“We do not stop going to school when we graduate” – Carol Burnett

Well it’s been a long road – but as of today, I have officially handed in and passed all assignments and in 2 weeks will be the proud owner of an Advanced Dip. in Screen and Media. What does this mean? Firstly it means that I technically don’t have to maintain a blog any more. But other then that? Well, that is yet to be seen. I have a meeting with a potential employer nest week and I have very mixed feelings about it.

One on hand – It’s a Job and it’s Industry related, if not exactly working on a feature film – but I still believe that I am simply not good enough yet for that anyway – so that doesn’t really bother me – Of course the job is not guaranteed either. I have it on good authority that if a particular government funding program doesn’t come through then there will be no job for me next year. Which means in 2 weeks, after graduation, I’ll be on a plane heading to NZ where I will reside until I can sort out the rest of my life.

Anyway, after all is said and done, just as this post’s quote implies, the work never stops. So I’m working on a new piece that will hopefully entail a live action compositing and some nice renders and models – gotta keep on keeping on. Here is a Work in progress render of the subject of my upcoming piece entitled “Huntsman”
Huntsman-WIP
Got some cool things on the go: some nice IK on all 8 legs, an Iris rig for some openings that will house the spiders “arms” and I’m thinking of texturing with D-Do, but still pondering that one….

Anyway, my next post will either be very good news about me staying in Melbourne for another year or so, or it will be a farewell post as I head off to live with family so that they can support me as I digress in to a starving artist…. But then again, not really sure what I have in Melbourne to stay for anyway… so time will tell what the better option is.

Peace out,
Tonko
