Don't bet on the horses.

Just kidding. Draw every chance you get. Draw all the time. Study life drawing and anatomy. Practice, practice, practice.

People e-mail me all the time and ask what kind of software they should get to do animation. Get a pencil, lots of punched paper, and a light table or animation disc. Good animation doesn't come from machines or software. It comes from people who have studied life drawing for years, and who have practiced the art of creating the illusion of life.

I can't teach you how to draw. You have to do that yourself. I could, perhaps, teach you to animate if you knew how to draw. It's the basics, over and over again. Do I sound like a broken record yet?
