Working with the Mouse
Some designers are accustomed to working without the use of a tablet or scanned artwork. Using a mouse or trackball to draw can limit an animator's ability to create loose dimensional shapes, which form the building blocks for great character animation. Many designers, however, enjoy the control of creating even shapes and lines with the Shape tools that are offered by a mouse or trackball. This method tends to result in a flatter style of artwork, similar to that featured at http://www.mishmashmedia.com.
