Currently practicing animation smears. Find my stuff always looks really choppy or when I've tried to blur things doesn't really look right. It's a bit frustrating, feels like learning to draw all over again. But I really hope this pays off.
My biggest hurdle atm is figuring out where to smear. I feel like I'm either doing it too much or too little and I'm stuggling to find that inbetween. I've tried to keep it too when there's a bit space inbetween my previous frame, but that doesn't always seem to work.
Also trying to figure out what KIND of smear to use. I want to find what fits my style best and what's the most fun, but it's conflicting. It all feels hard and complicated, despite seeing people do it easily, but I guess that's just how all art is at first.
