    Thank you so much for half a million subscribers. I hope this video strikes a balance between helpful and entertaining. I encourage everyone with the faintest interest in animation to try out this process, it's really fun and unique. It's okay to steal my style outright, imitation is flattery and the greatest jumping off point for finding your own style. Links in the description to everything you'll need! Much love

    Not sure how much attention the comments are getting at this point...But I'm running the EBSynth Beta and it's taking about 2 hours on average to Synth about 120 frames. Any ideas of how to speed it up? I assume the problem lies with my 2015 Mac pro.

    I believe a key credential that identifies a true artist is the willingness to share the methods behind techniques. Imagine how many artists of the past kept personal "trade secrets" that are now basically permanently lost to time, and contrast that with what happens when an artist shares methods and we see art as a concept benefit because of how art itself most naturally functions as a collaborative human effort.

    Dude, awesome video, I am a 'couch content creator' and as I'm sure you know whether it's github for programming or vids like these or how to Garageband vids or how to Blender pixel art... I just love how most of us creators help each other. So many people are talented and are lacking either resources or time, as you said, everyone should be allowed to make art. Everyone! You shouldn't be limited by the fact you don't have a production team to whip around or a sleazeball Money Lord to back you. Love the sentiment here! Saving this, and if I ever have a video or video game project and end up rotoscoping something, totally throwing you credit. Much love Joel!
