Happy Fun Stuff

Hey gang. Production is going smoothly. From the 91 panels from the storyboard/animatic comes 43 different shots in Act 3. Each shot is approx. 1-2 seconds on average. I've been slaving away on drawing pencil tests for every shot and get the timing completed so when it comes down to it, I can just get right into it and draw the characters without doing much thinking or planning since it's already been done.

Out of the 43 shots, half of them are timed out. There are a few out of that bunch that I want to tweak the timing on but for the most part it's looking really good. Sometimes I end up drawing too many frames and the action gets slowed down e.g. a run sequence. Other times there needs to be more anticipation of movement and a few frames of a hold on a pose. Usually if it looks and feels right, then it is right.
