I am sure many people are wondering what I am doing now...( especially from friends from school) I am still animating and drawing everyday! I am actually interning at July Films, and I am very lucky enough that they asked me to work on one of their new projects as an animator. So... for the last few days, I have been doing some experimental animation for one of the characters! To me, it is my first experience just to see all the process from the concept art to story, character design, layout, and animation.... it's very inspiring to see other artists working together. There are some really talented artists, and everyday it's very inspiring to see all of their work. The problem is.....I get frustrated with myself.
Animation is so deep, it shows so much...when I get frustrated, Mike says that he can see my frustration through the animation. Before the test animation I am now working on, I was working on this test for a few weeks, and I had a very hard time animating it. I did the scene over and over and over and over.......and it still didn't have enough energy. I finally finished....and there are still many things that have to be improved, but for now, I think this is done.
I guess I realized that I need to enjoy every step I take as I grow and appreciate the struggle. Why is life is so hard sometimes......?
