My six-week run at the DAVE School is over. The folks there were very helpful. William Vaughan is about as nice a guy as you'll ever meet. The staff and faculty there (those that I met and worked with, anyway) are all very cool, caring people. But in the end, I just felt the program wasn't the right fit for me and my situation. The one upside from it, however, is now that I'm done with Maya I can get back to Lightwave. When I get back home and resettled in there, I'll be posting back to the Lightwave WIP forum again. I haven't given up on 3D just because I'm not in school anymore. Looking forward to reconnecting here again.
