Just taking stock of what I’ve achieved so far and what’s left to accomplish going forward
I got two books that will be brilliant for getting this short done.
I’ve also started to wonder if whether or not to do a little series of animations. Just a thought.
I’m going to get started back to work on Wednesday.
At this point I think I’m going okay with getting the assets made for bringing in to after effects, and I’ve so far been quick to catch on to any oversights (see forgetting Malcolm’s door not being able to open). Hopefully, I can keep this up. I’m going to take a few days break for Christmas though.
I’m using Illustrator to make the assets.
Alec mentioned today that the start-up classes will begin in early January and it would be wise to start thinking of a business plan. I still have my original plan from last year.
I looked up middle America to get inspiration for the design of my town. I’m really trying to set up the town, initially, as picturesque and quiet which is often how the American dream is kind of pitched. “White picket fence…” and all that.

(I did notice this site actually seemed that it might be useful in the future as a way to sell some artwork, it had sections for illustrations and animations amongst a variety of other sections)
