That Sinking feeling you get as you watch the Kazon fly away in that place you keep your Coffee. Don’t worry Captain, in a few small hours you’ll be sat around a campfire enjoying a nice warm cup of Hogans uniform!
This took the longest time to paint! I thought I was going to go blind… please share generously!
[Ugh, the Kazon… In Voyager’s first season, I was looking forward to see new species found in the Delta Quadrant. Such a disappointment when it was basically a bunch of Klingons who don’t know how to comb their hair or pronounce their own name.]
Week 2 VisDev class progress! Lighting studieeees. For Exterior Architectural shot, I chose to do a garden within the perilous castle where the Water of Life is found. Inspired by Neo-Byzantine architecture and the Butchart Gardens in Canada.
[ cannot adequately express my loathing for the Kazon on Voyager. They’re uninteresting, silly-looking, and completely unbelievable as a real threat to the Voyager crew. Seska is pretty compelling, but I wish the writers had given her better Voyager “enemies” to align herself with. I feel like she was too clever to team up with such dummies!]
Focusing on interiors now for Sketching/Design for Environment. First pass at my interiors. Lots of mistakes and design flaws. So will revise for second pass this weekend! It’s been a great learning experience.
Caffeine Song: David Banner ft. Denim - Dance the Night Away (Watched Footloose remake a few nights ago… Really wanna go line dancing or clubbing now haha) YEEE HAAAWWW!
I’m currently taking Sketching for Environment and Design with Charles Lee at Kazone Art Academy. It’s been a fun class. We were given the freedom to design whatever we wanted. So I came in with the mindset of… “Let’s draw a f**king church/institution because It’ll be freaking hard! I’ll learn a lot from it.”
Once I started drawing it… I was like, “WTF! WAS I THINKING??? THIS IS SO FREAKING TEDIOUS AND ANNOYING!!” (Flips tables). But… In the end I was able to get through my first pass and I learned a lot from it. Most importantly… For me, it built up my confidence, especially since I’ve never drawn buildings before.
The drawing’s a lil rough around the edges… Ok maybe not a lil’ rough. REALLY rough. This is my first pass at the design for my building. Going to take another 2 more passes at it and make sure it’s a clean strong piece to have for show.
I messed up on the perspective. For some reason when I was planning it I decided to go with 3 point only to end up doing 2 point. So it’s a mix of 2-3 point perspective which threw off the image. Second, I will not use warm/cool markers to lay-in unless i’m drawing in pen. The markers are showing up way too much and over powers the graphite. Oh well, live and learn as I say. I failed, I learned, I will do better next time.
Nasty cold and car accident set me off track. Trying my best to catch up with my Sketching and Design for Environment class at Kazone Art Academy.
Here’s a second pass at my interior shot for a church I designed for my class. Lots of mistakes along the way but given my work schedule and family responsibilities, if I can grow a little bit each day that’s a win in my book.
