big head & sandpaper hands

So I've finished my portfolio.... I turned everything in and now it's just... the waiting game! A couple of things are still making me nervous.. I need to do financial aid things and I have to check up on my transcripts being sent and blah blah. It's been kind of strange getting back into drawing whatever I want again and doing studies and stuff, I'm really really rusty and just sketching at all feels strange. So I have to get back into it for sure... I've been playing a lot of diablo3 and pigging out lately though :I



figure studies i dug up somewhere


portraits, from photos/life







:I


i only painted the ugly part of this one



Oh! So I thought I might start a segment here on my blog for what I've been listening to each week... because I found some really great music this week, old bands and new ones, listening to some great albums here and there :)

This week I've been listening to::

1) Wonky Doll And The Echo // Pleasant Thoughts 
highlight song : Physical


2) The Antlers // Burst Apart
highlight song : Rolled Together


3) Art of Noise // The Best of the Art of Noise
highlight song : Moments in Love

Art Center Portfolio :o

It's finalllllly done! Well.. I just need to get it printed out and bound now and then I have to write my essay and fill out the app and turn it all in. But I've finally finished the most important part!... I actually went through one more pass of editing after this one here, just to clean up things and make it a little less rough around the edges, but I saved those in CMYK for printing which makes it look all bright and washed out on my monitor so I don't feel like putting it up here.

Anyway... here's a few months of work!.. although I procrastinated a hell of a lot until the very end. :P  
Ummm wish me luck?
:>

it's coming down to it


next two weeks are going to be fulllll of nonstop painting and portfolio work for me, have to get it done..

here's a photo study...


and some old never-shown art i dug up to make this post a little less sparse!
These are all actually from a full year ago, for a project that was dumb and very much scrapped. Was fun to work on for a while though.


















and one movie::

Django Unchained (2012) 4/5



A ridiculously enjoyable movie full of proud jubilance and glee, Django is a stylish romp that is as entertaining as it is over the top.
