End of Fall Quarter Update: Part 1-Illustration

I know, I'm waaaay behind on this blog...
I just finished a great fall quarter at Western-- I probably wouldn't have had it go any other way looking back on it (except for dropping microeconomics right off the bat). I took my first industrial design courses, and they were really challenging and a lot of work, but just as fun as any art class. On top of that, I learned a lot of new things. I'll upload photos of my ID work in a bit (apparently you should take your work out of the plastic cell portfolios before you photograph them...) so for now, here are just a few drawings from my beginning illustration class. I have to say, while I didn't learn much technique-wise, the time we spent on observational drawing is exactly what I needed to improve.

There is a lot more I could post, but they're all nudes will more detail than young eyes should see... I think most of those are my best work from the class, so if you're of a reasonable age and would like to see that work, take this link

That's all for now. Sit tight until I can take some reasonably decent photos of my industrial design stuff. As in, not crappy.

You should get a deviant art account, you can set it to have mature content for certain images and the user has to be 18 to see them. People can also buy prints of your stuff on there as well.
