Light and Heavy Ball 2D

Ok so I wanted another go at this whole 2D ball animation. The planning got a little crazy this time since I had 2 balls to deal with and collisions. But here is the planning of this:

Also for this one I was playing around with the timing and not just the spacing. The last animation was done on mostly 2's except for the contacts with the ground which I changed to 1's later on. This one was done a bit the same with the "light" ball on 3's and the heavy ball on 2's with both of their contacts on 2's and 1's.

Here it is so far!

Here's a higher quality one as well

First 2D Animation

I was inspired by Richard Williams's "The Animator's Survival Kit" to make this ball bounce.  I first took my idea and drew it out.  My key poses are in black, my pass poses in red, my breakdown poses in blue, and my final breakdown poses in green.  My first drawing I did is not shown here but was just a basic ball bounce.  After I got the hang of it, I wanted to make my own twist and put in multiple contacts with both a table and a tree.  Here is my drawing for this:

And here is the final product animated in Flash. :)

Ned's New Camera in 3D!

Ned's New Camera from Chase Shields on Vimeo.


This is as close to final as I can get with this short animation. It's about a guy named Ned who got a new 3D camera. I hope you enjoy!
