I live. Honest.
Sorry for disappearing for so long, but you know what?
Today, I just finished my last class. At Hopkins. Forever.
I'M SO CLOSE TO BEING DONE, GUYS. SO FRIGGIN' CLOSE. Just two more weeks of finals, then one more week for graduation! It feels pretty unreal, I don't think it's sunk in yet, hahahah...
(Oh, and for the record, that last class was Life Drawing. Which we did outside in the sculpture garden because the weather was lovely. And for which I watercolored. And all was well.)
Anyway! Some things that went down while I was out:
Started Script Frenzy but quit at 61 pages this year to work on my Intro to 2D Animation Final instead. Sorry, Iris. Definitely going to keep at it to try and have some proof drafts polished up for this June--I've even roughed out the ending, so it's CLOSE IN SIGHT!!! (Once I figure out how to off like, half the cast, hahahah;;; /shot) I, uh, might be curious too as to whether or not anyone would be interested in beta-reading my novel??? @v@;; M-Maybe???
Had the best goddamn semester of my LIFE.
Seriously, I just--totally fell in love with MICA classes and the professors and students there (thank you ~shark-bomb
for making my classes so much fun! ♥), and I just, good gosh I never wanted this semester to finish! I learned so much but really, I just felt so incredibly lucky and happy to be there every day. It's the closest I've felt to belonging anywhere, and it was just--the best time of my life, honestly.
Finished* my Intro to 2D Animation project. The whole 3:58 long beast of a thing, though I'll be poking back in with my professor this coming week to fix up some scenes and tweak it best I can, but then hopefully I'll, ahm, post it here or something?? I'm really kind of proud of it--all 3 minutes and 58 seconds of it, all 5560 frames of it--took me weeks of working my ass off on it and camping out for at least 4 nights in the Animation studio, yeahhhhhhhhh good times! *Actually, I left about 400 frames of action in animatic-form to work on the ending first for the final viewing Wednesday, but I'll be getting back to work on those post-haste!
Reconsidering what I want to do with myself, again. No surprise there. We'll see how things go, but for now, I'm just ready to relax for a couple of months (in China, whoop!) and take some time to draw something for myself again. For now though, I think I'm going to go take a quick break and enjoy a summer thunderstorm on the roof...
Need to catch up on some sleep, finish some final homework assignments and projects, but after that I promise that I'll get back on here and comment on all the stuff that I've been neglecting--and pull together a sketchdump, and finish up the AD Swan Song arc! (Extra hugs and kisses to anyone who's been following me up on that, you guys have my heart, I swear~ ♥)
Anyway. Just wanted to pop back in and let you guys know what I've been up to. Basically, I just had the time of my life this semester, and I loved every second of it.
Why can't the good things last forever?
