It's funny how sad I became just by logging back onto this site. I haven't even been on here in almost 2 years, but the second i started thinking about all the friends i made on here and all the things we did together, I honestly almost wanted to cry. This site was such a big part of my life that right now it feels like I've walked into my childhood home, only it's been abandoned. I always wanted to come back here and get more involved with the community, but it seems like the list of responsibility i have in my day-to-day life just grew bigger and bigger to the point that i almost forgot about this site all together.
But yeah, i guess that's life. Hopefully this profile isn't completely dead yet and I can still make a comeback, but it's not gonna happen today. So till then.....Later ;)

Here's another walk cycle animation i just finished. I know it has a few flaws that i could've fixed, but I decided it would be better to just finish it and take note of my mistakes and learn from them.
Looks like she has some leg popping, over rotation in the hips, she's leaning forward a bit too much, and her arms could've used more weight.

Don't really know how to start this one off, so I'll just spit it out as I go. It's been about 5 years since I've animated anything and something like 4 years since I've done anything in 3D at all. Since then, all I've really been doing is dealing with work, relationships, and responsibilities, and most of my free time has been spent playing video games or tinkering in the garage just trying to kill time and unwind. But a few weeks ago when I heard the news about Monty Oum passing away, it made me stop and think about my life and what I'm doing with it. And it turns out I really haven't been doing a damn thing at all. Somewhere along the line I got comfortable going day to day without any goals and accepting the stress that comes with having a job that I've begun to hate and care absolutely nothing about. But thanks to Monty (and I hate that it had to be because of his death) I've come to realize over the past few weeks that I desperately need to get back to my passions and educate myself if I want a better and happier future.
And with that here's my first animation in over five years. It's nothing spectacular, I'm just trying to brush up on the basics in preparation for taking classes this year.

So where to start?
Well i guess i should start off by telling you guy, i got a new job.
I got a job a few months back with a conveyor installation company. And so far it's drastically improved my life. I've been able to stop living pay check to pay check and finally start saving for school. And lets not forget about games and junk i don't need. ;)
I got started off in Sarasota Florida, moved on to Jacksonville Florida and now I'm currently staying inLittle Rock Arkansas till February.
Also, I should be getting back into my 3D modeling and animation very soon and really making some headway on some old projects that have been put off for far too long. And to top it off, i get to hit the ground running with the new 27" iMac i just dropped $2,700 on. So expect to see some updates in the near future.
Till then.........keep warm, cuz it's frickin cold outside!

Holy crap, it's seriously been a minute since I've been on here!
I can't say much has changed since my last journal entry. Since then I've pretty much been living pay check to pay check because peak season ended at work, but things seem to be getting better a little bit at a time. I'm just hoping that by the end fo the year I can get all the crap out of the way so I can start saving for school. plus I would also like to have the money and time to finish a few projects that I've already started.
Back to life.....see you guys later. ;)
