Animation Time! - Zombination Rig

Today's Inspiration:
“They love to see the drawings move and the characters think,”

“Remember that! It’s what they like to see in our scenes.
We should always let them see what the characters were thinking!”

1. Appeal in drawing.
2. Staging.
3. Most interesting way?
4. Is it the most entertaining way?
5. Are you in character?
6. Are you advancing the character?
7. Is it the simplest statement of the main idea of this scene?
8. Is the story point clear?
9. Are the secondary actions working with the main action?
10. Is the presentation best for the medium?
11. Does it have 2 dimensional clariy?
12. Does it have 3 dimensional solidity?
13. Does it have 4 dimensional drawing?
14. Are you trying to do something that shouldn’t be attempted?
