This is a picture of an animation studio using drawing tablets (presumably a Wacom Cintiq 13HD), another form of creating animation with computers. They are all respectively working on a piece of animation like the background, rigging, and other jobs.
This tells you about some basics like walk cycles, keyframes, and character designs and links to what they mean. It tells you about about different animation types like 2d, 3d, cel, or stop motion. For my case, i will use cel animation. This might require us of items like light desks and other tools for cel animation. This should keep you learning more about animation.
Animatics are the using of storyboards, putting them in a video editing software, adding audio, and making those images seem like they are moving, or basically a very rough pre production animation to see how it will go. It is useful because it helps people on the production with timing of a scene the team is working on.
This teaches you how to make a flipbook animation out of materials you can find at home! You start by getting some thick paper to stack on top of each other or get a spare notebook, and start with the first picture on the bottom page. Then, look back on the previous picture or “frame” and continue moving the picture slightly. Repeat these steps and soon you will have a competed animation.
This video by youtube animator Alan Becker shines light on 12 principles that he and many others think animations should use. He lists techniques such as Squash and stretch, Exaggeration, and follow through. These techniques will greatly improve your animation by a huge margin.
