Using Strong Graphics, Smears and Snappy Timing to Cartoon your Character.
In this 2-hour lecture/demo, animator Ken Fountain (Monsters Vs. Aliens, Megamind, Shrek Forever After, Kung Fu Panda 2, Puss In Boots, The Peanuts Movie) walks you through how he approaches a snappier style of animation; exploring extreme force, pushed timing, smeared breakdowns, and all the entertaining and descriptive elements of a clean cartoony shot. “Describing” broad and appealing movement and communicating the character’s clear intent is the task at hand in this demo, and there are tons of helpful little lessons and screen-captured examples to take you through it step-by-step. And a fun little shot produced by the end!Watch the Teaser Video!
