Animator Island's 51 Great Animation Exercises to Master

davidlamhauge provided me a link to 51 Great Animation Exercises to Master by Animator Island. Why not try all 51?

I had already made No. 1 on the list which is a ball bounce animation so… No.2. Here is my first try


Then, taking what I’ve learned, I created a second one:



Exercise No. 3: Falling Brick


If you don’t add squash and stretch it looks like an almost hollow metal ball making a big impact on a hard floor. squash and stretch determines how squishy/hard a ball is

That was what I wanted. I did go with lots of squash and stretch with the first ball. I just go with less for the second ball because I wanted it be more solid.

Same with the brick. I don’t want a squishy brick.
