One of 12 tutorials made for the SpongeBob crew during the fourth season. LINE OF ACTION is one of the most important concepts in making your drawings come alive.
I first encountered the notion of the "line of action" in the classic animation book by Preston Blair. He was an animator for Disney and MGM, and he popularized the concepts that were developed and being used every day by the masters of Golden Age animation.
The good news is that this book is available for free online, and the specific page you'll want to look at is about a third of the way down on this page>>>[link]
<<< Check it out and let me know what you think!
