Animation Smears by paultervoorde Animation Smears by paultervoorde
When I was scoping through the Eddsworld Wikia,
I saw that someone said that these frames were animation errors. [link]
THEY ARE NOT ERRORS! D':

They are ' Animation Smears '.
I draw these kind of frames/inbetweens to portray extremely fast movements.
Smears are usually only shown for one frame,
so they are pretty hard to spot in cartoons unless you pause the animation.
Besides all that, they are kinda fun to draw. <:

They are definitely not errors.
Some people say they are, but I'll say to them "If they were, then why would the animator need to draw 4 arms?"
I agree, they are Animation Smears. :iconthumbsupplz:

Matt has four arms, the alien guy has jelly arms, Matt has six eyes, Tom has two heads, Matt now has six arms, Edd made a snowman with three eyes and noses, Matt now has three eyes, Edd and Matt now have six eyes, Matt has three eyes again but the middle eye now has two pupils, and the Zombeh has a stretched out face. Can it be safe to say that everybody in the new Eddsworld are now all of a sudden shape-shifters?

Animation Smears?

Fascinating...
I wonder... Do those also appean in 3D animation? I mean, in the more cartoony like animations? I always though, that 24/25 fps is fast enough to portray fast images without these kind of effects. However I think, that in 3D it may be only blurred to make it look like moving fast.

Plus, in Tomska's video, it shows a preview and a bush shaped exactly like Tord's head is near the start of the preview.

People say these are errors, but when they move fast they look fine. They're not errors, just part of animating. But the second to last one made me lol
