AMB Animation Academy presents this detailed step by step tutorial on Traditional Hand Drawn character animation. The scene is a female character similar to the popular 'Disney Princess' style of characters doing a standard head turn action. The educational video outlines the process of sketching key frames and extreme poses and then making breakdown drawings that go in between the key images. The next step in the process is to make a spacing chart that will determine the timing of the scene and placement of the in-between drawings. In-betweens are essential frames that have to be drawn by the assistant animator to finalise the animation and give it a flowing, smooth finish. Ideally the key frames and break down frames should go through the clean-up process before the in-between drawings are made. The tutorial concludes by explaining how to make the in between drawings in accordance to the spacing chart. Then the final animation is demonstrated. The Animation was created using Toon Boom Storyboard Pro version 4.1 and a Wacom Cintiq.
