Frijj Milkshake with Cookie Crisp. Genius.

So This week,.... I've finished my three little 2d Animations and Uploaded them here for all of thee, done a few 3D Ball rolling and bouncing animations for our good friend Georg, and failed miserably at life drawing...... I think at the moment that's my only Downfall. I'm so used to drawing from imagination, it makes no sense how to draw a real life person. Sounds stupid, but it's literally tearing me apart not being able to do this, so my weekend will be spent practicing,...... It's doing it quickly that's the killer. There's no time to stop and rub out or anything, I just can't percieve the complexities of a human form as quickly as others I don't think. Ah well,... let's hope practice can make somewhere near perfect.

It was like a freakin' Swan Dive!

My First Animation Video,..... Haha,.... well Traditional Animation anyway. Ironically it looks like my acoustic guitar's sketches! Which is by far quiet cool,... (well atleast i think so) I find all of these really fun and it really is my favourite lesson of the week, I love Tuesdays! So this was my First Tuesdays Work.

This Is My Squash and Stretch Ball Animation. -----> I thought it was good.

Much Reminiscent of My Swan Dive Today........ Amazing, embarrasing.....

Everthing Can Change In A Day.

You see everything in a new light when you learn new things.

Litterally, I've not really come from a pencil to paper kind of artistic place, So there I am in a life drawing class, Steph sat next to me wacking out some beautiful stuff, Jess on the other side the same, and me doodling little black cats on the side to make me feel better. Life over the past 2 days has kicked me in all kinds of ways, but relative to todays life drawing class, it's literally gonna be really hard for me to find confidence in my drawings to be able to achieve what everyone else seems to already have. I can convey what I see in life through art, but for people to be able to assess that would mean them having to think like me,... and that's nye on impossible.

I never did any Art courses or classes in school, my last art class was in year 9 and i was like 15/16 then, i think,...... i never took anything after that, and i've always just doodled Anime art and little bits and bobs here and there, it feels really hard to draw from life when my heads some cluttered with immense things that i just want to get out there. I'm finding it hard to concentrate in that with what's happened personally recently, but the course and it's tutors are amazing, and i think most people understand what i've been going through that i've spoken too,... it's proving not too big a deal to me, but it's wierd that i can't take from life as easily as i could from my own mind. I guess that's something i'll really have to set down and work on.

Much Love

The Finer Things In Life.

Falmouth University. Digital Animation. Possibly the most eye opening course to the mind of the childish EVER!

Monday's Lesson, Learning the History of Animation, Eye opening in the sense that when you look at something, you see what you see, you never break it down into its formal shapes, colours and what those things would mean on their own, everything has a concept in our mind that we make for ourselves or are taught as we grow up. Which essentially drives you to a place in the head that's slightly deeper than the summer time and "Damnit Work again,..... Smile and Pretend you're happy with a menial life."

Digital Animation, Definately where I belong.

Today (Tuesday) The morning with Georg going over Maya, it seems alot more simple than max, yet i've lost alot of my ability even in that due to being out of practice,.... 2D animation. Funtastic man, definately a chance to show something about yourself and your creativity and what you make from a Circle. Really love the fact that I even managed to put a little something into my own animation that reflected the way my mind works, with the use of the Comicy planet and Space Ship. Loved it! Still do.

That's About it. Peace and Love to all ye Animation Interested People who May be reading this for academic reason or just for giggles!
