Oh hey. I'm Ambur. I'm 21 years old as of April 16th and I'm a sophomore in college. I love creating things and being hands on. I do a lot of fan art. Mostly video games. I'm way better at animals and objects than I am at humans and people shaped creatures. Working on it though. I love doing Pokemon as well.


Contest, Social Media, and Features

Mon Apr 8, 2013, 9:29 PM

Just a few little updates!


First thing is first,I have recently created a twitter specifically for my art. That's right! I'm also offering free features as usual so just follow me on twitter and send me a message either there or here and I'll feature your work!

I'll also am going to do an "Artist Problems" project with trending Hashtags on my twitter. That means when there is a trending hashtag, for example #Icantstandwhen, I might post a tweet saying " #Icantstandwhen my acrylic paint dries before I'm done using it. #artistproblems" It'll be loads of fun and I'm sure a lot of you can relate.

Tumblr URL Change

I  decided to change my tumblr URL from theartofcosplay to Tacoroachart. I feel like it was weird that I had all of these social media accounts under Tacoroach Art but then my tumblr was theartofcosplay. No worries though! My tumblr will still feature cosplay stuff even though cosplay is out of the URL name.

I also recently changed the layout of my tumblr to match my Deviantart theme. If you haven't checked out my tumblr, I advise you do!I Especially, if you are an artist! I post a lot of different artist's work that I find around tumblr and also helpful tutorials that I stumble upon as well. Resources galore!!

And of course, if you send me a note or ask asking to be featured I can definitely do that! ;D


So, I promised a Contest to be held right after my giveaway ended and it still hasn't been  put up yet. Well, I'm still going to hold it, it's just things have been a little hectic lately(I got a job!!) so I haven't hammered out all the details. It'll be up soon though!! I promise!

Potatoes and Molasses by tacoroach
Potatoes and Molasses
A print that I did for Sabakon 2015. Will be available shortly in my Etsy Store.

Still getting used to digital media. I spent a lot of time on this, but in the end it was a lot of fun!
Skin and Bone by tacoroach
Skin and Bone
A project done for my Intro to Sculpture class. Our assignment was to make a structure out of metal rod and cover the structure in some sort of "skin". It must be abstract.

The materials I used for my 'skin' were wonderflex(lighter material) and monster clay(darker material). My concept was to do an abstract piece with loose references to skin and bones. The lighter material used is reference to the bone and the darker is referring to skin. This is a play on the assignment since the metal structure is the bone of the piece and the 'skin and bone' is actually the skin itself.
Chimera by tacoroach
Sculpture that I made for my final assignment of my Intro to Sculpture class. We were assigned to use three animals and combine them. The animals I used were bat, ram, and moth. The wings of a bat, the horns of the ram, and the body of a moth.

Overall, it was my favourite project of the semester and I had a lot of fun with it. I learned a lot of skills and I hope to utilize them in the future.
