I am loving Maya. And Animation. And building stuff.

"Film as dream, film as music. No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls."
- Ingrid Bergman, Swedish born American actress, 1915-1982

This is the first playblast of the room I've been working on for the past few weeks. (don't blink or you'll miss it) I'm in the process of modeling some more furniture and finding textures to use on the different surfaces (couch fabric, stairs, carpet, possibly a rug, easel..) I'm also working on a twisty handrail for the second level and stairs and I need to decide where to put the "gallery" Somehow, a teacup found its way onto my coffee table.. I guess I'll let it stay.

The professor of this class (Craig Kovacs) is very awesome and everybody seems to be picking up this modeling stuff fast. I'm just glad I'm finally getting to make things. The night before our first Maya lesson I had a crazy dream where my computer caught on fire and exploded, and all I had done was open the program!

So far, I haven't exploded any computers at SCAD. Praise God.
