I’m setting out to create twenty animation sketches as a means of figuring out exactly how I want to involve animation and drawing processes in this project. Each test will focus on the movement of arms and hands and will be about 3 seconds long. I realized today that there are essentially two core qualities I want the drawings to have: 1)violent and aggressive movement, and 2) demonstrate a feeling that the movement is out of control. I’m hoping that this process of creating animation sketches will allow me to figure out how to communicate these qualities. Click on the images below to see the sketches from today, or visit my vimeo page to see all of the animation sketches.
