Oh they hated it severely. I rarely show work like this at school though. Living a double life here ^_^
I also am an animation major as well, where my cartoony style has been encouraged, so I go back and forth based on project/teacher/class.
Thanks for the comment!
haha, I'm in Illustration, where digital art is a sin and watercolor is the only medium they encourage. Blah.
Same about the double life thing. No matter how much time I spend with fine art, I'll always love you, digital.
