Don't want to spend your precious time reading? its k!
Hi watchers, Sorry i haven't been active.
I just thought about it one day around 2 months ago.. What am i going to do when i grow up. I don't like anything dealing with punching in numbers, or law or medicine or whatever. Then it hits me, i have a passion for art. I just love the idea to create, design, and illustrate for a living. Doing what you love for a living. Then i thought to myself again, " are you even good enough? " <-- then that hits me like a hurricane.
I then realize I always drew stuff that I'm used to. I never drew anything i didn't like drawing or i can't do. So basically i kept drawing the same things that i thought i better at. I completely avoided the hard stuff to me, even though i wanted to draw it so badly, like vehicles, environments, architecture... etc. I drew one thing my whole life, anime girls. I never studied any muscle, color, or anatomy ever in my life. I also completely avoided drawing guys because i didn't know how the anatomy works.. I would draw a guy... erase it because of dissatisfaction.. and then draw a girl.
I then joined conceptart.org and lurked around there for a while. I then posted a thread asking about what's the right art college for me with following links to illustrations and concepts i was into. They gave me plenty of replies. I was looking through schools like Parsons, Pratt, SCAD, Sheridan, AAU, and bunch of other schools, but i felt they didn't fit ME.
I then stumbled upon Art Center located in Pasadena near Los Angeles. After countless hours of research, i realized, this is my art college and this is the only art school I'm ever going to. They had the "Entertainment Design" Program and i felt like it was a perfect fit for me. Its basically industrial design + illustration put together. Everything from environments, vehicles, characters, architecture, etc. And the head of the department is Scott Robertson, one of the best! Also located by major game and entertainment film companies so in the summer, they come in and grab you for INTERNSHIPS ZOMG. The average age people attend is 20-23. Also the tuition is heavy, averaging around 245k in tuition alone. I realized this isn't going easy. I knew i had to put in the time and commitment if i want to attend this school.
From that day on, which has been 3 weeks. I've been studying anatomy, drawing like crazy, tried environments, vehicles, architecture, rendering for countless hours. A month has passed since my studies. I realized, I'm progressing a whole bunch! I challenged on difficult poses, and actually knowing how to draw a decent male form. I try to draw every time i get a chance. But i won't post anything on deviant art until i say its worthy enough to be on deviant art. Ahah
, I've got to put everything I've got to attend this school.
Then i found
On deviant art. She was 17 when i discovered her, I think shes 18 now. Her work is highly advanced for a high school senior. She got accepted for the Entertainment Design program at Art Center for fall 2009. And her portfolio was highly professional. This makes me even more motivated. I have until March 1st, 2010 to turn in my portfolio. Until then, I'm going to work my ass off reaching to the level required to being accepted for that program, at that school.
I really thank and appreciate it for reading this LONG AND BORING journal entry, but its an idea what I'm going through. Thanks again! I still wished i realized this A LONG time ago. I'll still keep my ugly deviantart submissions here so i can laugh at how bad i was before.
