Moving along

Let's get working!

Which I actually won't this week because I'm going to Boston oops. In the meantime, here's one of the backgrounds for my film, which might actually wind up getting cut. Let's see where that leads!

Fun with roses

If freeware horror RPGs are your thing, you should play Ib! It's fun, short, and above all else, free.

And the semester slowly crawls to a close and animation begins...!

Ooky Spooky

In between doing my senior film stuff, I've been entertaining the idea of making a horror game starring some characters I've been toying with for a while. To some people this may be surprising, but to others, completely expected.

It'd be an interesting challenge, to say the least! But I obviously have no intentions on putting serious work into it until after my school work is done. So there will only be silly sketches and half thoughts for now.

I'd like to hope by next week I will be 100% done with my animatic. Time will only tell if that is the case, but that's what I aim for!

How exciting...!

We have figure drawing in one of my classes this semester! I actually really like figure drawing, even if I may not be the best at it.

Flash, we meet again.

Time to start really putting my all into my senior film! I'm going to work with tweaking the colors a bit, this is mostly just a test-shot. But I have over half the film boarded and I should have it in animatic form by this time next week.

One of my favorite assignments from school was still the different turnarounds we had to do for History of Animation. I just think they're a lot of fun!

Might as well put my junior piece on here!

Oh dear.

I've finally changed a bit about this thing so that I wouldn't completely keel over if mystery people found it. However, due to the uncommon nature of my last name, this probably means it's super-easy to find for a variety of people, including my parents, if they happen to search for it. So, if that's the case, hi dad!

Gearing up for senior year, let's show this one who's boss! I'm hoping to be more successful with my thesis film than I was with my junior film. I'm also trying new things to challenge myself, like using animal protagonists instead of people. Because... well, this is animation, most things star animals and I'd better get used to that!

Wow I seem to talk a lot about nothing. Oopsie.

Busy with all the wrong things.

This summer has been me working on things, going places, and then coming back to get back to work on other things!

Unfortunately, it's all nerdstuff and artist alley stuff. I don't have a single idea for my senior piece yet, which is very distressing because I'm sure half the kids in my class already have their things storyboarded and their backgrounds done...

Oh well, that's what I intend to use August for! Since my summer job wound up... not... giving me hours at all.

Oh god it happened again.

I'm not kidding, every time I try to use this site they change the layout. Why. What do you have against me blogging?!

But in all seriousness, I've wrapped up my junior year of college already. Even if I still have more to learn, I can't even begin to put into words how much better of an experience it was compared to the end of my sophomore year. Which is a good thing, but I just need to keep moving forward! Now I have the fun task of coming up with a senior piece idea that I won't hate after slaving an entire school year over it, sobbing grossly at 5 AM nightly to get it done.

I'm rather proud of myself for this summer, too.  I assumed it'd be 80% me playing video games, 20%  throwing myself into the sun for not doing anything productive, but it seems like it's been more 50/50.  At least I haven't beaten Kirby's Dreamland 3 yet.  Yet.

In more fun news, however, I'm about to poof off to California to visit one of my closest friends and chill with her for 2 weeks.

Whoa what.

I swear I keep forgetting this website so every time I find it, it changes its layout. Okay. BUT ANYWAY I'm in the last legs of my junior piece! All scenes are inked out, I just need to color like the wind and fix up some stuff. I feel like I learned a bit about animating through this that I can carry over to next year, but all in all I've found maybe I would've been better off as an illustration major...! Other than that I don't have much to show for my efforts. I was waiting-listed for a con AA again despite putting my application in 20 seconds after a friend who got in. She offered me a spot at her table if I don't get one in the end, though, so I'm eternally grateful for that.
