It’s been a while and I have been trying to keep this active but things need more time and focus and I had to prioritize myself in working efficiently and diligently.
Although I have few things to share I want to give you something cool I came across not long time ago. Maybe this can inspire some of you to look into.
I find these images very intriguing and there is a sense of authentic memory that reside within each and every photograph.

These are some updates of my work. Although I am still working on developing the UVs for my project I have learned so many things and I striving to find better solutions into producing something effective and something that identifies me and my voice.

This week has been a pretty crazy week, but I have built some momentum that I don’t want to loose. I’m starting soon my fish model and hopefully get cracking quickly with modelling, re-topology and developing the proper UVs for my animation.
This is a video that I came across two days ago and it really made me think of how much hard work and truly believing in yourself can actually make you become. This is all that I have been talking about, but I strongly believe that good vibes and positive attitude build up can truly enhance and develop ones internal core to become a better practitioner in this industry.
Keep your head high. Stay authentic to yourself and don’t stop.
Learning from people and understanding that my journey is the same, and it takes time. Being constant and hard working will bare great fruits. I am better than I was yesterday.
Today it was a huge struggle, I found myself in some dilemma and keeping my threshold high can at times, be a trigger for me to actually feel annoyed and at times upset.
Some things that I should keep in mind to move forward, is that all things that are new can be a huge struggle at first, and Rome was not built in a day, but through small steps I can achieve big heights.
To this I will keep you with a small thought for today. I came from nothing and wherever I’m going I don’t know, the challenge that I have in front of me is something that I have to conquer to move forward for my dream.
Off to challenge myself one more time.

Today the weather has failed us from any sun rays. Its been a long and exhausting day. I have worked on the topology and reworked myself again, as I realized that some parts were not working properly and could be problematic when I try to UV unwrap everything on a later stage, another development that I should work on is the 2D element that is part of this animation.
A deeper evaluation and construction of outcome should be undertaken for me to fully acknowledge which parts I should make emphasis on and somewhat develop my look dev for the eventual outcome.
I shall be discussing as well some animation elements that I might be embedding within my work. These are the following inspirations that I am inclined to develop and further enhance my work into.
Although i don’t have any dance involved within the development of my animation, the rhythmic pattern and energy and same element of fluidity is something that I would like to capture within my animation.
Dealing mainly with developing and formulating the first animation model, and working into achieving other assets this week. Together with this the development and getting on hold of music artist that will help me achieve the final outlook and development.
(more sun tomorrow please :))
Hopefully the internet connection won’t fail me this time.
Today I have been working and developing a sequence of test in relation to the development of my character Brice. Trying to keep a clean topology and a well formed structure to the anatomy is somewhat hard, but with some patience and calmness I’m getting there.
Somehow the topology got confused when I combined the two meshes and I could not properly manage it. To this I had to find a way to reface and patch the parts that were not working properly.
I will define and develop my topology and connect all the parts together, and hopefully I will then start developing a proper UV unwrap to start developing my project.
Today is the third day of my production work, and its a long way to go.
I’ve been trying to keep this updated but its hard. Yet, I want to try to revive this platform and share more of my ideas and content. Sometimes I find it hard to get my head around to what I should develop all of this into, but somehow I will never succeed if I will postpone everyday for a better day. So to this I should try to maintain and equilibrium and become more fluid and fluent within the content that I post.
I’ve been still recording my days and somehow I want to share this with you guys. These images although they might seem quilted with some sort of tension, they have been the get away and instance of my constantly busy days, where I took a slide and a moment for myself. Me time. Absorbed by the work, and constant battle of developing creative things I find it hard to make a constant self persistence of myself. I will try.
Here is a sneak pick to the development of my thesis. The narrative as I explained before is about a guy nicknamed Brice, who takes himself into a journey in understanding his purpose and relevance within his quiet and voided world.
Initial design developments that I have undergone, through my post production development.
The concept art that I am eagerly developing. I hope this gives you an idea of what all of this is about and how I will develop and generate my content in.
I will be working on models in the coming week and as well I will kick off with my initial 2d animation development, hopefully keeping you updated more often. I will look forward for this, but for now salute!
I’m so sorry, I have been unable to write these past days. Caught up with all sorts of mayhem but I wanted to leave this for all those in need of some inspiration and good will. ‘Don’t despair!’
I will try to keep you posted this week. But its a tough one for me. Hopefully everything will be fine soon.

An interesting thing I came across today was this. I rekindled my thoughts about my previous work.
Looking back into this I feel reconnected with memories and days that are no longer here.
