Its very rare that I ever challenge myself - and If I ever hope to actually have a career in animation. I should probably animate. So - time to start using the deviantart groups to the max. Hope to make at least one portfolio quality piece a day seeing that I dropped out of college. - Oh shit - oh yeah. I might record myself making them with camtasia and provide links on the actual submissions for my fellow animators / interested artists.
As far as making animated shorts though- I'm a bit apprehensive. It would be cool to make one a month- but I'll probably end up killing myself if I make that my main focus. In the next year hopefully I can land an internship. doing flash at some new york studio (or any other studio for that matter). Then- a job hopefully. I feel confident now and I might be giving myself too large of a timeframe thus creating inevitable procrastination.
I'm going to get /fit/ again.
If you're reading this I will take requests. Yes I'll animate or draw you something.
