does anyone care to explain their animation process?
personally i start with

1) Script
2) Audio
3) Character Design
4) Rough Sketch, Key frames.
5) Line Drawings
6) Coloring
7) Backgrounds
8) Touch ups.

if you care to critique mine, or explain yours? i'd love to hear it.

Unless you are making a music video, I would think audio should be built around the animation.

well, considering lip syncing has to my synced to the audio, i need the audio in early so i know how to adjust things around it.

have you ever used a story board instead? i never really saw the difference between that, and a script. but some people say it helps more.

Would you not switch these around so it'll be easier to find a voice to fit the character you want rather than fitting the character to the voice?
