HOLY SHIT GUAIZ I GOT A LEGIT ILLUSTRATION JOB. I'M ILLUSTRATING A COMIC ABOUT A GIRL WHO HUNTS TIGERS. AUGH. AND I WON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT RENT THIS SUMMER BECAUSE I'M GETTING A SWEET DOWN-PAYMENT. YESSSSSS.
I love this life. I love other aspects of this life, too, but back to the point. While I was at school I DID generate some art, if of dubious quality.
This is one half of a late figure drawing assignment from the fall. So many hours! I remember just poring over this in my dorm in late november, and I was frustrated with one of the guys in my life at the time. Funny story, for my final portfolio I ended up just giving him a sketch book and I totes got an A. Not gonna happen EVER again XD I was obsessed with Useful Chamber by The Dirty Projectors while I was working on this.
This is the other half of that drawing, sans the photoshopping.
I should be working instead of this blog. Anyway, this was my last minute drawing final, which brazenly features my roommate's face. Not proud of it, and when I tried to do the Byzantine thing it just wound up being Baroque. Those are speech bubbles, and the sketch looks way better. Oh well.
Yay, shitty photoshop jobs! During our intro to figure the model didn't show up, so
Reedy (our professor) made us circle up into groups to draw each other's portraits. I knew the drill, having taken figure the previous semester. This was my best likeness.
Oil pastels! Working on this during class with the actual still life was, for some reason, not working for me, but working from a photograph did. It took forever for me to overcome my fear of covering the paper with oil.
Let's see if I properly resized these bitches.
