Hello Proko community! What are the best resources/ classes I should be looking at or taking to one day make it in the entertainment industry. Specifically animation (prop, storyboard, character) My question was recently featured in the most recent episode of Draftmen (section titled too many resources.) Anyone who saw this episode knows I was given a homework assignment to ask my question here, thanks @Stan Prokopenko & @Marshall Vandruff once again. Thank you to the community for your time

Got here after watching the podcast haha! To quote a reasonably famous youtuber: it depends. Seriously tho, a course that i might love the vibe off might totally miss the mark for you. I started out doing the Watts online thing with Brian Knox, which i love for fundamentals of head / figure. Then took dynamic sketching on CGMA which got me into creating stuff, then moved into Schoolism which is where i go to at the moment, and this place right here. Another one i have to mention is Villpu's classes on New Masters, his appoach is very interesting and you can see the same approach being used in a lot of the disney sketches. I guess thats my list of favorite courses and places, hope that helps.

Your response definitely did help! It confirmed at least what Stan was saying in the podcast, I have seen most of your suggestions come up A LOT ( all of them a few times but often times Schoolism, Watts, and CGMA.) Right now I am working through DrawaBox, but I will definitely be checking these out once I finish a DaB (Wish I had more time to do more than 1 course at a time 😥) Follow up: I would love to see some of your creations !

Best resource? Oof, I’m going to have to say your eyes. Copy professional animation, copy life, just pencil to paper all the time. Then post for critique! Out of all the books and video lessons I have hoarded, nothing has made a stronger impact on my progress than by just making something and then reflecting, daily, then double daily, etc. As for specifics, I’m fairly certain the best resources you can find on any artistic topic is here through Proko, Aaron Blaise, or any Youtuber you’re willing to give 5 minutes to. I hope this helped!

Thank you for your response, I am going to go off topic and ask if you have any recommendations when it comes to reflection? I try to reflect on my pieces and see what is good and what is not good but it does not work for me. for example: I come up with "this line is off." and can't figure out out why it is off and how to fix that issue for next time.
