I still seem to only be motivated to update things here once a month. I guess at least I make an attempt... that it should count for something. I've been doing things. Yes, things, lots of things. I have no idea where to start. The post here has an actual arts and crafts center where you only pay like a buck an hour to utilize one of several different studios plus the cost of materials. I've been learning how to quilt. I learned how to do framing, where I made a god to honest frame from scratch for an 8x10 photo. Today, I'm going to be learning how to wheel throw pottery... which I'm not sure is the correct terminology. Guess that's why I'm going to learn, eh?
I've been up to other things too. Like trying to learn how to properly texture something instead of cheating and using shaders. It's very frustratingly slow. The perfectionist in me has scrapped quite a few beginnings to potential finished products. I've also been working through video tutorials for Carrara and think I might actually have a constructed scene (my first!) rendered shortly. As others I watch have mentioned, I keep running into periodic glitches in the program, so it's just as frustratingly slow. I feel like such a struggling beginner with the program though that it's gut wrenching. I've also been trying to 'clean up' my runtimes so that I can keep better track of where I got certain things, especially those items that are well made for freebies. That's even more painfully slow going.
And I think the only reason I'm doing all of this is because I'm bored. And my cure for boredom is to attempt something useful and avoid housework like the plague.
I did find a job lead though, so wish me luck!
With how busy I can be it's sometimes hard to get on and make suitable comments back. So, this is my way of saying an immediate thank you to those who stop by and take a look around as well as provide me with feedback."It was a high counsel that I once heard given to a young person, 'Always do what you are afraid to do.'" - Ralph Waldo Emerson"The power of imagination makes us infinite." - John Muir
