There is a Pope in the Cars universe. This means that there is Catholic Christianity, which means there was a Jesus car who was crucified. Jesus Chrysler was crucified by car Romans under Pontiac Pilot who washed his wheels. A car was nailed to a cross and ascended to Heaven.
Lessons Learned trailer (2014)
A new short film by Toby Froud: goblin kidnapping victim, puppet maker, and son of Brian and Wendy Froud.
I grew up on The Dark Crystal. I have owned that movie on VHS, on DVD, and as a comic book. I have two versions of the soundtrack. A collaboration between the next generation of Froud and Henson is incredibly exciting to me. I hope there’s a lot more to come.
Well I for one am extremely excited and am going to now have to find a way down from the ceiling

Recommended reading for animation students and enthusiasts.
I’m quite often asked about how to get started with animation. I don’t feel that I’m successful enough yet to really give out valuable advice, but I can recommend some books.
I deliberately left out “The Art of…” books because they entirely depend on which movies you like the look of. So I stuck with more practical ones.
I would also recommend “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain”

Tuesday Tips - FOLDS
More on folds today. I will eventually cover all types of folds but today is about simple folds on everyday clothes (t-shirt, jeans). The key is to know what to expect and then applying what you know to simplify what you see in front of you (when life drawing). A lot of the folds dynamics on shirts and jeans come from the “memory” of the fabric itself. Denim is thick and is likely to keep some form of wrinkles or folds around certain areas (knees). A lot of zig-zag patterns around the knee is very likely. When pushed down on the feet, the denim fabric will bunch up and combine with the zig-zag pattern. Shirts and t-shirts will react to the twist and pull of the arms and torso. Identify where the pull (or tension) is coming from and work from it. I tend to draw the seams because they clearly express the volumes underneath.
