Week 10 Slept In

And as far as I'm concerned, Week 10 earned that extra sleep. I just dealt with the week of midterms and am looking forward to Spring break. Besides that I tried this drawing three times on paper before giving up and going with SAI. The last one was traditional media anyway so I might as well.

Also because of midterms, Week 10 is going to be sweet and simple. I'm going with a relaxing, comforting Father-And-Child image.
As for my painting, the professor suggested that the ax on the table was a little too obvious, and that instead having blood on the figure's hands would engage the viewer more. Also it saves me the trouble of trying to accurately represent a shiny metal surface so I'm fine with it.

Lastly for this entry, my latest printmaking assignment. Make no mistake that this class is still the ultimate low of my semester and the bane of my existence, but I'm doing what I can to stay a few steps ahead with it. I work outside of class a lot because when the instructor is around she's over-bearing and frustrating.

This is a copper-plate intalgio with lace used to make the background pattern.

  1. I second the bloody hands versus the axe. I loooove bloody hands XD and I'm glad you're almost done with this printmaking class.
