When I was 13-16 years old at my school we began to prepare for the IGCSE. It was the first year the school ever presented these examinations with the year above us- Well... Obviously the results were not really good. Oh... what the hell... They were ****.
So, the school had to take the necessary means for us not fail as bad as they did and improve the school mean at Cambridge, Edexcel and AQA examination board; Which it mean we had to work(7x more + teacher's pressure)/√regret. Yeah.. I did get one relaxing summer with exam pressure and study...
That effort better pay off... (ง ͠° ͟ل͜ ͡°)ง.
Anyway... moving on. One of the subjects I chose for my IGCSE was art (surely you didn't saw it coming, did ya? (☞ﾟ∀ﾟ)☞).
Art exam was fun, to be honest. The exam was about you pick one topic, such as disguise, clothing, landscapes and more. When the exam start, we need to have chosen our topic to start working on.
The topic I've picked for my exam was OUTLINES it was all about shapes and forms.
So we first worked on figures. Though even before choosing a topic I used to spend my free time drawing cartoons. From there, it all came to me, a bomb of ideas and among many of them: A comic book.
I started sketching the characters, writing the story and learning about comic book design and Photoshop. I had to make a comic in less than 2 months AND if that wasn't enough I had other 8 exams (good lord I've worked hard since the start of the year). (╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻
When I finished the comic book and I felt... happy. I accomplished the hardest thing I've ever had to face and then... I said to my self "Lets take this further, lets make something real out of this. lets make: "OUTLINES".
Photoshop, paper, pencil, colour pencils, and most importantly... love. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
