Hi all! Just letting you guys know what I've been up to lately. I'm working on my senior project (eek, I'm graduating!!) and it's been a lot of fun. Here's a sneak peek at some of the characters of my project.

Fireflies

Quick painting done in about 1 hour 30 minutes just to get some portrait practice and more experience in Corel Painter. Tweaked a tad in the end in Photoshop.

Used photo reference while listening mainly to Fireflies by Owl City.

Chicago Trip Pt. 4 (SO MUCH STUFF GOING ON!!!)

Eegads I'm inundated in work!! I'll be posting new stuff once I get them scanned, but for now, more things from my Chicago trip.

This adorable little girl was singing and dancing to herself in downtown Evanston outside of some shops.

Spied on the people at Borders. The two gentlemen on the right were in a heated go match.

Chicago Trip Pt. 3

School's insane...yet I find myself more driven than ever. It's a crazy feeling.

More portrait practice from unwary students in classes I sat in on.

My amazing boyfriend.

Chicago Trip Pt. 2

Goodness, the new term's gone off to a crazy start, haha. Five classes in three consecutive days is a bit much for me, but I'm just gonna have to truck on through!

Sat in on some of my boyfriend's classes in Chicago. I wound up doing a lot of portrait studies, which was awesome practice.



In response to Nophantomsallowed: there's always a bit of grueling/boring classwork, but for the most part the projects are pretty fun. In the lower terms (1-3ish) you're still building on foundation skills, generally speaking. Once you get to the mid/upper terms (4-8), you get to have a hand in choosing what you want to do. Use those assignments as opportunities to really have fun and go all out!

Chicago Trip Pt. 1

Yes, I'm alive!! I'm finally back and starting a new semester at school. Summer term...ew. But can't be helped. Here are some sketches I did of people waiting at the LAX terminal back in April. I was on my way to Chicago!!


And in response to Nophantomsallowed's question: I wouldn't necessarily call Art Center "torture," but it IS very intensive and you have to be serious about your education and willing to work long hours. Some students recommend getting your GE's out of the way at a community college first. If you do, make sure you contact Art Center and confirm that the classes you're taking at the CC/JC will transfer to Art Center. Many classes don't. Hope that helps! Good luck!

Portrait Painting

Wow, so it had been almost two years since I'd touched oil paints, and I'd forgotten how awesome they could be. I didn't miss the toxicity though. I'm having a blast in the portrait painting class I'm taking, and I've discovered that I'm not half bad!! :D I'll post more of these when I get the chance.

Week 5's in-class portrait, 5 hours

Week 7 (last week's) in-class portrait, 3 hours
