Need to practice
- Show heads and head shapes from different angles
- Play with shadows and highlights more
- Add details to clothing/skin/etc
- Stop making things look so flat - play around with addition (or not) of textures
- Try using some new brushes
- Try to add forshortening (blur things in the background)

So you want to create an anime?

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 5, 2014, 6:17 AM
  • Mood: Artistic

Okay, so I’m going to explain a few things about animation here. I don’t want to shatter people’s dreams, so sorry if I do! But this is going to be a whole bunch of truths.

I’m sure that if you put your mind to it, it would be possible for anyone to create their own animation, but one key element people seem to miss out: Time. I’ve spoken to quite a lot of people who want to animate their own series or episode, which is brilliant that they have the animation, but to create something that long alone would take months, or even years.

To create a 24fps animation for a 20 minute episode (An average anime episode), we’re looking at least a month planning and research, another month creating a rough version of the animation (an animatic), and then about 6 months or more actually creating and finishing the animation. Which totals to 8 months.

To work at 12fps for the same thing would be about a month planning and research, a month creating a rough version, and maybe 3 months creating the animation.

For my own animations I don’t really stick to frames per second, as most of my animations loop. For example on this animation: fav.me/d7u09p4 you can clearly see where it loops. The particular animated points are:

    -          Dust

    -          Fire

    -          Collar

    -          Glowing eyes

    -          Light from the fire on the character’s face

Each of those individual animations took over an hour to create, and that’s just for an animation this short!

Looking at another animation, one which didn’t loop at all, that obviously took a lot longer: fav.me/d7l59gy This one, including pre production, research and everything else took around 3 months. The actual animating part took 3 weeks, working for 8+ hours a day.

I respect anyone who would like to create and animation, but most people don’t seem to understand that it’s not a smooth ride in the slightest.
 

I plan to make a youtube video talking about animation, what I do, and how I create it very soon, which will be posted on my channel: www.youtube.com/channel/UCbIBc…

I would appreciate feedback as well as if you guys follow the information I give you!

The main programs I use (for animation) are

    -          Paint Tool Sai. I create the actual drawings in this for each frame.

    -          Photoshop CS6. In this I use the ‘timeline’ to make sure that my animation looks like something is moving, and I tidy everything up. I also save each individual frame as a .png.

    -          Premiere Pro CS6. This is where I import the images in, and line them up. I edit anything which needs tweaking, and add sound effects and background music here.

 

Here I’m going to name a few things to stay away from when animating:

    -          Programs which claim that it’s ‘easy’ to make animations. It’s not, so don’t waste your money.

    -          Stay away from programs where the final product examples look bad. If they are advertising their ‘best work’ and it looks awful, yours isn’t going to look much better.

    -          Remember that if it’s free or really cheap, that’s what you need to expect. A cheap program. You don’t necessarily have to spend a lot. But a program which costs £5 isn’t going to be amazing.

 

I really hope this helps give an idea and some perspective on everything. I’m happy to answer questions about animations and I’m happy to talk someone through the animating process for a while if they get stuck. Happy animating!

Hey there, hopefully you’ll be able to learn a few things about me here. I love getting notes, or getting tagged in things, so don’t feel that you’d be rude doing so :)

Well, my name is Natalie! I love dragons, and the colours blue and turquoise.
My main style of art is digital semi-realism art. I bought a tablet, which makes the quality of my art improve (I hope!).

I do commissions which you’ll be able to view looking in the donations pool, or if you look in my to do list (bottom left). I try not to charge too much because I started with 0 points too :) .

Also, I’d like to mention that I don’t use bases, and I won’t comment on art where bases have been used :) A baby can colour in an outline, so I really don’t think it’s worth my comment.
If I ever do make a base, or a reference for someone to look at (for pose, etc) then I’ll clearly state where it is. If you actually use this piece of art, then I would like to be credited and have a link to it please :) . I like to know what happens to my things.

The points I earn I will buy things with or commission people or even donate it to someone! But do not ask. Don’t ask me for points, because you will be told that I have better things to spend my points on. I work very hard on my commissions, and it’d be nice if people did too, instead of asking people for it.
