MORE PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE.
I need to practice....i have something big up my sleeves and I am happy I am using this site... I'll need some good contacts and some new friends...
I've been doing solo works for a very long time...soon I'm gonna change that.
Nicely done I enjoyed that.
Despite my tremendous aversion to anything beginer's anime art, I like watching you practice with great delight. You have a sense of storytelling. Ever thought of trying a different style?
"You have a sense of storytelling."
STORY IS EVERYTHING, SO I AM HAPPY TO HEAR THAT!.
And this is speed anim so I didn't really put 10000% effort into character design. Plus i got a long way to go, and i like anime. you know...cowboybeebop...final fantasy....ergo proxy....dont you think that looks cool?
dont feel like doing the simpsons, style or rugrats, you know?
If animation is what you really want to practice, then I guess sticking with something comfortable is the way to go. On the other hand, I'm wondering if you're not specialising in an animation mechanic attached to this animation style. Just look out for the pitfalls is what I'm cautious about. Don't go pidgeonholing yourself before learning and practicing motion basics..
Sorry if this is dissing your faith but i kinda thought the thanks to God and Jesus thing was a little cheesy :/
Finally some one els has seen ergo proxy...

Good watch once again.
As Egrie said, you do have a strong sense for story.
However, please do listen to Egrie about the other points. I listened to her a long time ago and I'm a better artists for it.
The point is, there's nothing wrong with Manga style, however, it's called 'style' for a reason. Styles are simplified reality.
Everything an artists draws comes from real life, because real life is the most complex, it contains infinite information.
To master any style, you must first study from life and gain as much information as possible.
In summary, you need to seriously study the foundations of art to really become great at drawing and animation.
Remember to keep an open mind. You don't like Simpsons and Rugrats art style, that's fine. Just don't shun it completely. Give everything a try, you may even find you'll like the things that you thought you didn't, even if you don't, you'll become a stronger artist.
The sameness of the shots got me bored after a while, talking heads is OK for political talk-talk TV but you really should open up your world more (after all, it's your world! )
