QUICK AND DIRTY...



I find a good exercise to do is a quick and dirty facial expression chart of characters I'm developing - you'll learn really fast what the limitations are and you can adjust your design to be more friendly in production. Your animation team will thank you for it - I promise.

These are great! I did the same thing on my last production and it helped the animators a lot. It's great advise. I LOVE KAT! The odd thing is; I did the same angel with a halo and devil with horns thing you did for KAT with one my characters, that was 4 months ago, with no idea about what you did here. Coincidence? Or did we all just grow up watching too much Tom and Jerry cartoons.

Who IS the audience for this recycled tripe?

Todd Kauffman said...

Researcher: The average radio listener listens for eighteen minutes a day. The average Howard Stern fan listens for - are you ready for this? - an hour and twenty minutes.

Pig Vomit: How could this be?

Researcher: Answer most commonly given: "I want to see what he'll say next."

Pig Vomit: All right, fine. But what about the people who hate Stern?

Researcher: Good point. The average Stern hater listens for two and a half hours a day.

Pig Vomit: But... if they hate him, why do they listen?

Researcher: Most common answer: "I want to see what he'll say next."
