Gesture Drawing
Kirilee - Gesture Drawing Write up by slyshand Handout: ANGLES featuring jagged-eye by slyshand

I'm looking for specific questions to answer in the coming weeks months that need visual clarification.

ANY question you have about animation I am willing to answer, research and / or explore.

I have a few subjects in my head to go over...

Planning - Checked off*
Breaking down an animated scene
Gesture drawing / silhouette
Facial animation

While I'm not an expert in any one of these things, I feel like creating something that can be used for reference or a starting point will help anyone who may want to.  I've been less than social over the last year or two, and I hope to fix that ^__^

Ask questions, focus my brain and I will contribute.
  • Mood: Eager
  • Listening to: Typing

  • Playing: Borderlands 2
  • Eating: Too much and Too little
  • Drinking: only a little

Thanks for reading my comment Megatron Blushes plz Can I ask you how many frames do I need to get an animation as smooth as this one?…

Forgive my english please, I'm not a genius writting in a different language ^^U

It is no problem :)

And for that one.  Harleyquinn is playing at 12 frames per second and has 16 unique frames I think.  Batman is playing at 24 frames a second but only has 8 unique frames looped.
