Oh, how the days fly by without so much as a wave. Because by the time they wave the next day is here...

(I now have, like, 10 journals in my drafts that I haven't finished... I better make one now... lol.)

Star Wars Celebration happened and that was exciting! I posted a bunch of photos on my instagram. I should be posting a few good ones on here soon enough.

Really excited to see the new teaser, but really am ready for a theatrical trailer. Ha. The "Star Wars: Rogue One" panel was sweet, but the teaser they showed really wasn't all that impressive. It seemed like something I would put together for a kickstarter or something. Which, actually, is kind of where the idea for those kinds of videos came from. They haven't shot anything for Rogue One yet. Heck, they're shopping around for a new director now. Probably for the better. Nonetheless, the trailer was stock footage with a model X-Wing, an easy set extension VFX overlay, and voices of pilots with very little sound effects. I bet that thing didn't take longer than a day to make. Ok, I don't mean to bash it... it was still very exciting! I just would have liked to see characters, that's all.

I'm going on a cross-country road trip soon! Taking my motorcycle and riding all the way to Nashville, Arkansas, and Florida before hitting my new home in New Orleans! I have family out that way, hence the extra spots. I'm pretty excited and pretty scared. Haha. No telling how exhausted I will be from 8 hours on the road for a day. Just got the bike in the shop for service so she's ready to haul ass!

AND I'm leaving this Saturday! (if all goes to plan)
I plan on getting photos and video of the trip and hopefully will have some time to put something together. Should be a lot of fun :)

Haha, thanks! Laughter is one of the best things in the world :)
Great work so far! Don't worry about being "lower level." I was there once, too!
It's all about knowledge. Knowing techniques, knowing your medium of choice, but more importantly, it's about knowing YOU.
I can see you're going in the right direction. You're very good with shapes.
Gonna watch you because I look forward to seeing your progress!

AND!!
Welcome to dA!!! :wave: :party:

I've had little time to really dive into any projects as of late, but seeing other people's work always inspires me to create.

Stumbling upon your page (while handing out llamas), I figured I'd take a chance with this.

Even though you're more about film and effects, I think you might find this website (www.Psymily.com) to be interesting. You upload photos (better if it has a human subject, but can be of your pets, or whatever you want to try.), use the sites program to remove the background and then take quizzes that will create these designs for the image you're 'currently using'.

It's a really interesting concept and hope you check it out and like it. Please let me know what you think. Hope you have a good day.

Thanks for sharing. It seems like a really interesting concept. Although, as an artist, I like to express myself through my own work. This, to me, seems like it would be great for people who aren't necessarily connected to their inner-creative-self yet and gives them sort of a push in the right direction. It looks like pre-existing templates put together through information and not emotion. Don't get me wrong, it's a great idea and I'm sure there's an audience for it, however that audience - respectfully - isn't me. :)

Art is the embodiment of our feelings. It is also probably the most subjective thing in the history of the world. Haha.

Thanks for checking it out and I can totally understand. Just trying to make more people aware of it. But obviously refuse to spam it on every profile page I visit, cause half won't care, and I don't need to get suspended for something that won't be effective anyhow.
