Ok, so the title isn't exactly true . Recently i haven't been around dA too much because i started back at uni 2 and a bit weeks ago. The first couple of weeks were a bit rocky, but things seem to have settled now even if my schedule is going a little haywire as a lecturer is away for a week which affects 3 weeks of my timetable.
Anyways, one of my modules is called Intelligent Robotics which as the name suggests is about programming robots to carry out a range of tasks. For this, each team is given a robot (which looks quite a bit like a Henry Hoover) and some kit and left to carry out weekly exercises. Our team's robot is named Amy (each is called after a Big Bang Theory character) and here is a short video of her
So far she doesn't do too much. Her programming means she avoids large objects such as chairs, walls and people whilst trying to explore areas in a room. She's fairly good at this though does occasionally knock past your legs or drive over your foot. She always reminds me of a toddler that you have to chase behind in case they go the wrong direction or get into trouble, hence the baby reference
Emotes + Art
It seems i've come back to emotes a bit recently which seems quite positive. I can't say i have the drive to want to make them constantly, but maybe thats a good thing saying i have a busy year at uni ahead of me. But being able to make them once in a while is a nice place to be in.
I am however still taking a step back from the emote community. I need some time off from being a 'voice in the community' and just aim to enjoy art and dA like i used to a few years ago. To tell the honest truth, i didn't enjoy diving back into the thick of things to add my comments on the recent dArama, but since it sucked me i felt i had to add my thoughts. I guess if anything it proved to me that i'm not ready to come back and should stick with the downtime.
I will however take some time to promote 2 ideas launched from the events last week, so check them out:
`PurpelBlur is hosting a contest encouraging deviants to help give feedback to the emote community and for the emoticonists to improve their emotes based on feedback received. It seems a really cool concept so check it out and really consider submitting one of your emotes for the first round:[link]
`Mirz123 has started up a new group called #Emotizine to help promote community news and events without the stress being placed on a single deviant. Its a great concept and is looking for members and support, so take a look.
