Don Bluth said that,
'I never concentrate on doing good sketches on the first pass, but place my focus instead on the emotional power that emerges from my imagination. With each new sketch,
I ask myself the same TWO QUESTION:
What Am I Trying to Say,
What Do I Want the Audience to Feel?
If I can't answer these two questions, I'm not ready to draw, so I put the pencil down. '
::What do you think? It apply in doing animation as well, If I can't answer these two questions, I'm not ready to animate...::
FYI, this is a very fun book to read at. Mr. Bluth shared his view of his career, not the history nor the drawing skill, but the positive attitude that we need all the time. Mr. Bluth showed his talent; moreover, his passionate in storytelling industry.
My last week Storyboard class assignment-

Can you believe this?! I created such cliché gag into my storyboard in 21st century.....!!! I'm running out of idea...
Oh~ by the way, the final ending could be a coke logo, or sprite, or pepsi.... whichever accept such cliché idea... Enjoy~
