Galacon 2012 Guide art/poster by Rautakoura Galacon 2012 Guide art/poster by Rautakoura
Now that Galacon is behind us, I'll post some stuffs I made for the it, starting with the guide cover/poster. Would you believe I made this in one sitting? The printing service we used issued a new, danger close deadline, and I had to rush it to get it done before going on a little trip with my friends. Took around 20 hours, and as I said, in one sitting :>. Was pretty brutal, had to bolt my wrist back on a few times, the bugger just fell off all the time. I'm kinda happy with how it came out, wasn't easy fitting so many characters. The characters are OC's for the organizers, donators and guests of honor, and of course our Galacon mascots, Canni, Sani and Wachmann.

since I done a Vac. Forming Mould for the Heads and have the Cut Patterns in CAD it takes 6-7 Days to make a complete suit.

First: thank you for this piece of art :>

It looks great and its interesting to explore the whole ponys and the interactions on the pic. Some great jokes there xD

Then i am completely amazed ybout how my OC looks like. You make Swing Tune looks like he looks in my opinion (The gray one with the black hat and west). Even his expression - thank you

Also it gives me lots of questions about who are the OCs there ...

You're welcome!

Aye, was pretty fun trying to come up with stuff to make the picture more interesting, didn't want them just standing there looking at the viewer boringly. =P

Ach, I'm glad you like it then! At least one happy customer.

Hrmm, quite a lot of them didn't actually have any names when the reference material was shown to me. Never really got told anything about them :F.

Why communicate when you can WATCH PICTURES OF KITTIES IN THE INTERNET

OR EVEN BETTER, PONIES

Aye, let's see if it becomes the official Galacon catchphrase. A devious marketing ploy from the organizers, it was after all made by John Joseco.

One 20-hrs-go? Oh lawd!

Thanks for all your help, art and attendance. I was merely a guard dude over there, but I know the grand staff, so let me tell you, they love you and are grateful.
Plus, many have been telling how cool of a guy you are to talk to. I missed out on that chance, but maybe I get one somewhen else.

Next up, we make a 50 character poster in 30 hours! FOR REALS

Dude, don't underrate yourself, you guys were vital at keeping things going smoothly. The line for the dealers room for example, it would have been pure chaos if you guys hadn't been there keeping the flow in check. And the feeling is mutual, I'm really grateful for the chance to work for the con, and for putting up with my inane babblings.
Hurm, people are complimenting me behind my back? WHERE IS THIS WORLD GOING TO ಠ_ಠ
Aye, I can be pretty mellow, provided there is a steady supply of pony stuff nearby. Being at the con that was a given. If something were to happen to that supply though... Out comes the hockey mask and the chainsaw.
I'm up for a chat anytime, if people really want to hear my gibberish. If all else fails, hopefully at the next Galacon then.

Wait, how do you pronounce your nickname?

Raw-tah-cowra... nah, that doesn't sound right.

And I still have to comment to another one of your posts just to make your life mis- er, more fulfilling?

Ah, that's why it's hard to pronounce if you don't speak Finnish, it's pronounced exactly as it's written. Pretty much no intonation or anything else like that, and with a rolling r. I'm not really sure if it's actually possible to explain it in text form! =P

Well, there are a lot of people on the Internet... probably in the billions. Perhaps he couldn't find you?

~Once lost but now found, our great artist delivered. He (or she) drew great art-- a successful endeavor.

...Why the heck did I write two lines that rhymed at the end? I am so out of it today...

Aye, sarcasm aside, true enough =P. Though truth to be told I'm not sure if I recognize him, pretty sure I will if he tells me where he knows me from.

That was... Beatiful. Pure art. ಥ_ಥ

He's obviously Slenderman. He's stalking you, and nothing can save you now.

I just realized something. 'Delivered' and 'endeavor' don't rhyme. Also, I agree: It is beatiful (that moment where a typo works for the Original Poster). I just beat my brain for derping.

That song sums up the 'derp'.

WAY OFF TOPIC
vvvvvvvvvvvvv


It plays in my head every time I go on 32 kill streaks with any pistol on my support (infinite ammo ftw) class in BF3. 64 player servers are hilarious, mostly due to the weak fools who thought they could chase me with their little girly 200-bullet extended mag LMGs.

If you do remotely good with any weapon on that game, people instantly accuse you of using assisted aiming or some other mod. Funny as hell.

Haha, pretty appropriate if you can dominate people with just a pistol. And aye, I know the feeling. Played CoD Mw2 when it came out, couldn't play a game without being called a cheater.
