Axent Wear Update by yuumei
Axent Wear Update

Hi everyone,

Sorry I haven’t been posting a lot of new drawings lately. As many of you know, I’ve been very busy working on these cat ear headphones (

It’s my first time taking on a project of this nature and size, and it has been both absolutely amazing as well as overwhelmingly stressful. Both my co-founder and I have been dealing with new challenges that we never expected to experience. We have made first time mistakes and we are working things through. I hope everyone will be supportive and understanding of our situation as my co-founder and I resolve our differences peacefully.

In the mean time, I have been interviewing various product designers, audio engineers, and manufacturing experts in preparation for making the headphones a reality. I’m in close contact with a number of successful Silicon Valley consumer electronics executives and ready to ramp up to production and delivery as soon as I work out a few things with my co-founder.

Delivering these headphones remains my duty to the Axent Wear backers and my followers who have supported me for more than a decade. Thank you all so much for your continued patience, understanding, and support.

Aod Demo2 by yuumeiAOD Demo3 by yuumei

Hey Guys! I’ll be giving a live coloring and shading demo at Anime on Display (AOD) this Jan 31-Feb 1 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel of the San Francisco Airport. 
My panel will be on Sunday 11 AM in room event 4, and I’ll be at Dealer’s Booth S3 the entire weekend!

I’ll also be taking audience requests for specific drawing techniques that they want to learn! This will be my first live demo event and I must say I’m kind of nervous but I’m happy to meet everyone again after being away for so long!

I hope to see you there!

Finally finished the drawing I started months ago!

In other news, I will be giving a live coloring and shading demo and tutorial at Anime on Display (AOD) this January 31-February 1 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel of the San Francisco Airport. My live demo panel will be on Sunday 11 AM in room event 4. I'll also be taking audience requests for specific drawing techniques that they want to learn!…

It'll be my first live demo ever and I hope everyone will enjoy it!

The rest of the time I'll be in the dealer's room at booth S3 with prints, books, and more! Feel free to come by and ask any questions about drawing techniques or just chit chat! :D

With You

Something I drew months ago before all the headphones stuff took away my free time. 

This was a gift for my SO, inspired by our trip to the Monterey Bar Aquarium. 

There are plenty of fish in the sea
But you’re the only one for me

My Axent Wear co-founder won't agree with me on what to update the backers or even let me post an official update at all, so I'll just say it here, we're still working on the headphones, but we're sorting through some stuff slowly but surely.

And while I continue to wait on other people to reply, I worked on my drawings a bit more.

Everything about your art is amazing. You are one of my absolute favorites! And I know you get asked this a lot, and I wouldn't blame you if you didn't answer, which is fine, but I'm gonna throw it out there anyways; what happened to Fisheye Placebo?

Hello! I see that you have a huge following here on dA, and the good news is, there's a new social media platform that works best if you have a big audience: more interaction (likes,views,comments,shares) incurred as you post your original content means more money (you get paid on a daily basis!)

You can actually post your art on ... it works like facebook, twitter and instagram, only that Tsu pays you for your posts!

Money aside, it's also where you can build and increase your fanbase faster than any sites. Based on my experience, I posted five of my artworks and it got more than 1000 views in just one day... and almost 100 people were already following me! (check out my arts so you can see that my works are actually lame compared to yours. so i can imagine you get MORE than i got. Real talk.) ^^;

To join, just use either of the following shortcodes to get yourself started:
◆ nochiuro17
◆ chicharrria

Just let me know if you're on Tsu so I can give you a shoutout and get more support! :eager:

Thanks for reading~
I look forward for you joining in the network. :heart:
