Hm that was an interesting experiment.
I did this all in Toonboom but I wonder if it's easier to do stuff using aftereffects?
(though the bg I painted in PS)

OK let's see.
Camera functions: Check.
Colour: Check
Glowy things/lighting: hmmmm not so sure about that
Masking: Yeah that too...
Storyboarding: Better than before but still need to improve that.

Colouring takes a longgg timeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Really cool!!

Is the character in front of the tree or behind it? The left arm appears in front of the tree, that is why I am asking

Looks amazing! Your animation is getting impeccable. I think there might be some masking that you missed for the sleeve by the tree that would really help divide the foreground and background. After effects is fun too, the layout is similar to photoshop but it just takes a little to get used to : p

oh yes! I tried doing the mask in Toonboom but I couldn't get it to work for some reason
I'll have to revisit it sometime!

Seen this popping up across the interwebs - looking gorgeous bro!

Yup, colouring takes foreeeeeeeever! What method are you using to do the little flying masks? You could save time by animating those as layers in After Effects or something similar...
Reply
:iconjeffreylai:
jeffreylai Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2013   Filmographer
Thanks man!
Oh? I dunno where else it could be aside from DA.
The masks, I animated on different layers, so the timings abit different from the main body.
I want to learn how to use AfterEffects though! (I probably need a better computer..)

Oh really - thought I saw it on tumblr, FB, maybe it just feels like you're getting out everywhere!

After Effects (and all the compositing/animation software) is just a whole other world to get sucked into ha ha! Happy to answer any questions you have down the line...

I bet this is a lot of work, but it's beautiful to watch. Get some good voice actors on this and haul in the big bucks.
