    Haha yeah :3 It's some cool stuff!
    Lighters do just that.. they light the scenes or the characters.. I'll give you a quote I got off a website:

    "Lighters have a broad range of responsibilities, including placing lights, defining light properties, defining how light interacts with different types of materials, the qualities and complexities of the realistic textures involved, how the position and intensity of lights affect mood and believability, as well as color theory and harmony. They are required to establish direct and reflected lighting and shadows for each assigned shot, ensuring that each shot fits within the continuity of a sequence, all the while aiming to fulfill the vision of the Directors, Production Designers, Art Directors and VFX Supervisors."

    The lighter will do all this in the computer. The modeller sculpts the character on the computer. Some studios don't have the budget to hire a separate modeller and lighter, so sometimes it's the modeller's responsibility to light a scene.


    That's pretty much the same thing for games.. except the storyboard stuff is used for cinematics.. and in-game animation NEEDS to look good at every angle.

    @[email protected] Oooh! Where do you work? @[email protected] And nah, I get so tired that I can't concentrate on the music anyways haha.. EYE OF THE TIGER! That's awesome though! Hahaha ;3

    Haha oh man, Napoleon is kinda old.. check out Shogun 2!!
    In games, usually an animator does the movement for the body and face, but sometimes clothing and stuff like hair is added with "dynamics" or code. Depends if it's in-game or cinematics. And yeah.. that's usually part of the pipeline. We get a list and we do whatever is on the checklist. :3 The people who do the shadows are called "Lighters" and lighting and texturing usually go hand in hand, Lighters are usually on the art team or in some studios a modeller (a person who builds or sculpts the character in 3D space) needs to do the lighting and texturing. Sometimes an animator needs to also rig up a character (puts all the bones in that model/3dsculpt) so that it can move. But other studios have their own riggers for complex characters :3

    ;_; BOOO being sick totally sucks.. are you better now though? I still have a bit of a sneeze.. I was sick for a day. Bleh it sucks to be sick ;o; But for new years I just went over a friend's place :3 it was really nice!
    ;_; I wish I could jog.. I suck at jogging and I really don't enjoy it. I wish I did enjoy it, it seems like a really good way to stay fit. Lucckkkyyy :333

    はん (半) gets used in some compounds like 半島 ("half island" a peninsula), but if you mean like you want to say you have half a bag of cookies or something you'd probably use はんぶん (半分). So like this sentence: 人間の半分は女です。 "Half of humanity are women."

    Hey! No worries at all! @[email protected] And yeah I totally get you! Even though it's not across an ocean or anything it's still WAY nerve-wracking like crazy! ;_; Good luck to you though! I am sure you will be fine :3 Invest in a good pair of headphones and earplugs just in case <3

    :33 Oooh I've always wanted to visit Vancouver! That is really awesome *_* <3 Haha and yes the only place I think you'll actually need french for is in Quebec because they like to be snooty like that haha :3

    Yeah I do! Hahaha, well not allowed to be disclosing what I am working on next or anything, but some of the stuff the studio has done is part of the Total War series. Awesome game, you should take a look. But if you want to see what we're up to you can check it on here:

    But yeah :3 Work is pretty fun so far, made some friends so it's not as lonely or anything <3

    How was your New Year's Eve by the way? Has 2012 been treating you well so far?

    I was just looking through my blog and noticed you replied like a month ago. Sorry I didn't see it until now. But you can totally ask me Japanese questions whenever.

    It IS a short distance for me.. because it's totally doable! And nah.. I guess it depends on how much you like you privacy or how you cope with things. I get easily stressed out, and when I stress out I get antsy and irritated easily. I never show it externally, but it affects me internally a lot.. so that's why it was hard for me.

    Ahh awesome! I hope you enjoy it when you come there! What city are you visiting?!

    I graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Arts and Animation. Right now I work as an Animator at Sega. Work is fun because I love what I do!

    :3 Thanks! I don't mind, actually! And I went to London today with a friend for Christmas Eve so it was actually really nice! And same to you! Have a very Happy Christmas <333

    I was on Campus for years 2-4 at school.. but my aunt was really close by and parents were only about 2 hours away so it didn't really feel like I was on my own. I reeally dont like roommates though.. but it's because I like quiet and another person's presence makes me tense when I want to relax. I need my space and sometimes even like.. cracking knuckles or unplugging the microwave really grates on my nerves after a while.

    But yeah.. now I'm truly on my own now that I've graduated. (I'm originally from Canada and moved to the UK only about 2 weeks ago for work.) I love being on my own but I do miss family at times, too. :C Unfortunately this Christmas I will be on my own.. ;o;

    Yeah so far I've only listened to their full LP, We Are Lonely Animals, the one The Weight of Loss is Whole is on; haven't heard Horned and Blind P. 1. There's a lot more strings on the LP, and I agree with you, the dramatic parts aren't too appealing, but they're few and far between.

    Man forgot about your last VM lol. I don't like ****ed Up either, just nothing appealing about their music to me. Still not listened to Wildlife, I haven't been in a post-hardcore mood tbh. I have like 30 albums just sitting on my desktop for whenever I am in the mood to listen to one of them lmao. I don't like moving something to my music folder before I have listened to it.
