First term at VFS

video
So my first term at VFS was a roller coaster. Mainly with tests and exams, I had to rush everything at the end of the term in order to get to my brother's graduation but I was able to finish everything and get it all in on time.

There was a ton of work, I had to finish a still life for my lighting, surfacing, and modeling class. Within the still life there were over ten objects and many of them were pretty complicated to build. But despite my inabilities and the fact that I have very little history with maya (the program we use to model the assets) I did it. Not only did I have to build the objects but then I had to surface them and bump map them then compose and light them. And because of events taking place I had two less days to accomplish these projects.
Here is an example of what I did:


I'm sure at the end of the year I will look back and laugh at the easiness of each of these projects but right now I am stressed.... at least I was a week ago when I had to get it done.

Along with those projects we also had to finish a 3d and classical animation. Mine is the animation above. It is an expression of my love for basketball. Or a foretelling of my future, whatever, it was a fun animation to do.

This was only a little taste of what I did this past two months. I could say that I'll do better this next term but it is supposed to be the hardest term out of all of them. And so I don't know what I'll end up showing. if anything... just like my 30 minutes of drawing... oh well.

we'll see
