Hey! Guess what?!?!

   Just a quick update with a couple compositions I did in the past couple weeks in school. I did get A's in my previous classes and I got accepted into both Kappa Pi and NTHS. The two compositions below are from my previous classes. The top one is of myself holding my iguana. There is a theme for all of the assignments in my Life Drawing and Gesture class. For every assignment, we have to show the relationship between a human and their animal. It's pretty fun, but I would rather focus more on character creations rather than drawing still life compositions of models that I don't know. It's hard to really get a feel for the relationship between a human and their pet if you have never seen them interact with each other before. 
   Anyway, the bottom drawing is a two-point perspective composition of an imagined house. I had to leave the guidelines in for this assignment so my professor could see how we got the angles. I absolutely love my Perspective Drawing class. I'm really looking forward to using what I learned from this class in future fantasy pieces.
   There are a few class projects that I am currently working on at this moment, so make sure you check back for more updates and art!

So, until then--

It's been a little while, how about some art?????? =^owo^=

   The designs at the bottom are the most recent. The one at the very bottom is just an updated version of Ruined City after adjusting the hues and saturation. This is what I have been doing in my classes. I have been learning how to use Photoshop by creating a caricature called Computer Critter Chris. For that project, we were given several names and were told to create a caricature for the name. The other designs were for my Digital Color Theory class. We had to experiment with the three color wheels, color pallets, and values and saturation. It was a lot of fun being able to have creative freedom with most of the assignments. I hope you all enjoy these as much as I did!

   My next classes begin Thursday, March 3rd. I will be taking Life Drawing and Gesture, as well as Perspective Drawing. I'm excited about taking both classes, but more so about the Perspective Drawing class. ((All classes are 5.5 weeks long.))

   I am keeping all A's in my classes so far. Hopefully I can continue to keep all A's. Other than that, I have an update on life. My boyfriend and I ended up talking about what we're going to do after I graduate in about four years. Depending on where I am able to get a job, we plan to get a house. We started saving money and formed a savings plan. By the time I graduate, we should have enough to cover a down payment for a house and six months to a year wroth of bills. Which should give him plenty of time to find a job if we have to move out of TN. 

   We also had "The Talk." We came to an agreement of not getting married until we are settled in a house with jobs. By the time I graduate, we will have been together for about seven years. Right now, it has only been just over three. I'm not sure how he's been able to put up with me. Lol. Anyway, keep being awesome, everyone! I'm going to work on posting about one piece every week, or every other week. It depends on what projects I will be working on in my classes and how much time I have left over after my assignments are completed.

So, until then--
Cya! <3
