Fun with Pixel Animation/Running Animation Tutorial!

silhouettegames:

Here’s a little window into how I work when I’m animating (sort of a tutorial, I guess). I’ve been really trying to nail Roku’s running animation, since players will be looking at it all the time, but every time I look at someone else’s work to do this, it feels like I’m copying.

In order to solve that problem, I decided to animate her from scratch using techniques that I learned as a kid and then solidified when I was an animation student at LMU for about a month doing pencil & paper animation and shooting it with a camera and recording it to videotape.

I wasn’t getting the look that I wanted. I couldn’t find a good model to reference and again I feared that if I looked at anything that was out there I’d just be copying or altering rather than creating.

Then the other night I noticed that if I curled my finger, it actually looked a lot like a running leg - the joints matched up perfectly in fact!

leg progress. buhhhh

still have to extend the hooves, shape all the foam on my shin/foot, maybe trim the back foam piece on my calf. 

cubewatermelon:

Some people were askin’ about my coloring process ‘cause of the latest Table Titans comic, so I thought I’d try to detail it a little bit.

This is all done in photoshop cs4 with an intuos tablet.

Pages involving magic usually take the longest to color, but they’re also the most fun :)

I’ve been asked a lot about how I draw hoods, mostly Talon’s hood, so I hope this helps a little? Just a pretty basic thing but hey there ya go

Hoods are pretty cool, they usually have a lot of variety in how they can look (and sometimes people even wear two hoods at once) so just get creative with it and have fun

MIGHTY NEED

sutoart:

Please keep in mind that I’m not a professional or anything!

I just took some art classes when I was younger, so these are just a few things I remember or have learned since then!

Anyways, this ‘tutorial’ is just something I made very quickly…and I’m not good at explaining or teaching.

So please don’t take this seriously lol 

nemurism:

Sorry for my late reply! There are 5 types of drawing style at my artwork. Almost I use preset brush, but sometimes I look for good free brush from PhotoshopBrushes.com. And You can customize and make any type brushes in Photoshop’s brush window! I hope this pict would be help of your drawing.=D

The long awaited drawing tutorial/walkthrough thing is finally here!!

The full tutorial can be viewed here: http://shilin.net/tango.php
The accompanying time lapse video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5o1AsmZ5DE
Finished piece: http://okolnir.net/post/48480166040/

WHAT THIS IS:
Last year around may, I hit 10k likes on facebook and I promised to create a new drawing video/tutorial of my drawing process, since my last one was like 8 years ago LOL;; It took a lot longer than I expected to complete because I had so much other work to do in the last half of the year, and I did not want to half ass the tutorial and waste everybody’s time, so it took until now to finish. I’m so sorry for the delay, but 74k more likes later (how the hell did that happen) it’s finally done!!

The video itself is a plain time lapse video with no annotation or anything, from blank canvas to completion. The tutorial link contains screenshots, explanations, links, and gifs walking through the whole drawing process. It also contains links to specific parts of the video so you don’t have to search the whole grueling 2 hour video for information. But the entire video is there in a slow ish speed so that you can look for whatever insignificant part of my drawing process for information if you need to.

So yes, this is dedicated to all my followers! Thank you guys for all your support over the years, I hope this gives some of you new things to try out in your drawing process or new tools to try your hands on! Work hard everyone :D

So tiny. Text for ants.
