The Easy Life :S

Well, I must say it is a strange kind of feeling having my studies over. I've been studying full-time now for 5 years gaining qualifications in music and animation. Now I'm kinda having a little holiday relaxin in this summer weather (it is summer here in Australia haha). One of the new things that I have introduced into my life at the moment is the wonderful creature known as the ferret! I absolutely love them and bought myself 3 of them last week :) They are such inspiring little animals. A lot of fun and a lot of WORK! I thought I'd post a couple pictures of my little fuzzies for you to see :)

This is oscar and the one I'm holidng is a sweet little female that I have not named yet :)

Final Year Animation

Well, production has started on my final year animation and things are going slowly but surely. It looks like I'm going to get a little help with some colouring to help meet the deadline. I'll be posting some "behind the scenes" stuff towards the end of my project. The deadline is in mid October so I better get a move on hahah.

Feeling Nostalgic

Ahh feeling a little nostalgic today and I haven't posted this up on my blog yet so here it is. This is an animation I did last year for 2D class, it was a fun experiment. This year I'll be working on a major project which will be my last project to graduate. I'm thinking of doing another animation similar to this style perhaps. We are at the project proposal stage of the animation, so I wont be starting production until next semester. Lots of work ahead :S

I want one!

Found this video on youtube a few weeks ago. Thought I might as well post it up here for any passer by to have a look at. Its amazing what you can do with these things, after watching this, I now want one more then ever! At the moment I'm using a wacom tablet and that's doing the job for now. Looks like I'm going to have to save up lol.
