Welcome welcome, come in and have a seat, to the new blog!
I thought that since we have a long ass holiday we could catch up on old work and test out some tutorials and what not and post to this blog every day! I was gonna suggest we each put a pound (£1 or 2) and at the end get a tutor to pick the best, most improved work and the winner chooses a DVD from Gnomonworkshop.com . However we have to prepare for next term, some people might be away or work might be intense. My self and Orun have said we wanted to work on a comic, Bil said he's gonna do that also and I wanted to go over old work and get stuff finished.
So I thought we could just use this site to post work once aweek, it can be whatever or it can relate to what needs to be presented when we go back. That way we can help each other, offer advise and what not. the only thing we have to do is post once aweek, keep ourselves in the animation flow and keep in contact with fellow animators. If we are following a theme then we could decide it on a Sunday after the last submission of the week, for the following week. bearing in mind it can be any form: 2d, 3d, colored or special effects. This weeks theme (seeing as the week has already started) is "Toys" however u wanna interpretate it. I'm also going to open this blog up so you ALL can post ur work!
