Keep your draw­ings loose

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

Work fast and ef­fi­ciently: keep your draw­ings loose and fluid so you don’t get bogged down in de­tail. This will en­able you to move through your scene quickly with­out los­ing mo­men­tum. How­ever, en­sure vol­umes and anatomy stay con­sis­tent! I love the feel­ing of the hand-drawn line. Some may pre­fer a crisp edge, but this isn’t the time for it. You can clean up your drawing af­ter­wards.

Flip your images

When work­ing in tra­di­tional an­i­ma­tion you would flip back and forth be­tween sheets of pa­per to see if the move­ment was cor­rect. Work­ing dig­i­tally, you can achieve this same ef­fect (and more) with the Onion Skin tool. The tool en­ables you to see each drawing or frame over­lap­ping the pre­vi­ous and next ones. Make sure you con­tin­u­ally use it to main­tain con­sis­tency.
