Ok. Maybe my plan for the entire semester is a bit crowded with all three of my goals, but here’s my foolproof plan on how to divvy up my time to maximize my focus on each “side-project”.
For my animated short, the more that I thought about it, the more I realized how much work I’d have to put in. When I worked on my first (well, technically second) animatic, I realized the amount of time it takes to just draw AND sync frames with audio. Thus, my mindset for the animation is… low priority. However, I am keen to continue with drawing my classic comics and work on comedic animatic shorts, which works hand in hand with updating my clothing line.
So now we get into what’s going to be new for this semester. The previous goals all worked smoothly together, so I feel like I can take on more responsibilities and such, especially when they don’t require a constant eye on. To create a more professional sense, I’d like to spend probably a week early on in the semester designing my own website (probably with Wix), and with the help of the school, link it to a purchased domain. If not, then I’ll try do it at home during my spare time, which shouldn’t require too much time.
As for the Product Creation club situation, preparations and conversations are needed with multiple people before I can actually apply to kick-start for it next year, so it shouldn’t interfere much with my main animatic goals for this semester. Speaking of animatics, to end this update off, here’s the animatic I spent a collective 7 hours working on:
