Long Time No See

It's been a while since I posted, but let it be known that a job (full time) makes people unexpectedly lazy when it comes to other parts of their lives. Like cooking, cleaning, and eating (or maybe that's just me.) Usually you would have seen my epic struggle to complete my final MA project - and I promise you it was indeed epic. 100+ hours with no sleep, mild hallucinations, some anxiety, despair and finally acceptance (like I was dying or something). It was a roller coaster, but who cares about that? The day is won, and I am finally free.

Looking back, I'd really have liked the time to do this properly, but things change. I'm proud to say that at the very least, I learned a LOT, and I mean a LOT about animation. And I'm confident with enough time to do animation, I can make something decent. The learning curve has been destroyed, so the hard part is keeping at it in order to get better. Hopefully a few of the things I have lined up (ALL FUHN!) will give me the chance to explore more animation. I really don't like being a jack-of-all-trades guy, but I'm confident enough in my design (add in the fact that I do it 5 days a week for 8+ hours a day) to know I don't need to practice that on my own time.

So, sweeping this entire last semester under the rug, I feel compelled to continue my blog. I apologize to all the readers who actually read (yes, all 3 of you...maybe 2) my blog, but the coming months should prove to be an interesting (or not) return to the ways of old. I'm planning on doing a 3D speed sculpt today or tomorrow, and Dominance War V is just around the corner. I've been looking forward to joining D-War for a long time now (since III actually), and with no other worries and a good chunk of now free time I can actually finish.
