>>78671070 Not me. But i do study at one of the only two informative illustration schools in Europe. We will begin animation next year, 2D and 3D. I'm afraid my 3D ones will look like arse because i can't into 3D modelling and tech in general.
>>78672009 Draw from real life. And draw for at least one hour a day. Don't go for a 'style' like you seem to do now. Before you can make a style, you'll need to be able to learn proportions, perspective, volume and weight-points. When you can draw from real life, you can draw any style you want because you now know the fundamentals for it.
I can barely control my hands. I can type, sure, but I can't tie my shoes or shave my face. I cry when I think about how third grade doodles are better than my stick figures.
I want everyone in this thread to know that getting into an art school doesn't matter. Becoming a professional cartoonist doesn't matter. All that matters is visual literacy and the ability to take your ideas for cartoons and actually draw them out instead of trying to describe them with words.
>>78672452 Its not as though Alex is incapable of cartooning, though he is being simplistic. Ross would likely have to study the style he's trying to emulate to do so correctly. However I'd imagine good fundamentals will make the process far easier
Good fundamentals make the process incredibly easier. Without foundation, you're just fumbling around trying to replicate the lines and shapes of the art style. With foundation, you already know what those lines and shapes represent, so it's just a matter of altering your drawing slightly to mimic it.
>>78671070 Ah, another guy in the"studying animation next year" boat. I'd be glad to accompany you while the people in this thread call us blithering autists.
You're going to a pure-art place? Right now I'm looking at my choices between two of the general film schools in Los Angeles as opposed to somewhere like SVA (Didn't even try applying to CalArts; my art's nowhere near good enough and they don't even look at your fucking test scores.) Right now my plan is to do Screenwriting with a minor or supplemental in animation and see where that takes me. I already got into one, but the other's going to take a while longer (and will be exponentially harder to get into in all likelihood.)
>>78671898 If you want a career in art... you should go to art school. Your teachers will get you jobs if youre good. You'll make great contacts which will help you get work. Art school isn't about making you a better artist, which incidentally it will, its about getting you into the workplace. Its also about banging freaky art chicks.
>>78674647 I know the process is different, pal. If anything the animation would just be more of a hobby and a prayer that animation could involve actual writers instead of artists who just throw in a story.
>>78672389 The best tip I can give you is to draw what you see, not what you think you see. As for >>78672009 I dunno about this, man. Drawing 3D shapes before making the torso, head, etc really does help though.
>>78671070 God damn, hope you're not taking any student loans for that, your employment in the field is so unlikely and the degree is useless. You'd be better off starting a webcomic or something if you want to art for a living.
>>78672009 That is about as bad as it gets, anon. If you got accepted into a program with those skills it's proof that they only wanted your tuition money, they don't actually think they'll make an animator out of you.
>>78674673 >If you want a career in art... you should go to art school. Your teachers will get you jobs if youre good Pff, this is what art schools want people to think so naive people will pay fortunes to get in. Nobody in my art program got jobs through the teachers, we got them by shilling ourselves to possible employers and showing our portfolios around. Most places didn't care a damn where I had gone to school, just what my previous work experiences were and what my work looked like. At my current job they didn't even ask if I had an art degree at all until I was aready hired and the subject came up during a lunch break.
the only reason to go to an art school is if you actually believe that they can make you a better artist than what you can on your own. Which is true for people who have a hard time studying without supervision and professional guidance, but don't think they'll just hand you a job there.
I guess this would be a good place to ask. If I want to go to school for writing comics, is there a place to go that looks better than just going to any school and getting a degree in some kind of writing?
>>78675135 >>78675402 I'd love to animate for someone with a decent script once i finish my education. I work best if i am given strict lines and would prefer it over board-driven material. I'm actually surprised and just thought every show had scripts first.
