Hi jay….I am Jeet I had attend your seminar yesterday, it was awesome and so rocking,I really enjoy talking with you in those 1 and half hours….during question hours I forgot to ask one question.. so my question is
Q. How blinking of eyes in animation is important and when to do it?
(means how do I know at particular moment my character should blink his eyes)
Hey Jeet; Thanks! regarding the eyes.. absolutely essential to bringing life to a sentient being/ creature etc.. if you study the eye movement in pixar films- the animators utilize slight darting of the pupil/ iris combined with blinks. These elements/ actions convey thinking, contemplation. Not being an animator myself ..or knowing what you’re animating I can’t say what the best moments to apply blinks would be. I’d say study the films and let those guide you. best, jshu
