I've been involved in a project here at work today that has required knocking out images and separating things into layers for animation.
It is fantastically tedious.
I've contented myself today with listening to a collection of lectures on the myths of ancient Greece by a brilliant fellow named Peter Meineck.
I especially like the Theseus myth. Maybe it's because I enjoy drawing minotaurs, or maybe it's because of this line from classicist Edith Hamilton, describing the moment Theseus leaps upon the Minotaur to kill it :
"As an oak tree falls crashing, so Theseus."
I've tried to use that line (or some derivation) in other situations to minimal results. Perhaps you have had better luck with it.
