zakuro-san asked: Hello! May I say that your animations are endearing and captivating and just wowoowowww I love your play with colors and styles and the cute little gifs you post on tumblr. Wonderful job on your demo reel, by the way. I've only started studying animation, but your work inspires me to work hard and definitely will be motivating me to work harder in the future. Keep up the amazing work!! <333

youcanbeking asked: what program did you use to do the little animation of korra smashing the nick symbol? ) i loved it<3 I'm just trying to find an animation program to use))


Answer:

hello! 

I typically use Flash to get the timing for the animation- i did for the korra one. The thing with flash though is that if you want to freehand animate and do not want  your stuff have the aesthetic of My Little Pony, the lines will most likely look like shit (no actual brush selection and idk, really weird pressure thing going on)

example:

then i go in PS and ink it.

(please look forward to my colored korra animation)

Anonymous asked: dont kid yourself, life owes you nothing if you dont put in the self study/work required to get anything from it. teachers, colleagues alike, cant spoon feed your ass every fucking hour of your life.


Answer:

AAAAAH is those one of those? hate mail? aggressive clash of opinions? i’ve always wanted to get some! AH, SO YOUTHFUL! 

-

but i agree completely. no one can learn for you, i don’t think i’ve ever said otherwise. on the other hand, it’s a matter of quality & quantity of information. in other words, environment is very important too. 

i make a point to never stress about hard work, especially on tumblr, because i am sick and tired of artists getting questions like “how can i improve” and their answer is always “well, YOU GOTTA WORK WORK WORK.” everyone is expecting that, everyone inherently knows that, so let’s just put it aside. 

I think recognizing that there are other forces that also influence your improvement is important because then you can identify your needs and put yourself in a position with more chances - and that’s still hard work (just as how you’d move to a city with more job opportunities in your field. it doesn’t mean you’re being spoon fed a job HAHA)

deleting an older tumblr & I just wanted to repost one or two things so they don’t get lost in the black hole.

recently I rewatched the movie with starlock and we were both in awe of the animation and textures.
