I’ve been doing some little ‘what I wore’ warmup sketches lately as I’ve been trying to dress a bit nicer for confidence reasons and it’s been fun! Ofc I know clothes can’t make you happy but it does give you a nice little boost in the morning.
1: Dorothy Perkins dress, lace headband from Peacocks, white crochet flats from New Look, surprisingly cheap glasses from Specsavers because I Need To See
2: H&M top, Dorothy Perkins 3/4 lengths, same shoes, headband from a slightly questionable vintage stall, daisy earrings from Claire’s Accessories but you can’t really see them so it doesn’t matter. ‘Rosie the Riveter’ attitude: model’s own.
3: That One Top From New Look That Everyone Bought But I Still Love It, crappy threadbare strappy top underneath, New Look skinny jeans, boots from Dune (the shop, not the book or the David Lynch film).

speedpaint of a volcano lady enjoying a nice warm bath 
when I say speedpaint I mean ‘this only took me 2 1/2 hours’ which I’m not sure really counts as any kind of speed :I

sketchy warm-up drawing of a guy who literally shoved puppies in my face when I was walking down the street feeling sad the other day
I am not really a dog person at all but that guy was SO HAPPY about puppies that I must confess it did cheer me up

Anonymous asked: Hi, I'm considering studying one of the Computer Animation Courses at Bournemouth, and was wondering if you have anything you wish you knew before applying about the course or applying to art schools in general? Did many people take an art foundation, or more straight from sixth form? Or any feedback for those sitting AS levels. What A levels did you study too (If you took any)? :D Love your work x


Answer:

I think I wish I’d believed everyone who told me it was going to be very technical. It was made very clear but I sort of thought maybe more drawing would be involved despite what people said. I still would have taken the course but I probably would have been more prepared; I should have spent a bit of the summer learning basic programming and revising maths, or playing around in Maya. In terms of art school applications in general: I wish I’d known how much life drawing they would want in a portfolio. It was a mad scramble to get all that done and I recommend starting to build up the portfolio well ahead of time.

Not many people did Art Foundation, actually (as far as I know it’s just me and one or two others - but I could be wrong)! There’s a few straight from 6th Form, quite a few who did gap years, etc. 

I took Graphic Art, Drama, Textiles and Film Studies at both AS and A-Level because I had a death wish ;___; (it was mega stressful taking extra subjects - I do not recommend). I’d say Art, Drama and Film Studies are incredibly useful for this course, I found my cinematography module very easy because I’d already studied most of those things in Film Studies.

And thankyou! Good luck with your applications :)
