So…CTN Animation Expo was a really great experience! I met fellow students, met some graduates, met people from different states and even different countries! It was so cool to see the work of professionals from the industry and artists putting themselves out there in the booths. It was also great to see people reacting to what I had to show. They all seemed to like what they saw and were quite encouraging. I went to workshops and panels that had very helpful information when it came to creating characters, creatures, and portfolios. And other workshops were just fun to go to, like Eric Goldberg's adventures in advertising! And my portfolio was reviewed by Disney! Which was really cool!  

I was critiqued in three different categories: Story, Animation, and Visual Development. For the most part they had good things to say and when it came to criticizing, it was quite helpful and something I ought to remember and look into. They seemed to like my Cuelebre animatic and animations but said that more frames were needed and it needed to be polished up a bit. That there ought to be more movement that indicates their mood. That without sound, people should still be able to visually understand what is going on. Also that the anatomy could be improved in some characters more than others. I was advised to learn CGI, which is indeed something I should do considering a lot of studios are converting to that rather than staying with more traditional methods. For my visual development, I felt they were a little harsher compared to the other critiques but I could see where they were coming from. They wanted to see some works in progress before really getting down to the final designs and felt that the anatomy and shapes in some characters could be improved. So basically, I have a lot of work to do! And I've got to get to it asap! And I had dinner with my professor and classmate! This was a really great weekend and it was a learning experience and I will make sure I take every bit of advice and critique to use so that I may come up with a portfolio worthy of Disney! Or any kind of professional industry. 

OH! And now I have my very own business cards!  A lot of people thought they were cool and I felt so professional despite being a student! :D

Personal Quote: Each of our lives lead a story and each of us has the chance to publish it

Hello, my name is Richard Cardenas Jr. Ever since I was a child I have had a profound love for drawing. As I grew up I developed many stories and characters with a lot of love and dedication put into them so it became my dream to publish my works for the world to see whether they be in the form of graphic novels, comic strips, (animated) shows, or even a feature film. Now I am in the BFA Animation Program at Cal State Long Beach and I am confident that I will make it no matter what career path I choose. Family, friends, and peers have always encouraged me to follow my passion and now that I am part of the DeviantArt community, there are artists from around the world who also encourage me to make my dreams come true. I'm very thankful for the friends I have made here and the people who continue to support me throughout the years.

I support fellow artists here in any way I can. :)
