Kick Bug

Usually in animation I am fighting to get people to nor tone down what the previous artist did or them. Layout artists tone down the storyboards Animators tone down the layouts. Assistants tone down the animation until the images on the screen have no life to them.
I never had to worry about this with Kelly Armstrong's animation. I wish I had the layouts to show you, but she actually took the poses much farther.
Usually when I send my poses to another land - even Canada, the animators don't believe the drawings and "fix" them for me by taking out the line of action, specific expressions and exaggeration.
