So it's me again, about to relate the happenings of my life. Other than the obvious, I'm currently working on a lot of school projects/exams/papers to be passed either by Friday this week or by Thursday next week. As my classmate said earlier, we no longer have the right to take a breather. Once a task is done, another gets thrown at our faces.
Life, right? To make matters worse, the radio station I'm tuned in to is playing "Bluer than Blue" at the moment. I like the station however, so I'm not turning it off until I go to bed. I'm back to being an owl again; I'm the only one awake at our compound right now. Geez.
The only thing that's driving me right now is the fact that in less than two months, I am officially done with being a college junior! A lot of things are going to happen in the next few weeks, and with dad spending the summer with us, my urgency to finish everything at once has tripled.
A list of the things I have to submit/finish by next week:
(in no order)
- Valentine's Day Animation (project)
- Alpha version of my storybook app (Pre-Finals / Programming class)
- Matryoshka dolls (project for Politics class)
- The multitude of exercises 4-7 (Non-linear class)
- Research paper/Reflection (Philosophy class)
- Self-shot video for Match Moving exercise (Non-linear)
So far, the only task I've started is the Valentine's Animation (greeting), and it's not even at least 10% of the whole thing! (T___T) I could basically CRY. Here's a few shots of the pre-rendered frames so far:
Meet Popo! (I just randomly made up a name for her, actually :/) I was playing around Maya earlier, and sort of came up with this textured, Hershey's kisses-shaped, blob. :) Originally, this was going to be my character for the Valentine's Greeting, but changed it after a few minutes.
Another test render, this time from the official greeting animation set. It's incredibly bare, but I'll be filling it up with things related to Valentine's Day. Call it a sort of "garage" if you want to. Something magical will be placed on the table. ;) Weeee.
Gloomy Valentine? I don't think so. Though the scene may look pretty eerie or depressing, it'll get a major turn near the end of everything. I only got as far as animating her walking to the doors before I got tired and bored. As my teachers always say, if you're getting frustrated with what you're doing, take a break and go to sleep (or do something else). Blogging is the "something else" I'm doing right now, though.
Classes tomorrow will be a drag. It often gets boring when we enter Philosophy class, mainly because our teacher's voice (female) is so soft you'd be sinning not to doze off.
Let's just leave it at that.
