OK, let's start with the good stuff: This was a great choice of font, and the typography is really dynamic. It catches one's eye from t...

It's been a whole since my last update, as usual, and as usual, a lot has been going on. 

Firstly, things are going great at The Animation School, and if things continue to go great, which I'm hoping it will, I'll hopefully finally start on my Honours in Animation next year, and Masters after that. 

So apart from that, I'm also moving into my own place this weekend. It's spacious, and has a lot of sunlight, which, as any artist knows, is great for killing the fungus that tends to grow in one' ears if you haven't Gotten Out Much Lately. 

Also, cheap meals and laundry are offered, which is nice. 

Anyway, I'm making progress with Space Helga, and I'm really looking forward to showing it to everybody in  oh, about another two or three months. First up, I need to finish texturing. Helga's space, rig it and shoot its flight path. Next, start cleaning up the block, make some keys, then Tweens, then color that sucker. 

Also, I'm pretty sure the voice over work is going to be a huge pain in the arse, as I have. Yet to learn how to do that, but I'm sure it won't pose that much of a problem. 

So, yeah, that's me.

hi =D sorry for openly gaping at your work, Master Thinus.

NO Need to apologise, Celeste ;) Although I'd hardly call myself a master.

Seriously debatable =D

Glen Keane is a master. Juanjo Guarnido is a master. Milt Kahl was THE master. 

I'm nowhere near that. I've still got another three decades of study to go.
