A Note from Stephen

Hey Everyone!

Our Facebook page now has over 200 likes!  Wow!  Very humbling.  Thank you for all the support and faithful following of our little blog.  We have big plans for the future of Mormon Geeks and I'm so thankful Joe approached me and said, "Hey, let's start a blog together" a year or so ago.  It's been an incredible blessing to me and something close to my heart.  Thank you.  Thank you for reading and being a part of this.

I unfortunately have a lot going on right now.  I'm writing and directing a short 8 minute film (which will be lots of fun), designing a small 3D video game, and working on 5 seconds of animation of characters speaking dialogue.  Yeah, I'm a little insane.  Please expect a more fleshed out post next week.  Until then, I share with you some animation sequences I've been working on this semester.  (FAR from perfect.  It's alright for an animation student but my craft continues to improve.)

Here is a run cycle.  I didn't add a tail because they're something I'm still trying to grasp.  I wanted to try something new with this so I did everything rough at first and went over it with cleaner lines.

This splash is far better than the first one I did.  That said, it could use some work with the second part of the splash.  The timing is okay but I feel like it could be broken up a bit more.  Anyway, hope you like it either way.

Much Love,
