Sorry for double post.

Mods Disappearing

I just looked in the art forum and the first thread I went on had BMK on. Jmtb02 posted on this thread the other day.

Tomorrow I leave to embark on my second year of college at the University of the Arts. I am absolutely looking forward to it. I have an apartment now with some friends, and I am finally starting to take classes directly relating to Graphic Design. It should be great.

Next time you're in the 'delph Luis, and don't want to stay at the Omni, I'm running my own Bed and Breakfast. Give me a ring.

Sounds fun. I just moved into my dorm at School of Visual Arts last Sunday. Classes don't start until next tuesday though. :/

Just a note to some of you UK regs.

Ive got a 3 month love film free trial, worth £55. Anyone want it? Better then it sitting around until it expires so I thought id give it out to someone on here. Just pm me or something. You need a credit card, just so they can verify who you are, and then as long as you cancel before 3 months is up, it doesnt cost you a penny. What it gives you is 3 months of unlimted film and games rentals, very good imo. Anyway just pm me

that's the beauty of being an experienced flash developer / web designed - if you work hard on the internet you don't have to work hard irl. If you enjoy working at codemasters it's great though. My brother is going to uni in a few months so everyone in my family has been trying to get him jobs. he went to a store called "freak". i don't know if you have it in america or england, but it's basically everything a nerd would need. they sell many video games, figurines like warhammer and lotr, board games, plastic swords (for rdnd), magic/pokemon cards, and all that sort of nerdy stuff. you can also sign up there to play dnd or rdnd in a group, and you can find people to play all sort of games. after his first day working there, he quit because he said it was too much work for him to prepare the adventures for the dnd groups etc. he didn't evne know how much they were gonna pay him.

as for me, I hope that by the time I finish school, I'd have enough money piled up from flash and websites. I quit playing wow this summer so things should go more smoothly than they did after my last games.

ps: again, if anyone wants to collaborate on making a website (and actually has a good idea), ill gladly do all the mysql / php etc and we can split ads revenue.

oh and in other news, I just got back from mountain biking. I fell from a ramp and ended up doing a summer sault (sp ??? lol) in the air and landing on the ground that was going down in a sharp slope. luckily i had a helmet and I didn't break anything, but I got some badass injuries on my arm, shoulders, leg and back, so now I can claim that I often get in manly fights with manly men using manly broken pieces of glass (that i use for my manly shaving ofc)

I was going to go there. I was tied between three schools before I decided on uArts. I'm happy where I am, but SVA is an absolutely amazing school and I'm sure I would love it there just as much.

I have a friend that goes there. He's going into Cartooning or 3D animtion or something. I'll hook you gusy up if you want. What are you going into?

Am I a Slow Animator?

Sometimes I feel other animators are able to whip up some decent animation much faster than me. Is it because I like to take a lot of breaks from animating like gaming or posting in the BBS or maybe I use the wrong techniques?

This for example took me 3 hours of almost non-stop animating at 30 FPS. Is that normal or do I just animate slowly?

I'd say that's a little slower than "normal" whatever normal is... Speed comes from experience, which includes practice in drawing, so you can draw more complex things easier, and techniques which make the process faster. Like if you didn't know how to onionskin, that would take forever... If you want to become a faster animator, practice is the way to do it. You can also use shortcuts like reusing certain frames instead of redrawing the same image slightly different, our eyes can basically piece together a movement even if it isn't completely whole.

Maybe you just need to focus on specific projects rather than just random animating or artwork. Come on, three years is waaaaaaaaaaaaay too long to procrastinate(And I would know).

It was a hassle for me because ALL of my friends ridiculed me saying "it wont work, its a jip, you wont get an ipod, your wasting your time, just burn in a fire shut up im not helping you"

AND NOW WHO'S LAUGHING!!! MWHAHAHA

Ipod you only need 5 refferals, you dont have to put in any bank info, just your postal/zip code, house address (else they couldnt mail it to you) and thats about it...

what you do is you take your cell phone and do a text thing, the text costs 2$ and once you finish you can just cancel the text ppl from continuing to spam your phone. SO TECHNICALLY the ipod isnt free, i paid 2$ for it.... wow, i think i got ripped off... i should just return it >__>
once you do that, you need to get 5 friends to do the same thing with a link you provide.

heres a few things:
1. I started this at the beginning of march, and i just got it in mid -late august.... so it does take A LONG FREAKING TIME!
2. don't forget about the site, if you DO get all of your friends to do it, try to keep up to date with the site or else you'll miss the "press this button to request approval" and things like that. Thats how they jip you XD
3. read the terms of service, theres a few things that you should note carefully me-thinks.

4. Everyone interested in getting any apple product, this is the one im going for next actually, just take the following link and do the stuff. I'm going for the iMac or the Macbook, they sell for alot right? XD
http://istuff.freepay.com/?r=45340119

Thanki kindly ^_^

and one more time for you non beleivers, IT IS REAL!!! I got my ipod yesterday =D and no, i didn't just buy it... why would i? i have a zune already XD
