Ducks - student project

Words can't describe how much I love these ducks!

Thanks Emanuele for this class, this is my third animation in After Effects and I learned a heap! I especially liked adding the follow through with the expressions, and the secondary action on the feathers etc, all the principles you went through really helped me focus on how to make each motion look more realistic and fun. And parenting all my layers and altering the anchor points before starting was so helpful. The only thing I wanted to add was a puppet warp on the wings as they flap, but I couldn't get it to work without breaking the wing into pieces, so it's something I just need to practice more with. I look forward to more animating!
