OH NOOooo!! Tumblr is exploding with Hobbit stuff!! Now I have to wait 5 months! And more for the extended releases!
Yes they have! For those who don’t know, Everett Peck was the creator of Duckman in the 90’s. He teaches character design. The department also hired James Martin who currently works at DreamWorks and teaches Visual Development here and he’s a great teacher who gives a lot of constructive criticism that helps you. Robin Richesson ,our head illustration faculty, was one of the artist responsible for the Murals of Pawnee (from Parks and Recreation). So the Illustration/Animation program is definitely growing and is filled with faculties who have worked in the industry.
Thanks Naff for reminding me :)
The animation program in Csulb focuses mainly traditional 2D animation, but they also have 3d and experimental as well. The animation department is a growing one and they offer opportunities to immerse yourself in the animation industry like DreamCrits and SummerArts programs and such.
However, If you you really love art and want to have a career in it, always aim higher. Art schools like CalArts, Art Center, and many art schools out of state are a good choice. Don’t settle on a school just because someone forces you to. Choose a school you really want to go to and research it (visit the school, talk to councilors, call them, get brochures). I hope that helps.
There are a few on archiveofourown. Bilbo son of Durin by Ulura actually inspired me to draw baby Bilbo and Thorin. Another fic I got as a gift is Far From Home which was inspired by my baby Bilbo fanart.
I wouldn’t mind if you write a fic of Baby Bilbo and Thorin. Be my guest! I would love to read it when you’re done.
I’m not ready
I’m not gonna be ready when tumblr starts exploding hobbit botfa stuff. I hate comic-con so much, I wanna be theeerree.
