Spring 2016 Semester

              So the classes that I submitted myself for have gone over my head and a lot of advance time consumption to deal with. But overall, the classes are going along swimmingly well, even if they are all illustrations course.

              The busiest time that I have are with Illustration IV and Illustrating Fiction. Both classes seem similar as an illustrator but with different approaches. In Illustration IV, we are tackling basic client/ business assignments that a typically illustrator will be presented with. Mainly we have done children book illustrations to edition cartoons. However, the instructor has an particular time lapse, as we have to present final sketches, color studies and then the final piece. It is very time consuming and strong contrast from my other illustration course.
            In Illustrating fiction, it tackles the same issues but more on illustrating fictional literature. Here you are able to display our interpretation and appearing visuals based on the stories. But the stories aren't fairy tale, as the list of stories off old folklore, Swan Lake, Tarzan and so on. Our current project is to illustrate a book cover and two interior illustration prints. Here is a preview of what I got for the cover, with hand painted type and slowly built up illustration on the bottom left corner. More will come Sunday. Also, any finished illustration will be added to my website, so keep an eye on that.      

           Then on my fridays, I have another life drawing class known as Perspective in Anatomy. The class is pretty much described in the title, we look at the human anatomy and know how the muscles and bones work and look correctly on the form. It is an requirement but also looks like an interesting course to be in. Not only do was have to draw the figure, but we are currently making a clay model that will show what the bones and muscles are. It is pretty much a hands on class that I hope will be good in the end.
           Unfortunately, my schedule did change as I wasn't able to take Comics & Sequence arts, as I wasn't getting any sleep. But I am going to continue practicing on my own and try to attend any comic lectures at my own time. I'm hoping this isn't a step back from my original path, but an smaller step forwards as I am getting new information and figuring out what I want out of my comic appear. So for this, I have inherited a tumblr. I will put a link up later on, once I get some stuff up there to look at.
