“Animation is not the art of drawings that move but the art of movements that are drawn.” – Norman McLaren

My research for a better understanding of movement and references led me to the rotoscope technique. My project is based on photographs and videos that I already take, but using them as a basis for the animation is a whole new concept. I’m planning to practice it, and I think this is the right technique for me. I’m taking two Domestika courses. 

To begin with: Rotoscoping: Draw an Animation Frame by FrameA course by Gonzalo Cordero de Ciria

Second: Mixed Media Animation in ProcreateA course by Caroline Kjellberg
Excited about it! 
Here is the base video that I took for my animatic. Now I’m planning to use it for rotoscope practice.
