Planning with thumbnails
I can't tell you how much I miss animating, it really makes me fill bad I haven't done anything new for so long.
Yesterday, I've managed to finally sit down before going to bed, and started to sketch (so I'll sleep less, it's for a good cause ;) so I began planning a short body mechanics animation - lifting a heavy object.
I've recorded the video reference several months ago so I used it for the most parts, but then I've decided I want to do a more cartoony kind of animation so I've turned down the computer and sat with only my blank piece of paper and started thinking how it would look like, by doing quick sketching.
Here is what I sketched.
