Before one begins a traditional, hand-drawn animation it is important to develop a model sheet for the characters that will be used. I animated a simple footstep this summer for my Action Analysis class with former Disney supervising effects animator Troy Gustafson and as part of the assignment we had to develop a model sheet for a realistic human foot and hand. The basic shapes used construct the foot and hand are critical for maintaining continuity and volume from frame to frame. I must have made a good impression because from now on Troy hands out these very model sheets to every student who takes this class.
