An Aspiring Animator

So this past Saturday (13th) I started an animation project. The Endless Forest is practically my online home now and I've based my animation off of the deer there. The Endless Forest is a game where you basically do nothing. I'm serious. You're a deer. You can wear masks, get different pelts and antlers, and run around and be a dork or enjoy the peacefulness of the forest itself. There's no talking. You communicate by actions instead and try and make other deer understand you. I'm practically addicted to the thing and there isn't even a point to it! But it's just SO much fun for some reason!

Okay okay okay, back to the animation, I only have 43 seconds animated including a schnazzy intro. The entire animation (including intro and concluding titles) is 5 MINUTES long. It'll probably take me a month to get it completely finished and looking nice. But so far I am just SO PROUD OF MYSELF. Like crazy! I'm so hyper! If you have Windows Media Player, feel free to download/watch my 43 seconds of awesomness.

Also note: I did this entire animation...all in photoshop CS3 and put it together with windows movie maker to add music and make it a .WMV file. For those who did download it, Drache is my deer ;D Yes, he has a skull face. Yes, that is a bowtie. He's such a gentleman (because that's how I created him, lol).

OKAY. I really need to go to bed now.

AAAHHHHH. I'm so proud of myself |D

My memory of CSS is dead...

So I want to redo my blog layout...but I can't seem to get it the way I want for the life of me! It seems my knowledge of CSS, html, yaddah yaddah, is nonexistant. I want it to look like this:

The right side of the book would be the current entry I had written. But just one entry. If it's a relatively long blog and you needed to scroll up, I wouldn't want the text to scroll up into the wood. On the left side of the book would be the "about me," the archive, and search bar. I wouldn't want this to scroll. The archive would basically be the "turn the page" section since the right side would only be one entry.

If anyone would like to have a go at creating this, I would love you forever and ever and ever. Or if you have any tips you will get the same amount of love.

Puhleeeeaaase? *puppy dog eyes*

Almost Done

My room is coming along great! There are just a few things that need to be set up and organized before I can pronounce it finished. I hope to get it up here in the next few days...ish. There are a few high school graduations going on this weekend that I have to attend and that'll keep me occupied...a lot.

Yay for pointless blog fillerrrrs :]
