sure was cold last night. good thing we had trash to burn for warmth

While I disapprove of book burning in general, in this case…

This is a book by Christina Hoff Sommers, a woman who has been involved in feminism and feminist academia her entire life. She is a feminist. This book talks about the bias against boys in school (for example: boys are more likely to drop out and greatly lag when it comes to literacy).

Also the minute you start to support book burning, congratulations, you are now an oppressive and authoritarian group.

Do you ever think, like putting aside all the Tumblr bullshit and the obsession with gender politics on this website alone, do you ever just look at people like this and feel confused about how they live their life.

Like this person is so obsessed in whatever ignorant mindset they hold that they saw this book and immediately set in motion a series of events for their entire day where they would buy this book and ensure their camera is charged. They would then rip it up, while taking photos and light it on fire and put it into a fire smiling and put it on the internet. They planned out this entire thing.

This isn’t Mein Kampf.

This isn’t some controversial book calling for the extermination of a gender or euthanasia. 

It’s literally some mild critique by a feminist about how dodgy policies from over-zealous feminism can end up harming people rather than helping.

This person is so wrapped up in whatever self-righteousness they possess and so desperate for the approval of whatever circle they’re in on Tumblr that they decided they would burn this book, probably without reading it, and take pictures to show off that they’re so stupid and insecure about their own views that they’d sooner burn anything that questions them.

I dunno about you but I’m really just confused about how you could plan out these actions over the course of a day and not sit and think to yourself “wow I’m behaving in a completely irrational manner”. 

This is terrifying.

The second comment might be the most disturbing thing. “I don’t normally support book burning, but it’s okay as long as it’s something I disagree with.”

Animation prep process!

bridgioto:

I thought it might be interesting, if anyone was curious, to post some of the process that went into the short animation project I did at the Gobelins summer program! Apologies for the photos of stuff, the animation paper was a bit big to fit in my scanner u___u

We started off with an assignment: “someone, a coffee, and Paris.” We all had to choose a character and execute a short, 5-second scene around that theme, ideally expressing a bit about the character of the people of Paris.

The very very first step, after picking my character, was to do lots of studies of existing drawings! Roger was a Milt Kahl character, and copying his drawings was an education in itself. One thing helpful at this stage was to be looking for the volumes in the drawings - rather than copying the final contour, trying to reconstruct the process by which that final contour was found, building up from a rough sketch of the volumes.image

Around this time, I filmed a bunch of reference of myself. I had a general idea of the sort of posing and feeling I wanted - Roger is the perfect distracted musician, and I wanted to play around with some moody and introspective stuff, especially anything that would provide fun hand poses. After taking reference, I started sketching some studies of the poses I saw in the video, seeing if a Parisian story could arise from any of them:

image

I started to find some concrete little stories, and explored them with some thumbnails. One that I liked was a very focused Roger getting pulled out of his work by a passing sunbeam, and stopping to enjoy the moment. This would’ve been a much longer and slower scene though, and I traded it out for a shorter and simpler one where Roger, absorbed in a book, misses the table when he puts down his coffee, breaking the cup and ending up a bit embarrassed:

image

Once I had that, I went back and filmed more reference based on that second set of thumbnails! From that reference, I did further studies of poses, especially working out how the hand would pose and flow, and feeling out the rhythm of the scene:image

image

This next bit actually came after I’d done some early key pose pencil tests. Those tests didn’t feel as good as I wanted, so I broke everything back down to stick figures and tried to work out the poses again:

image

Around this time I also did a layout sketch with a rough background, just to make sure I had a good grasp on where the character was in space:

image

Throughout this whole process, I got a lot of really valuable feedback from the workshop teachers. Their critique and advice helped me push the whole scene to a readable place. You can see in a lot of the thumbnails that my poses were just halfway there - especially the coffee sip pose, where I actually had the coffee cup lost in the silhouette of Roger’s head. Thanks to the teachers, the poses I ended up with had much clearer silhouettes. If you look in the stick figure thumbnails, the coffee sip by then had the cup of coffee framed in silhouette with the head in profile - much better! This is how it turned out:

image

Overall, it was a great learning experience, and animating on paper again was amaaaazing :D I hope that sharing this stuff is helpful to anyone out there!

Wow, Guardians of the Galaxy has a sequel lined up, and they haven’t even released the first one. Marvel must feel pretty sure of themselves.
