Two working weeks left. Why am I blogging

It's because there are two weeks left. When it goes down to one, that's when the all nighters come and beating myself over the head over how I should have been working. Or maybe it will be better this semester? Last Spring was alright. It might be a cycle I'm developing.

Inkwash from figure drawing class, after the first session, and the final.

The Keakeumm, an alien species I have developed for Electronic illustration. Still some work needed on it. There's another alien in the works, which I should address in the next few days.

And some Bunn guns for advanced structural. These fire magnetically accelerated nano-ammunition, custom built inside the rifle from atmospheric gasses.
These are connected to the other alien race of my game idea for Electronic illustration :)

Where was I?

I've got a sinus infection going on. At first I thought it was a toothache, then TMJ, went to the doctor's who thought the headache was the significant thing, and gave me antibiotics.
I hope it clears soon, because I don't have time to be sick.

Got John Henry back, with a 95 attached to it, which makes me very happy, I was getting tired of B's.
Erika, my teacher, told me she would put it in the show if I gave John higher contrast, I'll see what I can do.

I also got the seduction piece back,  got a C on it. Apparently no one will buy it because I didn't define the characters or space well enough.

In the future, Bunn will expand it's business from coffee machines into magnetically-accelerated nano-ammunition sniper rifles.
Why Bunn? Not because it rhymes with Gun, that's for sure.
It came out of a suggestion to work using an established visual identity as a guide. The teacher suggested I use Colt. I thought it was a good idea, but gun companies seem pretty bland, as guns are less designed and more engineered towards a practical application.
With that in mind, I searched for something that had an orange handle, because I have a marker in that color ;)

In other news. Work from free model session:
And from figure drawing class:

What now brown cow?

Has it really only been a week since spring break?

We've had a concept artist presentation with Eric Spray, Brian Matyas and Mark Sullivan this week, it was very inspiring to see what these guys have been doing, and how they do it. A lot more inspiring than Mrs. Wong ;)

Need to write a proposition for color concepts, based on the book Cradle to Cradle. I'm going to gear it towards gaming, with some concept and pixel art.
I also need to write more for Electronic illustration, as I brand and focus my project, again towards gaming.

Did an  oil pastel painting in figure drawing class. A natural light study.
I think I'll make it one of my final four, see if it gets into the show. Again, inspired by my dislike to Wong's treatment.
I don't know this model's name. Someone called her "Sumo," I'm so mean for using that...
