    Quickest way to improvement? Practice. It’s a simple bit of advice that rings with absolute truth. Articles, tips, mentors, and study will never get you as far as rolling up your sleeves and getting down to work, be it animation or any other skill. Today we’ve compiled a list of exercises, like animation push-ups, that will get your art skills buff and toned.

    Maybe you still need convinced of how important the “Art of Doing” is? Look no further than the early days of animation, especially at the Disney studio. Here were a group of animators (before being an animator was even a thing) who HAD no books to read, or websites to visit, or even experienced animators to ask. They learned via the age old art of hands-on training, experimenting and discovering as they went. And some would argue they created some of the greatest animation to ever be seen. Masterpieces like the dwarfs dancing in Snow White or the terror of the Monstro scene in Pinocchio. So be like them! Get out there and do animation!


    Some of these exercises you may have done or seen before; some maybe not. Consider doing each of them, even if you did once previously, because returning to an old exercise to see how much you’ve progressed is a very valuable experience.

    Level 1 Exercises

    (Do not discount their simplicity! Here you have the principals of animation, which all other animation is built on. They are worth your time and effort.)

    1. Ball Bouncing in place, no decay (loop)
    2. Ball Bouncing across the screen
    3. Brick falling from a shelf onto the ground
    4. Simple character head turn
    5. Character head turn with anticipation
    6. Character blinking
    7. Character thinking [tougher than it sounds!]
    8. Flour Sack waving (loop)
    9. Flour Sack jumping
    10. Flour Sack falling (loop or hitting the ground)
    11. Flour Sack kicking a ball
    Level 2 Exercises
    1. Change in Character emotion (happy to sad, sad to angry, etc.)
    2. Character jumping over a gap
    3. Standing up (from a chair)
    4. Walk Cycle [oldie but goodie!]
    5. Character on a pogo stick (loop)
    6. Laughing
    7. Sneezing
    8. Reaching for an object on a shelf overhead
    9. Quick motion smear/blur
    10. Taking a deep breath [also tougher than it sounds!]
    11. A tree falling
    12. Character being hit by something simple (ball, brick, book)
    13. Run Cycle
    Level 3 Exercises
    1. Close up of open hand closing into fist
    2. Close up of hand picking up a small object

    7. Stirring a soup pot and tasting from a spoon
    8. Character blowing up a balloon

    2. Object falling into a body of water
    3. Two characters playing tug-of-war
    4. Character dealing a deck of cards out
    5. The full process of brushing one’s teeth
    6. A single piece of paper dropping through the air
    7. Run across screen with change in direction
    8. Sleeping character startled by alarm then returning to sleepy state
    9. Opening a cupboard and removing something inside
    10. Putting on a pair of pants
    11. Opening the “world’s best gift” and reacting
    12. Any of the above exercises using a very heavy character/object next to a very light character/object. Enhance the differences the weight change makes!
    Things to keep in mind:
    • Reading these exercises will do as much for you as reading about push-ups would do for your physical muscles: NOTHING. If you want the benefit, you must animate them. Take a deep breath and just do it.
    • Do not forget the famous words of Ollie Johnston: “You’re not supposed to animate drawings [3D models]. You’re supposed to animate feelings.” If a character isn’t thinking, they aren’t alive, and the animation has failed.
    • Keep it simple! There is no reason to over complicate any of these exercises. Going back to push-ups, would push-ups be harder if while doing them you also recited the Gettysburg Address? Yes. Would they be any more beneficial? No. Keep things nice and simple and clear.
    • Do your best. There is no reason to do these exercises poorly. Give it your all. You don’t have to show anyone, these are for you. You owe it to yourself to try your very best. Something not quite right? Take the time to fix it.
    • As always, have fun. Push ups are not fun. Animation is supposed to be. Be joyful in your work!

    Have any questions about the exercises above? Leave a comment below and we’ll answer them the best we can! Someone else may be wondering the exact same thing, so you’ll help them too. Likewise if someone is looking for possible exercises, why not share a link to these and give them a hand?
