W26: Animation Principles

3.1 Applying basic animation principles

Create a character. This character can be a letter, a person, an animal or any type of illustration, use your imagination. This character will play the main role in your animation.

Take this character and draw it in five different exaggerated poses. In each of these poses the character has to express some kind of emotion (like love, anger, dislike, distaste, happiness and so on). Keep the animation principles in mind when you draw your character.

Please scan your drawings and upload it to your WordPress blog.

I created a character that has got a circular shape. The shape changes whenever the mood changes, such as when the character is very happy it bounces and stretches, but when the character is angry it gets more flat. When the character is scared it gets smaller, and when it is in love it gets really big.
