Hello Kelly

Acting for Animator's is a really fun class! It really makes me miss all of my theater possie from high school. On the first day of class, everyone got crazy nicknames to go by! Apparently, I'm "Neon" because of my highlighter sneakers. Ha ha!

Everyone in class had to create their very own character to animate their monologue to. This is my character, Kelly! She likes strawberries and...other stuff. In her monologue, she's sitting at a cafe waiting for her blind date. Only thing is, she thinks he's "Mr. Right" all because her horoscope said "Romance Figures Prominently". (What the crap?! I've never received a fortune like that! DX)

Here's the full model sheet. We also got to work with voice actors from the Drama department. The actor I was partnered with was so adorable! She was really shy because it was her first time in the studio, but she did such a fantastic job! I cannot wait to start animating! It's been three weeks now, and I feel like I'm starting to get rusty! Gah!

Also, I hate computers. For some reason, I always seem to find the glitch that no one else can fix. Right now, I can't work on finishing my 2D Char II final for my portfolio because Toon Boom won't allow me to capture new frames. I tried transferring my files to another program called Flipbook, but that program won't save properly. So now, my only option is to recapture the entire animation in Toon Boom and pray to God it doesn't crash again. (Though it already has repeated this problem three times in the past month.)

I don't like those odds.
