aight, now I’m looking at society6 and printful. They both look like really good options. What do you guys think?
This really warms my heart. I just draw everyday and try to be better, so it’s really nice to hear this. Thank you!
Thank you! and I plan to! (though I’m not sure how soon) If you have any designs you particularly like, let me know ;)
Animation is HUGE right now, from what I can tell. Don’t forget that there are tons of studios outside of disney/pixar/dreamworks/sony to aim for that can be just as fulfilling! I do have peers in the animation industry (you go, guys). And all of them are really kind-hearted, hard-working people. If you work at it, network with people, and just be a nice person I think you’ll have no problem.
Then again, take my words with a grain of salt, I’m just a student at the mo’. Power to ya!
I’ve never really been into pencil grades or anything. Usually when I do rough animation I like to use a really soft pencil such as 2B, 4B, 6B (easier to get gestural lines). If you want to start out with some very light/roughs though, I might suggest using a light blue colored pencil. I have a lot of peers that use this method. Colored pencils are very handy for sorting out roughs, and then you can go back and tie them down with a regular pencil.
I guess my main suggestion is use softer pencils! Personally I think they allow for faster workflow. You get a wider range with a soft pencil (it can be very light or very dark). And I’m all about how utensils feel on paper, and softer pencils have always felt better to me. Alright, just my opinion! Good luck!
shoutout to you people that followed my blog for animation and stayed for all my silly drawlins
