Trying to get back in to the groove, I did a painting- my first try at actually painting something (rather than depending on lineart) since I did that Ebony Black painting two? years ago. Three, i think!! Good lord, time is flying.
Anyways, http://www.woodyart.blogspot.com and http://www.artsammich.blogspot.com (classmates, you will remember me showing you them before haha) did a really interesting fun thing- take a disney colouring book lineart, and paint it like an old school painting. (http://www.yumedust.deviantart.com also did a beautiful Sleeping Beauty)
This was obnoxiously fun but i think i might uh. Not be able to recreate this success hahaha. Working on some portfolios- its weird being so far away from the hub, I haven't any idea who is hiring or what is going on in animation or whatnot. That used to be really depressing but now I'm sort of taking it as a chance to have a lot of time to make my art and drawings really speak for me and who I am- no more of "what do I think Disney will want to see". I'm done trying to be someone I'm not for the sake of a job- but at the same time, I have a list in my head of things that i really would like to be better at, mostly things that most of my images generally lack (like backgrounds) but also posing, group images, storyboarding, painting styles, more finalized items- generally, I want my stuff to look more finished. I think we can all agree that I've got a pencil under control, but my other stuff... ehhh.
