    Walid' sketchbook|next step : walk cycle !

    Hi all !!! So I start an animation's sketchbook I'm really at the beginning of my learning, and I hope you will help me to improve. Instead of posting them in the sketchbook session, I prefer to post my exercises and assignments to have more critiques. Oh, and I'm a self-taught, I'm using the richard williams' book I'm also using tvpaint software to to my animations, but I'll maybe switch to the lightbox and pegbar to make my stuff ! And if you have any exercises, assignments, or advics, you're more than welcome So here are my first 2 exercises, I was focusing on timing and spacing, and I find there is a little issue with the ball, the movement looks a bit weird :

    The box holds the mass well. Nice job.

    I think the circle needs more tweens. It is pretty stroby.

    The ball when it's leaving the right side seems like it speeds up on it's first frame.

    I think the timing is off on the first one. That is a long way for the ball to fall in that amount of frames without tweens. I would say that is a great start and do a bunch more.

    This sketchbook will soon be a bitch to load, and that might screw up the timing in your gifs, but other than that, good animation studies! The box has a real feel of dimension in it.

    Keep studying from Williams! This part of CA really needs more threads like this.

    so a just something I thought to share is with the ball falling, you shouldn't forget that the ball is already moving before it enters the screen so there it moves a lot faster in the start and doesn't have a fade in like that.
    Nice job by the way.

    Bai Fan : thanks for your help !!

    BubbaGump : Thanks !

    icarus2912 : Yeah it looks weird I did that like the bal just falling without any forces on it ( i hope you understand , a kind of " free fall" " but in that case, the ball doesn't have to move forward, so eah, i sucked up at something, and did the same mistake for this one, I will fix it next time ! Anyway, thanks for your help !

    So here is my bouncing ball. it looks a bit better in timing and spacing, but it still sucks at something, it look like the ball stay much longer on the air each time, but whan i delet some frame, it fall too faster ! Hard to find the perfect timing and spacing !! I really need to update more often this sketchbook !

    hey walid; so this is where your hiding huh?
    good to see you about. and good start for animation.
    your making one very common mistake on your ball though;
    (thanks for the lines on the last one btw. as its impossible to watch this stuff frame by frame its a little hard to figure out the problem sometime.)
    you have to remember that a ball's forward motion is constant (or, slows down with a constant amount of friction)
    only the up/downward motion is speeds up and down kwadrantadly. (is that a word? change(velocity)V= (velocity)Vx9.8 I think..)

    ooh yeah; did you know I'm a certified art-teacher? that's right. everything arty I say has been endorsed by the state of the Netherlands! (they'll be sorry soon)

    ashess : Thanks for your help ! I just followed your advices, it's really better, maybe it needs a bit more tweens, but now the biggest mistakes are my arcs, the movement doesn't looks natural because of arcs, they looks crappy ! i'll take more time on them next time !
