I see a lot of great posts about animation that I know I can’t appreciate.
I don’t know anything about traditional techniques. I don’t key, and I barely storyboard. I don’t know anything about colour wheels or colour theory. I don’t know anything about ‘the greats’ until I hit up wikipedia and most of the time I hardly know what I’m doing at all.
How I’ve gotten away with being an animator all this time is anyone’s guess.
A gun is a cold, grey piece of metal you hold in your hand.
You forcibly squeeze a trigger until a hammer smashes into the back causing an explosion that flings a blunt chunk of metal at another human being’s body rupturing and tearing and destroying everything in it’s path.
There is no reality where a gun isn’t the most violent mechanism created by a human being.

Remember when you read this story, to follow the lines that connect the boxes. They’re drawin in a “hard to follow” way intentionally.
