The Ron Antonio Dance Project Part 1: Planning…

What’s good! I know I haven’t been blogging as much as usual. Between work, training for marathons, and school, it’s tough to regularly write something. Don’t worry though, I have something extra good this time. I thought I would give everyone a glimpse into my world as an animation student. For my final animation project this summer term, I have decided to tackle the fun, but difficult task of animating a unique dance that a kasama of mine has. What you’re about to see is video reference I shot one night out in the middle of the street…

Yes, that’s the Ron Antonio Dance, feel free to take another look really quick. Done? Hit the jump to see my planning for this tough but oh so hilarious animation…

Before I even touch the computer, I sketch out the key poses and some breakdowns that will be the foundation of my animation.

I go back through my video reference and just sketch out the poses…

Here’s my sketchbook, with a couple of notes added in. Notice the arcs in the hips and the arc in the spine…
