It could be one of the many questions that float in your head in this moment,if you really are intrested in my art or any other thing i post here or there...more here than there

Well,there are two main reasons :

The first one,the study. Most of you already know that i study engineering,so you can easily guess everything implied with that.

And there's the second one....i'll let the image talk first

These are works i had to do with a lot of other people i the past three weeks.

The first one,drew by one of my friends,took only two days to complete,and it was made 1st and 2nd of June for the anniversary of the Italian Republic. It measure almost 25 square meters.

The second one has a different story...It was a 'fast' project for a church that asked for a work for the 'Corpus Domini',a religious festival that happen in June...so on 7th June,after a nice travel made in the rear of a van while i sat on a broken chair,we made that...it pratically took us a lifetime to complete it just in time...me and other 7 people (plus an enormous amount of children),completed it in less than 9 hours...and it measures almost 65 square meters. The main draw was made by a friend of mine,but half of the central panel is my stuff :D

(if you think it's hard to shade with brushes and pastels,try with rice,flour,pepper,mais and such...i dare you all)

The last one is the best. Since 1778 my town prepares to literally cover with petals the main its main street...almost 3000 square meters...
I don't explain everything about it,but in my case,me and my group had to do two works...the main pic at the beginning (which required two days of preparation plus 7 hours of work on street...on saturday night) and a mid picture (that was something really fast...we made it up in less than 3 hours)

Oh,and every work you see is made with petals and seeds...a lot of them...

So this is the main sum of these past three weeks...you can't even imagine how tired i was after all of those works...but in my opinion,they worth every single second spent on them...

Now that the hard work is done,i surely have more time both for drawing and for commissions :) I'll upload a status when i'll be ready to take more of them...

EDIT



So basically this is the end of the update,and as always

Have a nice day :D,

Oh dang, you study/studied engineering too? :D
I know how much of a pain and time-sink that can be to learn, the analytical theory's never straight forward xS

What kind of engineering? Automotive? Mechanical? Civil? ^_^

I'm actually in electronical engineering...

The main problem is that they give us only theory and no pratical experiences...

Electrical? Dang I actually did a bit of that too for a year or so before moving on to Aerospace Engineering.
I do remember it being a lot of circuit theory and maths without much practical work. Unless you counted them model circuit boards which were really just to aid as a physical demonstration rather than highlight any real-world practicality X d

Though if you stick with it, once you study at a high enough level, I bet there'd be practical work that's educational and useful too:)
(Assuming that you're aspiring to be an electrical engineer of sorts? ^_^;)

Indeed there's a lot of theory about linear and non linear circuits...but the main problem is that people can explain everything they know about transistors and their technology....but i'd like to see it in a pratical way...i mean building a real circuit like an active l/p filter...just the easy things...

Working as an engineer would be really cool...both cause i like to create things and because i like to spend hours in front of a project...

But even becoming a teacher wouldn't be that bad :D

I hear that. Learning the theory is one thing, useful and maybe a bit of a drag at times.
But ultimately it's all about wanting to finally get out there and help contribute to designing, building and testing the next big thing Mrk2 ! :D

Can't say I wanna be a teacher myself. Although becoming an experienced guru of sorts in the ways of engineering would be a fine final milestone for me ;)

Indeed,after all it's all about time :) One day probably all this theory will surely be useful :D

Oh well,boht of us are awesome :) I like teaching new things to the others cause i know that one day the could use it in real life :)

And i think that teaching more practical things than tehorical is even a good method...let's say 55% practice and 45% theory :)
