Third Year Film!

It's that time of the year again!
Film time is finally over and summer vacation is just around the corner.
This year, I chose to do a CG film and I actually managed to finish it.
It was a tough beast to tackle but I learned so much in the process.
I really wanted to focus on animation this year, but I didn't quite get to do that because of modeling, rigging and just getting Maya to cooperate.
I almost handed it off to someone else to do it but in the end, I'm really glad that I did it myself.
With a ton of help of course :P

Many many thanks to my family, friends and CalArts staff who helped me during the process.
There's no way I could've done it without all of their help.

So here it is:

Print Fair and Films

It's been one crazy third year but I finally finished my film!
Also, another exciting thing that happened this weekend was the CalArts annual print fair.
I didn't even know it existed until a fellow graphic designer friend who was running the fair this year invited Kari, Melanie and I to attend.
It was so much fun and I'm super glad I got to be a part of it.
I just wanted to post a picture of our table and some of the prints that I was selling.

I drew myself in the picture because I was the one taking the picture.
I wish all three of us were in there. 

Here are the prints that I was selling:

(this one might be upside down... )

The rest are original watercolor pieces that I was also selling:

And lastly, here is a still from my third year film this year:

I'll be posting my film after the Open Show this upcoming Saturday. I'm super excited to finally see everyone's film!

Alien Shrimp

No posts means it's film crunch time!
I just animate in Maya all day and it's a bit sad because I miss drawing.
But at least I was able to design this shrimp alien for Andy Suriano's class!
I looked up pictures of mantis shrimp because they are way cool.
And I got to ink my design this time.

Films due in 2 weeks!
Push on everyone!
