Especially at the end of last summer. ^_____^ Don't know why, but I see that month as an official benchmark for my skill level now. I produced a lot of small pieces to show the scale of my capabilities at the time; I think the process of refinement of my character stylization started truly growing at that point. Me and Matt's friendship grew through illustration, and even though I was not in Boston most of the time, we still covered lengthy topics like sources of inspiration, techniques and exchanged critiques--day and night. Eventually we started picking up different elements of each other's work into our own. I think this was most memorable because it was a period of fast change and new ideas.
This was done last august on the 24th, exactly two weeks after today. That's two weeks until a year. LOOK HOW CRAPPY I WAS. D: Actually I am still horrible right now--but at least there is strong progress. I still feel like I could've improved stronger than this though.
Anyways as soon as I get those strands right I want a more personal stylized method for coloring hair, preferably one that is chunkier. Right now I am taking a break from coloring/drawing hair to color/draw some more hair. Today I meant to mess around with google sketchup but I never got to. Instead I spent most of my day cleaning this poop hole I call my apartment (and three other people. Usually an additional 4th person who is a guest. Now you know why it can be so disgusting..)
I really want to try and draw something technical--at least one for this summer!!
At least I am learning some nifty things though, like clipping masks. It can be so versatile.
Also I'm thinking on doing some "tutorials" (that is, how I do things) but the more I think about it, the more complicated it gets if I want to make sure I am thorough. Doing all those examples are going to be tough..
Well anyways I was considering on one of these:
Yeah Kate has a point. A very good one haha, I forgot there were other things I wanted to do before summer was over.. things with a much higher priority.
