Lani Water-Hair by Mermaid-Kalo
Lani Water-Hair
Here is a watercolor painting I made of Lani, my main Mermaid. This is what I'm putting on my new business cards. I'm hoping to streamline watercoloring to where I can offer it at cons. For now, it is definitely an option for online commissions :3 
Fall Dopts by Mermaid-Kalo
Fall Dopts
Here are some fall dopts that didn't get posted up here. I'm just trying out a different way of posting them. Not sure if I prefer this way, or the other way better. 
The other way includes the BG's from their WEB files while this involved harvesting them from the multi-layered photoshop files. 
The opal dragoness did not have an egg as she was sold at auction as an original dopt.
All of these ladies belong to their respective buyers.

Dopts from January
Here's a trio of adoptables from this month and last. 

I make these a lot D8 I think I might even have some more in my folders that haven't made it up here O.o

I use the photos as jumping points for my markings and color schemes, so they're always fun :3

Chibi Badges by Mermaid-Kalo
Chibi Badges
Here's some chibi badge examples I made in preparation for TFF and hopefully FWA. I wanted to show that you can have regular paper, toned paper, or a sepia look to the coloring. The sepia badges will be a notch cheaper because the coloring is obviously less complicated.

The scrapbook borders and glitter are optional as well. Freya is my DND druid OC, Mira is a ribbon seal, and Ari is a lioness/catfolk DND ranger :3

Presale badges are open, btw :3

Oni-con This Weekend!

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 29, 2014, 8:23 PM
Hey guys I'm going to be in Galveston at Oni-con again this Halloween weekemd :D I'm super stoked! I always live being in Galveston for the weekend and drawing by the sea :3 

I do need to let you guys know that the other artist I am sharing my table with has severe mascot phobia. I'm asking that if you come to my table (and please do :3) please do not do so in full suit. My friend knows furrydom is a friendly place, she just laments that she gets very scared of full suit. 

I also want to announce that I will be in the Dealer's Den at Texas Furry Fiesta this year :D well... Next year XD 

I have been spending the last 6-ish weekends painting a mural at the pet retreat I work at 8D I will post some nice pics once it is finished!

I have barely been present online because I'm finishing a certification that is basically a full time internship then working weekends. It has been... Manic? Arduous? Emotionally trying? I'm finishing my cert, but I've really learned from the experience that the job (teaching) is not for me. It has its moments, but overall It will be a line on my resume that can hopefully make me marketable in some way or another. I've been such a wreck through much of the process in more ways than I care to divulge, but I will be finished soon and intend to be more present online.

  • Mood: Panic
  • Listening to: Some hipstery stuff spotify spit out for me :3
  • Drinking: Coffee

CHOOOOSE... One of my business card designs…
