My new animation table!

by axl99 in XXX

Today I just bought me a $99 animation table from Curry's, the only one left in the store. It's basically this wooden foldable/portable table with a hole in the middle to put my black animation disk in. The light is from one of my spare IKEA desk lamps.

It's probably a bit of a mindless purchase on my part, but I really can't stand having to kneel at a glass coffee table for an hour LOL.

Earlier on I was with my Dad at a local Chinese mall looking for new cellphones; somehow along the way he forgot to meet up with me when we split to wander around and went straight home. I waited and looked for him for 3 hours carrying this thing on my shoulders before giving up and walking back alone. Helluva 15-20 min exercise I'm tellin' ya -_-;;;,.... Soon as I got back, I was sanding down some of the rough wooden edges by hand since carrying this thing kinda hurt LOL.

I'm working on a new sketch at the moment, and hopefully I'll be done cleaning it up tonight. Mr Tinypants, this one's for you:

    that price is totally worth it considering that light tables here are like.... so expensive! do you always have to prop the table against a light? or does it come with a light already?

      The table already has something to prop itself up with, I can adjust it a little higher or lower as I need it to be. Unfortunately it doesn't come with a light, so I've been using one of my spare desk lamps.
