Bo the Creature – Part 2


 

I have finally completed the second part of my video. It took a while, but here it is. Enjoy!

 

Stages


I have not been able to find a clear step by step article or tutorial of what the animation process is. Since some people have asked me how it is done, I have decided to post at least one post a day about it. The title will be Stage_ and I will try to explain as clear as possible each stage of the process. Of course there are many ways to achieve something, but if you have no idea what to do, you can start here. Stay updated and subscribe if you haven’t done so yet!


The long awaited video. At last it is here. After 5 months of work, it is complete. It might seem like a little, for such a long span of time, but I have been busy, and this was a side project. Enjoy!

First Background Done!


This is the first background I finished for the start of my cartoon series: 

wldI created it using Anime Studio Pro and Photoshop 🙂

New Farnham


Ok, not completely new but definitely improved. Gave him more…shape I guess.

Farnham stars in his own movie (that’s what all the backgrounds are for actually). Some sketches of costume ideas:

Full Body


Here’s the completed version of Farnham overall. I made the legs longer. Luckily I didn’t rig both sides first. I might add some details or textures later but right now here’s what I have:

Emooootions!!!


Unlike with Abigail, I made the emotions before I made the body. However I will start with the body before I do the head turns. Here are some samples of Farnham’s emotions:

I started worki…


I started working on a new character. I’m not going to write to much about him mainly because I haven’t figured out what I am going to do for sure with him. His name is Farnham. Here’s what I have so far:

Abigail: Back head turn


A real quick head turn of Abigail. I just have to check the front head turn and I will be done with Abigail!

A drawing of Abigail


A quick drawing I did using Prismacolor Color Pencils of Abigail:

Abigail’s first steps!


The first video is  a generic walk. The second has more to it as you will see.  The first one was edited a little after I posted this.


I decided to make the pants longer because of how the leg looked before. I also added gradient to the skin and eyes. I added a bow as well. Here it is:

Here is how it looked before when you bent the leg:

And now:

I will add gradient to make it look better. I have been having problems with gradients in AS. I had to bind every body part to a bone using the Bind Layer tool. I will keep searching for another way to do it though.

Bo in his saucer


Abigail


This little girl is Bo’s biggest fan. I just drew a sketch of her and will start “buiding” her soon. Any suggestions are welcome.
