Louisetheanimator's News

So this week I went away from my home to spend time with my grandma and had a fab time although her internet is terrible and I couldn't do my stuff properly which is why I didn't upload anything recently. Anyway I went to Nidderdale Llamas to walk a llama called Aztec who was so well behaved on the trekking and the staff were very good with me and my visual impairment so with that I was very happy. I also learned that they breed these sheep that can digest bracken! I always thought bracken couldn't be eaten because it gave you cancer which was why it over populates but apparently these sheep have no such problem. How surprising! Then me and my grandma went to town the next day and got my grandads watch fixed at the Goldsmith then came home and had fish for dinner. Now I'm on my way home and will give a warm welcome to my mum and tell her all about my time with my favorite grandma. I'm glad I only spend a few nights at my grandmas because as I said her internet is c**p and it makes me feel better about my internet at home. Well that's all for now, bye.

So recently I've been painting some mythical creatures like thunderbirds, werewolves and giant spiders for my part at the Feel the Force Day convention and each time I do a painting of those things then I ask for feedback from my parents to improve them which really helps to make it better just like I did at university. ^^ Now I'm packing my stuff for when I go to my grandma's house to tomorrow which I'm really excited about as we'll be going llama treking, buying snacks and having fun as I love doing those types of things. Now I'm just relaxing and thinking for my next mythical creature to paint for my stand at Feel the Force Day and I know it's only a couple of months away until that happens so I'm excited. Anyway that's all for now see you guys later.

Sorry for the wait

Hello everyone since so much has happened in the last few days I haven’t had time to write a blog about what’s been happening so here’s the news: I’ve recently been to London Zoo with my dad and had a fun time in eating a big lunch and some ice cream (I had triple chocolate flavor). We made sure we saw everything at the zoo and I bought myself a fridge magnet from the gift shop. When we came back we had a small dinner and relaxed for the rest of the day. Of course I remember a terrifying dream about the Simpsons Treehouse of Horror where Homer was part of Mr Burns’s experiment by putting him into a cyborg robot and he was being pushed through a pipe and crushed all the way through with blood on him and bones poking out (That nightmare is going to haunt me for a while). Mum then said after that that me and dad can go to Sunderland for one night to see a football game along with the sights and Endinburgh where we can spend two nights there and go to the zoo and see nice things too. Wow! I love this time we spend together. Also I’m going llama treking with my grandma next week where I’ll be going on a long walk for 2 hours which I look forward to. ^^ Anyway that’s all for now. Bye for now.

I've been into Blender

2017-07-09 11:15:15 by Louisetheanimator

So recently I've been getting rid of my Maya software (computer animation software) after I tried to export my sequences that I did with my university but found I couldn't stop the rendered images looking too dark so gave up and decided to download Blender instead which is a free CGI software that can do tons of stuff too. It's actually very handy as I can learn a CGI software even after my university course which is why it makes sense to delete Maya as I'm no longer a student there anymore. When I've learned a few things on it I'm hoping to create a sequence with 2D characters from Adobe Flash and do any object that might be too hard to draw frame by frame in Blender which ought to be fun. I'm just hoping I can do that. I also bought a lazyarm (a stand attached to my desk that holds my phone from above) to support my phone when I do timelapses so when you see them now and they look different it's because of my lazyarm that I now have. I'm having some difficulties with Blender but it's all a working progress of learning and I'll get the hang of it with a little practice. In the near future you'll see my finished things I've made using Blender and I'm sure you guys'll be well impressed with them. ^^ So bye for now then until next time.

So I got up and had breakfast and then got ready with my mum to see the movie I’ve been looking forward to seeing all year: Despicable Me 3! I’ve loved every bit of it as I find the minions so funny in the film series. When me and mum watched it and came home we had some popcorn left over which we saved for another time. After that I had some snacks and coffee but because I was ill I had to rest until tea time I had hot dogs which were nice. What made me happy today was leveling up on Newgrounds with ranking which means you can decide by rating a film or game if they should stay on the site or not and depending on how many are rejected or get to stay there gives the enough points to get to the next ranking level I’m on level 1 town watch at the moment. Yipee! Also I’m close to recieving 600 subscribers. So if you like my animations and art you can help me reach my 600 subs by hitting the subscribe button there and you’ll see my new videos there every Thursday at 3:00pm. Here’s the link https://www.youtube.com/user/79Loui... you guys must let me know if you subscribe because that would really help me. It would be much appreciated if you guys could do that for me. Anyway I’ve been into painting cars at the moment as well as other things like fantasy, prehistory, fan art, animals and landscapes which is weird as that never interested me before. *shrugs* So that’s all I can tell for now I’ll keep you guys posted for any other news. Bye for now.

I've been graded!

2017-07-05 17:01:58 by Louisetheanimator

I had a lie in this morning got up late and I was shaking in my boots as I knew I was going to be graded for my third year at my university. I felt like this was going to decide me future. *shaking with fear* When my mum went to her therapist I watched Friends in the living room and my dad came back from hospital after they checked his broken finger then at 12:00pm my grades came through and...I passed everything! WOOHOO!!! even the dissertation didn't fail and that's my weak point! not bad for someone who's education wasn't like the average person. Anyway after that I had spaghetti hoops and sausages and watched Once Upon a Time with mum (we're beginning the 3rd season now) and it's getting good so far. When I found mum was doing her nails instead of walking the dog with me I decided to go to my room and paint a fierce car which came out really well! I recorded the process so you guys can see it soon and tell me what you think. After that I had tea and relaxed for a while then chatted to my grandma on the phone and told her about my grade and she was happy for me. That's all I can tell for now but still it was a great day. Bye for now.

My day gone good.

When I woke up it was already close to 8:30am so I got up and discovered my old cat Eevee had been sick again so I cleared that up before I went to have breakfast and everything when I did that I watched Friends in the living room while my mum went to the dentist when she came back I went back to bed until mum told me she was going out to dinner with dad, who recently broke his finger at football. I watched Friends in the free living room for a while as I was doing my computer updates and eating my snacks then my parents came home and I went out with mum to post a book we sold and we went to the place where mum had treatment for her poorly feet. When we came home I cooked myself some makerels for my dinner with mash potato (which made the house sink of fish!) then I went to my room to do more updates and I'm planning to relax for the rest of the evening. Well I can't think of any more to say so bye for now.

Problem solved!

2017-07-03 11:52:08 by Louisetheanimator

I went to see my therapist this morning to talk about my thoughts then she said it's because I don't want to be a bad person like the ones I'm thinking of in my mind and it allows me to know that I'm not like them. So that really helped as the way I feel about those thoughts is what makes me me and it makes me feel loads better about it. After that I went to town to pick up a BBQ chicken wrap and free soup which was delicious. ^^ When I came home I went for a nice walk with my mum and her dog Lily and I told her what my therapist said about our talk. When we walked back we watched a bit of Once upon a time then. When we came back I had some snacks and went to my room while my mum took a phone call and did some updates. Now I'm cooking roast dinner for myself and I'll try to crack on with some jobs to do now. Well that's it for now. Bye then.

I'm on my way

2017-07-02 15:51:03 by Louisetheanimator

Today I was a lot more happier today because as each day passes I get more happy which is a good sign after what I've been though this week. I decided the best way to stay awake instead of resting in bed today was to drink lots of water which worked I'm glad to say. Me and mum, while I was having breakfast, watched a facinating documentry about Temple Grandin on BBC iTV and I learned lots about how she interacts with her animals especially cattle. She has what you call a squeeze box that calms you by squeezing you when you're stressed. I have a similar technique with my cat Eevee because when I stroke her it lowers my blood preasure and calms me down too. It really helps people like me who suffer from autism thank goodness. After that I went out with mum to M&S to buy and look at some nice looking clothes then we went to Hobbycraft where I bought some acrylic paper for when I paint. When we came home I had my left-over pizza which was tasty, then me and mum watched another episode of Once Upon a Time again which is getting very interesting now. I now know there's a Once Upon a Time in Wonderland which I'm really excited about watching when me and mum have the time. Now I've got to paint some fantasy creatures for Feel the Force Day in September and I have to add a lot of detail to those artworks. I'll be seeing my therapist tomorrow and talk to her about how I'm feeling about my bad thoughts so that should help at least. Well that's all I can tell for now. Later then.

A bit happier today

2017-07-01 17:43:44 by Louisetheanimator

I started the day trying to be happy with what’s going on in my head while I finally painted the working bench for my animation set then I went to M&S with my mum to shop for some clothes. After that we came back and I had a little kip then got up and made my pizza dough at 3:00pm while me and mum watched Once Upon a Time then I saved the rest of my pizza for tomorrow’s lunch. I managed to download Maya (a CGI animation software) and use it but I couldn’t save the things I created in it as a PSD (Photoshop file) file of it to put onto After Effects because everytime I tried Photoshop crashed forcing me to close it. I’ll keep trying but for now with my skills I’m going to make a list of things I can do with animation and things I’m not so good at so I can show it at Feel the Force Day in September soon. So I’ll try the animation skills I plan to learn from the tutorials on Youtube that can help me. Well that’s all for now. Bye.
