First off, a little late but Happy New Years! I started my sixth and final class in Animation Mentor a couple weeks back. Exciting and scary at the same time. Exciting to know how much I have accomplished in the last year. Scary cause it is almost over and in many ways I feel I still have so much to learn. I am not saying that Animation Mentor has not done their job of education, they definitely have! As my skills develop and grow so do my expectations of where I want to be. If I was able to take a modified DeLorean over 88 and show my reel to the old me a year ago I would have been ecstatic. However I have grown enough as an animator to look back at my work with a critical eye and know there is much needed work. So I will have my work cut out for me in the next several weeks.
On another note it is the last day for me to get my vote in for the Annie Awards. I have already started the voting process. I am saving the biggest category for last. The features category. This really has been a great year for feature films. Which makes for a harder time voting. For the most part I have my decision made. I am going to watch one the films again tonight as a refresher before I cast my final vote.
