What THE...?!

Artist of the Week! 
This week it goes to: DStraX
Your studies just keep getting more and more amazing! I'm actually going to start following in your footsteps as far as the art related stuff goes... I really need to step it up on many things, such as matieral tests, rendering tests, etc. I can't wait to see you reach your full potential, it will be one for the stars. The main thing that I would like to see you work on would be fully utilizing dynamic posing. Once you get that down, I'm not sure what will stop you...
Thanks for the AMAZING advice that you and 'another artist' gave me... More on him next week.

Alright let's see.... this week hasn't been a major breakthrough in the art department, EXCEPT that I started breaking away from just my strange brush that I've been using. I guess that makes me a bit more versatile when it comes to just painting around. Either way, I still just want to have more time to paint hahaha

I've been sleeping a bit more than usual. I'm not sure if that's a good or a bad thing who knows. Oddly enough though, I've been extra sleepy since I've been doing that. Not sure how that works.

Uhhh... Not really a whole lot going on besides that. Thought about switiching to Illustration major, but that would leave me sticking around the school for another semester (not that I wouldn't like that, but I don't think my bank account would appreciate that). So I think I'll just keep doing as I am and just gear all my electives toward illustration or painting or whatever. It might be best that way.

Anyway, as always... here's the art!
