fans!).

Having said that, one of the other big changes coming for me is that I'd like to put more focus on my original ideas. I've collected quite the Idea Debt (thank you, Jessica Abel), and I need to do something with it. And I think now is the time to take action. I know that original characters, especially ones created by a no-name nobody, can be pretty intimidating, but I'm determined to make it work. I won't go into what my plan is, but let's just say that I'm going to stick to this commitment, and actually put work into it. And of course, once I've become a little established with this idea, I'll be hitting the comic con road and see where that takes me.

Anyway, I've rambled enough. I apologize if this isn't coherent. I've spent the better part of my day working on commissions (I'm hoping to clear out my queue by the end of the month...maybe I'll open up for more?), and now I gotta go work on prints for the upcoming season. :faint:
