Do the Wave

Day 7 SLIGHT UPDATE: to the quicktime movie

We started looking at wave action today. This is the behavior of a flexible material such as a flag blowing in the wind, loose clothing, long hair, etc. Based upon the example in the book, I did a quick pencil test using a hand snapping a horse whip. The animation can be described as an action travelling down the length of the material, perhaps "telegraphing" would be a good word. In this case, the action of the arm moves from the whip handle, travelling down the length of the whip strand until it snaps. I found a sound effect online and added it to the animation.
