my comments for this week.

I bought Microsoft ergonomic keyboard to try to improve some problems with my wrist. It is taking a bit of time to get used to it but I feel much better already, my wrist has stopped cracking when I type. One problem though, it takes so much space that the wacom doesn’t really fit anymore.

The 180 degree turn is much harder than I initially thought despite the *** star warning. I was pleased with my first blocking but Robert pointed at few things to change or improve. While fixing them for the reblock I introduced some new errors and raised few new issues. I am actually glad I am making some mistakes, this is all very beneficial. Sometimes you can be very lucky and nail your animation rightaway but your lack of experience will eventually catch up with you so don’t be shy or ashamed of making mistakes, your mentor is here to help you out.

We have now access to Stu with no arms and Ballie with arms, Ballie looks a bit ugly with his 2 new appendices but he is already very funny to play with and I started to block a run cycle the same day. I am not too sure which assignement I am gonna take. I used to go for the hardest assignement but I really wonder this time, they all seem plenty of fun. Since I never finished my walk cycle last term maybe that I should go for the run cycle this time…
