While an­i­mat­ing your scene re­fer to the 12 Fun­da­men­tals of An­i­ma­tion I men­tioned in the in­tro­duc­tion. Us­ing ex­ag­ger­a­tion, and squash and stretch, in your poses will en­hance the feel­ing of emo­tion. Like­wise, in­cor­po­rat­ing an­tic­i­pa­tion and over­lap­ping ac­tion into your draw­ings will give your scene a sense of life. Us­ing th­ese in com­bi­na­tion will give your scene a sense that it’s grounded in re­al­ity.

An­i­mat­ing dia­logue

When an­i­mat­ing a dia­logue scene, don’t overdo it. Cre­at­ing a mouth shape for ev­ery syl­la­ble is a com­mon mis­take that makes an­i­ma­tion feel un­nat­u­ral. Fo­cus on the key sounds, ma­jor vow­els and hard con­so­nants. And cre­ate mouth poses a few frames be­fore the sound. If you study speech in slow mo­tion you’ll see our mouth starts form­ing shapes of words be­fore we hear them.
