A couple of figure draws from class.
I felt the need to post this for three reasons:
- 1. people in general asking how I did it
- 2. people questioning if I took a gifset and ran it through photoshop filters
- 3. because I want people to know that its digital art- painted in photoshop- not traditional. In my original post I used the words “hand painted” because I was groggy and exhausted and I wanted to imply each frame is a from-scratch illustration but I think some people took it to mean there are 16 physical hang-on-the-wall paintings of this which there certainly is not. I tried to change the wording but the post kinda went viral before I had a chance to catch myself. Sorry about that. I may be less awesome than you thought. Oh and on a side note this method of animating is called rotoscoping (same method was used in the movie Anastasia).
shit son this must have taken you weeks
AHEM AHEM AHEM!!!
Okay, I don’t mind rotoscoping at all, but saying Anastasia used the same technique AS seen here is very very very incorrect. What Anastasia, and many other animated films at the time did, was shoot the reference and only trace over a FEW of the frames, like every 6-12 frames. They had to improvise the rest. 100% Rotoscoping is ALWAYS easy to spot because of how nothing is exaggerated. See the original animated Hobbit for rotoscoping that is closer to a hundred percent, whereas movies like Anastasia and Sleeping Beauty were maybe traced only 20% of the frames…
Before I hit the hay, here is a test animation for class! The prompt was showing character attitude, and I decided to go with my character Cerce. This is what the hip study was a prelude for.
I think I had the most fun animation the fabric, however. Not referenced, either. I think I have a better feel for SFX Animation than I do actual character animation.
I plan to finish this one, too, and add all the character details and whatnot. I can’t wait to do the hair…
|You seem to know your shit, you do tutorials to help people and your art is just great. Why don't you have more followers? You should have more followers. People should follow you.|
OH GOSH~! Ah, thank you so much!! I’m so glad you find my stuff useful and helpful. I try my best to keep all of this as easy to understand as possible, even if they are so called “advanced techniques.” :3
I want to try this sometime, and so that I don’t forget it, I’m throwing it on here.
gonna share it here too cause i think this is a really interesting way to paint. (ps. this is not 3d)
I’VE BEEN SEARCHING EVERYWHERE FOR THIS TUTORIAL YOU HAVE NO IDEA!!
Complex works of the Venezuelan artist Rafael Araujo
|Could you make a basic anatomy tutorial? Sideviews especially would be great. c:|
I could! :) Right now it’s just a matter of whether I have the time to throw something together.

More art from my friend!
