Now just for a brief overview on how my animation & motion graphics has been going . The first few exercises taught me a fail good amount of what can be done in adobe after effects . And as the weeks have flown by so has my creativity in all my other assignments and then thinking of things I could do in after effects. I have learnt alot in a short time . I may not be an editor but now I know the roughly the where is what in after effects the ones that I would be using mostly and some of the how to's which I guess is the start and continuation to the future . My works I have done aren't much for now but its gives me a brief knowledge needed for now.

Its been a couple of days getting stressed and scared of what if im not able but still going to try and get it all done can't afford to fuck up . Everything seems to be crumbling building up crumbling building up trying to get a job is been quite a emotionally draining experience . The uni work is fine even though a lot is being given which has help stir up the creative juices . Even something I have done before it shows how i've matured up since when i was in SAE back in 2004 . I can say i've improved alot but I still am no where near how to be the top . I know patience is needed but its frustrating .

Im about to install after effects on my laptop after delaying course I need to buck up on this subject course it is a very fun tool , and has alot of potential to it and it be better for my class work too . My first assignment was ok , nothing to shout about but got me off to a start

I know this was meant for just my assignment but somehow I think i've found this to be quite liberating writing about my assignment and how I feel about them . I find my drawing becoming better everyday I do practice in terms of shading , learning to draw interesting composition getting proper proportions . There is still a lot of room for improvement to better my skills which is going to prove valuable for animation later on .

As for after effects im going to be installing that for my laptop so i can practice at home . After effects is a very powerful program for making video presentation as i've come to realize and is a strong tool for making a still object and adding dynamics and movement for lively which im going to practice up before my next assignment.

Visual communication is by far the second toughest but easier then People and Practices as Im not too found of the research bit but hey everyone gotta do it , no point complaining about it Ive learnt course you end up being last if you do

And also through games ive been playing on my PS3 seeing how they all tie up to what im doing now and how in future I will be using this when I do get into making games .

Thats all for now back to perseverance and dedication on to becoming a well rounded artist.
