Good day, birdies! ♥
It's been a while! I figured I'd just take a minute to catch up with you guys, since I've been all over the place lately. School and work have been keeping me so busy! This is, without a doubt, the busiest semester of my life. I do dozens of drawings every day, but haven't had the time lately to sit down and finish whole pieces. (Though I have started several, which I expect I'll finish during my upcoming break :>)
In other news, today I had the chance to go to a private screening of 'Rise of the Guardians' (one of the perks of being in animation here is automatic reservations at advance screenings, which I didn't know existed until...very recently). I thought it was quite good! The character designs and character performance were the best part, in my mind, even though it was also rife with great special effects animation. The story and pacing definitely had some weak spots, but it recovered from that with charming, engaging characters and tidy animation. (Fun fact: the director, Peter Ramsey, is well known for his work as a storyboard artist—his experience there really shone in the action sequences of the film. So slick!) Anyway, I recommend that all of you go see it when it comes out!
Prediction: Girls will be freaking out about Jack Frost and/or Pitch for the next several months. Because I know you, internet ladies, and this is what you do.
And more news! As per tradition, I am doing a holiday giveaway soon. The 'goods' this year will be original sketches + large posters of several of my paintings. As always, the giveaway will be open to all of my watchers, even those who live abroad. I'll update with more details on that this weekend! Just keep your eyes peeled. :>
That's it for now! Have a great night!
P.S. Just a side note, it appears my brother made a Doritos commercial. And somehow it absolutely cracks me up. He's the one at the end who runs back into the building, haha --> [link]
