Default It turns out i still exist...

So i get home today after a week without the internet and lo and behold i remember that simplymaya is a place that exists and a place i have not frequented for quite some time now.

After doing photography for a year now at university i have found myself longing for the days i once spent struggling and straining as i taught myself MAYA (with the help from the good people here mind you) and now that i have a good 5 months of holidays with no job and plenty of free time i find myself yearning to re-live that experience!

And i know Ive said this before but this time i really have no excuse, i am back, wanting to kick start me some 3-Dimensional adventures that i can share with all of you. It may not happen for a week or two but until then i shall attempt to trawl around the forum re-acquainting myself with this world of 3D that i have neglected for too long.

Peace out yall!

Oh geez, welcome back!
Of course, who am I to be welcoming you back? I have been away from this place a lot too.
Still working in Maya, just kind of fell-out when all the old-folks here did; not many of the old crew still come here. It makes me sad.
Rest assured; a few of them are still here!
I need to post more here; helping people and such.

But enough about me,

Welcome back, yo!

Hey I'm always lurking around here somewhere. And it's going alright, trying to get back into the swing of things. I see you came back recently.

Yup, went about 2 years without touching it then about 2 months ago I wanted to make a car for Test Drive Unlimited and got back into it, and somehow when I got back into it I seemed to be much better at it :p
