But on a more serious note, I'm actually pretty simple. My blog only says so much (and I only post so often), so I'd rather have you guys talk to me and find out what I'm really like and all.
It reduces the sound of the glass breaking and keeps the glass pieces from spraying all over the place. Basically, a clean way to break into someone’s house via window.
that’s cool but the window is clearly fucking open, why did he break the glass in the first place is the question.
My lovely followers, please follow this blog immediately!
Anxiety is such a killer. Murder of my mind, paranoia of my heart.
These days, my life is one big shade of grey. I used to have a colorful heart but my lungs don’t breath excitement as they once did. It’s been overwhelmed by this poisonous reality, this boring air I now breath.
I need an escape.
It’s okay to be depressed. It’s okay to not be okay. But you can’t let it control you forever. Because if you do, it’ll stop you from living life. And an unfulfilled life is such a pitiful thing.
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 :)
Ack, I completely forgot to add that before you guys do backgrounds and animation and after you have a satisfactory storyboard animatic, it’s good to come up with a colour-script for your film so you know how your film feels with which colours, etc.
This was some of the colour script for my film:
sorry, it was late last night and I forgot D;
It’s sad to see you’re doing well; it gets to me.
