Hotwire Animation Keys

Here's something I've been meaning to share! It's a small look at the process of animation!

I did animation keys on this episode of The Awesomes. Keys refer to all the poses a character makes to form a movement. This key animation has more breakdowns than normal because the movements are carefully planned out. After animation keys are approved, the scenes are handed to another animator to inbetween it. Inbetweens are all the drawings between each key drawing. In this case, we are using puppets, but they still require new drawings when needed. In this sequence the inbetweener most likely had to draw more hair, arms, lips, and skirt follow through.

To see the rest of this sequence, please check out The Awesomes on Hulu!
