“This is NOT good. This movement is no good…he cannot run like this. Whoever drew this doesn’t understand it at all no matter how i tell it. How to move the muscles is the issue here. If this point were to be clearly understood, you’d see these angles of the thighs are so wrong. This reflects the creator’s personality well: Ready to get back (home) all the time…Whoever draws like this had better be dead, really. To think the amount of time a person spent making this, and the attitude towards life. That’s really what I hate the most!" - Hayao Miyazaki
I cannot imagine the shame I’d feel having one of the gods of animation literally shitting on my work while having to begrudgingly revise the entire scene in a well-known documentary. But I know the feeling dealing with revising scenes, even in storyboards. I wonder who’s work that was that he had to revise? Awesome to see Miyazaki-san in action though….
