One month into the new semester and here’s my progress! This is from the beginnings of our learning 3DS Max, a huge program with amazing capabilities (and a tendency to crash unexpectedly), in Leah Klein’s Computer Visualization class. I had absolutely no 3D modeling experience prior to this class, so it’s been a great learning experience and I’m very excited to see what we’ll be able to make from this program, especially as we move into more anatomical subjects.
It seems that without Anatomy class looming over our heads and devouring most of our time, we can actually put in more time to make higher quality art. Rather than being last minute and stressful, our progress in our art assignments this semester has been steady and fulfilling. We even have more free time this semester to explore Chicago and spend time with each other.
I just have some finishing touches to go, but look at that! I finally got the favicon working too which took far longer than it should have. Youtube tutorials saved me from all the sources whose suggestions were not working in my code for whatever reason. I have to say—writing out all the code by hand from scratch and building up this entire website has been rewarding, to say the very least. It’s hard to believe how far it’s come since that day when we first typed in our html, head, and body tags. I will most certainly be using this website in the future as my online portfolio. I’m too proud of it not too! It will of course be improved upon in the future to look more professional as well as to include whatever new art I’ll producing to come.
Speaking of which, now on to my other two illustration projects… Just two more days to go till the semester is done!
