I see that's it's been well over a year since I've written a journal entry. . . UPDATE TIME!Game Art Design
I switched my major from Media Arts & Animation -> Game Art Design a few quarters ago (somewhere around the end of 2011) and it's going ... okay.
In terms of education, I'm learning TONS of new information--this past quarter, I was learning Maya and ZBrush in tandum, which was considerably tough at times. My only gripe is with how the GAD program is set up at the moment. Being that the program is brand spanking new, not that many classes are being offered. Also, I've switched over from about a year's worth of credits in MAA, so I've come to a sort of hiccup in class flow (I'll be taking my last required Gen Ed class next term, so what else can I fill my credit hours with??)
My advisor is assuring me that everything will iron out as soon as the new quarter rolls around. Even so, this doesn't quell my raging sea of nerves in regards to my graduation date. D;Summer has returned!
And that means that the heat has come back with it. ~____~ It's sooo hotttt. Temperatures tease the 110+'s around these here parts. But that's nothing new. Just sad. </3
But it also means that break time is near! Hibernation time is within sight! XD
Although, I DO need to dedicate some time to family in these few and short weeks. Believe it or not, I couldn't visit my family between the months of January and May AT ALL because of inconvenient work hours. So SUCK IT, work, I'm taking time for myself. >w<Arts and Stuffs
There are new things to be posted. Maybe not soon. I AM going on vacation in a few days, so don't expect anything just yet.
On a related note, the most amazing thing happened to me the other day!! - Excited, heaving breaths! -
I was casually hanging out at school when I started making small talk with a Photography major. He questioned whether I could model certain things in 3D, and I was like, "Hell yeah, ni**ah, that s*** is easy," ... but in a much less vulgar manner. Anyhow! He told me about a local industrial company that is in need of a 3D animation done of one of their products. Of course I told him that I was interested! I should have more information soon, I HOPE, so stay tuned for more on that. =]Conventions 2012
I was able to attend Matsuri back in March this year. I only went for most of one day, but I had a lot of fun. My good friend Hellraze
was there selling his art, and it was so awesome to see him again after a good long while. GO CHECK HIS STUFF OUT, HE IS DA BOMB. <3!!!
I also had the pleasure of watching angryangryasian
do a demo, and also purchased some of his incredibly beautiful artwork.
Sadly, I missed A-Kon 22 last year. BUT! I've recently returned from A-Kon 23. 8D SO MUCH FUN. I went with 14, count 'em!, 14 friends from my school and we all had a blast. Many interesting and... disturbing thing were seen. Aah. Good times, good times..END
And this is the end. I'm falling asleep here at work and my body is checking out. XD
So maybe I'll update this thing sooner than in a year's time. With any hope.
