I like comics. You'll see a lot of that here. I like Disney. You'll also see a lot of that here.

Glen Keane’s 7 Animation Essentials
1. Make a Positive Statement
- Do not be ambiguous in your approach.
- Thumbnail until you have that clear approach and conviction.
- Be bold and decisive.
2. Animate From the Heart
- Feel your drawings.
- Let your action be an extension of how you believe the character feels.
- Put yourself in the place of the character your animating- associate.
3. Make Expressions and Attitudes Real and Living
- Focus on the eyes and eyebrows, mouth and cheeks.
- Always lead with the eyes.
- Be sure the eyes are solid and placed securely in the head.
- Study your own attitudes. Ask yourself, “Does this drawing feel the way my face feels?”
4. Draw As If You Were Sculpting
- Describe the forms in dimension.
- Understand the character design in 3D.
5. Animate the Forces
- Allow the momentum of and already animated movement to suggest the next drawing.
- Draw the leading edge of forces.
6. Visualize and Feel Dialogue
- Be sure you are truly capturing the inflection, volume and tone of the dialog with proper mouth shapes.
- What is the essence of your scene, your action, your expression — what is indispensable in communicating your thought?
These rules apply to ANY character artist, animated or otherwise. The Gospel of Glen.
Apart from being a very cool project this raises a few thoughts…
What IF Clark Kent looked African American? How would he deal with being an alien and seeing people who look like him being persecuted simply for the color of their skin? What if Steve Rogers was an African American soldier, fighting against the blond-haired blue eyed Aryan ideal? And what if Peter Parker was a smart African American kid, fighting for the common man?
