Young Hermann Gottlieb is so important.
Oh man. I just had a Hermgasm.
I can’t help but mentally color these in with garish 90’s colors, imagining wee Hermann in old, outdated hand-me-downs or something.
This isn’t directed to the average pedestrian tumblr user, because I get that non-artists don’t understand the crazy things artists do to make animation. It’s hard to understand unless you’ve been through the process yourself. What I’m fuming about is the aspiring animators and artists that I see ranting about how the two errors totally undermine Frozen’s animation quality. (This isn’t directed at any artists who still appreciate the animation)
Where are your eyes?! Did you not see the great subtle character acting throughout the movie? The awesome snow simulations? Check out those sweet blendshapes!
To anyone who thinks I’m putting Disney on a golden pedestal, I’m not. I agree Disney is flawed, but if you want to criticize the animation, actually criticize the goddamn animation. For example, “The way the ice stairs materialize in Let It Go looks too uniform.” or “I think a few parts of Anna’s animation is too reminiscent of Rapunzel”. Something you know, more animation related than, “Oh gee look at the clipping.” Heck, if you’re an animator worth your salt you’d understand that the braid thing was probably intentional. If two technical errors keep you from appreciating the overall visual quality of the film, you’re not going to make it as a professional. There’s something flawed with how you view animation and you’re focusing on the wrong things.
I don’t care if you’ve had a year of 3D learning and could totally fix that yourself. If you keep going in your career like this, your animation is likely not going to look good because you’re too obsessed with intersecting polygons rather than what the character is actually doing. You’ll likely have trouble improving because you can’t recognize the good aspects of professional-level animation. No one will want to work with you because you can’t bring yourself to see the merits of the work of your peers or superiors. Don’t be that person.
I’m sorry but can we talk about how the Doctor has visited Ankh-Morpork

At the moment, we’re just trying to gauge interest and see who’s in the area, but it would probably be in a few months, after the new year. We can start thinking more about location when we get vectors for who may participate :)
A voice cried out from the car that had pulled up in front of the alleyway, and Peter Parker froze in place, tensing up as he spun towards the source of the voice to see…
A snub nosed woman with large glasses, and a round face framed by short dark hair and bangs. She was wearing a pink blouse underneath an oddly structured black dress covered in large, overlapping scales of what looked like vinyl, but probably wasn’t.
Peter Parker stared at the woman, hoping he misheard and that his cover wasn’t already blown, because, seriously, that would suck.
But no, the weirdly accented lady was striding directly up to him… Saying, a little quieter this time (thank god) “Spiderman! Love the work you did with the giant lizard man, very impressive. And I have to say, for an amateur, your suit is simply marvellous. I mean it, impeccable tailoring, and I especially appreciate the practicality of it. The next super who asks me for a cape. Phwah! I will simply refuse them entirely.”
The woman grabs at his arm, and holds it tightly. It’s a fairly impressive feat since she’s probably about four and a half feet tall at the most, and Peter has to jerk it away. “Lady, I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’m a high schooler?”
“Yes, yes, the pursuit of lower education is very noble. But I’m talking about your other hobbies, darling.” She said, in a conspiratorial whisper.
“Uh….” Peter Parker says, unsure what exactly is going on, here, and more than a little nervous.
“And no, before you ask, I’m not a super-villain, but I know everything about you anyway. Come on, just a friendly chat, we’ll have some tea, I’ll show you some very comfortable and virtually indestructible polymer fabrics, we’ll discuss colour palettes… All very enjoyable. And don’t worry, all the grocery shopping you were about to do is in the car for you to pick up when we are done. I come prepared.”
I know it’s trendy to fight the system and cry that we are all becoming slaves of technology, but this attitude overlooks that computers and phones are tools for communicating. When someone thinks I’m an idiot smiling at a machine, I’m actually smiling at my girlfriend who is 10000 miles away and whom I would have never met if not for these newfangled electronics. As they say: when the wise man points to the moon, the fool looks at the finger.
This is a topic that I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while now; much credit to this excellent post for bringing it to the front of my brain.
