I volunteered for security at mcfc 2015 and had a great time. I didn’t sell any art because I didn’t make time for artist alley but I did make a few badges while working on slow check points.
This is one.
< I found a drawing prompt online that said to draw a soccer mom gone nuts. I drew the picture attached to this post. When I showed a coworker instead of seeing a woman pushed to far she saw a woman ready to protect her kids from some unseen danger. You may experience this time and again. It doesn't mean you've done a bad job conveying your idea (although you might wanna think about it if no one gets it) just that you don't share a common background. Be prepared to accept their vision and equally valid as yours. You don't want to keep someone from buying your art because they see it differently then you do.
This is a practice badge I did myself. The bunny is the playful, omg there is so much fun giggle, side of me that comes to life at fur cons. The sloth is the day to day me that wants the stupid to go away and let me sleep.
I did this one with the crayola pencils. I like how vivid the colors are but they can be limiting and are so so on the blending.
