generic is good

"Generic is good for study.
If you are trying to teach yourself the principles of good cartoon drawing for example, it's best to study bland cartoons that don't have individual style. Strong style will distract your attention away from the underlying principles that are more important."

yeah, wow, interesting.

'...NEVER use your own character designs when you are learning to animate.
It will slow your progress.
Use characters that were designed by top Hollywood professionals that already work in 3 dimensions and are simple. You will progress much faster that way.'

so THAT's what i've been doing wrong. I'm going to find a porky pig model sheet right now.
