Here I am, for yet another post of wonderfully inspiring things that I’ve come across since I last stopped in here. But first, AM update!!!

I am currently in Week 5 of Class 2, and have finished my first of three shots for this week! I’m pretty happy with it, although there are a few revisions that I’m planning on doing. Nevertheless, I will share it with you today! I’m pretty proud of how far my animation has come already, and I’ve only just begun! My mentor for this class is wonderful! He always brings some wonderful little clips to class for us to watch and totally geek out over, showing us how beautiful the arcs are and how much planning goes into shots. Next week, he wants us all to bring two questions with us to our Q and A since he says he won’t have any fun clips for us. I must start thinking of some things to ask him… Any ideas?

Anyway, here is the final shot that I turned in. (Although, like I said I will be doing a few updates on it!)

Next is some really exciting news that AM came out with while at SIGGRAPH. For those of you who do not know. SIGGRAPH is an annual convention for computer graphic people to totally geek out on awesome new and exciting things in the computer graphics world, including animation! AM announced an improved version of Bishop. Bishop is AM’s flagship character that has been used by students and alumni of AM since 2005, and now Bishop 2.0 is an even BETTER version of what AM has made. It can best be described in this video:

Pretty sweet huh? Oh, and if you don’t know what 71 tredecillion is, it’s this: 71 times 10 to the 43rd power, or 710,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. Wow.

I let myself take a break the other day, and I actually just sat by the pool, read, and daydreamed. It was pretty magical. While I did this, I was thinking about one of my newest most favorite books, The Art of the Disney Princess. This is a book full of tons of interpretations of Disney princesses created by Disney artists. It’s amazing. There is one in there by Eli Trinh that I especially like. It’s a very graphic piece of just Princess Aurora’s hair. Thinking about this piece got me thinking of how nice all of the princesses’ hair dos are, and I though of how cool it would be to do a graphic installation of a representation of every princess hair do from Disney. Genius. The beginning is a very good place to start, so here is the first that I did:

Can you guess which Disney Princess this is?

I’m proud of her, but I am planning to do a revision or two, and I still have to do the other girls as well…

I have a few other things to share, but I don’t want to go all sensory overload. So, that’s all for now!

Happy Animating!
