This is NOT good. This movement is no good…he cannot run like this. Whoever drew this doesn’t understand it at all no matter how i tell it. How to move the muscles is the issue here. If this point were to be clearly understood, you’d see these angles of the thighs are so wrong. This reflects the creator’s personality well: Ready to get back (home) all the time…Whoever draws like this had better be dead, really. To think the amount of time a person spent making this, and the attitude towards life. That’s really what I hate the most!" - Hayao Miyazaki

I cannot imagine the shame I’d feel having one of the gods of animation literally shitting on my work while having to begrudgingly revise the entire scene in a well-known documentary. But I know the feeling dealing with revising scenes, even in storyboards. I wonder who’s work that was that he had to revise? Awesome to see Miyazaki-san in action though….

Tuesday Tip - Beat Boards / StoryboardsIt can be a daunting task to just “start storyboarding”. Because there’s so many things to think about when storyboarding, we all need a roadmap to know where we are going. Beat boards are not even the first step to creating a story, but it’s often the clearest way to pitch an early concept to someone. It’s also very useful to plan out the larger beats of a large physical sequence (action, chase, etc.). This way, you don’t have to go on a limb for a week or two and have to redo it all if it doesn’t work. They’re sort of like your Key Poses in animation, but put on a story scale. Does that make sense? Message me if you have any questions or suggestions about future posts.Norm

(Question from my Ask.fm account)

I’ve been asked a lot about developing styles and improving so I thought I would make an advice comic for you lovelies~ :>

It’s so hard to explain about our development in art styles. We may be influenced by the same things, but how we illustrate, express, and think is completely different. It’s not something you can buy or learn in a class.

Remember that age doesn’t matter and it’s never too late. You can draw whether you’re 30 or 13. You’re still young! And there’s no rush. We learn at our pace and should be proud of ourselves for continuing to draw. Not many people realize that art is a pretty tough field and I know a couple that have given up and chosen other paths.

Improvement will happen if you keep on doing what you love. It will take time but keep practicing and months (or years) from now you’ll be amazed at how much you’ve progressed. Soon your doodles that used to take you 2 hours will take only a minute or less.

But again, you have to just do it. This applies with music, performance, or anything else. Tutorials, books, and advices won’t mean anything unless you actually do it.

Don’t think about what anyone will think, if you’ll be famous or not, or if you’ll develop a “unique” style. Just start drawing. Fanart, figure drawing, animals, anime, just do it!!

You will improve and you will create great things. Just do it!!

I hope this helps!

The ENTIRE FLCL (FOOLY COOLY) SOUNDTRACK

featuring the brilliant and poignant sounds by Japanese alternative rock band, THE PILLOWS (2000). Next to CowBoy Bebop and Macross Plus, no other anime carried a sound that exemplified an entire project to me. 

To you Little Busters who are not on this, give it a spin!

Theoretical physics: The origins of space and time

Many researchers believe that physics will not be complete until it can explain not just the behaviour of space and time, but where these entities come from.
Finding that one huge theory is a daunting challenge. Nature explores some promising lines of attack — as well as some of the emerging ideas about how to test these concepts (see 'The fabric of reality').

Much like my leaf/tree tutorial this is another crazy simple guide but it might help a few of you! I love to get a lot of thumbnail type ideas down first before I settle on something final so I like to use this quick method as a way of exploration, basic research into what I’m trying to achieve and a means of creating variety in my work (I hope!) On the flip-side I know a lot of people struggle with creating environments in general, this could be a good way to ease yourself into drawing them without getting too bogged down in details and technicalities, just blasting your ideas down onto a canvas!

yup…
