51 Great Animation Exercises – Masterpost

It has been a while since I’ve posted anything new, work has kept me busy and even though I get to do great stuff there I realise more and more that I need to get back to doing things just for fun, to learn in my own time, develop my skills further outside the project.

A colleague of mine pointed me to this article, a collection of animation exercises to work on and improve with. I will be updating this page with links to the individual exercises once I complete (if there is such a thing with animation) each one. I am trying to keep everything loose and keeping my keys in linear.

I will also be posting links for any rigs I create for this little project.
