Here, have a dump

I really need to scan some more work, but here's some of what I've been doing this semester:

Painting of David Bowie. I never again want to paint Ben-Day dots. Which, of course, means that I'm going to do it again, like an ass.

They make us do typography. It's kinda lame, but at the same time, extremely useful. Also, I get to play with hardware. Yay!

Both of these are sketches that I then rendered (poorly) in Illustrator for two different classes. I really can't say I'm a big fan of Illustrator. Some of what I do in it is fun, but minimalistic. I really want to go back and paint these sketches at some point.

I actually know basic animation in Photoshop now! Which I really was retarded in trying to figure out before hand. I had to do a banner design for our web portfolio design class, which I would never use on my actual website. I really just did it so the professor sees that I'm doing work. Of course, I have no clue if this thing actually works. I guess I'll see after I upload this post.

Speaking of web portfolio design, this is the mock up for the main page of my website. Obviously not up yet, as I'm tweaking it and haven't bought web space yet, but it's a basic idea of what I'm going to do with it. I'm most likely going to have a more refined image on the front too, but I like it for what it is.

This is the mock up for the gallery navigation.

And this is the background for the section titled "Writing Desk", which is seriously under a lot of work, since it will feature the WIP of my two novels.

Alright, my class is over, and I'm off to Dances of Vice! I'll try to update more soon. Ciao!
