So, today is great for two reasons. 🙂
1) I just posted all kinds of rewards for my awesome patrons over on http://www.patreon.com/lukemcquillan – MP3s, videos, concept art, etc. I post things like this once a month as a thank you to my patrons. You can join in the fun for as little as $1 per month and help an artist work to pursue his dreams for less than the price of a cup of coffee! And…
2) This comment from a fellow animator, Steven Cooper, has made my day.
…I don’t think in 4 years of school I ever produced something with this much finesse, even during group projects with several cohorts.
The form/anatomy does need work but believe it or not those are fairly easy skills to acquire if you just have time and dedication. What truly impresses me is the pacing and attention to details like foley sounds and nuances in character behavior. You’re expressing many competencies that I’ve seen senior animation students fail at or just avoid (Unafraid to let your character use the z-axis, pacing is succinct and characters don’t linger or morph awkwardly).
Keep up the good work, this is pretty astounding for a single person and really just in general.
As a self-taught animator who quit his job to persue this dream, I’ve got to say that constructive criticism like that keeps me going. Thank you, Steven!! Speaking of animation, I’m working on a brand new music/visual series to bridge the gap in between Whitcomb Wisp episodes (hey, working alone, it takes a long time!). More news on that very soon!
