I made an announcement over on my Tumblr a couple days ago, but I will be attending Everfree NE as a vendor again this year! I'm going to try to post more of the stuff I'm working on here before the convention (I've got some new button designs, couple more felt figures, and I'm working on some posters!), but I figured I would say it here, too. 

I'm Table #43 (FlowingChiaki), so if you're going, come say hi!

I've dabbled in many different mediums, including digital drawing, acrylic and watercolor painting, marker drawings, and now felting!

I've been knee deep in the MLP:FiM fandom since 2011, and, like, neck deep in the Splatoon fandom since 2015. I also like Steven Universe, Gravity Falls, and Wander Over Yonder (The latter two I still need to actually catch up on...), as well as lots of video games, from Mass Effect to Mario Kart!

I've had an original story brewing in my head for years, but ever since I became a squidkid, its been placed on the backburner to make way for stories about my Splatoon OCs, and I'm hoping I'll draw up some of those ideas soon.

Finally, I am WAY more active on Tumblr than I am here. dA is, at this point, more or less where I post my major projects, or compilations of smaller related projects (like felt figure collections and button designs). I'll hopefully have more stuff posted here soon!

Starry Sky, Starry Squid by LinksLove
Starry Sky, Starry Squid
So Splatoon has definitely gotten me interested in learning about real life squids (and also octopuses), and like a lot of people, I thought it would be cool to see what inkling variants based loosely on real squid species. Probably one of my favorites so far are Firefly Squidwhich are tiny and adorable and glowy. The more I thought about it, the more I liked the idea of Almond being a firefly inkling, so I wanted to draw that. I’ve never really done a night/dark scene before anyway, so practice there was good as well.

So sadly, due to the convention I vended at earlier this month, and catching up on stuff that needed to be done afterwards, I was unable to finish this in time to submit to a big Splativersary collab that happened (in fact, I had just barely finished just the lineart when I realized that I’d missed the deadline…I thought I had more time ;_; ), but I wanted to finish this anyway, and I’ll probably do similar pieces with the rest of the team!

Holy crap, this took longer than I thought! It was fun, though, I love working with color like this! (I might eventually replace this file with a higher quality scan if I can)

EDIT: Got a high quality scan done!

You're a Squid now, You're a Pony now by LinksLove
You're a Squid now, You're a Pony now
You guys had to know I would do a crossover of pony and squid sometime. XD I really like how this turned out, but it was definitely a learning experience. Probably won’t be the last squidpony art I do!

Cutie Mark Crusaders: Flower Crowns by LinksLove
Cutie Mark Crusaders: Flower Crowns
A remake of a drawing I did at my table at Everfree last year! I loved the concept and wanted to try a new coloring style, which turned out really nicely, I think.
