Kalo's Deviants

People from the IRL


Online Buddies


Friggin Cool Artists



Anna for Sepi by Mermaid-Kalo
Anna for Sepi
Here's a cute watercolor of Anna for :iconsepisnake:
We did a mermaid trade 8D The color correction on these watercolor scans is always so tough D8 I'm worried that the photo looks a little better on my Instagram @ Kalo_Mermaid

I miss having a cetacean mermaid :C I used to have one, but like many old characters, she's kinda faded away. I will make a new one soon, hopefully 8D
See their half of the trade here: Trade: Hayla by SepiSnake
Adopts from May by Mermaid-Kalo
Adopts from May
Here's a few photo eggs I've been sitting on for a while. :3
Each character belongs to their respective owner.

Dancing Amethyst by Mermaid-Kalo
Dancing Amethyst
Amethyst who is dancing that I doodled while I was playing DND 8D She is on gray paper and covered in glitter, because GLITTER.
I had to do a lot "in post" to get her skin color right O.o She and LSP have a reddish-pinkish-purple that I don't really have in my markers.... and I have a lot of purples.
They're just all more blue-ish and cool than warm and red-ish. If you know any markers in the prisma or copic spectrum that are what I'm talking about, let me know. I have no idea >.<        
Oceanic Whitetip Shark by Mermaid-Kalo
Oceanic Whitetip Shark
Last one :3 I think shark week is technically over now?
Idk, I don't have cable HAAA

Still trying to get more interesting results out of this toned paper stuff. I might've done some things differently, idk. 

These sharks are cool as fuck,… Check 'em out :3 I start my mermaid half where the shark's pelvic fins are-ish? Taur style where the fish half begins at the big pectoral fins aren't really my bag, but I love how other people can pull it off. Regardless, my mer version doesn't really get the true animals' wing like pectoral fins. I just love their blotchy white patches and curvy swoopy fins <3
Echo from Rescue Sirens by Mermaid-Kalo
Echo from Rescue Sirens
Here's Echo from Rescue Sirens. Chris Sanders great new book I can't wait to see :D I love that all the Sirens have such varied tails from sea life.

I'm really feeling the characters so far 8D Echo seems like she's kind of the rouge, spicy one. I like that she apparently doesn't direct her energy well when it comes to protecting the environment. I totally get that, when your good intentions just come out the wrong way.

Regardless, all the characters seem really sincere and genuine from what I can tell so far. So much other similar girl teams have characters that are obviously made to just sell toys or just straight up have no heart. I'm stoked for Rescue Sirens

This baby belongs to :iconalohalilo:

Con Season Break

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 17, 2015, 11:37 PM
I did something dumb. Somebody ordered an item from me at Aggiecon, and I lost the paper slip where I wrote your contact info. I made the item, but obviously, can't mail it cuz I dun derped. Please contact me if you are that person with the details of which con and what item. I'm truly sorry I dun derped and hope to get your item in the mail as soon as possible.

I knocked out 3 of my cons with one more to go. Tff in February. Then Aggiecon and Furry Weekend Atlanta which were pretty much back to back D8 They were only separated by a week.
Nonethless, I have till the end of May for recon till Comicpalooza hits here in Houston.

I've got a couple big projects I'm working on as well as making some new prints for Comicpalooza. It's the biggest con I do all year. After that, I'll be done for a while. 

I'm thinking about doing MFF, but not sure yet. Plane tickets and all that. I'm definitely gonna try for the den next year for FWA though. 

Sorry this is really disjointed O.o

I'm feeling really grateful for my friends I have the privelidge of traveling and making art with. Those of you I get to table with, hang out with etc. I am bad at feels ; 3 ; I just feel like I'm in a better place with friends than I've been in a while. I'd had a couple instances where I was squeezed out/left/falling out depending on who you ask. Even though I'm done dwelling n past experiences, it's definitely made me more appreciative of my relationships with people while I have them. 

 Thank you to everyone who came to see me at TFF, Aggiecon, and FWA. It was also a pleasure meeting those of you in meat space whom I've only known online. I can't say how much it means to me when you support my art from complments to commissions. Thank you so much.
