Clay Ball Timing Test

Another test for timing & spacing in stopmo. This one is a lot better than the other first two, despite hands and gauges in the frames. This is so much fun, and even more so when it works!



I've been re-reading some of my animation books, principles, and school notes to get my animation skills back in shape, and I've noticed that all of them stress timing & spacing as one of the most important principles. This must be something I forgot because my animation has always been very much about posing. It's amazing to me how far good timing & spacing will get you. I'm going to keep testing in clay and stopmo, and hopefully get some decent animation on an armature soon. Wish me luck.
