Hi, I'm Ro! I'm an A-Level art student aspiring to be a costume designer.
I also enjoy cosplaying and drawing portraits on RedditGetsDrawn.
If I had to sum up this year in one sentence, it'd be as follows: "Oh, damn, I forgot to upload the majority of my work to deviantArt, yet again."
It's a little hard to review my work when I don't have any examples to hand because none of them are on here, so I'm gonna talk vaguely about it all, and then I'm gonna spam you all with uploads of old work for the next few days :P

The first half of 2016 saw Year 12 draw to a close. My goals for university switched from physics to costume design, but it was too late to withdraw my research placement application. The final push for the end-of-year art exhibition was absolute chaos, and the narrative project still isn't finished. Overall though I don't think Year 12 wound up too bad:

> I took my art in a new direction with my second final piece - I used ink on a collage of sheet music, which is totally different to sticking with acrylic like I'd done previously
> I really got to grips with oil paint (and I'm planning to use it for the narrative final piece At Some Point In The Future) with my 'Angel' copy, which I think came out a lot better than my first final piece (the stairs)
> My narrative project was really fun even if it's not finished, as I found a topic I really wanted to explore and had a good time taking pictures for it
> I was part of the #CharlieKeeperRevealed team! We were asked by author Marcus Alexander to create an animation of his characters Charlie and Bane. Character animation was covered by myself and a classmate, while another classmate created the background art.

I spent the summer locked in a lab at the local university, playing instead of actually doing any work (the actual work was cutting up pictures of fruit, and we finished at roughly noon every. single. day.) so I don't think it was a very productive use of my time... :P

Year 13 has got off to an interesting start? The workload has been very, very intense. Very intense. Art's focus has switched from exploration to having a specific interest, but I feel like I didn't get the memo? I've been doing much more abstract work, using palette knives (inspired by Alexandra Dickens) and going all out with inks. My second final piece for this project will be based on Maggi Hambling's works.

Other notable stuff this year:
I'm a single lesbian now
I went to CERN in November!!! It was amazing holy shit it blew my MIND, and Switzerland is super cool
I visited the V&A's Curtain Up exhibition, with loads and loads of costumes from Broadway and the West End, which was amazing! It solidified my decision to apply for costume design instead of physics
I sent my university applications off and am currently receiving interview appointments and constructing an online portfolio :0 ! I'll let you know how it goes!

Happy holidays, everyone! I feel like "upload more to dA" should be a New Year's Resolution of mine....
