Here is my entry! When I thought of mushroom village, I thought it would be cool if it was traveling on the back of a mata mata turtle.
What paper are you using? I work in Copics a lot and what paper you use is very important. I have sketched and colored on regular computer paper and it make those blobs and streaks too. When I use it on bristol or a mixed media with a vellum surface the markers blend like a dream!
I really liked this episode! I have been having issues trying to get my butt in gear and getting projects off the ground. I believe one of the reasons why I can't seem to get projects moving is because I haven't looked at the end product.
Listening to this podcast reminded me of a video I watched a while ago and I wanted to share it. It is a channel about creating video games but I feel that the same principles apply here too. :)

@jason-bowen Where is the light coming from? I like how the light was coming from the book like the first painting. :) I also like the dramatic light from the second painting but it seems it is from below rather than from the book. It is looking good so far!
I haven't used the iPad Pro, but I would guess it would be your monitor or iPad screen. Each monitor has different settings on how they show color. Have you tried grabbing a picture from the laptop and seeing it on your iPad?
Thank you! I love mandalas and zen tangle but it's hard to find places to put in the artwork without making it too busy. :)
Having that competition is scary at cons. There are so many artists, it can be tricky to stick out. Plus many of them are focused on fanart. I don't mind other artists doing fanart, it just makes me worry that is the only thing that sells at cons. :/ I may have to try one just to find out.
I will look into Will Terry's videos about cons! I didn't realize he did them! I will check it out, thanks!
I LOVE One Fantastic Week, but I have only listened to one or two of their talks. Maybe I should play them as I draw. C: I like the idea of going to cons before I get a table. There are a few cons around where I am at but I like to consider them as Baby Cons. They seem really small and I am not sure they even have artists there.
That makes sense about craft fairs. At fairs, people tend to create "practical" things that you can use like crochet hats and wooden spoons. It is easy for people to buy those items because they can see a use for it right away. I know when I am at a craft fair I feel like buying cute quirky gifts for myself or others and not so much art. Now that I think about, I tend to buy a lot of art when I go to cons :/ Another point for cons!
I wouldn't worry about having a large number of followers before going to a con or fair! One of the reasons for going to a fair/con is to grow your following. I have like 40 people on Facebook and 200 on Instagram and I had people coming up to me who said they saw my art on Social Media. :)
