Just maybe! Anyways the reason I haven't been about chatting and whatnot is my sculpture class. I'm all done with the coursework now and would like to share these images of them with you:

People, braids and ties, cuts )

Yeah, not much else to say.

Well, I almost have some paintings done. I'll have a grand total of six done tomorrow. And I'll post some images. Cause I'm awesome that way.

I did for the first time actually sit down and finish a painting that I started in class. I'm quite excited about that.

That's the report from the life of Bohks.

Its been a while since I've drawn some fanart. I've got a nice tablet mouse, two human drawing classes, and most of a painting class under my belt now. So here's my newest fanart that's being drawn on the computer mostly out of laziness.

It's a Hiruma-Mamori drawing and no, that's not all of it )

Which should be compared to this piece, my second most recent fanart. Yes, he's on both of them, you might have to scroll.

I won't know exactly how far I've come until I get to the end, but I can say I'm off to a decent start this time.

Also, standing while painting for 6 hours straight results in feet that hurt. In case anyone is wondering.

I didn't have much issue with this one.

My favorite slice of life anime )

I do have ASME news too. The conference (well at least my part of it) was last weekend. Click here to see what became of my event (which was the Student Design Competition and I was with Oregon State Univeristy).

I'll post a more detailed entry about my machine's misadventures later, right now I'm quite tired. Not surprising really, I've been sleeping very irregularly lately because of ASME.

Your result for What Your Taste in Art Says About You Test...

Traditional, Vibrant, and Tasteful

9 Islamic, -10 Impressionist, 2 Ukiyo-e, -12 Cubist, -7 Abstract and -2 Renaissance!

Islamic art is developed from many sources: Roman, Early Christian, and Byzantine styles were taken over in early Islamic architecture; the architecture and decorative art of pre-Islamic Persia was of paramount significance; Central Asian styles were brought in with various nomadic incursions; and Chinese influences . Islamic art uses many geometical floral or vegetable designs in a repetitive pattern known as arabesque. It is used to symbolize the transcendent, indivisible and infinite nature of Allah.


People that like Islamic art tend to be more traditional people that appreciate keeping patterns that they learned and experienced from their past. It is not to say that they are not innovative personalities, they just do not like to let go of their roots. They like to put new ideas into details and make certain that they will work before sharing them with others. Failure is not something they like to think about because they are more interested in being successful and appreciated for their intelligence. These people can also be or like elaborate things in their life as long as they are tasteful. They tend to prefer geometric patterns and vibrant colors.

My first anime crush )

So I had a very unproductive contribution to my project, other than I was asked to attempt to make a part. Again. For the fifth time (needed to make two, failed first two, bunged up and got C- minuses on the second two). Mostly because one just looks like crappppppp. And yeah. I am not to put crappppp on the machine if I can help it.

Also, in another note, I read the label on my Zyrtec (allergy meds). Aparently I'm not supposed to operate machinery while using them.

...Well damn. Already done that. Multiple times.

*snort* And I'm about to do it again.

I feel awesome or something akin to that.

Why?

I just took a can of Canned Air and blew all of the dust out of my computer. It's running much better now (more quietly, quickly, and being more cooperative in general). Clearly dust is its enemy and its much happier to be running without it.

In other news, squee is an awesome word.

Thank you for listening.

My roommate and I came up with this awesome idea. She's going to dress as Hiruma Youichi for Halloween and I will be Clifford D. Lewis.

Here's a pic of most of what I have of my costume for those who wonder just how crazy I am being:



Well actually what is not featured is that I have pants, shoes, shirt, and all of the parts to make my coat- I just need to put them together. I am lacking the football. And the ability to throw it not like crap.

Please be honest, do you think this stuff is good enough to get me into art school?

EDIT: I just took all of my artwork down to protect it in case my teachers feel possessed to look it up online or something.

Comments? Questions?

So I tell people I'm moving back to my place and getting online again then I don't. That happens to be something I hate receiving so I'm very, very very sorry that it happened. Real life's been.... interesting to say the least.

Right now I'm working on my portfolio for entry into art school. I've been taking pictures like a mad woman and eventually I'll post some of the stuff I submitted here (so you can have a taste for what kind of art I do). Actually, I would appreciate feedback when I do get around to doing that.

Also, I got offered a house sitting job and since I kind of don't have personal spending money, I decided to take it. Which means I have limited internet access for the moment.

Then, on top of all of this, my ASME team decided they needed me pulling long shop hours to help build. Which means from about 9 to 5 PST time, I'll probably be in a machine shop busting my ass.

Yay.

Anyways, that's the outlook. I hope to be on again in the evenings regularly after this next Tuesday.

Until then, I leave you with this art piece teaser. This isn't the portfolio picture I'm submitting of this piece, but it's a good photograph because I'm in it and that gives you a sense of the size of the thing:

Image under cut to save space )

Its a steampunk found-object wasp made from old brassy lamp, chandelier, and other miscellaneous lighting fixture parts. This was made for my ART 291 Sculpture I class. It cost $128.74 dollars to make and me and my partner (she's the one taking the photograph) sold it for $400.

Well- it turns out that white stuff on my ceiling was the maintenance they were supposed to do. It just took them an insanely long time to go forth and bother to tell me this.

Good news is I'm moving the hell back soon. YAY FOR BEING OUT OF MY PARENT'S PLACE!!

Not that I don't love my folks, I just want my space and my home back.

Just so everyone knows-

I'm not dead!

The last two days were spent avoiding heat (aka being too hot for my laptop). And re-reading lots of Mercedes Lackey books because clearly my love of the Heralds of Valdemar Series has not lessened in the slightest. Also, I talked to Kana (she plays Ganondorf on the Traverse Town RP we host on IJ)- and I think I've got her hooked on Heralds of Valdemar and Girl Genius. I feel win.

Also- on a completely different note- I kick series ass at Link's Crossbow Training.
