Animation Pencil test 202

These animation pencil test are a continuation of our  lessons.  In the next batch of animation lessons, you will continue to push further into character animation and effects. Water splashes and animal jumps are part of your schedule. We also will cover elements like smoke, which really does not have any form but definitely has rhythm and texture. Make sure your animation test, timing is not all the same. Slow in and slow out are key! Please read our three animation books and study them. The illusion of life is a great example of a character animation pencil test.  Likewise, you should have taken the animation 101 classes. Animation should be done out of love for the medium, if this is a chore, it might not be for you. Animators love what they do, you should too.

It is important to do a really good job on these test?

A pencil test is a pencil test, right? There are so many of them!  Please see the importance of your animation test. Try to understand that this is your ticket to an animation job! Studios of all sizes want to see your animation pencil test. If you just do the assignment in a sloppy hurried way, you are doing it all wrong.   In other words, if you do a messy animation test you will have a lazy boring, mediocre reel. As a result, you will not be taken seriously. Use plenty of references! Video reference is an animator’s best friend! Make use of it. Don’t try to just do it from your memory but really study the action from the video first. Anything else is LAZY.
