There is something really empowering about the first time you animate something. I may have only made a star swing across the screen while looping in circles whilst a "planet" moved across the screen in the other direction, stop and grew large. But it felt AMAZING! Even better when I made a circle (I would like to say ball but we haven't gotten to 3D stuff yet, le sigh) bounce around the screen and gradually change colour. But the best thing EVER was learning how to do the white dots part of the James Bond Gun Barrel sequence :3. I literally felt, as the title suggests, like the god of my own universe. It. Was. AWESOME. Cannot wait to animate more stuff, get into 3D and Special Effects and all the good Digital Media stuff!
Had to start a Pinterest page for this class and put up all my inspirations and things I want to try. Better than writing a journal (ew, barf - ironic that a writer doesn't like journaling huh? I loathe it, in fact). I will try not to try to find stuff to put on it and just let it all come to me organically. I need to remember Typography is part of it. So far, it's all YouTube videos. But maybe I can start browsing some graphic design stuff on here. There's an idea! DeviantArt will be an excellent resource!
(And I do wish the lizard(s) - I don't know if it's one or more than one - in my room would just be quiet sometimes. Le sigh guys, you can be really noisy, I don't know if you're fighting or humping).
