So, this summer, in brief. I want to get better. Be a better animator and all round artist. And so with that in mind I have started doing these random odd tasks here there and everywhere. Drawing my hands in 6 different positions each night. And copying as exactly as possible a frame of animation from someone I admire as an animator. I guess by copying there work I get an insight into their thought process as they have drawn that frame. For example Andreas Deja has a really strong line of action in his work I have discovered. Frank Thomas however seemed instead to trust to intuition. Either that or he's a genius . . . Probs the latter.
Today is day 3 of this and so far it has been going okay. . . . ish. I think style is something I can work my way up too eventually. For the moment however, I just wanna focus on getting it right technically, and then economy of line.
Will be posting some more up here soon. Along with some of my film work hopefully, some 11 second clubs and even a few more side projects.
All the best anyhow,
Geesus I cannot wait!!
