for Lesson 3: Video Example "A Bubble Floats" -- Working with Basic Shapes-The Sphere


Lesson Five. We just worked with straight lines falling under gravity with various weights. Now we will work with curved lines also moving under gravity with various weights.

The first is a sphere shape in the form of a light soap bubble floating up from a soap bottle until it pops! This exercise also uses the animation principle of 1. timing 2. overlap  and now we will add 3. squash & stretch.

The bubble will float upwards, but the animator does not have to be as super accurate drawing a loose, wiggly bubble as he or she did in drawing the straight lines and shapes: a plastic straw or chop stick, a metal pipe, & a pencil. Squash & stretch in the movement adds life to it.
