I worked on three more animation sketches today. Now that I’ve done a few sketches to get a feel for the medium, I was able to focus better on a specific action and sequence of motions. Click on the images below to see the sketches from today, or visit my vimeo page to see all of the animation sketches.

For the second piece below, I changed to compressed charcoal which made for a bolder look in the animation. I was surprised that the piece below is the first animation test that I think is just beginning to resemble what I’m looking for. One visual aspect that I like is the build up of marks that occurs as the animation progresses. The frantic quality that I need to achieve is just beginning to show up in the movement.
