So I got a question on ‘how to avoid sameface’ and thought I could do a quick tutorial. And then it took way longer than I thought. Whoops.

Anyway uh, these are some quasi tips/pointers/methods I use to avoiding the dreaded ‘sameface.’ I didn’t get to add it in here, but a lot of it is confidence.

Also—keep in mind that ‘sameface’ is very, very subjective. This is just how I, personally, do it—other artists might have different ideas in character design. I’ve still got a lot to learn myself!

ALSO I TALK WAY TOO MUCH IM SO SORRY

My secret to art is that I don’t know what I’m doing 99% of the time.

This is the most awkward and the most helpful tutorial I have seen all day thank you.

Let’s revive hand drawn animation! Let’s get the fun and ease back into 2D! You, and the animation community, can now make this awesome dream tool happen!

Hey animation fans - there’s an indiegogo project hoping to make a program that’ll bring back the ease and grace of hand-drawn paper animation to computer animation - BUT IT’S ONLY GOT 11 DAYS TO BE FUNDED!

Please have a look! I think this could be a really big deal for the animation industry, and animators everywhere be they professionals or just beginners
