Doing It the Hard Way

Trying it the old-fashioned way, I animated this ball bounce on 10f paper and then scanned it into FlipBook using the auto-registration feature. The main thing I learned from this exercise is that I really need to get good at the paperless, all-digital approach. For one thing, it took me nearly half an hour to scan in all of the drawings. For another – hell, that half-hour thing really sealed it for me.

For those keeping score, this was animated on twos and I used a 6B pencil to do the “final” lines. I used the pegs-on-bottom approach but found it uncomfortable to draw over the pegs when the ball was in the lower half of the page.
