Beach Babe by zingilicious
Beach Babe
At Ringling we have this Digital Paint and Sketch Club, abbreviated as DIPSY and every week a student or guest talks about their art, and a themed challenge goes on while they talk. This week’s theme was Beach Babe, and this was my entry! (After a failed 40 minute paint, this was the 10 minute result. MUCH better than what I had before, TRUSHT me…)
  • Mood: Anxious
  • Listening to: Fiona Apple's Imagination
  • Drinking: TEA. RAAAGH.
For the past year, I realized I hadn't posted my journals in the right place. So all the journals I thought I had posted were in my stash instead of in the public page. SO I LOOKED LIKE I WAS DEAD HAHAHAHAHAHA............ So instead of posting every journal since then, I would really rather just make a long journal about what's been going on and what will probably go on in the future. 

So last fall I applied to colleges. Art colleges. My dream is to someday be an animator, but really gearing more towards the story end of the animation pipeline. I applied to 2 colleges- Calarts and Ringling. You can see my portfolio for Calarts here-… . I got rejected to Calarts, as was expected, and accepted to Ringling. So I sucked it up and pulled my ass up to Ringling. Currently I am in my third week at Ringling as a computer animation major, annnnnnnddddd things are pretty good. So far. I still really want to go to Calarts, so I've decided I will at least try again, but I don't know for sure if I will get in and even if I do, I don't know if I will go. Mainly because Ringling offers a business of art and design minor and since opening my own studio is a HUGE ASS DREAM OF MINE, I don't know whether I want to take that away for the artistic ventures at Calarts. But that's a thought for another time and day. I don't want to dwell on it now...

As far as life at Ringling goes, it is really great! I've already learned so much. It is definitely a school with PLENTY of resources to go around for everyone. That being said, taking advantage of those resources plays a huuuuge key into getting the most that you can out of this school. I can't say much about the learning here, since I've only had three weeks, but so far it's great. There are plenty of talented kids that come here and just do what the teacher says and it's all great. To be honest, I kinda worry about these kids because it doesn't seem like they really want to learn about animation... they groan when they have to do homework and stress out over the littlest problems in their assignment. Those are the kids I stay away from... but it is realllyyy tempting go join them to go to a rave or a party.....Some others go above and beyond, and some go WAAYY above and do crazy things (taking advantage of ringling's resources TAKING ADVANTAGE TAKING ADVANTAGE!!!) and I can tell they are on a great path. I think. I just get the feeling. I don't know honestly gaaahhhhhhh......

Soooo later this week, maybe even tomorrow, I'm going to post some of the things I've done at Ringling so far. I'm going to play with the traditional animation desks later, so maybe I'll crank out a couple of scenes to post too! Till then, my friends, have happy days. Bye!

I am just an extremely ambitious girl who wants to get better at everything she does.

ANYWAY drawing is a small ( BIG) obsession of mine. I don't know why I start and I don't know why I can't stop. I just do it. That's really why I'm on DA. So...hopefully with enough practice I can become the kind of artist I want to be. ^^
