horror movies

practice work from illustration class, scratchboard. For an article about how horror movies have changed in time.

Haven't tried scratchboard in YEARS, so I was pretty terrified to start working with it! Turned out alright, though.

In my school it's not possible to study illustration as major, so I only have some courses. I had one illustration class last year and the course is usually about 1-2 weeks long, we simply just illustrate a lot of short articles/chapters. And we always have just one hour to complete illustration. I'm third year graphic design student.
Jeez man, I'm in my first semester of graphic design and all I want to do is go into illustration. And looking at your stuff, I think you would really do well in that field. I mean that.

Graphic design and illustration really go hand in hand, so to me at least what I learn from graphic design can be applied to illustration even though the assignments aren't directly illustrations at all. These just illustration courses are fun though, when it's all about traditional media and trying out new techniques. To me illustration is mostly a self taught thing...but being among other talented students, receiving critique and having tight schedule on finishing the illustrations is excellent practice. I appreciate your comment :) I do my best to improve and get actual jobs every once in a while too haha.
Hey, anytime! Always a pleasure to see what you post.
