Conclusion:
To create an illustration of a movement is simple, but to give life to a movement requires much sensibility, hard work, and perseverance. This project does not aim toward requiring a lot of techniques but acts as a springboard to further explorations, to inspire students to have broad foundation views, encouraging students to find their way to creative expression through the medium of animation.
