Happy New Year!
First piece of news: Animation Mentor Semester 3 has started! My mentor this semester is Mike Gasaway, who directed quite a few episodes of Jimmy Neutron. We had our first class Q&A on Tuesday, and it was awesome; I’m really looking forward to the semester.
Second piece of news: I’m still studying Blender. I’m now about half-way through the book Blender Foundations. Chapter I’m currently on: surfacing. That is, applying textures to surfaces and tweaking the way the renderer calculates how the light bounces off surfaces. It’s really boring… uh… I mean interesting stuff.
Finally, novel update: I’m still planning my untitled fantasy novel. This morning I completed my outlines for Chapter 13. I currently have 45 chapters planned, so I’m only about 29% complete. This will take a long time, apparently, and I’m only in the planning phase.
That’s pretty much it. It’s been a pretty uneventful week here. *yawn*
