Animation - The very basics that we do
This clip contains some of the very basic exercises in animation that I did during my second year at NID. From walk cycles to small clips containing studies of squirrel and cat movements, to elements like fire and water, everything is compiled here, and looped thrice, for a critical overview.
The interesting thing to note, would be that in some of the exercises, we partnered with a batchmate, to exchange in betweens and keyframes, for our respective animations, hence getting a first hand experience of in betweening somebody else's drawings.
Needless to say, these are line tests of hand drawn animation. Would look a little crude, but the objective was to capture the motion.
