New Semester

 This semester, I'm taking an intermediate visual development class taught by JP Balmet. Class is super tough and fun, and every minute contains great information. I find it pretty hard to fall asleep in the class even during crits (but we'll see how that goes as the semester rolls on).

We are currently assigned to produce a character design and a final environment painting of one of three Japanese demons: jorogumo (spider woman), raiju (thunder beast), and funayurei (sea ghosts). I chose the raiju. So far, the process for designing this beast made out of lightning has been difficult and caught myself in road blocks many times. That's how it goes, right? After yesterday's class, I can finally see a direction that I can head to, but who knows? There might be detours along the way!
