I think there is a room for this forum for people who wish to practice the Fundamentals of art.
Things like drawing heads, hands, and people in poses etc.
One of the biggest fundamentals in animation is the ability to do a decent bouncing ball.
The bouncing balls help us with issues projecting weight and mass.
It also helps us to fine tune our timing.
So having that in mind, lets play Ball!.
Ok here is the mini challenge:
This will be the first (of I hope will be many) exercises in the fundamentals of animation.
The rules are simple:
Do 5 animations of a bouncing ball.
But the balls have to be made of different materials
Beach Ball NEW!
Do a short animation of the ball bouncing
at the end of the challenge, post a link to your animation.
If you cant post an animation, post a link to an image sequence.
Also please don’t use any hard body dynamics engines!
Key framed entries only. NEW!
And based on some suggestions on another thread,
Please post also the MOTION GRAPH for each ball.
There is no dateline for this. Post your results on this thread and we will comment on it.
The winner of the best drawing will get a NO-PRIZE on the mail.
Have fun, and lets start the road to learn to animate well.
Also feel free to participate in any of the “older” Fundamental Challenges. The dates are unimportant.
