Julia Morgan and Stonedene -sketch- by LimitlessDepths
Julia Morgan and Stonedene -sketch-
Because holy Jesus, I haven't logged in since forever ago.

This was one of my projects for Graphic Design 2, where we had to make a large poster for a show at school. I picked to make a piece about the architect, so here's some TL;DR history:

Julia Morgan (January 20, 1872 - February 2, 1957) was California's first female architect. She was from San Francisco.   :3

She was the only woman in her class for engineering, and had received a degree for civil engineering (1894, Cal Berkeley).

Because she was a woman, École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts didn't accept her. Even though it opened its doors to women in 1897, she was denied entry again, but that was because she failed some of the questions on the entry exam. She passed it two years later.

She was the first woman to receive a certificate in architecture after submitting a design for a palatial theater.

She was the architect who designed the Stonedene mansion (which is literally across the street from my school. Fun fun.), Hearst Castle, Hearst Castle, several of the YWCA buildings in California, several buildings on the Mills College campus in Oakland, and... a lot of other buildings in the Bay.

"I want to set up commissions, but I don't know how it even works. And not for points, because I need cash.

Whenever the hell it is that I do get this all down, I want to be doing simple line-art. No color because that takes time that I don't have until the end of the semester. Nothing too fancy, but pretty cheap, say.... $5?

So just taking notes here, I won't do any sci-fi with all the strange gadgets and cyber armor stuff, mechs, or full-body armor. Nor backgrounds, because that's the kind of stuff I want to practice on my own with until I get these things right.
No smut either.
No OCs that are very obviously based off of other canon characters' appearances with a few tweaks to tell them apart. On the same note, no fanart.

Can't think of anything else. Need suggestions and assistance now plz."
