Happy almost new year! The winter break has been pretty relaxed. I've been mostly cafe sketching and looking at art/animation books. I can't wait till spring semester!!!

Back at Home for the Christmas holidays!

For our 3d final, we had to incorporate all the elements and principles of design into a floating intention. My partner Anguel and I collaborated with another team to perform a skit where we invade Troy. We created a Horse Boat named Massive Black. Massive Black fared well on land, but, in the ocean... not really. All in all, we had a blast and made memories and friendships. We learned much about teamwork,communication, time management power tools,and balancing objects. We spent 8 hours editing the enjoy!

Every drawing teacher had their own form of a Final Exam. My Drawing teacher had us do a visual Narrative. We had to incorporate what we learned in class (ex: composition, contour, perspective, negative space, value).I got some assistance and tips on how to create interesting characters and what programs to use to create an animatic from many awesome upperclassman CA's. In the end, I made an A+

During the holidays, I hope to learn more about creating characters and reading the animators survival kit. I cant wait for Traditional animation next semester!

Last week of ringling freshman fall semester!

It's been pretty busy these past few weeks with finals. Unfortunately my camera broke so I am at an inconvenience with uploading traditional art. My most recent drawings/figure drawing are in my teacher's possession and I won't get them back till next semester. I'll update soon with the boat project I did in 3d design and my visual narrative for drawing.

For now, here's a couple of semi old figures from class.
