I hope everyone has a great holiday, no matter what you may celebrate. Make it happy and bright!
Winter break just started, and I am enjoying the small amount of time I have to just relax! So as of right now, I am relaxing with family, friends, and catching up on some knitting!
But in the next few days, I will be working on classwork for the next semester, editing my piece for the Society of Illustrators student competition, plus...starting my thesis.
My thesis project will be creating a cover, a spread, and 2 other interior illustrations of Lewis Carroll's "The Walrus and the Carpenter". I am crazy excited to start, but know that the process will be rough.
Plus, I have a small project that will go hand-in-hand with my thesis and will need to make a few phone calls to get my plan started. No, it's not an evil plan, I promise.
So for the November competition of 11 Second Club, I place 173 out of 284, which is pretty good for 3 months in a 3D animation class if I say so myself. Take a look at my animation here! Look at the other entries here!
Also, I pitched my thesis idea last week, and l can not begin to explain how excited I am to start! Once I have the fine details figured out, I'll make a post about that.
I will never claim to be an animator. Well, at least not anytime soon. It seems like it is an easy thing to do, but in all honesty, its REALLY difficult. Weeks and weeks can be spent on a clip that could be 30 seconds long.
But I am currently taking a 3D animation class, and for some weird reason, it's not that bad. Well, at least until the program acts funny, which is almost always.
The program we're using in class is DEFIANTLY NOT user friendly, but the actual animation is, dare I say....fun?
In class, we had to create a animation for the 11 Second Club, which is a website that has monthly competitions to create an animation based off of an eleven second audio clip.
At the moment, I can not upload the actual animation to my blog, but maybe in the future I can post a link of it from the competition's website. So for now, pictures of the scene will have to do.
The audio clip for the November competition had a faint drill-like sound, so I imagined two characters sitting in a dentist office, very anxious for their appointment.
