This Drawn animation tutorial in real time is the Seventh in a series where I animate an entire scene. Using Adobe Flash CS6 and a Wacom Cintiq I show how to draw over the rough animation that I tied down in the second tutorial. I select the key and Break down drawings and start to draw in a more detailed version of the character over them. This episode focuses particularly on the process of in between drawings and utilising the light box in order to draw lines in certain places. I also outline that the lightbox must be utilised intelligently and switched off in order to see the drawing in context and address volume and consistency issues via flipping back and forth between drawings. I close by identifying other factors that an assistant animator needs to be aware of and must have as a required skillset. character model and construction.

Using Adobe Flash CS6 and a Wacom Cintiq I show how to draw over the rough animation that I tied down in the second tutorial. I select the key and Break down drawings and start to draw in a more detailed version of the character over them. I also talk about the objectivity of producing character animation and state that it is, in essence, the expression of character through motion. I emphasise that the animator is essentially an actor expressing the performance through the lines that are being drawn and that the performance is part of a bigger picture called storytelling. I also talk about the process of hand drawn animation in its relation to the amount of emphases placed on software by many beginners and animation enthusiasts.
