Hyojin Bae

Went through some awesome work today from Hyojin Bae. She's a korean student studying at Calarts (one of the best animation universities in the states). Her work is as good as any professionals. I went through pages of it, and it wasn't enough. 2 hours on her wonderful tumblr blog, and I kept thinking - how does one get so good? What Alok said was so right. Her work had some great understanding of anatomy, gesture and expression, but what was standing out was the pure emotion in it - the imagination, the craziness, and the beauty in the world perceived from her eyes.

I can only hope to stay true to myself, and work on my skills just so that I can draw my mind instead of speaking it. I don't think good work will ever stop existing as long as there are wonderful people. Cheers to Hyojin Bae!

Here's some of her wonderful work:

"In the past, I have made no secret of my disdain for Chef Gusteau’s famous motto: Anyone can cook. But I realize that only now do I truly understand what he meant. Not everyone can become a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere." - Anton Ego, Ratatouille.

The Greedy Pencil

This blog is a collection of (some of) my work, the art I do for fun, my inspirations and the sweat that goes into making animated films. Enjoy!
