No, I’m not expecting, nor did I have a kid. Someday, but not today, no.
See, I’ve been doing a lot of freelance as of late, and unfortunately, in that line of work, I often never see the final product. The other issue, is that if you’re working a lot on say Commercials, your name NEVER gets shown on TV really, so I mean it’s cool to see it online, but you have no way to prove someone wrong if they call bullshit.
However, today I found out the game I did some animation on for React! Games has been released. Not only can my resume be updated from “For an upcoming RPG” to “For Helam: A Stripling Warrior Quest”.
If you go to www.helamonline.com you can see a trailer for the game which looks pretty sweet(reminds me of Crash Bandicoot from a look standpoint). Anyway, If you go about 40-45 seconds in, you’ll see a monkey do this jump attack. I did all the animations for the Monkey as well as a Bat character not seen in the trailer.
So I downloaded the demo to check it out and it looks pretty slick. I saw I could go to the credits from the Demo, so I checked it out, and there it was…my name…
Nothing is as satisfying as seeing something like that. I’ve never been more proud(career wise, but maybe all time) than I was when I saw that. Just made my day.
