Squash And Stretch

We had to animate a football bouncing and a bowling ball bouncing so that we could experiment with how to convey different weights through animation, as well as playing about with stretch and squash techniques. So this was basically the same task as we were set in Maya, but I found it so much more fun to just be able to physically draw all the frames out by hand rather than manipulating it on the computer. I'm not too happy with my light bouncing ball as I needed more frames as it doesn't flow very well, but it's alright for my first try.

I was really pleased with how the bowling ball turned out though and you can definitely tell the difference in weight between my two versions of the bouncing balls.
