This was another blog post by the Disney artist Chris Oatley, which was done a little while ago now but still of course holds great importance. This may be a strange blog post from a person that is so adamant about certain approach’s and techniques, but I still understand that that is not everything. Within this blog post it clears up a lot of premises of technique and what that really means, how to expand on this and what it can do to aid you later.
In short terms, don’t fall into the trap of thinking technique is the be all and end all. You can learn so much more and there are so many ways to do one thing, observe, learn and grow.
