No sleep for 24 hours and counting  (School work) by JemiDove No sleep for 24 hours and counting  (School work) by JemiDove
To understand what this assignment is about, see the original blank handout in this link and compare it to what I've done:
lms.tp.edu.sg/courses/1/1415AP…

The title is what I said to my classmates on submission day. :faint: First time in my life being so burnt out x_x My fingers and hand felt like a printer throughout.  I incorporated two main themes in this work: My favourite animals (birds and fish), and Rounded VS Angular (or Organic shapes VS Geometric shapes). Anyway here's a breakdown of what I did in that 24 hours of time:

Wednesday (July 2) - Thursday (July 3)
7am-6pm: breakfast, travel to school, lessons, lunch, more lessons
6pm-8pm: travel home, dinner
8pm-1am (5 hours): sketch in pencil on A4 version of handout
1am-3am: enlarged and photocopy to A3 size (but printed on 6 sheets of A4 paper because my printer isn't that big), trace and transfer outlines to A3 version of handout using black markers
3am-6am: added black water (much ink was sacrificed), rushed shading (hatching/crosshatching)
6am-7am: packed stuff, breakfast, prepare for another day of school
7am+ : SCHOOL AND MORE ASSIGNMENTS

:iconcannotevenplz:

My efforts paid off though :'D My lecturer said I showed good understanding of design principles taught, and she even held up my work for the whole class to see :squee: My classmates also went "waaaah whoa wow" and "you siao ah" (meaning "you are crazy") when they saw it :rofl: I maintained my composure at that time, but I was screaming in joy internally XD

Huh, how the heck did I miss this? dA notification fail.

This is excellent! I can see the themes you were aiming for in this piece. A lot of contrasting curves and edges, bends and straight lines.

Your crosshatching style seems to have matured from previously - it really feels like the shaded parts are in all the right places.

A lot of great detail too, especially in the birds' feathers, the ink effects, not to mention the shapes in the background.

Even the consistency is impressive to me, I think - I noticed that there is one angular fish and two rounded fish, as well as one angular bird and two rounded birds.

After the stunning amount of effort you've put in, you deserve the praise you got in class for this for sure. :) Keep up the greatness!

dA has been acting strange recently with regards to notifications :ohnoes:

Thank you soooo much for the comment, Exploder! :squee: I'm glad you could see the themes I was aiming for, and the fact that you even noticed the balance between the angular and rounded birds and fish :) I'll try my best!

Whoa, that's crazy!! I don't think I ever stayed up 24 hours in my entire life! Kudos to you for your dedication; I'm glad it payed off!! :hooray:
And this is all traditional, I just realized! :omfg:

The composition of this is very nice! The water really helps guide your eye, as well as how the middle two fish are posed. I really like that eagle in the headdress! Oh, man, that water looked like it took a lot of ink! It payed off though; it looks pretty! I also like the theme of the black and white squares, how it breaks off of the water, and how the fish's scaling matches it. :clap:

No that's not a question meant for you to answer. I will burn it anyway. > n >

Take it as a compliment that I want to burn your portfolio. xD

Jokes aside, you should continue uploading your works here man, I'd love to see how your works are.
I don't see you often enough in school let alone you having your works with you when I do. o A o
Keep up the good work! //disappears from DA for an inconsiderable amount of time//

You are spending 24 hours on a drawing assignment.
Meanwhile for me,
It's 24 hours on projects, assignments aka tutorials.
(SCREW YOU BUSINESSACCOUNT/ MACROECONS/ ORGANISATIONALBEHAVIOR)
GOD I HATE THIS PERIOD OF SCHOOL.
[With the addition of some shitty project mates who doesn't do their part and I have to do for them; gonna mark them down for peer evaluation]

It's 5am now and I haven't slept since 2 days ago >_>

Since this assignment's completion (3 July), I've had many more days of sleepiness nights too. More assignments like these, more projects, preparation for presentations e.t.c. My longest is the past three days - only had 1 hour of sleep before going to school today >_<

School is wearing us thin :faint: Sometimes I don't even have the energy to open my eyes to watch for the shuttle bus approaching. :shakefist:

But it seems so fun to have drawing as an assignment -3-
I'm like 
-oh shit macro project fri due-
-OMG CSA DUE NEXT FRI-
-OMFG MY OB HAVE NOT WRITTEN A ROLEPLAY SCRIPT YET-

Shitty teammates who do all the work w/o telling me what I can do to contribute (Because one of them holds on to the final excel sheet), I wonder if they DARE put my peer evaluation low when they don't let me do something productive -_-
Shitty teammates who last minute decide to change our MAJOR PROJECT TOPIC when it's already halfway through and decide to re-do the survey by him and his goodfriend as they were the ones who wanted to change. 

I SWEAR I'M WORRIED ABOUT MY PEER EVALUATION BECAUSE OF THESE 2 GUYS. I EDITED MY EXCEL AND FOUND OUT THEY EDITED AFTER SENDING TO ME. WHAT THE HELLLLLLLLLL. THIS MAKES IT SEEM LIKE I DIDN'T CONTRIBUTE TO 1. my excel 2. survey ( SINCE THEY CHANGED THE WHOLE THING)



Oh ya, what cds did u take ._.

I took: Jap, freehand drawing, color, music, psychology

Though I really wish I were better at drawing characters and wish I was studying animation too- ah, there I go again with my "I wish I were studying animation instead of listening to my parents to study graphic design" mullings >_<;;

You are good at drawing characters! What do mean LOL, wish I could draw the Sonic characters like you, I still can't draw their appearance well.

Haha I understand! You seem very suited for it but what's done is done, this might be the better path for you perhaps? You'll find what you're more passionate about down the years. ;)

Working a full clock round is no joke, I tried to create an A3-sized poster mock-up design for a new coffee recipe and the first thing after uploading my finished work is to hit the bed (I couldn't barely stand-up). Anyways, that's one heck of a really awesome use of contrasting shapes. :)

At least you still managed to hit the bed. I still had to be awake to rush to school even after I completed this! :ohnoes:

Thanks for the comment by the way :) I may not reply to all of them, but I do read and appreciate them :D

I agree with your classmates. You ma'am are completely insane. Fave just for the sheer amount of work it took to do this and the fact that you somehow survived 24+ hours without sleep.
