Tigers and Shapes
Oh Sh**, there is a mad Tiger coming for me, I'm about to be eaten... but wait, look at the shape change and the line of action... I doubt that is what I'd be saying if I were in my last seconds before I got clawed by a tiger, but I saw this sequence of images in this months National Geographic and was very impressed at how amazing the design of the "poses" were. Shape change in animation is so important. Getting a good change between poses is something I try to look for. Reversals are something that are talked about alot in animation. This is just another way of changing the shape of your character. On this tiger, you can clearly see the shape changes which are happening in her body and limbs.
Just thought this was a great image.
