FishBoy Anim Test: Beta

FishBoy is in Motion!

I am just a few steps away from releasing FishBoy to you all and I have to be honest, I am pretty excited! This is the first test I have done with him to see how things work and so far so good. 

As for the release of FishBoy to you, I have to file a bit more paperwork and get him up online and he will be in the hands of the internet! As for the other half of this project, Kiva continues to be in motion and doing awesome stuff around the world. 

Check this out!

"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Give a man a donkey and you feed him for at least five years, providing the donkey is well treated and doesn’t get sick.

At the Gambia Horse and Donkey Trust (“GHDT” or the “Trust”) this proverb has been turned into a reality and what started as a compassionate intervention to save a suffering horse has grown into a fascinating project combining animal welfare and poverty alleviation.

Located in the small village of Sambel Kunda in the heart of the Gambia, the GHDT was founded in 2002 by sisters Stella Marsden and Heather Armstrong, both at that time long-term residents of the Gambia. It was in 2002 that Stella first met and rescued Lazarus from among the local villages and bought him to live with her near her chimpanzee rehabilitation project in the Central River section of the Gambia.

Coming soon: The Fish Boy Project

Fish Boy, an original Andrew Conroy character rig, is about to be released as a FREE rig to the general public! 

 The goal is jobs and Fish Boy is ready to help! A lot of people want to get jobs at film studios and commercial houses but need something fun and fresh for their reel. Other folks want to start small businesses and need a little cash to make that happen.

 Well, Fish Boy is gonna help both!

 In a few short weeks Fish Boy will be released from this site as a free download and for those downloading this rig I ask that you consider giving to Fish Boy's Kiva account. (What is Kiva? It's an awesome non-profit with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world. Read more about Kiva here.)

 For some of us, working is about finding happiness and for some it's just about feeding your family. If in a couple weeks you find yourself in the first catagory, consider helping out the second.

Love, Andy and Fish Boy
