A decision i made today...

So i decided I am not going to draw the battle between heaven and hell for a very good reason...
a) I don't think it could be represented in a drawing well.
b) It would be more interesting to use more abstract imagery.
Short random post there.

Really? Why so much drawing

It's like a bomb site in my room right now. People having being viewing my house and seen my room and been like "Okayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy"
Not that I blame them, at last count I had done about 60 drawings in rough.
 And now I've ran out of sketch book space. So I'm cleaning up the images I've already done. So... I had a Mephastophilis day today... I've done 26 clean images so far (adding a few more as I go...) It's been quite fun actually (In a driving me mad kind of way).
Buhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh right having a break now

Soooo let's get back to speed

seen as this blog no longer counts as my assessment I can be liberal YAYYYY
So... what I was up to whilst at ITV faustus wise

 Finalising stuff really, it's been pretty  fun (and really surprizing if I'm honest people really didn't pick the things I thought they would....that's why testing is good folks! I've got different angled shots of my scenerios which is good.
So now I'm back and seen as this counts as 6000 words, 80% of a module and is by far the most useful thing I'll be doing this semester in the long run (i,e portfolio prizes etc) I need to do a lot of work.
I RECRUITED VOICE ACTORS WHO ARE AWESOME. A friend of mine and his lawyer/ acting friend... Oh yes... I can't wait for that.
Had the script checked by 2 people now, both have been happy. This is a relief, some bits have been changed but nothing too major.
Yes I have to do at least 85 drawings.
This is my room right now:
times this by 5 and that is my final piece 0_o I've done 20 in three days I'm only giving myself a week and a bit for this because I have to CG and stuff.
(why so much drawing =_=)

Wow so busy

Hi, I'm sorry it's been so long, thingas got horrendous when I was handing in a million and one things and being on work experience.
But! It's all going well
Going back to Leeds on Sunday and terms begins on Monday woo!
I am quite excited to get stuck in and get back to Faustus.
Speaking of which. I found a poetic rewrite of Faust, which wasn't too dsimilar to that musical script that I read. I only got through the first few pages, but it seems okay. I don't like that fact that Faust is depicted as a sympathetic character, so I'm glad that I'm redoing the original play version of Faustus (it's much older anyway).
I'm also thinking of entering it into this
Hey why not it's probably the most creative self commission I'll do and there is no harm in applying....
I have a massive backlog of work to post, but I'm afraid it will have to wait for another time.

I can do work whilst I'm on my placement :D... Yes I can! So here is an environment. I have actually had a model built by my lovely friend Claire of this room in Google Sketch up, so I have taken pictures of a the room from every angle that will be needed from the storyboard there it won't be rubbish and will be able to draw it with things in the right place.
 And FINALLY some actually rendered character designs....*pant pant*

Results from User testing have concluded that these are the logos I'll be using for the project

I'll try and do more soon... but I am back on work placement now so updates may be sparodic
