Study an Animal’s Movements for Accuracy
While working as an animator, I made thousands of line drawings of dogs and foxes for the animated film The Plague Dogs
, and I had the idea of making a poster called "Animals in Motion." To get the positions just right, I studied the movement using nature books and videos, tracking books and Eadweard Muybridge’s photographs. I used Muybridge’s galloping horse photos for the zebra’s positions, as well as various zebra photos for other details. I made up some of the movement (as in the tail) using my experience as an animator. Working on an animation disc with registration pegs, I started by creating six line drawings and then made sure that the movement was accurate by flipping the drawings in sequence. Then I transferred the six line drawings to a piece of coquille paper, painted a base of pale watercolor first, and shaded with colored pencil.
