Pencil Testing
You can flip your drawings in your hands to see if the action is moving properly and the principles are all evident in the action but to see if the timing is really working properly, especially if there is lip sync, you need to do a pencil test.

A pencil test is simply taking your drawings and exposing them on either film or on a computer system and then playing it back in real time.
