Even though I never did technically made an announcement about it, I attended Banzaicon last weekend and had a blast. While we did have an A/C issue on Saturday (almost all day), the con goers and all the artists there definitely made the day brighter! A HUGE thank you to all of those who came by and said hello and to those who bought from our table!

Anyways, I had plans to attend Mochi Day in Greenville, SC this weekend but unfortunately the convention has been delayed to venue issues that are still up in the air. So what does that mean for my plans now since I do not have another convention until NC Comicon?

That means I am going to be opening up my commissions! I have two commissions I am working on currently ( VoltronZ1 and a private commission), and then I will be going through the list. While I will be working on my own projects, I will also be working on commissions beside it. 

And I have plans to open up my store sometime this month! There are a few things that may not be avaliable on my store but most of my items will be available to purchase! In the meantime, if you are wanting to purchase from me before my store is up, feel free to contact me through Facebook or message me here on Deviantart!
:star: No Map! Sorry! :star:

Hope to see you there for those of you who attend!

Chibi Rosalina by Paprika-Studios
Chibi Rosalina
Title: Chibi Rosalina
Series: Super Mario Galaxy
Programs Used: Pencil, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, Paint Tool Sai
Hours Consumed: 4.55 hours
Copyright:

• Rosalina is the sole property of ©Nintendo
• Artwork the property of • Paprika-Studios

Info:

So after a full day of working on Chibi Rosalina on and off, she is done! I am so happy about the result for her. As a child, I grew up with playing Nintendo games and I have been itching to do a chibi series of these characters. 

The background for the now dubbed "Chibi Nintendo Ladies", is "8-bit Themed". This is my homage to the many games from Nintendo that has survived throughout the years. Even though, Rosalina was techinically not around for the 8-bit era, I still felt it was good to include her in this homage because of the franchise she is apart of.

Chibi Imperial Destroyer Shimakaze by Paprika-Studios
Chibi Imperial Destroyer Shimakaze
Title: Chibi Imperial Destroyer Shimakaze
Characters: Imperial Destroyer Shimakaze
Series: Kantai Collection (KanColle)
Programs Used: Pencil, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, Paint Tool Sai
Hours Consumed: 5 hours
Copyright:

• Kantai Collection (KanColle) is the sole property of ©Kadokawa Games
• Artwork the property of • Paprika-Studios

Info:

When I learned that I got accepted to Kantaicon (which just took placed on September 6th), I knew I wanted to do some artwork that was themed towards the convention theme: military. So I started researching more about Kantai Collection. a web browser game where they made characters based on actual real life Japanese ships. I have seen the designs pop up on a lot of figures back when I was first accepted into Kantaicon and learning about it made me like this franchise more and more. 

So in the end, I chose five characters to do. One of the characters was, Imperial Destroyer Shimakaze. I wanted to do something fun with her and when I saw several pieces of work of what happens to her when she obtained damaged from being attacked, I knew I wanted to do my own rendition of her "battle damaged" self. I had to reverse how I normally do my eyes for chibis with Chibi Shimakaze but in the end, I absolutely loved how it turned out.

Hi everyone! I am Paprika and I am a just your regular 31 year old Irish anime fan who has love for Sailor Moon, Black Rock Shooter, Ghost in the Shell, and much much more!

Yay stalkers! I mean um what you know the good kind of stalkers. lol Yeah it is just so crazy that we have known each other online for so long and never found each other though Jenny and I have been going to AZ since 2010. Always love your Sailor Moon art. It has been too long since I have drawn but after AZ I am slowly getting back into drawing and writing. I am a dummy!
