Here is a quick animation sequence that I did.
It's all from scratch, no reference, no rotoscoping.
I animated on 'twos', that is 12 fps. This is the standard for most japanese animation full-length features like Mononoke Hime for example so I want to go with that as well.
I still haven't given up my idea about doing a fleshed out animation shortfilm, so I am doing some practicing now.
It's hard but also fun!
This was done in a nice little prog called ' Plastic Animation Paper '. I added some frame blending in After Effects and outputted to a flash film. Sorry, not the best quality... :/
As for the sequence itself: I didn't really know what I was doing, just random actions. Lets just pretend the ball was pulled back by some invisible force in the end...
