Doug's Intro

Animator/Illustrator/Student Director

A drawing is an idea. As an animator, I turn ideas into stories.
I am currently a junior at the Kansas City Art Institute. It's been a blessing and privilege to be a student there after earning my AFA at the Southwestern Illinois College in Belleville, IL. I keep this as a journal of my latest projects and explorations in animation.

What I enjoy most about this study is that it is one of the first incremental movement studies I drew. Since I drew this out before reading any "how to" diagrams or text, these drawing have a certain "freedom" to them that seems to be lacking from my other studies. Plus, I greatly wish to further study some of these more complex animal movements. For example, the fish mainly gains the illusion of movement based on its progression through the space around it. This was one conclusion I made while doing this study.

  1. I like the range of subjects. And it's a good idea to keep notes.
