Note to self, do not stay up till 4 the night before making presentations. Headache is killing, but looking forward to a week sort of downtime to practice some paints. I think the presentation went all right, I definitely felt more comfortable after lunch, and after the public speaking panic lulled, I whizzed through it. Just got to wait months before I know whether it was good enough or not. But I'm happy with how it turned out, the progression through my work makes me feel better about it, YAY self motivation! Starting life drawing next week, its probably been about a year since I last did it so I'm looking forward to that, People are definitely not my strong point, along with cars. So maybe ill practice those a bit more this term. Early night tonight.

That is all.

New Year, New Sh*t?

A new year means a new start, but seeing as I haven’t really finished all my work, I’m still stuck in 2010 for the most part. You said I wouldn’t do work…yeah that’s kind of right, I’ve done a few drawings and finished and improved on different pieces but no where near as much as I would have liked too. Christmas has been pretty hectic and I seem to have been either working to be able to feed myself and drive or trying to see and talk to everyone.

However I did have it in mind to make 2011 more focused. I got a laptop for Christmas so when I go home I can still get my 3D work completed on the weekends. I also got some paints and canvases so I’ve started doing some real paints to get back into the swing of it. I feel stupid not realising last year that my perspective was all wrong, it seems to just happen now without me really taking to much work time. So I guess I’ve been taught well this last couple of months, it seems to have stuck and I seem to have understood all the fancy words and principles, seeing as I seem to explain this to the family and in-laws every time I see them. We’ll I guess im going to have a look at my models, and see if I can’t tweak them more and if I have time possibly re-model them before assessments.

P.S. A new year means a blog post once a week mister.
