Oral pleasure eh? You're stuff is great so far, and I really dig that Super Mario picture you did as well. I don't really have any critique to give you, it seems like you're already on the right track. Keep it up, I'd like to see where your art goes from here.
I keep avoiding updating until I get some polished thesis sketches together, but I threw out everything last week. I'll post the rejects eventually. Until then, watercolor studies and sketches for A Space Odyssey
Wow. For someone who doesn't like drawing mechanical things, you sure do it well. I really like that you do a lot of watercolour work...I would have drawn lines first for the models, and THEN coloured them in, thus ruining the look of the thing.
Sorry to hear about the department head. I think they sometimes have been where they are for so long that they forget where they were, and how long it took them to get there. They forget that art is a journey, and that just like life, we're always learning new things, always growing and developing. Sometimes it takes longer to reach a waypoint in the journey than others. Don't sweat it. You're a fine artist, and as far as I can tell, you have nothing to apologize for.
I've had to throw out everything I've done and start again. Twice. The journey for one of the pieces:
the artsy conceptual direction that gets me smacked down
embracing that it is a story about a retarded boy killing animals
more of the same, unsure of the direction still
finally approved by my teacher
and this, the silly final in progress. But I am pretty pleased with that arm. Look at that arm. Just look at it.
Funny thing is, I was so worried about being too tasteless, but I've only recently realized I haven't been tasteless enough for the story. Oh well. I suppose my goal is now to deliver deviants rendered to the best of my ability
