The wheels take impact and stress off your legs, and the position helps your spine, but you’re still doing running motions instead of biking motions, so your legs are getting a good workout, and you can go for longer

just a comparison between Suigimori’s official character art from Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire to the originals. The redesigns are pretty great in my opinion
Oh god my anatomy is hell but thank you for flattering me by asking!! I never took too many classes and I honestly feel like my style developed by drawing inspiration from other artists. Your art can improve if you look at a lot of art and make a lot of art. Always practice. USE REFERENCES!!
I also put a lot of love in gesture drawing. It’s really loose and really fun and it’ll help you get basic ideas for poses and anatomy down. Go to quickposes.com and do some 2 minute figures.
References and practice. Practice and reference.
Around April of last year my friend, Jamie Vickers, encouraged Ben Li and I to apply to animate on Masaaki Yuasa’s “Space Dandy” episode. Yuasa-san was apparently looking for international animators and posted about it on his Facebook wall. We turned in our reels and promptly got the gig.
I decided to only take on four shots just to feel it out and to make sure I got it all in on time.
The Carpaccio animation and shadow passes weren’t used in the final cut, but I decided to include them for this post to show what was turned in and approved. The rest of the drawings I did came through though! Very exciting to see the final animation all cleaned up, colored and cut together.
Yuasa-san was very open to us using Flash to animate our shots. The production took the final keys (genga’s), printed them out, retraced onto paper and inbetweened those drawings. It’s a pretty wild pipeline, but it totally worked. I am grateful to have experienced working under one of my most favorite directors, Masaaki Yuasa-san.
If granted the opportunity I would like to do more animations for Yuasa-san and other overseas productions in the future. For now I will continue working on my personal project that I aim to get done before the end of the year.
