We all remember traditional animation, that was carried out with hand drawn art. A group of animators illustrated and colored the photos on celluloid. The celluloid was transparent sheets, the location where the hand drawings were transferred. Each of these "cells", as they were called, were then photographed individually using a super 8 or Oxford camera. Whew ! Lots of work? Well eventually, technology has allowed animators to make use of CGI or Computer Generated Imagery to change the "painful" frustrating work of the past. you may need: -standard 2B pencil (any pencil can do, whether or not this says 2B) -mechanical pencil (for fine lines) -6B or 8B pencil, for those rich dark areas -Q-tips (for shading the skin. try taking some from the cotton off the end in the Q-tip to get a more defined line) -Eraser (I would suggest a kneaded eraser. It comes in handy for your eyes and lips)
