I had forgotten how relaxing it was to just sit and draw someone, even with a time limit and the complete concentration but it seems to help me focus. A3 size paper is not the best size for life drawing, need to go larger and express more.
Been given a character concept project to do, the starter word is 'reef'. But we have to keep the character humanoid, ok so that has its limits but makes you think. Getting started on this has been more interesting than other projects so far, we actually get to create what we want (yay) and once we have the basic of our character and a final render its time to sculpture.
Its really weird, we are no longer freshers anymore, well not really. The uni is now interviewing the next lot of students for the course, its amazing how fast this year has gone and to think we are past half of the first year. I'm really enjoying it and my time here even if the work load is full on, but it makes you realise how much work you can or should be doing in that space of time. Note to self: need to buckle down more.
