First, last week’s cartoon mojo! I drew a flapper witch with a conjured familiar!
Right. So, Thursday was that, Friday was a makeup day. Saturday was SCAD Day. I ate like three free popsicles and met an awesome transfer student who’s starting here next quarter.
In Drawing for Storyboarding we did caricatures of people in motion.
We also started to work on storyboards for a Kool-aid advertisement. I did the thumbnails and then I’ll start actually working on the final thing tomorrow in class, because…I don’t know, I want to put this off for as long as humanly possible.
In Drawing for Sequential Art we had to draw a figure in shadow only, no containment lines. I’m actually fairly pleased with mine.
Our final for this class is a 2-page Spiderman comic following a very specific script. I do not like superhero comics.
I very much do not like superhero comics.
I’m going to do my best on this assignment anyway because I value professor June’s opinion of me.
Art for fun! Inktobers:
I switched to doing My Hero Academia Characters because I got sick of drawing buildings, and I love these girls. My Hero Academia is really so good.
I’m also writing and illustrating my most embarrassingly autobiographical fanfiction to date. Please read it or I’ll cry. It’s Haikyuu but with fencing instead of volleyball.
What else have I done lately…
As a student ambassador I have to help out with the hometown heroes table twice a week. I’m working with my friend, so it’s fun.
The local public library was giving out library cards during the break in the middle of my class today so I got one. I also made a button of Uraraka’s face, because as previously mentioned I love her. I think Uraraka’s my new go-to drawing thing.
Media consumed recently:
Read Petrograd for my Survey of Sequential Art Class. It’s actually really good. Graphic novel about the plot to kill Rasputin. Recommended if you like spy stories. Certified as Good Media About Russia By Not-Russians.
Watched Blade Runner 2049 on Sunday with my friend! Opinions: gorgeous, uncontrollable urge to do storyboard studies from every scene, beautifully paced, beautiful environments, but. What is with the multilingual aesthetic. Why is there Japanese and English on some things, Russian and English on other things, Mandarin and English on even more things, but with no rhyme or reason. You don’t even see any Asian people in this future Los Angeles, but you get a lot of Asian signage that doesn’t seem to have a reason to be there. It distracted me because the sudden inclusion of Russian language and imagery made me pay extra attention to it.
Wrote and illustrated an article for the connector! Actually two articles! Unfortunately the Connector website isn’t working for me right now (I had the first link saved somewher else), but you can find the second article if you search for Generate.
I’m also helping out with a few senior films this year! That’s actually what I’m going to go work on now. There’s an ASIFA-South mixer tonight, but I don’t really feel like it right now. I’ll go to the January one, I suppose.
