Yeah, so while I was away, I managed to get my degree in animation. At another user's request, I'm going to show some of my work. My portfolio and website are still a work in progress, and I'm still trying to find a job in the industry. But, in the meantime, this is what I have.

That boxer at the top left of the first video was your previous avatar, if I recall correctly.

Anyway this is pretty neat stuff. How long did it take to make?

@frozen: It was my old avatar. I just remembered that. But, the first animation took me two weeks to do. The second one took me a week or so. The next took a few days. The last one took eight hours.

@static_shock: Great work man! Is the first video a completed work or is it in progress? Either way I know how tedious animation can be, especially 3D.

@yourneighborhoodcomicgeek: The first one is finished video. I think 3D animation is a little easier, though.

You should add some shading to the characters and environment. It makes things look a lot livelier. Other than that everything is great!

I dig the organic vibe of your toning, , muh man. I assume you and I - as well as loving the Bakshi babe such as in Wizards and Hey Good Lookin', also love the Frazetta Girl and groove on bringing her to animated life?

@claymore1998: Wells, I haven't talked about him much, but I know he's a cool guy :P The animations are sick, especially for the time frame they were produced in. I'd love to see what could happen in a month, few months, maybe longer.

@i_like_swords:

Yeah they are pretty cool. I am fairly certain I heard you talking about Static alongside a lot of others in a certain PM. Hehe it seemed everyone has missing him when that happened.

@claymore1998: I'm usually in the shadows in PMs, observing quietly, learning about my new environment. Perhaps I asked too many questions... >.> <.<

@jugjugbanks: I've only seen Wizards, Lord of the Rings, Fire and Ice, and Cool World. I thought his animation style in those movies were pretty good. Fire and Ice is worth noting because that film was mostly rotoscoped.

Oh wow so this is what you've been doing for all these years. Congratulations on getting your animation degree, your videos look pretty good for the timeframe they're produced in Static.

Hey @static_shock cool vids. I got right into 3d Art a while ago when I saw a demo with a zombie being manipulated with these strange globes around its various bones. I downloaded blender right after that because it was free and tried teaching myself to 3d animate. As soon as they upgraded blender to standard industry controls I couldn't figure out how to use it anymore. This was the last thing I made.

I'd really like to do a digital animation course one day, too. It was pretty fun. Good luck getting your career going too.
