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.
Doodle in my sketchbook -- red RSVP pen and black size 01 and 08 sakura micron pens.
Hard to believe that I'll be 21 in thirteen days.... It'll be just like when I turned 18 -- nothing special, just another day older. Sure, I'll be able to legally buy booze AND tobacco, but... the only people I'd be buying either for would be my parents for special occassions and/or gifts.
Waiting for my wool to finish drying, lalala.
Black and red ball point pens, yay. Sketchbook fodder from March-ish, taken and inked proper instead of left to rot in simple sketchy light pencil work. I got bored... nothing stays 'sketchy' in my sketchbook for too long.
From this sketch (instead of the original one) I can see that, even though tule(sp? I don't use the stuff) would be just dandy as part of the skirt... I think that a pair of high-ruff pantaloons would work better in this piece. Because I've always wanted to make a pair, anyway :D
P.S. Seven/La'Wran will eventually kill me, of course, but I'll run away when that time comes.
1. sketchbook drivel; last unicorn and the red bull -- will be personal project for the upcoming break (watercolours on illustration board) -- some sort of inking pen over non-photo blue pencil; prismacolor pencil overlay
2. concept: 50/50 -- turned out great! craft: 50/50 -- nice and clean (1/2 late x2 -10) 90/100 B; 2-D Design Concepts homework. Create a piece of work using three 'textures', any way you like. Base it upon the animal you choose from the bowl (got horse). Materials: Page 924 (Photo-Photographers) from the Richmond-Metro 2005 yellow pages; yellow and orange highlighters, black micron inkpen, white gel pen, Paris-France from 1972 National Geographic and the hair of a girl studying in said city from said National Geographic.
As far as the piece I was working on last night/this morning, it has been turned in. We shall never speak of it again.
What I'm currently working on. (Sketchbook fodder.)
1. line work for 2-D design; 2. my first attempt at using Adobe Illustrator CS (if anyone has tutorials, please direct me to them!); 3. column piece, 2-D planning; 4. column piece, 3-D planning; 5. alternate 3-D column plans
Not so very scrappies:
Since I've last updated this, I've done the following:
* been accepted into VCU's sculpture department for Fall 2005
* 2- and 3-D column pieces have moved onwards to the final judging round. Will know outcome May 4th.
