Time & Motion: Dave Herman


“Sonic the Hedgehog” by Archie.

This page from Archie’s famous comic Sonic the Hedgehog demonstrates both time and motion very well. in the first frame Sonic is shown running, but the audience only knows that because of his stance and the lines following behind him. The second and only other frame on the page shows motion in a much different way. The bottom frame actually contains nine separate Sonic’s with lines leading from one to the next. This helps show Sonic’s movement through the forest, then into a stump, then underground, and then what appears to be outside again. The artist also uses non-dialouge words to imitate sounds which often result from movement and inertia.
