I have produced these guides to help me with animating. All the mouths and hands have been numbered and 'pre-animation' will be planned out with the mouths according to the dialogue. This means that when I animate the character I can concentrate on body language (and selecting the most appropriate hands), secure in the knowledge that the mouths are working. These will be marked out on X-sheets, built in to DragonFrame (Stop Motion) software.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
