Hi There,

Animations means giving life to an inanimate object.

Earlier, due to less of technical assistance, it was the proficiency of an artists, who with the help of his sketches were able to portray animated or moving characters.
So sketching was important.

Now-a-days, sketching is not stressed too much, because technology can give light to your creative ideas.

But sketching helps the mind create and understand movements and gives physical movement to the forms. or characters.

You do not need to be a sketch artists or excellent in sketches, but a basic idea of sketching needs to be mastered, as it will be of great help to you.

In-case, you need to instruct a junior, your sketches must be able to portray what you wish to show.

Also before the actual animated character is born, you may have to get the sketches approved.
So a little knowledge on sketches is important.

Hopes this answers your question.

Wish you all the very best..........
