Year End Goals?
« on: 14 Nov 2008, 17:08 »

There are 7 weeks left til the end of the year. I propose we have a year end goal challenge, like of like IRON WEEK but for the next 7 weeks.

In the next 7 weeks my goals are:

1. Drop under 200 lbs in weight (currently at ~210)
2. Finish both of my projects at work
3. Find a new place to live
4. Figure out how to propose to the gf

3. Ace all my classes.
4. Learn to not suck at double bass.

1. Get a new job.
2. Get around to getting my X-Men tattoo (this will be a direct result of the new job)
3. Scrape together more spending money for my trip to the US.
4. Hug people who deserve it (So. Easy.)

I was going to say things about getting offered the place in the honours class I applied for for next year but I've submitted my application, there really isn't anything I can do at this point.

Basically this but on my right shoulder (I like symmetry). It's kind of blurry but you get the idea.



Also I'm going to add in 5. Lose some weight or start going for long walks or something.

Once I get finished with all the major assignments (two papers and a 3D modeling assignment, rest should be cake), start actually exercising instead of sitting in front of the computer doing homework.  I used to do 100 sit-ups and 50 pushups 3 days a week, but I haven't found time for two months.  If I can lose 5 pounds by the end of the year, I'll be pleased.  I'll leave the next 20 for New Year's resolutions.

I'm a game design student, so no CAD.  Took a class in high school for that, though.  Nah, we gotta do some form of keyframe animation in 3DS Max.  He hasn't given out the assignment yet, so I don't really know the details.  I don't expect it to be hard, really, just time-consuming.

I watched my buddy do some work with MAYA and it was very difficult to follow. From what I could understand you guys work with creating surface meshes? or wire frames? something like that?  very different from the CAD modeling i do.

Joe's the expert on this board.  Right now we're just working with editable poly's, our teacher warned us against meshes.  It's basically an introductory course, but it's an advanced topic anyways.  It's kind of like CAD, except we strive for efficiency instead of visual accuracy (lower polygon count while not looking too different from the concept art), and there's less of a focus on symmetry.

Can you walk me through how you would model something like a human character that is meant to move like a real person?

Would you start with a stick skeleton with joints that move? and then build mass around it?

I think that's actually what the next assignment is.  I've made a model and I've keyframed a skeleton, but never combined the two.  Also, 3DS Max isn't really a strong animation tool, Maya and SoftImage XSI are better for that.

Our teacher has been lecturing us on it, though.  The newest version of Max lets you create a bipedal skeleton instantly, which you can animate.  What our teacher did was throw together a quick human model, skin it (so you can attach the bones) and attach the bones of the skeleton to the appropriate parts of the model, and then use a walking template to animate it, raising steps and rotating the path it followed.  You can scale the bones to change the amount of influence they have when animating.  He's been modeling for 15 years, so he threw this together in about an hour and a half.  He also showed us a script that generated bones for facial animation (normally you have to handplace each one).

But I don't really know enough about that yet.  There are quite a few tutorials and things floating around the internet, though.

I was thinking about this earlier actually, how coincidental!

I think the two main things I want to do are:

Manage my time better. This is an on-going project and it seems to be looking up. I'm very very busy at the moment, which makes me a lot more focused, and I'm also happy which helps too. I have exams in January so I'm going to revise hard for them and get some time off work to let me  get enough sleep before them.

Stop bursting into tears when customers are rude to me. This happened again today when I asked a boy for ID to buy a 15 computer game (he was not fifteen) and his dad started shouting that it was him who was buying it (not relevant or true) and that it was unacceptable and blah blah blah. My supervisors all say I was doing the right thing and to take no notice but that doesn't seem to make a difference, I just cry anyway.

Other things are like saving up, letting people know how much I appreciate them and being the goddamn best editor ever. And the best film maker. And basically doing everything as well as I possibly can.

2.) Maintain my number 1 academic standing in the class
3.) Either commission or actually create a tattoo design for my right side, ribs to ankle. (I know what I want, but I've never done any artwork that ended up as a tattoo, or on a scale that large)
4.) Consolidate my student loans
5.) Find out a way to let my dream girl know that she is the best of all things, without sounding overly creepy.

We had this conversation before. I have never peed or shat myself to my knowledge, unless I did it as an infant.

I believe the discussion also took in the concept of accidentally following through whilst breaking wind. This is also known as "Sharting" or "Gambling and Losing".
