obstacle course with anticipation

A squetchy ball jumping (with anticipation) thru an irregular obstacle course. My 2D re-make of the third AnimationMentor assignment.

Includes a brief bit of "drybrush" motion blur drawn onto the frames with ArtRage Studio's "crayon" brush.

Rigorous physics simulation has taken a back seat here to trying to get the overall flow right. Some these bounces are weightier than others.

This is mostly two's with some brief one's. Not all of the bounces are full Preston Blair-style bounces; they seemed to be killing the momentum of the ball in spots.

damped pendulum started with a hook

A brief exercise in oscillating motion and slowly coming to a stop. This is all on twos except for the very last swing which was just too small to inbetween so it has a couple of fours in it.
