Otakon 2012 – Technoangel Studios

Hi Everyone!

Otakon is almost here!!! People are starting to get really excited about all the wonderful things that will be in the Dealers Room and Artist Alley. I have gotten multiple inquiries about what else is going to be offered at this year’s Otakon.

I have the honor to introduce you to Technoangel Studios!

Technoangel Studios sells a combination of original art buttons and prints, as well as their geek culture themed ratings.

“I’m a hobby artist focusing on artwork featuring on visual kei inspired content and/or cute stuff. Typically I can be found hosting a table at a number of anime conventions in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States and I also enjoy hosting live sessions on livestream (see my twitter feed for times and links). Thanks for taking the time to check us out, be it either in person at one of the cons we attend or just by stumbling here via the web, and if theres anything in particular you would like to see from us send us an email.”

“Web designer by day, artist by night. That’s probably why I seem to find way too much joy in writing the code for this site when I’m not drawing. I work in a variety of mediums, ranging from copic markers and pencil doodles to digital pieces using Photoshop and a tablet. I primarily create original works for prints, and fanart chibis for buttons.”

Technoangel Studios also does some fanart but its not a primary focus of their studio. They also do commissions while at cons. So you should definitely check them out when you are there!

They will be located in the Artist Alley – C04 – which is along the wall.

(This is probably my favorite photo that I took on Friday).

I have uploaded all the photos that I took on Friday from Animazement on my FLICKR (Link Below). I’ll be posting them on Facebook as well so people can tag the photos. I’m having a problem with Facebook today so it may be tomorrow. I will try again later today though.

Working Hard

Hi Everyone!

I am really booking it this weekend to get my Primm cosplay done. My hopes is that it will be done tomorrow. I probably could have finished it today; however, I totally nerded out and went to see “Avengers” AGAIN in IMAX.

(If you didn’t know I was a nerd by now, then you have totally not been paying attention lol)

Also, I will be attending Animazement this coming weekend so I am totally thrilled. One big problem is that I busted my toe so I think I’m going to have to change up my cosplay line because I won’t be able to wear certain shoes.

(It’s very painful!!!! The bruising is almost gone but the actual toe is in agony).

What happened you may ask??? The wall jumped in my way! (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!)

Have a great day everyone! I’ll post all my cosplay photos tomorrow!!!

300 Blog Posts!

Thank you for all for the love and support you have all given me throughout the years. I started this blog in 2009 right before I graduated from college. One of my Professors recommended to me that I should start an art blog because I love to write and art is my life! After I started it, I didn’t get too much response with my posts so I started to research on better ways to write and entertain my readers! I know have 56 wonderful subscribers here and over 140 LIKES on my Facebook page which is linked to this Blog! (http://www.facebook.com/ElizabethGmazPhotography

Perler Beads – White Mage – Final Fantasy

Hi Everyone!

I have been thinking for the last few days what my next Perler Beads piece should be and decided to create a White Mage from the Final Fantasy video game series! I love old school classic games; you really can’t beat the originals.

Hope you like it!!!

Perler Beads – Commissions Coming Soon (Ideas?)

Hi Everyone!

If you have read my blog posts from this week, you can see that I am getting back into Perler Beads.  I do anime, comic, cartoon, and video game characters.  I am going to begin posting photos of ones that I will be selling on my Future Etsy Page.  However, I am asking you what character/series would you like to be created?  

If you are interested in eventually buying from me, let me know what you would like to see! 

Thanks!

The Legend of Zelda

20120305-165638.jpg

Hi Everyone!

“The Legend of Zelda” is my favorite Nintendo franchise game series of all time. It was the first game I owned on the Nintendo! When “The Ocarina of Time” came out on the Nintendo 64, it consumed my life for hours and really for years. I still play my Nintendo 64 just because of that game.

These cosplayers were dressed as Link, the hero of the story, and the girl in the middle was dressed as the faithful, yet seriously annoying, fairy, Navi! (Who I seriously adore and am still pissed that “Majora’s Mask” blew it with dropping the Navi story – even though that was why the game was made, right?)

What made these cosplayers Rock was the fact that they really got into their characters.

Please see video below. Beware! You may laugh yourself to Death!

Katsucon 2011 – Silent Hill (Nurses)

Hi Everyone,

This photo was taken at Katsucon last year. I know it looks a little scary but they are supposed to be! They are Zombie Nurses from the HIT Game Series, Silent Hill.

Silent Hill is by far my favorite game series that I have ever played (that does not include Role Playing Games – which would be Final Fantasy). When it first came out on the Playstation in 1999, it took the world by storm by being the scariest game to ever be released. I still believe that Silent Hill holds the thrown as being the only game series uses psychological warfare on your MIND.

The below information gives you an overall feeling of what the games are all about. There are NO SPOILERS so don’t worry about it!


Silent Hill
Silent Hill is the first installment in the series and was released in 1999 for the PlayStation. Silent Hill follows Harry Mason as he searches for his missing adopted daughter in the series’ multiverse.


Silent Hill 2
This game was released in September 2001. This has to be my favorite of the entire series. The ending is so good, you just want to keep playing the game over and over. Silent Hill 2 follows James Sunderland as he searches for his deceased wife after having received a letter from her.


Silent Hill 3
This game was released in 2003. It is a direct sequel to the first installment in the series so I’ll leave it at that. Any information I give you would just ruin the story for you!


Silent Hill 4: The Room
This game was released in 2004. The game follows Henry Townshend, who finds himself locked in his apartment and discovers in it a portal to one of the series multiverse’s alternate dimensions.


Silent Hill: Origins
This game was released in 2007. It is a prequel with a plot that features Travis Grady, who becomes trapped in Silent Hill after rescuing a girl from a burning house. During his quest to find the fate of the burned girl, he encounters characters from the first game and some new ones from his own subconscious.


Silent Hill Homecoming
THIS IS THE SCARIEST GAME IN THE SERIES. The plot follows Alex Shepherd, a soldier who has returned from a war overseas. Alex discovers upon his arrival that his father has gone missing and his mother has become catatonic. His brother is the only one who can provide solace, but he soon vanishes.


Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
THIS IS NOT A SILENT HILL GAME! I don’t care what anyone says about this game. It was absolutely horrible! If they had just called it “Shattered Memories” and named the characters differently, it would have been a decent game. However, the fact that they wanted to “Reimagine the first game with this crap, is ridiculous. I would not waste my money. It has nothing to do with the story arc of Silent Hill. HATE HATE HATE.


Silent Hill: Downpour
The game is due to release on March 13, 2012. From what I have read, the plot follows Murphy Pendleton, a prisoner, who is stranded in Silent Hill after the prison transport vehicle crashed. The trailer looked really good so I am looking forward to this game.

I hope that explains the series well! There are a lot of scary games out there but nothing beats Silent Hill for me! I recommend playing the game series!
