Hey all. I'm excited to announce the next workshop will be next Thursday night. Details are below (as well as the assignment!). Go to www.charactermentorstudio.com to find the link to pay/sign up. This is going to be a BIG ONE this time! I'm talking about ANIMATION and will be showing many examples of Disney MASTER's of traditional animation (and maybe some of my own) as examples. If you have ever wondered about animation, want to get better, or are a master yourself but love reviewing the fundamentals (I know I do)- then don't miss this! Tell your friends too- its gonna be HUGE! ALSO- I need your assignments (from here on out) to be high resolution scans with your names in the file names (details below also) because I'm thinking of making these workshops into a book down the road and some of your drawings may be included! Don't submit if you aren't interested in that. Thanks! -Tom B.

If we have time for Q and A, we will do that. Please email questions to Taylor before the webcast so we can review them. Her email is: email@example.com
This week's optional drawing assignment:
Show "weight" in a single drawing. (Please, no animated, multiple drawings, just a single pose).
You can do anything you like or take one of these two suggestions:
-A character landing from a fall
- A character pulling, lifting, or carrying something heavy.
NOTE: It's different this week- READ ON.
Please make HIGH RESOLUTION scans at 300dpi and save them as jpegs. Make sure your first and last name is part of the file name. (Example: JohnSmith.jpg). I would prefer if your email was somewhere on the artwork also. The reason is that I am preparing a future book and I may ask to use some of these contributions at a later date. Email those scans to firstname.lastname@example.org
