Just to preface things, here's a list of stuff that happened in the last year:
Oh and you don't suck I just said that so you'd read my post. Well actually you might suck, but you probably don't (we'll see)
So I'm going to this school that's really known for animation. I'm not going for animation though because it's hard as shit to get into and if you don't get in that's a lot of hard work down a drain. Also, you don't have to be good at animation to get in, you have to be good at drawing.
The way I like to explain it is I'm probably better than 99% of people at drawing. That might seem like I'm full of myself and over-exaggerating my worth, but what you have to remember is 90% of people don't do art, and the other 1% is still about 70 million of the Earth's people. The people who get into the animation program here are way better, though. Probably somewhere around 99.9%. That's one in a thousand.
There have been at least ten times now where I'll look over at someone's sketchbook and they'll just have this flawless disney-ass character drawn with perfect form where I wouldn't even know where to start. At first it was discouraging, then it was motivating, and it was just like hey wait a sec why do all of these pictures look exactly the same?
I swear to god all these animators have the same style. I can't criticize them, because they're all way better at drawing than me, but it seems like they were all taking notes from the same Don Bluth how-to-draw book. Also interesting is that half these kids have no idea how to make a fluid animation. I mean I know that's what they're going to school for, but come on I could name like twenty NG kids who are still in highschool but can animate better than these clowns.
Long story short, I'm trying to focus on drawing for a while so I don't feel so inadequate around all these 'toon nerds. I'm going to game design classes right now, but I already know most of the material just from watching old GDC videos, so I can usually just sit back and draw during class. It's pretty great except for all these goddamn Anime watchers and League players raising their hands to rattle off fun-facts. Hey I've seen did you know gaming too, ya hacks!
Hey so here's some cool stuff I drew. Feedback is cool and great and helpful.
I just realised that almost all of these are poofy-haired skinny white guys in t-shirts. I'm gonna work on that.
Okay real quick before I go here's some animated stuff I made:
