Drunk Goofy

Drunk Goofy from Christoffer Andersen on Vimeo.

A lot of "new" things where tried out in this week.
I decided to do the whole animation in a 3/4 perspective, which ment for the first time, to try and do a walk in perpective.

I also tried to work a bit differently with my drawings.
Instead of focusing on one principle at a time, I tried to incoorporate all animation principles into each drawing, while I did them, thinking of flow, arcs, anticipation, follow through, drag and so on.

Most of the scene is animated straight ahead, but with my initial keys as a guideline for where I wanted my character to go. For this animation, straight ahead animation felt like the best choice, because of the constant weight shift and the extreme drag in the limbs.
The whole animation is done in about 4 days, and just as with the weight lift exercise, with the great animator Meelis Arulepp as teacher, guide, mentor, animator-dude :)
-Always a pleasure.
