Episode 24 progress

Looking distorted, Twiggy?

Act 3 is mostly completed, now on to Act 4. Check it here if you don't mind spoilers.

Edit: A no-price to the first person who can tell the name of the animation technique used in that Twiggy pic.

Tainted Ink for the win. It's called stretching. It's an old time-saving frame-by-frame animation technique. Basicaly, for rapid movements, you draw just one in-between frame between your two keyframes, but you stretch your lines from point A to B. It's like a motion blur, but drawn. In this case, Twiggy is turning her head. Out of context it looks weird, but during the animation, it's seemless.

Is it called squash and stretch?

Wow a no-prize? That's some comics nostalgia. Merry Marvel Mayhem Stan Lee style.

I think the words used were "no-price" and I have a pretty fair idea what that means.

Also Johnny Bravo for the win.
