Years ago, I did an animation called The Dragon, the Griffin and the Chimera which is based of an old story of the same name. I would like to redo the animation in neat and much nicer too, so heres a preview I put on my Youtube channel of a recreation of the original's first preview:



7 years since finishing the original...

I've always wished it was better, I'd begun the original just as I'd started learning animation at Uni and at the time, I was still very inexperienced both as an animator and an artist. I did not have the patience or the skill to animate the scenes exactly as I would have liked and had cut many corners in getting some scenes done as my patience wore thin from working on it for over a year.

Don't get me wrong though, I'm proud to have completed such a project and there are a lot of scenes that I really like what I was able to do. Art is an ever changing thing, practice is the only way to improve it and there are no shortcuts, so a part of why I wanted to improve this and post a short preview is not to show how good of an artist or animator I am (Art is subjective =p but in all seriousness, I'm happy to admit i'm not the best at what I do, I just enjoy doing it), but to show you what a difference a few years of practice can do.

It saddens me to see young artists come to my channel to say they can't draw like me right off the bat, but I now have proof that I never started out drawing as I do now.

Besides, this was a fun project to work on =p It'll probably take a few more years before I get it all redone though... ><

Do film makers, animators directors .etc have only a certain amount of time before they can add whatever there is to add in their film before their deadline is due?

Well, yes and no. It's difficult to say because from my experience working Freelance, we pitch a project and are told it needs to be done by a certain deadline there and then. Should we manage to finish the animation before the deadline, we can then go back and add details and really flesh out the film or whatever. This accounts for small details like if you had a basic scene of a deer running and that was ok for what you were doing, you could add birds in the background or change the cycle to a fuller sequence just to flesh out the scene a bit more.

However, if we were to say, change our ideas or want to add a considerable amount more to the film, usually, we would meet up with the client(s) at regular intervals to discuss how the film is going and we would then maybe discuss what we might want to change and add or remove etc. Generally, these new things should fit within the deadline but we can pitch new ideas that might take us over that deadline and ask if we could have some extra time - delay the release. This is not ideal in the publisher's view, they may ask for the changes to be made within the already stated deadline so it becomes quite tough on us - the animators, and it ends up with us only being able to make the basics of the film or worse, we have to rush and cut corners in order to meet the deadline.

I've personally had some days where i've worked constantly day and night until about 1am to meet a deadline and I had to rush a section of what I was doing. Meeting the deadline is the most important thing for the people involved in making the film, quality is subjective based on the viewer.

You have an astounding gallery, and I would enjoy seeing more of your marvelous work. In my personal experience and recent encounters, I had not met many female animators, especially ones with such potential and talent! I am excited and anxious learn, not only as an artist, but also for the fun of learning new and unique ways to do things. I have always wanted to animate, and have thus given up on it years ago. I can honestly say when I watch how smoothly your animations are, I have been greatly inspired again to practice. With this newly found information and knowlege. I would like to personally thank you for being one of the select few that share such knowledge to others to learn and use for their own. I would enjoy seeing more of your fantastic work soon!

Thank you, I'm happy to have had that effect on you =) I'm sure you already know that I have a number of tutorials on my Youtube channel that help to teach people what animation is all about (A new video was uploaded last Friday too).

I see so many young artists give up on their potential when they're unable to make "Perfect" art there and then, so I want to encourage the idea that making mistakes is fine, it is how we learn as it is true. I never started off doing what I do now and I still make plenty of mistakes. What I show on DeviART is my best work, but I want to try and show my mistakes too - where I go wrong and how I go about fixing it so that others can learn not just how to remedy the sort of mistake I make but see that I make these mistakes to learn. For this, I would like to encourage more people to take a similar approach when uploading their work to DeviART, Youtube, and other places.

I totally agree in your method and appreciate artists more so like yourself. Something artsy, such as animation, takes time and patience, in which I used to have little of when I was younger. I simply wish there were more that went the same route as yourself. There are plenty of really informational and kind artists out there that share such savvy information that is delicately placed in the Tutorial section. It pleases me to see such amazing artists admit the fact they did not start at this level, because lets face it, you are not born with a paintbrush and pencil in your hand awaiting your canvas to appear from the doctors as you pop out.

We have our starting point and I greatly appreciate your response. In the future, I will be posting your name on any and all .gif art I do as a reference guide for others, so they too may find savvy information to help them with such things. :) Again, I thank you!

Indeed, it is because young people who start in this sort of thing can have little patience just by their nature of being young children. So I feel like it would be nice for artists to show their roots and their process so that we can encourage these people not to lose patience. As you said, we all have our starting points, we must never forget where it was that we came from.

Thank you for listenning to me and thank you for spreading this message too =)
