Peer Critique Review

In this piece made by Austin Clay his Norman model has a great amount of ease in and ease out, in the legs and arms. Also, there is a good amount of anticipation with a mixture of follow through in the legs. Even though that there seems to be not any major issues with the looping animation, it does not do what the title suggest, loop. Which would be a major problem because it makes all the minor issues pop out more than they usually would if it was looped. Also because of the animation not looping, it makes it apparent that Norman’s foot does not really move like a person would and it causes his foot to skip a frame. Overall I give Austin’s looping animation a seven out of ten, “It was ok” review.

Even though that these three historic pieces are from completely different time periods. They all have some things in common, like Medicine Buddha and Gakki-Ron use many Kanji characters. These works almost use the same exact process in making these, like the medium used and the symbolism used within the characters. What they would do is use a rectangle piece of paper held down by a paper weight. Then they would use a specific brush called fude which is made of goat fur which then they patiently start drawing their characters in stroke order with the ink they grinded down. There are different types of calligraphy, like the United States, such as script, semi-script, block, and the various forms of characters.
