Recording a Throw to the Face
The highlight of the twelfth episode of the Enter Sumo animated series is the stuffed animal hitting Henry’s face. Although this action takes a few seconds there was a lot at work to make it happen. The trajectory of the stuffed animal had to be outlined in the 3D Blender program along with the movement of the recording camera.
Yes, even though the episode looks like simple 2D animation, there’s much more 3D set up that goes into it.
Check the following video to see how I coordinated this activity of throwing and hitting an object.
I hope you find some inspiration and guidance from this videos to make you create your own cartoon. Don’t forget to follow the Enter Sumo show to see how a sumo league in the US is made.
