Pencil Tests

Rough animation at its finest

46 notes

Hey guys! Homework time.
We’re all fans of animation. I’m curious though: what’s your favorite piece of animation? That one bit, be it long and involved, short and sweet, elaborate or subtle, that inspires you.
Let me know, and I’ll post the most insightful responses. It’s fun to see what other people like, and to be reminded of work you’d forgotten about. This kind of discussion is not only interesting, but can help us all understand animation a bit better.
