Finally, I'm back from my trip!
Now a whole week before my summer quarter for college begins, I can finally finish this project that I have worked many nights on. All I need now is a few more days. However, I did promise a pic before submitting this. This video is made specifically for this website. Ive worked this since April, but now I give you a short taste of what is to come:

This work called The Black Square
was done by a Russian artist named Malevich in the early 20th Century. To be honest, I always think of "Modern Art" as Bad art with a hint of bullshit!.
But he quoted something interesting about this piece that inspired me to create this project. He said:
"The Black Square is the most basic form of art".
Meaning, if you break art down to simplistic shapes, you end up with a square.
For some reason that really pertains well to videogames since a "Pixel is the most basic form of a videogame visual". i mean look at Nintendo games, you're basically looking at a bunch of squares that have been commanded a certain color. And thats exactly what I'm emphasizing in this project.
Even though I don't feeling comfortable of showing a project before submission......What the hell I'm so close to finishing it anyways. One pic won't hurt:

You might question it, but if you pay close attention, you'll see an idea of where I'm going with this. it might not look much, but then again you're only looking at one pic. But you can see the inspiration of malevich's quote. To be honest, this was going to be a simple project when I was developing this, but realized how much potential if I went an extra mile. Which is why it has taken me so long.
I have music synced up finally. Backgrounds are finished. Now it's the final half of the animation.
Even if this isn't shown on any of the podcasts, this was a fun project to work on in general. And I do find this to be artful in some ways. This actually learned to make me patient with long projects like these. Patients baby........Patients.
