Adobe is fun!

I spent over an hour and a half playing with Adobe Fuse and Mixamo this morning. :) It’s a super easy 3D and animation platform. A bit simpler and more limited than Daz3D, but so much fun! I really enjoyed the ease of use and figure-outability. And there is a fabulous art group in the UK that makes costumes for it! And their costumes are exactly what I would want to use. I am so grateful. I should play with more Adobe stuff more often! I created a character for use in my artwork, and just for fun, took her through some animations. It was great! I will definitely be using Adobe Fuse again!

Mentors

I would like to say I am extremely grateful for the wonderful people that I am able to learn from in the art community worldwide. I am grateful for Sebastian Michaels and all of the wonderful artists who contribute to his courses. I am grateful for Susan Tuttle and Nicki Fitz-Gerald. I am grateful for Sergio and Dr. Yanina Gomez, who are my answers to learning the business end of being an artist, including the importance of self-care. I am grateful for all of the wonderful people in the online communities associated with these courses and groups, and all of the wonderful artists from around the world that I have connected with through social media. Thank You All.

I am so grateful as well for the tech that allows us to communicate and learn from wherever we are. I feel that I truly am blessed.

Mindset

 I have been really lucky in finding a fabulous group of artists and mentors. Recently I found another mentor to help me with the business end of being an artist. I am so grateful-it’s just what I needed right now. And it literally just appeared one day.

Sometimes I have a hard time with seeing the forest for the trees. I get so caught up in what I want, that I forget all that I already have. It happens in all areas of my life. I think I am getting better about seeing it, though.

It really comes down to mindset. How I choose to perceive the world around me. It is a choice. It’s easy to forget that. My perceptions really do influence how I feel about what’s happening in the world around me. Which effects everything in my life.
