Weekly Review: 17th March 2014

Posted by on Mar 24, 2014 in Blog, The Quest, Uncategorized | No Comments

So last week’s work was dominated by head studies. It was really nice to see forward progress on that single topic. So I think I’m going to theme weeks, so I can get in to the groove better, and make sure different subject areas get enough study. So week two is environments / props.

I didn’t manage to get the full 25 hours done this week, an unproductive weekend cut it down to twenty. So next week I’ll try for 25 hours again. Next week is also the last week of CGMA courses, so I think I’m going to be moving over to traditional media primarily. I’m very conflicted over this – most people online are working digitally, but I really enjoy working traditionally. I think it’ll overall be best if I work on what I like the most. From Greg Manchess’ various interviews and muddy colors posts it seems that is definitely what he recommends. And who am I to argue with that?

Hourly breakdown:

  1. Environment design studies
