Two days before I finished the 30-day animation project, my laptop’s hard drive crashed and my father had to reformat it so I can use it again. Fortunately, I backed up all the files related to the 30-day animation project - as for the other files… well, I had to say goodbye to them. I no longer have copies of the previous digital drawings I’ve done, save for those that I’ve posted here, as well as the photographs and the videos I took last summer. I also didn’t get to back up the brushes I’ve used (good thing I still know where to get them). Yep, lesson learned the hard way.
This was my routine last month (which was just a few days ago haha): I’d wake up really early - or at least try my best to do so - then spend the whole day in front of my desk, pounding out drawing after drawing. Of course there was a bit of procrastination involved too, but it mostly involved watching my pet lovebirds playing in their cage, or watching TEDTalks. I’d draw until it’s really late and realize it’s already the next day. Then I’d crawl to bed worrying about the next scene to be animated, and I repeat that, until I finally nailed waking up by 7:00 am and eventually realized that getting more sleep makes me more productive for the next day.
I really learned a lot from undertaking this 30-day animation project (I cannot post it as of now). Onwards to the next project! :D
Some gesture drawings of people dancing. Today I watched Dirty Dancing, Flashdance and lots of dance videos at YouTube. Tomorrow I’m going to animate dances *u* - I’m both excited and nervous for this.
