Ahhhhhh, liberation! nearly the last month i have been slaving away, over my animation desk producing animation for my new reel. I had been asked by one studio to do a few more subtle acting shots-- I did about 30 feet of animation in about 3 and a half weeks and i am FRIED. I don't work well under pressure-- which is ironic consider what type of work i do, but i just don't thrive under it. I know lots who do, and love it. My enegery just goes down then tubes. I thrive in non threatening, relaxed environments where i don't feel the pressure. What do i do when i DO have pressure, i pretend i don't and act as relaxed as i can. I am not complaining, just debriefing i suppose.
I animated 3 different shots with the character from my short- i recomment this for ANYONE doing there own film. You learn a lot about what is working and not working with your design. It has, in fact, driven me to make some changes (like adding more hair to give him a more youthful look), or soldifying others like him having almond eyes.
I hope i haven't lost all of my "viewers" over the last couple weeks-- i intend to post some more stuff and even return to some tutorials! I just need a breather for now and then you'll hear more from me! later all!
