Wow, where have I been to lately? I noticed how long it was since I last posted.
I mentioned how I wanted to continue doing my tutorials on building, posing and finally animating a scene in Flash but I might have accidentally deleted the tutorial files that I needed to make them. The enthusiasm that I had going early on sort of fizzled out once I discovered that said files have gone missing.
I am working on one project at a time lately, so my weekends are free. I was intending to use that free time to redo these tutorial files but I felt like it is becoming a chore and find no fun in it. So I bummed around rather than proceed working on it. I feel much happier that way.
I just completed my two-week posing project and I am now moving over to animation once again. Shifting from posing to animation, I had to take this weekend off to completely recharge my brain. I need a different mindset whenever I do animation; the procedures differ a lot from posing and requires much more effort and concentration.
The past three weeks were pretty significant for my wife. She has started to learn how to drive and has been very good at it, albeit still a bit unsteady, being that she is a complete beginner. She has trouble driving using our van so we had to get something that would be easier for her to practice with. We ended up leasing a car that is just the right size.
I might write about the adventure we had negotiating the lease for that car. It was a very pleasant experience made easier through a lot of research on the how-to’s of buying or leasing.
Until then, I better get back to work. I need to kick-start this animation project and get into gear!
