The five recognized colors of Fjords (L to R): Red Dun, Dunalino, Grey (Grulla?), Bay Dun, and Buckskin Dun.
I was looking at Fjords in the area yesterday *.* I want one so bad
Here is a fancy witch to celebrate having a new tablet (and Harry Potter Jo/Rowling’s birthday too :) ) And who could go wrong with that bird hat, right? I’m forever on a quest to push my paint application to a stronger place … One step forward
beautiful *as always* <33
Tuesday Tips - TEETH!
Always a good tool to have in your “drawing arsenal”. In general, less in more. The less you pay attention to the individual teeth, the better. But, sometimes, a certain character or situation will call upon your knowledge of the pearly whites.
The whole film took me altogether about 5 grueling months (usually 10-12hours a day) to do. I often felt my butt was going to grow into the chair I usually sat at.
Please note that this was simply my way of doing my film to achieve the soft-shaded style I wanted; there are many other ways of doing this and some are a lot faster with different results~! :)
- My film on DeviantArt | My film on Vimeo
- My film gifs on Tumblr
- You can see my storyboard animatic here (although the original had music, but like I mentioned, my placeholder music was by Joe Hisaishi, you know, Miyazaki’s composer, so it’s not really legal to upload it).
This tut differs a bit from my dA version, because tumblr lets me put the combination of gifs and jpegs :D.
Here’s a book that will really help you start animating:
here’s some books that are good for composition, storytelling and colours:
- Dream Worlds: Production Design for Animation
- The Art of Pixar: The Complete Color Scripts and Select Art from 25 Years of Animation
- Prepare to Board! Creating Story and Characters for Animated Features and Shorts
I hope these helped
I ask that no one removes the credit or source for this tutorial/guide please. thanks :)
And this is a keeper! No doubt about that! :)
I’m just gonna put this one on standby
for when I start my senior film!
Let’s revive hand drawn animation! Let’s get the fun and ease back into 2D! You, and the animation community, can now make this awesome dream tool happen!
This seems like a really neat program! I’m sick of having to rely on Flash as my only easy means of animation (yes there is Toon Boom, but I don’t have that). I don’t know about you, but I don’t have all the tools to actually animate on paper (there is more to it than just a peg bar, lots-o-paper, and a pencil). But I absolutely adore (and miss) the look of 2D drawn animation.
So this animation program built by an animator? Seems like a pretty good combo to me.
