The page in the book " Timing for Animation" just describes what to do and the picture you kinda decipher, I copied that and the time. And did the body pushing the arm, then added the nice slow into and snap to ease in of the elbow looping arc. The all around feel of the piece I was happy with. I love this book, really pushed poses and time that is what entertains and is totally see-able, and over powers mo-cap, what animation is all about, a pushed reality.
and on to the next

Wow.. I ran into this today, really cool clip. There is no excuse to not making it big, its all on you and on what you do. These guys have no background in business and little art knowledge, but worked hard on what they liked to do, and makes a point on learning from failure along the way.

This was copied from Tom and Jerry's " Millionaire Cat". It was alot fun to study from, I was so surprised on how wacky and outlandish creative the poses they came up with in these shows, I will be collecting some more. This was like 50 frames and to comic precision, this was a real honor and a treat. More to come, also checking in with the goal strivers out there half a year already, hope you have made a dent and have done plenty to get you further in life, Let's end this year with a bang on the second half. Yippee!

Okay, 450 frames the marathon of shots. Thought I'd test my stamina on this, gonna break it up in sections and jump around to have fluid transitions. Really, just dove in and let this evolve, made my reference vid and really got in the moment. This is the checkpoint for crits, then onto more Breakdowns, Extremes, Plussing and Revisions called out on.

This is one of the best interviews I've seen. That clearly points out how to get from point A to point Z of hardwork, determination, dedication on what it takes how to reach your dreams. Breaking it down from levels, His working 9am - 5pm and to 5pm - 2am( self mastery). I have to give it a shot. Mine is a bit different 8am - 5pm regular job and self mastery 6pm to 10pm plus early 4 am to 6 am ( still not steady but now it will be) and weekends are tentative for socializing to add to my animation( the lived life).
But It's total actual animation hands on practice time is what counts. We shall see where this can lead us. Make the time to practice, it could be an hour a day but if you look back in a later time it does accumulate. Keep Smashin.. And Happy FREEDOM DAY!
