a little help? ^.^  
ADV licensed the japanese movie Dark Water!! Yay!!! =^__^= For those who haven't seen it, it's a creepy film done by the japanese director of the Ring. It's one of my favorite japanese movies.. I'm totally thrilled about this!! ^___^ *cradles the copy on her hard drive* Now I can buy a nice DVD version soon! Yay!! =^__^=

In other news, I need a little help from everyone. ^.^

I'm debating, for Anime Expo and before that, the idea of offering prints/products/etc..... What does everyone think? I would do some new fanart pieces, probably mainly yaoi and yuri. I've been experimenting with how to make bookmarks, and I know how to get a high-quality print made...

What does everyone think? Should I try/bother? Mmm... I've got a bunch of ideas, and I think I have the ability... is it worth the effort to make a little extra cash for my Japan trip? ^^ I also need to think up decent prices, based on the cost to me of course. ^.^

Mmmm... well, we'll see! Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think about it! You can also suggest products/drawing subjects, or tell me that I'm completely stupid for even thinking about it! XD

I think it's a great idea. Unfortunately I won't be there to fully support you in your effort. Now that you mention that though, I may want you to draw a few characters from my story just to get your take on them . . . it seems your pretty busy though so I may just catch up to you week eleven after you already have your stuff in for graduation.

I say go for it! There'd be nothing to lose, ne?

It's a great idea to try out. You should see how it goes. The only thing you have to lose is some of the art supplies if it doesn't go well, but I'm sure that those supplies wouldn't fully go to waste since you'd eventually use them, and I'm sure that things will go well anyway with your art skills.

But a way to look at it is that it's better to try and know what happens rather than wondering what would've happened if you never tried at all.

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! Finally! It's been out (Theatrical release in cinemas and DVD release) for yonks in the UK and I've been tearing my hair out trying to find American fans for ages. I'm so happy! I'm glad a company is good enough to release it before the remake. This has really made my day.

Do I have permission to repost that information on my LJ? :)

On the debate thing, I think if you feel up to it and confident about it, why not? :) It'll be fun and you'll get a little extra money, so I don't see how anything bad will come of it.

Of course you have permission! ^.~ It's not my exclusive information or anything ^__^

Thank you! *hugs* I'm so happy! Even though I'm from the UK, I know that when something comes out in America, the fandom grows. And I'm trying to hold up the miniscule Dark Water fandom on the web. x_x I actually want to make a community soon, when I get off my ass.

I'll stop rambling :P You got me started.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on June 1st, 2004 10:32 am (UTC)
XDDD *grins* If you make a community, I'll join for sure! ^___^ The fandom here isn't the largest when it comes to live-action japanese horror films, but you can bet that when that remake eventually comes out, the fandom will grow in leaps and bounds! But I'm soooo excited to have the original out on DVD soon!!! <3<3

Do what makes you happy hun. I'm going to be accepting commissions while having stickers, and maybe a few shirts available forpurchase. I need to look around and see what's immediately available for me around my area and such. O-o
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on June 1st, 2004 10:30 am (UTC)
I have some ideas for t-shirts. ^__^ I mean, as far as getting them made. I'll discuss them with you soon! ^^

off on a tangent...
Maybe start a website where you would accept commissions? That way you might be able to draw in more people (because each product is unique)? Commissions seems to also go quite well at cons. ^_^ *plinks in his $0.02*

Re: off on a tangent...
Hehee ^__^ I'm debating on that. The problem with commissions is that each piece takes a long time to do, and so commissions can be really expensive. At least with products with the same images on them available to everyone, I can make them a lot cheaper. ^^
