My goal, as not previously written, but often stated out loud, has been to finish the 11SecondClub Challenge in the top 11. My last animation landed in 15th place and it didn’t occur to me, at that time, the significance of that placement.
I had committed to this frog and princess concept early on, but wasn’t sure if I’d animate in 3d or 2d. I didn’t have a rigged 3d frog model, nor had I ever hand-drawn one. So really, the odds were stacked against me and I spent, as is my habit, the first 7 days of the month in pre-production, plus an extra 6 days of procrastination (also habit) just trying to figure it all out.
