Emotions and Attitudes
|Ask yourself constantly:||What am I trying to say?
What do I really want to show?
How do I want the audience to react?
|Within animation we use time to help convey the feeling of emotion through the acting of the character. There are instances where the emotion can be conveyed through just one drawing and in others, two, three and even more. A transition from one level of emotion to another can be conveyed through multiple drawings.|
|Use the element of time wisely:||to establish the emotion of the character,
to convey it to the viewers,
to let them savor the situation.
|Dont be ponderous, but dont take it away from them just as they start to enjoy it. This statement deals with the amount of time that the poses are held for. Again this is something that we dont need to deal with at this point in time but we should still be aware that its there.|
|Remember:||It is the change of shape that shows the character is thinking.
It is the thinking that gives the illusion of life.
It is the life that gives meaning to the expression.
