We looked into exaggeration ready for this weeks challenge which was to try and move an immovable object. looking at animations, you see that a lot of the actions are a bit over the top but if you keep the emphasis within reason, then it can look really effective. i got a great quote from a video i watched about the incredibles. it says “use every part of the buffalo”
It simply means that use as much as something as you can and make the most of it. it links in with our research, we should never stop into our research and we should never throw away any of our sketches. there always good for a reference and you never know, you may be able to use a part of it at one point and if it is bad at least you know what not to do.
Weekly challenge 4
We had to make dee look like to he trying to push or pull an object but it is so heavy that he is unable to move it.
This was by far my favourite and most successful attempt of an animation with dee. the trick is to emphasise the stress of pulling the big heavy object without moving his hands that are gripped to to the handle. once the arms or other body parts are locked then the character has no choice but to move its arms.
