Also, a huge thanks to James Baxter (http://www.jamesbaxteranimation.com/) who was last monthís Featured Artist. James shared a ton of great information. Check out his interview (http://www.strutyourreel.com/forum/feature/baxter/) if you missed it:
There are some new contests springing up at Strut- animation, character design, etc. A cool mix of exercises. Make sure to check out (http://www.strutyourreel.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1278) what is coming up.
Thanks to Ed Hooks (http://www.edhooks.com/) for hosting his monthly Acting for Animators (http://www.strutyourreel.com/forum/index.php?c=10) session on Strut. Due to a family tragedy, Ed is on hiatus but we hope to have him back soon to offer his excellent acting tips for Strut members. Get well Ed!!
Lastly, congratulations to Christin Marineau, who won Strutís first ever Character Design Contest (http://www.strutyourreel.com/vote/). Her winning design will be made into a 3D character for the Strut members to use for their own animations. Thanks to all the participants who made it an awesome contest!!
So hurry up and swing by Strut!!
