Bowling Ball Bounce
I've been getting back to relearning the basics of animation. I've done the bouncing ball exercise a few times so I decided to do it again, but with different weights. This one is a bowling ball. I noticed that the arch changes a lot from say a golf ball. After it makes contact with the ground it bounces high up, the rest of the bounces have really small archs. The archs are also more narrow than I'm used to.
Even though bowling balls are flexible at all I did a version with squash and stretch to see how it would look with the timing.
I'll keep working on different ball weights.
The next project I want to work on is the flour sack exercise. I never got to do it while in school, so I want to do it now.
