I watched the Blackfish documentary last week and I couldn’t find the words. Just heartbreaking.
"Many of us have experienced the excitement and awe of watching 8,000 pound orcas, or "killer whales," soar out of the water and fly through the air at sea parks, as if in perfect harmony with their trainers. Yet, in our contemporary lore this mighty black and white mammal is like a two-faced Janus-beloved as a majestic, friendly giant yet infamous for its capacity to kill viciously. Blackfish unravels the complexities of this dichotomy, employing the story of notorious performing whale Tilikum, who-unlike any orca in the wild-has taken the lives of several people while in captivity. So what exactly went wrong?”

I vividly remember a few moments from when I was growing up that - as corny as it sounds, felt like they’d altered my life a little bit. One was when I was six years old and I watched The Little Mermaid for the first time and the other: Sailor Moon when I was 13. I can’t even describe how much they blew my young mind and I’m sure they’re some of the biggest influences that nudged me into art.
leesha-h asked: Hi Charlie! I am enrolled in your Skillshare class and SUPER EXCITED because I think the content is released today!! ^_^ anyway I had a random question - do you paint your pictures in black and white THEN add colour? It seems to be a popular way to do things but I have never done it, and am not sure how?
Hi. That’s awesome! It’s released today, oh god! I’m nervous XD
Yes, not all of the time, but a lot of the time. I’ll start in black and white and then add colour. The class demo is in black and white as I’m just focusing on character design, but if it goes down well and people are interested I’d be happy to cover taking something B&W to colour. Guess we’ll see how that one goes!
