so very many paths this animation could go in. D: I don't think anything I've tried before had so many options. ...of course, I'm going to end up picking the worst possible option and it'll look like cardboard cutouts instead of characters.
hm... maybe I should remove this status update thing. I get the feeling I'm starting to abuse it: "I'm bored - I think I'll talk about it."
Ack. I just cut the back of my ring finger because I accidentally held an x-acto knife like a pencil (when not using).
This is probably going to be bad come Monday when I want to work on my animation study. >_<

Animation study - Week Thirteen

Mon Jan 26, 2015, 6:59 AM

well... I kind'a skipped week twelve. Oops. It was supposed to be about animating on one's and two's, one's being 24 images a second and two's being each image showed twice to make 12 images a second (but it's still 24 frames per second). Animation's usually on two's (half the drawings, and it can kind'a visually speed up an action), but it will switch to one's for actions hard to show on two's or for when the camera moves (like a pan) because the camera always moves on one's and it would look weird if the character doesn't move with the camera.
But this week is about straight ahead (drawing pic 1, 2, 3, etc) and pose to pose (drawing pic 1, 6, 3, etc). I tend to like the certainty of pose to pose, but I've played with straight ahead action a few times during the past weeks.

Jan. 26th
Week 13: Straight ahead and pose to pose
    Study and understand this principle.
    Think of one animation that would use straight ahead action, one animation that would use pose to pose, and one animation that would use both.
    Animate using both styles, either within one animation or in two separate ones.
    Explain why the style was chosen for each animation. What could have happened if the opposite method was used for each animation? Did your animation(s) turn out the way you wanted? Why or why not?
    Which method do you prefer, and why?
