This is my entry for the 11 Second Club.
It is not meant to be played at full screen in HD but you can do so if you like.
I find that sharp rough lines are somewhat contradictory. So I recommend to turn HD OFF or not to watch it in full screen mode.
This animation was done for the Wacom “Pioneers of Now” Contest (July 2013).
The Rules were: To participate, submit a self-portrait in any medium, that represents your “Pioneers of Now” spirit.
Here is a short description of my procedure:
First I did some rough sketches of all the characters, trees and houses. Then I cut all the parts out, which would be animated and imported them into FLASH. In FLASH I moved the parts to get the timing right.
After I had my timing, I exported a png-sequence and imported it back into TVpaint. Then I animated all the characters and other “parts” in TVpaint and colored them. The last to do was to place all the animation frame by frame on the right spot as I timed it out in FLASH.
Here is the final image (at 66%):
I have been using Tvpaint for quite a while now to do my animation but this time I tried out the tools to do a BG sketch.
The pencil and pastel tools look quite natural in my opinion.
!SPOILER ALERT! some scenes spoil some riddles in the game! This is a demo of the the work I did in 2012 for Deadalic Entertainment. (Deponia is a 2D Point and Click Adventure Game) deponia.de
My father has this small funny dog who is jumping around and shaking off something all the time -although she is dry. So Ewa thought it would be funny, if a dog would shake and then take off like a helicopter or airplane.
Ewa helped me with the character design and with some other decisions :D. Below you see the end result!
Happy Holiday everyone, I hope you have a relaxing time.
