Here are 7 Tips and Tricks that will help you in the process of animation.

1. Plan:

1. Plan You should know accurately what you have to do before starting the animation. So before starting animated, you should: 1. Take notes and write what exact movements of the character. 2. Imagine how the scene will play out and write down all interesting things.

3. Draw some thumbnails and figure out the character’s gestures, and last but not the least thing about the timing, how much time each section will take to happen. If you follow this steps, you will transform the concept into the scenario, and then you can give life to your imagination.

2. Push the Animations to Limit:

2. Push the Animations to Limit For more interesting animations you should use the extremes exaggeration, attraction, etc., think of other’s people reaction and take them to the limit. If animations use the realistic expressions and movements, they don't succeed because people are familiar with those gestures and they are not impressed.

Extreme animations draw the attention of the audience and surely will have more success.

3. Make all More Alive and Bouncy:

3. Make all More Alive and Bouncy When the animating you have to be careful at the character, not to look rigid. Even if is a simple animation you should do more and always keep the character moving.

5. Create Strong Key frames:

5. Create Strong Key frames When animating the sprites, it is necessary to have strong and extreme key frames to highlight the particular movement. For a great animation, you must be careful at sprites to be all in order, not to have an arm inside the torso area, etc.

6. Limit Animation’s Frames:

6. Limit Animation’s Frames Animators may sometimes exaggerate with key frames, and they tend to add too many because they think it will have a more impact on the animation. But this is not always a good thing, and you have to limit the number of frames and highlight the important movements.

7. Don’t Care Too Much About the Craft:

7. Don’t Care Too Much About the Craft On 2D games( Gaming Designing ), animators can care too much about the craft, particular details and lose sight of the content. You should give more attention to the whole image, to take care it transmit the wanted message to the viewers.
