One thing I've been trying to do lately is get back into rough animation after years of doing very tight, very detailed feature -animation style clean up drawings . I'm trying to loosen up and think : "expression" , "movement" , "inner forces" , etc. and not get so wrapped up in doing a pretty drawing, with a slick clean up line, even apart from animation tests, in my character designs and misc. sketches. (there's always time to clean it up pretty later on). Let me tell you: it's hard breaking those habits that one acquires as a clean up artist . The little self-censor comes on in my head and says: "not good enough" , "not tied-down enough" , "not original enough" , but then I remember why I started this thing : to post my silly little doodles just for the fun of it . No pressure to perform, no pressure to do a "perfect" drawing . So, anyway, this one captured some of the intensity of expression that I was going for. I sort of liked how it turned out (even though I noodled the color washes too much) Hope you do , too , if you're reading this blog.
