A series of videos that explains the fundamentals of animating like a pro. I always thought it was simply just a matter of animating…but it’s quite interesting to see the tricks pros use to make animations come alive. Putting this here to help with my project!
Some good information that can be used for any person trying to create their own stories. Pasting this here for my own research when I start my animation project!
A documentary following some the most creative thinkers working in the world of art and design today. It’s a interesting watch for anyone going into the field (me!).
For the next couple of weeks I want to showcase some animations made by artist and not by major animation studios. I really enjoy watching these animations because it showcases the work and dedication the artist put in order to produce the animation itself.
This particular animation, “Draw With Me”, was one of the first animations I saw on youtube and was created by an artist name Mike Inel. I appreciate the soft colors and simple designs of the characters of this animation. The style represents a cute and innocent vibe but reveals a more darker and eerie narrative.
Saw this interesting illustration on the subway the other day and found it very appealing.
It’s an ad for the School of Visual Arts and it was actually drawn by a student. Big dreams to reach! Maybe one day my work would be an advertisement.
The 42nd Times Square shuttle station has the most interesting paint jobs for their trains. This recent on happens to be an advertisement for SONOS, but the artwork itself is very eye catching. There have been numerous paint jobs done to these trains and I’m pretty sure plenty more in the future.
The MTA subway stations provide a lot of artwork through their stations, below you can see a list to find the stations that provide them.
Drawing realism has always been hard for me to grasp since my style tends to focus more towards the “anime” style. With a lot of practice I have been getting better. I went with the challenge of drawing an armadillo to further improve my skills and I have to say I’m really happy with the result.
Drawing animals can be harder than drawing people…but it isn’t impossible with a few tips and a lot of practice.
Took a visit to the MoMa and it was quite an eye opening experience. The museum has art to appeal to everyone and to all taste. Plus, the good thing is, it’s free to the public on Fridays!
