Animation Toolkit : Animation & Character Exercises
On our first meeting with Meg we used a praxinoscope. Here we drew ten frames on a circular piece of paper then span the wheel to see our drawings move. From this exercise I have learnt to consider the speed of something, how fast or slow do I want my object/subject to move? I know ten frames isn't even half a second but it still puts into perspective how many drawings and how much detail is necessary.
This is my zoetrobe. It is a simple clock with the hand going around. I think drawing this simple object has worked effectively and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
