A pencil test. Work in progress of scene 6 from my hand animated short film; Pickled.
I love how she lets the pressure of the jar against her cheek further open her mouth as she cuddles the jar... I actually took video reference of myself acting out this scene. It's pretty amazing.
I've got scene six to the point that no inbetween is held for more than 4 frames. (Some are 2 and some are 3). Not all the drawings are entirely complete. But I've come a long way and feel pretty good about the scene at this point. I'm tempted to stop creating inbetweens... Which would mean that it's going to look a little chunky... but I don't know. It's daunting to think that about 6 months of free time has gone into this and I'm not done with it yet. I've got the rest of the film to do!
