12/16/16 End of Fall Semester

Fall semester has ended and the holidays are coming up! This fall I tried out photography for the first time and got to know both Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. I also worked a bit on my drawing skills in my Intro to Drawing class! Overall it's been a good past few months!!

The following are my favorite pieces from my Digital Media class. I went out and took a bunch of photos focusing on my beloved Brick Chapel in Historic St. Mary's City, Maryland. I edited the colors to follow my assignment.

As my final class assignment I chose to make a graphic novel page in Adobe Illustrator. I wasn't sure what to use as my subject matter so I adapted an excerpt from Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre (my favorite book!), editing it slightly to fit in my layout. Naturally, I owe a lot to the genius Charlotte Brontë and her amazing novel.

Credit to Cary Fukunaga's  Jane Eyre  (2011) because I referenced Michael Fassbender's Rochester for my last frame! I also referenced Sofia Coppola's  Marie Antoinette  (2006) for the woman's pose in the last two frames so credit goes out to that as well!

The following projects were all completed for my drawing class (intro level). The one below is a sequential art project in which we had to illustrate a story the class invented as a group. I had a lot of fun with it and chose to depict the family we wrote about as a raccoon family! I may post a collection of close-ups on each frame because it's a little difficult to see from this picture.

This ink drawing is a mix between architectural study and integration of the details and subject of a photograph from the late 1800s or very early 20th century. The little girl was so much fun to draw that I felt she deserved a close-up.
