Animation Time! - Dota 2 Sniper Rig

Today's Inspiration:
I am not sure that all of my inspiration comes from somewhere other than my own burning desire to do art. For sure part of it comes from the people in my life. Part of it comes from what is occurring in my life at any given time. Part of it comes from what is occurring in the world at any given time.

We didn’t choose art. Art chose us. It was as if we were born to do art. My Ma told me we started to draw at 3 and just never stopped. We were obsessed with it.

Most artists live in their head. Their head is filled with ideas about art and not much else.

live your art every second of your life. Never settle with your art. Continuously push yourself to do what you are sure you cannot do. Once you have mastered what you are sure you cannot master go further.

Squirrel Hop - Animation Time!

Today's Shot is a Squirrel Hop.
The Squirrel looks both ways with a little up and down and squash and stretch with overlap on the tail. He then squashes down with little hip shakes, stretches out and jumps up. He does a flip in the air, followed by a flip in the tail which does an s curve out of the arc and snaps back to the original position with a little bounce. The hips stretch back down and squash then pop back up with a little bounce and overlap in the head and tummy.
