this was the 3nd assignment (water color and pastel). we had to do an illustration with an octopus as the main subject. i really enjoyed this project. it was perfect when it came to trying to work with my style. and i was really shocked. my professor didn't mind me working so simple. the only thing he said about my style was to add sophistication to it by working with more value. i'm always afraid of going too dark in my work, it's something i need to work on. but this is just an octopus, fried noodles, and takoyaki. a lot of people didn't know what takoyaki was. a lot of people thought it was ice cream or cupcakes...a few people knew what it was though. we talked about how this could be for a specific audience, like people who actually eat this would know what it was. maybe not. my style is so simple...but anyway i really enjoyed working on it.
overall, fall quarter was a good quarter. i actually made art i liked and didn't mind showing people. e w e hopefully i will be able to do the same this quarter.
