Oh this is awkward, I thought today was Wednesday... 

This is my Fear assignment.

I was suppose to pick an article from, and use watercolor.
I picked "Science Explains What Really Causes the Munchies," and the article explained that THC mess with your sense of smell by testing this theory with lab mice.

Fear : Digital Cityscape with three buildings

"Fear" Assignment

Medium: Acrylic
Subject: Find an article on to illustrate for inclusion in their print magazine

Title of the article : 
Why It's Getting Harder to Sue Illegal Movie Downloaders

Jewel Thieves

Prompt: A boy and his dog with focus on point of view and composition. Digital.

Fear Assignment

Medium: Acrylic

Subject: Mostly empty room, with two objects in it; the room has a window through which we can see a landscape.

Fear Final

I am afraid to draw feet and use watercolor.
I never used gouache before, so I asked Dana if I can use it for this project.

I drew two kids playing at the playground. I used toothbrush to make the dirt texture. Also, someone mentioned that I should try giving different weights to the line. Therefore, I used brush pen to draw outlines. I liked using gouache. Using brush pen was a bit difficult.

Fear of Gouache

Medium: Gouache
Assignment: At least 3 people doing something in a specific environment

Fear Assignment

Medium: Gouache
Subject: Mostly empty room, with two objects inside

This was actually really fun! I feel a lot better using gouache now, though I want to practice a lot more with it.

Fear Assignment

Medium: Acrylics
Subject: Mostly empty room, with two objects (stuffed panda and bed), and a window to a landscape

Kind of took some liberties with the window, and made it a portal, more representative as to what this was like for me. I can't paint to save my life. It's like my own personal hell.

Fear Final

Guache, Narrative still life.

Fear assignment

Medium : Gouache....
Subject: at least two old people over 65..

I am not fond of drawing old people because they are so easy to mess up.
And Gouache is so hard to use.....:(
I decided to do old couple wedding.

Fear Final

Cityscape done in Gouache.

Geppi's Sketches

I went to Geppi's today because I had house stuff on Saturday!

Fear Assignment

I never do anything digitally and I typically hate political cartoons so that was my assignment. This is based off of an article from about Elizabeth Warren (D) and Marco Rubio (R) recently passing a bill protecting veterans from scammers hiding under the guise of "Veteran's Assistants"

Fear - Final Illustration

Digital Narrative Still Life
I have never worked digitally before, it was scary but overall a good experience.

Fear Final Work

My fear was trying some realistic things with pencil.
Also I am not friendly with pencil...
Pencil drawing was boring and hard to me, so I tried to overcome it by add my favorite subject: an owl in the jar.

Fear Final Illustration

My subject was an children's illustration involving a bear, a goat, a meerkat, and a penguin chick in watercolor.

Fear Assignment

gouache still-life with patterned objects

Fear Assignment

Medium: Acrylic
Prompt: A narrative image centered around the feet of at least 2 people; with a specific light source.

Fear Final

Prompt: Cityscape

I decided to stick to the grayscale for my first digital attempt.
Also when I saved it as a jpeg, I feel that it came out a bit darker and some areas weren't as smooth.

Fear Final

Medium: watercolor (and I got kind of excited about the texture I could achieve with colored pencils)
Prompt: three people in a specific environment.
