Today I'm bringing you a new project, The 115, in preparation for my Major Project in January. From now until January I will be bringing you a series of wacky drawings once per day! These drawings will be the basis of my Major Project. 

Here is the first of these drawings "Toothpaste Fish". Only another 114 to go!

Personal: A Return to Drawing

As you may have noticed the work on my blog stopped around April time. Unfortunately at that time I was struggling with personal issues around anxiety and I interrupted from the course to have some time to de-stress and feel better. 

The good news is that I did start to feel better! However after leaving the course I was so terribly anxious around drawing that for months I couldn't pick up a pen and draw, honestly it was incredibly hard as it felt that something major to me was missing.

But it's not all doom and gloom because today I beat it, I drew something. 

I really enjoyed playing around in Sketchbook Pro 2018 (It's free for students so try it out) and I ended up with this Bird Wizard character! 

I'm glad to be back drawing and until I return to complete my Major project in January, expect more!

Minor Project: Reflective Statement

Within the Minor Project I feel that my success was mostly in the first half of my project. 

When deciding on a project idea I felt with this project I came to a decision pretty quickly, something I had struggled with before. Knowing my weaknesses of starting off slow, and the anxieties I feel starting a new project I worked with tutors to ensure I was ontrack early. For these first weeks I felt very successful in the work I was producing and any problems were solved quickly because I was asking for help. 

Later on however I was confronted by personal issues which lead me away from help within the course and threw me off track and unfortunately it felt a little like I never really got back to a place in which I was comfortable with the work I was producing. Therefore the work I produced for my submission was not to a standard I wanted but the best I could produce within the time left. 

This project was essentially a translation of drawings and information provided and although they were fairly successful, some models were were more successful than others. For me the best translation was the Spider, the drawing was simple and therefore this was easier to translate over the other models such as the ferret which I feel is the least successful. 

I really like the concept of this project however towards the end of the Minor project, although I was determined to finish it in a good place, I did stop enjoying it. This is a factor I believe in why it wasn't as successful as I had hoped it to be, the lack of enjoyment meant that I was less able to stay determined and push through. 

I have however had a positive time with this project, learning new skills in Maya and improving upon my rigging knowledge. I also had success in a professional way by asking six voice over artists for their talents and with branding my blog.

Moving forward I will no longer be continuing this project as a year long project as I had originally intended but instead be starting a new project for the Major and taking these successes with me.
