Ap­ply Squash and stretch

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

As one of the 12 prin­ci­ples of an­i­ma­tion, squash and stretch is a use­ful tech­nique in giv­ing your draw­ing more life and en­ergy. In an­i­ma­tion the use of squash is of­ten used as an­tic­i­pa­tion for a broader ac­tion: the stretch. The same can be done in a sin­gle draw­ing. An ac­tion can still be read in a still im­age. A stretched pose acts as a mo­ment in time when the char­ac­ter is cre­at­ing their broad­est ac­tion, while a squash in a draw­ing re­flects ten­sion.
