Progress So Far
I now have a 10 second animatic of one of my characters wielding a sword. It is form a small section of the storyboard I produced. He will be attacking an enemy, but for now I just want to make sure I have the main character right.
Feedback so far has been positive:
Captured movement of body in relation to sword well
Good expressions and key poses
It is quite details for an animatic, more than it really needs to be, but it does mean that I can use these frames for the actual animation.
There is a lot of space off to the left and I should think about animating the camera to move around the characters rather than being fixed. Although I an worried about doing this because it might be beyond my knowledge and skill at the moment. I will be capable of it eventually, but I think it is a bit much right now?
The next step is to make an animation so that the action and movement is smooth and realistic.
I also need to think about the sound.
