Attending the Academy of Art University online.
I'm reattending and changing my major to Illustration. Do I want to do something in this field as a career? No idea, what I know is, I want to learn and develop skill in my main hobby. People tell me, "oh but you should be in the medical field, in the business field, focus on what you can make a "real" job in"-- oh hells no. The thing is guys, life is short. For all we know, honestly, I could not be here tomorrow! I want to live life my way and smile about it. Sure, I still have a job in the sales field, but it's not a job I want to always have forever. Do I want to be a sort of artist? Yes, I'd prefer that. Is that a realistic goal? It can be if I make it one of my primary goals! Right?
Anyway, thinking about all of this made me rethink my major in school. I was attending the AAU for graphic design courses previously just because my company paid for that field. I had no passion for it. It was not a smart decision for myself.
I like drawing, not really typography and designs for products/film. Just not quite my cup of coffee ^U~
But- what I've learned is drawing is art made for display - but not quite telling a story.
Illustration is meant to tell a story. I want to learn to do this; I want to show more emotions, understand anatomy, understand how to draw body mass, create interesting characters (not just human ones), display different moods using lighting and so much more so I decided illustration is the best course for me. For now, I'm attending this university online as I don't live any where close to California (lol) but I learn a lot .__. I learned so much in my graphic design courses before, oh my gosh, it was even overwhelming at some points!
Yep! Well, now I'm back into that school ready to learn. My first two courses are History of Gaming and Anatomy 2. We'll see what I learn!
Oh, I just saw a really heart warming message in my inbox at my school and ah, it made me smile huge ;v;
Hey there, just wanted to say that I haven been a fan of your Deviant art some time, I had no idea you went to AAU, its an honor to have you as a class mate.
This made me smile so big ah. ;v; I feel so, blushy blushy LOL.
Also, look at these other gifts & commissions I've gotten!
And these features of great artists!
I wanted to let you guys know I may be a bit slower responding to notes (I won't make you wait more than 72 hrs for notes though), comments, and so forth. I also won't be live streaming as often. In addition, I may be going through my gallery and submitting things into storage so if there's any commissions or gifts you'd like to keep, please save them now
Well, I gotta get to studying for quizzes and class discussions now. I just wanted to update you guys! Thanks for EVERYTHING!
