Finished, for now. Time to move to the next section.
Prang watercolours with Winsor and Newton process black + Van Gogh burnt umber. On T.H.Saunders 140lb hot press watercolour paper. 9.5"x5"
I seriously need to refine my children-sketching abilities. Heck, people in general, I need to get better at drawing people.
Next semester's task .-.
The cosmic energies should be starting to move in your direction when it comes to social and communication matters, and you should soon be able to figure out a new way to solve an old problem. Some issues that have been causing you a certain amount of anxiety could finally be starting to ease up a bit, and your intuition ought to be able to serve you very well right now.
Ah, yes. Working on my illustration project -- little boy sleeping! And, omg, tiny hairs by a tiny little 10/0 brush! Individual tiny little black hairs on that boy's head xx;
Tiny little fingers!
Its good to be back in watercolours again.
I don't know how many times I've poked myself with the needle felting tool with these. And they're tiny, really. The, uh, sheep and teddy bear, not the needle felting tools. But they're small, too.
Background noise? Oh, that's a coloured pencil piece I started at the beginning of November thinking I'd finish it easily. Whoops. Reindeer :x
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
For some odd reason I keep relating my illustration project to theevilstellie and her son Xander :P
Crappy photo of my fingers and the needle felted sheepie....
I've started knitting up that orange and brown yarn. Definitely harsh on one's fingers, that's for sure. It'll turn out an awesome grocery napsack, though. The ball of light orange is that bit Chris had spun and I traded out some of my thin yarn for.... And that's my orange book bag on the floor. Yes, I have a love for the colour orange, bite me :P
Old scrap that I don't think I ever posted.... Another old scrap that resides in the large sketchbook. I've dedicated that one to centaurs only... I think I posted one of them a while back ago, but she's over a year old, now.
Yay, all done. Time for more work.
I've been having some of the most fucked-up dreams lately. And the one from last night... had Seven in it. And she fell down for some odd reason and was just out cold. And then there was Eight... and she was in PJs holding Vanilla (her rabbit) wearing some weird evil-looking bunny slippers. She was half asleep and she wanted to know what was wrong with Seven and kept saying it was her fault.
I owe it all to my horribly sun-blistered shoulders -- they're hell to sleep on, I swear. It's even worse when Lint (my fluffy kitty) decides to claw me in the middle of the night right on the most blistered part.
