So, at Avalanche, some days we do exercise/challenge to "warm-up" for 30/40 minutes (Yes, as you do in sports. But more... sedentary). This week one of the exercise was to choose a piece of provided reference and design a character based on that animal. I chose and the barn owl.
P.S. In case you were wondering, I'm loving my internship. I still can't really believe they let me go in and work there everyday.
