One of the greatest achivement for Spain in the international competition was the FIBA World Championship. The team won for the first time in our history the gold medal, leaving behind teams like USA (eliminate by Greece), Serbia, Argentina or Greece. What is the secret for this great achivement. Not only the NBA player Gasol could make this happend. The main reason because this team won the championship is because ALLWAYS wanted more ALLWAYS wasn't enought. When this team had an advantage of 20 point over their rival, they wanted to have 30 points. That's the secret.
Well this has something in common with animation, the main subject in this blog, probably not... but have a lot with wanna be a good animator. Is a lesson of how things are posible, working hard and wanting ALLWAYS more.

Why English?

Some people maybe ask theirshelves why this blog is in English when:
1- It's pretty obvious not is my first language
2- It's pretty obvious I'm far to speak and write English right.

Well I do because is cool... nah just kidding.
Well I need days with 48 hours, yeah I'm a bit busy. One of my objetive is try to improve my English. And this blog was created only for my own amusement so one way I don't feel guilty when I'm spending time in this blog instead of working is because I'm practicing a bit my English.

Weird... I know ;D

The other and not less importat reason is I want to share this blog with as many people I can, I have many friends from other countries and we use english to comunicate each other and I want to use english to comunicate with you too.

Follow the instructions as close as you can

I've been teaching cgi for a while it's a tough job, but many times you get your rewards from your students. If I'll have to give an advice I'll give this "Follow the instructions as close as you can". Why? well First, if you chose to take class with someone you should trust this guy, if you don't trust this guy there is no point in take class with him.
Second, teachers don't have magic bullets, we only have methods and this methods are developed to make you a bit easier the path too follow. Some of the intructions could look meaningless but could make the differece between exit or failure. So is up to you.
One of the better things to be a teacher is that you have a wider perspective. Because a teacher is a student too.
I know is not and easy advice to follow, I forget it sometimes so is a selfremainder for me aswell.

I like rigs

A rig it's the system that make posible to animate a 3d charater ( you can screw the character aswell). The rigs are like the wires in a Stop motion Character, and I really like rigs ( I hate it sometimes too). When I watch a "making of" I really like to see the controls and gui to manipulate a famose character like Scratch (Ice Age). I don't know but maybe is because I feel that the character are only liveless puppet and that only the magic provided by a great animator make the character looks alive and empathyze with you.
To me have the oportunity to manipulate the same controls that top notch animator used to make some of the greatest moments in some movies or shorts is like have the oportunity to be in the copckit of a plane. I'm sure that this probably sounds weird but I think I'm a bit weird :P.
Anyway one of the famous rigs and character in animation is Hogan. This character was created for the AAU students and you can watch great animations from students, most of then working right now in the industry, created with this rig. If you want to know a bit more about this Rig and his history take a look at the great article by P.J. Leffelman in his blog link to the article
