I'm so much cooler online by Malindachan I'm so much cooler online by Malindachan
Final assignment for Painting class.

It's oil on canvas, and if the top photo gives any general idea how big it is....it's a 2'x3' canvas.

We were supposed to make a collage centered around either ourselves or some idea in pop culture, and I chose to make a self-portrait of sorts. It was ok to do something a bit simple because we didn't have a whole lot of time to get them done.

There were some things I was planning to add on originally, but there's no way I'd be able to include them before it's due tomorrow. We technically have two hours of class time because it's a 2 hour final exam period, so I might make some more adjustments to it if my professor thinks it needs them. He says accuracy isn't as important; He's grading it based on how it stands as a painting.

So yeah! this is what has been contributing to my lack of free time! Oh, and that landscape painting...it's at the studio though, so I'll post a pic of it after I get it back (I'm more proud of that one lol).
Still have another few finals coming up this week, and then I'll get caught up with my inbox ^.^

Sources used for design:

[link] - my bookmark of Judai chibi with Winged Kuriboh. Judai is one of my fav. characters along with Yusei, and Winged Kuriboh is one of my fav. duel monsters (along with Burstinatrix and Stardust dragon, but I wanted to keep this simple lol).

The background is the back of a Yugioh card. Yugioh/GX/5D's is my biggest obsession (but I'm sure you all know that already, lol)

Yugioh is (c) Kazuki Takahashi
Title is from the song "Online" by Brad Paisley

It's awesomeness is . . . OVER 9000! I love how so many people will incorperate anime into their school projects. One of my best friends had to make a poster for her science class for genetic mutations. She had to make up a mutation, but she had to go by the rubric. She gave the teacher the exact opposite of what the teacher wanted, but it was exactlly what the teacher wanted all at the same time. She got an A and an awesome Monkey D. Luffy wanted poster out of it. >w<

practicing and taking classes are really helpful. I got a lot of practice out of taking drawing and art courses, and they help in the long run. try drawing things that are normally hard to draw (like hands, the human figure, portraits, whatever). It's still hard for me sometimes to come up with stuff out of my head, and sometimes I'll look at references in order to draw things in proportion and accurately.

i dont care how much you say "I was lazy" or "because it was easier" this painting is made of win on more levels that I can truly describe to you. I LIKE IT A LOT. its light hearted and fun, playful and it gives the right impression based on your reasonings (as I can determine from the artists comments). I HOPE YOU GOT AN A+

digital art was hard at first because I had no idea how to use photoshop until I took a class for it in college. And at first, I didn't have a tablet, so my earlier stuff was stuff I had to scan in and use the mouse to color and stuff.

so its just a talent that graduated over a long period of time?
so how was getting into digital art? Was it hard/tricky to adapt to or was that also something that you quickly figured out?

I've been doodling since I learned how to pick up a pencil and use it. Art has always been my favorite subject growing up, and I was one of the few kids that preferred "Art" days over "PE" in elementary school. I mostly tried mimicking Disney stuff at first, but it turned into game and anime related fanart when I got into middle school and further on. Most of the stuff I did was pencil/colored pencils, but I caught on pretty fast with other medias in my art classes. I didn't really start digital art until I graduated high school because I didn't have photoshop until I went to college.

they can be expensive, but you can save a lot of money if you get them while they're on sale. there was a special at hobby lobby where you could get two smaller canvases of this type for only $10 (I used one for a landscape painting I have yet to put online), but this large 2x3 foot canvas cost me $25 when it was not on sale.
