The Artist Journal: A quick update on my education

As the title suggests, that’s how it is this post. Fretting over college work means I’ve had little time to do personal work. As far as college, I’m getting some good feedback from classmates AND tutors. As it’s a preliminary couple of months, our the students on the Art & Design course (including myself) are being assessed and then we specialise into one of the fours sections: Fine Art, 3D, Fashion and Graphics. We do get to choose where we go, so I’m going for Fine Art and develop my illustration skills from there.

Although on a chirpier note, I have completed my latest LoL fanart work for the forums.

I discovered the blending tool which helped my sketchbook work look less “grainy.” I need to invest in one of these tools, since I only borrowed the one I used, haha. I’m slowly working in colour into my drawings, but I still like going Black & White, just as a personal preference.

Until tomorrow! 🙂

IW (Illustration Wednesday): Beginning

A new post to be made every wednesday with regard to Illustration work and me practicing my illustration skills. This will happen every wednesday and will contain either a traditional or digital drawing, or a photograph.

So since it’s the start of this new series of blog posts, I have made two: they illustrate my first few days in college and my thoughts.

The faceless person is the representation of a potential friend I could make. Given that there are around 50 people on my particular course, all of which seem friendly and cool, I shouldn’t have a problem getting to know a few. Although with me being a shy and timid person, that shall take some time.
