Hi guys, sorry it has been so long since I posted anything, but I’ve been going through a lot of major changes in my life. Most exciting of which is starting a degree at Qantm College in Sydney. It is a Bachelor of Interactive Entertainment in Games Design! They also do Animation, Programing, Graphic Design etc. (Audio and Film across the road at sister college SAE), so if you have ever been interested I recommend you check out the site at least. I made a 3D hand today, in 30mins, second lesson… (it wasn’t very good though, lol). But yes, big changes have held me back from really having anything to post. I, also, will be studying hard til December (so many new applications to learn to use), so my posts will remain limited in this time, but if I have anything interesting or that I am proud of, you guys will be the first to know
