I really wish I would improve at photoshop. I feel like I'm not really getting any better, it sucks balls. I'm just going to sit my ass down and spend the entire day on one picture until I'm satisfied that it looks decent.
The only thing I can say I've gotten better at is the actual time it takes to produce a coloured piece.
Thought I'd try making the images look at least somewhat decent (despite my camera sucking balls). So there ya go...
I actually made two plushies today, lmao. I'm suddenly in a very productive mood. It's nice since I've had a huge art block for months now, and although plushies aren't really illustration, they're at least creative.
I'm going to attempt to make a big one if I can get the right fabrics tomorrow.
Anywho, the ginger one is Trix, and the bunny one is Sander. Bioshock fans will no doubt get the connection between the name and the outfit, lol.
And I included a little group shot too. Because I'm sad and have nothing better to do... And plus, Borderlands is annoying me a little right now, heh heh.
Man, dormitory desks are ugly...
Aw man, I had to make myself a GaGa plushie, it just demanded to be done. Needs work, especially on the glasses, but I'm pretty pleased with how she came out! I'm gonna start practicing different ways of making plushies soon, try out some bigger ones, and different patterns etc...
Didn't take too long to make, and I'm quite pleased with it. I need to take into account stitching techniques ready for the next one, and take care to avoid getting hot glue all over my fingers... because it hurts like a bitch.
I followed this tutorial http://lori-la-tortuga.deviantart.com/art/CHIBI-PLUSH-TUTORIAL-101728424
On a different subject, I'm extremely relieved that the first year of university is pretty much over, not only because I now have spare time to just flop about like a potatoe, but it means that hopefully there will be some sort of a step-up in how the course runs. I feel that the first year was a bit of an unorganized mess, and a waste of most of the money spent on it, but fingers crossed that the second year is where it's at.
Finally, I've finished this. Geez, was it annoying... Erm, so, the idea was a promotional pack, and a 'mystery' advertising campaign. Most of my time was spent on the promotional pack, which included a caffeine/sugar box as a sort of aide to students pulling an all-nighter, a note-book, a keyring of one of the characters, character envelopes, and Pickles the plushie XD
It's probably swayed a little from the actual brief, and what the tutor wanted, but my excuse is that I was absent, lol.
