I realised that I haven't shared any of the animation that I've done for Dragons of Atlantis online. I was working on my demo reel a little while ago but for reasons it didn't get finished. I would still like to finish updating it and get that online soonish though. For today, please put your eyeballs on the animation I did of the Cloud Baby Dragon!

I'm already getting antsy to get back to work on my film after being
away for just a week! It's like a Siren, calling me. I've watched a few movies since my painting milestone
and I made a fitness schedule for myself that in theory would be easy to
keep up with. Part of that schedule has me getting to the gym after
work and before dinner but since I decided to do that I've ended up
socialising or being too busy every evening. Argh! I would much prefer
to work out in the morning but, pretty much due to my hair, that means
I'm late for work every day. My hair is long and it takes forever to
wash, brush and dry it. Dammit. Cut it you say? I don't think so. So I dunno. I really want to exercise more but I
have a hell of a time fitting fitness into my daily schedule. Maybe I'll just try exercise in the morning again.
I have made a little bit of time for learning Maya on my own in the last week! I don't think it's going to be a stretch for me to get comfortable animating in Maya. I feel like it's completely within my reach. It would be cool to get better at modeling and just have a general understanding of more Maya tools, though animating is always going to be my specialty and passion. I'll keep at it and put up some tutorials that I complete sometime.

I've been using Toonboom to animate scene 10 of my short film. I'm creating hand drawn animation for this scene, but doing it fully ...
Often times, especially for a technically complicated shot, I start planning a scene like this:
This is another post for Toonboom animators! I'm going to keep changing up the type of blog posts I do; some will be more personal, some...
