I admit that i know this PLANNING is very important for animation. But after this training i found out i can't animate without PLANNING. It is true! PLANNING is my friend now.
PLANNING let me clear my mind. Be confident, comfortable on what i should key. The most important thing is i know what i am doing on my key frame. Then i can break them easily later on. Break the rules. Exaggerate it! I got to get back my drawing skills! *Although it is not super good =)
Here is my PLANNING for my animation.
Cat Vanilla Walk Cycle.
Cat Walk Cycle Animation (Before)
In this version it's my first trial. A lot of mistakes there. Timing, body mechanics, stiffness and etc. Later on i need to fix these mistakes. Then i have a polish version.
