This post will be tying up the loose ends from first year. I'm done, I'm home and all is going well. I managed to complete first year without going completely mental and only having a few break downs.

Here is my final painting project. It's a COPIC marker BG with a character on a cel overlay. The cel was painted with acrylica gouache. I worked really hard on this, trying to re-familiarize myself with my markers (I didn't get to use them all year for anything serious)- Yeah, I got a 60-something (as usual. FML.). Oh well, at least I like it.

For my final layout assignment, we were to do a diagonal panned background. Of course I misunderstood most of the directions and tried to vomit it out the night before... But I learned where I went wrong and my prof was really awesome about it.

Now here are some animations I haven't posted here:

Firstly, an animal walk cycle. I can't draw animals very well so this was a pain. Oh well, got an 88 on it.

Here is my flour sack animation, interacting with a puddle. Out of stupidity, I put it off until the day before and shat this out. There's problems I'd love to fix, but oh well.

Finally, here is a fun animation done in Animate Pro during digital tools. There were some bugs with the software, so the patches misaligned. It was excused because of the circumstances (the technical difficulties).

That's all for now; I'm off to sleep for the next week or so.

I've added a Twitter feed to this page. Dunno why it took me so long to do so, I'll just write it off as being lazy. It means I had to unlock my tweets, so now the world can read my rambling stupidity. Oh well, wasn't that what Twitter was invented for?

Anyways, the workload is really intense at the moment, so my updates are rather sporadic.

Here is that blue Col-Erase doodle I was working on in the last update. I finished it, but it's a little too 'anime' for my liking.

Here's a quick (10min) doodle I did for my sister. She was originally going to use it in a type poster, but changed ideas.
This is a reproduction background from Disney's "Mickey's Christmas Carol" I did for painting class. We were to take an existing animation BG and copy it completely. It's been a while since I watched this, but I believe it's outside Fezzywig's party.

Here's a random page in my sketchbook I did a few weeks back during layout. Prof was going on about style, so I doodled in pen.

That's all for now. There's so much work left to do before the year's over and I only have two more weeks to do it. Hopefully I'll post more though.
