The Power of the Pencil

1 comment
With so much digital work in animation today, it’s important to keep in mind that “design" should be the driving and motivating factor of design. While it’s a lot easier to create digital artwork that allows us to use multiple layers, textures and even 3D models to paint over, don’t underestimate the power of the pencil. The pencil is a direct line of communication. 

Glenn Keene has said, "the pencil is the seismograph to the soul."

The strength of pencil design work is that every mark on the paper is a deliberate stroke. Each value, each mark is a decision made by the designer. How you feel, what you want to say, is directly translated onto the paper.

This is one of the designs I proposed for the girl Smurf village.
