To new beginnings......

Wow! It's been a long time!! lol Well, we're in Utah now! Craziness!! I would've posted something earlier but have been tryin to find a job. Was hoping to have an animation job but as I learned, not everything works out and I should just be happy other things have. My family is happier than ever, and for that I am sooo thankful. I did a test last week but I ended up just giving up. Why? It involved rigging which I ended up failing miserably (the painting weights part). I did learn a lot though. To prove it, I finished rigging my model and moving on to the really hard part (1 of many)....painting weights! lol I'm pretty crazy!! lol ;O) Hopefully I will get to animate him soon!! ;O) ANyways, thanks for looking and I hope to post my progress soon! Till then.........PEACE!!! ;O)

Tryin to find balance.....

For my B-day I got an electronic drum kit. It's perfect for getting my frustrations out and getting my mind off of things. Believe me there are a lot of things on my mind. lol I'm not the greatest drummer but just like animating....the more I do it the better I will get. I have also been tryin to teach Malcolm what I know about drums. I will post a vid of his progress soon. Wish I could get him into animating but I tried and he didn't seem to take to it like the drums. Anyways, here's a vid I recorded earlier.....I found a accapello version of "Umbrella" and here's me attempting to play along. Thanks for looking and will try to have some animations up soon! Till next time.....PEACE!!! ;O)

Picking myself back up......

The last rejection letter really did a number on my confidence. Rejection letters are nice cause at least I know someone is looking at my work. Been gettin a lot of good reviews.....just no jobs. :O( But after 3 years and a ton of rejection letters, I find myself thinking that maybe I'm crazy and need to stop. The other day I opened maya ( the 1st time in weeks!) just to see how I feel about it. I found myself animating again. The feeling of having no hope disappeared and I found myself with a renewed passion. I can and will make it.....I just need to keep moving forward. ;O) Anyways, no more rambling on, here's my next shot....thanks for looking and will try to post my progress. Till next time....PEACE!!! ;O)

Been awhile.....

Man! It's been a long time since I have posted something! lol I'd love to say that I'm still animating but that would be a lie. I am back at my old job and working a lot......not much time for that. Hopefully I can find some balance and get back to it. Anyways, here's the last project I have worked on. My buddy Ray Kasel and me did all the animating. Rendering and lighting, etc were done by other people. I'm not happy with my work but am glad to have had the experience. I guess with each project I do, I get better....hoping to get more work soon. Anyways, thanks for looking! Till next time....PEACE!! ;O)
