Once again I've been away for a while but once again with good reason.  I had a very productive spring semester with life drawing, storyboarding, and animation classes.  I believe this was one of my best and most challenging semesters.  


In Drawing Figures in Context, my life drawing skills were put to the test.  The fastest we were to draw a figure was 30 seconds or a minute.  The most was 2 minutes, some 5 minutes, and in a few cases 10 minutes.  We were also challenged to draw with our opposite hand at one point and I discovered that I am ambidextrous!  I could draw my left hand and it turns out I'm better at getting structures and figures down with my left hand.  It was a fun and challenging class that I'll remember dearly.  My recent submissions are actually from that class!  

I was quite pumped for Storyboarding and found that not only was I good at it, I also enjoyed it a great deal!  It's definitely something I would consider doing for work as well as for personal projects.  Here is my Final Animatic from the class.  Something I would like to make into a short film someday.
 

In my Animation 4 class, the final project required us to work in a group of seven and create a short film based on the story of Jack and the Beanstalk with an underwater twist.  I worked on the team as an animator and voice actor.  I played as the role of the bargeman.  I find that I enjoy voice-acting and would like to do voice-acting for work!  It seems like fun, it's something I can get into, and I've been encouraged by friends, family, and fellow art students that I should give it a shot.  And you know what?  I think I will!  :)

Back to the project, while I did enjoy it I felt there was much I could learn.  There were some communication issues between team members, there was a lot of pressure to finish fast and quickly.  But it is what it is, we finished with a great project, and there is much for me to learn and remember from these experiences.
   

As for right now during the summer, I'm helping with a short film project, getting back to my own personal work, practicing voice-acting so I may create a reel, and rebuilding my portfolio.




Hope everyone is having a great summer, wishing you luck with your art, and wishing you well in life.  Have an awesome summer!

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. :)
