Well, as far as animating goes, I couldn´t do much the past weekend. And as I described in a previous post I was quite excited re-exploring the journey it takes building up a ball and socket structure. It did however came to an end and will remain ´stand-by´for some time. I do want to continue on making animation and I am glad for my return, and will possibly continue with clay and wire armatures.
September is almost over, thankfully. Crazy month. Crazy transitions. Crazy changes. Weather, people coming and going. ..and I went sick for the most part. I am ok now. Oh and by the way, if you happen to be among my contacts from my FB account, and suddenly you don´t ¨see¨me there. Nothing personal. I simply decided focusing my online-appearance here rather than anywhere else. So far no regrets. Which means, I will continue ongoing writings of my animation learning curve from here. Just so you all know. For the records.
m_) I keep studying Puppetix as a character and this time I focused mainly on his poses applying not just the expressions in his head but the entire composition. This is so far what I have gotten by tracing different sketches I have done over time.
ONTO A NOT-SO-EPIC JOURNEY THAT LEADS TO EPIC JOURNEY
Past Friday returning from work, after a long afternoon in a waiting line, standing impatient, somebody called my name and I could finally pick up my package from dear Friend John Hankins (Castlegardener) who delivered it about 5 months ago from today. I never imagined it would take this long, and I had already gave up any hope they would give it to me.
30 Ft. of Alumminum Wire 1 Plier 14 Pieces of Clay 2 Undrewrap Rolls 3 Pairs of Puppet Feet (Already built-in with tie-downs and all) 1 Puppet Monster Creature made by John Hankins Himself. 1 Sketchbook 4x6 Inches 1 Pencil Some Sheets
John had warned me about times with shipping. But time kept passing by and I had not even news nor any notification from post office department regarding a package for me. I did try remaining as patient as possible but then a second month went on and I was already upset and frustrated.
But it took that long and that was just the beginning..of a rathe…
