Last week I was having a bit of a mental blank when I came to doing some 2d work. I was really struggling to get motivated so I took an hour or two to do some research, looking at a bunch of behind the scenes videos from various Cartoon Network shows like 'The Amazing World of Gumball' and 'Steven Universe'. I also looked at some Disney pencil tests and an BTS video of 'Ethel & Ernest', all of which were very informative and motivational. It was great to hear and see how these animation projects get made and why.
And finally I watched another tutorial from Toniko Pantoja on timing charts and spacing. This one was an hour long demo in which he showed how he animates. It's really interesting to see his process and to get some tips off of him. I did notice though that during this animation his character never blinks, which I'm guessing he just forgot about, but it gives off this unnatural feeling even though the rest of the animation is amazing.
