Notes from a Glen Keane lectureEnjoy! He was such a wonderful and lovely person to listen to and meet. I got to see him draw Tarzan, Ariel and Beast. I got to go to a company event, so he shook my hand signed my Tangled book and chatted about what I did for a living and stuff I been working on.Notes from a Glen Keane lecture by Eyecager
- You want to connect, you want to put your own DNA into the picture and connect.
-Vulnerability. Telling someone who you are. Honestly revealing parts of yourself sincerely. The key to animation is sincerity. Step beyond your walls and share as an artist.
- Animation is the ultimate art form. No other art form will challenge you as much as animation can.
- You always want to be restless, I always had one foot out the door at Disney.
- it is important to not hold back and share all you have to your fellow artists. Got to keep giving it out and trust me it'll pour right back in.
- Drawing is about feeling.
- Conveying an emotion of peacefulness is just trying to capture someone living in that moment.
- Eyes are really key to e
Principles of Animation - 2. AnticipationWe're back! Let's talk about more Principles of Animation, and what a great one to talk about here!Principles of Animation - 2. Anticipation by FirstStepsAnimation
Characters are animated using poses, whether they are done through Straight Ahead, Pose to Pose, or both. Either way, we as animators get them to move from one pose to the next in order to have a performance to showcase to others. So, what will get characters to move from one pose to another pose? Maybe another character is interacting with the first character, which is obvious. Another reason could be the environment that is happening in the background (maybe it's a graveyard and the character is trying to move carefully). Whatever the case be, there has to be a transition from the first pose to the next. One of the ways we can get that motion to get started is Anticipation, and oh how Anticipation can be overlooked at times.
So what is Anticipation? Anticipation is simply the preparation before the move we're trying to aim for. It's telling the audience what we're going to do before do
How to get feedback on dAWe all joined this site, more or less for this reason, to get feedback on our art. The whole point of submitting art online is for people to see it and hear what they think about it.How to get feedback on dA by Yuuza
Now there are a lot of deviants out there who get little to no feedback and as a result ask the people who faved their art to comment or go to random people on dA and ask for them to look at their art or comment in the hopes that the person will be kind enough to return the favor.
A message to the people who do that, you're doing it all wrong.
Sure, if you ask 20 people who faved your drawing what they thought about it, you might get 1 or 2 answers, but in return, you'll be ignored by say 10 people and you'll annoy 8 people. I get these comments and i'm telling you, begging for feedback is not the way to go, if someone didn't comment when they fave, what makes you think forcing their hand is the right way to go?
A fav is a compliment, take it a it is. Not everyone has
