welcome to my little thread of scribbles, works and nonsense I'll put all my stuff I'll make in this summer break in here and hope to also keep doing that later on. Little bg-info to understand my stuff a bit better: I'm 20, I live in the Netherlands and I just finished my first year in artschool (Willem de Kooning Academie, Rotterdam), doing illustration.
I made quite a lot of stuff this year, I'll put more of that online in a while, when my boyfriend and I are done with redoing my website (www.jerneydewilde.nl, currently under construction). I've learned a lot this year and I enjoyed it a lot, but..(tadadadumm) I haven't made much work for my self. That is what I want to focus on this summer and I hope you can help me with that .
One of the main things that I want to work on are my sketches, because they are un-clear to other people. I kind of make notes, in stead of sketches, which I quite like (as reminders), but aren't very usable to show to third parties, like teachers hehe. A lot of my classmates rock at it and blow everyone away, which annoyes me I want to make better sketches that better represent my skills than they do now. (I developed this way of sketching only this year btw, I used to sketch very differently before, so I think I can get rid of the habit quite easily, if I work on it.)
Secondly I want to work on my technique (digital and traditional, but mainly digital) in making a 'finished product'. My work is always ok, but almost never gets 'wow's. The stuff I make doesn't really appeal to a lot of people, I guess. I want to work at putting in certain elements that makes a piece just 'click' better and communicates with it's viewer, in stead of just being ok.
NOW, I apologize for the long and boring additional info, but now you guys know what I would like to improve the most. Thanks for reading if you did!
