Admittedly, I skipped a lot of the Troll’s dialogue because it bothered the everloving CRAP out of me to try and decipher it all…
Sure, some parts of the fandom scare me… other parts of it amuse me greatly… and a lot of the art I’ve seen from the people who don’t scare me is pretty friggin’ awesome… [and I’ve been meaning to do some too, but I’m terrified of doing a poor job but I may just bite the bullet soon…]
But when Jake donned his computers… well, you know that ragecomic image… with the dude who’s all “DO NOT WANT” with his neck all tilted back and such?
ArtsyPoses - Relatively new, but very cool. The 30 second drawing tool seems to be glitching a little but that could be my computer being a dumb. Lots of unique poses and they’re looking to expand to other body types (if you read the FAQ they even said there are too many fit models).
PoseManiacs - Everybody knows this one! Great poses, you can interact with them (rotation, etc) and has a very cool 30 second drawing tool. Also I belieeeve this is available on iOS.
Pixelovey - Another fantastic drawing tool - I prefer it over PoseManiacs’ but I can NEVER FIND THE LINK :( Lots of options here, too.
CedarSeed - The drawings here aren’t great but there is so much information here.
Ctrl+Paint - So many digital painting tutorials. SO MANY. Ridiculously helpful in everything ever, and constantly updated.
The Angry Animator - Because come on, all sorts of handy animation tips. I linked directly to the walk cycle because I found it to be most useful but there are other things floatin’ around there if that’s your thing~
Constructing the Head/Face - Done by Stanislav Prokopenko, an instructor. Also really seems to know what he’s talking about. Saving images off of Tumblr seems to be hit-or-miss so keep this link handy as it may not save correctly.
Drawing Muscles - Some of you may remember this from all of James Phegan’s classes ever! Super handy, and this is a printable version of the giant jpg he used to e-mail us.
Mental note to self: I had a discussion via text message today with my girl about how I feel the term “geek” is losing it’s meaning and that it’s going the way of the word “punk” and such… I have more to say on this subject but right now I need to sleep. This is just to remind me to talk about it at a later date.
So, if you don’t know, “Frankenweenie” is Tim Burton’s latest animated flick… it looks pretty sweet, but considering the original material is his live-action short film with Daniel Stern and Shelley Duvall… yeah.
I’m stoked to see it either way… FUCK YEAH STOP MOTION.
I assume it’s just a bad day or something… but seriously, I had this awesome idea and now it’s just… not working… and I’m pissed off that I can’t draw anything and it’s really starting to bother me… like, more than it should really.
The worst part is, looking at other people’s art just makes me more and more depressed about it, ‘cause I just see what I can’t do…
