I’ve finally decided to make one because I was getting so many questions on HOW to animate. To be blunt, I only know how to animate one way (timeline animation) in one program (photoshop (cs5)) so if you want an in-depth explanation then you’d be better doing a simple google…
Going through this frame by frame is truly a delight.
9 frames out of the 26 Arin Hanson animated here do not make enough justice, but gosh dang, this guy has just gotten better and better in technique.
He does not only use extreme differences in each still but also makes completely different faces in between, and they actually fucking work.
I want to see more people animate like this.
Little Witch Academia is so gorgeously animated oh my god. It’s part of the “Young Animator Training Project”, which was basically the Japanese government paying new animators to train under masters and make amazing things. The animation director for this one was the ineffable You Yoshinari.
Dudes and Dudettes,
Sorry for the radio silence. I’ve been at home with my family spending some quality time with OUR NEW BABY!! I’m back at work now, but I did get to take a couple of weeks of paternity leave which was amazing. You guys, if you haven’t had a baby you should definitely give it a try. I mean after you get married, that is. Let’s not get carried away here. Anyway, babies are seriously the BEST.
Things at home are super busy these days, but I’ll try to check in with new doodles when I can. Until then be good, everyone!
Sososososososo good and cute
