August 27, 2008
^Portrait of August 27th. I went with the idea of doing a journal comic. These were actual events of the day, nothing too exciting, except for the free meal I received that day for having a stupid debit card... I still have yet to pay them back~ oh well, the food was not all that delicious anyway... I probably won't be going there for a long time... maybe forever, ahahaha... agh... This was the first assignment given in Illustration III. It was very fun to do, and something I'd like to continue doing. I'd love to be productive and do a weekly comic... about random things and my oh-so-exciting life...
Agh... so much to do~
Ahhhh... I had my Korean class today... It's only 102~ I already feel so behind, ahaha, soooo sad~ seriously depressing... I have so many other things in my mind that I don't give much thought or time towards it until an hour before the class starts... I feel so bad... I really need to kick it up a notch... stop having fun altogether, maybe... hehehe... or not, I just need to manage time more wisely... *sigh* or not sleep...
I have about 8 to 10 pages to write for Wednesday (double-spaced, yay, XD, but I still despise writing essays) and a quiz on Thursday~ I have to work on a big poster project advertising the best drink in the world (I'm making it up) and there's a digital illustration due on Friday. To finish off this wonderful week, I'll be working, BAH. I will persevere!! FIGHTING!!
I've been given a commission too--- I don't remember how long of a time it has been. This guy, named Tony, who's a chef at my workplace, has been waiting ever so patiently for it, although he has been asking about it every time I see him. It's a portrait of him and his two kids that he has never met. He only has two pictures of them, of which I am referencing from.
My head is throbbing right now, but I still want to finish at least 1 out of 2 essay responses tonight... wahh ahhhhhh...

Digital Illustration #1
This was done for a Portrait project in my Digital Illustration class. I was randomly assigned to do a portrait of someone else in the class and incorporate their 3 or 4 found objects in any way. Since Adrianna's found objects consisted of tree bark, hairlike tree stuff, and twigs, I wanted to do an earthy picture of her. She is also a mother of two kids, so it made me think of drawing her with an ethereal essence with her hair intertwined with things of nature. I would have done many things differently, but I was kind of burned out from other illustration projects, in which I am more proud of... Hopefully I'll be getting those back soon, because I still haven't taken pictures of them and whatnot... Through Adobe Photoshop, I layered some pictures of the bark and twigs that Adrianna took to provide texture for the hair. For her face I used the brush tools, and played with opacity, dodge and burn tools. Enjoy~
