Clicking and Bopping Away

I animated this as an avatar for myself, to practice animating in After Effects. I haven’t messed with that program in a long time and I was missing it.

The most difficult part of this animation was dialing back the bouncing on the ball becauseĀ  after spending the time to rig the character, I really wanted some extremes, but knew that was just too much.

The art was sketched on paper, then re-drawn in Photoshop to clean it up, then drawn in pieces in Illustrator, and then imported into After Effects and rigged with the free DUIK plugin.
