Exercise Mom 6 (and animation)
Here's a sketch continuing the "Exercise Mom" series. While sketching this I decided to give the bottom half of the drawing a little animation. It started out as a happy little accident as I was just playing around with the animation settings in Photoshop. I had no idea what I was doing at first, but as I continued to mess around with it the easier it was to use.
Below is the rough animation I generally started with (click on the image to see the animation):
Then I added more details to each frame:
As you can see things are still in the rough stages. I haven't decided yet if I want to add in more frames to cushion it a little or to make it seem more fluid. It was interesting animating in photoshop. I found it a little easier to deal with than using flash, purely because my lines don't change so much when I draw on a new frame (if that makes any sense).
I think I'll animate a little more in photoshop just for the fun of it. I will still be experimenting in flash, of course, if I ever plan to make a longer animated loop or movie.
