If you're a Miyazaki fan, you should get "Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind"(Kaze no Tani no Nausicaa,in Japanese). His other works are also worth watching like Porco Rosso(Kurenai no Buta), and Castle in the Sky(Laputa). One of my favorites is Mimi wo Sumaseba(don't know English title). It's not one of his best but it's just that the story takes place in a city of Tokyo where I once live, Seiseki-Sakuragaoka(don't worry if u can't say it). What I don't like is how Disney Packages Hayao's animated movies, the packaging is so damn plain and I feel it's like insulting its creator. If you have the chance to see the Japanese DVD package and contents, you can compare the quality. Btw, they usually go for $40 and is in 8 languages(voice and subtitles)?! jeezuz! And, if you want all of his works, go down to your nearest Chinatown for a box set. The quality is okay and it's only in Japanese with Chinese and English subtitles...you get what you pay for.
Maya 3D class is difficult as usual. Yesterday's class was difficult to the point where one of the students had to show the teacher how to do something.lol. it's very technical to me,
but hopefully it'll make sense soon.
My mech units seem to get more attention than others. I'll start working on another one soon. I usually make really crude sketches and after numerous ideas, i lock on one and start to work on the general shape then detailing. I think coming up with an idea is the hardest part about designing mecha, but it's worthwhile...i think.
