Well. Another year has come, and I have decided this is going to be my last semester at Uni for a while. I don't think this is the right degree program for me, and I can teach myself a lot with the internet, books, and foundations I've acquired to this point. I made a new schedule for the new semester. It doesn't say what I am studying, but, I've got like four things I'm working through.

I went to LA for Massive Black Workshop in December and learned a ton. Especially on portfolio/recruitment day. Thanks to Phil Holland, Kemp Remillard, and  the Riot Games Splash Art director.

This is what I need and what I'm going to do to fix it. 
I need more perspective understanding- "How to Draw" Scott Robertson
I need more anatomy work- "Figure Drawing for all its worth"- Loomis
I need mechanical understanding of costumes/props- Screen shots of well research movies, and books historically accurate to the times.

Also, I'm in week 7 on Noah Bradley's art camp while also being enrolled in Uni courses, Electronic Illustration and Advanced Figure Painting. 

There has come a point in my life where the fear of not doing art is more terrifying than the fear of failing at art. I will strive on with a madman's fervor, and I will succeed because I will do the work required. I understand my shortcomings, and I have the direction to fix them. I cannot feign naivety, or ignorance. Failure to get what I want is in choosing to ignore my shortcomings. I can do this, I will do this, I want to do this.
