‘There is so much Hajime wants to say about Oikawa’s hair, but Oikawa has his scary face on and, while Hajime is certainly not intimidated, he will be crafty about this at least.

“Alright, stop,” Hajime says, in English.

“What, Iwa?” Oikawa asks, voice heavy with exasperation.

“Collaborate and listen.”’

Oikawa gets a new haircut, and Hajime is a bit of an idiot before he gets around to being a good boyfriend.

Watching a behind the scenes feature for Big Hero 6

•The voice of Aunt Cass is Griselda from Strange Magic! I now demand crossovers!

°apparently partway through production they realized the character models for Cass all resembled her main animator’s wife. His explanation was “Well I find her face very appealing!” This is adorable.

•The animators described Gogo as “a female Clint Eastwood”

•Tadashi was as much Hiro’s father figure as his older brother. Excuse me while I go weep now.

Disney Animators Study Their Reflections in Mirrors to Draw Classic Characters’ Facial Expressions

For decades, professional animators have relied on mirrors and their own facial expressions to be able to produce the dynamic, expressive characters that audiences know and love. Using themselves as models, the artists leer, grin, and grimace at their own reflections so that they can recreate the right nuances of each look on paper.

In this charming set of photos, legendary animators from the 1940s to the 1960s can be seen making hilarious faces at themselves as they sketch beloved characters like Bugs Bunny, Donald Duck, and Fred Flintstone. Working in famed studios like Walt Disney Production, Warner Bros, and Hanna-Barbera Productions, these artists brought to life many of the creations that defined the golden age of American animation, from Tom and Jerry to Lady and the Tramp.

Also included are my model sheets for Enchantress, Beta Ray Bill, and Young Thor Odinson - these three were existing costumes, but I made some tweaks to Amora.
