Things have been crazy, crazy busy for the last two weeks. Gosh. Where do I even begin? Well, I guess the beginning would probably be a good place...
So, to kick this off I'll start with Monday last week. All in all, it was a mostly uneventful day filled with homework and other such fun stuff. However, that evening I started up a Theology Study group at my church. It's a year-long study that we're spending going through Wayne Grudem's Systematic Theology. So far it's been a really great experience, and I think I'll learn a lot.
Let's see.... What next? Well, obviously, there are the every day classes which are pretty unremarkable. However, I suddenly found myself with the free time and inspiration to put together the poster for my girlfriend's Jr. Recital. I don't think I've ever had quite so much fun working on graphic design stuff. Here 'tis:
As far as class projects go, I was assigned to create five 'props'. Low poly, scene filler type stuff. The props were split into two sections; three due the first week and two on the second (next Tuesday). I ended up staying up until 3:30 on Monday, to finish my props in time, and then my teacher gave us an extension on it in class the next day. I was kind of frustrated. Oh well. It gave me the opportunity to tweak them a bit and render out some better pics. Now they're ALL ready to go, and pretty spiffy. (Though, as a note, I was assigned to create the fence and trashcan. Those weren't my idea.) Here are some pics:
So, that's a large part of what I've been working on for the last two weeks. Though, as a matter of fact, I've also been assigned to create props for my ZBrush class, so expect to see those up soon. As far as class work goes, that pretty much sums everything up.
School isn't everything though, and I've also been working on a website and logo for a friend of mine (in all the fractional bits of extra time). I'm hoping that I'll be able to get a handle on all my homework and stuff so I have some extra time to do more 'fun' work.
I'm also really looking into how I can break into freelancing and actually earn some money, since my finances are running rather... low. Quite low. So. I really have no idea how I'll be able to do this on top of everything else, but somehow, no doubt, I'll figure it out.
That concludes this week! (And last week). I think I'll have time to post on time next week, so please check back soon.
