New badge!

OK, so I just added an Animation Mentor Badge at the end of the page.

I'm not a student, but I'm considering taking the course in a couple of years. As I read in a post, the right moment to get into Animation Mentor is when you feel you are not improving anymore, when you feel stuck as an animation artist and you can't find the advise you're looking for from your peers.

I haven't reach that point yet, I'm only at the beginning of the path. But I might be there some day, and because of the work I've seen from the students of AM, I wouldn't hesitate to subscribe myself.

Anyways, the badge is there! :P

I have to keep going with my skinning for my "Skinning" class. :S

C ya!

Some intro words...

A year ago I was working for an engineering company, but then decided that it wasn't for me. At least not for a lifetime job. I did a 10-year projection of my professional life and I didn't like what I saw. Same job, same desk, same thing. No way!

So, my passion for movies and video games took me to a journey to the 3D realm, where I thought modeling was my dream profession... Until I hit the "Intro to Animation" course.
It completely change my life! Just the whole idea of bring a character to life burned my mind and took it to a new level. I think it was probably on a the few moments in my life when I was completely sure what I wanted.

I decided to follow the "Animation" path and that's the reason for this blog. I want everybody to know what are the pros and cons about this career, and view it from a "newbie" point of view.
You can find a lot of blogs online about how to do things right, for sure! But what about how NOT to do them? Well, you might find it here. Since I'm learning (as everybody, I guess), you'll read new discoveries and ideas about the problems I encounter along this hard but fun road called ANIMATION!

So, I hope you have fun and I be of some help.

New Blog!

Hello everyone!

I just realized that most of the blogs I read come from the Google Blogger service. I use to have my blog in my website (http://kronkhal.jimdo.com) but I compare it with the Blogger service and my web provider does not have an option to subscribe to my blog (other than bookmarking the page, which is not bad, but not what I wanted).

So, I decided to change. Now, if I happen to write something interesting, you will have the option to subscribe to my blog. Good, eh? I will keep the blog on my site for now, I'll decide later if I keep it permanently or not.

Enjoy and have fun!
