The Last Day – TCC30


Let’s talk about today.

Today’s render was created using Element 3d and shape layers. The first part of the render was styled very similarly to the open of my 2013 reel. The next part is supposed to come as a surprise. Transitioning from scene to scene like that can be surprisingly difficult.

The last day.

At long last, I have finally decided to lay the Creative Challenge to rest. It’s been 30 days, and I am relatively pleased with the results. A lot of great work has come out of this challenge, and I have learned a lot about myself in the process. I have learned how to distinguish between quality and poor work, I have learned about the value of experimentation, and most importantly I have learned how to draw inspiration day after day.

Unfortunately, there are too many things I want to do. I simply cannot constrain myself to a tiny project each and every day. I have some grandiose plans, tutorials to make, websites to design, and clients to please. On top of all of that, I will be taking 23 credits next semester, intent on dual majoring in computer science and quantitative finance. I simply cannot do everything all at once, but I will try my darned hardest to do so. Thank you for joining me on this incredible journey, but stay tuned! I have great things planned ahead.
