Rembrandt’s Drawings of Children – Anticipation & Action
Rembrandt’s Drawings of Children
Here’s what Wiki has to say about one of the ’12 Basic principals of animation’ according to Ollie Jonston & Frank Thomas : sahme ; wiki used to have a great story board sketch of the dwarves falling down the stairs by Frank Thomas… on of my favourite drawings… gone , broken link…probably Walt Disney tightening up on copyright. Goodbye fair use. Anyway, back to quoting from Wiki :
Anticipation is used to prepare the audience for an action, and to make the action appear more realistic.
Anticipation: A baseball player making a pitch prepares for the action by moving his arm back.
Not without a certain amount of tender humour… we anticipate the next footstep in the above drawing! Story boarding before Walt Disney
M_L & I laughed about this naughty boy … Been there, done that! Note the shoe being kicked off. Genius.
Look at this beautiful child 🙂 Tempus Fugit.
