how are you? oh I've missed you so. so many things have happened since i last wrote to you. ramadhan is over, eid was fantastic, i gained weight, bought a new car, and i'm already in my second week of college! how time flies, yes yes? Raya's always been a big thing for family. some shots :
i recently bought some Prismacolor pens for DFA. it's my first time really buying a set like this, i've only bought one or two Copics before. theyre awesome and i cant wait to start using them like julian did. i also compiled a bunch of my pens (finally-theyre always all over the place) and... surprisingly i have alot more than i expected! maybe i'm not that thrifty after all... (esp with art materials)
i've also come to the stage where i start labelling my pencil boxes. different classes require different tools and its always frustrating when you forget a pencil or a putty eraser just because they're in another pencil box. c'est la vie, such is life of an animation student.
abyways, we all started assignmenting with Maya. still a newbie, but i'm really excited to learn more.
How's my greek temple? ;)
and for drawing for animation, we got flipbook assignments. last sem, it took me a whole month of procrastinaton + research and 2 full days to make a lightbox and actually drawing the stuff. below: homemade lighbox lulz. made of : a box, plexiglass, layout paper, putty eraser and your standard issue ikea lighbulb. it's actually very functional in a sense that it's portable and can be used anywhere with a power source. conclusion, khalis is a genius.
on top of the marker renderings, primitive drawings, photography research, line animation, it's 2 flipbooks per week. i only remembered to record one of them.
wawawa aint life swell. k, you've seen the pictures. i'm off to continue with my life.
