Today I did my second attempt of animating. I used Matt’s premade Squirrel and gave it a bit of life.
In my animation I used several principles such as squash and stretch, a little bit of stage and most definitely exaggeration, as you will see in my play blast at https://vimeo.com/user59886180
With my random imagination I decided to make squirrel catch a ball thing and him turn into a slug. I exaggerated him eating, because his belly stretched (exploded). There is definitely a lot of improvements I could make to the animation, such as the smoothness and the quality of the animation, because at the moment it looks to robot and there isn’t lots of emotion or expression of the squirrel.
