Hmmm, well I should write some words here from time to time shouldn't I?
I'm off work sick today so I guess this is a good time to put something on here, even if I do have to keep running to the bathroom every two minutes! My last post was a bit miserable. I get miserable from time to time when I'm trying to learn things. It's usually brought on by my laziness. I expect to get better at things without putting in the hours. I need to get on top of my lethargy before it gets on top of me!
A day of illness is a strange time to make a resolution like I'm about to make, but I feel that it needs to be made. I'm going to be more positive. I have come, in recent years, to complain about things a fair bit, whether those things are health problems or annoying things on TV or whatever. I never used to do it, so I'm not sure why I have started. The thing is, it annoys the hell out of me when other people are constantly negative. I feel like their pessimism is infectious. I don't want to pass on that feeling to others, so am going to make an effort to break the chain.
I used to work with someone who was negative about absolutely everything. I think he knows he's like that and so hopefully won't be offended if he reads this! He would complain that he was being worked too hard, but wouldn't say anything to the boss about it. If you said you liked something, he had a tendency to pick holes in it and find everything unlikeable about it.
I watched an episode of Frasier this morning involving a girl who was constantly negative and critical about everything, driving the usually positive psychiatrist round the twist.
Anyway, all this rambling amounts to the fact that I'm going to try to be positive in future because I really thing it will allow a better attitude towards my drawing and allow me to put in some hard work.
At work, my deadline for my first Lego Batman cutscene is tomorrow. I'm hoping my day off won't stop me making it. The whole scene is there now, I'm just in the process of tidying up the animation. I'm looking forward to starting my next scene as I will have more of an idea what I'm doing, although until it comes to putting a scene in the game, I can't be sure that I have got it right with this first one! I can't wait to see what it looks like when rendered by an Xbox or other console.
