My Role | Animation (01:13-01:18)
Can’t thanks Ordinary Folk enough for letting me work on this amazing project.
I was fortunate enough to work with extremely talented & nice people in the world.

I was assigned a 5-sec animation, including character animation & cel animation.

See project details on Behance.

Motion Test - Character Animation
The video below shows my daily progress in the character animation.
I started with key poses of a big jump.
Once we nailed down the overall timing & posing, I jumped into inbetweening.
Finally, I added all the details such as expressions, earrings & shoes.

As you can see, the way she jumps is quite different in the 1st day V.S. the 7th day.
There were trials and errors in the process.
Huge thanks to Jorge R. Canedo Estrada & Victor Claudio de Paula e Silva for your feedback & being so supportive.
The lower body consists of 3 layers, hip + left leg + right leg.
Without precomp them, I used an effect called Compound Arithmetic.
It merges multiple layers into one single layer.
Then I can use it as a matte and apply a gradient to the lower body.
Motion Test - Cel Animation
Here's how I tackled the dog cel.
Legs were first drawn in matchsticks.
Its body was broken down into bouncing balls.
• One for the chest
• One for the pelvis
• One for the head & one for the nose

The challenge was to be consistent in the design language while drawing each frame.
The follow through of its floppy ears helped sell the motion.
