COLLECTION OF YORUBA ORISHAS
Not to diss on European mythologies but can we seriously have some fuckin’ recognition that there are religions and mythologies that are not Greek or Norse. Why the fuck did I learn about the Greeks 6 times but we never fucking talked about Africa or even really the mythologies and beliefs of native peoples?
(Pssst from what group are these deities from?)
The Yoruba of western Africa.

The bestselling, award-bedecked Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell are reunited in this irresistibly twisty fairy-tale reboot, with glorious gold ink adding lustre to an amazingly beautiful book.
"I’m glad Disney makes CG movies now. I don’t have any drawing skills and can’t draw anything good without tracing (believe me, I’ve tried). So now I know that I can be an animator at Disney, just like I’ve always dreamed, because being a computer animator doesn’t require any drawing"
WOW whoa this is ignorant as all hell.
1. You need to understand anatomy and be able to draw in a 3D space, it requires more skill to be able to control shapes and also not break the model in order to move it.
2. If you cannot draw, if you cannot understand basic anatomy, you cannot animate period, no matter what medium you use.
3. Disney will not hire you. You need to be able to graduate a school and get past the judgement of teachers and show competence and this entire confession proves that you can’t do either.
4. Your attitude shits on people who actually work for that position. You’re saying “Man, I do not want to work, and CG is the perfect way to be lazy but get what I want!” You do not deserve it. You haven’t worked, you haven’t even shown that you cared and you simply will not get what you want assuming that CG is easier.
fuck this guy.
I can confirm this last statement. I’m actually starting my first session of a 3D animation program in college and drawing anatomy and perspective is what we are going to do the most of time for this session. If I want to go further into 3D programming, I need to pass my drawing classes first and be able to draw correctly characters and 3D environments.
Disney’s not going to take you on if you can’t show any evidence of actual solid drawing skills and understanding of anatomy, textures, good design, composition, etc in your portfolio. It’s as if they’re saying 3D animation is easy and requires no skill, and that’s bullshit. Have you seen the quality and moreover the DETAIL of some of the animated movies out there today? Recreating realistic textures so the characters don’t wander into uncanny valley, capturing realistic movement that doesn’t look stiff and unnatural, is HARD. Animation - whether it’s 2D or 3D - is fucking hard PERIOD.
