after a long discussion here, i was convinced that no matter 2d or 3d animator i want to be i must learn to draw and animate traditionally,
so i have my scanner and animation disc and software for pencil tests.
i have rolled up my sleeves but wait......
i am from computers background so i am quite well with all 3d softwares:
maya, max and also scripting like technical things.
but i dont have idea about exactly how 2d animators animate?
how they approach drawings on animation discs?
how they do numberings on them?
how to use an X sheet?
i have animators survival kit, timing for animation and animation from script to screen, so thats good.
but i really want guidance about how to do hands on an animation piece.
i would be greatfull if anyone can give step by step method.
and ya one more thing, i have found lot of exercise that should be done to make a good animation reel but i want list of exercises about how to begin in animation.
so thanks in advance any reply from traditional animators will be helpful.
and about my drawing skills : i am practising "natural way to draw".
Thank you very much again... !
