Assignment 1 - Bouncing Ball


3 February 2017 at 08:00:09 MST

Ball bouncing exercise for my Animation class.
Next week we're gonna animate jello cubes. Ahaha
54 frames in total.

I received critique on this on Tuesday. The room was silent and my teacher said it was pretty great and replayed it multiple times and sometimes paused and went by frame-by-frame to observe the individual frames. He finally let it play a few more times and said, "It's almost reminds me of a minnow or a frog.. This is really great though." or something along those lines. The class got a few giggles out of that, even I did! Haha!
But yeah, that wasn't something I hadn't noticed when I had observed it at a first glance. If I were to do this project again, I'd put less emphasis on the way it hits the ground as it keeps bouncing to give it more of the feeling of a ball and less of the feeling of a hopping creature by also using a little less of squash and stretch technique.
That's all I gotta say as far as self-critique goes.

((This was done on paper with a 0.7mm mechanical pencil and put together with Adobe After Effects.))
