This revamped version of the previous animation is a real improvement. The changes I made did make it easier to animate. Placing the bowl at the dogs side and placing the dog in the center really helped focus my intention and not having to raise the dog as much when it rubs its eyes. I also added a tree to the right to add more of a background. Another thing that was changed was the direction the bone went. The section at the end where we get a close up of the dog somewhat simplified it (having to fill the area outside the circle) and was inspired by the close up scenes in the Felix the Cat cartoons I watched.
The motion I feel improved the most was the eye rub at frames 55 to 59, with the additional frame between the up and down movements of the hands really clarified what the dog was doing. I feel like another improvement was when the dog was raising and lowering his front paws before and after he rubbed his eyes in frames 49 to 54 and 60 to 63, it really helped not having to raise the dogs body to do the eye rub and it didn’t hinder the shocked expression at all.
