Heres another tips and tricks theory I came up with while in the shower one day...

**So you're trying to do fullbody now...**
and your stickfigure animations are still noticibly better than your fullbody. Your fullbody animations look stiff and too rigid compared to your sticks. So I'll tell you what I learned after studying and researching who I find is really skilled at making your fullbody animations look far from stiff and rigid. @Kintuin

You're goal for this, is really loosening up and animating pure gestures like this animation from Andi:
https://twitter.com/_ITSANDl/status/950101872190377985

Andi (Kintuin) once said to me when I questioned how he did it was
"I dunno man I just feel the next frame." (He does his animations without onion skin.)

To build on that... in psychology there are 4 things called unconscious incompetence, conscious incompetence, conscious competence and unconscious competence. This relates to how well you know a skill.
In hindsight...
unconscious incompetence - Not knowing the skill
conscious incompetence - Knowing you need the skill but unable to perform the skill.
consious compentence - being able to do the skill but only with effort.
unconscious competence - the skill is now 2nd nature to you.

Andi is at that level where its an unconscious competence to him. Its 2nd nature. To reach the gesturey nature of Andi's movement and have the ability to use your movement knowledge from stickfigures, you gotta let loose... a lot. You gotta train your intuition. Which means things like doing speedy animations where it forces you not to focus on linework helps... and turning off onion skin helps. But you'll first need a decent knowledge of the human body... but you don't need to know tons of anatomy to do this... you just need to be able to simplify the body into sections and 3D shapes.

So heres my tips:
- Loosen up and try and focus more on the movement instead of linework. You're going to be an animator... not an artist. Don't do any complex character designs. Just simple stuff.
- This may or may not help... but turn off onion skin. You're training your intuition to sense the next frame. So looking at the last frame wont help. But feel free to flip through frames as much as you want.
- Have a decent sort of base/outline/silhouette for the human body. You just need a heavily simplified version of the body that you're fairly used to. But don't get too caught up on maintaining the base/outline/silhouette... your goal is to capture the movement... not to make the drawings anatomically correct.
- Move the character a lot! Try and not have your drawings too similar to the last frame... move the figure a shit ton. Do heavy spacing... maybe some pose to pose.
- This will be HARD. But keep doing it and someday it'll become an unconscious competence.

OKAY. Thats it. This is some of the stuff I figured out and did when I was transitioning to fullbody.

there's a way i think about art/animation that i find works best with me, and i encourage you all to find one that works for you. the quicker u understand yourself and your craft, the easier it is to root out and improve upon your weaknesses

KINTUIN ADDS A WELL SPOKEN TRUTH.

The purpose of practicing a lot is to find yourself and how to apply tips like these above, and how they work for you so you can tweek it to your own preference. So keep practicing, and find yourself. :)

Heres another tips and tricks that I learned since you guys seem to have liked my last one.

When animating a fight scene, the angle of shots should be accounted for.
If done right it can really raise the quality of your fight scenes.

Here is the dojo thread with more detail:
http://www.hyunsdojo.com/community/view ... 12&t=18245

www.hyunsdojo.com
Watch and share the best animations on the internet, improve your own creative skills, and participate in a fun and vibrant community!

I'll post this on dojo for you guys too.
My theory about getting into the animation industry if simply put is:
- Put yourself out there for the world to see.


------------------
- Join twitter and other animation communities and make some friends,
- Don't be an asshole!
- Have some fun with animation friends! (Seriously we animators are lonely because we are rare. We gotta stick together.)
- Once your skill is somewhat around industy level make 2 or more all-out animations thats atleast 30s or more in length and your animation friends support you with retweets.
- If retweeted enough and your skill is apparent, industry people notice you!

Connections only work if you are skilled enough to work with your connections.

https://twitter.com/EmmyCic/status/936276468958748672

Put yourself out there! ... and do it naturally too. For example for me, I just wanted some bloody animation friends (IM LONELY). I didn't seek out "connections" just to use them or some shit like that. I just simply did so and am still doing it now because animation is a cool dawg thing and I WANT SOME PEOPLE TO SHARE MY PASSION WITH. MY FRIENDS ONLY TALK ABOUT SHITTY MEMES AND NO ONE CARES ABOUT YUTAKA NAKAMURA OR YOSHINARI OR COOL ANIMATION TIPS AND REFERENAINSIN AND N RGINTINIENAIFMIROGWUENUNGI)MEFVIWNE)NWBNWRMVIWTVNSDNAKNDKVANK.

But yeah! Put yourself out there.
Feel free to reply or message me shit about stuff like this. I still have a shit ton of theories no one usually wants to listen but if your interested, be prepared lol.

???FUN FACT: I just spent 2 hours scouring twitter for people with cool drawings, rounded up their emails, and sent them to a DTV talent coordinator. idgaf what school you went to, the only thing that's mandatory is great draws!

Lol, we're good guys. I technically have a job right now at a studio. I just rejoined the team. The "please hire me" thing was more so of a joke.

Like if you look at my twitter page, those words are completely hidden behind my profile pic. But thanks anyways. ;)
