Topic: Relax when you're animating

Well, I'm very surprised that I didn't see this thread in the forums, so I create it.

RELAX WHEN YOU'RE ANIMATING


For me, relaxing the body it's a very important part to obtain a better finale result.

What you do to relax after, before and while you're animating?


I'm not a professional, but I do stretches and this, the "semi supine position"

Listening to music is a great way to relax while animating.

I remove most of my clothing.  It violates the "wear dark colors while animating" tip to avoid light flicker, but I run hot and it's uncomfortable for me to sit in the "studio" all constrained.

Also, the music works wonders.

I completely agree, Mike!

Re: Relax when you're animating

Animating itself is very relaxing for me. I don't even listen to music while animating because it often distracts me mini/eek

Re: Relax when you're animating

Listening to my favourite music works wonders. Podcasts such as the Brickfilmer's Guild podcast and the Frame100 podcasts is also something I like to listen to. I tend to give myself a 4 hour schedule when I animate, and take a half hour break in between. Taking a break is also important.

Re: Relax when you're animating

Like what has already been said, I LOVE listening to either music or brickfilming podcasts/livestreams. Although Ice Fox, you are right ins saying that it can sometimes distract you a little bit! mini/yes

Haha, I totally understand this though. I'm in Los Angeles area. Animating in the summertime in a 10' x 9' room on the south side of the house with computer and lights running, and no AC? Dark clothing is a luxury, my friends. mini/tongue
