This is my 4th year/graduating film from Sheridan College.

I chose to keep my film rough because I really wanted to spend as much of my time as I could animating rather than cleaning up, which is a lot of work. So no, I don't plan on cleaning it and colouring it, as much as I liked my workflow test, it's just too much work 8)
Besides I kinda hate most of it already 8p

You can view it better quality on vimeo here: [link]

Very Beautiful and Well-Animated as Well, I don't know Which Art Style Reminds me of, Either Glen Keane's Animation Style or 'Alvin and the Chipmunks' Style(during 'The Chipmunk Adventure' and the 1987-1990 Seasons), or the Recent Disney Style from the 'Renaissance' to Right Now. But Still, Awesome Work You've Done HereThumbs Up.

what sort of program did you use? and would your choice of program have changed if you had colored it?
Reply
:iconmoonmystique:
moonmystique Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2013
This was done on paper and pencil and then scanned in to the computer. I used a small program someone at my school made to align all the pegs of the paper (the circles and squares of animation paper that keeps them aligned when animating), and then composited it in Digicel Flipbook with the backgrounds and put all the shots together in After Effects.

If I coloured it it would probably have been with Flipbook or Photoshop, not sure.

@02:09It's not finished finished, but it's presentable. I don't know if I will ever get to finish it unfortunately because I feel like there's a lot of stuff I should just completely redo.
If you're still interested though you can find it here: [link]
Thanks so much for the kind words, always warming to hear.

@02:09Oh, that's the one I did see actually! 8) Oh I know what you mean, a few people kept asking if I was going to "finish" mine (though, it WAS finished to how I intended it to be), and I'd rather just redo it than keep working on it further...I would like to make a new film entirely, but it's hard to commit to an idea D: I think your film is looking great, it's much more finished than some people's, I think if you don't feel like it, don't push yourself to do it because it probably won't be that much fun if you're not 100% for doing it.

I'm majoring in electronic imaging/animation, but I'm still a Freshman, so I have a bit more to learn before I can do stuff like this. :P It's awesome to see what other people have done, though.

I've never really heard of Electronic Imaging and Animation together..is that just a different way of saying digital animation?

@02:09You're welcome :)

And yeah, pretty much. My school has an excellent art program, just a funny way of categorizing majors. :P Technically, I am a Digital Animation major, since I will be putting my energies towards digital animation in the upper level classes for electronic imaging. But to the University, I am an 'Art and Design major, with a focus in Electronic Imaging, with a focus in animation'. Gets confusing to everyone who isn't an art student here, but, what can ya do? :)
