Well everyone, it's been a while (once again) since I last updated the journal. I think it's a good time for an update!
As you may know, I finished Project Triangle a few months back. Your support and feedback was greatly appreciated! Once again, if you wish to check it out, the link is as follows:Love Trangles, Official Web Page
I am still open to critique, so please do not hesitate, and send me a message here or from the site.
Also, as promised, the Love Triangles 2010 Calender is underway, so keep a keen watch out!
Quick update on my personal life:
I have returned to the States, and I have started back at my home University. It's so great to be back and in classes that will challenge me artistically, and further my artistic education! My Professors are absolutely wonderful, and they support each and every one of us so much! Plus, my class schedule is absolutely amazing. 3 day weekends! (<- Plenty of time to do art!!)
I purchased a new HP Desktop and it is beautiful! However, I am still waiting for the Adobe CS4 Masters Collection that I ordered to come in the mail. I cannot wait! The possibilities are endless! After that comes, the only thing left for me to purchase will be Autodisk Maya, but I am going to wait a little bit on that.
I also just got a job! I now work as the Alumni Student Study Abroad Coordinator, and I have such big ideas for it! I am in charge of getting more students at my University to study abroad, and to help them with the process. I've already had a few come in! We really need to get our school on the map, since it's only been open for roughly 7 years. Not many people know that we exist, even though it's an amazing school with very small class sizes and amazing professors.
All of that aside- I will hopefully be graduating in the Spring of 2010! One year baby! Lot's of decisions to make though. I need to figure out exactly what it is I want to accomplilsh in my life, so that I can then go out there and DO it!
Anyway... My goals for the year mainly revolve around getting my portfolio and skills ready and up to par so that I can get a good job after graduation. I'm taking a Web Design class to build up a website for myself that I can feel confident in giving to employers. Along with that, I am hopeing to include my big project for my Animation class in my portfolio as well. I've got the beginnings of something that could go on forever, and it feels great! And then... my acting class is meant to help my character Animation skills, as Glen Keane suggested (if you don't know who he is, look him up). Lastly, I'm in an AfterEffects class, and that will help me by 1) learning AfterEffects and 2) adding to my portfolio yet another program and genera of entertainment that I can be employed in.
Well I think that pretty much covers it. I'll try to update as regularly as possible. It shouldn't be too difficult since my homework is all art, so once I've finished a chunk, I'll try to get it up here.
Lastly, I would like to just take a moment and thank everyone on DeviantArt who has viewed, favorited, and commented on my artwork. Feedback is one of the greatest tools that an artist can have, and you all really help me a lot. So- Thank you!
