    <center><h1><b>I'm BACK!</b></h1></center>

    Well after rather prolonged absence I'm ready to revive my shabby doodlish fanfic x fanart topic!

    Some of You following Discord might've seen me appear to chat bit from time to time and know as to how the artsy things continued. The biggest downfall was me not being able to finish artbook sketches and lore edits etc... so artbook is still widely in progress and we still did not seen 3 members of "Unit 6" as well as many pieces of their gear. but let us begin with catch up! Some of the much earlier inked linearts did receive their deserved coloring. So let's begin with probably most awaited:
    LUMOS
    Lumiday7.png

    In my own design of operative suit. Bit greenish. I've planned them s something that was designed based on IV WW uniforms used in jungle warfare. I though idea might be cool and add a bit variety. Like most cases: it was heavily inspired by in game pieces. And also MATEBA !!! Classics are best :). We can imagine now Lumos as field officer operative with Mateba s her officer gun blazing through some IV WW region ruins with mutated jungle flora... and possibly fauna *wink wink*

    Then:
    NORIKO
    Progress_5.png

    Most was said about her in her initial bio. Carrying 'rather light' but 'packing punch' weaponry she's meant for hunt and seek role in 'battlefield'. Though I admit she's prolly most shining in cyber-warfare. There is still much to be said about her on that note, like the children experimentation results involving her and something I would call for now "Emergent Algorithm DID" ;)
    KORYOU
    Progress7.png


    Miss field commanding officer. Much more to be said about her. I admit the continued thought notion that making her loli-like was something I considered fun. Especially since she's meant to be CQC expert and when we put aside things like "mass" or "output of physical strength" in quite many cases small frame might be extreme asset in fight (only big downside is 'range' of someones actions/attacks). And cybernetization does allow us to put aside mass and strength factors A LOT. Also: who would expect hr to be dangerous up close? 1 sec ignorance: it's worth a loss in hands of expert XD. Same psychological play was already at work in some sci-fi classics like "Screamers"

    That's it for now ! I'll be posting soon the full report on convention endeavor and list of 'what's next' and I really hope you guys will like it ^^!

    Cyaa soon!

    EDIT: Sadly as You guys can see - the bbcode still does not work on forum's new posts... thus neither headers nor pics show properly T_T
    EDIT2: The images work!!! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧..... sadly headers I like to use so much still seem out of hand but well, whatever. I'm super glad that I can once more post images and soon update things further. Hope Y'all are happy about that as well :D

    Thanks for continuous support UrODelA :D !

    And I am happy to see you're also coming by Venkman.

    As You all know over week ago I was joining in on Akumakon as one of invited artists. Most of You saw it but the stall looked more or less like:
    C3aMGuzWMAEwZzR.jpg:large

    While it received quite few praises from committee - it was not much popular. Strangely enough I'm worried about Furries outdoing regular manga arts at Irish conventions. But no much on this topic... it's... personal vendetta ;)

    The event was utterly fun and I had a good time there mostly due to very good organization of all that was happening, Artist Alley included. The dead end result was however:
    16 posters sold
    2 bags sold
    1 commission (on Groot XD)

    On social side of things I must say that for unknown reasons western Ireland is much less aware or fond of Sci-fi anime genres and while hype over certain game with initials O.W. was all too present - most people did not know about Ghost in the Shell in general or (which dumbfounded me) even idea of mecha (in terms of Landmates and Powersuits of GitS lore).

    So 3 things important to come!

    All in all I have MUCH merchandise in terms of posters and currently gather info from my pro friends (and Akumakon art director ;) ) about opening an internet shop with posters and bags :D. So if anyone of You would like to have Lumos Operative poster or Bag with Tachikoma shouting "HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY! " then it'll be here! The pricing wil most probably be the same as one I used in convention (2EU on A3 poster and 7EU on cotton bag - bags are pricey to make T_T). And surely if idea launches well enough more will come.

    As some of You know the artbook with lore and all things fanfic is still very much under construction. There is bunch of raw sketches. For instance we'll (finally ) meet soon male members of Unit 6 and Disrespect art is in queue for coloring :) (both versions of it XD). But if you're not all that keen on GAR things like that I still will provide two other interesting things as: lore-containing weapon and gear schemes are planned for soon future and faceworks (the sets of examples of facial expressions) of already known Unit 6 members. I also plan on creating Maven, Batou and/or Motoko arts... alas I already might tell I HATE riding on fandom like that. I I mean by that that while Maven is fine for fanarting - I dislike making own version of already extremely popular characters since I feel guilt for them being popular not for quality and at time not even for the 'characters' they show but for sheer popularity of their 'icon' :/. Sorry for this personal rant.

    I am going Twitch! It was mentioned... over 2 months ago? Well I will be trying my best to join 'Twitch Creative' community to show how I am making those terrible doodles of mine :P. Some asked for it and there is a dim hope that also some of my gallery followers will join in on watch - and while there will be 1 other artsy project going on (as well as things like commissions) There will be much GitS things to be seen there.

    ADD+ ULTRA!!!

    I probably could and would make some community contest of sorts where to prices y shabby posters and bags could be added. It would be a real craic if Lumos could join in on Jury we would make it 'joint contest' and some in-game skins or other rewards will be included. If You guys are keen on this idea I might dwell upon it a bit and propose some ideas as to how execute it to make it fun. But if YOU GUYS have any ideas for fun GitS or GitS:FA themed contest please share :D! All is up in the air for now and I would love to see it take some shape :)

    Awesome booth Dandare! Wow your prints and posters look great! You have shirts too? That's super cool! Sorry the furries got more attention than you, that is a down right shame. Silly furries :( I guess it's more of a trend at the moment than cyberpunk stuff, but that's ok, wait till the movie comes out! I bet once the new GITS movie comes out, people will be going bananas over sexy cyberpunk ladies ;)

    I would love to have a contest with the community! I got slightly confused however, would you have your art as some of the prizes? It would be cool to do a community coloring contest of your art! If you are ok with that of course. You could post outlined characters that people could print out and color! I only suggest that because not everyone is super creative, but anyone can color! :)

    Glad you are doing well, and I can't wait for your twitch channel, I will subscribe right away!

    @Dandare ...interesting thoughts through and through; especially the fact, that we share our 'interests' most likely in a 'bubble' of like-minded, already knowing hepcats ^^
    maybe after the release of the GitS LAM you will notice a spike in conversations about your artwork and projects. hopefully i can find some time to be present, when you step up to be the 'Bob Ross' of this community; happy little spidertanks and all! ^^

    @Venkman ...oh, yes please! adult coloring books are a thing, even getting a more prominent role in the book market.

    Time for a thing which (as everything regarding me lately) is long due. I hope it'll lure back @Ghostazarashi and possibly @Kylekatarn . The long promissed :

    VIRGIN KILLER SWEATER MAVEN!

    tbd4pm.jpg

    As always I ask forgiveness for my shabby style :P

    Stil though: Maven is real fun character. She was also 1st one I actually choose as operative in game and she can be a true nightmare as a sniper on some maps. Not mention her sexappeal being a match to Major herself :) . Personally I find her Vanilla look most appealing. Bit tomboish short-cut hair and ebony skin make a nice refreshing balance. I sometimes wish to know the level of her cybernetization as well :3

    Even so: approach with caution! (and be wary of weird solid light walls :P )
