Where's the feeling? Where's the emotion?

Don Bluth's critique this week really hit home with me. There's no feeling or emotion, not in the drawing itself, but behind the drawing. He's been talking about this for a little while now between the man vs art podcast and his last two seminars. He said he's gonna keep shouting it until someone hears. I for one am going to open my ears as wide as they can go to hopefully try and grasp what he wants. A couple of his questions he wants us all to ask ourselves is did you push it till it becomes obvious what you feel? Can you draw a character that represents emotion? Can you animate a character that makes people think it's alive and thinking? And in the words of the illusive Mark Rudolph ... Think about it.
