This girl looks very comfortable, like her clothes are made of bed comforters. I wish mine were, that would be awesome.

I woke up feeling weak, very shakey. Like a vibration.
In my dreams, I was given a serum that gave me weird plant powers to fight an evil plant that looked human, but all I would do is show my friends I could now make my toes bigger and more wiggly on command and then we went to Disneyland, but it was a weird dream disneyland and there was lots of Winnie the Pooh for some reason.

In honor of throwback thursday, here is some art from 2002.

2002 was the year I animated for the first time and made Bacon Man (then titled “Bakon Man”). It was also the year I bought my first prismacolor set! It also seems to be a year where I drew a lot of Invader Zim fanart and fancharacters. 

And Jhonen, if you see this, I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.

Just a lil’ bit of animation before I head out to work.
As you can see, playing with some squash and stretch and timing.

Since you're answering industry questions... What kind of hours do YOU normally work at the studio? What kind of hours do you think MOST of the industry likes to work? Do you work on weekends, do you get overtime? basically, do you think most studios treat artists like slaves?

quelico

Funnily enough I had to work a little late so I didn’t have time to answer XD 

I try to keep a schedule of about 8 hours, for example 9 - 6 or 9:30 to 6:30. In my experience, those seem to be the most normal and sane work hours. I like 9 - 6 because then you get some time to do personal work at the end of the day, but traffic doesn’t clear up until 7pm. booooo.

I would say that most of the industry adheres to this schedule as well, or at least tries to. I’ve been on projects where people would stay until 1, 2am some nights. I’ve done two all nighters in a row. It depends on crunch time and the project, but sometimes it gets crazy. I’d say a huge problem in animation is not knowing when to pack up for the night. 

I have definitely worked on weekends - I’v done it most commonly to make up hours that I would have missed, usually due to appointments and the like. I haven’t always been offered overtime, it depends on the project and budget usually. In my experience it’s not a frequent option.

Now, do I think most studios treat artists like slaves? I don’t. I think that despite some projects having insane schedules that can lead to instances like double all nighters, a good studio will treat you like a human being. I’ve heard horror stories of things like EA games a while back, but as far as my experience goes, I didn’t feel like a slave.

Just wanted to add to my previous question. :Y Would I be right to assume that Photoshop would mostly be used for stuff like concept art, storyboarding, etc?

Actually, I’ve seen more of Storyboard Pro and Flash being used than photoshop for storyboarding, although I think it does get used on some productions. I have only ever seen those other programs used for storyboarding specifically. I use photoshop for character designing and it also gets used for design work in other departments. Hope that helps!
