CGL Presentation
Animation and Pencil-Tests

Presentation on the style of pencil-test drawings focusing on the use of lines and geometric components to form the character's appearance. Such as an action-line to indicate its overall tilt and bendiness, gesture-pose to indicate the curves of the character's pose, geometric components to indicate its area and volume, arrows to indicate movement paths, and the timing chart to indicate spacing between intermediate frames. This talk also gave several examples of good pencil-test animations.

I will not be posting the slides because they make use of many animations which I do not have permission to republish.
