Someone close to me had a stroke, so I asked him these questions:
1. What caused it?
It is not possible to say. Strokes can happen to anyone even babies, young children, and teenagers. Strokes are the result of brain haemorrhages and blood clot, either way they starve of oxygen an area of the brain killing brain cells. Looking after health greatly lessens the chance of stroke.
2. What you felt during a stroke?
When it started I just felt suddenly weak and sick. I felt a bit like that the rest of the day. I don’t know how long the stroke was active but I think it was taking effect through the night. The next morning I felt quite drunk I suppose. I still felt weak and my balance was poor, I was staggering about a bit. I guess by then the stroke had done what it was going to do.
3. How you felt after realising you had a stroke?
I denied it was a stroke. It was confirmed four weeks later. I felt shocked, afraid, and sad when I was told I’d had a stroke.
4. What treatment you had? I was given tablets; to reduce cholesterol, lower my blood pressure, and stop my blood clotting.
5. How you are feeling now? Okay at the moment thanks. Mostly I just get on with things as best I can. I miss some things I can’t do now but I am lucky I have so much and have not lost as much many people who have a stroke lose.
I may have to change the story of two conflicting sisters to suit the the other story about a person suffering a brain stroke.
I decide that I needed to textured my character.
Over the week end I have been doing the task to finish a storyboard, so I can show it today. However that did not happen. Despite that I'll do an animatic for next week, so I'll stay on target!
Now the beginning, middle and end flow. But I do not feel it is very strong yet, the story seem a bit flat and does not stay close to the point, I really need to talk to Leoni about my story!

Here's a line-test animation of the two sisters walking. I am quite happy with it at the moment! Although I'm not sure that I should exaggerated Roberta (the younger sister) walk-cycle. Originally I was going to animate her frame-by-frame, which would be interesting, but that proved difficult, especially in a walk-cycle!
Since we do not have Matt with us for tutorials in our third year. Me and my friends thought it was a good idea to see his view on our films.
Matt seems to be happy with my story and art, he said hew as glad that I have been push this style I've been drawing in, which I wanted to do! 8) Also Matt reckon that should not use colour for the background, because the character designs are strong enough. But I do not think will do it, but I will consider it.
