Chainey Test - Yawn
I have story boarded a story (no kidding?) sequence for Chainey and have begun to see if I can animate him. I have chosen the yawning shot, constructed the Keys, then have done some inbetweeens to roughly get the movement something like. I bungled together a line tester setup (scanning's for suckers) and here/above is the first test.
Although I have layout paper I do need to buy some animation paper (cheaper resource) and a peg bar (better then paper clips).
What I did purchase however was an A4 LightBox from www.LightBoxUK.net which seems financially the best option over buying a proper light box (I would really like to build my own animation light box with circular rotatable peg light area). The ace thing about it is it creates a static field or something and the paper clings to the bugger. Another incentive to sensitive souls is it has that light source that stops people getting depressed from sunlight deprivation. I am grinning from ear to ear, especially when I turn it on.
Besides I am not experienced enough to warrent such vast pro expensive equipment such as a light table/box with all the trimmings.
This project is to add extra incentive to my drawing exercises prescribed by John K over at his incredible Blog. I will post some more drawings I have done from Blair's book.
