This was copied from the old thread that Hot Rod made, and modified a bit and modified again. This system works better than the newest where you request a mentor in that thread (Seeing as no experienced animators really pay much attention to it), so this has been brought back.
What could be better than an experienced animator that helps you develop your skills in Pivot further?
This thread helps you get someone which can do this. Below is a list of Mentors that are accepting Students.
If your desired mentor is not available, either wait until they are or choose somebody else, this is done out of generosity of those who choose to be mentors, it is not a privilege.
What's happening here exactly?
This thread gives aspiring pivot animators the opportunity to learn from people who can pass on skills and experiences about Pivot which will further improve the quality of their own animations.
How do I apply?
People wishing to become mentors must fill out the form below and OP will edit the main post. If you are in search of a mentor, just contact them!
Intermediates and up ONLY, acceptance of mentors is at the digression of OP. If you are not selected for a mentor, do not complain.
Post in this thread with the following code filled out: (Staff feel free to help edit the list)
ONLY CHANGE WHATS BETWEEN THE *s
[code:1bmdkv8x]-*YOUR NAME HERE*
Current Animating Status: *ANIMATION Level*
What Skills You Wish To Teach: *Write what you will teach here*
How The Student Can Contact You: *PM, MSN, AIM ect.*
How Many Students You Will Mentor: *Self explanatory*
Currently Mentoring: No one.
-PM *YOUR NAME*-[/code]
One you have submitted your request, you will be added to the list of Mentors on this post. But there is one more thing you have to do (besides Mentoring, that is). You need to frequently check this thread, because that is where the Students will request that you mentor them.
Any rank may apply for this. To do this, PM the mentor that you want to teach you and ask if he would mentor you. PMing them is better than posting in the thread, because you can be sure that they get the message that way, because they might not check back on this thread every day.
