Here’s the full participation for the Robin Williams’ Genie Collaboration! To see that many people take part and contribute, truly amazing! :) Thanks zimeta for the invitation and allowing others to take part. :)
Mine is on the third row (down), second drawing. Enjoy everyone!

Hey Anon! I really enjoy doing clean up animation, especially in Toon Boom, as it allows me to learn more of the software, and get to get better in time managing.
There are times where I would find trouble doing clean up, because the rough animations may be too rough to figure out the scene. The best thing to do is ask the supervising animator or director for assistance. Definitely ask them, you will save time for them and yourself from doing work that might get rejected later.
The other challenges for clean up are keeping the characters on model, and pushing the animation a bit more. Not all the roughs are drawn on model, and sometimes the roughs will not animate all the specific details of the character(s). Sometimes. Thankfully, I practiced for years of drawing other people’s styles, so it really helps me when I do clean up and keep the style consistent. For the extra stuff, I go back and ask the animators about it if I feel stuck.
It’s a fun, but challenging task. But seeing the end results is worth doing the job. :) Thanks for asking, I hope this helps you out! Feel free to ask again if you have any other questions on animation.
Just finished this. Robin has done a lot of characters and acts, but the one character I’ll never forget him is the Genie from Disney’s Aladdin. Explosive, energetic, with warmth and depth, he clearly could not be duplicated, and proved we’ll never have a friend like him.
Every time. On Facebook, twitter, tumblr, in person (yes I have done it at work), at home, and even at church.
You explain the intent of killing to a 9 year old child after watching The Lion King or other Disney films where characters want to have someone else dead (The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Little Mermaid, Frozen, The Princess and the Frog, etc.). Disney and other animation storytellers find ways to bring complexity into a simple story…that ain’t just for kids.
Sup! This is MrContro (or Mistah C)! Welcome to my sketch tumblr, where I sketch and maybe rant on some things (animation, life, or movies). Hope the work inspires you, or at least entertain ya for the day.
