October 11SecondClub Submission 2012

A man talks... to himself?

I learned a lot this time around. Animation and modeling and just the basics of maya! It was a great experience even though I ran out of time at the end. It was really fun though and I hope to do another entry soon.

4 Day Weekend and 11 Second Club Update 10/27/12

Hey Everyone!

This four day weekend has been great. Got a lot of work done, been getting ready for the winter sports season, ALMOST done with the 11secondclub, raked a bunch of leaves, and made a video for my dad's birthday.

Did tons and still relaxed. It's been great, makes me miss summer!

Tomorrow will bring some sketches and another 11 second club update hopefully!

Here's the latest update made today!

Tomorrow morning I'm doing a Mud Run so I'm off to bed.

A Four Day Weekend is Coming... Update 10/21/12


I'm going to spare my sob story, I'm busy. This weekend flew by me quicker than Hammy from Over the Hedge with an energy drink. 

Yet, the good news is that I have a 4 and 1/2 day weekend coming up, YAYYYYYYY

Expect to see some tweaked 11 second club animation(s), a jack-o-lantern I'm working on, and some flash tests.

Here's a test I did in flash over a week ago that only now I am posting 

have a great day

Swamped With School 10/15/12

Hey guys

Just an update...

I'm swamped with school right now but I'm still working on the 11 Second Club. I added lights, re worked the timing, added clothes to the rigs, new background.

All that's left on it is to tweak the lip sync and add some background paintings.

I also picked up a copy of HOW TO CHEAT IN MAYA 2012 for my birthday. I flipped through it and read some of the chapters, looks awesome and there's some great resources on the how to cheat in maya site. Just need some solid time to start and go through it.

The time between homework/studying for tests is getting physically prepared for some basketball but I still sneak in some 2D animation and 11 second club work, I recently did a leaf animation and a ball bounce that turned into character animation. Expect to see these this weekend. I don't have the willpower to render/finalize these animations at 11:30pm at night knowing I have Geometry in 9 hours so they'll have to wait 'till the weekend.

Just thought I'd have an update

I can't think of a good way to end this blog post so this is it. Check back, follow my blog, check me out on Twitter, blah, blah. Happy Monday
