This was my animation final for my Animation Assisting (AKA Classical Animation Techniques) class.

I was given the keyframes to the skip cycle, 10 or so rough drawings., I had to redraw each of the keyframes to tidy them up and add consistency to pretty much everything. The roughs didn't have clearly drawn hands or feet and the basket shrank and grew, so I had to fix that.
Then I had to draw the inbetween drawings; 14 of them, and make sure they were consistent with the roughs in mass and details and everything.
Lastly I had to clean up all 24 drawings by tracing them over exactly using .5 and .3 mm mechanical pencils.

It was a lot of work :|

Thank you so much!!

Last I heard though, my school had changed this class into something that doesn't even teach this anymore?

booooo! Oh well :P

I feel like animation should be a trade anyway...like car mechanics or hairdressers :P

There's no need to have a degree in this stuff xD

I dunno, it's kind of impossible to be bad at a trade, right? Because there's a "right" and "wrong" way to do hair/fix a car/etc, right? But, I had classmates who were just plain bad at animation. Whether it was shot choices, character design, drafting ability, acting ability, etc. Sucking in many different ways  =_o

I think a trade school for animation would be cool, but might get formulaic really fast.

Though yes, a faster way to learn animation would be super welcome.

well (and I know how loaded this term is BWAHAHAHHA), to a certain degree there's a level of -talent- you need to understand how animation works. Or maybe not talent, but a knack? Usually if you do it long enough you pick it up but some people maybe don't have the sense for it. Like how I am terrible at MarioKart although I play every day ;__;

But the nuts and bolts of animation are just some basic rules. You can then USE those rules (squash/stretch, anticipation, etc) to make incredible art....technically  car mechanic could make art with cars in some way....maybe design new engines, or find a different way to incorporate a door (like the delorean?). But the basic knowledge is something they'd pick up at a mechanic shop....not something they'd need to go to college for. 

I guess I see animation as a trade because it's another tool in the artists' arsenal. Some people can elevate it. But the basics are something very everyday and ordinary. Put this thing over here, move that over there.

Ooooh I get it, yeah that makes total sense to me. That's also a great way to describe animation stuffs. That would certainly explain why most classes just have you do bouncing balls and waves and weight exercises and stuff like that 8U

I'd say you need a strong logical part of your brain to do animation. Like, you need to be able to go "no, stuff moves like this, not like that" sort of thing, you know?

That's true! It's a lot of technical know-how and having to adjust and fuss with things

Actually I am not good at any of those things how am I even an animator >_>

@00:06You did a good job keeping your drawings smooth and your mass consistent. The only part that is hard for me to believe is the high-point of the basket swinging forward. The difference in position between the peak frame and the previous seems too great to be as smooth as the rest. The tail I can understand, because squirrels love to flip their tails very quickly. However, I don't feel like a basket can follow the same principles. A tail is fluffy and mostly air and doesn't have much inertia as a whole, whereas a basket is rather solid and would have enough inertia to keep it from being flipped nearly instantaneously.

Everything looks fluid and clean, it seems like there's a weird frame though near the end of the loop. I see some sort of scribble in the bottom left corner.
