Adding The Final 10%
In this lecture Kenny Roy took a shot that a student animated & labelled as final, and he pushed it further by
adding an extra polish pass here & there, subtle anticipation, smooth arks.. etc
Here is some quick tips I got from the lecture:
- Step away from the shot for a while then come back with a fresh eye, write your notes, be critical to your work.
- Always observe the center of gravity in your characters.
- Hide the legs & work on the body/waist first, then go back to the legs.
- Twinning of feet or arms (in timing & posing) is a bad thing to have in animation, avoid it as much as possible!
