Animation: Drawing Plans For Animation
So after researching all those cat gifs, I decided that I wanted to do an animation based on a critter who was curious of an object which all of a sudden gets freaked out by the object making a sudden change.
Keeping in mind some animation principal notes which are:
- Squash & Stretch
- Straight ahead and pose to pose
- Follow through and overlapping animation
- Slow in and slow out
- Secondary action
- Solid drawing
I wanted to make sure I covered as many of these as I could with it still feeling believable.
This is what I came up with for understanding when I want a beat to happen in my animation as well as some finer detail concepts to help show the arcs of movement and timing.
