Snowman

An animation digitized from original drawings for my animation class at the Columbus College of Art and Design. It is an example of a «metamorphosis» handles in a way more interesting than simple shape-changing. Morphing software could do something similar, but the point is to add a little personality and extra accents to the motion. (In my animation, one element, the snowman's hat, stays the same thru all stages of the metamorphosis). It is also a minor example of squash and stretch and motion tension (the «rubbery» quality of the snowman and the ice block).
