Just felt like writing a journal today.
Not much has really changed since I wrote the last one. BA6 is underway, and I beginning the concept process. Which is easily my favorite part of the whole concept art development process. Trying to produce a mass of silloheetes to works from. We had to write our own learning agreement for this project, I set the amount of work on the minimum level to realistc amount although on looking at it with the work I'm doing, I think I'm going to easily surpass it which is good. But makes me wonder if the work I'm doing isn't actually that good, or that I'm just very suited to working by that method. I still keep jumping the gun and working on full concepts when I get bored, but I'm trying to keep them to the side and instead seeing them as getting prefabricated ideas out of my head. That way I can keep building fresh concepts.
As of this week I am on holiday, which I seem to have announced the same way someone mentions a family member has died of a terminal disease. Maybe I should have added a time stamp to that...I guess the main thing is to not procrastinate, the good thing about going into uni to work is that I'm effectively forced to do something. It comes with its downsides naturally, petty things like people talking too loudly and general anxiety. Home on the other hand is messy (My bedroom ) and I generally don't like working from home that much due to the background more than anything. If its early in the morning I find it easier to work, because no one is wandering around liable to drop something or just talk loudly. Really both locations are balanced.
I still haven't really uploaded anything on here, I still barely gets things completely finished to my satisfaction, I might just upload one concept that is part of my uni project for the hell of it though. I've started really using stock which is having a very visual improvement on my figure proportions, I always feel very uncomfortable drawing people, Some of it is because I have little practice and it shows, some of it is just people make me feel awkward. Like life drawing for example, not so much in general.
Oh and am I the only one who is slightly annoyed that on the 7th DA is doing a free premium day, but have purposefully left out the option to change username...I mean personally that's the only reason I want to try a membership! Really strikes me as bad form...talk about bait and switch.
