I went to see Coraline in 3D today. Though the 3D part hurt me somewhat (i need to see it again in regular), i walked away with a feeling of loss.... loss that i didn't try harder a couple of years ago to get on that film. And after a weird conversation today with a friend i also realized that i have to stop sitting on my ass. "Nathalia realizes that she needs to stop saying she wants to do things and just do them" is what my Facebook status says. i came home and thought about animating... but honestly my studio space is a mess. through no ones fault but my own and it'd take me all night to clean. So i popped on the movie that really made me want to go into the animation business in the first place and that was Nightmare. I watched it again and stopped and drew a couple of poses. I've had a couple of whispers of ideas running through my head and i will see them emerge to the light of day. I'm exhausted and need to got to bed, but here are some sketches for you to enjoy.
PS: that will be my motto this year... "Stop trying to hit me and hit me!"
