TRANSITIONS, SMEARS AND MULTIPLES
So a lot of you have been commenting about funny frames in my Harrey Podder short.
As most of you probably know when there's a really fast motion in 2D we don't have the
added benefit of motion blur in most cases like 3D does so we resort to drawing smear drawings
or multiple drawings in one frame to capture all the information that is happening in that tiny amount of time.
I actually wish we had this much control in 3D animation. I really enjoy doing this kind of stuff. This to me is the
most fun part of 2D animation.
I thought I would break some of my scenes down for you to show you in detail how I tackled these situations.
Probably the most fun was the transformation shot of Harrey into a bunny. I hope you enjoy looking at this stuff. I'd love to hear what you think or if you have any questions about my process please let me know.
