As has been detailed previously, ALL of my characters for this animation project were based on the same head mesh, which resulted in four characters looking rather familiar to each other. Not much variation was applied. In some cases, when designing characters, I think it’s okay to have resemblances. Afterall, every human shares the same facial structure.

Been a while since I’ve posted an update to the Wooden Production Journal. Sorry about that.

I’ve found animating to be a very lonely, tedious thing. But also extremely rewarding. It suits me fine, being the introvert that I am. Sometimes I worry that I’m spending too much time alone, at my desk, while the world marches by outside my window. But this is what I’ve chosen to do, and perhaps been chosen to do.

And it’s not like I don’t go outside. I just prefer being in my imagination than anywhere else.
