Because I neglected to get images of each of the larger pieces I did last school year, here's a run-down of things:

Crocheted Paper -- for Studio (I) 'Make an object out of 100 identical objects.' I used 100 identical strips of paper :P The writing says 'paper ink yarn' over and over again.

Cathedral -- for Perspective class. We were to replicate the image we were given of the Sistine Chapel. SUCKED, omg. Different grades of pencil.

Life in Chalk -- followed by other various bits and pieces, namely warm up excersises for Figure Drawing I (same lady, pencil; same lady, playing with charcoal and coloured chalks; same lady, pencil sketches; different lady, warm-up poses, pencil; that lady again, pencil; man, charcoal practice; man again, coloured chalks)... I can at least say I did get a lot of figure drawing practice -- this isn't even half of what I managed to get done in this particular class. The 1- and 5-minute warm ups were always my favorite -- we were forced to move to the next pose each time our time was up.

Tetris -- you've seen a low-quality version of this one before, but here's a better one. With the tips of my feet in the picture so you got a sense of how big it actually is -- mid-term for Studio (I). 'Recreate or create a new piece that uses a theme/excersise from the first part of the year' -- Self-portrait, diagram of a routine (though it is slightly messed up), fractal geometry. Eleven hours of work, straight through. Marker and graded pencils.

Abuse Diagram -- the 2-D drawing of the 3-D piece I've shown before. This is what I was working on the night before it was due :P Ink and prismacolour marker, 3-D Design -- 'Create a piece that represents a social issue.'

Sugar Rush -- last minute thrown-together piece for portfolio review. Odds and ends... basically how I sustained myself for the entire week before portfolio deadline. Days and nights without sleep and loads and loads of sugar, sodas and odd things that came out of my head that I ran with. Though sugar does make me sleepy, I don't know how I managed to stay up for days at a time to finish that damn thing. Copper wire, thread, buttons, sequins, transparent seed beads and a 'natural sugar' packet. (Oooooh, I love that kind of sugar!)

Figure Lying Down -- my best figure drawing piece ever. Albert hardly ever said anything to me while I was working on it until the feet, which he helped me with a great deal. Though I can't see worth crap, he spoke of the body in a way I could see mentally and then convert to paper. Pencil on bristol vellum (if you can't get the stuff, don't take his class -- that's all you use).

Fern Column -- coloured pencil over watercolours on marbled paper. The 2-D piece to accompany the 3-D final column project.

There we are, then! Don't say I never gave you anything :P

Because I'm silly I'm going to post all of my drawings from Imagery for Children that I've not yet posted as scans. Other than two, one of which I stupidly deleted and one of which won't scan properly.

Christmas Tree -- the little shepherdess and her cheeky sheep... crow quill nib, speedball black acrylic ink -- done on thin charcoal paper.

Snow Monster -- the little shepherdess out in the snow (response to Snow Shepherdess... of which I stupidly deleted). Crow quill nib, black acrylic ink, washed with watered down speedball black acrylic ink. Watercolour paper.

...that's a branch with dried leaves sticking out of the monster's mouth, btw, to simulate fire being breathed onto the snow sheep :P

Stippled tiger of DOOM -- stippling is the use of a bunch of little dots to create a larger image. I'm insane for liking the technique as it takes forever. I don't have forever.

Close-up of the tiger's face just so you can see how insane I really am. Crow quill nib, speedball black acrylic ink -- strathmore illustration board, 8.5"x11".

Something I'm working on for the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. Kinda large (beware). Not sure if I'll ever have time to actually finish it, though. Crow quill nib, speedball acrylic inks in black and white. 8.5"x11" burgandy Mi-Teintes paper by Canson.

30% view. 70% done. Coming along.

I know it's large... :x

I'm still working on that HUGE image. I'm tired of hearing about Michael Jackson. I'm doing my best to stay away from those Doctor Who spoilers on [livejournal.com profile] doctorwho since I've only seen up to episode seven. I'm doing my very best to get enough sleep (and failing horribly, it seems). And I'm quite obsessed with both spinning wool into yarn and playing Cave Story.

I want a set of double-ended knitting needles -- I can't find my old ones :\

...kinda need to make a new layout for M-C.com, too. I know what I want for it, but I can't seem to *DO* it. Because I'm digitally moved to *paint* and I want it to be sketchy, like it was done with heavy inks. Bah :\

Bigger image here. )

Remember, folks -- this is mouse-drawn. I've spent a total of about ten hours on this so far. It's 4000x3000 pixels. No joke. Each one of those rocks is hand drawn with the mouse, too.

No new update for the watercolour painting, just a little digital piece I'm working on -- it's 4000px by 3000px. For the OekakiCentral contest going on right now.

Mum told me to have the villainous beast(s) be attack geese. I'm thinking about it.

In other news, M-C.com is down. I don't know when it will be back up, my host is... gone? oO; And I hope to get the watercolour finished by the end of the week. Here's hoping.
