So I'll be sending both a static and .mp4 to you. As usual, very high res. static image, standard HD resolution mp4, maybe more.

Animated ref sheets are really nice. No, great.

Why?

Because, as an artist (or at least a professional one), we look at how something moves, how it's weight is distributed. Does it move confidently? Powerfully? Naively? How does it look at you? How fast is it's breathing? Where does it's shoulders lie?



And let me tell you. 


I can tell

if an artist

Doesn't pay attention to that.

It SHOWS.

Anyway~

I'm really glad I learned Aftereffects.
This works differently than flash (which is actually becoming quite dated), it's easier, better quality, and just fantastic for illustrations.

Don't Look Behind You by Copper-LightSource
Don't Look Behind You
I finally got to doing undertale fanart last night during the stream so yaaaay

This is really rough/just a sketch but I promised myself I wouldn't take too long on each and my friends made sure I didnt ._."  Thanks, guys

I'm just uploading this one separately because I added color
Loading...
Or rather, should I say, should traditional and digital be used together? Should MEDIA be mixed?


I've noticed that 2 things:

Deviantart is not kind to this. I've submitted multiple works.
And Deviantart FORCES YOU to chose.
There's no hybrid option.

Groups within DeviantArt are not kind either. If either or is used, they say, "just don't submit" (and a negative comment of some sort saying you made it bad anyway)


The other thing I've noticed: Outside of deviantart:

People don't give a flying fuck.

They don't care how you came to your final product.  As long as you made it the best you could.

Oh you took a bad picture?
Well are you just going to accept that or are you going to actually use that program you spent hard work learning? 

This had been bothering me for a while.

There's no reason things should be strictly digital or traditional, unless YOU want it to.

I've made things in digital and edited them in traditional.

I've made things in traditional and edited them in digital.

I've photomanipulated.

I've photoillustrated. 



And then people give the excuse

'traditional is harder than digital because a, b, c, and the entire alphabet. You're just making up for a lack of skill by using photoshop'

I actually used to believe that.

Rather-

*You're making up for a lack of skill or knowledge by using photoshop instead of paper.

*You're making up for a lack of skill or knowledge by using traditional instead of digital.

It can go both ways. And in reality - you need to know both.



The only difference is there's no backspace, and you can, for the most part, not move things around in traditional. So basically it's a lot less kind to mistakes. And you can never copy it exactly. However, these are all disadvantages. So I'm not sure how these are used to defend it. Also, making it 'less kind to mistakes' doesn't necessarily make it hard.

First off the basics of anatomy, color, composition, character design, lighting, style, pose, capturing the essence of character, and are indifferent of media. These are why they're called basic skills. These are true for photography as well (give or take a few such as anatomy)

What's the same?

Well we still ahve to deal with learning brushes. All the different kinds of brushes.

The canvases can become lost or destroyed. Files get corrupted, files get lost, programs unexpectedly are quitting. Paper rips, paper gets lost, paper gets destroyed, paper gets eroded even.

You have to learn a vast amount of media in both.

Different paper types, paint types, pencil types, tools, etc. Just media in general.
Different programs, file types, tools, effects, adjustments, workings, etc. Just media in general.


Not to mention.

Animation is digital art. 
Frame animation can be done either way but vectors- a type of 'digital media' that is something new and difficult to learn.

A lot of the traditional elitists, or rather purists, don't even fully understand these programs.
They're huge.
It takes years to learn them and even then- you don't know everything.
Their inner workings are intricate, complicated, and sometimes... No, the Undo button won't help you.

You still have to move your hands delicately, understand how colors blend with all the different blending modes.

For a long time I've felt inferior due to a lack of ability to work with traditional media.

But it wasn't a lack of ability.

It was actually an overload of love- for digital. For the programs.

I now have access to Adobe CC.

I've experienced Web Design, Programming, frame and vector animation, vector graphics, 3d modeling, 3D animation, photography, video, typography, photomanipulation, layout, digital Publishing, digital painting.

That's when i realized that one wasn't above the other. 

You can do whatever you want.

Don't let anyone intimidate you into one media.
Or multiple media.

90% of it is all the same anyway. It's creating something that never existed before.

Do what you love.

The only rule is use your own work (.__.  )

I think that's the funnest part of all, though.


I think in DeviantArt, they divide it way out of proportion and make people feel pressured. And forget it's all art.

And that it's always good to do something different.

Hope you enjoyed this uvu

You all should try mixed media stuff, you end up learning a lot.
