Action Analysis

for Animators


Welcome to the companion site for Chris Webster's Action Analysis for Animators. Action analysis is one of the fundamental principles of animation that underpins all types of animation, whether it's 2D or 3D, digital or traditional. This website is designed to provide further demonstration as to how humans, animals, and even inanimate objects appear while in motion. You'll find action stills of humans and animals here to help you analyze each and every shape a form takes as it walks or jumps. You'll also find videos of humans , birds, dogs, and horses in motion , as well as clay breaking, a candle melting, and grains falling. What more could you ask for?!
