Man remember when deviantART was like my life.
DO you? I have a few friends from waybackwhen but how many of them still use dA often?
Anyway, life. Pretty much my life hasn't changed much. School, chores, anguish. The usual.
I haven't posted hardly anything about this semester, even though it's my last semester before I finish my Associate of Fine Arts. I've had three classes, all studio art classes, and yet I seem to have less time for personal art than I did last semester.
My classes have been
Life Drawing and
The first one is pretty straightforward, though it's been a love/uncomfortable relationship. All of the other students that were there took ART 170 (Jewelrymaking I) in the spring semester. I took 170 in the spring semester of 2013. So basically, they all knew each other and the only people I knew were the teacher and a few veteran students that seem to take the ART 170/270 classes multiple times (probably for access to the studio and instructor). I feel like an ametuer in the class but I do the best that I can and I've been trying new things.
Life drawing has been pretty fun. Lots of drawing, different types of drawing, dry and wet media, mostly charcoal but also pastels, pens, ballpoint pens, chalk. We've drawn people in the nude and in clothes (usually the clothes were only with portraits) and recently we've been doing some pretty cool stuff with storyboarding. We've had mostly female models, a good three or four that keep coming back. They're all really nice to draw. We've also had a couple male models, but not nearly as often.
Also after almost an entire semester I still can't draw hands or feet worth crap. :I I want my money back.
Sculptural design is... well. We make sculptures. First we made one out of wood, then one out of steel, then one out of found objects, and the last project we're working on now is a plaster head. The plaster head I'm doing is Rinku so I've been very happy working on it uvu we start with a clay base, then we're going to make a plaster mold out of it, and then use that mold to cast a plaster replica.
The semester ends on December 18th. So close, yet so far away. And then I'm not sure where I want to go after that. I could transfer to the UA and get a Bachelor's, or go to the private Uni SUVA (Southwestern University of Visual Arts) to do the same but for over twice the price (I REALLY LIKE SUVA THOUGH -KICKS A DESK-) Orrr I could take a few select DAR classes at Pima to learn graphic design software and build a GD portfolio and try and get a job from there.
Thinking about what comes after this semester makes me really anxious.
I have a lot of personal art I've been doing in my sketchbooks that needs to be scanned, as well as several more pages of Rinku's journal, but I never get the time to actually finish anything or even scan anything.
I also can't find my copy of ALBW and this makes me incredibly upset.
