I managed to wake up at 6 AM for the past few days.
From where I live, you won't see the sun rise from the horizon. But nevertheless, the habit of getting up early will be beneficial for when I have another job.
No new ideas for Source Filmmaker posters at the moment- within my skill level at least; I'm trying to finish up some months-old posters I left undone, also an animation clip emulating a scene from the Danny Boyle film, Trainspotting. It's going to push me to the limits considering how complex the animation will be to match that of the film scenes. Truth to be told, I do have plenty of ideas, but not the skills to make up for what I want to create; I would need to learn how to model props in 3D programs like Blender or Wings 3D. I also have a problem with the texturing: the models have a pink/black checkerboard pattern that occurs whenever I try to load the item in Source Filmmaker. I've read many tutorials on how to deal with the texture issue, but none of them worked so far, even after I place the files in the right folders according to the tutorials. Maybe something's wrong with the UVmapping in Blender? I dunno. I won't give up. I won't let my ideas slip away or be 'stolen' by other artists.
Right now, I'm working hard at polishing up my PHP coding skills, which, I hope, will come in handy to find a job in the IT/Web industry.
