I am still alive


It has been a very long time since I have had anything to update. Like most of my fellow classmates, I have been in the I-just-graduated-and-need-money-so-let's-put-animation-aside-for-a-while groove. I recently got the opportunity to do some animations for a music video which I am currently finishing up. The content is pretty simply, and as much as I've complained while doing it, it has brought back my drive to animate. My goal for this year (Sept '09' - Sept '10') is to create something, ANYTHING, on my own. I am going to be painting, animating, drawing. I need to get my creative juices flowing again!

My problem, as it always has been, is finding the right thing to animate. I once again find myself not knowing what to focus on. The ideas I come up with never have enough depth, or the characters are clones of already existing things.

At this point, my goal is just to finish this music video and then get a move on. Here is a little sample of one of my characters out of context. Don't want to spoil anything by showing the whole scene!
