I‘ve drawn 5 characters by photoshop, actually, it’s the first time I use After Effects to animate the expression. So it becomes my second weakness, the first one is movements, it always bother me. Now I am gonna challenge myself, using After Effects to create all the movements.
This clip looks not bad, I still check and modify the movements again and again. I have faced the mirror to do the crying reference for myself.
After tutorial with Steve, I got an idea about the cinema scene. I decided to create some audience around my character. People are all crying but my character has no feeling. It could show his emotionless. These pictures are the reference I download from internet and the sketch I just draw.
VERY EXAGGERATING CRY
Recently I have seen too much black and white, because my final project is the first time that I draw black and white animation. After finish it I’d like to try this clourful style. It looks like a hand drawing stop-motion, I like it so much!
This is another style I’d like to try, I always have something similar like this. But this one is so good, no matter the editing or the music matching.
I am not sure if it is the last version of animatics or not:( We still have tutorial every week, every time we get the different feedback. But it is the most important thing for us animator, we need the opinion from the audience who have watched our animation. In fact, there are so many audience, all kinds of people, hearing different voice could help us make our work better.
This animatics I put the new scenes in it, for example the street long shot, food and wine shop and cinema.
