It turns out that yesterdays class was canceled from the start, but they never bothered to tell us. This sucks twice as bad because instead of coming today we have to come in on our day off next week so I am working ALOT this month.

To make things suck even more I totally forgot to turn in my final for last month! I was suppose to come in on my day off and render it out, and it just plain slipped my mind! I got it turned in today, but who knows what kind of grade I will get for it being late.

wanna see it?

I made all the models but not the motion capture, they gave us that part for free.

In the last three months we haven’t been focusing on graphic design at all. In fact we were encouraged to get our texture maps from a Google image search, so I took some time to make some graphics

My favorite part was the soda.

Try delicious Wac~Kola! it tastes like soda!

and I know you can’t see it, but the “hard drive” I made was the holly grail of NES games NWC 1990. I couldn’t find a good enough logo so I made one of those too.

This cart came out pretty good, I think I will use it as an opening to the NWC tournament I plan to run for AFO. Stay tuned for that.

I ended up getting the most praise in a throw away video we made first day. The point of this tutorial was to put together the truck and animate it in some way.

As you can see I didn’t do the normal thing and the instructor noticed that. He said he really liked it because I managed to tell a story with limited resources, and that made me feel better about the whole class, so I’ll take my complement and run with it.
