The Twelve Principles of Animation: Follow Through and Overlapping Action Ideas

Here is one of My ideas for the Follow Through and Overlapping Action:

Bow

The Bow was chosen due to the fact that it display both of the action for this single principle effectively and simply and this can be proven if you look carefully at the the arm and the bow in the image for example the Follow Through motion is displayed with both the arm and bow string and this can be seen when the arm pulls the sting and releases it both the arm and string shake for a while and this indicates the Follow Through Action. While the Overlapping Action which is often associated with the movement of items that the characters are wearing or carrying during and after the movement of the character or their interaction, this is seen with the clothing on the arm and the bandages that are wrapped around the bow. The Overlapping Action can be seen when the arm of the character is moving backwards because the clothing on the arm of the ripples and slides up the arm ever so slightly when the bow string is been pulled back and the the bandages on the bow swing back and forth when the bow String is pulled back by the arm and when the bow string is released.
