    HEY! Sorry I laid down for a little because I had a headache tonight (damn watching the Hobbit in 3D made me have eye strain.. waahh!)
    I actually went to school in Canada (I'm Canadian but moved to the UK after I graduted,) but GCSE's are qualifications you get in UK colleges or secondary school.)

    I actually went to uni for 4 years and predominantly learned traditional 2D animation. With animation, the actual animation skill needs to be sharpened.. so.. acting, weight, balance, timing, spacing, etc are very important. I was taught a semester of very basic 3D animation, but I mainly practiced and learned it myself. Knowing to draw does help in 3D.. but if your animation skills are there, it's not absolutely necessary.. but for 2d it's obviously necessary.

    To be an animator you need to put together a very strong animation portfolio/ demo reel. Having some 2D work may still land you a job in 3D if the reel is good and shows thorough understanding of animation principles. So that means.. even if you're good at design, it doesn't mean you'll be equally strong in animation. Animation is its own skillset.

    Do you have any work online that you can show or that you've done? A good first step is getting feedback.. joining the 11 second club is a good idea if you'd like critique and want to get better. Check it out :3

    also just a question, what GCSE's and what not do you need to become a animator?

    Sorry I don't have either of those mostly through prefrence and having issues with them so I shut my accounts down. That's such a cool job to have! Unfortunately for me I don't have as much animation experience as I wish right, my school is a languge school so focus' mainly on that, making the I.T departmeant underfunded. The best I've had so far is a few weeks of 2D animator programs and some 3D cartoon designs. It sounds ok but its literally to the absolute minimum of what they could try to teach us. Luckily next year I do my options meaning I can take animation as a subject itself instead of bits and pieces in I.T.C

    Hi Kura! Id love to have you as a mentor, thanks! animation is my future dream job, either in video games or film. The times should be ok I finish school at around 3:30 but I get home at 4ish and like you I tend to be on the internet late into the night after I get home. Nice to meet you to

So, I sorta missed out on the deadline with the whole.. successes and failures blog competition thing, but I wanted to post something anyway since it's a subject that spoke out to me recently.

Sometimes, success can be a real matter of perspective, and sometimes, it's not always visible. We, as onlookers can point to others and assume that "this person is succeeding" and "this person hasn't really gotten that far" when we really don't know their whole story. We...

Hey! How has everyone been??
I know I haven't been the most active person these past couple of months, but hopefully I'll start getting back into the swing of things now that I've started to find a bit of balance in my day to day!
I see loads of new faces, though I'm unsure how many are name-changes and how many are newbies, so you might have to help me out here!

Anyway, hmm in case you're wondering what I've been up to:

In ways, I feel quite a lot older this time of year- and thinking back, I realize how living on my own has changed me a lot, and even when I think I am mature, I look back again and see how much I mature further.

That being said, I realize that this Christmas, what I really want is the comforting feeling of friends and family around- and just being happy to be there in their presence. Now, this Christmas, I am away from my parents and brother and other family (it's too expensive to...
