So critique when pretty well today. Apparently, this illustration does not have any real world applications. According to my photo professor, I need to conform more to "industry standards" to have a place out there.

I nodded my head a lot, and said "ok" more times than I can count, but I think I'll just keep doing what I'm doing.

Where have I been?

Outside of course.

These are test shots of some works in progress.




This is the setup for "a."

Everything from all three setups (except plant in
foreground of "c.") is bristol board painted with
spray paint.

The final versions of these will be shot with color
4x5 film... fingers crossed.

I've been watching movies, animated movies mostly. Movies I've been putting off watching for years. For example, Howl's Moving Castle, Nausicaรค of the Valley of the Wind, Cowboy Bebop: The Movie, Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, and Peter and the Wolf. You might notice a trend in most of these movies. I can't explain it. It just kind of happened that way. Most of it could be attributed to trying to watch two movies in particular, never being able to find them online, and then stumbling upon these other titles in my quest.

Also, a reminder. 4 square season is back in effect.
