Hi every one,
I started planning out my scene. not sure if my x-sheet is correct as this is my first time filling out the x-sheet. Am I right that the beat is on the squash?
had very little time to draw but I started thumbnailing. so far I chose the boy mouse. keeping the thumbnails simple. Here is thumbnail one for extreme one.

I think you nailed that pose Gabriel, keep it up.

I started to post some thoughts about your xsheet but realized I didn't know how to properly explain what I was thinking. There is a lesson to be learned there... I'm just not sure how to articulate it here. When it comes to interpreting xsheets it seems I've reached the limits of my competency.
I believe it may have to do with my interpretation of your xsheet more than anything. It seems the areas you have indicated as Stretch, Contact and Squash might be better served by using bracket instead of individual frames?
Perhaps Don can give us some insight into this important area.
As no squash can happen until a contact with something is made, my thoughts focus first and foremost upon that Contact frame. After the contact, the Squash then occurs (slow in/slow out) over the course of the following frames.
It should be noted that I believe you've captured that in your xsheet but it could be easily misinterpreted. As long as the frames you've identified as 'Stretch' and 'Squash' indicate extremes I think you've nailed it!
Looking over to the left however, I see your marks indicating the beat and my brain starts to spin (again) out of control on me. Should the beat occur at the extreme of the squash? Four frames after the Contact? (This is like doing math for me!)
Hope I haven't confused you. If you are scratching your head about my thinking... please ignore me!
I like the enthusiasm you've captured in the Mouse!
He seems quite pleased!
Post more drawings! :)

Can't comment on the X-Sheet still working on understanding it myself. I like the pose of of your thumb though. I look forward to seeing the other thumbs for the extremes as well as you pose test.

thanks Rodney, Richard & Erica,
one other thing I forgot on the x-sheet was to indicate how far to cycle for the pan... yadda yadda yadda.

Gabriel - I was taken aback when I saw your picture of "seth" mouse above by the looseness of the lines but the overal impression being a very clear picture. Really nice drawing.
I just checked out your pose test video and have to say you nailed it. I particularly like drawings 1 & 21 - those look pretty pro!
