Boat On Wave Assignment

Here is the final animation for the Boat on a Wave assignment. The drawings are timed to the final exposure sheets.

Press the play button to watch the animation play.

Use the control bar or the single frame advance button to view the individual frames.

This really does require a bit more drawing than the previous assignments. The boat moving around like that doesn't help either. The smoke is just a random cycle.

The reason for the large number of drawings is to slow the action of the wave down. This is more an issue of scale. If you were animating a mouse, the movements would be fast and snappy. If you were to animate a giant, you'd make the movements much slower. The same applies to the wave. You slow the action down and they appear to be larger.
