Okay, so here is my second run at class 2. My advice was given that, in order to understand the principle of animation, you must keep it simple, and apply what you know to it gradually, and from there, you can improve and better yourself.
I'm in my first blocking pass where all my keys are stepped, so I could get an overall feel of timing, and spacing. I'm doing a hopscotch animation of Ballie, and from the reference video from last week, and doing the action myself, I've used my planning drawings and started out with clear, strong poses.
Here's my animation of Ballie playing hopscotch:
After my Q&A, this morning I looked at my e-critique online, and I'm very happy with the direction I'm heading. I'm also thrilled at the explanation Leigh gave me on my breakdown poses for spacing, and I'm off to more animating!
