Hi everyone!

I wanted to write a journal to just really write a genuine, heartfelt thank you. For the recent DD on my  painting "Sunset Embrace", for all the overwhelmingly positive responses, and to all the nice people who came and said hello (and some people even left me gifts!!) at Anime Weekend Atlanta and at New York Comic Con. I've had such a blast at both conventions and thank you so much for supporting my work, for leaving me comments, adding my work to your faves, and just for enjoying my art!! I read every comment I get but I don't always respond (since I feel like I will sound like a broken record...)

So yes. Thank you!!!

And then for some information: I know I sold out of a variety of things at New York Comic Con so I wanted to make sure people know that you can order prints from my online store; or if you wanted something in a custom size, feel free to send me a note and I will get back to you! It might take a little bit of time since I don't check dA every single day, but I will read your message.

Additionally the links above are other great ways to keep in touch with my work and stalk me obsessively. Liking my page on Facebook will also give you a 5% discount code for my online store! :) I'm so bad about posting on dA now (I'm sorry!!) because tumblr has that queued posts system that makes it much easier for me to stay active. I'm told that this is also a paid dA member feature now too, so I'll have to look into that.

You might also notice I've also added a link to my Twitch.TV account, which will have the most recent broadcast available for viewing. I stream every week around 9pm PST on Tuesdays, and I try very hard not to cancel if at all avoidable. If you have time, please drop by and say hello! If you subscribe to my account on Twitch, you will get email updates whenever I start streaming, so you won't have to check for announcements. I'm also looking into learning how to edit videos and make speedpaints, so you can watch my progress. I've got a lot of videos saved up now so something's gotta be good!

I think that's it for now!

Again, thank you everyone ; w ; I'm so humbled by all the positive response I get and I'm very grateful to each and every person that follows me! I will do my best to keep drawing and keep posting and hope that you guys will like my future works too. ; w ;

Hello everyone~

My goal this year is to try to draw as much as possible and experiment, without worrying about how finished or polished something looks. This is a really big weakness of mine because I always feel like I shouldn't post unfinished or abandoned works, but the more open I can be about myself to the rest of the world, the better person I feel I can become. However I know a lot of people view my deviantART gallery as an informal portfolio, so I will be posting most of my work on tumblr: (link here)! I also livestream every week (livestream link here) on Tuesdays, starting 9pm PST and usually running until midnight, although sometimes I end an hour earlier or stay three hours longer...

I've also been trying to let myself buy things and use things that I think are "too nice" for me -- clothes, shoes, but also most importantly, sketchbooks! I always hesitate to buy nice clothes or draw in nice sketchbooks because I feel like I will ruin them, but I shouldn't tell myself that! I hope to really focus on self improvement this year.

Chinese New Year is this weekend! Happy year of the snake!

custom button service!

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 28, 2012, 5:02 PM
Hi guys!

It seems like from this entry that enough people would be able to use this service so I got a store page put up! Pricing starts at $10 for 24 buttons, with up to 24 different designs! 1.25" diameter buttons with a sturdy metallic backing and glossy mylar cover.


SMALL-RUN CUSTOM BUTTONS 
finni.storenvy.com


This service is intended for small, independent artist alley artists who would like to test the waters and have their artwork printed on a new medium. It is NOT meant for mass-production. Please note that I may inquire for proof that you drew the images you submitted if things look suspicious, and I will not make any buttons for people who are using copyrighted logos, emblems, or symbols.

Additionally: YES, you can pick up buttons from me if you'd like to make a last minute order for Sakura-Con in Seattle, WA. I will be able to take orders from people who get their images submitted by Tuesday, April 3rd. The Sakura-Con pickup shipping option will disappear afterwards.

Spread the word if you think you know someone who would like to have custom buttons made!

EDIT: To clarify, this is a SERVICE for other artists who would like their own artwork made into buttons. This is not a custom button order to commission me to draw images for you. Thanks!

low-run custom button service?

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 27, 2012, 3:08 PM
Hi guys!

So I've gotten a lot of questions before about making buttons and I know for a lot of artists who are just starting out, there's almost no resource for making just 2 or 10 of each design without buying your own machine.

Just testing the waters here: Would anyone be interested if I could provide a low-run custom button service?? Basically it would be a service for AA folks with a maximum order size of 120 buttons, minimum order 24 buttons, but an unlimited number of different designs in every order. Essentially, it would be something like moo.com, but with buttons! 1.25" only. Price wise, it would range from about $10 for 24 buttons, and around $40 for 120.

I might also be able to bring the buttons to con if we're going to attend the same ones, to save a little on shipping~

Let me know if anyone thinks this might be something they're interested in!

PacSet Tours to Japan!!

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 10, 2012, 4:54 PM


If you've ever been on a "traditional" Japanese tour, as a fan of Japanese pop-culture and media, you'll find that free time is very limited and the tourist stops don't pique your interest. I wish my first trip to Japan was Evan's tour, seriously!! He's lived in Japan for many years, so he knows where all the locals hang and where the really good stuff is at, and he's worked as a Japanese translator as well as with the Japanese Tourism Organization, so he knows his stuff!

And no, I was not paid a cent to make this advertisement.

I know this is a ton of text but if you guys would take the time to read it and maybe pass it on to friends who might be interested, I would appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.

Thanks so much for your time!!

Happy (Chinese) New Year!

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 23, 2012, 11:12 AM
Finally an update to my journal! Happy (Chinese) New Year of the Dragon!!
Thanks for people who came by and said hi at ALA! It was a last minute table setup for Saturday/Sunday only but I had a great time. :>

I've set up a tentative schedule below for my conventions this year, though I will add more as they get confirmed. I'm hoping I can attend Otakon and New York Anime Festival again! In more convention news, I'm officially an artist this year for both FanimeCon in San Jose, CA and A-Kon in Dallas, TX so I've been working hard making artwork for these cons and hope you guys will see them around when May rolls around!

There's two artbooks coming out this year as well with my work in it, and one of them is currently up for funding on Kickstarter: Anime Angels. I have one exclusive illustration featured in that book, so I'll post some teaser images later. 8D

My biggest resolution for this year? DRAW MORE for myself!! I've been busy with my workload and drawing for clients and to pay the rent, but I really ought to kick my ass into gear and do more personal drawings! I want to fanart all of my favorite things and draw more originals! I'd also love to lose 10 pounds but you know, don't want to get overzealous here.....

Thank you to all of my watchers and viewers for sticking it out with me and always commenting and faving my stuff. I read every single one!! I've been trying hard to respond to more comments but it's just not possible to write a reply to everyone, so if you have a question that needs a response, please feel free to note me (politely) and I'll get back to you. (:

You guys I had such a blast in NYC this weekend for New York Anime Festival, thanks to EVERYONE for making the weekend amazing and so much fun! I hope I can make it out there again next year and explore more of the city and eat more DELICIOUS GOOD FOOD. I only got to see the show floor of NYCC for about 30 minutes, but I did walk away with a gorgeous free Zelda T-shirt from Nintendo!!

I've also made a few tumblr posts with photos from my trip!
Sightseeing: artbyfinni.tumblr.com/post/116…
Food (part 1): artbyfinni.tumblr.com/post/116…
Food (part 2): artbyfinni.tumblr.com/post/116…

They say New Yorkers are rude assholes, but that was SO NOT TRUE! I met so many super nice people and so many enthusiastic TWEWY and Zelda fans, I'm so happy I might burst *__*...

Ok now back to work!

Been working on a lot of things lately! Thank you so much everyone for your support on my new bags, everybody seems to like them a lot!

I've picked up a few contract jobs so I'm definitely getting busy, but coming up soon is New York Anime Festival! I really want to make a lot of new things for this con, since it will be my first time traveling to New York (since I was 9 years old, when I went on a family visit with my daddy).

If all things go well, I hope to be reintroducing my Pokemon Trainer twins Terri and Torrin in a slightly new way sometime in the near future~ I'm so overwhelmed by how much love I've been getting from these two (including an awesome Terri cosplayer Lynah!!) so I really hope I don't disappoint! :love:

UPDATE: 8/9/11
SO this awesome girl I know who goes by the name of setsuna22 is having a big sale on her con merchandise to try and get a nice birthday present for herself. : ) I know everybody likes birthday presents, so please wander over to her page here and take a look! Thanks~

P.S. I have several of her prints and magnets and they are gorgeous. <3 Just in case for some reason you were doubing the quality of her stuff!

UPDATE: 8/3/11
Guys I'm so grateful for all the love from Otakon! It was a crazy ride, roomed with lots of new and old friends, had a blast putting derp eyes on everything and laughing until 2am in the morning, and thank you to everyone who dropped by and said hi, introduced themselves, or bought something! Thank you so much!! I'm so embarrassed when people walk by telling me they got a poster from me last year and it's hanging in a frame on their wall >o<!!

As a thank you, I'm doing a huge giveaway on tumblr!

Like, tons of free posters and button sets, what? Free shipping all around the world too? Oh god.

Thanks to everyone for coming out and saying hi at Anime Expo 2011!! I'm truly humbled by the people who've approached me and told me how long they've been following my work and I'm so glad more people than usual came up and introduced themselves to me! Now I know some faces behind those usernames. : ) I even got a real shiny Umbreon in my Pokemon game in exchange for a Tronbreon poster! (thanks alicieux <3)

A lot of people asked me for an online store or if I sell prints online, so I'm trying to set something up. In the meantime, feel free to note me on dA or send me an email at finni[AT]fourthewin[DOT]org with a link to my dA page of whatever you'd like to purchase.

Back from steaming hot Texas! I... don't think I've ever had an experience quite like when I walked a few blocks in Texan heat and I was in pain because I wore a pair of heels and my toes started sweating so much that I couldn't stand straight........... slipping in my shoes......

Thanks to everyone for stopping by and so sorry we ran out of bags + business cards...
For those of you who picked up my card but were really looking for artwork by my awesome table partner missypena, please visit her work by clicking on any of the following dutch bunnies:

_________________________________________

Hi guys, I've been SO BAD at updating the last few months!

What's been going on: well, I've been pounded in the lab and have been working 40-50 hour weeks, on top of classes and also a part-time job I picked up back in June '10 doing graphic design! As a lot of you came by and noted on my page that I attended Anime Los Angeles in LA during January and flew all the way out to Washington DC for Katsucon in February! I should have announced that on my page but... well... uh..... ok yeah I don't have any excuses.

So I figure I should announce the rest of my con schedule for this year!

:bulletblue: SakuraCon (April 22-24, 2011) in Seattle, WA
:bulletblue: Fanime (May 27-30, 2011) in San Jose, CA
:bulletblue: A-Kon (June 10-12, 2011) in Dallas, TX
:bulletblue: Anime Expo (July 1-4, 2011) in Los Angeles, CA
:bulletblue: San Diego Comic-Con (July 21-24, 2011) in San Diego, CA -- as an attendee, most likely! My favorite con of the year <3
:bulletblue: Otakon (July 29-31, 2011) in Baltimore, MD

I hope to also be able to attend New York Anime Festival in October as well~
Aaaand by the end of all that, I expect to be a walking zombie.

There are a couple of surprises on the art front from me in the coming months, but I can't say or show anything yet! FFFF....
I've also entered in the mascot contest again for Sakuracon, so I'll find out at the end of April whether I placed or not!

Also very exciting: I'm going to be graduating this year, finally! *__* this means more art from me after I graduate, and then the horrible reality of trying to find a real job in the real world..... so to prepare, I'm going about updating my website/portfolio (lol, last updated in 2008...) and trying to churn out a couple of more technical pieces to show off my abilities.

In the meantime, I'll try to draw some non work-related things in whatever free time I have (not much, lolz...) so I have something to post here! Thank you so much to everyone who follows my work and comments on my submissions.... it really means a lot to me to see really thoughtful comments in my inbox, even if I don't respond very regularly. I do read everything that gets posted though. <3

To say thanks, I'm going to try to put together a tutorial sometime in the next few months!
What kind of digital media tutorial would you guys like to see from me most? Coloring tutorial? Lineart tutorial? .... basic drawing tutorial?
I'm not a trained professional by any means but I think making a new tutorial would be a nice way of giving back for all the nice things I've received from this community in the past few years.  

Let me know what you guys would like to see! Thanks!

-Finni

:bulletyellow: www.FOURTHEWIN.org! :bulletyellow:
On the internet, it's always difficult to keep your images only available in places that you want. If it goes up on the web, it's pretty likely that it's going to get reposted or redistributed in some way digitally. When I was much younger, I would get angry if someone else would post my image on their Photobucket or on MySpace but really, it's inevitable. What harm are they bringing me, anyways?

:bulletblue: FINNI'S FANART USE POLICY
Feel free to use my work for any personal reason. If you want to set it as your desktop wallpaper, post it on your journal/blog/site, go ahead. If you want to edit it into icons or avatars or site banners, I'm even okay with that. I would highly appreciate being notified and credited somewhere on your page but I understand that's a luxury.


What's NOT okay:
:bulletblue: DO NOT use my Ragnarok Online fanart for private servers. I play iRO and do not want to appear affiliated with any pirated server, especially since many of the iRO GMs know me and recognize my work.
:bulletblue: DO NOT use any of my work to gain profit.

This brings me to my point of "art theft".
When someone takes your work and reposts it on their website, that's not theft to me; especially if they leave all my watermarks on. Sometimes people edit out my watermarks and try to claim the artwork as their own, which is hurtful and easily dealt with, but don't be a retard and put my work with the watermarks edited out into your portfolio for a job interview or something. That's just your own stupidity that will backfire on you.

The other unfortunately too common scenario is the redistribution of fanart on printed products being sold in places like Chinatown or on Ebay. I've come across my own artwork for sale in little stationary shops, and it's kind of unnerving. Currently there are two sellers on Ebay making money off my Avatar fanart.

That's NOT okay.

I can't be scouring the internet all the time for these things so I really appreciate when people comment and let me know that this kind of shit is going on (special shoutout to Mana-Scienziato). If anyone sees someone trying to sell my work, please contact me with a comment or a note (or for a speedier response, email me at finni [at] fourthewin.org)

Now with my current scenario, Ebay seems to be unresponsive and the sellers still have their T-shirts for sale. Since this is fan art, I don't own the copyrights to the characters but like any intellectual work, I do own the rights to the image. I've contacted the sellers and contacted Ebay's copyright violation staff to remove the listing and/or ban these users.

I don't want to post direct links to the listings in case they do comply and remove everything in a timely manner, but it's been 24 hours since my report was filed and there's been no change.

If anyone has any advice on this situation and/or how to speed up the process and get these people in trouble, please let me know. I'd really appreciate it.

EDIT: 36 hours after the initial request, the sellers took down the listings. So it turns out that Ebay does very little to help with copyright violations, but threatening to pursue legal action on the sellers while stating how my work is protected under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act probably helped the intimidation factor. The fact that one of the sellers edited out my watermark in order to sell the image on T-shirts probably made him/her conscious that he was violating some sort of law.

Thanks for the advice and the kind words, everyone!
This is why I don't like to post links and just recruit others to rampage for me, unless the situation can be resolved quietly and between involved parties only.

-Finni
