So yesterday was a day off of school because it was a reserve snow day that we didn’t use and I decided to go to the University that I’ll be attending and get started working on animations.
My teacher, Matt, started me on some quick projects. I did a few ball exercises and then I got to working on a transformation project. That’s where I change one character into another character. It doesn’t matter how I get there, I just have to get there. I’m not done with it and Matt suggested how to make it better. I can’t wait to share it though.
I got to thinking about doing animation for a while, maybe even for the rest of my life. I feel like I’d be okay with that.
I haven’t done much computer animating but I’m sure I’ll get to that when I finish my transformation project. I wanted to do some traditional stuff before I did much on the comp. I think it will help me overall to start on paper.
The reason I’ve been thinking this lately is because I appreciate the work that goes into animation so much more than ever before. I just know that I want to be apart of this process and I want to be like the people that make the things that I love the most.
And after doing animation all freakin day, (seriously, I was there from 8 am to 4 in the afternoon and drawing the majority of the time) I really wanted to work on comics really bad. I got almost completely done pencilling and I inked a few panels here and there.
I’ve just been thinking about this stuff more often because my life is really starting now and I couldn’t be happier. I’m very excited and nervous, but I know that everything will be okay in the end.
