Achievement Unlocked: Class Two Completed

Well, it happened. I finished Class Two! I had an awesome time this quarter and learned A TON. Marlon was a fantastic teacher and I don't think I could have had a better quarter! I can't believe that I'm one third through with AM. Before I know it, I'll be at the graduation BBQ, wondering how 18 months felt like two. Here is my progress reel, with all my Class Two stuff rendered allllll pretty for you:

Well I hope you enjoyed this quarter as much as I did, lovely readers. I'll be back in the New Year when Class Three gets going but until then, have a happy holiday season! Eat lots of cookies! See you soon!

Week 11! Last Assignment!

Hello! So it's that time again, Week 11. Our very last assignment has been turned in and Class Two is drawing to a close! Already about one third done with AM?! Whaaaa? 

Well I polished and polished and finally finished up my shot! Take a looksee:

Poor Stewie's never gonna be king. After hitting a few roadblocks with this shot, I'm quite happy with how it came through in the end. Marlon was as well, noting that I could just add a little bit of 'keep alive' with the holds to touch it up. In his end-of-term assessment he gave me great feedback, so I am a very happy camper with Class Two as a whole. Can't believe it's nearly done! All that's left is to put together my progress reel, which I'll have up in the next couple days so keep your eyes peeled, readers! See you soon.

Week 10! We're closing in!

Oh hey so I only have two weeks of school left WHAT?! I know I keep asking this but WHERE DOES THE TIME GO? Really. It's freaking me out. It's Decemeber! How?!

Admist all this freaking out, I did finally take my shot out of stepped, which was scary. But I think that I finally got out of that middle "I've forgotten how to do everything" phase now, and the shot is ripe to be fully polished next week. So I'm thankfully back on schedule! See for yourself:

Marlon asked me to change the ending so that Stewie stays in frame, and to do whatever I could to make the gag as funny as possible. After some invaluable feedback from Marlon and my peers, I decided on this ending, where he lands on his bum, because landing on your bum is always funny, duh. I'm pretty happy with it at this point, especially after kind of losing my way on this shot last week. I still have quite a bit of polish to do next week so come back soon to see what I do with it! Cheers!
