Every night dreams come to me that are so detailed and beautiful that I write down every bit I can remember about them down to the pattern of the wallpaper or the fabric of a piece of clothing. To better preserve my dreams and share my vision with others I have made a resolution to illustrate certain scenes that have stuck with me. 
While this illustration isn’t a great representation of a dream I had a few weeks ago, its concept is the same and the image hints at some of the story, I believe. I have tried to color it but so far I haven’t been able to do the vivid images of my dreams justice!

Quick Sailor Moon before bedtime! And my process. I always change things that I so carefully plan… (like the arm and the roses). Oh well.

I made it loop (roughly) forever….

I made it loop (roughly) forever….

Movement
After watching duet a thousand times, I couldn’t stop myself from working on animation and anatomy. Spending lots of time just thinking about movement and timing and anatomy and just drawing drawing drawing is tiring, but I learn so much every time I pick up the pencil. I drew some sequences on a large notepad and thought, why shouldn’t I animate things, even if I’m not that great?
And look what happened! I am so happy with this and I hope I can keep working on it and cleaning it up. Practice makes perfect, I guess! (And I should probably practice my timing… This person is a speed demon…)
