Spencer Bingham: Arts and Inspirations

I'm a 2D animator and toy collector. This space is a place for me to post my artwork, along with any handy references I find or really just anything I think is really cool.

I’ve met a lot of people who go “aw, Home on the Range can’t be THAT bad, can it?”

So let me tell you a story.

In my Animation Assisting class (basically how to do animation clean-up, a crucial part of the process), we were taught by a former Disney Animator who had taken made copies of master animation and assigned us very short bits of animation to practice/learn with. One such segment was from Home on the Range, of the sheriff yanking a rope down.

Now, I was DISMAL at this class, but the sheriff design was kind of fun so I figured, what the hey, Home on the Range is the only 2D disney movie I haven’t seen, I’ll give it a shot.

Oh boy.

First of all, the first 40 minutes are boring as sin. Cow loses her herd, goes to new farm, interacts on new farm, makes unfunny quips, leaves farm to save it by catching evil cattle rustler, etc. It’s confusing and dull and weird.

And then this happens.

When I told Coco (the teacher) about it the next day, she only smiled ruefully and said “Yeah, we called it Home on the Strange for a reason.”

I remember looking this scene up during that assignment and it still kind of melts my brain a little.

You may get asked this a lot, so please excuse my ignorance - but how do you go about constructing character expressions and body language and such? Thanks!

makanidotdot:

Besides The Basics (construction of heads and skulls and muscles and skeletons and how they move), I’ll go over some things I’ve been trying to work on myself lately:

1. Treat expressions as a single gesture of the face/head, as opposed to a head and then individual features dumped on a plate and arranged into an expression.

First, just get down the big shapes of your expression, just like you would for a pose.  

So say I wanna do a low angle angry pose.  I know the features are gonna be all mashed down at the bottom because of perspective.

 Scribble it down

fix stuff again

erasing and flipping and stuff a whole bunch until you are happy with it or stop caring

Whole head is a gesture!image

2. Just like a facial expression, jot down where the important parts of an entire pose goes first.  You can force the rest of the body to fit the pose.

So here I knew I wanted the shoulders tilted a certain direction, and te hand to be in that particular position in front of her face.

That’s the simplest explanation I got.  Don’t be afraid to push and pull faces and bodies around! Worry about being “on model” last!
