Today I feel like updating several of my 'profiles' around the web. The year is coming to an end, and as you know, one gets some shit done at such occasion. First, let me do a quick recap of what was going on.
As my June post informed you, I returned from the Student Exchange, at the beginning of February. Then, I joined a Star Wars Project, which was a hardcore team experience, we produced quite a nice bunch of artwork of all kinds. Then, I did a 'tiny bit almost of an internship' at a company called InVida, where I didn't really work for them (much), but I was working on my own projects and in case I'd need help, I could ask them for a tip or two. Well, in the end, they only had one 3D generalist (really good, though) and I found Sculptris and violently used it for my artwork. However, a student year quickly turned and I couldn't afford to stay in Ljubljana anymore...
....for a week. At the end of the week I got a call and a company needed a 3D visualisation of some molecules. They also gave me some more work, and I worked there for a month. That is, because when the work became less and less fun, I made a call to another company if they need 3D artists and they said "yup, come tomorrow for an interview". The next week I was already modeling a deep sea fish. In other words: The stars aligned and it rocks.
So, the reason I didn't post much interesting stuff in the last year or so is, that a) I never finished it (like the high poly Nautlius and Fizz I worked on during the summer), b) I'm not entitled to post it (like the Star Wars stuff, but I'll ask for permission). And I have almost no time to make my own work; if I do, it's highly conceptual stuff or isn't a 2D/3D artwork at all.
Admittedly, I kind of feel urge to produce more artwork for myself, to show what I want to work on, not only what I'm asked to do.
I work on my graduation project, which kind of shifted in the last two years (more experience means knowing my limits); but most abruptly in the last month. I didn't even inform my mentor about it (note to self). That means, besides my 'daily job', I also work on this... a paper (Character Design), and I have to make a film. Then, I also work on another project with a few of my friends, but it's the "that tiny bit of spare time we have left" project.
Maybe I work too much. I also make sure to hang out with my friends, but lately I'm feeling the lack of holidays for me. I didn't have a decent time off for probably more than half of a year. If I'm not working on one project, I'm working on another one; only now and then I take my time to play a game with friends and that's about it. It's still fun, though. I have a feeling I became addicted to (apparently) that there's always something going on. My mom just warned me that I better not keep that up or it's gonna leave permanent damage on me and I'm afraid she's right. Gotta clear the shit up.
