However, I asked the questions be tailored more for story because I don't consider myself a character designer. Character design is really, really hard and there are a LOT more men and women leagues more talented than me. Check out Joe Moshier, Shiyoon Kim, Nico Marlet, Tony Fucile, Jin Kim, Bill Schwab, Brittney Lee, Chen Yi Chang, and Dexter Smith just to name a few.
I had a rare opportunity to pitch a movie outline to a group of men that included Steve Jobs a couple of years ago. This was after he had returned from medical leave so he didn't say a lot but greeted me kindly. He sure seemed like a really good man. He was an incredible champion for animation and design and a pioneer in technology. My heart goes out to his family.
