Procrastination is a fine art and I excell at it. I doubt many people read this anyway XD
So we're over half-way through the year, scary stuff. Bad news because it means we're closer to exams. Good news because it's closer to UP, The Princess and the Frog, Where the Wild Things Are and The Lovely Bones. I think it balances itself out.
What else to say? I really don't know.
Oooh our assignment this term is portraiture, and I am rather liking it. I don't seem to know many people in the age categories we have though, so if your an Aucklander between the ages 4-60 - watch out!
I think it's time for a shower. I'm not as good at ranting as Vai is.
P.S. Sleeping Beauty is an awesome movie. Watch it. Now I say!
I've put this off for far too long..Ok, so here is another long-awaited journal entry. As always, much has happened since I last updated this, purely because it takes me so long to do so.I've put this off for far too long..4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am now studying animation online through the wonderful course at Animation Mentor. I feel so lucky to be a part of that amazing school! Im a couple of weeks out from finishing the Maya workshop I opted to take before starting (because I had no 3D software experience beforehand.) There are 10 people in my class from all over the world and they are fantastic. I have been given tutorials and live chats from animators who are currently working in the animation industry, It is always incredible to hear them talk about their time at Pixar or what it was like to animate Spiderman.
Given that my course is online I now study from home. I keep being told I need to get out more, but with a growing collection of Disney DVDs and a new iMac I really dont see the need.
I promise to tray and find the time to visit you freelancers one day.
As Twitter is currently down...... I thought it may be a good time to update my DA journal.As Twitter is currently down...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm in my last week of class 1 at AM - boy, the term has flown by! I've had such a great time, and really feel like I've learnt a lot over the past 12 weeks.
My class has been wonderful, I am very much looking forward to our hat-off in our final Q&A tomorrow!
Apart from that there really isn't all that much to say, I don't get out much anymore, but that kind of suits me.
I don't think I'll do another pair of shoes for a while, I'm looking into some waterproofing gel stuff that I found online. My sister gave me a pair of white shorts a little while back and I've been meaning to find some sort of wash resistant substance to mix with my paint... We'll see.
And now, I'm off to battle the fail whales.
Until next time,
Oh, and once Twitter finishes it's little tantrum, feel free to follow me! @wenuwish.
Hmmm.UPDATE: After a rather strong reply to my email the shoes in question have been removed from the store.Hmmm.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today I came across something completely unexpected. A very kind deviant gave me a link to the FB page of a girl who also paints shoes. One of the pairs she has is strikingly similar to my Toy Story pair. I was surprised that someone would even bother to copy my shoes exactly, I'm sure there are a million possibilities and original ideas when it comes to painting a pair of shoes, but no, even the color of the planets are the same.
I know I have no right to complain that my 'design' was copied, they are not my original characters and I respect that entirely - which is why I don't sell them. This pair is up for sale on the girl's Etsy store which is what makes me upset. Not only is it illegal but, because the similarity of the shoes, I am worried that someone may mistake them for my own work.
I would like to say here and now that I do not sell shoes with another's characters on them no
