Now I understand that I should have put this within the same topic as the dope sheet pg; but I need an immediate answer to this it’s very important. Now I have been studying animation independently), so I seen some information on drawing in twos. Now I have watched Richard Williams (almost) entire DVD set on animation and I believe I got the hang of it. There is just one thing that still baffles me… drawing in twos. Can someone give me some example of animated movie that was drawn in twos? I apologize for the frequent post (visual learner), and if you ever get the chance to watch the DVD set congrats because that is pretty good (for 5 $200.00 it better be (thanks eBay lol) ^_^

Almost any traditional animated film has scenes animated with a combination of 2's and 1's.

Most animation can be planned on 2's . Anything that is matching to a pan background or really fast action should be done on 1's .

The majority of scenes can be animated on 2's with selective use of 1's when needed. There's no rule that you can't switch back and forth from 1's to 2's within the same scene.

Look at this Frank Thomas scene from The Jungle Book. It's mostly 2's , but has some 1's :
