Follow Through and Overlapping Action: Research 2
I've been trying to think of a good 3D example of follow through and overlapping action. Can't believe it took me so long to think of Disney's Tangled!!
Her hair is a signature part of the Rapunzel as well as an extension of her character so it was vital they got it right. The way she throws it around and uses it requires plenty of overlapping action and follow through. Take this video as an example. When she travels down her own hair she's going so fast she almost leaves part of her own hair in the dust! And when she suddenly stops just before touching the ground, the weight and 'realness' is portrayed very nicely in the follow through.
I also found this digital tutors video on follow through and overlapping action. It shows the principle very clearly using a 3D rope. This will be quite handy for the presentation and the pendulum assignment.
