Welcome to 2013

This post is a little late, since it's the second of January and all that business but hey...I was busy animating. Anyway, manners, HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone! I hope you all had a great Christmas and that Spliney Claus brought you lots of fantastic animation/art/anything related gifts.

The header has had its yearly update and the blog is looking a bit fresher for it too. I normally make a few resolutions, but they're mostly always the same. They're really no different to my normal day to day drive but it's always beneficial to look over the past year and decide what you'd like to change to make the next one even better.

My resolutions boil down to the following two points:

  • Do more
  • Get better

That is, to do more of everything I want to get better at. Or to get better at the things I want to do more. I do have more detailed ideas of what to get better at and what to do more but that'd only bore you...nobody wants to know that I'd like to walk the dogs more.

One resolution is to start posting here more often. I have a few things I'd like to talk about but finding the time between animating, drinking coffee and walking German Shepherds can be tough. I'm gonna force it in there! Here are some subjects that I'll be covering:

  • My time at Travellers Tales
  • Thumbnails (thanks to all who've contributed so far)
  • The workflow toolbox
  • Animated film reviews
  • Updates on the short I'm working on - Cold Day In Hell
  • Sharing useful scripts and tips

That's all I can think of for now, hopefully some of it sounds interesting.

Another resolution is to draw more, so to sign off...here's a caricature I drew of myself:

Ha ha, I like the caricature. Fun proportions on him, and the nose shape is very slick. Good luck with the doing more and getting better for 2013! I'm looking forward to the thumb nailing post. :)
