I often rely on this hippo to share my thinking approach to animation when making live demo. (This one was made at The Animation Workshop, Denmark.)
To address animation mechanics in timely manner, I ended up doing jumps a lot. Though it might appear repetitious, but it isn’t. Every jump has its own life and yields its own textures, just as no two leaves are exactly alike.
For certain, one’s inner mood at time of creating is always different, and its conditions will subconsciously reflect through things one does.
For me, being in touch from this perspective will bring about fresh and relevant animated movements, regardless of the sometimes repetitious surface nature.
(One thing with live demo, I never have enough time to take it to completely tie-down; so this post, in part, is for all my new friends from the two recent trips to Hawaii and Denmark. You can read more on my tie-down thought process from here and here.)
And here, the colors of autumn in Viborg.
