o I've been back at university for a week now! It was quite the long drive yet again, but I'm happy that I stopped in Winston-Salem, NC to see The Hobbit for a third time in IMAX 3D *-* The theater was so huge and clean and beautiful and I'm pretty sure the sound made me go temporarily deaf, but it was totally worth it haha~ It's kind of odd though since it felt like I never really left to begin with; once my roommates and friends started getting back, it was like we had just left for a weekend or something, and meanwhile, it was six weeks otl ;;
ut I've got some wonderful classes so far! I finally made it into my Intro to Illustration class, so I'm super excited for my projects. My professor is also an agent, so I think it's neat that he's going to teach us some of the business side of the industry as well. And we can draw in whatever style we want, and he took into consideration how we draw and what our strengths are before deciding on what we should do for our first assignment. So far, we just have to illustrate "fears" as a magazine cover, or "lifestyle" for an editorial-style illustration. I've gone with a throne room/beheading scene and camping, so I'll get to see on Monday what I get to complete for critique.
'm also taking Advanced Survey of Computer Art Applications course, and also, amazingly, my professor is allowing us to illustrate however we want (: As long as you can impress him with your project, you'll do well. As long as you're willing to try, you'll do well. I'm looking forward to it; right now we're working in Illustrator, and we finish the quarter with Maya and web page design.A
nd I have Survey of Western Art II. Not much to say there haha~ My professor seems like a nice guy, so I'm hoping that he'll make disdain of art history shrink.T
here's some contests coming up that I'd like to enter, as well as try to get work ready for my portfolio for some internships. I'd prefer getting an internship over the summer, so it'd be nice if I could get one (:
s for current art, I'm part of a Tolkien fan book, so I've got that project, as well as concept art for an animated Hobbit film once I get more details. And I've got classwork. And some sketches that I'm working on. And an art trade. The list never ends haha~
I think this will be a nice quarter, and that I can get some quality art done (◕‿◕✿)
And check out this beautiful work from my friend:
