ACSJP – SS1.A2.1
Original Picture (Key Picture) and Movie (In-Between)

In this lesson, students will learn the differences between Key Animation and In-Between Animation.

My biggest takeaway from the course is how to draw dynamically in movements, hair, and expression. My drawing tends to be expressionless or just have the same expression and position throughout. There is no life in my drawing. The course taught me how to better understand movements and proportions.

(During Anime Mosha drawing course), I learned a lot including how to manage body proportions. The lessons are easy to understand and I was able to overcome inking. I didn’t have confidence (in inking) until after the course.

I have gotten better at copy drawings after learning the use of grids and my inking is improved. I was able to draw original characters with better proportions and proper positioning of facial details. I was a total beginner so I have improved a lot more after learning this course.
