Been trying to get back into drawing a little more consistently so I can work on stuff again.
Here’s a pirate I designed yesterday!! Her name is Griselda i think
Well mostly because the whole major is exactly what I want to do with my work. I want to go into storyboarding and illustration jobs, but the Illustration major wasn’t what I was looking for after I saw their department. Animation is something else I’m interested in, but I am extremely intimidated by the major as a whole, and I’m not very good at it anyway(Though I’m looking into minoring in Animation!!). Sequential art covers everything illustration wise that tells a story. From comics to childrens books and to storyboarding for movies, TV and even commercials and everything in between. It seems like a very narrow major at first, but it allows you to enter into many different job fields, some that you might not have ever considered!
I like my major a lot, I always have fun in my classes and I learn a lot from them. This will be my first quarter actually on campus so I’m excited to see how different it is.
All in all, you should pick a major that you are excited for. I’m constantly excited to work on class stuff, and it doesn’t feel like as much of a chore than other things because I like it so much. Before you pick your major I suggest visiting the campus you’re going to and checking out the different majors and see what they have to offer!!
SORRY FOR THE EXTREME LACK OF UPDATES AND COMMISSION WORK
I’ve finally moved to Savannah and I just moved into my new apartment wheezes. I’m setting myself up so this weekend I can work on nothing but commissions SO EXPECT THEM TO BE DONE SOON AT LEAST SOME OF THEM….. (NOW THAT I THINK ABOUT IT MY PARENTS AREN’T LEAVING TOWN UNTIL SUNDAY SO REALLY IT’LL BE SUNDAY AND MONDAY AND TUESDAY OR SMTH….)
cuz god knows I need to finish all these immediately…. i’m gonna need to open them again to sustain myself out of the odd jobs I’ll be doing around town for people….
BUT YEAH If you’re in the Savannah, Georgia neighborhood let me know 8) it’ll be nice to know more people in the area.
Hmm it depends what you mean by art block. Is it the flow of ideas or is it you feel you can’t draw at the moment? Or something else?
Usually when I get “art block” it’s that I feel I can’t really draw. I get it really bad sometimes, but I usually just take a break for a couple hours and get back to it when I feel more calm and collected. Even if I still think it’s not turning out well, I’ll keep drawing and doodling things just to keep myself going. Anytime I get too frustrated I’ll stop and take a break again.
Same thing with ideas, but I’ll look around for inspiration while I’m taking a break. I’ll watch other people draw, or I’ll scroll through tumblr and see something cool that might inspire me to draw. When I run out of ideas I’ll go and do some studies on anatomy or draw backgrounds from reference images. Anything to keep my mind flowing and eventually I’ll produce more ideas.
JUST DEPENDS ON THE SITUATION I GUESS. I don’t like to say I have art block, because the only thing blocking me from drawing is myself at that point so it’s something you have to overcome mentally.
Thank you so much! 8) I’m glad you like my stuff!!
Unfortunately the only con I can sell at right now is colossalcon, i don’t have the budget to sell at other cons because of travel expenses and the gamble of not knowing how well I would do at a table 6w6 When I become more financially stable I’ll definitely branch out though! I’d love to sell at AX one day when I get a lot better haha
Thank you so much! They are currently closed because of such a huge back log, but I hope to open them again soon!
