Im sure this happens to alot of people, you know when you have so much you want to do that you get none of it done? Its alot like that. I finally get my PC back in full working order, but i find that when i try to go back to The Ultimate Asparagus that i just dont have the drive i once did. After not being able to touch it for a few months it just doesnt seem to matter anymore. At the same time during my PC less period i had a tonne of new ideas, i got all the storyboarding for my graphic novel complete, aswell as some filled out ideas for some short animations. But then i cant seem to focus, last night i sat down to work on my new website but somehow ended up starting work on a music video to the doors "Break on Through". God knows whats going on in my head at the moment. I suppose ive just lost the desire to work on full toons and prefer the idea of just experimenting and trying new things in the animation medium. Im no longer out to impress other people but rather just to screw around to entertain myself and to see what i can do.
In other news, work was quite last week so i got to do alot of doodling while i should have been working, which is always fun.
Ive been playing alot of Pikmin 2 lately for some reason, i never finished it when i got it and im kinda determined to finish it now. Did this little tribute to Captain Olimar in Open Canvas, first real attempt at the program.
Ive also been watching alot of clips from Neverhood and Skullmonkeys on Youtube, i absolutely love the style and humour found in the series. The music is also fantastic, if i ever made a feature film id want Terry.S.Taylor at the helm.
And this is just because everyones all about Smash Bros at the moment...
These are all just little doodles i did for the hell of it, doodling for the sake of doodling i suppose.
Lastly, ive also been doing a bit of vector art which is relaxing as always.
And yeh, that pretty much sums things up i suppose.
