GOTD 4

Bird flight study
Today's belated GIF is a study of a dove in infuriating slow motion. I tried to focus on the 3D stuff in this one.from what I've learnt so far this is one of the more important aspects of making an animation look convincing. Ya boi Jakers has been reading up on his animation history and it turns out this has been a priority since the start. Check out this chap, Winsor McCay, one of the first full scale animators that graced this good earth. This crazy bastard got it figured out back in 1912, and on top of that, each frame is hand drawn. Looks like it's time to up my game then, eh fellers?
