I tried using illustrator to colour one and the rest a pretty bog standard line drawings and marker ones :) Also i today I spent the day in town drawing buildings and people in marker pen, which i will upload soon :D Alsoooo my wonderful friend Hannah is hosting a bit of a Thanksgiving shindig tomorrow which should beee lovvveeellyyyy :) Very excited!

Robert Pattinson

What started out as a sketch last night, turned into 3 hours of detailed drawing! Which i was rather chuffed with, as 3 hours isn't too shabby for a drawing i would say! I kinda gave up towards the end and scribbled it out rather than doing the whole thing with a lovely finish to it. I used a bit of charcoal for the darker bits and found an 8B pencil in my toolbox which was AMAZING as i didn't even know i had that soft a pencil! So yes, i could have done this drawing to a higher standard I think but I'm happy with it as it is! Got a shabby look about it.

Tomorrow i am off to Londonnnnn!! Which should be awesome! I am very much looking forward to it and will be taking a lot of photos and starting a project, searching for inspiration from our capital city :)

Boxes

I've literally spent the past week making these little boxes! Time consuming but so worth, as i've never really liked building things or doing anything to do with 3-D design but found from designing the actual templates of the boxes, illustrating them and then constructing them myself, really rewarding! It's kind of changed my opinion a bit on 3-D design. I pretty much feel like, now i have given it a chance, it's not as bad as i initially would have thought! Just goes to shows that you should never dismiss something!
Here are a few images to show some of the progression stages of the making! The main focus of the boxes are to show the what could potentially be on the inside of the box, on the outside in an illustrated form! Not the best photos in the world but i am sure these will do! :)

College

Blimey I am having such fun at College. I'll just show you some of the work i have been doing lately. It's a lot different to what i normally do, but to be honest that's why i like it! We're all experimentmal and crazzaaayyy!
The main areas we are working in are Print (amazing), Visual Studies (amazing), Animation (amazing), Ceramics (not so amazing) and Photography (almost amazing, need to have a lot of patience for it).
So i absolutely LOVE the combinations which can occur from all of these areas and others such as Graphics and 3-D building are 'totalement impressionnant'!

So from being at college, i have so far gained: Many fun times, many nice friends, many new skills and many ideas about what i like and dislike, as well and strengths and weaknesses!
Some of the stuff i have produced isn't particularly stunning but that's not really the point. The point is to try things out and see what works for you so i am pleased with everything for this reason :)
