Tracing gets you nowhere.I remember when I was a kid, I'd record Saturday morning cartoons, play them back, pause the image, put a piece of paper over the screen and trace my favourite characters.
Now this was really hard in the VHS era, because a paused image on a VHS is usually either broken up or shakes so much that you’ll have some kind of fit if you look at it too long, it depended on how cheap and sh*tty your machine was.
But I worked really hard at it, man. I spent ages getting the linework just right, I was so careful, and when I peeled the page from the static cling of the bulbous, cathode ray tube screen, the character looked exactly right on the page. And you wanna know what I took away from that endeavour? What all that effort taught me?
Jack f**king sh*t.
You don’t pick up or develop any skills by tracing. You don’t devise and perfect your own methods by tracing. You do not progress as an artist by tracing. All you get is a loss of credibility, especially in this day and age, bec

That time of year again!I can't believe it's been a whole year since I've updated my journal! Sorry for being so out of touch. As usual, my lame excuse is that I'm busy - but for a not-lame reason, at least. If you haven't already heard, I'm directing my first feature film. Its an animated comedy based on the myth of Medusa. We're in the early phases of development at Sony Pictures Animation, and I'm in a daily state of shock and gratitude for the opportunity.
But that's not why I'm posting!
Ironically, and embarrassingly, the very last journal I posted - a whole year ago - was to announce the same thing. My pals at the Wildlife Learning Center in Sylmar, CA are holding their annual fundraiser on Oct. 25 from 4-7 and I'd like to extend an invitation to all my DA friends!
And just like last year, I'll be there to chat and sign stuff. So bring your MLP or Powerpuff goodies that are in need of a name scribbled on them! You can purchase tickets

Tracing and EmulationAfter reading through the comments in my previous journal, I feel the need to clarify a couple of things.
First: Tracing. Does. Not. Help. You. Improve. Your. Art.
Never has, never will and you’re kidding yourself if you think otherwise.
Second: Emulation is not tracing. People seem to be having trouble telling the difference.
Tracing does not teach you anything because all you’re doing is copying the line work of an existing image. All the real work has already been done. You’re not learning how the image is constructed or discovering for yourself how to use your drawing tools to create the desired effect. You’d be better off just outright copy/pasting the base image and saving yourself the time.
Emulation on the other hand, be it simply trying to recreate an existing image by eye or (even better) going all out and trying to adopt an existing style, does improve your method. By “reverse engineering&
What IS Gamer Gate?I’m gonna be radical here and say that Gamer Gate isn’t actually a “movement.” After all, there is no central leader or structure that defines GamerGate. People who criticize the motives of one Gamer Gate person often find that that person has different views and goals from OTHER Gamer Gate people. So Gamer Gate can literally mean anyone... and no one. It’s a nebulous mist. A swarm of bees with no central queen. An army without a general. And as such that makes it VERY hard to criticize OR legitimize pro-GG people. Gamer Gate is literally just a hashtag. But HOW that hashtag is being used is interesting.
It’s not about women... except when it is!
Do you know what astroturfing is? Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astroturfing
Astroturfing is creating a campaign designed to look like a grass-roots movement for progress, while concealing it’s more sinister (cynical) origins or goals. So many pro-GamerGate people SAY they are a
