Don't Look Here!

A place for those who dabble in paint. Or, you know, pixels. Because they matter too.

Your art is gorgeous!
Alone she drifts from ancient mists
Nary a candle, nary a wish
But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end

I realize that I don't post that often on here, so here's some other stuff from my senior year. If you didn't know, which not many of you do, I graduated this past Sunday. I'll be going into game art and design or whatever the degree is actually called. Concept art, that's what I wanna do. :P And a minor in music performance. Anyways, here's some of my works. :)

D&D

I tried to join a D&D group a few months ago, and it was a ton of fun sketching everyone's characters! It was fun for a while, but our DM kept adding people to an already large group, and most of us were already newbies anyways. On top of that, I have Asperger's Syndrome and some kinda social anxiety, though I usually don't make a big deal about it. So I decided to drop it since I was so uncomfortable. Still, I'll take it up again in college. :D

Charcoal Exercise: "I Forgot My Homework"

I tried charcoal in my drawing class, and though I'm allergic to dust, I quite enjoyed it! This was only an exercise piece, but I ended up getting a first-place ribbon in our art show. I'm pretty proud of this one, I have to say.

Charcoal Piece: "The Mask"

I did this after realizing my affinity for charcoal. It's called "The Mask" because the reference image seemed to be some sort of mask that the Greeks would use in a play or something, I don't know. That's why the top isn't really "complete." I like it though. :)

FEAR: Pregnancy, Deafness, Spiders

Simply put, this was an illustration on our fears, which was the theme for our charcoal pieces. I did mine in a three-part series, seeing how I couldn't exactly decide which fear to do. The first is a fear of pregnancy: without getting into specifics, I don't like the idea of being pregnant. I'd rather adopt a child without a mother to care for them. The second is a fear of deafness: I am deaf in my left ear. As a musician and a lover of laughter, one of my worst fears is finally losing hearing in my right ear, though that's not something that will for sure happen. My final fear: spiders. Not much explaining there.

Adobe Illustrator: One Original Sonata

This was a project in my digital foundations class with a teacher that hated me for whatever reason. It wasn't in my head either, she called me out for whatever reason for things I didn't even do. I'm a good student, so it didn't even make sense. Anyways, this would look one hundred times better if she had been more lenient and given me more time to do this. It was a contemporary/historical mashup, and I did what I THOUGHT was a Dali/Banksy mashup, but because I had no time to research, it turns out that it wasn't a Dali piece. Ugh.

Adobe Illustrator: 100 Years Car (1962)

It was my high school's 100th year, so we had a huge year-long event for it. In my digital foundations class, we were each assigned a year and told to chose a car from that year to redo. I got 1962, and I chose to give it some neat 60's vibes with a "neon sign"-looking thing going on. She (the teacher) tried to sway me from the idea, but I totally ignored her. ;P

That's it for now. I do have a lot of stuff I haven't posted yet, but I'll have to upload all of it soon!
