Relentless: Clubber Lang

Be relentless in pursuit of your goal! In our storyboarding class today, we studied the importance of "the villain" in a story. The villain dictates everything in a story and is responsible for the pacing and our heroes reaction. In Rocky III, Mr. T displays one of the greatest performances in playing Clubber Lang, one of the greatest villains in movie history. For most villains, we see through their actions how evil they are when we see them kill and or lie. Clubber is different, he portrays relentlessness, anger, hunger, and to top it all off, he's the greatest trash talker of all time...we love to hate this guy...and HE makes this movie. Nice work Mr. T if you read this!

I found this youtube compilation of Clubber Lang which I found entertaining. Enjoy!

Pose Maniacs

Evelyn recommended an online resource that we can use to sharpen our lifedrawing skills. Remember that lifedrawing is a prerequisite for any animation career and that to do well in it, you must practice often. If you go to this site, scroll down the left hand column and click the "30 sec. Pose" link. Poses will cycle every 30 seconds, but you could adjust the time to whatever you like. The images also show anatomy, this is a great resource. Go to the site by clicking here: http://www.posemaniacs.com/blog/pose/
