okay so i had my thesis (idk more like an exit project) internal defense last aug 11 (monday) and uhh all this one panelist would say is that “i hate anime; i really really hate anime”; “your characters are a waste" (just because it looks anime to him) and that no one would like my stuff (even tho my target audience is you guys and that i value your opinions more) and junk; so the whole panel (there were 3) goes “don’t you have other styles? like even for the eyes" then i was like ‘ok’. // mind you my medium was ‘INTERACTIVE GRAPHIC NOVEL’ so i thought they were looking for detailed stuff;;; apparently they want cartoony-ish styles; or something that was ‘my own’ and im like.. but this is my own what do you want me do to :))) . i think it was because of the way i draw eyes, since i try to have good rendering, proportions and anatomy :0 what do you guys think?
tldr; my defense went like:
so here im practicing my other styles for my project 8D i think it’s also a way to get me exploring other styles? i guess? oh also other students get different panels so i guess they got lucky they didn’t get mine :)))
i also did a oneshot 20-page comic for one of my classes! it grew from this dirkjake au i had a long time ago but idk i feel so embarrassed about it :)))
