An animation sketch frame of a butterfly
See it on Youtube, https://youtu.be/qId2YsHTSMc
This was an entry to a FlipaClip animation android application contest. It was animated at 12 frames per second in a hand drawn frame by frame animation technique. Frame by frame means that for every movement a character makes, a separate drawing is needed. This is my preferred method of animating because I feel it's more labor intensive and really helps me develop my drawing skills. I mean after the first second of... lets say 24 drawing of one character, you're sure to be able to draw that character with your eyes closed. Although frame by frame animating is my favorite style to work in, I do enjoy the process of animating in other ways like stop motion, digital 2D puppet, and experimental.
