Too busy to work :(

As currently posted I said that I would be entering the Spline Doctors animation contest but due to time restrictions, wives birthday's and a new computer which has failed to arrive I think I may have to bow out of this competition and either wait for another or work on my own idea.
One of the other reasons I have shied away from this is the ammount of profanity that this sound bite has, I mean I'm not shy of the cuss word, but I do know that it's a big no no to have swearing on your reel and this is something that I would have liked to have shown off. I know I could have had it beeped out but it's all a bit too much work to do. So yeah I shall post something soon, well whenever I get this new computer.

Here's some art work I did a while back, i really need to get back into this. This is a bit of cheating as I painted over a picture but I was trying a new style.

The Spline Doctors Animation Challenge

Damn, just when I say that I'm going to have a break from any dialogue animation the Spline Doctors have posted a challenge. It's to animate Christian Bale's meltdown that has the internet all excited today. There's plenty of time on this which is really appealing to me, more time to stroy board, animate, and tinker and pollish. Yep, I think I shall have a go at this.

Here's my effort for this month's 11second club entry, January 09. To be honest i'm not hugely happy with it, i intend to come back to it and clean up the things that aren't working like the suit case and the lyp sync. Time ran out and the lesson learned this month was that i need to start sooner, with a full time job I found it hard to find the time, but my wife was great for letting me have the weekends to do the work.
I think I shall miss this months challenge and give myself a well deserved break.
