Examples of 2D animation

The above example describes about a simple bouncing ball 2d animation.First the rough sketch of ball bounce was created with timing and spacing adjusted in the sketch using light box and then the animation was captured with help of line tester and computer.

2D Animation

The most important part in animation is drawing.Drawing of a charcter starts with basic shapes like circle,triangle,cylinder,cone.So one has to be perfect in drawing exactly these shapes.This will be the pillar for 2d animation.

In 2D animation,certain principles has to be followed by animators.When an animation is created,the animator has to take care of the timing and spacing of the key frames(1sec=24frames).

2D animation figures are created and/or edited on the computer using 2D bitmap graphics or created and edited using 2D vector graphics.
