Notes on Character Animation

Neropure_14_July_C_3

Character animation is the art of endowing a personality to a character according to the tasks at hand using the guiding principles of animation.”

“The most important element of character animation is rhythm. The upper movement of a body should align with the lower body movements. The primary action should be woven seamlessly with the secondary action.

We must pay special attention to the shift in the environment due to the changing motion of the characters. These small details matter.”
Aayushi Sharma (Animator)

“Real world reference videos are helpful in replicating the same movements in the fictional environment. Recording motion or referring to Youtube videos are great sources towards logical understanding.

And of course timing and spacing are important nuances to focus on.”
Himanshu Bassi (Animation)

A story called “Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar” by Fantastic 4

In the far land of Fudge Cake, an ordinary marshmallow was challenged by the Major.
He was to prove his worth by braving the ravages of time, atop Marshmallow Tower.

But ours was an ambitious marshmallow.
“Oh…this is easy. A cakewalk!” said he, tragically, thinking not of Spaghetti sticks and their fragility.
So he began with zeal and dreams of the crown, but overconfidence and haste pulled him down.

Though the Major Support System- Tape, Thread and Scissors-aided him well. At the last moment his tower gave and, humbled, to the ground he fell.

Now no one would sing him songs of praise, for arrogance had him beat. Still he would achieve some measure of success, not admit defeat. He would not soon forget these painful trials-taking care, testing himself at every stage. And while he couldn’t reach the heights he desired, our Marshmallow had, indeed, come of age.
