Drawing for animation & 12 Principles of Animation
On monday, we started our first assignment in the Animation Desk app. Students should work this week to finish it up if they haven’t already. We spent most of our time in class getting comfortable with the app, so I wanted to reiterate the assignment once again.
We are animating a box, sphere or cylinder anticipating down, then jumping up into the air, landing on the ground, then bouncing off screen. Below you will see the main poses of the actions. Students will need to add the in between drawings to get the motion looking smooth. You might have a total of around 20-40 drawings in this action. Please see the diagram below which you can follow for your animation.
