Animation Blog 5 - The Principles of Animation
Rules, rules, rules - who needs’em? Well friends, even professionals rely on the most basic of principles to help them to keep their work strong. For the backbreaking (and yet incredibly fun and rewarding) field of animation, those principles are;
1. Squash and Stretch - because if you move fast enough, hitting a wall will squish you a little and the recovery from that hit plus the momentum will stretch you back out to your proper volume.
2. Anticipation - the movement that leads into the rest of your animation.
3. Staging - the way the shot/composition is set-up to be seen.
4. Straight-Ahead Action and Pose to Pose - a solid planning of your sequence.
5. Follow Through and Overlapping Action - Like those awesome waves made in big sports crowds!
6. Slow in and Slow out - because nothing moves or stops anywhere without momentum building up or slowing down (unless it slams into a wall of course).
7. Arcs - because just about every movement is made in an arc/curves, like when your arm swings back and forth or a dog wags his tail. Find the hidden figure 8!
8. Secondary Action - because if it has “limbs” or other extremities, they don’t all move at the same time.
9. Timing - the right emphasis on the right syllable
10. Exaggeration - because life really isn’t THAT interesting :-) so make it fun!
11. Solid Drawing - remember, sketch it all out, then build from that foundation
12. Appeal - because it’s gotta just look good!
Keep these 12 principles in mind and your work will continue to look it’s best and shine through to a new level of enjoyment, not just for the viewers, but also for YOU as the artists.
