~Bouncing Ball Animation~

I was scrolling around on tumblr when I saw a post linking to a list things to animate at different levels. Of course, I felt like this goes well with my ideaFM, project so I’m thinking of doing all of the Level 1 exercises by the end of the week.

Here is the link: http://www.animatorisland.com/51-great-animation-exercises-to-master/

I’ve actually done a few of them already but I really wish I found this earlier. Then I could have based my project on doing all of the exercises. Oh well… ヽ(o`皿′o)ノ

That being said, today I did the “Ball Bouncing across the screen.” As usual, I will start from the sketch to the completed animation.





 *These pictures don’t really seem like animations since I didn’t save frame-by-frame. Rather, this is the general motion.

Sketch Animated:


Lined Animated:


And Final Animation!


The final animation may be a little different in timing since my usual animating program doesn’t allow more than one color. -__-“

Overall, this is generally the easiest animation test but I am not too good at it haha. It’s not very smooth and I don’t really know how to shade correctly. However, I can only blame myself since I did this fairly quickly (around 10 minutes) and didn’t do much research on how balls work (wah wah).

I hope it looks kinda cool though? ಥ⌣ಥ

On the bright side, here’s another drawing process gif. At least I know what I’m doing for these LOL.

  1. You could certainly see your skills within the work you write. The world hopes for more passionate writers like you who arent afraid to say how they believe. Always follow your heart. egkeeedgckbc

  2. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Outstanding work! adbbfkgeeegg
