Monday, March 17, 2014 - For this project, we were supposed to draw a fruit/vegetable family using one particular fruit/vegetable. I chose lettuce-heads.

This drawing marks the first time I have ever sketched using a tablet in Photoshop. This could be the beginning of a wonderful relationship.

February 24, 2014 - My assignment was to make a 15-25 panel storyboard using this basic idea - “Somebody is leaving a house when they realize they have left something behind inside. They return to the house to retrieve the item. What they retrieve should hint at where they are going, and allow them to continue with their journey.”

Before the semester ends, I may go back and change some of these panels.

January 21, 2014 - Day 36 of Winter Break - I spent 4 hours on my 4” x 5” copy of Anders Zorn’s “Self-Portrait in Red”. That is the longest I have worked on an art project in a single day this break. I need to keep up that level of focus as much as I can when the Spring semester begins this week. Unfortunately, my desktop computer began freezing, so I spend several hours backing up the files in-case the computer died. After backing up all the files (and meticulously exterminating the frequent error messages), I deleted the files in my desktop computer that had already been copied and backed up. It no longer freezes. As a result of the time I spent backing up my computer files, I had less time to work on art. On the bright side, I learned how to exterminate error message 0x8007045D. As a result of time and my time management, this is my final art entry of Winter break. I would like to spend time working on my painting’s face, but we shall see if my classes this semester allow me time enough to do so. Good bye, Winter break of December 2013-to-January 2014. I feel as though I have made much progress in developing my art skills amidst your chilly presence, and I hope to be even more productive throughout summer! Sincerely, Charlie Ly

January 14, 2014 - Day 29 of Winter Break (left) - I painted for another 1 hour, 30 minutes. My 4” x 5” copy of Anders Zorn’s “Self-Portrait in Red” has come to the point where I need to use a smaller brush to get the smaller details.

January 15, 2014 - Day 30 of Winter Break (right) - I continued working on my 4” x 5” copy of Anders Zorn’s “Self-Portrait in Red”. I painted for 3 hours, 45 minutes using a smaller brush.

That is the longest I have worked on an art project in a single day this break. I need to keep up that level of focus as much as I can.

January 11, 2014 - Day 26 of Winter Break - Although I planned on finishing my “Self-Portrait in Red” copy first, I decided to add some animation to my 30-second ANI-28 animation before doing that.

I ended up getting a bit carried away and animating for 3 hours. After staring so long at my flickering light box, my eyes were a bit too sore to work on my painting project. (The light box lights up so I can stack drawings on top of one-another for animating)

Between this entry and the previous one (Day 21), I finished going through some art books I bought during the previous semester.

It took me 45 minutes to draw each frame, such as the one pictured on the bottom-left. That is way too long. I did not erase very much - most of the time I used came from thinking before I drew each line.

Nonetheless, I know I will draw faster with practice!

January 12, 2014 - of Winter Break - My decision for this day was to animate some more of my 30-second animation - just one more day so I could see how much faster I could draw after a day’s worth of practice.

I animated for 2 hours and 45 minutes, and took about 33 minutes drawing each frame, such as the one on the bottom-right. I drew faster than yesterday, but I still need to spend less time thinking when I draw.

I might replace the flickering lights in my light box so my eyes do not become sore whenever I animate with it.
