Could it be??? More anon asks! I hope this works cos I saved this as a draft before the layout change and editing drafts is all kinds of broken now. Fingers crossed
Haha not really, I’m pretty fond of this face though
Anon 1: oohh interesting question!! From my understanding (in 3D animation especially), the COG is always at the main pivot point of the rig, just like its name indicates, being the centre of gravity and all. It’s usually around the hips on a character. Now the power centre… Again, this is just… from my experience, I might be wrong, but the power centre is where the force is coming from in the body. It’s the area in the body that’s leading/driving the action, and everything else drags after it. So the power centre can be the hips, the chest, the shoulders, etc. I think!! Somebody correct me if I’m wrong haha. I hope that answers your question?? <:D
Anon 2: Haha WHAT, I have never in my life heard of animating on 6s or 20s, that is nuts. Most animation is done on 2s, which I explain here! I assume by “animating on 6s and 20s” they just mean spacing out the keyframes to make the motion slower, probably!
THAT… is one heckova loaded question!
In terms of how quickly I got my job out of school… Yes, it might be considered easy to some? I think I was just lucky I was open to the right opportunity at the right time. But I also worked really hard to get that opportunity, so no it wasn’t easy. It was a combination of hard work, networking, and good timing I guess!
Aw I’m sorry! Everyone goes through rough patches of not being confident in their drawing abilities (aaalll the time, for serious! I DEFINITELY still do), and if you don’t want to show people until you’re happy with your art, then don’t show people! You’re just starting high school next year? Then DANG you are still SO YOUNG and have plenty of classtime doodling to hone them skills*! If I were you, I wouldn’t let what they say discourage you! If you love drawing, you just keep on drawing cos that is the #1 way to get better. It’s super healthy to be open to constructive criticism, but like anything it should be taken with a grain of salt because at your age, you’re still learning the basics and what you enjoy in drawing so just… have fun with it and don’t let others getcha down for doing what you like. c8 Don’t feel like you always have to show off your work, I’ve found it helps a lot to not have that pressure.
I um… I hope that helps?? Good luck dude!! :)
*though it is Not Right to doodle, this is a thing that NQN fully supports as long as you… also… pay attention. Unless you’re super bored then doodle away regardless
