Happy ChrismaHanzaKwanzika!

    Or whatever you choose to celebrate this time of year! I'm celebrating the snow we just got and my amazing family!     ....Speaking of, here's a Christmas card that I made. It probably needs some explaining.
     It's a mash up of an old picture we have of my parents, and my brothers. The picture was before I was alive so I guess I thought it would be funny if I literally photoshopped myself in it? And added random Christmas props? And other holly-jolly things?

The animals were a cat and dog in the original image, I cut out the cat and added the my dog from my lifetime, both dogs were named Buffy. Both passed away, so we have some little angels too ha ha!

It all resulted in this card that is probably hard to look at,
 hope it puts you in the holiday mood! (or happy or whatever :) )

Quick Update!

Hello everybody,

This semester was really great! Learning new things everyday and fighting through the issues to keep on making my work. It took me a while but HERE is my Simple Polygons assignment, kind of the final for my Computer Animation class. I made this here giraffey from its design, model, textures, rig, and I animated him. Super fun!

Also since, I made it and it was hard, here's my first ever lip sync traditionally... I really hope to go back in this with photoshop and clean up portions and make it stronger (so I don't feel so iffy about showing it anymore).... She's a mean, lean, dancin' machine.

On to better things now?... Purhaps!? YES.

More scans coming soon. Plus Xmas cards, animation tests, and models! Big plans for break!
