The Bouncing Ball

First Stuff at Animation Mentor

Spring Classes at Animation Mentor Started already and I'm having a blast. We are starting with the basics wich is cool with me because I want to learn everything from the masters. My fellow students are as enthusiastic as I am about Character Animation and the entire community is very supporting. Here are the first thing I have made studying poses:

My Character Animation Year


I Have called this year "my character animation year"!. I decided I was not going to wait any longer to follow my dreams, so as the first step I became a student at Animation Mentor. I'm also going to be active at The 10 Second Club.

I created this blog as a journal to report on this journey I just started, and decided to use English as the language because that is the one I have to use at Animation Mentor. I'm hoping to share this with them too.

My English is not too good so bare with me here.

Let the ride begin.
