Welcome to Gaia! ::

Hey guys. I got a fun idea for a topic. XD

What shots or angles do you absolutely dread drawing? Not just for scenery, but if there's an angle you hate drawing characters at or whatever.

For me, it's any interior to an extremely detailed structure. Architecture is not my strong point, to say the least. So, when I have to draw a shot like THIS I am hiding under the covers for dread.

I am trying to think of it as a high level monster. If I can just conquer it, I'll get a ton of EXP. xd

-Extreme perspective
-Architecture.
-Clutter. Some of my characters are slobs or magic-users that need lots of books and components...or magic-using slobs. D<

Slow moving, dramatic scenes. They seem to make me very disinterested for some reason, or I just really hate drawing them. If the angles aren't right or the emotions aren't drawn well, the whole page falls apart, so I take way too long on them.

Top-down or Ground-up perspectives.
Buildings in general.

Anything with people, because I usually end up making the heads too small. Animals I can do relatively OK and for buildings I just break out a protractor and a ruler.
Anything with explosions or horses. An exploding horse would be the worst.
Anything involving a ground angle. I'm horrible with feet and shoes :l Such foreign objects to me.

...I now want to draw or commission a picture of an exploding horse.

Also, I hate drawing backgrounds and perspective from a low viewpoint. (Did that last part make sense? Like the camera is pointing up at someone from the ground)
I would love to see how the fat pony that Beatonna draws, would explode all in sudden. Something so montypythonisque about it.

I might be then the odd ball, who rather likes the extreme challenges. I mean, I'm not good with drawing natural textures or scenery, yet I don't fear to bite the bullet. I rather wait in fear, when I need to draw all the "plain portrait/head shot"-panels. I've got one story on hold because I try to find the motivation to draw those exact shots in it, yet...aaargh, they are just so damn boring!
I attempt to do different shot, but just fail at it. XP On the other hand, I try to make really expressive faces and body language so maybe that sort of makes up for it. Probably not.

That is indeed quite impressive, but it is no match for...MY HORSE!
