    Also ND aren't there any classes you can take that don't have purposely vague as shit titles to them so they can't pull that sort of shit on you? Like, "3D Modeling I" or "Intro to Maya" or "Learn You Some Z-Brush" or "Rigging Some Damn 3d Character Dammit"? I wouldn't trust any class which has a title consisting entirely of buzzwords.

    Are you still complaining about everything ever always or have you gotten past that? It's been a while.

    That right there is a Piggleton, namely because his belly looks pink and shaved close like a pig, but he has more majesty than a standard pig.

    FUUUUUUUUUCK

    They switched my professors around for my Digital Design Aesthetics class, so now I'm not going to do any 3D modeling (the REASON I'm taking this course) and instead it's like fucking 2D design ALL OVER AGAIN.

    FIRST FUCKING PROJECT:

    A BLIND CONTOUR, WITH LIKE 3 CRITIQUE CLASSES...EDITED

    IN

    FUCKING

    PHOTOSHOP

    ARE YOU SHITTING ME

    ARE YOU SHITTING ON MY FACE RIGHT NOW

    YES I THINK SO

    I'd just like to say this made me laugh out loud at work. For delivery, not content.

    Working (for Wikipedia). I work all the time now, unfortunately not drawing much. I do a lot of (bad) graphic design though! I haven't come back here a lot because I hardly draw these days and it fills me with molten-hot shame, seeing the excellent stuff everyone else is doing.

    But! When a cat needs naming, I know the group to turn to.

    Hey! I'm allergic to cats too. Go us!

    I was told by the chair of this dept. that "oh, but you DO do 3D modeling in Digital Design Aesthetics" when I asked her. (This is the prerequisite to the REAL "MODELING, MATERIALS AND LIGHTING" course). This is why I'm taking it - because at the time, the professor I was taking it with was "really good" and actually delved into Maya a bit.

    I'm going to speak with her ASAP though and say "hey...you remember when? ...yeah, it's not 3D modeling, AT ALL. Switch plz". Hopefully I won't have to run through a billion hoops again if this gets approved though.

    The only problem that could happen with my request (because, luckily, my schedule does not interfere with EITHER of the 3D modeling course times) would be that they'd consider it "too much". I already got out of the computer courses to take this, and had like two waivers signed. Drop add week is only FOUR DAYS LONG, so I assume I'm pretty fucked. I can't get all that this signed all over again in time.

    FUCKERS.

    Oooooh gaaaaawwd this is going to suck so hard. 3 critiques?? Really? For a BLIND CONTOUR? And I'll be taking this class with GAME MAJORS, TOTALLY known for their MAD DRAWIN' SKILLZ. This will be such a challenge!!! Excuse me while I shoot myself in the neck. Oh shit! Let's edit it in Photoshop! On the syllabus it says: some of the tools you'll be using most are "selection tools, paintbrushes, paint bucket, cloning stamp tool, blur and dodge
    tools, eraser, crop tool, filters, and various transparencies. Do not be afraid to experiment."

    OH SHIT

    I'M GOING TO EXPERIMENT MY ASS OFF

    IN PHOTOSHOP

    Hi 5!

    I just gave myself an empathy-laden facepalm of reading that class description.

    I'd draw you something to cheer you up, but I'm in the middle of packing shit and my wacom is in a box somewhere. Perhaps I will try to make something in PS using selection tools, the paintbrush, paint bucket, cloning stamp, blur, dodge, eraser, and/or crop tools. Maybe toss in some filters, or transparency effects.

    But more likely not, because it'd probably turn out looking like some shitty art school project and that's enough to ruin anyone's day.

    good luck, ND, in all seriousness. i just had to deal with a semester of people doing similar things and calling it art. things like taking a black and white picture and shifting the black (and grayscale) parts to red. that's it. that was submitted for an assignment.

    have fun!

    Hahahaha...

    Jesus, I feel like I'm going to rape everybody's mind when I give critiques. I hope I don't offend the professor, in all seriousness...when some twit shows us his DODGE/BURN LAWL, and I tell him to try to avoid those tools...WHEN THEY'RE ON THE SYLLABUS.

    In trying to cope with this matter, I'm wondering if I should just say "'kay, sweet" to getting a shit-easy class...because hey! More time to work on portfolio and other classwork, right?

    I am fucking REFUSING to buy the $50 book though. FUCK that shit. I read some of the reviews on Amazon...I'll browse through it in the school bookstore, but fuck no am I buying that - it's all "value? lineweight? COLOR? OH SHIT#RWhfuilehfjqa" *head explode*

    Maybe I'll buy the 1st version (we need the 2nd) on Amazon for $7. I think I'm going to ask the professor "how much will we be actually USING this book?" because it's my favorite thing in the fucking world when a professor gives you a materials list or a book and you NEVER USE ANY OF IT. Thanks professor! Glad you understand that we all have disposable incomes!

    RGAHRGHARGHA

    Okay bedtime before I rage all over the place.

    well what i'm doing presently is working through loomis books, so that's working pretty well

    but this is a really... self-directed? school and i wasn't directing myself at all until this semester

    at least the english part of my double major taught me a lot

    I'll direct you.

    WITH MY FIST.



    Also ND if you can't get out of this class, depending on the prof and how charismatic/schmoozy you are, it is at least sometimes possible just to be like, "Hey I can destroy your face with my several hundred years of photoshop experience, so can I just use this class as an independent study for <INSERT PERSONAL PROJECT HERE>? You just sit over there and don't do anything and I'll make a cool thing (IN THREE DEE OOOOOOHHH) and then you can circus seal clap at the end of the semester like you actually did something." *

    *don't use these exact words

    Asking people what to draw is always a bad idea because if they were willing to put in the thought to come up with a good idea, they'd draw it themselves.

    Better suggestion. Draw a 1920's style boxer fighting a realistic whale (he's just sitting there crushing himself on land) in the Roman Colosseum. Somewhere in there Bill and Ted are having a totally excellent adventure.
