I did manage however to hand in the 2d animation projects on time (with the skin of my teeth really). I feel that the cube animation I did may be criticized because the character does a flexing motion when he hits the floor, I did this to make it look like the box is pushing himself off the floor when he lands, but i didn't know whether or not the cube is alowed to be flexible or not. I managed to animate both the cube and the bouncing ball in 12 frames. However the ball was drawn out in 6 frames and then reversed from the ground up. i did this because i didn't see much point in drawing the same 6 frames again, while the cubed animation needed to be drawn differently from the ground up.

I immediately decided to use the images in this book for my 12 frame animation. The two I decided upon were "The Vesica Piscis And The Outline Of The Great Pyramid" and "The Seal Of Babalon". I played around with both ideas until I came to the conclusion I was going to use "The Seal Of Babalon" but only concentrating on the inner symbol because I was more fond of the image and what it represents.
I was almost certain I was going to use this image however before I went into the studio again I played around with some more ideas. One of which was a "Sperm and Egg" combination with a morphing image of a Yin-Yang shape to a heart. I did like the idea but because it was only going to be 12 frames long I scraped it. I also played around with the concept of the chakra's of the human body, beginning with a morph from the chest (which is the 4th heart chakra) out to reveal a person meditating. Again, just like the first idea It seemed to long winded for a 1 second animation so I stayed with the Sacred Geometrical shape idea.
