Infinity Mickey and gang

Mickey is such a hard character to get right. Even the smallest mistakes can make him look wrong, so adding our own stylistic twist was a challenge. Luckily, we had Jason Kim. I did the version on the left and I was feeling pretty good about how close I came, but then Jason managed to push it further and make him way more appealing at the same time.

I did a version of Minnie, that once again was improved remarkably by a Jason draw-over. My fixed version after the draw-over on the right---I'd include the draw-over but it was a little messier and i'm not sure if Jason wants it shown off :) .
We toyed for a little while with doing Donald and Mickey from the youtube shorts, but the idea didn't even make it to the prototyping phase.

  1. Oh well, this show us the importance of a friendly feedback for any work, right? If even the great Sam Nielson needs some feedback at work, just imagine the importance of that for us beginners. Thank you for sharing your knowledge day by day with us, Sam!

    1. Yes, there is never a time when feedback will not help you. Of course it helps to have talented people giving that feedback, but gems of usefulness can be found in even a layperson's feedback (I usually tell students, "Ignore what the person is telling you to do, try to find out the core concern that spurred that feedback. Because anybody can sense when something is wrong."

    1. Thanks for pointing it out. She says clearly she didn't make the tutorial, so I'm not sure where she got it from or who's claiming credit for it.
