51 EJERCICIOS PARA ANIMAR

Blog

Hola!

¿Como mejorar nuestras habilidades? PRACTICANDO! Es cierto que lo podemos hacer de manera autodidacta, y que luego de cierto punto, es necesaria la mirada de un profesional para corregir, ajustar detalles y trazar el camino hacia un resultado de calidad.

De todas maneras me parece ideal compartir una lista de ejercicios que encontré, muy graduales, con los que practicar. De a poco iré agregando notas, traduciendo y subiendo ejemplos a esta lista. Como puntapié inicial me parece mas satisfactoria.

Algunas cosas a tener en cuenta en el proceso: Evitar saltear pasos. Compartir el resultado con alguien, profesional o no, sabrá decirnos que algo anda mal. Planificar la animación: Trazar bocetos de los cuadros claves, pensar cada cuadro.  Usar referencias,  grabarnos. Manejar la frustración, si no sale, arrancar de cero a veces es lo mejor.
