The first bit of animation, a bit of a trial to figure out exactly my process, its still unfinished as the bed the character is lying on hasn't been included yet, but as a tool to indicate the approach it does the job. Been debating for quite a while as to the look in terms of post production and decided in the end to go for something that has a bit of camera movement even on mostly locked shots. I don't really intend for it to look hand held but I wanted it too feel a bit more natural and not as if its on a stage so to speak, this applies as well to the motion blur which i'm still toying with to get something that looks fluid without being overbearing. The last issue is the line boil i'm trying to reduce this for subsequent shots and I think that it's mostly down to doing all the rough animation on 2s as opposed to doing the cleanup and some of the inbetweens at the same time, which also saves precious time.
