Where Have I Been?

Hello all. My apologies for the lack of any content all these months. Life is keeping us all busy, especially during these difficult times. I hope and pray all of you are doing well, and whatever difficulties and challenges you are facing, please turn to Christ, as he says:
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. ~ Matthew 11:28-29
As for me and my family, thank God we are doing well. I have been working from home like so many people nowadays. It’s not easy, but thank God for all things.
As far as my Father Gabriel projects are concerned, here is an update:
- Father Gabriel’s Childrens Book – The first draft of the manuscript is finished. I have had a number of people review it for me and I received many wonderful suggestions that I will be implementing in my second draft. I have decided to change some aspects of the story and also will be changing my illustrations from hand-drawn to computer generated. I will be using a 3D software called Blender to create all of the images and illustrations for my book. This is the same software I used to create my Father Gabriel animations. In fact I been spending these months training myself to improve on this software. In the future I will be sharing my progress on my work with Blender so stay tuned!
- Father Gabriel Animation – As I mentioned above, I have been spending these past few months trying to improve on my skills in 3D modeling and animation. At the same time I have been working on a new Father Gabriel 3D model that I will be using in future Father Gabriel animations. The model is somewhat finished but I am still learning so I will keep on improving the model until I feel it’s ready. There is a new episode of Father Gabriel that I am planning called Father Gabriel’s Blessing. I have the story and storyboards finished as of now. God willing I will start production on this late this year or sometime early next year.
Stay tuned, I will be posting my work-in-progress of my Father Gabriel 3D model as well as sample illustrations from my Father Gabriel childrens book.
