I know there are a ton of people out there who love anime and have so many stories in their minds ready to be told.     I’m sure the dream is to go to Japan, find a company they can submit to and have their stuff made into anime.

They wish they could make their own but lack the actual talent to do so.  Plus no money.  This concept is also the same if you are trying to make a comic or manga.  It is still a challenge for the person who can’t draw.  So what can you do?

Collab?  Nope folks won’t really collab with you.  I know.  I tried.  So what can you do?

Well you may have to spend some money but maybe not as much as you think.

Brian Haberlin showed a really cool way to make comics.  I posted here earlier about it using Poser.

This is a great way to make a comic/manga without knowing necessarily how to draw.

But what if you don’t want to use the standard Poser characters?  Hire someone to model and rig the characters for you.  Now I know it costs money for this but the cool thing is this.   You can find modelers out there who will work with you.   Start simple and work your way up.

Sketchfab is a great place to find some modelers.

I’m doing a search right now for my newest characters and my current comic.

 

 

This reminded me of those Japanese, novels/games.  Someone let me know the name.    I have been enjoying this.  I think he also uses a psuedo 3d method to create this animated series.

If you want to tell your story here is another way to do it.

 

I love 2d work very much.  I love it even more when both 3d is used to bring an extra upgrade in quality.  The other day I was checking out Mike Inel’s work.  I found this little video where Mike uses a type of mocap, rotoscoping and then tracing over the 3d work.  I’ll let you check out the process here below.

 

I noticed Otaking using a similiar process.  I think this helps take his 2d to the next level.

 

This should help you in your endeavors especially if you are not the best artist.    You could easily use Poser characters and trace over them in a 2d package.   Daz is free and you could do the same thing.  Go for it.  Make your own anime today.
