Do you have a tradition, habits, or something you really needs to do before taking an important test or job?
maybe like searching for a 4 leaved clover, or maybe hug your parents before going to school?
For me, there are two. First, keeping a secret.
The second things is, making a good luck charm.
I feel bad that I lied to my family and my friends about my participation in a local animation festival.
but, I was so scared to make them disappoint if I failed
I was very tired at the night before the presentation due to the stress,
but I didn't know why, I thought I had to make a good luck charm.
the main character of the animation was a girl, but I didn't have time to make the doll,
so I made the bird (the figurine character) to accompany me during the presentation in front of the jury.
I was really nervous and I had no confidence,
I can't even watch at the other animations, they are so good compared to mine.
I almost run, and went home right after the presentation's done, really,
but maybe it was thanks to the little bird's luck, I stayed.
I got the best character award from the Industry Creative Festival.
thanks, little bird :)
you could watch the animation via deviantart or read the story behind the animation in my portfolio blog
oh, and thanks for the good lucks and the congrats :)
