So much work, even during spring break but i must not stop sketching, screw the whole illustration thing and petty comments on how i only sketch and barely do anything finished, im getting sick of those random classmates getting on my balls about my sketching habits, i nearly snapped on the last person who went " Oh you always draw that character" sure for some you can simply draw a character standing and smiling and its done but for me to get deeper in animation, i gotta study and create some kind of personality for the character. And that cant be done in 1 sketch can it. 100 fuck ups for 1 good sketch, thats what it takes. Anyway, im still up for entervoid tough, ill be abusing my markers on those comic book pages, till then, i resketched my win and lose poses and im taking on the first intro page right now. I also blazed throught my school projects, i had enough of wasting time on them, passing great goes, more time to use what i learn on animation and comic type work to build up a REAL portfolio. No industry would look at a collage inside a portfolio and take the artist seriously. Really hahahah.

ALRIGHT time to sketch some more !

Flooded with projects atm, around 5 at the same time with random essays sneaking up on me time after time. Already handed in a rendering project a technical drawing perspective assignement, a clayboard project, a color project and i gotta hand in that inking project tomorrow. Then time to study animal heads since ill have to mold one into clay to create a hybrid clay piece, long story and ill try to take a picture whenever i can.

-Current objectives:

[Urgent comission attempt] : Low on cash and its time to get serious.
-Brush pen practice
-Value practice : Time to get down with it since i wont be able to do a thing in color if i dont get a grip of value.
-Marker practice: Basic shapes THEN l33t characters.
-Watercolor pencil practice: Time to make something better than that last portfolio
-Animal and human anatomy sacrifice: As BlueRaptor told me, gotta sacrifice some parts of the anatomy to emphasise certain actions, lets go.

[Void objectives]
-Using the techniques above, finalize character sheets and intro panels.

I might not post till next month or study break, till then feedback is big help, you can be sure ill practice on it. Gotta thank Hen-Hen, Blue Raptor and Viper for the straight on criticism. Now time to ATTACK ATTACK ATTAAAAAAAAAAAAACK ! *quietly works on the school projects.*
