Jacob Gardner Specificity in Character

Once again I've run across it and feel compelled to re inscribe it. This time from Jacob Gardner on the Speaking of Animation blog.

Don't just animate "some dude". Putting a white coat on your guy just makes him "some dude" in a white coat. If he's supposed to be a Dr. at the end of his shift, he's going to pick up a clipboard with a familiarity and probably tiredness that a patient would not handle it in that way.

*he's got an update with photos
