Anime Study

After drooling over amazing fight scenes with crazy camera moves from various anime shows, I decided to try doing a study of one. I picked a shot from the fight between Ryuko and Satsuki in Kill La Kill and redrew most of the frames. It was an interesting experience and I'm still ruminating on things I've learned from doing it. The exercise definitely pushed me to use more foreshortening than I've ever used when drawing, let alone animating. It also seems like as long as the arcs of the main action are reading, then everything else can be kind of crazy?
