that being said, it wasn't too bad. i kept in good spirits (even if i got quieter as the night wore on), the computer generally cooperated in producing the results i was going for, and i had a finished piece around 6 a.m., giving me some time to experiment with some other ideas (they didn't work out.)
i've felt like i've been lagging behind in this class, and while i'm upset with myself for once again rushing to finish it at the last minute, i'm happy with today assignment. this week's work revolved around reflections, the most difficult of which was to produce caustics, the concentrated areas of light when it bounces of a curved and shiny surface.
despite feeling very vulnerable in showing a work that isn't at a point that i would proudly put it on a demo reel, i figure i'll share it here and resist any urge to apologize for its shortcomings. (you can check out my sweet, sweet caustics on the elephant, however.)
