If you want to draw an animation of a person running or walking, you are going to need to know how to draw each frame, one by one. Use these frame by frame illustrations of a little boy or man walking or running to guide you thru the steps of cartooning or animating a person in motion. This comes from an old animation textbook so you can see how the old masters used to animate cartoons. Have fun!
Today we will learn how to bring our cartoon people figures to life and put them in action. To put a figure in action we use a simple skeleton as a guide and foundation. On the bottom of the illustration pictures for this lesson you will find a number of these little skeletons in different actions and poses. Study each of these little sketches and notice how simple it is to suggest any particular action you want to by using these little figures.
