Extended Major Project

I'll concentrate on updating my Extended Major Project blog right now, I reckon.  So much to do!!!

I may upload things I see every now and again - after all, "Things Eyesore" is the name of the blog after all~!

Today, I R Been Mostly . . .

. . . Wondering what to do for my EMP at college.  I'll need to make a separate blog to act as the learning log for it, but I've really got to think what I want to actually do for my final project at university.  The last one I did (Lyne's Journey) was interesting, sure, but it was really hard to make a decent story for it, as well as think about a child audience, and it started to get a bit chore-like.

Me thinks I need to forget about the child audience, I don't think I want to anchor myself to that just now.  I enjoyed the playfulness of the images I produced, but just because they're fun and make you feel good doesn't mean I absolutely need to make them for kids.  I need to concentrate on what I want to make, and what about, first.

I had an assessment for my last project yesterday, and they reckon I could find an alternative scientific-type theory to base my next project on.  Perhaps, but if I do that I'll most likely take it in an entirely different direction.  They also suggested that my last project would have worked well as an animation, and I'll keep in mind the posibility for including animation in my EMP, since I enjoy making them even if I haven't had that much experience at it yet.

But, what to do . . .

Oh, by the way - here's a snowman blob I made when it was snowing loads over the Exmas holidays:

It was going to be a snow man, then a snow penis, but it began to get really cold out so I just put an evil face on it.

I think it's the weather.  It's always the weather.  Anyway, I have been busy making my website!  It's not live yet, I need to sort out the webspace for it, but it's practically ready to go.  I'll not post a picture of it just yet, I need to remember how to post pictures on Blogspot before I do that . . .

There we go!  There it is!  I did it all more or less yesterday, but based on previous experiments I did before Exmas so I didn't have to spend as long figuring out how to make things work (seeing as I'm not a web designer).  It still took me a while to get the preview images to show the big picture on the right when you click on them, though.  But that's what Google is for.  I didn't use any templates or anyfink, it's all entirely my own.

Hopefully I'll get the thing going live soon.

Welcome back!

Yes, after a hiatus of . . . nearly 5 years . . . I decided to create a blog for meself and me work, only to discover I already had not just one, but two blogs I completely forgot about. That doesn't say much about me, now, does it?

To be fair, I did create this one when I was in school, and what with all the whatnot I've been doing since then it's not surprising I forgot about its existence. And the other one . . . is a complete mystery! I don't even remember making it.

ANYWAY, let's pretend like I just made this blog just now, and start afresh.

How do you do? :-) My name is Andria, but I've been nicknamed several things over the years, including 'ndria, Angia, Ang, Annoree, Andweena and even André for some reason.

I hope not to abandon this time :P
