More quick updates and uneventful nonsense! HUZZAH!*Note # is not accurate. Maybe. Possibly.
I keep forgetting to make an update journal and it's painfully obvious considering it's been months since my last update. I'll try to keep it concise to not bore anyone to death!
First of all, new!college adventures are going fantastic
! I have been enjoying my classes so much (except math, but even that's not too bad). Color Theory is pretty lax and the assignments aren't too strict since it's foundational, but even so the assignments are really creative (like my recent Board Game submission). My Drawing for Sequential class is pretty uneventful in terms of big projects, but I feel like I have learned so much already with the large amount of practice homeworks we've been doing. I literally think I've learned more about human anatomy in the last 7 weeks than I have in years. And what's hilarious? We're learning perspective now. The bane of my existence. And it actually makes sense.
Hopefully now my perspectives won't look like total crap but no promises on that!
We only have 3 weeks left and I know I have at least 2 assignments I'll probably post up here. It's definitely been a fun ride and a good first start to this new venture. I signed up for my classes in Fall so I'm hoping it goes just as well. Really enjoying it so far! The workload is double what I had previously and deadlines really rush up on you, but it's been invigorating and I haven't fallen behind (yet). So it's been good!
City life has been pretty okay too. It's still not quite to the comforts of home, but I'm enjoying it too. It's nice to be able to walk around to classes in such a beautiful city, and I've needed the exercise. Maybe by the end of Fall quarter I'll feel comfortable driving around without assistance. Already I've figured out how to get around basic areas without getting horribly lost. Oh one-way streets, you are so devilish.
After school lets out I'll be taking a week break to vacation before returning home for summer break. Once that happens I'll have more free time to do things again! Funny that this will be my first summer in a couple years where I'm not taking classes. Of course it won't be all fun and games. If you all remember the illustration gig I got end of last year? The books finally went to print so they will be up for sale sooner or later! Now I need to work on the next book(s) for the same client. I'm not sure yet on the specs of that one, but I'll be working on that over the summer as well. Now that I got everything figured out from the first one, and I won't have to worry about preparing for school like my last break, I should still have plenty of time left over for my own work.
In that time, I'll be trying to make a buffer for The Selection
and hopefully get the new prologue out. I'm not too worried about getting the redo pages for Chapter 1 underway as much as I am about that prologue. Since the old prologue is discounted currently, it's got a huge gap I want to fill in and not take forever on. New pages will also progress at the same time, as always.
As for current updates, I'm falling behind about a week and as it has been generally, I can't make promises on updates. They'll happen when they happen. The next page is underway, though! I'm going to finish up some school work this weekend and squeeze it in when I can. So there may be a page, there may not. It's a surprise! Ooh, I also want to add, if you happen to see me "Online" here on dA, it doesn't necessarily mean I'm actually online. I look at my messages frequently throughout the day on my phone, but I rarely reply to things/comment on things on it. So if I don't reply to a message, it's not that I'm ignoring you, it's simply that I'm not on a computer to do so! I'll get to it eventually, though, so no worries! Same with backlog replies and such. I still have them, and I usually will reply to them, I am just slow!
That's all for this update. Party hard y'allbut not too hard
and have a fab summer!
