major project research

FMP - Animation research

Gankutsuou - The Count Monte Cristo

I stumbled upon this GIF quite recently, and I was reminded of how beautiful the animation for Gankutsuou anime is.

The first thing that really catches my eye is the use of different patterns on the character’s clothing and hair to create the appearance of texture. I really like this, as the colours are more vibrant and the characters are more exciting to look at.


As some of you may know, I am a senior Biochemistry major, and the research project I have been working on for the past two years has been accepted for presentation at the National American Chemical Society Conference in March. This conference is in San Diego, California, and I now have to figure out how to afford a plane ticket, hotel costs, and other expenses that come with traveling across the country. It’s looking to be about a one-thousand dollar trip.

To help cover costs, my research group is selling Yankee Candles. If you are at all interested in helping me get to San Diego or if you just want some new candles, please contact me via ask box or the messaging feature, and I can send you the link to the website. It’s all online, and can ship virtually anywhere. If you can’t buy anything, I would appreciate if you would help signal boost this!

Thanks so much!
