First week of school, I already have a bunch of homework. But I've got a great deal of it done. Regular school classes are not my concern. It is my 3D animation class.
First day, we get an introduction of the entire school which is a college level kind of school. And it's the usual, dress code, rules, what to do and what not to do. And I made a friend there. A gamer though she really doesn't look like it. She wants to create video games professionally and was super excited to be in the class. And was even more jumpy since she had an energy drink earlier.
Second day, my teacher looks like Rollo from the History channel show, Vikings. media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236…
But not as intense and wearing normal clothes. We got an introduction into the class. My friend from the first day isn't in this class. As a first year student, I get to do more 2D and drawing stuff. And I was like "Imma own this class!"
But then our teacher introduces us to Maya (this 3D program if you don't know) It's so complex, and techy and SOOOOOOOOOO out of my element: pencil and paper. Plus the teacher went really fast with the ABC's and 123's of the program. I was lost and so was the girl next to me. So I doodled on paint and one of the second year students comes up behind me and says "It's interesting that out of all the different programs on the computer, you chose MS Paint." For some reason, that hit me hard when it really shouldn't. It was the only thing I was familiar with. And as artists, we really go into states of depression after stuff like that.
Third day, we get a intro into Photoshop. Many of you on dA us this program. I don't. But it was easier to follow than Maya but I was still stuck in different areas. We were given a image of power lines with a sunset behind them and we had to cover the power lines so there was only sky. And mostly sunset. It was weird. And just when we thought we were getting it, the second year guys came up behind us and started schooling us on that too. But this time they admitted, "Hey, this is harder than what we were given our first year."
It looks like it will be a hard class to learn and cope with. Especially since I don't have friends in there. I need to buddy up with a first year person and then a second year guy. I try to be likable. But this will help me grow as an artist. But eventually, I'll have my moment
Oh! So join my BluBloods contest! Give me something else to think about! blu-blood.deviantart.com/journ…
