My first finished sculpt! Say hello to my stag beetle friend โ™ฅ

Ten weeks until my chapter at Square Enix closes. As much as I love everyone here, I sooo can't wait to start uni. I really really want to get down and dirty with animation already ๐Ÿ’ฆ

I have nothing against swearing and find myself doing it too, but excessive swearing really alienates me.

Tiny render test I did a few weeks ago

I think when I'm at uni, I might give acting another shot. Maybe even voice acting. I'll have to try to get an agent ๐Ÿ˜

One of the things that saddened me was that I couldn't go for game voice over auditions, because it went against the contract of my employer. Not much longer!

I wish I could understand and speak French without having to learn it

Another self portrait attempt. Getting happier with each one ๐Ÿ˜

Found a great app shortly after I posted this. DJV Imaging is _made_ for use in Film Production, VFX, and animation. And it's open source!

Hey Animators!

Any good recommendations for video players that have 'previous frame' / 'next frame' keys? VLC doesn't do that.

I'm currently using PotPlayer, which is nice, but it's closed-source

I finished my sketchbook!! Time to start a new one! ๐Ÿคฉ

Three months until I'm done with this job, shortly followed by me starting Animation uni. ๐Ÿ˜

The new animated Spider-Man trailer looks SO GOOD, I am so looking forward to this. YES to experimental art style and fun script youtube.com/watch?v=g4Hbz2jLxv

Having a lot of fun with posing. Model and rig belong to AnimDojo, not me ๐Ÿ˜œ

Okay, I'm starting to get to grips with animating in Maya. To the point where it's actually getting comfortable. Except for the crashes, that is ๐Ÿ™ƒ

It's been a while since I was on Vimeo, but animation industry peers told me that that's what they usually prefer over YouTube. And I can see why.
So much good stuff on there, and nothing that gets in the way.

PROGRESS POST

I've been working a lot the past year to improve my art skills, and I can feel the progress. Same sketchbook, one of the first pages vs one of the recent pages! I still have a long way to go, but I'm happy with my journey. Stick with something, practise hard, and you'll get better at it.
