I don’t know how but I convinced my professor to let me work digitally on the in class final. Step one of many.

I will post a better image once it’s done :)

My first time digital painting in color done in class. I learned something from doing this… all class I worked on this and my professor would come over and show me that I was doing it wrong. This is the first time I have digitally painted the figure from life with a professor standing over me. I would start my way but he would come over and correct me causing me to start it over. *So this piece is only about a 35 minute drawing.* I realized everyone has their own way of working in digital based on what and how they work traditionally. See my preferred mediums are pen, ink wash, acrylic wash, watercolor and rarely gouache. So I tend to work transparently building up with either sketchy lines like this or comic book like line work. My professor *who’s preferred medium is oil* paints digitally JUST like an oil painting! And I can’t oil paint so I can’t think like an oil painter when it comes to digital. And I think it frustrated him as much as it did me that I was unable to paint digitally as if I was painting in oils…

Hi Jenny! I'm currently an animation major in my 2nd semester of Sophomore year. I realized that animating just isn't my thing. I love it and I'd enjoy doing it for myself or maybe in a professional setting, but in a school environment it just isn't working out. I want to concentrate more on the Visual Development and Storytelling side of animation, but the animation major doesn't focus on it. I was thinking about switching to illustration w/focus in ent. Can you tell me how the classes are?

Sure thing Anon! Illustration Entertainment is like half illustration classes and half animation classes but focuses on the storytelling aspect. You will get to take things such as Visual Development, Fund. Illustration, Visual Storytelling, Character Design, Figure Painting, Animal Drawing, Environment Design, Computer Illustration, Storyboarding for Entertainment and more! The main focus of the major is learning how to become a stronger artist in the range of drawing animals, people and environments while telling successful story’s through the visuals *whether that is through one illustration or a specific character or environment. The one thing I will say is do not expect any digital painting classes, we don’t have it and the closest you will get during junior year is computer imaging, digital drawing and digital matte painting. *This is usually a deal breaker for students considering the major although I myself don’t have too much of a problem*. So if your not good with photoshop painting, it may be a good idea to practice since you will be using it a lot in character, environment and visual storytelling. (This is something I have been trying to get them to fix for a while now.) Hope this helped you out Anon! If you have any more questions please don’t hesitate to ask! :3
