Dialogue- lipsync, cleanup in progress

This is what I have done so far:

I added lipsync and expressions and cleaned up the roughs a bit; it's not a proper cleanup, they are still rough lines, but they are more readable this way.
I still need to add some details to the characters and refine the backgrounds and I think it will be ready to hand in.

Dialogue- rough animation (inbetweened)

This is the newest version of animation. The old man's movement is inbetweened and head is added. I also fixed the arms animation on 'food' accent and animated the kid, apart from two or three inbetweens. Boy's hand animation is still missing, and old man's belly has to be added in- I will add these next, probably, and then move on to facial expressions, and then to lipsync, and if I still have time, I will add hair and clothing.

Dialogue- rough animation

This is the newest version. Some frames are missing, this is just the necessary amount of drawings to check the timing, spacing and arcs. Face needs to be added on some frames, too. Some parts of animation need to be fixed, but I am going to leave them alone for now because I spent too much time on them to be able to judge them objectively, and I will move on to other things for now and maybe animate the boy.

Dialogue- rough keys

These are the key poses of the old man character:

There's a little confusion with the backgrounds- that's because I couldn't figure out the right perspective, but that issue is fixed now, next upload will hopefully have the right background.

Dialogue- planning of the animation

These are the thumbnails for the acting for my dialogue piece:

I don't know how to upload sound file to blogger so these sketches can be compared to the actual voice acting by the reader; I will probably upload the sound only with the actual animation tests.

This is a very rough sketch of the steps the old man takes from his position by the cupboard towards the table- the number of steps will be different in the animation, but this sketch just helped me to get the idea of how is that movement supposed to work.

Dialogue- character design- continued

I worked on the designs a little bit more.

Here is the version which is almost final, and some sketches of the character's body and anatomical details

Here I finally got his face right. This is the design I'm going to use- I think it looks a little complicated, but I feel comfortable working with it, I find it easy to operate with and the forms in it are connected in a way that should make them easier to draw from different angles.

This is the final design for the old man and the boy:
