orry for the unimaginative title. :P Everything else sounded too cheesy. I'm open to suggestions for a better title.

The first piece for my new class, Digital Illustration II. It's a vector/Illustrator class, thus, the vector you see above you. The assignment was to choose something that was a 'guilty pleasure' of our and kind of stretch the concept into something creative. I decided to combine a couple of pleasures of mine (though they really aren't guilty ones), creating art, and my wonderful boyfriend Calvin. So, in my piece, I'm making him. :3

In case you aren't familiar with Illustrator technique, the face is made with a tool called Gradient Mesh. It uses grids and points to plot points and then blend colours to make a smooth effect instead of blocks of colour. It's a cool tool, however long it takes to do it. :P

But I'm pretty happy with it. I didn't choose the best reference, and I had to make up for it. But I'm happy with the effect. ^_^

(In hind sight I realize I should have uploaded this to FAC before my self portrait 2006, since this one preceeded it, but nothing I can do about that now. :P Just keep in mind this one was done first.)

Time Elapsed: 17 hours
Size: N/A

Papercut_DragonYou could call it maybe just "Creation" or "Create" or . . . "Mine." :P I dunno. I love the background, though. Sort of parchment-esque.

TsukiNoNekoYea, my brain sort of died when it came to titling this. I sort of stopped caring eventually. XD It's not about the title after all.

TsukiNoNekoYou aren't the first person to say that. I'm beginning to think they might be the same nationality or something.

DarkKrystalThey prolly are. ^_^; Lawl, but I just think that's really funny. What does your bf say to this?

TsukiNoNekoActually, I looked it up, and they aren't. The actor who plays Rufio is Philipino and my guy is Vietnamese. However, they're both South Asian countries, so maybe that's why?

He doesn't have anything to say about it. XD

DarkKrystalI figured one was Phillipino. Lol, still funny though. I thought maybe I was crazy and the only one who thought he looked like Rufio. XD
