Well, I have now reached over 800 watchers, which is awesome!
I'm trying to build up my own stock and textures collection because I want my artwork to be 100% mine. I have help from people I know as well who do photography as they let me use their photo's and I've been taking quite a few pictures myself with my camera and my parents which are both dslr's and take good high res photo's. I don't have a big enough collection at the moment, but I'm going to America in february 2013 and I've never been so I'm pretty sure I'll come back with some good photo's that I can use!
I've also recently been accepted in to university which I'm so excited about, I've been waiting to get my degree for three years now! College just bores me and I don't learn much, I more or less teach myself everything.. so all I've wanted to do since I started is go to university and now it's happening!
Come September 2013 I shall be moving out and going to get myself that degree, the course in the first year lets you do a bit of everything and then in the second two years you get to choose what you want to specialize in, I haven't decided yet but it will probably be based on what I do now as when I went for my interview, the tutor that interviewed me told me that I should pursue this type of design I do now, even though I said it was just a hobby.
I've also had an email to say I can get a scholarship.. as my reference said I'm expected to come out of college with three distinctions, I can get a scholarship with three b's at a level or equivalent which is what the course I'm doing is. I can get a cash prize and potentially the first year of my course half paid for. Couldn't believe it when I read it! I get certain people criticizing my work and saying certain things so this made me a lot more positive!
Thanks to everyone who supports my work anyway, I really appreciate it. Watch this space.
