In 1988, an extraordinary thing happened in the world of animation. The film "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?"( Directed by Robert Zemekis, animation directed by Richard Williams) was released. The film gleefully celebrated the kind of imaginative slapstick cartoon violence that was the staple of the most popular short cartoon classics that were made during the period from around 1940 till the decline in the year that the film takes place,1947. Cartoon lover's eyes popped like Tex Avery wolves all over the world for this caliber of animation hadn't been seen since...well, 1947. The film was a major hit, and a powerful shot in the arm for the until then sluggish animation business. It was also in 1988 that I became associated with the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon Art in Dover, New Jersey. The next year, Milt left the school, but I stayed on as an animation instructor and have since been teaching a course in what the school lists as "life drawing". What follows are the notes for my class.

Lackadaisy Expressions Boy, I didn't know what I was getting myself into when I started this. I've had requests for some sort of expressions tutorial dating back a while now, so I figured, "Sure! I can explain expression drawing...and it'll be way better than all those tutorials out there that are nothing but charts of generic expressions. Yeah! Just give me a day or two to whip something up..." Um. showthread Really, the best way to practice animation is to animate. Sounds like a silly answer, but hear me out.Animation is fundamentally Keyframes and Timing. Gesture will help you when your figuring out natural positions for Keyframing, but, there really isn't a non-animation exercise that helps with Timing. You really need a sequence of images to play with Timing, there's just no getting around it.If your really keen on getting some Animation training away from your desk, aside from Gesture, you can people-watch. You have enough studies of Walk Cycles, Picking up Heavy Objects, and other general movement in the Animator's Survival Kit. But with people watching you can focus on the non-purposeful movements people make that can lend believability to your character.
