Doodle Animation Blog #1 – the opening action

Today I added the sign, completed the triangles of the legs, and added a bit of animation at the end of this to have the sign disappear.

I’m still not sure about some of the acting moments. Specifically the way he looks up and around to the sign at the start, and the initial pause before he looks. It feels like it lasts too long maybe? I guess I just don’t know what Doodle would be thinking upon first coming alive. I want him to almost take in his surroundings but that will be hard to convey as when we film this in real life we want to be pretty close to him.

Tomorrow I’m going to work on him seeing Cass and then jumping to get his attention.
