I don't know why Jeeves hates me. It took me THREE DAYS to finally nail down a proper base that I was happy with. Here's attempt #1 -
Ummm...is that Jeeves? Or Mr. Miyagi??? No. This will not do. So Day 2...let's try this again.
Really? What is that?! Ok so in my defense, my thought process was...maybe if I make him more cartoon-like??? The answer to that question is a resounding ABSOLUTELY NOT! Jeeves is far too sophisticated for such nonsense.
Day 3. Thoughts of quitting. Ideas of giving up. But there was this fire lit under me now...Jeeves WILL NOT defeat me! I was determined to make this work. After all, my goal here is to eventually have the skills to take commissions for these emotes, and skill takes practice. You know what else skill takes? Failure. Without failure growth doesn't happen. I decided to take a screenshot of the actual Jeeves and blow it up so I could study his features. Bingo.
This project was a lot of work. It took tons of time, blood, sweat, and tears. But I am extremely proud of these emotes. I'm also proud of myself for sticking to it and not giving up. YOU motivate me! When I think of quitting, I literally remember you 12 sweet souls who believe in me enough to support me month after month, failure after failure.
So...again I say, while feeling like it isn't enough, THANK YOU.
