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! :)

Done for Intro to Animation. First time doing a flight cycle.

No, the owl isn't because of Guardians of Ga'hoole, I just like barn owl faces.

Materials: col-erase pencil

How many frames were used to create this and how long did it take you to do. It's awsome by the way

Thanks!

15 or 16? I have the pile put away, so I'm going off memory here.

It took me maybe 7 hrs or so but I was filming/checking it at different stages a lot.

sorry to bother you again, but is that 16 frames per second or altogether. Thank You. Awsome work

The base number of pages drawn, not what was shot finally. I think it was mostly twos with some ones in there for the shooting.

@00:10Very nice anatomy, again! (for what I know of birds, anywho)

The movement is incredibly fluid, it's not just wings moving here, the whole bird is moving subtley here. Impressive!

How did you animate this though?

@00:10Thank you very much but I'm not sure I understand your last question exactly?

(With pencil, animation paper and an animation desk?)

@00:10Ack, I was just wondering how you animated it. Just sat and drew the same owl on a gazzillion pages? And then scanned, Photoshopped and video-edited?

What on earth is an animation desk?

@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:

Hope that helps!

@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).

The lab ones we have don't have a mirror, it's just a plastic disc with pegs and a light shining through.

I don't know that about a mirror, I haven't heard that on this end.
