Woot! Animania! and recent activities!

2009-09-07 10:29:08 by TrooperStomper

I've recently been to the Australian Animania convention, checked out alot of stuff, a couple of new never seen before first time release episodes of anime shows in Australia which was great and basically went around looking at all the cool little collectibles you can't really buy in Australia except though mail-order.

Plus it's a nice place to get cheap Anime DVDs too.

Anyway long story short, Animania was fun, hope you had the chance to go to it last weekend.

On that theme, what would be your favorite anime, reasons for it being your favorite, and have you read the manga it was based on, and what did you think of it's incarnation as animation?

End of the holidays here, and franky, it was boring really.

My mid year break as we call it here in Aus, "Brake" in a vain attempt to sound as un-American as possible, was uneventful at best, the highlights being, went to a very expensive dinner with a lady friend who I spent $15 on to buy her a cocktail which she let me have a bit, to be honest it just tasted like the most expensive baileys flavored milkshake I ever drank, and the overall dinner for $50 ahead was somewhat well in all honesty a waste of money, I ordered ribs, what a waste of time, all it was was bone with little amount of meat, infact I'd get more off a lamb chop for $5, decided to do it because I never had ribs before and now I won't likely have them again any time soon, waste of money that was. The highlight of that expensive night was desert which was very nice surprisingly, note to self, don't bother going to expensive BBQ restaurants.

The other highlight was going to visit my older sister and her boyfriend, went to see the museum of modern art in Sydney at the Rocks. Was a rather interesting an entreating endeavor, a lot of nice compelling and emotional photographs, aswell as some interesting artwork, its interesting what people consider art. I rather enjoyed a perspective silver photo of a cabbage leaf which in the photo it made it look like a silk dress, and a short real of shadows moving across the steps of the sydney opera house, the effect was very interesting and nice.

Well that's the holidays done, onto next semester of absolute annoyance and excusing trivial government funded TAFE courses as actual quality teaching, that's a laugh.

This time I have to do storyboarding, oh god... (I thought I did that already some where before, ah well), anyway as much as I love and loath storyboarding equally it is fundamentally important to all aspects of simply put the production of any media with a plot. And often if the storyboard fails, the plot slips and if the plot slips the story fails. Good storyboarding gives a good representation of the overall feel of a production. Yet I personally find the process of constructing a storyboard as boring as watching something render, and you get those little bursts of excitement from finishing each individual frelling keyshot, one after the other, like when rendering and you see the bar move down once and a dozen more pixels fill the screen and your glazed bloodshot eyes go "yay!", yeah whatever. In a nuttshell, wonderful when finished, the suck to work on.

I recently put up some art which a lot of my real life friends think is fantastic, but people feel the need to constantly scout 3D stills of chess sets, just a heads up to all the people scouting chess sets I thought according to the rules of Newgrounds people are not allowed to put up art'ings that are done using TUTORIALS! Or doesn't anyone read the rules? With so many chess sets all done in 3Ds Max I might add, just thought I'd give a heads up that there is a tutorial in 3Ds Max for chess sets. Also there are people listing 2D art as 3D art, please put your art in the right damn category people, drawn art isn't 3D art, 3D is sculpture be it real or digital.

Just something I needed to get off my chest.

On a better note, I'm uploading my Room Lighting Render today, I was never completely happy with it, mainly because I don't have a complete knowladge of the functionalities of Cinema4D but meh.

Anyway, Irritated that I slept in today and missed the opertunity to go to SuperNova, mainly my fault, ah well there is always next year.


I've returned

Since no one seems to really care of my existence I've not really payed much attention to this profile (mainly since I'm too busy played World of Warcraft or hanging out with my clan in Halo 3). But decided hay I might start posting up stuff on my news page.

well anywho, hmmm what to talk about? Can't think of anything. When I do think of something, I'll post something up.

Hi everyone, I am TrooperStomper, A.k.A Fox Davion.

Long timer lurker, decided hay after 3 years of checking out flash here, and posting every now and then I might try and get involved with the community somewhat.

Oh and for those wondering, yes this account was made in 2005, I made it a long long time ago, long term lurker, finally decided to post deal. lol

Hope to be on more often though but forums and profiles hold me interest very rarely.

Anyway Happy Gaming peeps.
