I think it was back at the beginning of July that I said I was going to get back into drawing. Well, I kind of picked a really bad time to pick it up again back then since a week or so later I went on vacation. I was so busy doing stuff that I didn’t really have much time to draw; I think I tried a couple of times and gave up in frustration. On certain days I’ll can draw really well and on others I just seem to be absolutely terrible; the few times I picked up my sketch pad I experienced the latter.
With only a few weeks left until my university classes begin, I decided that I should probably start drawing more so I don’t suck when I go to my art classes for the first time. I’m in my third year, but this is the first year I’m taking art classes since I swapped my Computer Science major for an Art & Art History major. Not exactly a smart move as I’ve had to jam pack my schedule to fit all the art requirements into two years. I don’t think I’ll mind the extra work load though; Computer Science felt like hell to me and I love drawing and other hands on things (before you say it, yes, I should have gone to college).
I blame the whole situation on my high school. The art program there was severely under funded (similar to the music program) and there was such limited choices in classes that I wasn’t able to find out if I would like Computer Science or not before going into university. Actually, I guess I’m also partly to blame since I could have just watched some Youtube videos and learnt some coding before hand to see if I would like it; oh well, what’s done is done.
Well, what do you guys think? I based this Miku drawing off the new design for Japan’s Miku V3 and the Miku design used for the Xperia’s limited edition smartphone.
