I'm Still Doing Stuff!

I've been working on a pinecone painting, and some Maya animations, but I'll post those when they're more refined!  Until then, here's a short story I wrote for another class:

Trees

Trees are so difficult to draw!  They need so much patience!  I'm working on that bit, and I am getting better...

Anyways, I've been doing digital paintings of trees from pictures on the internet.  Somehow it's easier.  Maybe it's just because I can draw inside and be warm.
Picture from e-mail.  The background is amazing, no?

I also went to a House of Floyd concert!  They're really good!  We asked for balcony seats, but somehow that was translated into "We'd like front row seats, please."  I drew gestures with the flashes of light and even in its absence, but then my pen ran out of ink.  I'll post some of these later.  I wanted to take more pictures, but my phone ran out of battery.  
Maybe I should be a photographer...
In other news, I'm giving up Facebook for 40 days!  It's embarrassingly difficult.  I have to miss this sort of thing: 

Playlist: Broken Bells, The Black Keys, Staind, Fitz & the Tantrums (new stuff from them! Really excited!), Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Pink Floyd, House of Floyd

Day 19

Day 19 - Something you're afraid of

FISH.  

They're so creepy and weird!  They don't blink!  They are covered in scales!  Some have one tooth and their mouths just stay open.  Gills are also weird.  The thing about swimming is that things can go on a z-axis, and are therefore unpredictable.  That's why I also don't like bugs that fly.
I do, however, like smoked salmon.

On another note, I'm writing on another blog with some friends!  It's writing, but I might throw in some pictures :-)  We get prompts, and respond however we feel.  This is the other blog: http://wewritemore.wordpress.com/

Figyar Drawring!!!

Over break, I participated in the Figure Drawing Marathon!!!  It was so great, and I want to go again!  I think it really helped me, but I know I need to keep drawing to keep any of the skill gained.

We did figure painting, which I had never done before, and we also did costumed models the last day, and I'd also not done before!

Figure painting was super fun!  I used water colors and a water brush, but I'd like to try acrylics next.
1st ever figure painting!
2nd ever!
3rd ever!
