I wanted to share this project I’ve been doing periodically over the past several months. There’s no specific outcome except to learn and improve and say I’ve made 100 animations.
Patience. I need so much patience and perseverance. And I’m not necessarily a patient person. You understand how hard that is, right?
Because this is one hectic mix of wanting an end result, enjoying the process, and getting utterly frustrated with the process as well. Animation takes a long time to really get anywhere… all for a few seconds. Understanding and improving is like a turtle running through peanut butter!
If it was easy, everyone would be doing it. Sometimes it feels like everyone is, and they’re doing way better. But I have to remember that I’m looking through a magnifying glass there and am only seeing what I am focused on. It’s easy to lose heart when you feel like your efforts are insignificant.
That’s why you need to look back on how far you’ve come. This compilation is one way for me to do that. I’ll sure be interested to see what happens by the end… heck I’m interested to see what happens in the next 20!
Thought I’d share it in case anyone else could use a pep talk. Also… I need someone to celebrate this milestone with me!
