So, I was recently reminded that I have a blog so I thought I would do some updates! woo.
Well, I'm currently in class 4 at AM (holy moley time does fly!), I can't believe it's been over a year since I discovered Animation Mentor. My current mentor is Dana Boadway, who is super talented, knowledgeable and nice (as frankly all the mentors at AM seem to be). We're currently working on two-person dialogues and I'm having a lot of fun but I totally underestimated how much work it would be. And to be honest I was expecting quite a bit of work. I have a trip planned mid-June for my sister's birthday, and it happens to be the last week to work on this assignment, so I'm kind of worried about that. I'll just have to make sure I stay really on-schedule.
Um, I guess that's all I have to say. I am watching Alton Brown's "Good Eats" at the moment, so that's pretty awesome. I had a Maya crash at 6am Sunday (due day) which was super not awesome. It crashed when I hit save, how annoying is that? So, yeah, lost about an hour of work. By far not the worst crash I've had, but man alive was a tired when that happened. I sort of felt like crying, I was so ready to go to bed!
We're moving into splining now, which I am NOT a fan of, guh. I swear my animation was AWESOME in blocking! Why don't you believe me?
We have roaches in our apartment (by "our" I mean me and my roommates, not me, myself and I, haha). So, yeah, that's pretty disgusting. I just want the roaches to dies of starvation! Die, horrible horrible insects, die! I also think we may have termites, which is extra bleck to the nth degreee. Is my lease up yet? Did I mention I live right by the train track? Is it too late to re-negotiate my rent?
But, uh, yeah. I guess that's it for now. Thanks for listening to me ramble!
