My Illustration professor had us completely lay out our own assignments and due dates for this semester. It was a terrible and awesome power.
I'm trying to hit things I'd not otherwise be assed to make myself do, like pure landscapes.
Around five hours each, with an hour for tweaks after class critique.
My current self-induced punishment is designing and painting A Building. I have a sneaking desire to do Brogan and Marie's tailor shop, but I'm thinking that's overly ambitious. Shame on you, Geometry, you ugly thing.
