Nice texture animation.

video
I love this animation because of nice texture. It is easy to know Hiccup is no experience about knife usage. His arms are completely straight, his hip is far from his knife and his footsteps are not strong.
It's non-experienced person style, obviously. And he change his right hand position. This is cool, because this is connected to his thought and attitude that he is so nerves and afraid.

  4. Yes, Line of action is great. but on the other hands, I'd like to say we do not keep animation principle every single animation. I look often, an animator kill a "believable" moment, because of the principle. They do over the top animation. too much overshoot, arc etc etc.. you know.

  5. I think that is really good point! sometimes I focus on animation principles too much and end up with losing believable moment. I will keep it my mind!! Thank you :D

  6. The principles are all tools to get the job done. The job is to get the audience to believe that these characters exist, and you get that when the audience believes in the actions and choices the characters are making. This scene works great as a two character scene because their two performances combined help me believe in their reality. Toothless' performance is seriously being overlooked; it's so believable, you ignore him. He's being the perfect supporting actor. Hiccup's performance is great because even though the other character is down on the ground and injured, and he has the high ground and the weapon, Hiccup is still the low status character in the scene, which is consistent to his character at this point in the film. You believe in what they're doing and how they're doing it, so the whole thing becomes believable.

  7. Awesome!! yeah, I didnt pay attention to toothless. but now I know what you mean. and when you say the job is to get the audience to believe, to me I always focus two sides, physical side and emotional side. what do you think?
