Over the past week I’ve been answering lots of messages about how to start out in learning animation. There’s a million easily accessible ways to start animating, but one of my favourite exercises is the 9 frame animated morph. Here’s a couple of examples freshly completed by my wonderful illustration students as a one lesson introduction to animation.

To start with everyone drew a simple image, then we arranged them in the best order to get silly transitions. I then photocopied each persons drawings so that everyone had their image and the image theirs was to morph into. We then traced off a breakdown pose and inbetweens which cushion to the first and last drawings to give them a nice ease in and out (see the above chart). We also used pegboards which I made myself to match the size of a standard 80mm hole punch to ensure that all of the drawings would line up with each other (it’s an illustration course and we only do a tiny amount of animation so there’s no justification for $700 hole punches).

Do any of you want one of these pegboards? I made a couple of hundred a few years ago but now I’m down to just enough for my classes, if there’s enough interest I could make another batch and sell them for a couple of bucks plus postage?
