techniques animators use to bring their artwork to life

If you watch hours upon hours of animation, you’ll start noticing some of the clever techniques animators use to bring their artwork to life. One of my favorite examples is in Ray Laurence’s lesson, “A glimpse of teenage life in ancient Rome.” The animation here is gorgeous and richly textured, particularly the scenes set in the marketplace. The way characters in the foreground are out-of-focus, and the way the point-of-view bobs and floats, creates the illusion that we’re right there in a Roman marketplace. It’s a technique that adds new dimensions of experience to the scene.
