Day 12 – Travel

Today was the first day of the CTN animation expo. The expo was very different from what I had imagined. Today was very chaotic and it didn’t seem as organized as a lot of the other conventions I had attended in the past. Many of the volunteers had little to no idea where things were; which lead to a very interesting guessing game. This made it quite difficult to attend panels and find artists.

The quality of work was absolutely amazing, the range of styles and different mediums was really interesting. I really enjoyed seeing all the different interactions that took place. This was also a great place to attend a load of workshops on a range of topics; which I traditionally would not get to experience. The workshops which I attended today focused on drawing the male and female body, the cinematography of concept art and a conversation about the process of creating Disney’s latest film, ‘Zootopia’. This was a lot of fun and provided a great chance to get a sneak peek at some exclusive content and also gain an insight into how they did this project.

The drawing studio was also a nice touch allowing a great place just to relax and work out the next event to attend. I also really enjoyed how many artists that were there. It was a great chance to see how pieces and characters can be stylized. In the future, if I was to attend this event again; I would spend a month preparing to get a higher quality portfolio and the ability to be a little more confident in my work. I still feel I have only scratched the surface with what I can learn in this area and the expo has taught me that I still have a very long way to go.
