Lately, I have been thinking about going back to Animation.. And this time, I want to draw using my own hand, for the first time in years!
So, with much motivation, I took up the recycle papers I managed to collect from the dustbin from my office, and clip them up together to be my sketch papers. The idea is simple, draw them up in paper and scan them into computer, from there I will re-draw the line using the mouse.
Without a proper animation background, it proves really really difficult to maintain where the actions and movements are going. Though I have faith in my skill to portray movements. Still, the results proves devastating. The movements are incorrect and I don't even sure what am I suppose to draw for that particular view.
And whats more, after giving up after a few pages of 'animating' and lots of paper shuffles. I stopped, took a breath and draw the characters which I am very fond of, Zhan. And suprisingly, I can't draw even draw his face properly...
Of course after that i did a few more art test to be sure. This kinda make me sad. As I realize after years of perfecting my skills using the mouse, I already lost my skills in drawing using a pencil. D: Though I managed to suppress the zik-zak lines caused by the trembling hand.
I always dream of going into animation field, maybe even apply for Dreamwork and fly there for f*ck sake.
Now I am just back to square one.
