Master Of Animation, Games & Interactivity


I redesigned my body structure for cats. So I started trying to create animations from my inspiration without referencing other people's animations.


I drew the cat's keyframes first, then added in-between frames to make the movement more natural.


Drawing a cat's movements becomes very difficult without a reference from someone else's work. I can't imagine where the cat's next move will be. Especially how the line of the cat's body and the part of its hind legs should change when it stretches out its first foot.
Under the rigid body movement performance, I found that I have a greater improvement than the pose-to-pose drawing training. Begin to slowly discover how the various parts of the movement are balanced. For example, when the cat is moving forward, a joint point can be added to the center of the foot. A slight variation, rocking in motion, makes the cat's movements more natural.
