Updates and stuff

Journal Entry: Wed May 12, 2010, 7:17 AM


My education is proceeding along smoothly. I'm glad to say that I have gotten past two more classes and I did very well in both of them. There were a lot of assignments, which is of course why my uploads and comments have been really scarce lately. I got them all done and I'm moving forward.

Now I only have one class coming up for the next session... 3D modeling. Time for me to learn how to use 3DS Max. I'm a little excited. I took a class in 3D modeling many years ago when I used to attend the Art Institute of Philadelphia, but I struggled in that class and barely lurched past with a C. I haven't really touched any 3D programs since then (unless you count Google Sketchup). That was 2003, I think. Now I'm more mature and more open-minded, so I think I will do well.

Also, because I have half the course load, that also frees up my mental resources quite a bit, so I can focus on drawing that comic I said I would draw. Amidst all my classwork, I spent a great deal of time debating about which of my ideas deserves my absolute focus...and which one(s) needs to be shelved (perhaps indefinitely).

I tackled the problem from many angles and eventually came to a very logical conclusion. I have ideas that are best suited for writing, ideas best suited for game development, and ideas that deserve to be expressed in the form of a comic. I have made a decision, and I have taken action to cut the distractions and the filler, both out of my deviantART gallery and off of my hard drive at home.

I will be showing off the results of my analysis soon.
