Learn to Draw he says.
In the Animator’s survival kit. Richard Williams has a drawn picture of a statuesque human with Roger Rabbit’s head. With it are the quoted words “I just can’t stress the importance of life drawing in animation.”
Moral of the story… Draw more. Draw loads. Draw whatever, draw this, draw that, draw whatever is in your hat.
Don’t be afraid. Failing is learning. Whether progression is visible or not. It will happen, be patient but don’t be complacent.
Should I feel disheartened with my skill. Get over it. Keep at it.
