However, this year Fanime announced that they'd be having a judging panel for artists, since there isn't enough room in the new ballroom for everyone. So we didn't apply. Friend E will say it's in protest of the new system, and I will say it's because I'm too chicken to try. Honestly, reading the posts of artists that were rejected makes me really sad. At least with first come first serve, there aren't as many hurt feelings, I'd like to think.
But even though I won't be selling - I'm still pretty proud of my designs, so I'll share them over a few posts with you :) After Memorial Day I'll do an open card giveaway, so stick around if you like any of them :)
The first card is a dainty Magikarp on a crisp white card.

Speaking of Pokemon, I've finally weaned myself off the game with the help of Bravely Default. BD is seriously awesome. It's an RPG by Square Enix - but it plays like it was built for the busy adult commuter. You can play with one hand, skip all the scenes and replay them later at your convenience, speed up the battles, change the encounter rate for random monsters up or down, and even auto battle! SO NICE. And despite all the convenience, it's still a pretty tricky game! I'm max level and still need to look up the FAQs for bosses :P
