First Animation Done!
I've finally completed and uploaded an animation! Technically, it's the second animation I've ever done, but the first I get to share. It's called "Smile."
It's a basic smile, and I took twenty-four drawings done in one day and processed to make a full two-second clip.
I have actually learned quite a lot just from just brief experience. For example, I've learned to treat my key frames as a guide rather than a rule; get the main frames down, and use the inbetweens to make the flow even more smooth, fleshy, and lively. Just like playing the piano: it's not enough to know the right notes, now you have to make them flow.
I really like this process, and I really can't wait to do more complex and interesting animations.
