Animation Tutorial

sadlittleman:

Alright, here’s my answer to, “How do you animate?” I cover a scant few fundamentals and how to use Photoshop to both arrange your traditional drawings into an animation as well as how to just draw your animation in photoshop.

Images that are not mine are credited. The rest are screen shots.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Recommended watching for animation students and enthusiasts.

My previous post about books was pretty popular so I thought I’d recommend some videos too. I’ve spent a lot of time and money on bad resources, and I think these are genuinely the best available on each subject.

I made a tutorial about mixing colors when painting! It’s really long and rambly and probably repeats itself a lot, but maybe it’ll be helpful to somebody. It’s intended for people who already have a basic understanding of color theory, so I might recommend this tutorial by gawki if you don’t already know the basics.

Was talking to a Nubbas about how do and don’ts really help a lot. Especially when they are explained.
With paintings you learn never go half and half with values ( Go 1/3rd dark or 1/3rd light) or composition (So many people talk about breaking up images in 3rds). Why? Emphasis. Emphasis helps with storytelling. Half and half it’s the same amount and boring. But big portion versus small portion= Emphasis. Same with contrast. Contrast helps tells story. Things like this really help with problem solving.
