Send me a pm and we can figure out a time and place. =) I'm busy tomorrow and Christmas but I'm pretty free on Christmas Eve and after Christmas until around mid-January.

There's a Gantz movie!? :O Speaking of anime movies, the ridiculous 3D Yu-Gi-Oh! crossover movie as dubbed by 4kids is going to be playing in select theaters at the end of February and beginning of March. And I am going to go see it. It better be playing in Connecticut. There's also a fanart contest for the movie going on and so I'm hopefully going to enter that. I'm very excited.

I didn't know anything about lighting before analysis of form. It was all new to me. In my previous degree (computer animation) we didn't learn how to draw. We had a general art class that was called Object Perspective. We did figure drawing, a bit of modeling, and we went over overall drawing stuff. The class was two months long for 8 hours a day. (I was in an accelerated program.)

Most of the hardcore stuff we're learning at AAU was new to me. So I feel your pain. And making the transition from cartooning to hardcore study is rough. But, you can do it. It's just a matter of making sure you get the most out of the class. Rather than going for perfection, make sure you learn to core of what's being taught.

For analysis of form, its rendering form with value and understanding how the values describe the different traits of the forms. Also, you're supposed to try to understand how planes work. (Which I STILL don't get. I'm working on it though. It has gotten a little better at least.)

I'll try to find my work. I lost my files a couple months ago, but I may have them online somewhere. My work in that class was s**t. It's been a couple years between then and now. Haha. I don't think my work from then would do anything but make you feel better about yours. Haha.

Well, you take the same stuff you do for the shapes and just mix them. Google Dan Gheno teaching. He's got what you need to make that connection on his site.

What are you planning to take next besides the class? If you file a complaint, they may comp the class for you and you don't have to pay twice if you passed it. And don't feel bad about having trouble getting core concepts. They're hard. Once you get them though, you'll never forget them. ********, I failed perspective twice. Sure, I know it. Sure I know it enough to explain it with examples to others. It doesn't make the class any less difficult. So don't worry. Just keep focus on the material without trying to relate it to something else you want to do. I think that was my problem. And yeah, sometimes it's hard to understand the teacher. My office is mostly korean. My VP is very difficult to understand, but if you politely ask they repeat whatever you didn't catch, you'll get used to them and understand pretty quickly.

No problem. I took a picture of my female plaster head to go over your head that you posted, but I've been really busy. Only two weeks left! I am behind in anatomy and I'm only 4 pages into my 22 page script AND I need to do project for digital photography.)

Since it's the end of the semester, I wanted to ask something. In Analysis of Form, didn't they go over the anatomy of light/shadow? I think that's the main thing I noticed hurting your image. I can't see the difference between the form, form, and cast shadows on the figure.

Not that I know of, sorry. I've only come across the two so far. But I'll probably try to search for others.

Thank you! I had to use it when I came across it - it's actually a tiling wallpaper. There's one of the fire/ghost chandelier Pokemon from Black and White somewhere online, too.

Haha, yeah. Take what advice people can give you and grow from it. smile That's key.

Well, keep up the art! I'm sure you'll get where you wanna be with some more hard work and study.

Probably a strange thing to comment on, but I really like your attitude in regards to taking criticism. I've seen one too many artists flip out when someone like Errol critiques them. xd While amusing to read, it's always refreshing to see someone humble enough to accept and learn something from their mistakes.

Oh, and go go Pokemon. biggrin Guilty pleasure. I need to play more of the games. :<

It's title is kind of long but it's shortened to 'Oreimo' and translates as 'My Little Sister Can't Be This Cute' but it's not as incestuous as it sounds (so far anyway) and it's actually pretty entertaining.

I gotta go to a doctor's appointment but I'll talk to you later.

Yep, I've been playing Yu-Gi-Oh! and I have a slightly unhealthy obsession with Jaden/Judai from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX. Like to the point where I want to cosplay him even though I've discovered how painful crossplaying (cosplaying a character of the opposite gender) can be. And I'm also working on making kuriboh plushies. 8D

Just everything, I'm having my quarter-life crisis. But don't worry about me, hopefully things will turn out alright. :]

I have recently discovered an anime about my brother and I. The parallels are quite frightening.

No but I did buy a gnome for my friend for her birthday. 8D

I'll give you a hint, people in the future play it on motorcycles...

Aww, well hang in there! Senior year has been a struggle for me so far :/

Yo yo yiggity yo

I'm home on break. How's life and art school?

Guess what popular childhood fad I've gotten into soon after it became past its prime in popularity making it frustratingly difficult to find fellow enthusiasts as well as stores that carry the necessary goods? Go ahead and guess... 8D
