let it whistle through your hair by kelogsloops let it whistle through your hair by kelogsloops

For those who do know; I love Pocahontas. It's inspired by the scene in the wind where she's singing to Colours of the Wind. The pencil-animation that Glen Keane draws, you can really see the expression and fluidity of his work and the animation. It feels so alive, authentic and raw. Not to mention the idea of 'painting with colours of the wind'. So cool!

I've been struggling a little with university, so I'm finding it really hard to adjust to this new sudden takeover of my weekly life and schedule, but I'm finally getting a little time to breathe and develop a rhythm, because man oh man, do I miss drawing more than ever. Sadly, this is all I have to show for the past few weeks. It's not much, but it's all I've been able to muster for time! Hoping you like this little watercolour piece as I slowly as ever, try to get used to watercolours!

Interesting enough, I got the feeling that the person seems, not happy.  But the warm colors in the hair seems to be those care/troubles bleeding away in the wind and slowly coloring the world.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and reading on this! It always is so interesting to see people's thoughts!

It was inspired heavily by Pocahontas, and my feeling that I get when I listen and watch that film is the idea of freedom and the clarity of mind against mayhem, turmoil and chaos. The feeling when you let go, and just follow your intuition.

Great movement of her hair.  It's like she is stand still, to freeze a moment in time, but life is not allowing her.

Wonderful as always!

oh yea, freakin amazing.  and it's 2d.  goes to show we don't need 3d animations all the time.  2d animation needs to have a comeback in animated hollywood films.  It's a shame to see it die out there.

Agreeed. Man it makes me just wanna pick up a pencil, and learn how to do animation and just do 2D animation HAHA. I WISHH

lol, i tried that.  went to school for it.  it wasn't til later I found out most 2d animation in the U.S is outsourced anyway and also I just discovered it wasn't really for me.  You have to spend countless hours of time just perfecting few seconds of animation.  As a struggling artist I can either put out one 10 second animation a month or 30 illustration pieces.  Who knows, I may get back into it but most things are 3d now so it's like if I wanna make it here I have to just do 3d animations and my art ability will suffer.

Hrmm..... Well i guess my issue or question is; what prospects are there for an illustrator? I don't really know much about the industry, but I was interested in animation because I always wanted to work for Disney or create a short film. The idea of telling a story, yknow!
Otherwise, concept art was always something I wantd to do as well haha. But I feel like that's so much harder to get into.

Yeah!!! That's so true. Someone once said 3D anmation is where it's not about the art anymore, it's just about the science or mathematics or something which was a little sad to hear.

yup exactly. it's just struggling with the 3d program to get it to move the way you want.  I mean, you still have to think about sillohuette and composition and all that so you're still doing some art and animation is an art in itself but i feel 3d animation is just basically stop motion animation but in a program.  you're hardly drawing when you do 3d so that's where you suffer is your drawing/coloring skills I guess

Yeah I feel ya! Need the eye of an artist/designer and the technique and experience of a fully fledged 3D pro! (I don't really feel ya, because I've never done it of course HAHA. So I can only imagine how hard it is!)

OMG THAT GENUINELY, is like my biggest watercolour fear. Mucking up the blending of colours and ending up with murky browns. TERRIFIED! Because for one of my art projects in high school, that happened and it ruined it and I was so mortified omg haha.

I hope it does lighten up uni, or rather, that I find a rhythm that I can stick to! I really want to keep active and keep my motivation running!!
