“Believe in your character. Animate (or write) with sincerity.”

This isn't really an original by me, I just put it together. Currently using for my facebook cover pic.

I am such a huge fan of Glen Keane, I absolutely love everything about his work. Even if you don't know who he is, absolutely everyone will have experienced the joy, the wonder and the magic of each and every one of the characters he brought to life. I've been mesmerised by his unique style of drawing for many years, the thought process behind their development, the inspirations behind them, the details and pragmatics that emanate from within. And in the simplest of forms too.

Glen Keane continues to be a great inspiration to me, and I hope that one day I too can contribute to the world of animation as he did.
I'm a little upset he's not working for disney anymore, but he had his reasons.....................:iconcryforeverplz:


Thank You Glen Keane, for shaping an era of Disney Magic.



 

All sketches are the works of Glen Keane, the animated pic of Glen was created by Jin Kim (Frozen, Tangled) and all were edited by me.

I love Glen Keane so much! He's my all time favourite animator... I got to choose an artist to study in 3D art, and I chose him. Such a remarkable man, and I'll always miss his work for Disney :)

I'll miss his contributions from time to time since he had been working with Disney since the late 70s, though I'm wishing him luck on his future works. Let's hope WDAS just invite him back at least for special events & cons, so he and current and past people can give plenty of good lectures and advice to budding artists. ^_^

But yeah, I've been reading The Art of Tangled (Which I bought several weeks ago and is my first ever Disney Artbook) for a while now and been amoured by his works on Rapunzel and been wanting to capture some tiny essence of it in my fanart in some way.

At least his style of character drawings have been passed over to the likes Kim Jin & Steve Thompson. ;)

Totally agree, I've been reading through the same book too over and over hoping to get into the Disney mindset.
