The Art of Thumbnailing
Good animation begins with good planning. One of the first things an animator should do is thumbnail his
scene. By thumbnailing we mean creating small quick drawings which provide a blueprint for the poses in the
scene.
By working small and rough the animator can try out a number of different poses and come up with the best
approach to the scene before committing to animation. This is the stage where problems in staging and
acting can be resolved. Once you have worked out the action at this small size it is easy to blow it up on the
xerox machine and paste it up to start your scene.
This set of notes shows a sequence from Disney’s Rescuers where the animator has worked out his staging
and action in a series of great thumbnails.
