super powerful kung fu jump from Frankie Swan on Vimeo.
This week we were asked to complete a follow through exercise, which essentially meant animating a ball bouncing up and down with a tail attached to it. We were also asked to animate an anticipation gag that included some stretch and squash principles. Our layout to follow was a man jumping onto a diving board then falling into water.
I was kinda fed up of balls from last week so I created this character whose head is basically a ball. I then combined the two separate exercises into this rough animation, which adds a lil twist to the diving board. I did have more elaborate scenes planned, but in the end this was the best i could do with the four days of animating i had to complete the task.
However i was really pleased that it got a few laughs and a wonderful response at the crit.
