This was my favorite class last year.... 2D

now its drawing... cause all my 2D classes are on computers this year (those machines hate me so much). Anyway, I'll show you what I did in this class. One of the first projects was to render a building from a picture, it was fun. I learned about composition without realizing I was learning about it :p It was also my first time using gouache (I love this medium. I need more practice, but I like it ) here are some roughs

I liked the japanese one, but it had many details, and I didn't have a lot of time... so here's the final piece

For the next one, we had to use the first letter of our first and last names and add some details to it that could be related to us, it was like making a new font. It was fun! Mine had poodles and candy.

I had a great idea for the next one, but I guess at that time it was harder for me to actually take the things that were on my mind and put them on paper. Anyway, we had to make a combination of textures, shapes, and  animals creating an interesting composition. I choose a monarch butterfly, a quetzal, and something called god's eye made by the Huichol people in my country. Here my first rough (which I like more) and the final piece painted with gouache. Its the bird the part I didn't like... I sort of felt like there were anatomy issues with my rough... but now I'm not sure about it... anyway you learn by making mistakes :p

At some point in the course we had to do the logo for any company or organization we liked. I choose to make a logo for my dad's company. A company dedicated to help people with diabetes that have the risk of losing a foot.
Here is what I came up with. The company name is Lazasi. I liked it more than the logo he already had, but it was really hard to do for me cause I didn't know how to use Illustrator at the time. And now that I know how to use it... well I still prefer to use gouache. The darker parts on the foot are supposed to represent gangrene.

This is all for today, I hope everyone one has a great holiday. Merry Christmas!

Dear 24 hours diary.....

Oh Christmas break.... I love you! This time I'm posting something I'm like 75% proud of: the 24 hours diary I did last term in my 2D class. I won't lie, I had to pull two all nighters to do it, but I think it looks decent, and it was fun! I didn't do a lot of thumbnails for this. I always had on my mind the idea that I wanted something inspired by Alice in Wonderland (because I love that concept! every girl wants to be like Alice right?). I'll show you some roughs.

and the final piece painted with gouache
