The Post Before the Disappearing Act

The school break has started, and I have just a few days to pack up, say my goodbyes and go off into the woods for two months. Unfortunately we've had a tragedy in my family and inspiration isn't really driving me right now, so I haven't been making anything noteworthy. And the animation is at a halt until I resolve my after effects issues..
Above is WIP shot of a comic short I'm working on, themed around Valentine's Day. It should be around 20 pages or so. Considering how slow of a worker I am, I probably will finish it by next Valenine's day..

The work above was an acrylic painting for my mom's birthday of her and my dad's trip to Paris.

This isn't too clear, but is currently a website design idea I'm working for redoing my site which is too horrendous and anime obsessed for the average eye...

Moar 3D

This was my final project for 3D class which I am kinda happy with. I'm glad I took photos before going on the city bus as some parts of her got destroyed..

I am too poor to buy proper sculpey so I dug around old high school supplies till I managed to find some old pieces of it, hence the flourescent colour throw up..

Hectic Hectic

A quick midnight pencil sketch that is turning into some photoshop fun. Dear lord I hate photoshop. How the hell do people make such masterpieces in an hour? I've been at this one for about 2 hours.

A few life drawings from my sketchbook back from um..February I think. 3-10 minutes. Both these models rock.

Life has been overwhelming lately and I've had not much time for school art, let alone personal stuff. On top of everything, my after effects has failed me and I'm having to redo the animation composition...whenever free time chooses to happen for me that is. Mostly it's been the usual bus sketches and whatnots.
My classmates got their portfolio results back and only a few got into animation, the poor chaps. But, those who did get in are going to go FAR. I got a nice part time job offer from X'ian, China for next year and will probably sign the contract by the end of the week once negotiations are done. I can't wait to get over there but at the same time I am terrified.
Otherwise, I'm working out like mad to get in shape for my first year of treeplanting, buying every bug dope in existence and ridiculous gear. I have a stupid dream of looking really rugged and badass once the planting season is over and scaring a few people on the city bus..heheh. Assuming I survive and can keep up to the planting standards.
