I'm new to Deviantart as far as becoming a member. I've known about it for years and I decided that I'll become a part of the Deviant Family.
I've been researching how to create more compelling digital paintings. There are so many techniques and artists to learn from. I've decided to follow the teaches of Chris Oatley. His site is awesome. I just wish I had to do his assignments and do all of the work required for my classes. Trying to write a children's book and illustrate it has been a real challenge. I'm confident that I'll pull it off, but my goodness. It is sooooo much work.
Burning the Midnight Oil
I stayed up pretty late trying to finish my story for my children's book. It's been really challenging to complete. I'm sure their are some edits that need to be done, but it's time to move on to the illustrations. It's going to be difficult to choose just five scenes to illustrate.
Writing My Story
Trying to finish writing my children's book so that I can begin my illustrations. Hopefully, I'll be able to post some things soon. My brain is exhausted trying to figure out how I want my book to flow. I hope the vocabulary that I'm using is not too advanced for an 8 year old. 😁
So I'm close to graduating with a MFA in Illustration and at the moment I'm still a little undecided about my thesis project. It's a big challenge. I'm having to do a lot of research and soul searching, but I'm sure the entire thesis will manifest when I least expect it to. So, I'll continue to brainstorm, sketch and anything else I have to do to get this done.
