Does anyone else get annoyed when people call their own line art a sketch and stuff like that? In my opinion, sketch = a bit loose and messy at the cleanest point and line art = cleaned up sketch.
Just because you don’t want to call a particular piece you made good or finished doesn’t mean it’s a sketch, just saying!
Yeah, that bothers me a lot sometimes. I’ve seen artists post up some good, finished linework on top of a nicely cleaned pencil work which gives it depth and shading, and they still call it a sketch. I think when you’ve finished your third pass over the thing it’s not really a sketch at that point.
A little behind the scenes look of the early stages of Green Lantern the Animated Series.
My eternal gratitude to everyone who helped prove the doubters wrong.
Exactly the reason I hate focus groups, right here. Not only do good shows and movies get focus tested into mediocre sludge, games suffer greatly from the same problem. The guys at the top who stand to gain the most almost never seem to have any sort of passion for their own product, and they’re so removed from it as anything but a source of revenue that they legitimately don’t care about letting talented, creative people do what they do best and making something awesome.
There’s definitely nothing wrong with getting outside opinions, but making everything by the books and treating directed feedback like the Ten Commandments will only result in grade-A mediocrity.
