Today’s spotlight is on a duo, WOWZERS & Grey! 🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨
🎨 Introduce yourselves!
W: Hey how’s it going. I’m WOWZERS and I like memes and ruining my life. If i’m not losing season ranking in Overwatch and crying over Nier Automata I draw fanart or quietly work on future comic projects.
G: Heya guys I’m grey and I like drawing jojo and apologizing for jotaro kujo every day. It sounds like I’m just saying the same thing as wowzers but we actually have very similar tastes okay don’t roast me. I like memeing a lot too and being abused as mercy on overwatch every night.
🎨 What type of art style(s) interest the both of you? Do you two have any similar preferences or is it all different?
W: Personally i like really stylized art but that still pays deep attention to detail. I don’t really have too much of a specific art style taste because I’m very interested in many styles. I REALLY admire well rendered painted styles but i do also enjoy simplified art as well. I think we really vary in preferences really.
G: I also love art styles with very bold lines, good color theory, and mixed styles of eastern and western art! I don’t necessarily have a preference because I like any art style that feels personalized and different.
🎨 Has your art style changed since you’ve started your art career? If so, how?
W: IMMENSELY yes. Like almost everyone else, I began very young. I had a very grotesque art style that used to be endless basketball heads, no nose and stick proportions for a while lol. I was always stubborn so despite telling myself “I HATE ART I GIVE UP BEING AN ARTIST” i never really stopped drawing and I’m rather content with my style. It has a long history of failure to a pretty decent style so that’s good.
G: my art glowed up so much throughout the years but especially in 2015. If you ever feel bad about your art just know that I used to draw with a MOUSE on MS PAINT or paint tool sai for like 3 years. I basically had an existential art crisis and had a huge problem with not wanting my art to look “anime” but that obviously limited my art so I just yolo’d it and let myself draw however. So I’m really happy to grow everyday as an artist and play with styles a lot B^)
🎨 Name your favourite thing about being an artist.
W: I’ve found that the most powerful thing of an artist is the influences you can give to other people. Especially if that influence is lowkey PLEADING through fanart of a very isolated fandom to try to get people to get interested in it.
G: I like being able to connect with others with my art and being able to bond with others with common interest in anime or cartoons.
🎨 We’ve noticed that you have a variety of original characters. What are the most important factors for you in choosing which characters to draw?
W: wHO TOLD YOU. I suppose the most important factor is just on what ideas i have at the moment to further develop them. However it could be just how i feel at that time, like if i’m feeling sad i’ll draw the character that would look the saddest from them all sad haha.
G: i feel so attacked i literally post never post about them just because I’m shy about sharing my personal projects. I have a tendency of making characters just based on one key idea but I lean more on the characters I relate with more.
What is the best day to attend vancon 2017 of I’m only getting the preferred one day pass that includes panels and friday kareoke???
Is the kareoke worth going friday? I really want to see any panels with jensen and or misha, but I can’t seem to find a panel schedule, just one for ops and autographs.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

[!!!] EXO’LUXION IN NA :: A SURVIVAL GUIDE TO THE PIT
With EXO’s North American tour just beginning, it’s imperative that people know what they’re getting into if they have pit tickets. This is for everyone’s safety and enjoyment of the tour. I had already made this into a thread on twitter, but per request, it has now been tweaked and made into a masterpost here for convenience.

Is FursuitFriday still a thing? I’ve not done one in a while.
Anyway, here’s Tatonga, who’s a Pronghorn. Built by OneFurAll back in 2008, he made his first appearance at Further Confusion, AnthroCon, and then later at EuroFurence. I kept this one secret for a long time, and managed to mess with a few peoples’ heads ;)
These days, he most often pretends to be a reindeer at various Christmas themed events around the Vancouver area.
