well i mean
pokemon isnt the best example
I WAS NOT
HTE GIF FITS SO WELL IM FUFCKCING
holy crap this is the best thing since Bacon Pancakes in New York
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 :)

I don’t think I can add anything that these images haven’t screamed into my face~
First (17?) Pages are up. Though some of it you might have seen already…
Tomb Raider facts
Omg whoever made these I love you.
aw is this official? some cute their ad campaign is trying to be lighthearted and funny undo the stir of bad publicity caused by this footage of her getting impaled through the neck by a spike?
“aww but that’s what tomb raider is all about” yeah, sure, but still, they’re trying to clean up their image after the backlash it caused. I think they responded by upping her official age or something so the raping and impalement and shit didn’t happen to an underage girl, but yknow, whatever, it’s just a game
to the people about to bitch at me, think of it this way: did the necessity of this in the game really outweigh the backlash they’ve been getting for it?
Yes. The answer is yes. Also I don’t think she was underage in that game. Also she doesn’t get raped. Either play the game. Watch someone else play the game. Or Shut The Fuck Up until you know what you’re talking about.
The green avatars represent the green-screen, a key tool in visual effects moviemaking.
Changing your avatar to a green-screen represents solidarity with the computer graphics industry which is currently being plagued by bankruptcy and layoffs (like what happened to me last week ORZ…): Digital Domain, Sony Entertainment, DreamWorks Animation, Pixomondo, Zynga, and more.
The “greenscreen movement” is largely prompted by bankruptcy of Rhythm and Hues, the company responsible for two Oscar-nominated movies this year: Snow White and the Huntsman and Life of Pi. Just weeks before the ceremonies, much of their staff (the people that made those movie!) got laid off - many of those workers picketed outside the Academy on Oscar’s night. Insult was added to injury when Life of Pi won an Oscar for ‘Best Visual Effects’ and the winner’s acceptance speech was cut short as soon as he mentioned the financial issues at R&H (it may not have been intentional, but it still read terribly!).
VFX is highly competitive. When a studio wants to make a movie, VFX houses name a price they can do the work for. Obviously, studios want lower prices and faster work, so VFX houses frequently under-bid each other and ask for unreasonable workdays. Studios thus get more demanding and drive prices into unsustainable territories. In addition, some areas provide subsidies for local VFX work - up to 30%! - meaning studios only have to pay for 70% of the movie. Taxpayers cover the rest. So globally, it’s an uneven playing field. California doesn’t give subsidies, so established Hollywood houses are losing bids that were already too low to begin with. This Reddit post does an amazing job explaining the situation.
While layoffs are familiar in project-based industry, this is a LOT in just a few months, and it brings an unhealthy business model to public light. I encourage you - if you want to work in this field or simply enjoy VFX movies - to research and appreciate the work that goes into them - and maybe we can collectively hope for change.

This makes me sad.
Logo for my new comics page.
So I figure I should create a separate blog for my comic stuff… I only very rarely do anything illustrative and I will probably still post that stuff here, but for comics (if anyone’s interested) you should go here: http://cloudsequentialpictures.tumblr.com/
