很多时候,动画或是其他艺术的创作会让人觉得枯燥乏味,毕竟,连续几周为同一个场景苦苦挣扎是一件很沉闷的事。在这种情况下,我们就需要搞清楚为什么我们会有这样的感觉,而答案往往是我们缺乏挑战。

10 Second Animation Tip: Challenge Yourself!

Challenge Yourself

Many times animation, and art in general, can feel tedious. When you’re working on a single scene or clip for weeks at a time, it isn’t hard to become tired of the same old same old. The key becomes understanding WHY you’re feeling that way, and one of the reasons may be a simple lack of challenge.

很多时候,动画或是其他艺术的创作会让人觉得枯燥乏味,毕竟,连续几周为同一个场景苦苦挣扎是一件很沉闷的事。在这种情况下,我们就需要搞清楚为什么我们会有这样的感觉,而答案往往是我们缺乏挑战。

As artists we can fall into the trap of finding a particular groove that works for us (and earns us praise from friends, co-workers, or directors) and then snuggling down into that groove and refusing to leave. After all, if it’s not broke, why fix it, right?

作为艺术工作者,我们常常陷入一个误区——即找到一个适合自己的习惯状态(以此获得朋友、同事或上级的认可),然后就畏缩其中,不愿再突破,总认为这习惯没到非改不可的地步,何必打破呢,对吧?

The difficulty with this trap is that we can become bored and begin “going through the motions.” We can begin to fall back on boring cliches time and again. Things become formulaic. Life, from which animation draws its cues, is never formulaic!

这种误区的恶果就是,我们会感到厌倦,开始“走过场”,然后陷入制作沉闷乏味的恶性循环中去。继而,工作变得像是例行公事。但要知道,生活永远都不是公式化的,而动画正是源自于生活。

Challenge Yourself

A simple way to break out of this habit is to find a way to challenge yourself. It may mean doing a short clip on your own, just a few seconds long, which really stretches your animating muscles. Something that can snap you out of “the motions” and propel you into deeper and richer animation waters. Try it out! And remember: if it’s easy then you aren’t being challenged. It should BE hard to do, that’s what makes it a challenge!

要打破这种恶习,最简单的办法就是挑战自我。可以独立做一个只持续数秒的小短片,旨在充分调动自己的动画技艺,释放自己对动画的激情;也可以做任何让你突破习惯,并激励你深入到浩瀚的动画海洋之中的事。尝试一下吧!要记住:如果觉得轻而易举,那你就没有真正挑战自我,而我们的目的就是要在困难中历练自己,只有困难才能构成挑战!

都看到这儿了,点个赞再走呗。 (/ω・\)
