Add ‘in betweens’
Similar to breakdowns, ‘ in betweens’ is an animation term that refers to the images or frames that go in between the breakdown poses/frames. These are all the rest of the drawings that flesh out your scene and give it a life-like feel. Continue to create these in betweens (typically on 2s) until your scene is polished and believable.
Explore new techniques
Even after nearly 30 years of animating I’m still enthralled with the magic of it. Seeing your images come to life is a special feeling. I’m still experimenting and discovering new techniques, and I would encourage you to do the same: experiment with tempos, pacing, stories and character attitudes. The more you do it, the better you’ll get. Have fun!
