Water Color

     Hey guys... So that's my stuff. That's what I did. Lots of fucking learning. Lots of, "OH SHIT, I'M GOING TO FAIL!" Lots of, "Holy fuck... I'm never going to be good enough..." 
But look at the stuff I did. I mean. I think I can do stuff relatively well in 3D. I know that my Winston character wouldn't cut it in the industry. But Yugo... Everything I could do right is on that model. All my mistakes are on Winston. It's kind of how I wanted it to be though. I valued Yugo a lot more because in my mind he was the coolest character.
My environment stuff was pretty much just trying to compete with the seniors in my class, who were really fucking good at what they were doing. I just hope I matched their level of skill.
I wish I would have waited to take that class so that way I would have had more 3D experience. But you know what? I think I did a pretty damn good job. It was like running a marathon as an overweight guy and finishing.
So in media... Lots of learning. Lots of techniques I can apply to my animation. I'm just trying to be as good as the illustration majors in the class. I hope that I can keep working with some of the mediums. I find water color to be very relaxing. Just really hard for me to get started... I had 4 or 5 attempts on this sea turtle before I got this last one.
