Class 3 Over, a Sad GoodbyeI have decided not to continue into Class 4 of Animation Mentor. Having a full time job and adding on the extra 25 hours a week in homework time was just too much for me. I really want to devote myself to the professional opportunity I have right now, I may never get another chance like this and don't want to mess it up by having a split focus. I wouldn't feel right doing either halfway, it's all or nothing with me.
I am going to miss the great supportive community of Animation Mentor. They have truly created a special community for us as artists, a place where we can experiment and grow all while learning from and helping each other. I know for a fact I would never have improved without all the feedback from the amazing classmates whose critiquing skills have improved tenfold since the beginning of AM. Knowing that at any time of day, some student, somewhere will be online, and able to give you that mid week critique when you need it most. I am so going to miss the ability to cruise through the campus and take a peak at how each student is progressing, being able to look at their assignments and leave them feedback has been such a amazing thing for me to experience. I hope they will keep up with their blogs so I can still be a part of AM.
Good luck all my friends and class mates in Class 4 and beyond. I will miss you!
