I did a thing with my icon for the month of October. My handle Eidolon Night is from Edgar Allen Poe- “Where an Eidolon, named Night, On a black throne reigns upright”
Trying out a new pen
Just got my 2 art pieces back from being framed for the upcoming student show! So excited! #illustration #LCAD #gallery
Hi Eidolon! i'm sorry to bother you but I just wanted to ask some questions about LCAD. I'm an international student and LCAD's illustration entertainment major really caught me and now I'm interested in applying soon. The Illustration entertainment major has almost everything i could want in a program. But i'm also not familiar with the american system, do you have to register for certain classes per semester? as compared to a fixed timetable? Meaning different classmates per class etc...? :)
Hey Anon, it’s no bother at all! I love helping in any way I can! I’m not too familiar on how international colleges work so I will try to answer as best as I can! Generally you would sign up for 15-18 units a semester (about 5-6 classes ranging from 4-7 hours). There is a guideline the school makes you follow in which you must take certain classes once you reach a certain year level *sometimes you cannot advance without filling the class requirements. Even though your classmates will more than likely be different in each class, they will end up sticking with you in some classes as you progress through the years. Again, I’m sorry Im not too versed in international inquiries like this. Your best bet would be to email LCAD admissions for complete information. Hope this helps, don’t hesitate to ask! :D
Hey I'm an animation student at another school but was thinking of transferring to LCAD.. What's the required course load for Illustration with Entertainment Emphasis like? I've already taken a lot of the animation courses at my current school and I know some of them overlap but I wanted to know what they asked for in your major.. Thank you..
Hey Anon! I have no idea when you sent this so I hope this is not too late, hah! In my major we take classes from animation such as: Character Design 1&2, Visual Development, Environment Design, Figure Drawing for Animators and Story boarding. So if you have those then your in luck and have nearly half the requirement done! If you have more animation classes *like Animation 1 or 2* then you could always consider taking Illustration as your major with an Animation Minor which requires you take 1 semesters worth of animation classes! Luckily since my major does not have to do any animating but focus primarily on visual development, the work load isn’t as intense *not like what I hear from animation students at least* Hope that helps! :D
Sorry I haven’t posted sketches for this week, I got sick. But here are my thumbnail layouts for my comic class!
A quick one hour warmup sketch of Poison Ivy for Sketch Dailies
Sketch selfie I forgot to post
Updated selfie time!
Another character design warmup but this is an animal mixer of a shrew and bird (birew) using only black brushpen.
