    Animation help?

    Post by CaiMelon on Sat Feb 01, 2014 5:39 pm



    This is my first attempt on animating something. Any pointers? I know it is rough and short but I couldn't think of anything else to do.

    That's pretty good. I don't have any real tips, according to how you animate though.

    It depends on the motion you are trying and what's going on in the animation. If you were aiming for a head turn, score, you got it. If you were wanting them to turn around in amazement/confusion/shock...weeeell some more frames and bigger motion will be needed. Here are a few examples of some rough and finished animations that seem to be similar to the motion you were creating (again, just going out on a limb here based on the info provided by you. If I'm giving too much well, better more then nothing I suppose.)



    I like this one because of the "rebound" animation as I call it, something that I do quite frequently for a more smooth and eye-appealing animation. It's where the character extends farther then the intended resting point, but then "rebounds" back/forward to where the end frame is, making it look almost bouncy.



    This one isn't as detailed, but its smoother and the rebound is less obvious. I actually like the movement better than the old man.



    This is my favorite, combining the detail of the first example and the movement of the second. It also has a nice stretch on the shocked facial expression for a really smooth and almost undetectable rebound.

    ~~~

    I hope some of this helped! I was also thinking of anyone else who stumbled to this topic, so I just thought I'd throw in a few extra details~ If you're interested in practicing, here are 51 great animation exercises to do: http://misscaptainalex.wordpress.com/animation/51-animation-exercises/

    Thanks for all of the resources! I was trying to go for a simple head turn. I skimmed the animator's survival guide and wanted to see if I could try animating for my fanime thing. Thanks again!

    Looking good. I'd say there may be one more frame needed between the resting position of the head and the frame before that, but other then that the motion is nice and I like the hair movement.
