A super quick trick for drawing draped fabric that my art teacher taught me in high school.
THIS IS HOW IT’S DONE

Hello! I'm sorry if this seems like an odd question, but how is that you animate so quickly? I suppose I'm referring more so to your little gifs as opposed to a film project -- I mean, despite them being little gifs, the animation in them is always pretty fleshed out, and colored, even! Ahh! Is there more to it than loosening up your drawings and practice?
Hmm… I just kinda draw fast, really. And definitely I’ve gotten waaaaaay faster as I learn and improve at animation and posing/timing choices become more second nature to me.
Although I will say that even my most simple gifs (like the tails one or star fox one) still take me at least 2 hours for a hundred or so frame colored animation on 2s. With my really quick animations I usually don’t even thumbnail anything and just keep everything pretty rough, but usually my process for lineless animation is:
Inbetweens (and color- this is two steps)
and then my lines, backgrounds, shading, clean-up, and compositing
For animation WITH lineart I usually line all my thumbnails and in-between from there, then color. But especially with faster animation my lines are pretty rough!
Hope that helps?
Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked
Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.
Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!
I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.“

6 Color Scheme ToolsCOLORlovers
The biggest resource community for colour palettes as well as patterns. Plus points that they spell “colour”correctly my British way.Kuler
From Adobe it pretty much works the same way as COLORlovers where you also create your own schemes or edit others accordingly.Colorotate
This site is a little more interactive and fun with the 3D elements. In addition there are few fun mixing/blending options.Color Scheme Designer
The Wheel! A great resource for creating schemes as well options for “light-er” or “dark-er” versions.Pictaculous
There are a few picture-to-colours applications but this is my favourite as, in my opinion, its most accurate. In addition to finding you colours from an image you’ve uploaded, it suggests other similar colour schemes from Colourlovers and Kuler. You can also download swatch files which I find useful.Color Palette Generator (DeGraeve.com)
