What a journey this project has been! I feel as though Phil, Alan and I came to a desicion that this idea of creating a film about how i feel when I draw was the best route, and I moved away from my idea of a superhero campaign.
I defininetly felt more comfortable with what I was doing, however I didn't realise how much I would struggle too with the Maya sections and how to put the scenes together; even now I feel I could do better, yet with some guidance and help I feel my film is okay and narrates a story pretty well.
Having many setbacks from my personal life and mental health has been a constant battle, as well as the RSi creeping back; I feel really glad with what i've acomplished.
There are many things I do wish I could improve on:
My 3D skills - I believe that the interest in 3D and the technical side of things just isn't in me, and i've discovered myself to just embrace and love drawing.
Stage direction/ camera movement/ angles: This is quite noticable that I need to improve here; I just haven't done this enough and researched enough on how to do it.
Strengths: After Effects skills: My AE skills improved alot during this project
Drawing: I found myself drawing and painting even quicker with good results and able to produce successful images.
This entire course has been the journey of a lifetime and one I will never forget, as it has shaped me and I will continue to shape into a human being out and ready to step into the big wide world.

I used this tutorial originally to make the flame. The base is the CC Particle Word node along with 5 other effects stacked on top, such as blur and adding more glow.
New video, that reveals the character through the fire:
