This is one of the animation assignments I had for my Animation Production class, taught by none other than Gary Goldman. (of Don Bluth Studios, squeeeee!) 'Tis Dirk the Daring, from the Dragon's Lair video game. We were given six drawings of the original animation, and we had to animate using them. We also given exactly 96 frames to complete the sword draw and swing.
Honestly, I can't put into words how much I learned from these assignments and those classes as a whole. The simplicity of the animation assignment can't properly convey it. :3
