And there you have it!
There is so much that goes into animation and even the smallest of actions need to be deliberate for it to feel believable. So go, be free and experiment with different weights and styles of motion.
If you’re feeling adventurous, you can add another dimension…! Check out the difference between 2D and 3D above.
Don’t worry, we’ll be posting another ‘how to’ focussed on how to make your ball 3D soon so keep an eye out…
In the meantime, if you’d like to know more about the principles of animation like squash and stretch, I highly recommend Richard Williams Animator’s Survival Kit.
