I had my review yesterday. It went pretty well. Ruth liked my degree project and gave me some good ideas to improve on it. She also said that she likes that I can do animations that appeal to children without dumbing down my animation.

Looking at my other work, she told me that I should just put my dp and montage on my dvd. She also suggested I try to create another short flash animation to put on there. Hopefully I can finish my Children's Lit animation in time to put it on the DVD. That is duenext Wednesday so it should be done by then.

Time to get back to coloring....

Stresssssssss and colors

I am now stressed for the first time all semester. Everything is quickly coming to an end and I am running out of time way too quickly.

I finally ordered my business cards today. They should be in in 1-2 weeks.

I am trying to get all my stuff ready to enter into Squealing Pegs. I am entering 5 pieces and hoping that at least 1 will make it in somewhere. My To-Do list is steadily growing...and I just don't know what to do with it.

On top of all my portfolio and degree project stuff, I have to do a short animation or my children's literature class. I need to make either a book or animation for children. I am going to do an animation for young children teaching them colors. Very simple...very quick...hopefully.

So here is my first poster idea for the Squealing Pegs show.

Any suggestions?

I am thinking about doing this color for my DP...The black line on blue looks a lot better than the black on white that I had.

We'll see what happens.

Finish line in sight

So I am homing in on the final stretch of my college career. I am just about done with the animation part of my degree project. Then all I have to do is re-record my voice-over, do a sound effect track and maybe add some sort of music to the parts that need it. I need to do some touch-ups and re-dos of some of my animation too. For the most part I am happy with how it is coming out. I am about 5000% happier with it than I was at the beginning of the semester. Right now my main problem is coming up with a title...Now after almost 36 hours of being awake...I need to sleep...
