'stralia!

I'm in Australia!  Yay!  Happy Christmas--yesterday!

Currently it's raining outside, but I'm in the airport.  Yay!  Six hour layover!

Sketchbook stuff.

We played Kinect at a friends' house on Christmas!  Really fun!
I'd never used one before, and it's really cool!

Australian hot chocolate!
I'll post loads more when I'm back and not sharing a computer and power converter with four other people!  Until then, g'day!

I'm a Model-ler

We modelled flare guns this semester in 51a.  Maya has got to be one of the most complicated and frustrating programs ever, but at least I learned some of its secrets in fifteen weeks.

113A

Finished 113A today!  Great class, and simultaneously frustrating.  I left a lot of dead brushes in my wake, but I learned a lot.  I'm going to miss Inga-lish, "BS stories," and random interruptions from other professors.

We did a black and white of a still life first, then color comps, and a final in color.  In short, ovals are hard.

Black and White
"Analogous" Color composition


Color (Analogous) Final


The Other 15 Color Compositions:
