HEY! Yeah I know I JUST made a journal but Im very excited to share something!
I passed my first portfolio class with flying colors!
Just for some context - there are 2 classes that are the BE all END all for my school, Portfolio 1, and Portfolio 2.
I had Portfolio 1 this quarter, basically where I pump out a TON of work to show the teachers Im good enough to move on and graduate..SO. MUCH. STRESS. I literally broke down in tears so many times this past weekend, fearing I had failed myself, and maybe this class. I wasnt able to finish my last model, the Overwatch character in time, only halfway despite all my efforts, so I was terrified.
So, Monday morning, I get called in for my review, I walk into the room (heart pounding with nervousness) and I see one of my teachers. As I set up he tells me that he was looking forward to my review today, that he has been following my work and is very impressed with just how FAST Ive learned 3D and the level I have reached in less than a year. 8') (already feeling much better)
Then the other teacher walks in, he sits down, they both pause a second, then say:
"We both already know youve passed, lets just enjoy our time here and go through your work"
Guys, the relief i felt in that moment was incredible
So .. the review was enjoyable, and not butchering. I got great feedback on things to improve and make better on all my projects... so I can now move on with a clear direction and goal!
I just wanted to share my victory, because I did indeed, feel victorious!
<--- this spontaneous model I did actually saved my butt,.... my teachers pointed it out as one of my strongest works at the moment. So you will definitely be seeing a polished version of her in the future!
(among some of the others)
I havent posted many of my WIP models here, but I always upload progress shots of everything I work on to my instagram- www.instagram.com/whitlanier95…
, a lot of stuff that hasnt made it on here or my artstation yet. But I also post regular 21yr old college girl stuff on there every now and then, so its like 80% my work and projects and 20% just my regular life
thanks again guys! Christmas drawings are on the way!
