200 Posts

So my previous post was officially my 200th post! I've been super busy with homework so I haven't had all that much free time. I can tell that this is going to be a fun, yet extremely busy semester. I hope I'm ready.

Our first assignment for Computer Animation is to create concept sketches for the environment that we're planning on doing for our project this semester. I'm planning on doing the interior of a subway for my project. Backgrounds are a major challenge for me, but I'm working on it.

Animation III Begins

So for my Animation III class, we're required to blog everything. So from now on, my Animation III posts will be separate from the daily (or however often I can) updates.

Our labs don't have any animation software yet, so all we've been able to do in class so far is draw gestures from cartoons.

Internet Problems

So my dorm's internet has been terrible, therefore I haven't been able to use it for like a day or two. Finally it's back up, so I can make a post after awhile. I've been really busy with classes already too, so I'll update when I can.

Starting up Classes

Yesterday was the official start of classes! After tomorrow I will have had all of my classes. So far they're great and I'm confident that this is going to be an awesome semester. I'm really excited. So for Animation III we're supposed to make a separate section on our blog for those assignments, so I'm going to be posting those in separate posts now. Although, now that classes have started, I'm not guaranteeing the daily blog posts. I'll post as often as I can, but not promising anything.


First portrait done for my Portrait Drawing class.

End of Summer

So Summer's officially over and today starts my first day of classes for my Junior year at CCAD. Last night was a great last night of summer and today's been a really good day with classes, too. I'm excited to start up this semester since I had a lot of really cool classes and some great instructors so far.

Roommate Bonding Time

Yesterday was mostly spent hanging out with my roommates and really getting used to living back here. It was a fun day.

Back at CCAD!

I moved back yesterday actually, but I've been super busy moving in and dealing with scheduling problems. But either way, it feels great to be back!

26 Years

Today is my parents' 26th Anniversary! So we're going to be celebrating for the day. I was fairly busy yesterday and will be for the next few days, so my posts won't be too big.

Digital piece I did for my parents' anniversary! Progress images below.

Trip to Put-in Bay!

Yesterday my family and I took a ferry to Put-in Bay and spent the whole day there. It was a lot of fun, and the first time I rode a ferry in over 10 years. Also it was my first time riding in a golf kart, so that was interesting. The day was really fun, but I'm pretty worn out. Now my time will be spent packing up and getting ready to move back to CCAD!

Trip to the Zoo!

Yesterday I went to the zoo with my brother and my mom. It was a lot of fun, but lots of walking. We also got some pretty good food afterwards, involving Friendly's Ice Cream for dessert. It was a really eventful day, and I know the rest of the week will be just as busy.

A piece I started awhile ago. I stopped working on it when I got sick, and finally had some time to finish it up last night.

Had some time at the end of the night before bed to continue Nicola's Journey.

On another note, this is the VERY LAST page in my Sketch Journal (almost lasted the entire summer)! I'll be starting a new one starting tonight though.

Milkshakes are the Cure

Got to get some milkshakes from Steak n Shake before the end of the summer! And, no lie, the milkshakes actually made my sickness feel a bit better. I also watched this year's Survivor DVD with my mom and brother.

Mini-Sketch Book Ending Soon

I just realized today that I only have about two more pages in my mini-sketch book that I've called my Sketch Journal. I have another mini-sketch book that is slightly bigger, so I'm going to be transferring to that one in a few days. Slowly building my way up to draw bigger again.

Nays Randomizer

So I drew a little bit of an old project I started back in 2009 called The Nays Randomizer. It's a project that my brother and I have done where we draw each other's characters with various prompts. So when my brother finally wanted to draw, I jumped on the opportunity. Plus I've begun to realize that drawing is actually making my sickness feel better somehow. Trying to fit in all of those final illustrations before school starts; just like every summer's end.

"Disease Boy in the Rain"
This was drawn for The Nays Randomizer. I got to play around with focus and special effects in this one.

"Haca the Mermaid"
Another one drawn for The Nays Randomizer. Although it doesn't look all that much like Haca, I got to draw a digital illustration after a long break.

Fighting the Battle

Fighting against this sickness, that is... Still feel pretty sick right when I wake up and before I go to bed, but the sickness is at least not as terrible during the day. I might finally be able to start being productive again soon. Just in time to go back to college.

Decided to re-design an old character: Brutus. My brother's thinking about using him in an animation, so I decided I'd draw a better reference for him to use of him.
