Bring us your roughs, your storyboards, your pencil tests etc. Talk about industry, schools, the hopelessness of it all, how we all gonna make it etc.
If you're gonna post animation that isn't yours give source or state that it isn't yours.
Don't feed the trolls unless you find that sort of thing entertaining.
>Stuff you may find useful, books basic program tutorials etc
>Reference stuff you can find with a simple google search

In the comments section of this FZD video where feng shows before and after, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rI6q6bv7do
but I'll quote it for you or you can check the picture
Some guy named Peter Clark says that its your personality that matters and that Feng was being too harsh by pointing that shitty art, is in fact, shitty
apparently, Peter said that he has hired people with less skillz
From Peter Clark
"I'm a professional artist and I have to say.... I think you're being a bit harsh with your comments. Calling peoples work 'amateurish' and 'high-school art' is hardly a great way to motivate your viewers moving forward. As a Lead Artist in the games industry, I have seen many people with less ability get hired. I've employed people with less drawing/painting ability. It all depends on the job AND the person's 'fit' within the team. Hiring someone based solely in their portfolio is a mistake. I get that you're highlighting the difference before and after training at your school, but try to ease off on the negativity..... it comes across as arrogant and made me reluctant to watch the rest of the video."
I can't seem to find the guy's website or anything as there multiple Peter Clarks who happen to be artists but the fact that he hired shitty artists based on their personality

>used to draw from imagination
>after looking on the internet, discovered that doing live and photo studies would help to improve
>months after doing studies from reference I can notice a huge improvement, can reproduce images with increasing precision
>can´t draw from imagination anymore
>just looking at the blank paper and trying to put figures in a constructed 3D space without any reference is terrifying
>my attempts and drawing stylized or imaginated figures fail miserably
>all my drawings nowdays are lifeless studies from life OR a constructed picture made from combining various references together
>watch people like kjg spontaneously drawing and feel bad
>show people my sketchbooks, they say my past drawings used to be more interesting than the ones now, despite having a lot of errors
>lie down and cry
tl;dr after months of studying from reference I can't draw from imagination anymore, wat to do?
Serious issue here. I´m having a very bad time criticising myself for this. Where did I go wrong? How can I improve my imagination and constructed drawing skills? What types of excercises are optimal to resolve this problem?
Pic is a study from life.
