I found this post the other day and its a great read and insight into another animation workflow. Lots of animators…not just newbies have a hard time defining their workflow and then putting that into text. Jim Levasseur does a great job at it and gives a really great breakdown of his process.
So have a look at some animation workflow.

I saw this little piece by Jean-Denis Haas on his blog Spungella. He shows multiple stages of his animation and gives us a real incite to some of his thoughts on workflow. He uses multiple rigs and combines them in a great way.
This is a quick peak into an animators thought process. So check it out here and
So you probably have seen these posts by David Anthony Gibson about his workflow and process on some of the shots he worked on for Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs BUT….I thought it was worth highlighting here just in case you missed them. So check out the links below.
So I always go back to look at different tutorials on many of the sites and blogs that I follow. Even if I believe that I have a good understanding of certain principles it is always good to go back and revisit them. Just like Keith Lango did on his workflow of breakdowns. Much to his credit, Keith revisited an earlier tutorial that he wrote titled Pose to Pose- Organized Keyframe tutorial. As animators, we are always learning and growing in our craft. The more we animate, the more we practice, the more we learn about this amazing process. What we thought might have worked for us earlier, as it may well have, the more we simplify and perfect our workflow. In this case Keith has done just that as he writes in this follow up tutorial titled Breakdowns Can be Such a Drag (building better overlaps in breakdowns). He goes on to compare his earlier views and techniques with a new and revised one based on more experiance and practice. Not only is it a good tutorial in building overlap into your breakdowns but he is able to show a clear diffrenece in the two different types of workflow. As as animator, I am always trying to perfect my passion with time practice and knowledge. It is not always this easy and clear on how we do this but this tutorial is a great example of that. So check it out and also check out the rest of his tutorials keithlangotutorials. Here it is.
I wanted to highlight a site that has been around for some time and has a really good example and insight into his work flow. It is a breakdown from blocking to final of a shot of Pussy from Shrek. It’s on Justin Barrett’s site and he does a great job of breaking his work flow down into his passes and puts them into quicktime so you can frame by frame it. SWEET! Also check out different examples of work flow under Concepts of The Day category. Check out his STUFF page for more.
