"Your Commie has no regard for human life, not even of his own. For this reason men, I want to impress upon you the need for extreme watchfulness. The enemy may come individually, or in strength. He may even appear in the form of our own troops. But however we must stop him. We must not allow him to gain entrance to this base. Now, I'm going to give you THREE SIMPLE rules: First, trust NO one, whatever his uniform or rank, unless he is known to you personally; Second, anyone or anything that approaches within 200 yards of the perimeter is to be FIRED UPON; Third, if in doubt, shoot first then ask questions later. I would sooner accept a few casualties through accidents rather losing the entire base and its personnel through carelessness. Any variation of these rules must come from me personally. Any variation on these rules must come from me personally. Now, men, in conclusion, I would like to say that, in the two years it has been my privilege to be your commanding officer, I have always expected the best from you, and you have never given me anything less than that. Today, the nation is counting on us. We're not going to let them down. Good luck to you all. " - General Jack D. Ripper.
So I am at my apartment with two great roommates who I have never met before until now. I went to my Orientation. There I felt that my college life has started (my college is Full Sail in Winter Park Florida) so I went with my roommate for the Orientation and we went in a room with a bunch of people that where going in to Game Art (my program) and Computer Animation. So our Dean walks in and shows us some past projects that some students made 6 months ago. The stuff that they have done looked good and some really amazing. After the reel he said that everything we saw (like all the good stuff) is all out of date. And he looks at all of us and looked me in the eye briefly and said "why do you want to do this work and why did you come to college here. So in my mind im thinking im here because I want to be the best and be innovative for the future games that I could be making.
So he gave us homework even though we had not started real classes. So first thing we need to do is Watch Movies, T.V shows and play video games. And we need to do realistic drawings for at least one hour a day. Make our own website while in college. Out dean for our program is an intense man but he is also a funny person. But he said that we would be working a lot once in the gaming world. So we leave that room and go in to another room. And then we got a lecture about our responsibilities at the school and it just covered everything we needed to know even all the boring stuff.
So the next day on the 29th which is today I got my Mac Book Pro and we set it up to our schools network got logged on to our schools website profile and all that good stuff. But yeah that's all I can think of to update everyone on. But I do highly recommend this school if you want to go in to gaming or Digital Art, Graphic design, or Digital Media Full Sail is an awesome school and I have fallen in love with it. But I thank Newgrounds for pushing me to do something better with my life.
I guess I will post my first blog here on newgrounds. I have been coming here on new grounds since 1999 never made an account until 2007. But through out my years of coming to new grounds I liked seeing what people where doing to express things by using flash and art. So I self taught myself to do perspective 3 or 4 years ago. But in 2007 I started to post my artwork on the art forums not looking at my work with great confidence. But I started to get great reviews from the people looking at my work. And I started to draw more and build my self up the confidence to do great things. So as time went I just started to work more and kind of stopped drawing because my work is getting in the way.
But in February I went to visit a college in Florida called Full Sail. And it was an amazing experience for me. I talked to students there and showed them my artwork and they said I really needed to go in to game art ( I was going to go in to Digital Arts and Design) so I talked to the Rep. there and he thought I should Defiantly go in to game arts also. So for 1 and a half months I worked hard to get all my paper work in. and then I got accepted and got all my loans.
But I realized that I wouldn't be here if it where for all the people who thought I made good artwork, I know its not the best out there but you guys supported me all the way. To me that means a lot to me. Because if where not for all of you I wouldn't have done this. And I want to thank Tom for existing and making newgrounds and MindChamber for his support in my art and my future education. And all of the Newgrounds staff and crew that make new grounds flow flawlessly.
This is where my life begins and for now on I will update newgrounds of my progress in school and help the new grounds community as much as I can. I hope my story inspires others to do great in your life because we have a lot of time on this earth but a lot of us choose not to do the greatest things.. But go out there and do something great because if you succeed to your eyes then you never failed. I thank anyone who had read my first blog and I hope they will read the future ones that I put out. Thanks a lot everyone
