Horizon lines

Here goes my super super fun re-learning of perspective, vanishing points and horizon lines!

4.5 down, 3.5 to go.

First Conditional Acceptance for Art Fundamentals at Sheridan College :D

Which, although not being my first choice, is still kind of an ego boost. It feels good that at least SOMEONE accepted me.

So I had my Sheridan/York interview today, and I think it went fairly well. The fact that she basically spent 5 minutes looking at what took me about 2 months to compile was kind of painful, but still.
The interviewer told me that my illustration skills were very strong and that I'd be successful if I wanted to pursue either one (graphic design or illustration). Which put a huge smile on my face.

And man on man thank God for Desktop Design.
If it wasn't for those artists that we had to study, I'd have no idea what I would have answered for any of those questions.

All in all, I think it went as well as it could have for a 10 minute interview.

One down, two to go.

Head down, pencil in hand, moving forward *sigh*

So massive snowstorm today, and district-wide snow day. GREAT.
On the one day that I have no school, we get a snow day. This blows.
Also, this complicates my "gotta get to TKD no matter what the weather" plans considerably.

Here are some doodles from my sketchbook, and one finished work.
I apologize in advance for shitty camera quality.

Finally got this baby back, my first independent. Proud as hell of it, for once. I'll get a proper scan up eventually.

Got myself a red colour-erase pencil. I think I'm in love.
I don't think I'll draw with anything else ever again.

20 minute self-portrait in dying brush pen and marker.

Squiggly Monroe-inspired lady, and random topless girl with cane.

And the sketch of the thing I'm currently working on.

I've had quite the week :]
