I see, I see. I thought it was a mirror, that's what I get for looking at with my tiny iTouch...
But I bet a mirror might help. My professor has said that if you're drawing something, like an old painting, to take the painting and check against your drawing in a mirror. If the drawing and painting are equal from your eyes, and then equal from the mirror's eyes, you're pretty much set for life!
@00:10OH okay, I gotcha. Sorry for the confusion. Yes, I drew the owl over and over on different pages. Then I put one page at a time under a camera pointing downwards, took a shot of it, then replaced that paper with the next one, rinse and repeat until I filmed all pages. Flipbook (program) puts them all together into a .mov
(No photoshop on this one or other video editing)
Here's generally what an animation desk looks like:
@00:10I see, I see. I've had an animation running in my head for some time now, so I wanted to ask an animator who's tried it out before I do it.
And that is one neat desk! Don't you just love it when random wood comes together? XD But why do you use the desk? Does the mirror help keep each drawing the same? (is told that by her drawing professor).
